Zodiac Death Valley Celebrates Vinyl Release at BOTH - 10/3

The San Francisco based alternative psych band, Zodiac Death Valley will be celebrating the release of their second album, Desert Bohéme at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco tomorrow night (October 3rd).

The band will be supported by a great line up that includes: JJUU JJUU (LA), Down and Outlaws (SF) and The Turn Turn Turn (SF members of The Love Dimension, The Lotus Moons, The Gregors). This is going to be one of those nights where you´re going to run into the who´s who of the local music scene.

You´re not going to want to miss Zodiac Death Valley as Nic Abodeely’s entrancing words slither in a deep baritone before thrusting you into honest-to-god rock n’ roll anthemic nirvana and a chorus that will be inside you from then on. Jordan Villa’s guitar work deftly navigates from atmosphere, hook, to solo. Nate Ricker’s keys and organ immediately commands a psychedelic vein pumping throughout the collective musical body. Daniel Burns’ bass comes in crashing the party with a thunderous chug while Landon Cisneros (drums) and Tyler Jones (percussion) bring the drums that will have you hungover the next day.

Head down to Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco tomorrow night!
You can also download the album via iTunes.





For fans of Syd Barrett: Real Life Buildings play Baby's All Right tonight (10.02)

Although most indie rock fans think to Pavement's Steven Malkmus as the father of lo-fi rock and the slacker attitude applied to the genre, British mad genius - and Pink Floyd founder - Syd Barret anticipated this trend in his three, beautiful, post-Pink Folyd/pre-madness solo records from the early '70s. Matthew Van Asselt's band Real Life Buildings sounds to us like he's heavily inspired by Barret's casual singing, lazy melodies (as in "Black Kettle") and preference for an overall aesthetic that predilects semi-unfinished sounding recordings (check out opener "In The Sky Today"). The band's sound is also filtered through the lens of the 90's US college rock, with distorted power chords often taking over the reigns. Check out our favorite song "It Snowed," which also features a rare banjo in the chorus. You can see Real Life Buildings live at Baby's All Right tonight (10.02)

Deli Readers,

I know, it seems like we put our latest issue out just the other day - but no, we haven't switched to monthly. It's just that the fall in NYC is a busy time for us, and with CMJ week and our NYC Synth Expo (linked to BEMF) coming up, there's a lot to write about.

Here's our 44th issue of The Deli NYC (one of our finest!). Check out cover band Stolen Jars, they'll be performing at one of the (several) Deli CMJ 2015 shows!
