Funky Jam Trio Toadhouse are back in action! These 3 talented musicians from Hamilton have been on a hiatus for about a year....one of them decided to have a kid can you believe that? Good news is they are back and ready to jam their hearts out for you. Their album "Bufo" was released in September of 2014 and all you really have to do is look at the track lengths to know exactly what they're all about. I saw them at the Corktown a few years ago and I don't think they took a break during the whole set I saw. Smooth transitions from part to part as well as song to song. They can improvise if needed and just keep going. All of em sing too. So Hamilton is in line for a wicked night of progressive jam tunes on Friday at the Casbah with Toadhouse, Must Stash Hat and the Human Race. - Kris Gies

Austin Deli Exclusive: Genuine Leather Premieres Rollicking EP “Blossom Child of the Southern Sun"

We’ve got somethin’ special for you Deli readers today! After a year of song writing and production, local indie act Genuine Leather is premiering their new EP “Blossom Child of the Southern Sun" with The Deli today.

Formed in 2011 by Chris Galis, Genuine Leather emerged on the Austin scene around that time with their song “The Viper,” and they’ve been planning the release of Brunch for some time now. “Blossom Child of the Southern Sun” is a rollicking fusion of influences that is equal parts Nada Surf and Band of Horses, with a healthy dose of garage-rock psychedelia thrown in to boot. Using distinctive guitar riffing as the back-bone of the EP, the record sways with a lackadaisical 90s alternative feel that effortlessly breaks into melodic choruses.

Genuine Leather is about to reintroduce themselves to Austin and elsewhere with this nostalgically familiar and deeply infectious sound, so be one of the early listeners by hitting that play button below.

Weekend Warrior, March 25 - 27

As promised, renowned Philly guitarist and composer Chris Forsyth is getting his Solar Motel Band together this Saturday night for a full-band performance of material from their new album The Rarity Of Experience, which came out early this month via No Quarter Records. The album is a rich continuation of the band’s now signature instrumental art-rock style that taps into the sound of New York’s 70’s CBGB scene, where proto-punk influences met 60’s psychedelia. The songs reach for the panoramic immensity of the “Marquee Moon”-style - epic in composition, concept, and scope. Though they are all instrumentals, the songs aren’t just extended jams; each song’s structure seems carefully calculated and punctuated with dynamic transitions and variations on themes that become increasingly familiar. Warming up the stage for Forsyth and the Solar Motel Band is 75 Dollar Bill, a band with a similar knack for the eternal composition. In contrast to Forsyth’s decidedly cosmic scope, 75 Dollar Bill’s style keeps it terrestrial and patently minimalist. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8:30pm, $10-$12, All Ages - Bryce Woodcock

Fog Father make their video debut with "RIP"

Treefort is finally here and many Portland bands are making the trek out to Boise to represent our city. Among them is the infectious indie pop of Fog Father, who've got some great things in the works. Last night was their tour kick off show at Rontoms and today they're making their music video debut with "RIP," off their Razzle Dazzle EP. The video is just at trippy as the song itself and a fair indication of how fun they are onstage.

Fog Father will be rockin a double play day at Treefort, playing the Gritty Birds Showcase with fellow Portlanders Bitch'n & And And And as well as their official Treefort performance at the Linen Building at 7:30pm. If you missed them last night and won't be in Idaho, enjoy "RIP" below.
