New Lester Album Available for Streaming & Download

We Could Have Been Anywhere, the new release from Lester, occupies a cozy, mercurial dynamic. As though rocketing through space with a clear singular focus, while the tumultuous nature of the outside world occurs within sight, these songs have an allaying effect. Uniting vulnerable vocals with volatile instrumentation, the band creates an ebb and flow that pulls you in and then pushes you away. It's heavy, and it still feels like home.

Pink Acid Wash - Psych/Noise Rock CMW Set 05.10 at Monarch Tavern

Toronto psych band Pink Acid Wash has released a new single “Grinning”. This noise rock track has a lot going on including a deep drawling vocal over top of a thumping drum beat and dirty bassline. The droning guitar will make your head spin which makes the vocals speak directly to your brain. Pink Acid Wash play a CMW Set on Friday May 10th @ The Monarch Tavern with Brenda, World News and Red Mass. – Kris Gies





New So Totally Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

A somber, slow-burning haze cultivates a particular kind of comfort when listening to In The Shape Of…, the new record from the quartet of So Totally. Those hypnotic qualities, created by the soft, somewhat whispered vocals and the steady progression of music, can quickly be thrown off kilter by jarring instrumental shifts and turns. A cathartic, gentle, swaying calm is combated by the escalating inferno of fuzz that potentially awaits around any given corner. Get comfortable, but maybe not too comfortable.

Reptaliens at the Wonder Ballroom 05.26

Tomorrow, April 25th, Reptaliens will be playing the Wonder Ballroom with Turnover and Turnstile. Reptaliens will be releasing their album Valis the following Thursday, April 26th. The band has been incredibly busy this month, managing to release not one but two music videos. You can check out the Deli's coverage of their music video for "Shuggie II" here. This was in addition to playing shows at SXSW and Treefort. They’ve been amping up all month, so make sure you come out and see what's going down.

Teen Body Share New Album 'Dreamo'

Dreampop continues to evolve in a variety of unexpected ways, with Brooklyn's Teen Body adding an emo element to it on their latest album “Dreamo” via NYC label Broken Circles. As the album title combines those two descriptive genres into one single word, so does the music represented on the eight songs it contains. “Fell Off” immediately strikes a wistful mood through melancholic chords and Shannon Lee's syrupy vocals. “Act Yr Age” opts for a more angular progression to support its over six minutes in length and lyrically dense story on the complications of romantic relationships. “Ballad of Tomboy Jerry” continues the record's pattern of initially restrained instrumentation that ultimately builds to a crescendo, combined with Ms Lee's poignant voice. Bassist Xela French provides the storytelling on “The Draag,” while both singers shine in tandem on the uptempo single “Validation.” The titletrack pulls all of these elements together via exultant guitar hooks, deep resonant bass, slow-groove drumming and those emotive tandem vocals. You can access “Dreamo” through the various listening services here. - Dave Cromwell
