Vow of Volition Make the Final Round of the Battle for Warped Tour

The Vans Warped Tour was the first festival for many of us back in the day. As young'ns, it's likely we didn't necessarily think about all that went into figuring out the bands to book and play the whole shebang. Part of that process, at least locally, seems to be through a series "battle of the bands" style competitions specifically for landing a spot on the fest. Quite a few Portland bands have been furiously playing against one another for said spot, and djent/prog metal act Vow of Volition are one of the acts that made it to the finals.

Warped Tour was always the type of festival that included much in the realm of pop punk, punk punk, emo and metal, so Vow of Volition's advancement to the final round is no surprise. Their incredibly technical, at times jazzy metal stands out in Portland's pretty linear popular music scene, and is much worthy of the attention its getting.

Those that want to support Vow of Volition in driving home the permanent spot can go to the Battle for Warped Tour finals Saturday at the Hawthorne Theatre.





Meernaa releases "Wildest Eyes" videos + announces debut EP

There are few words that can describe the intimate, synth-psych sounds of Oakland’s Meernaa. Or, perhaps, too many: fresh, relevant, relaxing, soulful—maybe, at times, even solipsistic. But these only seem to scratch the surface. So, let’s just focus on their newest video, “Wildest Eyes” (streaming below), which is also the first single to be released off their forthcoming debut EP Strange Life. Both track and video alike soothe, while something stirs under the surface; there’s an anxiousness that can’t quite be pinned down. An urgency that pushes itself to the forefront of front woman Carly Bond’s jazzy vocals, and then pulls away just as quickly as it came. It’s exciting, it’s new, and it’s Oakland doing what it does best: inspiring innovative art. The rest of the EP will be out in June, which just can’t come soon enough. - Lilly Milman





New Track: "Mind Eraser" - CRUISR

The day has been dreary, but the music doesn’t need to coincide. “Mind Eraser,” the new single from CRUISR, exuberantly addresses the necessity of moving forward and leaving an individual/situation in the rearview. The pleasant, energetic approach jumps over the emotional/mental hurdles, and dares you to get down rather than wallowing in the downs. Hit that reset button, and enjoy.

New Michul Kuun Album/Video Available for Streaming & Download

Stayed Inside Today, the new album and video from Michul Kuun (a.k.a. NAH), is now available for your listening/viewing pleasure. Sit back, sip a beverage, and watch the world go by your window as the glitchy, electronic grooves take hold. Enter a weirdly wonderful, warped world where sonics come at you from a variety of unexpected angles. There’s a strange, futuristic spin as one assimilates to the unknown surroundings now being inhabited. Melding scenes of serenity and chaos, a unique atmosphere is encountered. Is the outside world being thrown off its axis, or are we?

Our most faithful readers might remember NYC electro-pop duo Sofi Tukker on the cover of 2016 electronic issue of The Deli Magazine. Well, the band recently landed a sweet deal with Apple for the use of an excerpt of their song Batshit in the latest iPhone 8 ad (which is literally everywhere these days). The guys just released their debut album Treehouse and will celebrate it with a live performance at Brooklyn Steel on April 21st.
