New Music Video: "Nothing" - Fleabite

NVM, the new EP from the quartet of Fleabite, is slated for release on June 29 via Salinas Records. The band finds Ali Donohue (Swanning, Waxahatchee) and Chelsea Dirck (Missing EarthYowler) joining forces with Aye Nako’s Joe McCann and Jade Payne. In their new video for the single “Nothing,” clay stop-motion is utilized, exhibiting a playful side as the song acknowledges regret in hindsight. It's a raw-around-the-edges quick-hitter. The group is set to head out on tour in July, and they'll be kicking things off in Philly on Tuesday, July 10 at a yet-to-be-announced location.





New Music Video: "Zero Day" - Nothing

Nothing recently shared the new video for “Zero Day,” the first single from their forthcoming album, Dance On The Blacktop, due out August 24 via Relapse Records. Directed by Kevin Haus, ominous clouds hang overhead as the band of pallbearers carries frontman Nicky Palermo's body through the streets of Philadelphia, surrounded by a parade of Mummers and Eagles fans. The melodic buzz carries a heavy undertone, even during its points of celebration. Supported by Swirlies, Big Bite, and Smut, the band is slated to headline Union Transfer on Saturday October 6.

A Deli Premiere: Locus Pocus's apocalyptic self-titled LP

Earlier this year, The Deli SF had the pleasure of premiering the single “Doctor’s Doctor” from San Francisco’s jangly psych outfit Locus Pocus. Now, the five-piece is back — but this time, with a full-length, self-titled LP, which The Deli SF is happy to be premiering once again.

Collectively, the band explained: “Locus Pocus (originally titled Cool Color Happiness) is about finding meaning and wellness amidst feelings of isolation and doom.” Although the same psychedelic side that appears in earlier releases comes out in tracks like “Game To Lose” and “Cool Color Happiness,” others — like opening track “Getting Creepy” or the central “Big White Car” — set a decidedly more punk tone for this apocalyptic record (note: the release date, June 6 at 6 a.m.) This fast-paced, frenzied release is a very welcome surprise from a band that has already managed to create a name for itself in the Bay Area scene. Locus Pocus will be playing an album release show at Cafe du Nord on June 29. - Lilly Milman

The Happy Fits share new single "Grow Back"

Any fan of Vampire Weekend or The Black Keys will recognize and enjoy the dance-friendly, angular indie pop of The Happy Fits. The trio of Jersey-based youngsters have released their latest single "Grow Back" (streaming), a song that will appear on the band's upcoming debut record Concentrate, out this June. "Grow Back" is a hard-driving track about a character named Mrs. Mae who is trying to escape a lobotomy by using a pair of scissors she snuck into her pocket. Musically, it packs more of a punch dynamics-wise than previous singles "Best Tears" and "Achey Bones", also included in the upcoming LP. A music video for "Grow Back" is on its way, but in the mean time you can catch the band live at The Saint in Asbury Park on May 28th.. - Will Sisskind





Meant to Bend stun with eclectic debut EP 'Minimum Frowny' + play Milk Bar (6.6)

On their debut EP Minimum Frowny, the San Francisco-based trio Meant to Bend make the unpredictable accessible. Each track attests to the band’s impeccable musicianship, making heavy use of key changes, frantic guitar licks, and intricate harmonies. From the wonderfully crunchy punk sensibilities of “With the Slope” to the earnest and emotional “Crystal Intent,” Meant to Bend cram in something for everyone in a span of only four tracks. With this project, Nathan Driver (percussion,) Gaku Kelliher (bass/vox,) and Aamir Mauladad (guitar/vox) have beautifully reimagined post-punk, leaving listeners with just one question: When’s the full-length LP coming out? Stream the full EP below in preparation for their show at Milk Bar on June 6. - Lilly Milman
