Psych





Weekend Warrior - May 17 - 19

Having hosted innumerable historic evenings, a legendary landmark, The Troc, commemorates with its Last Local Band Blowout Sunday. The billing is loaded with the venue’s Philly favorites, which include Pissed Jeans, Stinking Lizaveta, Dandelion, and The Three 4 Tens among others. It’s difficult to imagine how the Center City building may change, but hopefully our musical memories will last forever. You will be missed (well, maybe not the hard-ass security;-).

And speaking of missing, Kyle Gilbride’s Missing Earth is part of a stacked show tomorrow evening at Planet Phitness. There’s a mellow, meandering-through-one's-thoughts lyricism, with a celestial backdrop that propels ahead, found in the project’s compositions. A meditative, synth-centric sound saturates. The blissful blitz of contagious energy-elevating, emotive-channeling, power-pop, known as Psychic Flowers, will also be on display. Bookended by a pair of Boston outfits in Fucko and Sundog, the lineup is reinforced by the lush, dreamy melodies and tenacious riff combination of Field Mouse. – Michael Colavita

New Track: "Give & Take" - Long Hots

Third Man Records recently released local garage-psych rockers Long Hots's new single, “Nickle & Dime,” but its B-side, “Give & Take,” is definitely also worth a listen. A menacing, guitar fire and steadfast percussion radiate a primal, uncontrollable aura. Caught in that cavernous, volcanic push & pull dynamic, the heat has been turned up on this side. You can catch Long Hots, alongside Astute Palate, on Monday, June 24 at Ortlieb’s, as part of Richie Records's free concert series.





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.

Verdigirls play Trans-Pecos 05.18 to mark new EP release

Sisters Catherine and Anna Wolk have played music together as Verdigrls for years now, and The Deli once again takes great pride in covering another new release from one of New York's rising indie pop acts. Verdigrls' new EP Small Moves comes out on May 17th; the title track, which we've featured below, has the Wolks' voices echoing over a repeating synth, the squeaking of a cello, and a minimal drum track. The track's detached feeling matches the subject matter of the lyrics, which go into the ennui of being at a party where everyone else is having fun but you. Verdigrls will mark the release of Small Moves at Trans-Pecos on May 18th; Anna Altman and Den-Mate will perform on the bill as well. - Will Sisskind

The Mystery Lights release new video for "Too Much Tension," new album out 05.10

Unpretentious and ridiculously tight, The Mystery Lights continue to cruise along as one of rock’n'roll's most noteworthy acts. The piercing riffs of their latest single “Too Much Tension” are cut from the same cloth as acid rock bands of the ‘60s like Count Five. The staunch drum beat that propels the song forward hypnotizes with flair and helps drive home the track’s poised vocals. The confidence that exudes from the NYC quintet is true to the bravado of the golden era of rock'n'roll and contributes to the group's allure. The track's accompanying lo-fi-styled video pays homage to their urban roots and garage rock sound. Their new album Too Much Tension! will be released on May 10. We got the music video for you below. - Rene Cobar
