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.





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?





Sofi Tukker lands tune on iPhone ad + releases 'Treehouse' LP

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.





Lily and Horn Horse opens for Half Waif at Baby's on 04.27

Lily and Horn Horse is a NYC based avant-pop duo featuring a singer (Lily Konigsberg) and percussionist / brass player (Horn Horse, aka Matt Norman). Except, the brass instruments are so filtered and effected that they often sounds more like synths, if not... horses. Real synths and drum machines are also programmed in their tracks adding texture and occasional bleeps and squeaks. In 2017 alone, they released two purposefully unglued-sounding records featuring more than 20 tracks each. Their songs sound like brilliant semi-developed sketches, built on quirky, sparse electronic foundations and airy vocals following strange melodic paths. SF kings of quick Deerhoof took notice and asked them to open for their fall tour last year. They are now back in NYC and will perform at Baby's All Right on April 27th, opening for Half Waif's Record Release party - do not miss either.





Debut Exmaid LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Exmaid, which unites Miranda Taylor (Hunchback, Full Of Fancy, Black Wine, Noun) with the power trio of Psychic Teens, recently dropped their debut LP, Fair Sex, via SRA/Don Giovanni Records. Taylor leads the way, navigating through narration with a deadpan sincerity. Meanwhile, the passageway is muddied with a menacing, primal grunginess, which looms like an ominous cloud or lingering shadow figure. There’s a brooding, ripping backdrop clearing a course for the clairvoyant vocals. A window of accessibility is opened, and brutal honesty is the result. You can catch Exmaid's record release show this Saturday, April 21 at Long In The Tooth, where they'll be supported by Dialer.
