Where Is My Mind?: Strand of Oaks’ Timothy Showalter

By now, you may have heard about the tragic story of Timothy Showalter a.k.a. Strand of Oaks losing all his belongings in a fire at the same time his fiancé had decided to leave him, which helped inspire Showalter to write songs for his last album Leave Ruin (La Société Expéditionnaire) with an acoustic guitar on a suburban Philly park bench that he was living on. Well, those days may seem like a distant memory to him now that he lives here in Philly happily married to the love of his life, and his latest album Pope Killdragon (released on eMusic) has been getting some serious blogosphere love. What can we say? We can’t help but root for the guy. He’s a survivor and a helluva songwriter. That’s why we had to invite Strand of Oaks to The Deli’s CMJ Showcase tomorrow night (Oct. 21) at The Living Room. We also took the opportunity to pick his brain. You can see what we found here.


Wazu playing CMJ tonight

A bit darkwave and a bit lo-fi electro, Wazu has been making a name for themselves in LA. These Australian transplants take anyting and everything -- computers, hardware, software, underwear -- and piece it together while songwriting. After one listen, you'll understand why Wazu has worked their way up to #6 on the Deli's lo-fi chart.

October has been busy for the band, playing 6 shows at Canadian Music Week, and a spot tonight in NY for the CMJ Music Marathon. Once they return to LA, they'll be hard at work on their debut EP, due early 2011.

You can take a listen to some of their demos on their MySpace. Lets wish them luck tonight at CMJ, and the Deli will be keeping an eye out for these two.

Black Math "Part of Me"

Atlantic/Pacific plays No Sleep Records CMJ party

Atlantic/Pacific, signed to LA based No Sleep Records, will be performing at the label's CMJ showcase at Party Expo on Wednesday 10.20. The Brooklyn based band plays hazy, discreet folk with sober psychedelic influences. "Sober" in this case means that the reverb dial is under control and the overall arrangement isn't taken hostage by a crazy production - quite the opposite... We are digging the two songs available on their myspace page, this is what Brits call a "perfect hangover band" - yeah, in the UK that's actually an established musical genre: "Hangover Music".
