The Vandelles tour to SXSW

Having been called "Technicolor Noir", The Vandelles' tunes are reminiscent of 60's surf music with a modern psych-rock edge, heavily relying on an insane amount of fuzz and reverb. The band organized a last minute trip to the South West, involving 3 shows in Austin during SXSW on March 16, 17 and 18 - more info about dates and location here. Check out this stunning video of the song "Lovely Weather" they released in 2012. (Photo by Victoria Renard)- (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here).

Screaming Females release video, announce "Ugly", play SXSW

NYC's premium alt rock trio Screaming Females just premiered this video - which is actually grossing us out big time - of the single "It All Means Nothing," included in the new album upcoming album called "Ugly," scheduled for an April release. The band is already on tour with Titus Andronicus and is scheduled to play at SXSW at the Brooklyn Vegan showcase on 03.14 and then at The Bellhouse in Brooklyn on April 6th.


Secret Music releases full length, plays SXSW

I don't know what's going on lately, but it seems like electronic bands are taking over NYC... Secret Music is an electro-rock duo whose sound is almost paradoxically split in two: the keyboards on one side (or rather, in front), and everything else underneath it. If we somehow muted the huge layer of synths and arpeggiators floating on top of their tunes, these guys would sound like an indie rock band with lo-fi inclinations (filtered vocals, casually delivered melodies). The keyboards introduce an 80s dance element that seems almost out of context, but actually contributes to a rather unique sound. The band is releasing today their full length debut produced by Ayad Al Adhamy of Passion Pit, and will take the road for a mini-tour which will include a couple of Austin dates during the SXSW Festival.


Best of the Bay: K. Flay @ Popscene & SXSW

San Francisco’s best lady rapper, K. Flay, is about to make the rounds, so get your calendar ready. She’ll be headlining a Popscene show on April 5th at Rickshaw Stop, but not before hitting SXSW, of course (Bay Area – represent!). No seriously, she’ll be doing some serious Bay Area representing in Austin as she’s playing the Oakland-based Pandora Party on March 14th at Antone’s, the SF-based Noise Pop Fest show on March 16th at the Red Eyed Fly and lastly, although they’ve got nothing to do with the Bay, the Baeble Music Party on March 17th at Peckerheads.

Not familiar with K. Flay? Download her latest EP, Eyes Shut, for free on her website or check out her spot on Last Call with Carson Daly. If it's not obvious by her three South By slots, she’s not to be missed. And duuhhh, Bay Area peeps know that K. Flay’s Popscene show is what’s good on April 5th.
