Americana Music Festival, 9/8/10-9/11/10

Good news folks--The Deli is going to be covering the Americana Music Festival this week! We'll be attending some of the music showcases by our favorite local bands and artists, such as Rayland Baxter, Tristen, Courtney Jaye, and Mary Gauthier, along with the not-so-local bands we dig. You can go here for more festival information, but keep checking back with us for all the juicy deets. (That means "details" for those of you who aren't down with the lingo).--Deli Staff


Callers CD release party - Zebulon, on 09.08

We've always been huge fans of Callers - their debut album was our CD of the Month about 2 years ago. The duo (recently turned trio with the addition of a drummer) will celebrate the release of their sophomore album with a show on 09.08 at Zebulon in Williamsburg. Listening to the free single streaming here, the signature soulful female vocals and understated guitar work are now integrated with more pronounced jazz elements as well as an interesting percussive component brought by the drums. The record, entitled "Life of Love" will be released under Western Vinyl - home to Dirty Projectors, Glass Ghost and Here We Go Magic among others. Callers will also play Littlefield in Park Slope on September 19.



The Giving Tree Band recently unveiled their music video for "Circles," the single of their forthcoming album The Joke, The Threat & The Obvious.

To celebrate the release of their new album The Giving Tree Band will headline a hometown show at the House of Blues in Chicago this Friday September 10th.


The Frontier is Wild, and Now Has a Festival

The very first annual Wild Frontier Fest approaches rapidly, featuring a horn o' plenty, or a cornucopia, or a wild and free bounty, or even a deluge of Austin bands, such as, in no particular order: Follow That Bird, Oh No Oh My, Sip Sip (currently running away with our Artist of the Month poll), Quiet Company, Shapes Have Fangs, Ringo Deathstarr, the Frontier Brothers (because what would a Frontier Fest be without its brethren?), Danny Malone, and many more, 26 bands in all. All put together by the Vagabond Collective and happening this Saturday, that's 9/11, at the Mohawk, for the price of $12. Which is remarkable. 

Full lineup is right here


MiM0SA puts a spell on us all

MiM0SA by Angela Dawn

22-year-old producer phenom, MiM0SA, will be dropping his glitched up, dubstepped, mini-LP Silver Lining on October 4th on Multi Music Records. A month is too long to wait, so we're sharing his blistering remix of Nina Simone's classic 'I Put a Spell on You' as a free download. Classic, groovy, and a bit gritty, it'll conjure up inflences like trip-hop masters Massive Attack.

If you like other LA producers like Rusko or Baths (A Deli LA personal favorite) then you'll fall right in line with MiM0SA. He's been making waves at festivals like Cochella and Burning Man, and he's embarking on a US tour that will bring him to the Music Box/Henry Fonda on Sept. 23rd.
