The Auras @ Lee's Palace

Hailing from the Greater Toronto Area, a 6 piece psycadellic-garage-pop-rock band, The Auras. I recently found a copy of their EP2 from 2014 and was thoroughly impressed with their catchy tripped out jingles. Listening to the 5 song EP takes you on a ride through the solar system of your mind. It keeps your attention as much as it makes you completely zone out. More recently they have released another EP alongside singer Tess Parks for the track "I Believe In Everything" and her lazy vocals in this track fits the Auras...aura. You won't be able to keep up with all the noise action that comes around so beautifully together. If you're into the whole shoegaze thing you'll dig the Auras and you can see them LIVE at Lee's Palace tomorrow opening up for Ringo Deathstarr.                    - Kris 'Big City' Gies

We'll Go Machete's FIrst Album in a Long Time is a Summer Screamer

MMMmmmmmmmyayah, some heavy shit for ya up in this hot ass week. We here at The Deli dig showin' off some of the genres that aren't always as much in the limelight in Austin as others, and so we're gotdamn pickled to be able to throw you some good ole damn ole hard rocking music today, compliments of Big Chords and Shoutyscreams act We'll Go Machete. These guys released their first album in a while, the (we assume) jokingly titled Smile Club, on July 7, and anyone who was ever into post-hardcore shit like Fugazi, At the Drive-In etc. will eat this shit up they was Jaws from James Bond and metal was a viable foodgroup. There's somethin' artsier and weirder in here as well, with some really strange structures and experimentation with making guitars churn out some fucked up noises, and that the band name checks both Melvins and Slint in the info about this album says a lot about what you can expect. If you gots some pent up aggression and frustration goin' on this summer (who are we kidding, it's 2015, that's everybody) and wanna churn and burn along with some fucking music from the heavy side of the city, you can't do better than Smile Club.

Black Rabbit's Red Flannel Hash Delivers Powerful Rock n' Roll Punch

Red Flannel Hash, the latest record from Burlington, VT's Black Rabbit, is bursting at the seams with enough hard, fast guitar riffs to keep your head bouncing for weeks. My favorite track off the record is "Sayonara", with its catchy chorus and rowdy guitar solo. The song is over so quickly that by the time it's finished, you're left wondering: "what was that and why was it so incredibly awesome?"

For more info about the band, check out their Facebook page.

Video Premiere: An Intimate Evening with Michael Shaw – Now You Know

We’re proud to premiere the film noir, short film style music video for Now You Know from the San Francisco based rock musician, An Intimate Evening with Michael Shaw. Now You Know is a track from Shaw’s 2015 album, This is It which was independently released last month. The music video is shot in a thick, stark black and white tone and tells the story of the indiscretions of a young priest. The video is not your usual independent music video, choosing to embed itself within an "era ambiguous" plot of the most traditional taboo, but that's why we like it.

"The lyrics for "Now You Know" address the struggle for truth and honesty in a relationship, and the resulting fallout from such candor. The song chronicles me coming to terms with someone who had me on a pedestal.

With the video, we wanted to capture the tension of the lyrics in the song, while not being literal with the narrative. Working with the director, Ian Colon, and the producer, Jamie Shaw, we arrived at something heavily inspired by The Maltese Falcon and Lolita. The video was shot at some of the most iconic locations in the San Francisco Bay Area - a private dock in Sausalito, St. Hilary's in Tiburon and the streets of North Beach.

While shooting the hotel scene in the early hours of the morning in North Beach, our hazer set off the hotel's fire alarm. So at one in the morning, the whole hotel was evacuated. The crew threw a blanket over the hazer and took off down the street with it under their arms before anybody caught on. We found ourselves out in the street with about 100 tourists in their pajamas and the SFFD rushing up to the hotel in two fire trucks, with sirens blaring. So, who set off their fire alarm that night? Now you know.”Michael Shaw

Check out this video and purchase the album via Itunes.

Dressed for the Occasion Invite You to "The Devil's Rodeo"

Boston’s favorite road-house rock and roll band, Dressed for the Occasion, transports listeners to a fantastical world “somewhere out in the western desert” in their new single, The Devil’s Rodeo.  Two parts mythic adventure, one part pure escapism, this song hooks you from the first twang of the slide guitar. Lead singer Addison Chase imbues poetic lyrics with equal parts grit and soul and leads listeners down an enthralling rabbit hole, while electric guitarist Pat Hopkins’ explosive riffs dance with the promise of a dangerous adventure. Catch them live at The Middle East Downstairs on Friday, September 4th.
