A Deli Premiere: "Let's Just Go Surf" with Idle Joy

In their debut single "Let's Just Go Surf" (streaming below), San Francisco's Idle Joy wear a few different hats. The laid-back chorus of "let's just go surf instead" falls directly in line with -- you guessed it -- West Coast surf-rock aesthetics, but there's also a certain bounce (and maybe even a twang, although it's phased out in the second half of the track) that calls back to Americana influences. Not to say this is anywhere near California country, but there's definitely a melting pot of sounds that blend infectiously into an exciting single. When lead singer Tom Conneely wrote the track he said he was "thinking about his own relationship and a friend's relationship, and how easy bonds can suddenly feel the strain of external forces that compromise and complicate nice things." Idle Joy will be playing alongside Wax Statues and Killer Whale at Amnesia tonight to celebrate Wax Statues' album release.

Listen to the Deli's exclusive premiere of "Let's Just Go Surf" below.

Mara Connor unveils 70s-inspired video for "No Fun," release show at Highland Park Bowl on 10/20

Ever feel like you're lost in the crowd? You're physically there, but your mind is just somewhere else. Mara Connor puts that feeling into a visual form on "No Fun," a 70s inspired video that sees the singer-songwriter engage in different social situations, lost adrift, until she finds her true company - herself. "No Fun" is also an elegant charmer - Connor's drawn-out, yet lucid vocals are set against a majestic string arrangement and gleaming jangly guitars, wrapped around a melody that a band like Big Star could've written in their more tender moments. 

"No Fun" is the first single off of Connor's forthcoming debut album. Catch her video release show at Highland Park Bowl tomorrow, October 20. Juan Rodríguez
