The Deli LA Premieres: talker releases cathartic music video for "Intimidated"

Introspective singer-songwriter talker lets her guard down on the video for her latest single, "Intimidated." A stark depiction of a frayed relationship that's in shambles, Celeste Taucher (who goes by the nom de plume talker) sings as if having a conversation with herself before it erupts into a starling finish, where she finds the courage to break the silence that separates them. Nevertheless, she strums her guitar with quiet confidence, fueling her repressed anger until she frees that tension with a rush of crushing guitars. Taucher accomplishes a grunge-informed ballad which teems with cathartic release. 

"Intimidated" is taken from talker's still-unnamed forthcoming EP, which comes out of February 22. Watch the video below. Juan Rodríguez

New Whaler Jr. EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Whaler Jr., a.k.a. Brendan McHale (of RFA) recently posted his new EP. Atta Boy begins with its compact, breezy title track, while “Tired” casually coasts contrasting its self-accessing narrative with a sense of ease, throwing in some guitar sparks for good measure. “Coffee Fiddles” delicately awakens in acoustic strums, as wafts of morning brew welcome the day. This latest batch of recordings brightens with its thoughtful, bouncy bursts of energy.





New Track: "A.D.D." - The City & I

A new song from Colins "Bear" Regisford's The City & I has emerged. "A.D.D." captures a raw, funky, fuzz-punk tone. There’s a genre-melding, guitar-ripping openness to the track. It's in your face and heavy yet exudes an intimate vulnerability. Hopefully this is a precursor to a new album, a long-awaited follow-up to his debut Downer. (Photo by CJ Harvey)





Foreign Air releases "Used to You" + tours the US

Operating in the intersection between New Wave, EDM, and soul music, Brooklyn via Washington DC Foreign Air have forged a recognizable and original style, while releasing a series of incredibly catchy songs. First single Free Animal put them on the right path, but the solid 2016 EP For the Light already included another noteworthy track (In the Shadows), which climbed the digital charts and helped keep the name "hot." After that initial burst, the band has managed to keep their fans' attention alive through the constant release of several other quality singles. Their latest, entitled "Used to You" (streaming below), is a glo-fi mid-tempo that flirts with trip hop and Moby's looped soul samples. The duo just announced a month-long North American tour that will take them to Austin during SXSW and back to Baby's All Right on April 9th. 





Deathlist Song Release

This past month Deathlist released a new song, “8 Eyes” off their upcoming album A Canyon. Elusive and sly, “8 Eyes” is a hard song to get a hold of. However, that just means it’s all the more rewarding when you do, even if it’s only for a moment. The anxiety-packed lyrics provide the right amount of tension for the more cheerful riffs and beats present in the song. Listening to it is a hypnotic, immersive experience. It brings up a lot of feelings. Getting a glimpse of that one sliver of moonlight on an otherwise dark night. The first breath of cold, fresh air taken after dancing in a packed, sweaty crowd. It’s a great song to start the year off with.
 
Deathlist's album release party will be taking place at The Fixin' To, Sunday February 9th. Abronia will also be playing a set, along with new project John-Paul H.
