"Strange Cultures
"
mp3

After literally and figuratively creating an impressive amount of buzz with their debut album and two follow up EPs, Baltimore's up and comers Weekends have recently released their first full length record, titled Strange Cultures. Like similar two-man guitar-drums bands No Age and Japandroids, Weekends' Brendan Sullivan and Adam Lempel produce a chaos of sound, full of texture and depth that would make many other larger bands painfully jealous. In their newest collection of songs, Weekends splash a thin shimmery veil of tropical vibes over a mess of noise rock, transforming a seemingly schizophrenic cacophony of guitar wails into something melodic, foot stompingly powerful, and entirely enjoyable. Strange Cultures finds the band bringing all facets of their sound to the table, making for an eclectic combination of head-swirling fuzz that sees the vocals taking a back seat to the scorching guitar lines and rock solid drum licks. The mostly instrumental closer, "Raingirls" is emblematic of their sun-soaked, axe-thrashing sound, part surfer-brah, part punk rocker.

The Deli announces 7 stages at the CMJ Music Marathon 2010

Deli Readers,

We've been working very hard to take as many bands as possible to this year's CMJ Music Marathon. As a matter of fact we aren't 100% finished with booking yet, but close enough to announce that we will have 6 shows and 7 stages during CMJ 2010 - in 5 different venues on 4 different days! As usual, there will be a smosgarboard of bands (around 50) mostly from NYC - including Keepaway, Oberhofer, Brahms, Bear Hands, Anni Rossi, Buke and Gass, The Rassle, The Living Days, Electric Tickle Machine, Chappo... and a welcome bunch of "foreigners" from other scenes we cover, like buzz-bands Blackbird Blackbird (SF), Bad Cop (Nashville), and Strand of Oaks (Philly).

SEE HERE FOR 99% FINAL SCHEDULE

We would also like to thank the 950+ artists that submitted through The Deli to play one of our CMJ parties - a dozen of them were selected by us and the venues. We really wish we could have picked more, it was a heart breaking process...

By the way, if your band wasn't selected for CMJ 2010, you may want to check out this article we wrote just for you, about how to improve your chances to be part of it next year. Hope you find it helpful!

Cheers!
The Deli Staff

 





Chesapeake's The Hunts to play Landmark Music Festival, 9/26

Seven siblings with names that all start with J and radio-ready musical talent is what you’ll find when you listen to The Hunts. Hailing from Chesapeake, VA, this septet masterfully dots their Americana-folk sound with elements of pop, indie, and alt, creating a textured and harmonic mosaic for your ears. Overlapping vocals and cheerfully plucked strings give way to drumbeats and quick violining. Catch an old hit of theirs below and check out their new LP Those Younger Days. They’ll be sharing their heartwarming set on 9/26 at the Landmark Music Festival in DC. -Jonathan Goodwin
