Bambara performs "Live on KEXP"

The band Bambara is something like a good marriage. A decade in and their music keeps getting better and better, while still remaining reliably Bambara-ish, fully basking in its tent-revival-post-punk glory. On their most recent LP Stray these Georgia transplants (ok so the Bambara boys moved here nearly a decade ago, but still let's all give a big big-up to that most swingin’-est of swing states) locked themselves in a windowless Brooklyn basement (pre-pandemic mind you) and worked out a new batch of death-rattle songs that’ll make you wanna go out and grab life by its naughty bits so be sure to listen in its entirety if you wanna get that uncanny life-and-death-drive-all-at-once feeling.

Here’s the real reason for this writeup: Bambara is known to absolutely tear it up live and in March they taped a live set just under the lockdown wire which was posted online a couple months ago and which this writer just happened to come across recently. So we need to know, do you miss live music? I mean, do you really miss it? Do you really really miss it and really really need it? Well do you? Yeah? How bad? Ahhhhh ok, I see! Well allow the DELI to be your plug then because this scorching four-song set with interview intermission, taped by the good people at Seattle’s KEXP over on the other coast, captures Bambara’s raw intensity in all its intense rawness. And they seem like really nice guys, awww.

That said lead extemporizer Reid Bateh performs throughout with a street-preacher-foaming-at-the-mouth-level intensity to the point where by the end of this brisk 22 minutes there’s a good chance you’ll be converted. Plus his energy level is matched by the band’s playing and we promise you that barely two minutes into the first song when touring guitarist Sammy Zalta goes all Travis Bickle on his guitar you will damn well wanna go out and massacre a den of pimps yourself. Stay cruel for me, baby, indeed. (Jason Lee)

Paper Jackets take another look at 2020 in new single "I’m Depressed"

Paper Jackets are honest about the state of things this year but do splash some pastels and creams on their sonic portrait aptly titled “I’m Depressed.” The new track, accompanied by a vivid visualizer, is charged up with sticky indie-pop hooks, tambourine jingles, dirty electric guitar sustains, and a thunderous beat that all help it reach anthemic territories. Limited human interactions may be the influence for “I’m Depressed,” but the sound of it is one of community, a loud and colorful one at that. The band is looking ahead to 2021 as it will release Souvnenirs Volume Two, the follow-up to the first volume released this past summer. Stream “I’m Depressed” below for another take on 2020, one honest with all its emotions. - René Cobar

Sleep Still highlights the details in new single "The Panoramic"

Dream-pop music is often judged by the vivid sonic worlds it can create, crystallized sounds that take shape as you listen, by that standard Sleep Still’s new song “The Panoramic” flows with elegance and swells into a wonderful soundscape. Using sharp synth sustains and liquid-like electric guitars buzzing, Sleep Still paints the track as it rides a mighty beat and follows the refined vocals of lead singer Mariam McCarthy towards the song’s whirlwind instrumental finale. The music video for the song is simple and powerful in its imagery: sonic patterns made human, vulnerable, and empowered at once. Rest and reflection exist in this new entry by Sleep Still; stream the new video below for a closer look at the movements that make us whole. - René Cobar
