This meansthat rather than covering whichever band comes to town to play ashow, we focus instead on the artists that belong to the local communityof musicians—i.e. the local music scene. In our NYC blog and printissue, for example, you will only find artists based in NYC.Because of this unique approach our focus is mostly on emergingartists rather than established ones. Also, unlike any other blog ormagazine out there, we allow bands to use our site for exposure throughlocal open blogs, user generated live listings, and self-updatingcharts organized by genre and region. This system tracks the “webbuzz” of ALL bands and is more reliable than any chart system we areaware of—we pasted our regional top 20s in each local page for you tocheck out—you can browse the full charts here www.thedelimagazine.com/charts—they are updated twice a week.This first Deli Austin Issue is an exception for us. We thought that theSXSW fest would give us a great opportunity to create some kind of“Best of each scene” issue.This is why you will find pages organized by city in which our local editors(or “chief bloggers”) give you a brief summary of which artists from theirscene you should check out this year in Austin.Hope you’ll find this useful.

SXSW music 2011austin, txmarch 15-20ArtistsFrom:new york cityVisit The Deli New York: nyc.thedelimagazine.comChief Blogger: Paolo De GregorioTwin ShadowMyspace.com/thetwinshadowRIYL: Depeche Mode, The SmithsLuke RathborneMyspace.com/lukerathborneRIYL: Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, Elliot SmithNYC has enjoyed a lively and influential music scene in the pastdecade, and even though 2010 didn’t produce superstars of thecaliber of Vampire Weekend or MGMT, there are still a ton of newand emerging artists competing to steal your heart and ears. If wehad to sum up in a few words what happened in our scene in 2010 we wouldsay: “More ’80s, less Animal Collective, and an awful lot of DIY/Lo-Fi.”ELECTRO-SOUND Last year TwinShadow (voted The Deli’s Best NYCEmerging Artist of 2010) literally came outof nowhere and hit it big with the help ofChris Tyler’s (Grizzly Bear) production, leadingthe revival of the electro-pop sound ofthe 80s, which also inspires dancey duosGames, French Horn Rebellion andHoly Ghost. But not all NYC electronictured side of electronic things, check outBlondes and Tanlines.D.I.Y. or D.I.E. The NYC DIY movementis stronger than ever. New Lo-Fi Brooklynbands with grating recordings and charmingmelodies pop up on a weekly basis, andalthough this scene is getting a little overcrowded,it still bears some undeniable gems,like Oberhofer, Hooray for Earth andTony Castles. On the dreamier/chiller side ofthings check out, Dream Diary, Ducktails,and David Lynch.POPPIFICATION NYC is not necessarilyperceived as a “poppy” scene, but melodi-Biting Tunes By Dean Van NguyenComing off a year that most bands wouldgive their drummer’s right arm for, it’s notsurprising that Fang Island’s Chris Georgesis in an upbeat mood. Reflecting on a 2010that saw the release of the group’s self titled debutalbum, critical acclaim and huge upsurge in theirprofile, the guitarist has spent 2011 just trying tomake sense of it all. “Now that we’ve had a couplemonths off it finally has sunk in,” says Chris. “2010was easily the craziest year of my life. I’m proud ofthe record and I’m pumped that people enjoyed it.”Fang IslandPhoto: Kate Edwardsmusic blinks at what—until a few monthsago—was almost unanimously consideredthe cheesiest of decades. Female frontedIndie Pop artists like MNDR and Danishimport Oh Land seem bound to entertaina non-hipster-only audience for years tocome. On the more experimental/unstrucwww.fangisland.comRIYL: Andrew WK, Maps & AtlasesThat people have “enjoyed” the record may be putting things simply.Among the band’s admirers are indie overlords Pitchfork whobestowed the record with the much sought after “Best New Music”honours (“The night before the review we played a show for oneperson; the bartender,” says Chris. “Zero people showed up and wewere slightly bummed. The next day we played to a little over zeropeople.”). Moreover, The Flaming Lips tapped Fang Island as theiropener for several shows in July.Now based in New York, Fang Island originally formed in Providence,Rhode Island, where they were drawn together with a mutual goal ofwriting positive music, to counteract the aggressive, bummer jamscoming out of the area at the time. “I think the positivity of our musicwas engrained in our personalities as well,” says Chris. “We werethe deli_16 Spring 2011 SXSW

Lia Ices (featured on thelatest Deli NYC cover) with her arrestinglybeautiful release on Jagjaguwar, reconciledus with the sad hemisphere of our emotions,while Alex Winston successfully (andunexpectedly) re-integrated the flair andbaroque melodies of Kate Bush in a modernDIY context. Also! Those of you into nu-soulmust check out Kendra Morris.young, in art college [with] no cares in the world. Weloved playing music together and we were writing analbum for college credit.”PSYCH ROCK NYC also featuresa big psych rock/shoegazer scene ofcourse. Prince Rama made waveslast year, while among the up andcomers you may want to check outThe Vandelles, Quiet Lights,Invisible Days, The DecemberSound, Dead Leaf Echo and heavyhitters Naam.StRAIGHT SHOOTERS NYChosts a gigantic community of musiciansplaying straight guitar rock andmore or less traditional alt rock or folkmusic. Devin Therriault turned someears with his gritty indie rock’n’roll, whileBlack Taxi, The Yes Way and TheDig are noteworthy Alt Rockers. AmongstSongwriters, check out up and comersDaniel Wayne and Luke Rathborne.OUTSIDERS Of course, there are manyNYC artists that don’t strictly belong to anyscene, like Fang Island, Delicate Steve(both of whom are also playing our Saturday dayshow), Rubblebucket and Deli big time favoritesBuke and Gass (not playing in Austin thisyear). This duo builds their own instruments andforges an incredibly original sound that could bedescribed like an industrial mix of Marnie Stern,Bjork and PJ Harvey… eh, just check them out!By the way, Pitchfork, you SO screwed up with thereview of their album, but I guess Deerhoof, LouReed and Laurie Anderson corrected you alreadyby asking B+G to open for them!The Deli’s Web Buzz Charts1.

Each member ofthe band is interested in a different musical genre andI think this mishmash of influences creates our sound.”With so many influences, Fang Island has struggled todefine their sound into a single genre. Instead of listingthe wide variety of artists and bands from which theydrew inspiration, when they first opened a Myspaceaccount they simply described their music as “everyonehigh-fiving everyone.” The aesthetic caught on,and became a staple of the press coverage the bandreceived when their record was released. With fans andwriters seemingly fixated on this strand of their personality,how does the band feel about it now? “It’s funnythat it caught on and kind of became our genre, saysChris. “I think it’s still funny and rings true, but we definitelyheard it a lot this year. I like high fives a lot thoughand I like high fiving fans.”Currently preparing a second record, Chris is buoyantabout Fang Island’s future, promising fans an evolvedsound from what has come before. “We made thealbum [Fang Island] almost three years ago, and wehave matured, musically, leaps and bounds since then.I am ready for the next album. I know we can step it up.”I’ll high five that.Delicate Stevewww.delicatesteve.comRIYL: Brian Eno/David Byrne,Battles, Dirty ProjectorsLiving DaysMyspace.com/livingdaysRIYL: Cars, Elastica, Duran DuranBuke and Gasswww.bukeandgass.comRIYL: Marnie Stern, Deerhoof, PJ HarveyThe VandellesMyspace.com/thevandellesRIYL: Jesus & Mary Chain, RaveonettesBlack Rebel Motorcycle Club

Tranaustin, txmarch 15-20Iwon’t waste my limited 250 or so words on agrandiose intro and will just get to the nittygrittyof what emerging Philly acts you shouldbe looking out for at SXSW.Sun Airway seemed to come almost out of nowhere thispast year to win the Best Emerging Artists Poll for The DeliPhilly with help from their shimmering debut album Nocturneof Exploded Crystal Chandelier, which was released on DeadOceans. The lyrically enriched, dreamy bliss-pop of formerA-siders Jon Barthmus and Patrick Marsceill captivatedPhiladelphia and the world will soon find out why.We already knew Reading Rainbow’s sonic love wassomething to watch out for in 2010. After they had taken thevictory unanimously the previous year in our Best EmergingArtists Poll and narrowly missed repeating as champions thisyear, you could tell that the married duo of Rob Garcia andSarah Everton was ready to step out into the spotlight of thenational music scene, which they did, with their sophomorefull-length Prism Eyes on Hozac Records.Creepoid has been a band for barely over a year now, butthis charismatic outfit filled with the spirit of Kurt Cobain andthat ’90s Grunge angst all heroined out has received plentyof local love from the beginning. With the recent release oftheir kick-ass debut full-length Horse Heaven, you’ll find thatPhilly has another act purged to break out on the nationalfront in 2011.The Penn cognitive science student Francis Tseng has alreadyreceived plenty of national coverage from some of the mostwell-respected major media outlets on the indie music scene.Golden Ages have zeroed in on a sound that simplydoesn’t go unnoticed these days, and they do it well.Reading RainbowGolden AgesPhoto: Charlotte ZollerMyspace.com/levarmotherfuckingburtonRIYL: Times New Viking, Eternal Summers,The Velvet UndergroundThe Deli’sWeb Buzz Charts1.

HOW TO “DO IT”a We Are Scientists guide toROCK STARDOMBy Chris Cain (We Are Scientists)Illustrations by Michelle Kondrich(www.michellekondrich.com)As a founding member of We Are Scientists, I’m regularly asked, “How do you do it?”, “What’syour secret?”, “Why is God’s love for you greater than his love for me?”, and variations alongthese lines. No wonder. As I write this, I’m seated in a spanking new Qantas A380 flyingfrom Sydney to Los Angeles, having just completed a successful run of shows in Australia. I have anaisle seat all to myself. In a few minutes, I’ll be served a hot meal that will include a complimentaryglass of wine or a cocktail, should I be in the mood for it. Later, a snack. Such films as “Gladiator”and “A Beautiful Mind,” as well as contemporary favorites like “Sex & The City 2,” wait at the readyin the seat-back entertainment unit literally inches from my face. As and when desired, I can visit anon-plane restroom. All of this is happening in the middle of the sky, at around 500 miles per hour.the deli_24 Spring 2011 SXSW


Air travel is just one of the many perks that come with my job, so it’s nowonder everybody wants to trade places with me. I’m not about to givethis all up, though, and in any case most of you don’t know the bassparts to all of our songs. So I propose a middle ground: I’ll teach youeverything I know about being a successful music artist—this will allowyou to create your own band and take it straight to the top. In exchange,you leave me the hell alone, except to give me compliments or to offerme free things. But you stop asking me to trade places with you—Idon’t want your job at Panda Express. I was drunk when I said that.Forming The BandThe first step toward getting to fly on airplanes is to form a band.Sounds more difficult than it is. It is a little known and little understoodfact that something like 90% of successful rock bands form at a GuitarCenter. Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, U2, Coldplay, and Lily Allen all got theirstart at Guitar Center when a couple of outgoing musicians who weretesting this or that piece of gear fell into a serendipitous jam. Indeed, ifyou hang out at Guitar Center in any city on any given afternoon, you’llhear half a dozen bands form. You’ll be sitting on a marked-down $399amp with built-in tuner and COSM effects, engulfed in the not-unpleasantcacophony of two dozen assholes fucking around on stringed instruments,when suddenly two, and then three, and then four of those assholesbegin roughly to synchronize their playing in both rhythm and key.The other musician-customers, hearing what you hear, begin to tapertheir own meanderings, the better to witness the burgeoning phenomenon—“theburgeoning,” I guess. And just like that, with no forethoughtor advance notice, twenty lucky sons of guns are listening to the firstSeven Mary Three concert. The lesson is this: if you’re a musician lookingfor a band, budget some time each afternoon for Guitar Center.Weeding Out WeedsWhen you choose your band mates by going to Guitar Center mostafternoons and wanking on mandolin until somebody starts wanking intime on djimbe and somebody else starts wanking in key on pedal steel,you run a certain risk. This approach, though responsible for bands rangingfrom The Killers to The Miles Davis Quartet, has an “implosion” rate ofabout 5%, which is just a clever bit of legalese meaning that every hundredyears or so, a band composed of dudes who met at Guitar Center,jamming, will discover that one among them is not quite right for the joband needs gently to be kicked the fuck out of Smashmouth. This hellishprospect became horrifically real for Guns N Roses, who, a couple ofyears in, had to deal with the fact that drummer Steven Adler was violentlyaddicted to a cocktail of hard drugs, and that his addiction was taking anawful toll on his musicianship, and that his addiction was to a slightly differentcocktail of hard drugs than the rest of Guns N Roses were addictedto, and that this critical difference made it impossible for the band toemploy fewer than a dozen drug dealers full-time, around the clock. Theword came down from management: Guns N Roses’ profile was taking ona vile tarnish in the public eye—the band must limit the number of full-timedrug dealers on official payroll to eight. At a moment like this, when thereputation and performance of the band has been threatened, there islittle choice: the likeminded band members must crawl out from the opiateswamp where they now dwell like hibernating alligators and mutter or insome way signal that they’re fed up with the offending member’s irresponsibility,wayward behavior, and callous disregard for the organization’swellbeing. The lawyers take over from there, making sure that the canceroustumor is extirpated before further sullying occurs. This last bit canbecome messy. A band like GNR has sufficient financial clout to purchasea smooth exit: $2000 was wired into Adler’s account. Later the same dayhe was kidnapped by two ex-LAPD officers, then lobotomized by a bribedprison doctor. Next he was set up with a job in the commissary of an oilatoll 1,500 miles off the coast of Hawaii. Adler has been selling Camels,Penthouse, and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups ever since. He has refusednumerous job applications from both Slash and Izzy Stradlin.RehearsalsRehearsals, though completely necessary to becoming a potent liveband, can be a major drag. They’re loud, the sound is bad, and youhave to hang out with the other people in your band. And there are nogroupies. And no mixed drinks. Not a lot of advice I can give here. Youhave to rehearse if you’re going to be as big as Grizzly Bear. GrizzlyBear rehearses five days a week. Then again, they’re all in relationships,aren’t big drinkers, and they all kinda like each other.DrugsUse everything you can get your hands on—drugs are the wellspringof creativity, the necessary nutrients in any inventor’s mental soil.Anyone who says otherwise is either a religious prig or drowning invanity, a vanity so lavish that he’s unwilling to spend the pedestriancurrency of physical health against the possibility of contributing to arich, millennium-spanning tapestry of intellectual production that willbe man’s bequeathal to the cosmos aeons after his extinction. Evennow, my bloodstream is coursing in toxins. Two ibuprofen taken earlierfor back pain, half a glass of marginal red wine served with dinner, plusan antihistamine I introduced into my system half an hour ago to guardagainst ill effects from the spores this airplane’s closed environment isdoubtless circulating through my lungs even now. The simple fact isthat without these creative lubricants, I’d still be caught in the eddy ofchoosing a name for this essay (“How To ‘Do It’,” thanks).Booking The First Live ShowsIn the studio, time literally is money. What do I mean? Just that for everyhour or day that you spend in the studio, your bill will increase—you’ll haveto pay more ‘money’ at the end of the recording session. So don’t jumpthe gun. Before the money clock starts ticking, iron out all the kinks in yoursongs in front of a live studio audience, ideally on Dave Letterman’s show,Jay Leno’s show, or Conan O’Brien’s show (1993-2009). If for whateverreason you absolutely can’t get onto one of these shows to work on yoursongs, Jimmy Fallon’s show is an acceptable substitute, but avoid lettingmembers of The Roots guest on your set. The Roots, though a perfectlydecent group of musicians, probably won’t be hanging out at the studiowhere you end up recording. Developing a dependency on The Roots earlyon is fast becoming a classic beginner’s mistake; every day new bands arefinding themselves in the studio days after doing Fallon, wondering who’sgoing to add miscellaneous exotic percussion during the bridge, or who’sgoing to reiterate the main vocal melody on a horn during the outro.RecordingOnce the arrangements are locked in and you’ve weeded out anyinvolvement by The Roots, it’s time to lay down some tracks. Here area couple of tips to help you get the most out of your studio session:• Keep your smartphone’s Voice Memo app running during every take.The more expensive and complicated a studio set up is, the more likelyyou are to have problems getting everything to work right—but even ifyou’re recording on a 4-track tape deck, you’re still almost guaranteedto lose at least one take to technical malfunction during the courseof your session. Not if your iPhone is continuously recording! On myband’s latest album, something like 20% of the guitar ended up beingtaken from iPhone recordings after a hard drive mishap during mixingleft us with no alternatives. The reality is that many people prefer thesound of the iPhone tracks, with their marvelous compression! Infact, because several of us were religious about keeping our iPhonesrecording in the studio, we had several mic positions to choose from,and were able to comp together an excellent stereo signal.• Don’t be afraid to get freaky during solos. Whether you’re a guitarist,bassist, drummer, or you play one of the many less-crucial instruments,don’t be afraid to let your freak flag flutter and flap duringsolos! Too many musicians guide their solos down familiar terrain,as though this were their chance to play a Clapton/Van Halen/Valensisolo a little worse than the original. Get freaky! The solo is yourchance to freak yourself out, and if you let it pass you by, not onlywill your reputation as a freak suffer, but so will the track. Remember,when you listen to a song, what are you looking for in a solo? If you’relike most people, you look to the solo to completely freak you out—tochange your entire sense of what can and should be done with musicalinstruments, and to accomplish that in a scary, scary way.The Band’s LookYou’ve got the band, the songs, the album – time to nail the look. Thereare two basic directions you can take with this: daring originality ortasteful adherence to the norms of your scene. The latter is as easy asspending some time with The Deli’s “Where To Shop” section. The formerrequires an additional bit of creative energy, something above andbeyond the actual requirements of music. Think Kiss, Slipknot, LadyGaga. Here are a couple of rich veins that have yet to be mined:the deli_25

kitchen recording equipment newsADK S-7 & A-6www.adkmic.com Review by Shane O’ConnorGear manufacturers far too oftenact like pimps hustling theirgoods under the veil of trendymarketing terms and “celebrity” testimonials.ADK takes a different stance andtalks frankly about what they sell andhow it can aid in the recording process.I received one S-7 and one A-6 large diaphragm condensermicrophone. The build quality of both mics isextremely solid. There is no question that ADK is makingproducts that are meant for serious studio use.The S-7 is an FET based mic intended for high SPLsources such as guitar speaker cabinets or drums. I cranked a number of guitaramps in front of it and it never came close to breaking up. Two pads on the microphonecan be useful to get a less compressed guitar signal.On guitar amps, the S-7 is extremely clean and open but doesn’t fizz out. It is usableas a single mic, especially for cleaner country oriented sources, but it reallyshines in addition to a Shure SM-57. The S-7 worked well further away from thespeaker, and it’s particularly useful for its accurate low end, whichis ideal on chuggy distorted guitars.When placed outside of a kick drum tunnel 3 feet away from thebeater head, the S-7 again gave me a very flattering low end,which I compressed with an 1176 to pull it back up.When placed about 4 feet away from the snare the S-7 gave me auseful mono picture of the entire drum kit without hyping the cymbalsin a harsh manner, which complemented the other drum mics. I shouldnote that the drummer I was testing this with was heavy handed.ADK advertises the A-6 as a more “all around” studio condensermicrophone that is great on acoustic instruments. I placed the microphoneabout 5 inches above middle C on a honky-tonk uprightpiano. I was looking for something to pop out of the mix withoutoverwhelming the guitars. The A-6 nailed it. The dynamics remainedclean and worked well with hefty compression and limiting.I had a few chances to use the A-6 on acoustic guitar and resultswere very satisfying. A slightly brighter mic, the A-6 handled thehigh end EQ boost on jangly acoustic guitars very well.I started testing these mics while unaware of their price point andwas shocked to find out that they are available for under $300each. They are on par or better than similar ones worth 4 times asmuch. If I were selecting microphones for a new studio, a stereopair of each of these would be on my must have list.Mix A Live Show with the iPadwww.presonus.com Review by Paolo De GregorioSome people would do anything with their iPads if theycould. This is probably why PreSonus has releasedStudioLive, the first dedicated wireless control softwarefor a small-format digital console.But it’s not just about doing things the “cool” way. We often go to small to mediumvenues and see live engineers work on the sound in the most unthinkable places(corner of the venue, high up near the ceiling, even on the side of the stage). Studio-Live allows them to leave the (PreSonus) console anywhere it fits and do the soundwhere it should be done (in front of the stage) using the iPad as a wireless remotecontrol. This software controls any PreSonus StudioLive-series digital mixer’s channels,auxes, effects, subs, Fat Channel processors, and more. Custom aux mixescan be simultaneously adjusted by any performer with an iPad!the deli_32 Spring 2011 SXSW
