Album Premiere: WEEED - You Are The Sky

WEEED is releasing their 6th LP You Are The Sky and The Deli is lucky enough to be the ones to share it with you. While the album is definitely true to the psych-rock heart of the band, its krautrock and occult influences are what really pull you in. Listening to the album in its entirety is akin to walking a path full of twists and turns. One moment you’re peacefully hanging out in a sun-bathed field. The next you’re dancing your hardest in the middle of a hot, sweaty crowd. Above all else, no matter where the band takes you, you’re definitely stoned. It’s incredibly satisfying how WEEED can bring you into that mindset, even if you aren’t actually on any substances. It's fair to say smoking a bowl while playing You Are The Sky is equivalent to eating cheese with wine. So do with that what you will.

WEEED is playing their release show tonight at Mississippi Studios. Dreamdecay and Sea Moss will also be playing sets. You can find out more info here

Moon By You's Swan Song Album and Show

Not many modern acts have truly captured the endearing pop sensabilities of doo wop quite like Moon By You. Having transcended the usual bar most acts in the same genre typically operate at, Moon By You have used their time spent as soulfully psychedelic callback to one of the only good parts of that era to essentially run that part of the local scene. It seems MBY might be at its end, but they've left us a parting gift to soothe our disbanded sadness.

You Are an Alien is the band at its best, of course, showing the musical heights they've reached in such a short time. The album may be coming out on the low, with only limited physical copies to be acquired, but track comparisons to influencers like Temples and Iron Butterfly make it a worthy release to end on.

Tomorrow may be your last time to see Moon By You for the forseeable future, as they'll be playing Mississippi Studios with Washington stoner rock heavy hitters Weeed and the most delightful local acts in a while Reptaliens. We might be in denial, but let's see them off in style.
