Mega Low releases new single "Reminders," play The Wayfarer on 11/25

On the video for their new single, "Reminders," Mega Low gives a different spin to the performance-based music video. At first, it seems ordinary enough: the Costa Mesa four-piece get ready to record another take inside a studio booth, led by the guidance of an unattached recording engineer. That is until we find what's troubling said engineer, which leads to an eye-opening experience that causes him to pay attention. And as he should, given that the Spencer Askin-led band delivers a mini rock suite that nods to classic rock royalty like Queen and The Beatles with a modern stylistic approach.

Check out the David M. Helman video below, who's worked in the past with artists like The Weeknd, Glass Animals, and Khalid. And if you want to see them live, they're playing a local release show on November 25 at The Wayfarer. - Juan Rodríguez

   

Historian releases “Witchhazel” off forthcoming LP

The Deli is pleased to present “Witchhazel,” the new single off Historian’s forthcoming LP, Distractions. The Los Angeles-based psych rock band is always experimenting with sounds and distortions. “Witchhazel” grows and reverberates and glides through the room with some major Deerhunter moments. Chris Karman’s rich vocals call like an incantation and the tune is reminiscent of Magnetic Fields, with experimental realist pop vibes. Distractions will be released on January 17th 2020. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

Magic Magic Roses and Cindy Nov 20 at Minnesota Street

Magic Magic Roses brings us soothing, sweet folk rock with poppy beats and harmonies that make for happiness. The EP River came out this fall and the video for “River” makes me proud to be a Californian and a curly-haired lady. Magic Magic Roses are sure to put on a delight of a performance. Also on the bill is San Francisco’s Cindy. Self-described sad rock, it's slow shoe gazey with the occasional poppier punkier touches. Their album comes out in 2020 and we're ready, Freddy. Both groups are playing tomorrow night, November 20 at the Minnesota Street Project (presented by Lonesome Station) and we’re happily pushing you attend. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
