Migrant Kids

Migrant Kids Album Release, 9/24/13, Show 8/15/13 @ The Parish w/ Home By Hovercraft

Spinning, trancing vocals through ambient chords, Migrant Kids' music acts to posses listeners. They describe it as a drug trip, and that captures dead on what I remember feeling the first time I listened Migrant Kids' music: it clouded my thoughts and took me over. In describing their sound alone, the chill vibes of their instrumentals full of other worldly sounds riding on the beat of Bryan O’Flynn’s drums along with Miguel Ojeda and John Zakoor’s hushed, but sensual and powerful voices, puts me somewhere between a heart attack and passing out.

The first time I listened to Migrant Kids was not only painful because it was just too good, it was painful because there was only one song available at that point. As a lucky writer for The Deli, I got a sneak peek at their new album and it couldn't be more satisfying than the rush of a good hit. One of their singles and the song that originally drew me in, "Canvas of Me" has haunting lyrics, dripping in heartbreak: "I've drawn myself out of your blood. You can't stop this from drying." They really go right for the feels.

Their songs lead you through a web of poetics where you'll encounter fear, uncertainty, and depression as the album takes you through the many stages of a breakup. Be sure to check out their new self titled album (along with my personal favorite “Act I”) 9/24/2013 and catch them at their album release show 9/27/13 at Spider House Ballroom. In the meantime, head over to The Parish on 8/15/13 to see Migrant Kids live with Home By Hovercraft. —Written by Katy Glass 


Free Week End

They say all good things must come to an end.  (We don't really believe that, but for the sake of putting a metaphysical slant to a post, we'll claim allegiance.)  And, sorry to say, Free Week is no exception.  Waah.

But instead of bawling, let's go out with a BANG.  For tonight, we recommend going Holy Mountain or Red 7 -

Zorch, The Boxing Lesson, Boyfrndz, Tiger Waves, and Residual Kid will be doing the free thing at Holy Mountain tonight. 

And right next door at Red 7, on the inside you can find Troller, Marriage, The Sour Notes, Wet Lungs, and Spray Paint; whilest the outside stage will be taken over by White Walls, Cheap Curls, The Well, and Holy Wave.  

Saturday, we'd go:

The Mohawk has a huge going-out-of-Free-Week show with the outside stage hosting Silent Diane, FEATHERS, BOAN, and Rare Species.  Inside, we'll have The Sour Notes, The Couch, Shivery Shakes, Letting Up Despite Great Faults, and The Plastic Habit.

And Red 7 will host TV Torso, Oh No Oh My, Hundred Visions, and Tiger Waves

Last and definitely not least, you could scoot over to Club DeVille and catch Oh Look OutFriday Avenue, (one of our best of 2012) BorrisokaneKnifight, and Hydra Melody on the outside stage, whilest inside you can see Pop Pistol and Migrant Kids.
