Born in January of 2010 in Canterbury, Delta Sleep was driven by a desire to create fun and original, forward-thinking music. Their songs combines guitar driven melodies, held together by jazz influenced percussion and relentless bass, topped with sprinkles of passionate shouts and lulling chants.
To coin Delta Sleep's sound is a hard task indeed, but has once been described by a wise old man as an "enchanted battle between Don Cab and At The Drive-In for the city of Radiohead in the land of Faraquet". Their playfulness invokes sugarcoated riffs, and their hospitality will warm you through on a crisp winter's day.
Austin TX math rockers Hikes offer their third LP Lilt; their debut on Community Records! Recorded with founding Toe guitarist Takaaki Mino when Hikes toured Japan, Lilt is a captivating portrait of the deeply realized union of founding members Nathan Wilkins and Will Kauber and their dynamic math rock sound as it’s become filled out by rhythm section members Chris Long and Colin Jenkins. Drawing as much from their histories in hardcore and metal as they do Austin’s indie pop currents, Hikes restlessly straddle the math rock spectrum from the riffy heaviness of Braid to Toe’s refined jazz fusion and personalize it with pastoral strokes of folk. Rapid mathematical patterns entrance and inculcate one with the outgoing, adventurous character of Hikes and, in four songs, Lilt gives listeners enough to satisfy but enough variation to encourage repeated listens! Releases just in time for the band’s Japan tour with Fall of Troy in June 2017!
The musical equivalent of that shoebox diorama you did in 6th grade.
