He Was Worse Than The Needle He Gave You by Delta Mirror
Who: Delta Mirror from Los Angeles.
What: New signee to Lefse Records (Neon Indian, Phaseone), heres LAs gothtronic Delta Mirror with a shoegazy psych trip off the upcoming release of Machines That Listen in March. Merging brooding vocals (reminding me of Interpols Paul Banks) with boom bap production, the debut sounds haunting, full of ear-tickling electronics, psych layers, and foreboding storytelling. Keeps your eyes peeled for spring touring, with a stop at SXSW.
Song: He Was Worse Than The Needle He Gave You.
