Oberhofer Release Two Tracks; Extend U.S. Winter Tour


Tacoma, Washington, via Brooklyn band Oberhofer have not one, but two releases ready to hit the ears of their diehard fans: both “Petz” and “Away Frm U” are available for download, via RCRD LBL. The new tracks find the power pop band continuing to hone their sound, creating jaunty songs that juxtapose lush lyrics full of longing with percussive beats and staggering guitars. Oberhofer wowed both critics and audiences at CMJ 2010- performing daily sets for the entire duration of the festival, and winning them the applause of critics from Stereogum, Brooklyn Vegan, L Magazine, and The New York Times.

In addition, the guys will be continuing their trek across the U.S., adding a handful of dates to an already ambitious roster of cities and venues. Full tour dates below:

Who is Middle Brother?

Earlier this week, Partisan Records made a huge announcement; Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, John McCauley of Deer Tick, and Matthew Vasquez of Delta Spirit have joined forces to create Middle Brother. Since the trio played their tiny, late-night, unannounced event at CMJ under the moniker “MG&V,” there have been whispers that a side project wasn’t far off. But, little did we know that the guys had already wrapped their debut record, which is set for a March 1st, 2011 release date.

Middle Brother will be playing a one-off show December 20 at the Troubadour in Los Angeles  to benefit Invisible Children. That show will also feature an acoustic McCauley set.

Its been nearly a month since Deluka released their debut album, You Are the Night, on Vel Records. During that time, ZINK Magazine named them “ [The] U.K.’s best kept secret,” they played several shows at CMJ, and more recently Innerparty System remixed their song “OMFG.” The remix is an electrifying take on the already impressive song, and thanks to The Street Date its available for free download HERE.

Baeble is also hosting a live performance from Deluka, which can be viewed HERE.

Tour Dates:
