[MP3] Delicate Steve – “Two Lovers”

♫ Delicate Steve – Two Lovers

  • Who: Steve
  • What: Hammock grooves, like Panama, Cookies, My Great Ghost
  • Where: Fredon, New Jersey + Facebook
  • When: LP Positive Force is out July 10th.
  • Why: Hot off the tails of one of the best music videos of 2011, Delicate Steve is blowing up these days. He just booked a tour with Yeasayer and dropped this tender plucker. I like the sound of Delicate Steve getting in touch with his moniker. Plus, 2 has always been my favorite number of lovers!

Sometimes too many cooks spoil the stew. And sometimes too many cooks means that there are just more naked people in the hot tub. Enjoy. Just don’t get pruny.

The 25 Best MUSIC VIDEOS of 2011

Every once in a while I meet someone who casually mentions that music videos are dead and I’m always shocked. Music videos have never been more alive and vibrant than they are now in the age of video democracy online. This post is a celebration of the creative spirit that fights every day to set great songs to even better visuals. You guys are my heroes.

Watch the videos in a countdown stye playlist below or continue on to catch them embedded 1-by-1 with my woefully minimal commentary.

[MP3] Delicate Steve – “Butterfly”

Don’t hold your breath for any lyrics here because you aren’t going to get any. In fact, don’t hold your breath at all because you are gonna need it to call your buddy and tell him you just heard this song by Delicate Steve and it’s not really that delicate but it’s definitely made by a dude named Steve and they should check it out.

I discovered Delicate Steve from Fairly Coherent but there are some way more interesting stories of people discovering him that involve Chuck Klosterman and “40 musical instruments.” Delicate Steve has two albums out, one with indie drummer (Wavves) Zach Hill. Peep his Bandcamp for streaming action.
