Delicate Steve with Lazlo Hollyfeld and Love Scenes

Delicate Steve with Lazlo Hollyfeld and Love Scenes

Sunday, August 5

Can personality score you a record contract? Maybe. It happened for Delicate Steve. An A&R man from Luaka Bop Records discovered the R&B five-piece sitting in a strip mall in New Jersey having a bizarre conversation about Prince, Led Zeppelin, dump trucks and box kites, and after a meeting in a Chinese food restaurant the band was signed. The result was their debut album Wondervisions, a happy off-the-wall instrumental pop album with influences that range from Vampire Weekend to Orbital, Radiohead, and The Wizard of Oz. This month the band released their second record, Positive Force, a strange, roaming instrumental R&B record full of harmonic vocals, virtuosic guitar solos, and an all around trippy atmosphere. Personality may have gotten this band in the door, but they’ve proven their musical skills with these two albums. Joining Delicate Steve when the band comes to the Mohawk Place on Sunday (Aug 5) are Buffalo’s Lazlo Hollyfeld and Love Scenes. As veterans of the scene, Lazlo Hollyfeld continue to pump out their instrumental post-rock sounds while Love Scenes duo Leah Loefke and TJ Grace play in support of their recently released sophomore record Blissed Out Youth—cory perla
