Honyock releases their "#13" EP with video for "The Quarry"

Over the past few months, Honyock have been hard at work keep their musical output fresh. Their latest EP, #13, features four new tracks including "The Quarry", a single the band released back in June along with a lyric video. But Honyock -- like plenty of other bands -- have been making music for good. At the beginning of June, Honyock gave the track "Boutonniè€re" to Park The Van Records' banded against racism compilation, with all proceeds going towards the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. And while they had postponed the release of "The Quarry" and #13 at the beginning of June in order to give attention to more pressing matters, both the single and album are now out, along with the video for "The Quarry". You can watch the latter below. - Will Sisskind

   

Sacramento's psych-slackers Honyock join Surfer Blood at the Blue Lamp

Listening to the slippery, psychedelic folk rock of Sacramento’s four-piece Honyock is like looking at an old picture of the city that they hail from. Their Demo E.P., which begins on the explosive track “Heather” (streaming below), is a fully-fleshed ode to folk with stoner-rock sensibilities heavy enough for them to accurately brand themselves as “Peyote-Tonk.” The surreality with which they paint their music - audible in the classic, and surprisingly dynamic, psychedelic guitar distortions - is combined with an unexpected edge that is impossible to get enough of. They recently joined indie veterans Surfer Blood at the Blue Lamp for a show. Keep an eye out for their next live show announcement here at The Deli. - Lilly Milman
