Delicate Steve

Delicate Steve, Matt Northrup 

When: Sun., July 24, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $9-10

Wondervisions is the debut LP by Steve Marion, a New Jersey guitar-and-effects-wunderkind who records as Delicate Steve. It's not a perfect album, at least in the traditional sense. As best as I can tell, there's no narrative, little care for cohesion and, at best, a modicum of editing. But, as its name subtly implies, Wondervisions is a flood of good ideas that happen to be housed in the same place. From glimmering drones and acoustic majesty to radiant funk and Afro-punk, it's a record about moments of experience and immersion, not side-long repetition and development. Kudos to David Byrne's Luaka Bop for releasing it, then; labels generally look for a story they can sell with debuts, an identity that can be explained and regurgitated. Delicate Steve will have none of that, which means Marion has plenty of pretty much everything you can imagine to offer. With Matt Northup. —Grayson Currin
