Delicate Steve On World Cafe
Wed, 22 Jun 2011 14:00:00 -0400
Delicate Steve got a lot of attention early this year when the band's debut album, Wondervisions, was released with a prank press release written by rock critic Chuck Klosterman. The parody, which many took at face value, described Delicate Steve as "the wordless New Jersey U2" and claimed that bandleader Steve Marion played more than 40 instruments.
Well, U2 they ain't, and Marion mostly plays guitar, but Delicate Steve's music is no joke. At just 23, Marion has already established himself as an exciting new voice — that just happens to be wordless — blending polyrhythmic beats and psychedelic electronics with exhilarating guitar pop.
Following up the group's 'World Café: Next' appearance in February, Delicate Steve returns to World Café to talk with host David Dye and play three songs from Wondervisions.
