NJ's Delicate Steve played a home-town show this past Thursday at Montclair's Meat Locker. The group was just coming off a very successful Union Pool residency, which was attended by members of TV On The Radio, Dirty Projectors, Yeasayer and Fang Island. Their crowd at the Meat Locker confirms their quickly growing popularity. While billed as support for Matador's Times New Viking everyone at the show seemed to be there for Delicate Steve. As someone whose heard their yet-to-be released album Wondervisions, I can say their songs take on a whole new life in a live setting.

Delicate Steve is a band that clearly pays attention to details and takes pride in their performances. They leave nothing out of their live show that was apart of their recordings. Unfortunately when Times New Viking took the stage the crowd had dwindled to a handful of people, but the group still played a fairly long set, satisfying the few that did stick around. The group is now set to head out on the Guided By Voices reunion tour starting next week. All of their upcoming dates can be seen at Myspace.
