iTunes Review

Sometimes “embracing a DIY ethic” simply means realizing that you’ve hoarded enough musical gear to record an album at home. That’s what happened to New Jersey songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Steve Marion. His 2012 sophomore outing sticks to his “ethos” while expanding his craft. “Ramona Reborn” opens sounding like an entire group rather than a one-man band. From the twangy slide guitar to the rhythmic acoustic strumming and pedaling rhythm section, there's an ebb and flow of interactive chemistry, with ample breathing room for a salient melody to pop out from the mix. “Wally Wilder” pushes the margins of post-rock with squealing analog tones rubbing against the grain of Afrocentric percussion, sounding like the mischievous little brother of Dirty Projectors. “Two Lovers” simmers down with bluesy electric guitar riffs and peripheral Moog chirps that percolate under cooing female vocals. The soft pitter-patter rhythms on “Positive Force” help give the song a lazy-summer feel when combined with sleepy slide guitar. “Luna” closes, sounding like an analog lullaby written for the children of Stereolab’s members.

Another inspired release from a shockingly underrated group

The guys in Delicate Steve are experts at manipulating sounds to create magnificient auras that are channeled through excellently crafted melodies. At times upbeat, other times contemplative, always feel-good; this album was a definite "buy" for me and I highly recommend at least a listen to all.


This album is amazing! A lot more vocal than their previous album, yet still very little vocals. It is an album that needs to be played in its entirety in order to fully appreciate it. If you get the chance to see them live, don't hesitate.

Happy music!

Big fan of Delicate Steve. His second album differs from Wondervisions as it is more melodic, smoother and probably more accessible to listeners. Wondervision is one of my favorite albums because I had to listen to it probably four times through to really get where it was going and love it. Great album nonetheless and buying it here was mandatory after loving their first album. Delicate steve has definately found a way to channel the sound of being happy/content!

Delicate Steve is the brainchild of New Jersey-based guitarist/songwriter Steve Marion. Having previously recorded friends' bands, Marion realized one day that he had enough gear lying around his home studio to record an album of his own and decided to just go for it. What he developed is a sound that feels like a hybrid of Animal Collective's dense experimentations and the African-influenced pop of bands like Dirty Projectors and Vampire Weekend, playing with layers of percussion and keyboards while...
