Delicate Steve
Delicate Steve
Delicate Steve is the brainchild of New Jersey-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Steve Marion. As NPR has said, "Delicate Steve's music maintains the capacity to surprise…guitar showcases that don't shred, dance records that don't adhere to familiar beats and classic-rock throwbacks that fan out into world music, prog, reggae, surf-rock and more, with the propulsive jitteriness and sideways oddness of Ratatat or Dirty Projectors."SPIN has called the music "a kaleidoscope of bouncy pan-African polyrhythms and swooping six-string melodies, like the Dirty Projectors with guitars instead of singers.

"Sun-kissed, acid-drenched, at times dissonant and at times blissfully melodic, Wondervisions brings to mind an even more out there Animal Collective or an instrumental incarnation of MGMT's Congratulations recorded with the same old gear as Slanted And Enchanted." — Au Magazine (UK)

Flush with six-string personality, Wondervisions shifts smoothly from Pavement's psychedelic cowlicks ("Welcome-Begin") to Dirty Projectors' zigzagging Afro-riffs ("Butterfly") to the synth and acoustic slide guitar of heartbreaking march "Don't Get Stuck (Proud Elephants)." — Spin Magazine

A true child of his labelmeister, David Byrne, "Delicate" Steve Marion translates the felicities of West African guitar pop into an inventive instrumental hodgepodge. Nothing overly heavy or insipid to ponder here, unless you've got a problem with unalloyed joy. — Village Voice
