Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas return with their sophomore album “Telephone // Telefono,” their first full-length bilingual recording to be released in both English and Spanish language versions.

A second generation Cuban and Mexican-American, Jessica felt it her duty to further explore her own Hispanic heritage on the band's sophomore recording. She knew songs written and recorded in English required more than simply translation – a full rethink was needed to truly give them equivalent poetry and power in her second language. She pushed herself to use Spanish in ways she had never previously attempted, rewriting the songs with the invaluable aid of her mates in Mexico City to better suit the new lyrics and vocal style. Jessica even spent two full weeks speaking exclusively in Spanish, singing for hours in a friend’s studio to create a kind of muscle memory.

Intensely personal and undeniably provocative, “Telephone // Telefono” is a milestone achievement for the band who are upping the ante on their one-of-a-kind soundclash of Goth pop, Latin rock, psychedelic surf, punk cabaret, dirty dancehall, and bold balladry, a voracious approach made uniquely their own through Jessica's astonishing vocal power and The Deltas’ own boundless versatility. The new songs see The Deltas’ brand of Motor City magic taken to the max while their Spanish counterparts unveil fresh meanings and emotive power. The result is a genuinely unprecedented work of remarkable duality and impossible-to-ignore relevance.

The Tambo Rays are a spirited collaboration between siblings Brian and Sara DaMert. Featuring Sara on vocals and Brian on guitar, they’ve set art rock ablaze with their bittersweet pop flavor. Backed by Greg Sellin on bass and Bob Jakubs on drums, The Tambo Rays playful showmanship has propelled them on stage with tUnE-yArDs, The Go Team, SOKO the Cat, White Fence, Dead Meadow, PAPA, and Gothic Tropic.

The DaMerts and Sellin are no strangers to playing major venues with national headliners. Opportunity arose for Brian, Sara and Greg to tour in WATERS, formed by Van Pierszalowski (former frontman of Port O’Brien). In 2014 and 2015 they performed across the country supporting major acts: Weezer, Tegan and Sara, Misterwives, Matt and Kim, Magic Man, and Cold War Kids, and appearing on national TV shows Conan O’Brien and Carson Daly.
