2019 proved to be a busy year for Delicate Steve's creator, guitarist Steve Marion. Shortly after releasing the full-length album Till I Burn Up, Marion was tapped to join arena rockers The Black Keys for their worldwide ‘Let's Rock’ tour, performing on any given night for 10,000 fans.

In between legs of the Keys tour, Marion played a Delicate Steve show in a small club in New York's East Village. "It was one of the most visceral and electrifying experiences I've had: in between playing large sports arenas, to get the opportunity to perform for a hungry audience inside of a sold-out club with a line out the door, with people basically falling onto the stage,” Marion explained. “To be able to see everyone's face and feel the body heat in the room and to watch the crowd get rowdy, scream for more, and be moved in the mellower moments. It felt soulful and real. This is where I got the idea for Three Live Ones and Delicate Steve’s Tiny Arena Tour.”

Recorded live during one sweat-filled summer night at Brooklyn's Alphaville, the three-song EP features signature guitar work from Marion paired with the intricate drum stylings of Rosie Slater.

Los Angeles based producer Al Lover has spent the last several years evolving a unique approach to psychedelic and experimental electronic music. Creating a broken abstraction of what some might see as trip hop, Al uses a mix of samples, drum machines, live instrumentation, analog synthesizers and effect processing to draw out elements from the past and connect them to the future. From the 2011 garage psych tinged project, Distorted Reverberations - where he remixed bands such as Thee Oh Sees and Night Beats - to his up coming exploration of synthesized kraut, dark ambient and trap, Existential Everything, Al continues to explore the fringes of psychedelic music and the common threads within it’s various genres, drawing parallels where others might get lost.

Since 2013, Al Lover has been busy releasing a slew of projects on multiple labels (The Reverberation Appreciation Society, Fuzz Club Records, Hoga Nord Rekords, PNKSLM Records and more), as well as collaborating with artists such as Goat, Anton Newcombe, White Fence and Cairo Liberation Front, all while touring extensively, producing the Elevated Transmissions Podcast and working with Levitation and Desert Daze festivals as their official DJ.
