New Greg Mendez Single Release Available for Streaming & Download

Philly singer-songwriter Greg Mendez just dropped a single release, containing a pair of new tracks. In “Purity (Walk On),” which was recorded for Adam Chimera's "One Take Box" video series, self-aware, haunting harmonies address those individuals who one associates with, but don’t have your best interests at heart. The song has a folky, lo-fi isolation that's caught in a pleasant sadness. Intermingling electronic percussion, bass, and keys to encompass a warm, minimalist groove, “Killer 57” seems like a retroactive, confessional apology, shining light on a memory in a nostalgic manner. Mendez is scheduled to appear at The Pharmacy on Friday, August 10, as part of a billing that also includes Sun Organ, No Better, and Lava Gulls. (Photo by Veronica Isley)


New Greg Mendez LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Greg Mendez just released his first full band album, & Gum Trash, backed by Evan Bernard (The Superweaks), Ian Farmer (Modern Baseball, Slaughter Beach, Dog), and Cody Wren (Decent). Contagious, concise instrumentation attaches to personally-connecting lyrics, tying the listener into the narratives. The recordings welcome you into a new, musical house, which soon feels like a friendly, familiar home. This Sunday, February 11, Boot & Saddle will be hosting Mendez’s record release show, where he'll be support by Shannen Moser, Neil O'Neil, and Queen Jesus. (Photo by SJ Penchenski)
