New MINKA Album Available for Streaming & Download

A graceful, classical-meets-electronica convergence flows as one listens to the new MINKA album, Reincarnation. The complexity of the compositions is tastefully complemented by beat-driven movements. An elegant, serenity glides along as the vocals guide us through the seamless mergers of these recordings. It's a more subdued MINKA than you might be used to, but in a very good way. Enjoy!

   

New Psalmships EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

It’s been a moment since we’ve heard from Joshua Britton and his project Psalmships. Well, he's back with a new EP, titled Keep Your Words. Haunting, folk-blues turbulence permeates. A hearty heaviness quakes as one feels the emotive impact of the music.

   

New The Tisburys EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Led by Tyler Asay, The Tisburys have a new EP, which they've titled Wax Nostalgic. Exuberant folk/Americana streams in loose, catchy bursts that hit a personal chord. Meshing a sense of the optimism that one often holds in memories and ideal hypotheticals, there’s a bright, bouncy tone that lifts one up but is countered by a sadness felt in real time. The Tisburys will be performing this evening upstairs at World Cafe Live, where they'll be joined by The 40th Parallel and Solars.

   

New Music Video: "Not Your Token" - Ramona

Deals, Deals, Deals!, the forthcoming album from Ramona, is scheduled to arrive on June 7 via Red Scare Industries. Directed by Ted Quann, the trio recently shared a new video for its lead single, “Not Your Token”. Agitation over a spilled beverage quickly transforms into a playful, competitive, pinball face off. And those matching/team jogging suits are stellar! Ramona will be performing next in Philly on Friday, June 21 at Kung Fu Necktie, opening for Teenage Bottlerocket, who they are currently accompanying on tour.

   

The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Eliza Bird

After listening to Eliza Bird, it isn’t very surprising to learn that the band’s name was inspired by grave stones in an old cemetery. There’s an inherent sadness in the vocals that seems to weigh heavily on the poetically obtuse lyrics, encouraging you to take a deep dive in search of the meaning behind each tale. The band, which consists of Devyn Luzniak, Jake Soojian, Peter Dampman, and Carson Hyde, “want to feel weird with you.” So check out their tunes below and our latest Featured Artist(s) interview HERE.
