Weekend Warrior - July 5 - 7

Sixteen Jackies’ Joey Demarco and Marley McNamara will be celebrating their birthdays this evening at Johnny Brenda’s. Demarco and his bandmates are co-headlining the festivities with rising singer-songwriter Ali Awan. Moody, indie popsters The Homophones have come out of the woodwork for support, led by the smooth, baritone wit of Jason Ferraro. Langor, the solo project of Brian Langor (Needle Points, SW!MS, Sweatheart), will also be on hand to help kick-start the party. Beat the heat with plenty of cold beers, cool tunes, and a stacked lineup of local Philly talent! – Alexis V.

New Yung Sham LP Available for Streaming & Download

World of Color is the latest release from Eli Sheppard, a.k.a. Yung Sham. The album occupies a loose, exuberant tone, while simultaneously showcasing delicate, intimate narratives. The songs gently roll, tapping into a sense of infectious familiarity as the lyrics transport you into the scenes that they depict, instilling a sense of paging through diary entries. Subtle musical layers provide compelling shifts that when paired with plot twists, captivate the listener.

   

New Taiwan Housing Project LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Sub - Language Trustees, the new full-length Taiwan Housing Project album, recently arrived via NYC's ever/never records. The band stirs one’s expectations, commanding as fierce vocals spotlight the distorted, jarring, sonic debris. Explosive, experimental instrumentation rips through the terrain as a perpetual buzz lingers in the atmosphere. Scattered noise remains within earshot, yet an intense rhythmic focus pushes the soundscapes forward with a distinct purpose. (Photo by Rich Wexler)

   

New Track: "Sadie" - Cole Berggren

Cole Berggren (Number One Lovers, The Vernes) recently posted a new single, called “Sadie”. Initially accompanied by guitar, the song begins with an isolated characterization, and then leaps into action as the backend kicks into gear. Searching for hope, when currently facing melancholy circumstances, Berggren suggests patience and perseverance are the strategies needed to push through. "You want it all, and all you gotta do is wait."
