New Track: "Somewhere Else" - Littler

On Littler's new single, "Somewhere Else," Madeline Meyer drags us through the muck and mire that blocks our path towards adulthood. While some gracefully make this transition, the reality that most of us face isn't that easy, and Littler manages to capture that relatable angst with their latest, which was recorded and mixed by Swearin's Kyle Gilbride. "Somewhere Else" will find its place on the band's forthcoming album Of Wandering. They'll be performing next in Philly on Sunday, September 13 at Hong Kong Garden with Bad Canoes, Moor Mother Goddess, and Pill.


Marge Opening for Tweens at The Pharmacy Aug. 25

Garage-pop quartet Marge continues the lineage of female-empowered acts seemingly sprouting up all over the place in Philly. With charming, melodic vocals and gritty instrumentation, they are steadily becoming a fixture in the DIY community. Marge will be opening this evening at The Pharmacy for rambunctious, trash-pop provocateurs from Cincy, Tweens. And sandwiched between the two acts will be local grunge rockers Littler. The Pharmacy, 1300/02 S. 18th St., 7pm, $10, All Ages - Alexis V.


Treat Y'rself Fest at PhilaMOCA August 15

Saturday sounds like an optimal time to indulge in some excellent music, food, and crafts. The daylong Treat Y’rself Fest, taking place at PhilaMOCA, offers a comprehensive experience with an additional bonus proceeds will go toward October’s March to End Rape Culture.  A dozen artists are slated to perform, including Kississippi whose intricate lyrical painting set on an acoustic canvas. Myrrias will perform as a duo, inducing a soothing psychedelic daydream. While the jangly art pop of Mercury Girls, the surf-garage-punk combo of The Pretty Greens (featuring Mike Writes), the fuzzy shoegazing haze of Ghost Gum and garage-punk quartet Littler are among those on this packed program. Get there early and treat yourself. PhilaMOCA 531 N. 12th St., 1pm, $10-$12, All Ages –Michael Colavita

Get a Glimpse Into the Inner Workings of Free Cake For Every Creature at Great Indoors Jan. 21

Free Cake For Every Creature, the solo venture which evolved into the band of upstate New York transplant Katie Bennett, performs tonight at Great Indoors. Bennett’s songwriting style offers a glimpse into her inner workings. These episodic insights expose a vulnerability, which can be appreciated for its sincere/honest qualities; after all opening up to the outside world can be a frightening proposition. These songs also inhabit a natural sweetness as Bennett’s soft vocals correspond to an air of innocence juxtaposed to intimate lyrics, which spread out over the emotional spectrum. They will be joined by the witty, garage-punk quartet Littler. The trio of Trace Mountains, featuring David Benton (LVL UP), Jim Hill and Liz Pelly, has an easy-going singer/songwriter-punk hybrid as the lyrics offer a glimpse into the darkness. Great Indoors (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 7pm, $5-$7, All Ages - Michael Colavita
