Buzz Alert! Teddy Sinclair is back with Cruel Youth - new EP out on 09.16

Cruel Youth is perhaps the Marvelettes stuck in a black treacle, electro-acid dream. It is the smokey allure of 60's R&B wrapped up in dark, hypnotic beats and dripping with the power of a femme fatale. After premiering track "Mr. Watson" a few months back, the all-female trio fronted by Teddy Sinclair (FKA Natalia Kills), is set to drop an EP this month. If the first single is any indication, the EP is sure to be lead by Sinclair's soulful vocals and biting lyricism, deliciously paired with hazy instrumentals and sampling that makes the group's pop-soul tracks sound driving and even "avant" at times. Keep a lookout for Cruel Youth's EP dropping Sept 16th, and in the meantime listen to their single below.-Olivia Sisinni

New Track: "same fucking line" - NAH

NAH, a.k.a. Michael Kuhn, has been working on a full-length album, Michael, for the past year. As he gets closer to the finish line, we are treated to a dope-ass new track in "same fucking line". His rhythmic diction gets your blood racing before slyly laying down a hot groove and sucking you into his vortex of sound. Come be invigorated by the one-man band when NAH opens for Mykki Blanco on Thursday, Sept. 15 at PhilaMOCA! (Photo by Emily Burtner)





Project Pabst and MFNW's Fusion Sells Out Tickets

Last year, news broke that MusicfestNW was somewhat merging, somewhat absorbing one of the newest fest's to hit the PNW, Project Pabst. With skepticism concert goers awaited for the new superfest to announce its lineup and now that the fest is here, they're proving a fruitful merger by selling out their weekend pass tickets and individual tickets for Sunday. 

Headlining Project Pabst will be Ice Cube and Duran Duran on Saturday and Ween and Tame Impala on Sunday, so of course it makes sense why Sunday's bill is sold out. Since the reuniting of Ween last year, their sporadic playing of shows has fans devouring tickets like crazy. 

Festivities for PP technically started last night with a comedy show at Dante's featuring Toddy Barry, Bryan Cook and Joann Schinderle, and with hip hop mainstays Digable Planets and Camp Lo at the Crystal Ballroom.

Local, more underground artists seem to be dominating the Project Pabst night shows (with the exception of Kyle Craft, who is blowing up and will be opening up the weekend fest tomorrow at 1 p.m.!), with Y La Bamba, Orquestra Pacifico Tropical, Haley Heynderickx, Candace and Talkative all playing tonight. Zirakzigil, Muscle and Marrow, And And And, Souvenir Driver, Rilla, Grand Lake Islands, and Summer Cannibals all play tomorrow night, with Last Artful, Dodgr and My Body opening up for Shy Girls Sunday.

Make note of the fact that Project Pabst's weekend day shows are no longer at their usual Zidell Yards, but are now held at MusicfestNW's location of the Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Tickets to the weekend shows (minus individual ones for Saturday) are sold out, but ticket purchase for PP night shows are still available.

To find the Project Pabst schedule, purchase Saturday tickets and to find out just where and when the Project Pabst night shows are, visit the festival's website.





MH the Verb Opening for Gangstagrass at MilkBoy April 21

Whether he's suavely spitting over a soulful, candle-burning beat or escalating into his own fire, MH the Verb always appears under control. The ability to cruise when the traffic turns up around him and seemingly slowdown the system, skillfully hitting high performance while cascading over an array of worldly sound, displaying versatility. It may be Sunday, but he’ll extend that weekend vibe for all it’s worth. Tonight, MH the Verb will set the table for the unlikely yet ear-grabbing combination of hip-hop and bluegrass known as Gangstagrass. Milkboy, 1100 Chestnut St., 7pm, $12, 21+ - Michael Colavita
