New Petunia EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

John Ryan, a.k.a. Petunia, shells out energetic, heartfelt songs on his new EP Funny Talk. Focusing in on personal anecdotes with universal implications, the songs ache and arch in a smooth yet sincere manner. Whether touching on fragments of memories or analyzing the present circumstance, the tracks move in unified melody with an alt-country surrounding that spikes when called upon. Imploring a rather immediate familiarity, it echoes points within one’s past without becoming predictable. Petunia is slated to perform on Tuesday, March 7 at Boot & Saddle that will also includes Tim Darcy (of Ought) and Molly Burch. (Photo by Amanda Wagner)





New Track: "Honey" - Aphra

Journey with Aphra into the ether with her new track "Honey," which Rebecca Waychunas premiered yesterday in her interview for Stereogum's Artist To Watch. It's the latest single from her forthcoming EP Sadness Is A Gesture, due out digitally on February 28 and on vinyl in April via Inherent Sounds. Waychuna shared, "Tragedy and trauma are a huge part of my past. People need to know that about me before they get close to me." The album is "definitely about mourning" as she uses it partly to work through past difficult relationships. "In order to process trauma in your past, you have to see it, you have to look at it, you have to talk about it. Whether it's with a therapist or through art or with just a friend." You can share in her healing process when Aphra performs at her record release show on Wednesday, March 8 at The Barbary with Brooklyn's The Undercover Dream Lovers.





The Deli Philly's Yearly Readers'/Fans' Indie Pop Poll Winner: Deer Scout

The Deli Philly's Yearly Readers'/Fans' Poll for the Indie Pop category just concluded last night. Thanks to all who casted their vote in support of their favorite emerging artists.

Congrats to singer-songwriter Deer Scout, a.k.a. Dena Miller! Emerging on the Philly music scene last spring with her EP Customs, Miller's endearing, child-like vocals stand in the forefront as the delicate plucks and strums of her acoustic guitar provide a comfortable backdrop. Sorting through life's struggles, these relatable reflections give meaningful insight into the mind and heart of the artist, building a bridge between her and each listener. And we can all use more bridges than walls these days.





Get Over the V-Day Slump with Some Folk at Alberta St. Pub

Already making plans for your post Valentine's Day romantic void recovery? If you're boycotting going out tomorrow to save having romance shoved in your face, consider heading up to Alberta St. Pub on Wednesday where a little bit of folk could sooth your lovelorn soul.

Singer/songwriter Chris Miller pops back up into hearts intermittently as Green Hills Alone, sharing what has been so delightfully described as "California coffee shop acoustic." Moody and not too twangy, Green Hills Alone will bring more of grey folk feel to the night.

In that same vein, Kelly Blair Bauman's last release, 2009's Gomorrah, was cathartic folk if we've ever heard it. More personal than his time spent with Cali bands Deathstar and the North Magnetic, Bauman's solo work intimately shows him coming into his own on his own - a feeling those who are recently single may be discovering about themselves as well.

Ending a brighter, powerpop side of folk, Maurice and the Stiff Sisters will shed a little bit of upbeat light to the night. Despite certain song titles like "Unlucky In Love," the undeniable groovy beat and cheerful use of horns take away any sadness. 





Video Premiere: Jared Rabin

We are honored to premiere the new video from singer/songwriter Jared Rabin. The video is one of the latest video’s from Sofar Chicago and feature Jared performing the title track from his latest album, “Something Left to Say”.

You can catch Jared at Martyrs’ this Friday, Feb. 10th.
