Status Quo w/OhBree at The Fire Sept. 24

Tormenting yet playful like some delightfully twisted subconscious dream concoction, where slightly off-kilter becomes the status quo, OhBree will be performing tonight at The Fire. With songs that tap into a theatrical/dramatic with quirky, catchy lyrics and instrumentation that varies from bright, cheery keys and horn combinations to more heavily clouded, grey mood makers, you can't help hearing the influence of local favorites Man Man. Like their forefathers, OhBree warps listeners into their musical world, and it’s a compelling place. Joining OhBree on the bill will be Mike Bell's previous incarnation Mike Bell & The World’s Most Unremarkable Band, as well as local pop-punk outfit The Goodbye Party (featuring Michael Cantor of The Ambulars) with New York’s Gladshot completing the bill. The Fire, 412 W. Girard Ave., 8:30 pm, $7, 21+ - Michael Colavita


New Track: "Suns And Lovers" (Feat. Anna Troxell) - Nothing

The track will appear as an addition to Downward Years To Come V2.0 that will be reissued on 12" vinyl (black, white & black/white split) via A389, which is now available for pre-order.

Free Download: Hopscotch Fest 9/5/14 - Spacin' + Purling Hiss

NYC Taper recently shared a rare treat that happened at this year's Hopscotch Fest. Philly favorite sons Spacin' and Purling Hiss joined their mighty forces on September 5, 2014 at Tir na Nog in Raleigh, North Carolina for an epic set that consisted of extended versions of 2 Spacin' songs ("Sunshine No Shoes" & "Titchy"), 3 Purling Hiss songs ("Learning Slowly," "Run From the City," & "Almost Washed My Hair" with Mary Lattimore on harp and Steve Gunn on guitar), and a cover of MC5's "American Ruse." You can stream and download the entire performance for free HERE. (Photo by acidjack)


New Music Video: "Double Dutch" - A Sunny Day in Glasgow & Announce NYE Holiday Run

A Sunny Day in Glasgow's Jen Goma wanted to release the group's track, "Double Dutch," off their latest LP Sea When Absent (Lefse Records), as a single, but the rest of the gang weren't into having a one-minute single. So what did she do? She teamed up with Luisa Conlon (who was her partner in crime for a documentary series entitled The Working Life), and made a music video for one of her favorite songs on the album. You can check it out below, and the band also announced a holiday run of shows that will conclude with a hometown New Year's Eve performance at Boot & Saddle.

Grimace Federation Opening for Why? at Union Transfer Sept. 22

Local post-rock veterans Grimace Federation have certainly gone through many configurations over the years. Long gone are the days of their arrival at live performances as a sextet, lugging around a massive vibraphone, but with their current, more minimalist setup as a trio, the band continues to move forward, experimenting and evolving the group’s sound. This past July, Grimace Federation shared a sample of this progression in “The Measure In Mixture,” from their upcoming LP, and you’ll be able to hear more from it this evening at Union Transfer when they open for the Yoni Wolf-led indie rock outfit Why? and Minneapolis, Minnesota’s Dessa. Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden, $16, All Ages - Alexis V.


New Music Video: "Everyone" (Sigel City Feat. The Daddyo's Remix) - Mike Bell & The Movies

Mike Bell & The Movies recently released a full-length maxi-single CD for the track "Everyone," which originally appeared on their record Nothing Works. The new album comes with four remixes by various artists and a live recording of the single as well as live versions of previously recorded and unrecorded songs that were taken from their performance on June 14, 2014 at Self Aware Fest. A standout on their latest LP features a sugary sweet, synth-heavy collaboration between Tulsa, Oklahoma's Sastronaut and The Daddyo's that also came with a music video, which you can view below. The Everyone (Maxi-Single) release is available via Major Bear Records, and can be purchased and streamed HERE. Enjoy!
