Fhloston Paradigm LIVE at JB’s Dec. 15

Legendary Philly producer/DJ King Britt has remained a staple in the local electronic music scene, though you may not have been so aware because of his choices of hiding behind monikers such as Sylk 130 and Saturn Never Sleeps. For his latest “Afro futurist,” sci-fi sonic adventure, he once again stands behind the name Fhloston Paradigm, which he has already released a few albums via London-based record label Hyperdub, RCRD LBL, and Fact Magazine. Tonight, King Britt brings his mainly studio project to Johnny Brenda’s stage for a rae live performance where he’ll be joined by Pia Ercole, who is a classically trained vocal performer from The Julliard School. Their celestial sounds will be filling the upstairs of the beloved Fishtown watering hole. Come on out, and get lost in the vibes! Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $13, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman


New The Mellowells LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

After releasing an EP and a couple of very enjoyable singles, indie-rock quartet The Mellowells just dropped their first full-length album entitled Shindy. As the title hints, the LP is filled with uproarious tunes that celebrate the band's knack for writing uber-catchy sing-alongs. They'll be performing next in Philly on Friday, January 2, 2015 in The Balcony of The Troc for the Fireback Record showcase.


Title Fight Opening for Circa Survive at Union Transfer Dec. 14

Tonight, Title Fight caps off a weekend of sold out shows opening for Circa Survive at Union Transfer. Their third full-length LP and first via ANTI-, Hyperview, was produced once again by Will Yip, and is scheduled for release on February 3, 2015. Title Fight is consciously willing to expose themselves, revealing inner-turmoil that endears themselves to listeners in the process. While often exhibiting vocals torn directly from the chest, instrumentally their songs maintain a largely melodic yet volatile core. That balance of control slowly burns until its volatile edge pulls at ones emotions while cautiously preparing for the knockout blow. On this night, Title Fight will set the stage for progressive hardcore outfit Circa Survive, whose new record Descensus (also produced by Will Yip) combines intense heart-pounding polished instrumentation with Anthony Green’s smooth soaring vocals. Baltimore’s Pianos Become the Teeth, whose latest record Keep You was coincidentally produced by Yip as well, kicks off the show. Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St., 8pm, $25 (Sold Out), All Ages - Michael Colavita


Circadian Rhythms Taking a Few Swings at Everybody Hits Dec. 13

Circadian Rhythms reemerged as a seven-piece ensemble over the summer, and started to preview songs from their upcoming EP A Passing Thought, continuing to establish themselves as a unique, vibrant indie act with jazzy elements. The band will be co-headlining this evening’s show at DIY music space/batting cages Everybody Hits with Atlanta's Red Sea. They'll also be joined by Laser Background, a.k.a. Andy Molholt, who will be performing a solo set tonight of previously unheard jams. And the lineup will be rounded out by indie rockers Purples. Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 8pm, $5, All Ages - Bill McThrill
