A.M. Mills Grapples With Heartache at Ortlieb's Nov. 30

After originally learning about a full-length album being in the works with the help of Terry Yerves and Quentin Stoltzfus (Light Heat, ex-Mazarin) about a year ago, A.M. Mills, led by Drew Mills of Blood Feathers, has finally shared not an LP, as expected, but a six-song EP, simply titled First Recordings. Its introspective narrative finds Mills wandering over Dylan-esque musical terrain as he grapples with heartache and the ghost of a lost love. It's a cathartic release, and A.M. Mills will be sorting through this collection of songs/feelings and more this evening at Ortlieb's. They'll also be be joined by August Wells, the collaborative project from Ken Griffin (Rollerskate Skinny, Kid Silver, Favourite Sons) and John Rauchenberger, and local Philebrity singer-songwriter Joey Sweeney. Ortlieb's, 847 N. 3rd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman

New Dr. Dog LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Dr. Dog just surprised us with a new, mostly acoustic full-length album, Abandoned Mansion. It was actually recorded before their last LP, The Psychedelic Swamp, which was funded by a grant from Pig Iron Theater Company that was about to expire so its release took precedent at the time. And if you purchase a download of Abandoned Mansion from now to the end of January, all the proceeds will be donated to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Debut Gladys the Gardener LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The West Philly quartet of Gladys the Gardener, consisting of Nic Sanderson, Bailey Dolan, Andrew Williams and Zooey Cox, inscribes a fuzzy, melodic haze with their debut LP, Pencils Down. A scattering perimeter is met by the consistent drive ahead. However, in moments, that path veers in a pleasant, unexpected smashing, with a punk persuasion or spacing out on a psych-frequency.

New Track: "Block Steady" - Essonite

The electro-experimenting duo of Essonite recently shared a new single, “Block Steady”. Overlapping genre boundaries, the song rolls out with a polished funky, trip-hop vibe. Coasting on an intricate layering of sonic samples and textures, the track balances the ease of multifaceted movement with a warped appeal of immediate intensity. (Photo by Team Lil)
