New Track: "Fur" - Needle Points

Produced by Scott McMicken (of Dr. Dog), Feel Young, the long-awaited sophomore album from Needle Points, will be released on September 23 via the band's own label NeedLove Records. Its latest single, “Fur,” hones in on a somber psych scenario as the tormented ache of Colin Holloway’s vocals meld with heart-pounding keys, spiked by a fuzzed-out, final sprint to the finish. Those looking to hear more should head to Johnny Brenda’s this Sunday, September 18 for their release show that also includes Mystic Braves and The Dream Ride.


Happy 10th Anniversary Week, Johnny Brenda’s!!!

For those who’ve been lucky enough to live through the renaissance that Philly’s music scene has been experiencing for the last decade or so, we’d like to remind you of a time when the next big thing in music was not likely going to be discovered in your favorite local DIY space. With the exception of R5 Productions, who was only consistently booking the First Unitarian Church at the time and just starting to gain a great reputation nationally in the indie music scene, many of the music venues were known more for ripping off artists than helping to nurture the music community. However, once Johnny Brenda’s renovated its second floor into a concert space, it was a total game changer - forever raising the bar in Philly. (Thank you!) We finally had a world-class music venue that actually cared about the artists’ and concertgoers’ experience. (What local musician out there didn’t appreciate the complimentary Greek plate in the backstage when he or she first performed there?) Johnny Brenda’s became a cornerstone for the arts & culture community in Fishtown and throughout Philadelphia.
This week marks the beloved establishment’s 10th Anniversary as a music venue, and they’ll be celebrating it with some kick-ass events that start this evening with the soulful, powerful ache of Hop Along frontwoman Frances Quinlan, the polished indie-pop of Hurry, and the “heavenly blues” of The Goodbye Party. You also surely don’t want to miss Tuesday night’s psych explorations with Bardo Pond, Birds of Maya, and Chris Forsyth. The rest of the week’s festivities will also include evenings with Rocky Votolato, The Album Leaf, IGNITE Philly, and much more. Cheers to all the good folks at JB’s! - Q.D. Tran

Embrace the Ethereal Capacity of Dulls at Ortlieb's Sept. 11

A muggy yet enticing psych haze draws one toward the dream-like state that is Dulls. Then, as your about to drift into the sonic waters, a tumultuous typhoon appears, smacking you into shoegazing submission. Increasing gradually, the force of the storm becomes more evident, but once you’re in its volatile center, there’s no need to retreat. Embrace the ethereal capacity of searing guitars, incoming percussions and enchanting vocals. Tonight at Ortlieb’s, they’ll be paired with the drifting, ambient, time-warping tones of The Stargazer Lillies, the tempered, magnetic, enclosing harmony of The Lulls, and the cloud-exploring expanses of Tessellations. Ortlieb’s, 847 N. Third St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita


NYC rockers Dead Heavens play St. Vitus on 9/20

Walter Schreifels is a NYC hardcore heavyweight, maybe best known for playing guitar for bands like Gorilla Biscuits and Youth of Today, so you wouldn't expect his latest project to be a fuzzy, 70's-feel rock band with a barefaced classic sound. But that's exactly what Dead Heavens is. The group, which also features members from White Zombie and Cults, lays down luscious driving instrumentals with strong vocals lines that are instantly addictive. Their stand out track is "Feel Low" (streaming below) a tune that matches heavy, fuzzy riff-age with floating melodic vocals--a pairing that's not entirely expected. Carve it up any way you'd like, but Dead Heavens is an unabashed return-to-roots band, churning out delicious licks that hit right in the gut. Check out "Feel Low" below, and if you're hungry for more, see them live at St. Vitus on 9/20 with the Space Merchants and Gondola- Olivia Sisinni
