Debut Horsecops EP Available for Streaming & Download

Dog (Bald Spot Records), the freshly released EP from Horsecops, goes straight to your skull. Amid the heady stoner fuzz, transferable backend, loaded with energy, carves out an accessible door. Low-simmering wafts of semi-chaotic haze are contrasted via brief, impactful, instrumental blows. However, the final track, “B-Side,” offers a long-form slow-cooker.

PAC NW Keeping the Festival Season Going

 As if the last couple weeks haven't been enough of a clusterfuck in the way of music festivals, tomorrow brings yet another to add to the list of attendance. This time around, it's a collaboration between three bar venues downtown and Lagunitas Brewing.

PAC NW Fest features 15 bands spread out across Dante's, Ash Street Saloon and Kelly's Olympian, all in one Saturday night. 

Catch what is sure to be a rowdy final performance from Foxy Lemon's drummer Zach Boggis as they headline the bill at Kelly's Olympian. Supporting them will be Bubble Cats, the Hoons, Keeper Keeper and Internal State. That side room at Kelly's is sure to reach capacity.

Over at Dante's, you'll find Seattle's Moon Darling, Willow House, Arlo Indigo and Just Lions opening up for King Who, the new moniker for the trippy synth pop group Us Lights.

Dark pop rock lovers Skull Diver will be closing out the night at Ash Street Saloon with their psychedelic visuals and ethereal vocals. Febian Perez's post-Bike Thief project Eclisse will also take the stage, along with Rader, Young Hunter and Salo Panto.

All shows start at 7 p.m. Wristbands for all three venues are available for $12 adv, $15 door with single show tickets being $8. Wristbands can be picked up tomorrow at Ash Street Saloon only. Purchase wristbands here. Enjoy!

Free Strange Parts & Valley Exit (Full Band) Show at JB's Sept. 2

Catch the first free show ever at Johnny Brenda’s! Here’s a rundown of what you can expect to see upstairs. Producer extraordinaire Jeff Zeigler slips further into the space-age experimental pool of Valley Exit. With a somewhat fluid cast of characters that includes April Harkanson (Downtown Club, Myrrias), Steve Urgo (Myrrias), Josh Meakim (A Sunny Day In Glasgow, The Fantastic Imagination), the band swiftly shifts among a wide expanse of electronic exploration in an accessible yet discovery-oriented mode. This evening’s show will feature the dynamic pairing of Attia Taylor & Corey Duncan (Oh! Pears), who has recently returned after a stint as a resident on the West Coast), a.k.a. Strange Parts. Their fresh single,  “Asleep in the Flowers,” effortlessly combines Taylor’s enchanting vocals with a heavy dose of percussion and synth, developing a deep hypnotic groove that you’ll be in no rush to pull yourself out of, offering a glimpse into their multi- dimensional tones. Emily Robb (Lantern, Louie Louie, Myrrias) rounds out this free night of music with her collection of vinyl for your listening pleasure. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9:15pm, Free, 21+ (Strange Parts Photo by Adam Haney) - Michael Colavita

New Track: "same fucking line" - NAH

NAH, a.k.a. Michael Kuhn, has been working on a full-length album, Michael, for the past year. As he gets closer to the finish line, we are treated to a dope-ass new track in "same fucking line". His rhythmic diction gets your blood racing before slyly laying down a hot groove and sucking you into his vortex of sound. Come be invigorated by the one-man band when NAH opens for Mykki Blanco on Thursday, Sept. 15 at PhilaMOCA! (Photo by Emily Burtner)

PREMIERE: bdRm - "She Comes in Waves II"

 No Movement Records is ironically making tons of moves, especially by way of label founder Jeremy Wilkins. Not only is he a very active member in two of the label's bands We Are Parasols and Hawks Do Not Share, but he's since taken elements of both projects to create yet another, called bdRm.

The first bdRm release, Are You Friendly?, explored dark and moody 'jazztronica' with existential themes flooding throughout the album's lyrical content. This time around, we're bringing to your ears a new bdRm track from the recently dropped Identité.

Identité is a conceptual darkwave album based on personal identity. It's considerably broken down into four parts - the first focusing on birth, awareness and early onset damage, the second and third focusing on realization and healing, and the fourth focusing on peace and acceptance. Today's track, "She Comes in Waves II," falls into part one.

It's heavily brooding with a video to match, like a trip through consciousness. Check out "She Comes in Waves II" below and head over to bdRm's Soundcloud to hear all of Identité.
