The Lemon Twigs unveil video for "These Words" + tour with Sunflower Bean

This Long Island teen brother duo is set for an exciting year, having recently signed with legendary British label 4AD. First single—“These Words” b/w “As Long As We're Together”—is not merely post-modern mischief. It’s full of seventies cliché, the kind which elegizes funky guitars, prog synths, smooth choruses, and metallic band logos (e.g. Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden). In this case, a hypervigilant sensitivity to the past doesn’t detract, but feels freshly imbued with the spirit of youth. Check out the brand new video for the single, streaming below, and don't miss their upcoming show with Sunflower Bean at Music Hall of W'Burg on October 7 (part of a three week east coast tour). - Brian Chidester





Saturday Night Sounds: Astro Tan - "HYFY"

Fusing jazz, psych and r&b are what Astro Tan are masters at doing and their new single, "HYFY," further proves it.

"HYFY" premiered on Impose this last Thursday and what the track stands for (presumably "hell yeah, fuck yeah") is exactly the excitment it brings. Jazzy tendencies playfully circle around distorted guitars and an intriguing drum beat, while party-like lyrics bring a lighthearted air to the track. 

The trio just took off for a West Coast tour and return September 4 for a show at Rontoms, but let "HYFY" be your hell yeah, fuck yeah anthem as this Saturday night cools down. 





Our band picks from the Long Island Indie Rock & Pop Festival

With over 40 bands set to play before the Long Island Indie Rock & Pop Festival is through, you might be more than a little inundated with all the bands there are to see. Well, have no fear because we've picked a couple of our favorite groups that we think you should be listening to right now.  

Astronauto seamlessly blends strong soul-bearing folk sensibilities with space-y synths that sound plucked from Jupiter.  The result is dynamic songs that swell and breathe but feel sincerely introspective--edging toward the stratosphere but never truly leaving earth. Listen to their set 8/21 at 89 North.

A New Bug delivers high-energy garage punk with old school vibes. Lackadaisical vocals ooze reserved, New-York cool, but are dotted by flashes of unbridled wildness. The band's vox are pitted against fuzzy, driving instrumentals that make it near irrestiable to shake something. Mark A New Bug down as your perfect companion for the next time you're up to no good, and see them play on 8/20 at O'Brien's. 

It Came From Space is maybe the gateway drug for listeners yet to add math rock tunes to their heavy rotation. The band lays down highly acessible instrumental tracks that unfold in scope right before your ears, and sneak narrative dreamscapes behind your optic nerves. The tracks are consistently sweet sounding, and the band holds solid grooves that never get stuck anywhere for too long. Check out their set 8/22 at Portside.-Olivia Sisinni

Treat Y’r Self Fest returns to PhilaMOCA this Saturday for its second year. The benefit for the annual March to End Rape Culture (co-presented with Pussy Division) will be hosting a day of rad activities to create a safe, inclusive space that is accessible for all ages. Throughout the day and into the evening, you’ll find local favorites like Dreambook, Swanning, and Motherwhore coming together with artist from all over the country to donate their talents to help unify a community for an important cause.

Kevin Attics (Mercury Girls, Literature) will also be spinning between sets, and Samantha Gurry will be creating some dope hand-cut animated visuals. So come out & TREAT Y’R SELF!

New Track: "Emotional High" - Mannequin Pussy

Mannequin Pussy premiered a new track called "Emotional High," over at Noisey yesterday. It's off the band's forthcoming album, Romantic, due out October 28 via Tiny Engines. Frontwoman Marissa Dabice shared some insight about their latest single:

“It’s so genuinely full of warmth because I am appreciative of the people in my life, and I can’t believe they’re there. Sometimes you don’t know how to tell people in your life that you love them, and music is a chance to do that. It’s in such an emotionally dense record it’s this standalone song that’s the most telling of the things you need when you’re in the middle of a bunch of darkness. ‘Emotional High’ is that gratitude for my people song.”
