New New Speedway LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Total Babe is the latest album from Philly six-piece New Speedway, arriving via Time Castle Recordings. Peering through the static of fuzz-reverberating rock, the vocals console in a tranquilizing, dream state. Basking in that pleasant trance, one sheds worry. However, amid those sunny ventures, there is an underlying propensity to zoom through the skies, flexing riff-charged afterburners.

New Track: "I’d Like to Thank The Academy" - Hafsol

“I’d Like to Thank The Academy,” the new single from Hafsol, a.k.a. Dylan Penna-Powell, develops an airy pensive setting before a percussive beat propels it into motion. Poetic lines flow at a laidback pace. The steer of the groove and the gradual fade of backing vocals washes over in a pleasant drift, intertwined with its hip-hop cadence. Lyrically, this feels layered with significance, while simultaneously retaining free association.

New Music Video: "Polyfoam" - Empath

Empath allow their freak flag to fly with some freeform dancing under misty lights in the new video for their latest single, "Polyfoam". The track is featured on the band's upcoming 7-inch, Environments, due out July 23 via Get Better Records. The release is inspired by a series of Irv Teibel field recordings from the 60s/70s. It's the follow-up to the group's breakout EP Liberating Guilt And Fear, which they are currently on tour in support of. Right now, Empath's next scheduled Philly performance is set for Wednesday, October 10 at the First Unitarian Church, where they'll be opening for Swearin'. (Photo by Hillary Jones)

Champagne Superchillin' release stylish new video, perform at Alphaville on 06.23

Opening with strings that instantly hook listeners is a bold move for a band’s lead single. But everything about Champagne Superchillin’ screams boldness, from the sensual and soothing vocals sung entirely in French to the title of their newest single which translates into “love of fate”. “Amor Fati” is a cool, cinematic song and the first single of the band’s upcoming album Beach Deep. It utilizes the sum of the band’s parts to create something that is effortless in its charisma; the bass line instantly finds a swaying groove as a psychedelic mist coats the guitars. The single is evocative and instills old-school pop styles without relying on nostalgia to create a brilliant introduction to the band. However, the track also blends darker tones to create something that is simultaneously mesmeric and uneasy. The strings cut back in twice, transforming the song into a bewitching soundtrack for nocturnal creatures. You can watch the music video for “Amor Fati” below and catch Champagne Superchillin’ performing at Alphaville on June 23. -Tucker Pennington
