New Slingshot Dakota Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Heavy Banding, the new album from Slingshot Dakota, recently arrived via Community Records, Specialist Subject Records & Stiff Slack. Keys and drums unite to create a constant, thumping heaviness. When coupled with Carly Comando's affecting vocals, the message is unquestioningly delivered. The duo continues to be an undeniable, sonic force coming out of the Lehigh Valley.





New Instupendo EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Boys by Girls is the new EP from Phily's own Instupendo, a.k.a. Aidan Peterson. Absorb the ethereal, electro, dream-pop ambiance. Those minimalistic beats, balanced by lyrical emotives, creates a weightless yet alluring collection of recordings. Instupendo will be performing next in Philly on Saturday, July 6 at Kung Fu Necktie, along with NYC's Glassio and Brisbane, Australia's Golden Vessel.





Blossom LP Release

Last week, Blossom released her newest LP, Maybe. It’s a beautiful reflection on what the mind can do when left alone. Blossom makes fever dreams feel spine-tingling and sultry. She has great command over her voice, delivering each word succinctly and powerfully. As the months get hotter, we’re all going to get more and more grateful that she’s released this album in time for summer. “Betty Rizzo” is an especially alluring song, which makes sense given its namesake. It’s one that will probably bring more than a few bodies to the dance floor.

Blossom will be having an album release party for Maybe next Monday, June 10th at the Armory. She will be joined by Butter Baby, DJ Dubblife, Fountaine, KayelaJ and Bocha.

Jeanines prepare new album, play Trans-Pecos on 6/12

Hearkening back to the UK twee pop sound of the mid-80's, Brooklyn's Jeanines are set to release their self-titled debut album on June 14th. Partnering with Slumberland Records makes perfect sense as that label has specialized in next generation bands emulating the C86/early Creation sound since it's inception in 1989. The wistful lyrics, vocals and guitar of Alicia Jeanine and My Teenage Stride Jed Smith's bass and drums perfectly combine to create new songs within this timeless sound. “Either Way” (streaming below) captures the melancholy charm of original era bands like Talulah Gosh, who were as influential as any of the Sarah Records pioneers. It's jangly, indie-pop that couples doubt with a sense of hope (“you have got to stay.”) Just released new single “Too Late” (streaming here) takes that a step further, with a more frantic velocity echoing its lyrical sentiment of regret. The album is now available for preorder, while the band play next on 6/12 at Trans-Pecos, and 6/22 at Alphaville for their release show. -Dave Cromwell





New Curtis Cooper LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Graceful, the new full-length album from Curtis Cooper, exhibits an honest, emotive vulnerability - one that reveals a vast, genre-traversing elegance. While touching on turbulent times, Cooper also exudes perseverance and positivity. The album holds one’s attention with compelling narratives and a charming, calm/intense dynamic. Along with Lucky Cat, they are scheduled to support Mal Blum on Sunday, July 21 at PhilaMOCA.
