Weekend Warrior, December 14 - 16

Sometimes, it's easy to be consumed by personal circumstances, to feel that your individual situations are unique. Hence, you justify insulating yourself, turning your back on the outside world, when that may be the remedy to breaking the cycle. The portal of connection that you forge with others, via empathy, is a vital component in establishing a sense of community. Thin Lips find a way to maneuver through personal trials and tribulations, exposing vulnerability and insecurities in an unflinching emotive fervor. Harnessing that raw force with a melodic, pop-punk orientation, the plots play out in heavy yet refined swells; controlled, explosive songs tear down self-imposed walls, revealing that we’re all in this together. Billowing with emotion, the quintet of State Champs rolls ahead in composed, impactful waves, setting the stage for the collective, anthemic outpouring of local legends The Starting Line this Saturday at Franklin Music Hall. – Michael Colavita

Debut Puppy Angst EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Tiny Thoughts, the new EP from the quartet of Puppy Angst, is out now via Good How Are You Records. With an uninhibited, stream-of-consciousness style of lyricism, an endearing, relatable quality is present. Working through situations while acknowledging ones imperfections, the recordings stew between subdued moments and grittier, aggressive, shoegazy noise-pop. It finds balance between the cycle of replaying thoughts and stepping out to let off steam.





New Track: "Arrow Bowie" - Ralphiie Reese

Arrow Bowie is the forthcoming album from Philly emcee Ralphiie Reese. Its title track slips through the shadowy streets as soulful backing vocals, keys and percussion setup the scenario. A faded, grimy aggression flows at cruising speed, before a battle-tested determination springs forward. The LP is slated for release on cassette via Icy Palms Records on February 15.

New Greg Mendez Album Available for Streaming & Download

Greg Mendez just released an impressive collection of demos, entitled Home Videos (2006 - 2018). The gifted Philly artist is able to put a spotlight on the power of writing simple, well-crafted songs with his latest, bare-bones release. The (mostly) home-recordings immediately captivate without the need of studio magic. Mendez humbly posted, "they are far from perfect but I like them and they deserve to be out there. It took me a long time to feel comfortable really sharing my music with ppl I didn't know so thank you for making me feel so welcome." Thank you for sharing. Do yourself a favor; get into this.
