Weekend Warrior, January 6 - 8

The Orange Drop commemorate their latest album Stoned In Love, available via Mega Dodo, with a release show this evening at Bourbon & Branch. Sifting invitingly through vaporized warmth, the band circumvents one’s mind from cold exterior, shifting the focus onto a heady, melodic atmosphere. However, that cerebral journey goes beyond the pillowy marshmallow drifts, traversing treacherous heart-palpitating terrain amid the ethereal experience. Tonight, they’ll be joined by the consuming, thunderous thumping, heavy-psych module of Meddlesome Meddlesome Meddlesome Bells. The gloomy, resonating, sonic aftermath of Lunacy, a.k.a. Nick Kulp (ex-Far-Out Fangtooth, ex-Creepoid), also celebrates his latest release Life We Choose To Follow (Funeral Party Records) while the space-bombarding, reeled-in cruise of Seafrost kicks this show into gear. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

New Loadcard EP Available for Streaming & Download

Free-floating between joy-inducing, synth-steering, playful, electronic grooves and juxtaposing disenchantment, Loadcard, a.k.a. Cameron Konner, consistently shifts gears on his latest EP Perfect Balance, available via DZ Tapes. Those experimental twists between bright soundscapes and desolate, moody, melodic avenues dictate an odd-ideal sense of equilibrium. (Photo by Jordy Lyric)

New Track: "Not Losing Sleep" - Thin Lips

Thin Lips are heading out on a sweet European tour with Philly pals Modern Baseball and The Superweaks towards the end of this month. The three tourmates will also be joining forces for a split 7" that will be released by Oxfordshire indie label Big Scary Monsters. You can check out Thin Lips' piece of the pie, a power-pop gem titled "Not Losing Sleep," which premiered yesterday over at GoldFlakePaint

New Music Video: "Bread Eyes" - The Mysteries

The Mysteries get freaky in the streets (and sometimes the bushes) of Philadelphia in their new video for "Bread Eyes". Sporting the latest in eyewear that seems to be catching on throughout the city, the band provides an odd interpretation of the song's title. It's the lead single from the group's upcoming release, New Age Psychedelic Experiment. The Mysteries will bring their Doors-inspired brand of psych-pop to Johnny Brenda's on Friday, January 20, where they'll be sharing the bill with Ceramic Animal and Satellite Hearts.

New Track: "Doesn't Matter" - Spirits

The opening steps of illuminating keys broaden via synth/strings before unifying vocals engage in Spirits' latest single “Doesn’t Matter”. As the ethereal instrumentation expands its territory, intricately overlapping vocals hit from odd, encompassing angles. Exploring freewill, the song gathers strength, and overflows with emotion.
