New Allison Crutchfield LP Available for Streaming

Allison Crutchfield first cut her teeth in music in high school, co-fronting The Ackleys with her sister Katie (of now Waxahatchee fame). They were later inspired to form pop-punk outfit P.S. Eliot after catching a So So Glos performance in their native home state of Alabama. Allison began appearing on The Deli Philly site with her band Swearin', and later on charmed us with her lo-fi solo effort, Lean Into It. And after the initial spin of her new LP Tourist In This Town, via NPR Music's First Listen, we are totally lovin' it, and predict that 2017 is going to be a most excellent year for the talented artist. The album officially comes out January 27 via Merge Records, and her hometown record release show will be held on Friday, February 10 at the First Unitarian Church, where she'll be joined by her backing band The Fizz, as well as good buddies Radiator Hospital, Pinkwash, Empath, and Try The Pie.

New Music Video: "Ricky (Caught Me Tryin')" - The Spirit of the Beehive

We are happy to hear that The Spirit and the Beehive's highly anticipated forthcoming album, Pleasure Suck, now has an official release date. Due out March 24 via Tiny Engines, the band just shared the LP's lead single, "Ricky (Caught Me Tryin')". The track is also accompanied by a seriously tripped-out video, which came from the mind of Nnamdi Ogbonnaya. The Spirit and the Beehive will be performing next in Philly on February 20 at Baird Mansion Atrium as part of a rad lineup that also includes Naomi Punk, PC Worship, and Dark Mtns

New Joy Again EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Joy Again celebrates their freshly released EP with a show this evening at PhilaMOCA. Available via Never Grow Up Records, the album hovers between its succinctly woven instrumental threads and its unassuming lo-fi inflections. An instant gravitational pull is the result, as the close connection of relaxed but reverberating vocals combine with the subtly strong steer of layered instrumentation, sparking fine grooves. It’s a fine example of the depths and power of simplicity. Ian Sweet, Acid Dad, and Shelf Life complete tonight’s lineup presented by Smilin’ Ambassador.
