New Track: "Cold Blooded" - Hound

Metal power trio Hound, featuring Perry Shall (Dry Feet) and Chris Wilson (Ted Leo and the Pharmacists), will be welcoming two releases this evening at Everybody Hits. The studio LP Out of Space was recorded with Will Yip at Studio 4, and Live at Golden Tea House was laid down before the demise of the beloved West Philly DIY venue. Both albums will be available via SRA Records, and you can listen to the track "Cold Blooded" from the former below.


The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Queen of Jeans

The trio known as Queen of Jeans quickly caught our attention with their debut single “Dance (Get Off Your Ass).” Crystallizing lead vocals and harmonies with a hypnotic garage/surf ride that pops, Miriam Devora, Matheson Glass, and Nina Scotto are finding the answer to their “three-way existential crisis.” The ladies, who have performed previously in bands such as Work Drugs and The Interest Group, emerged victorious in our latest Featured Artist(s) Poll. Check out our recent interview with Queen of Jeans HERE, where surprisingly you’ll find Hanson popping up more often than you’d think.


Delicious Audio Feature: Salt Cathedral - see them live at Rough Trade on 12.19.

If you are fascinated with the idea of parallel worlds, you should immerse yourself in the music of Brooklyn’s (via Colombia) duo Salt Cathedral (the band will perform live at Rough Trade on December 19th). Their gently impressionistic arrangements and celestial atmospheres, combined with Juliana Ronderos’ angelic voice and melodies, might transport you to the closest thing to the seventh heaven you’ve ever experienced – or at least a dancey version of it. We asked Juliana a few questions about the band’s creative process, check out the link below.

Boyscott Releases "Goosebumps" Cassette

 Cassette-heads rejoice! The young bloods in Boyscott, the Nashville based surf rock group, released a new full-length cassette aptly titled Goosebumps, on 11.17, via Pizza Tape Records. Deft guitar tones and sweet male-female vocal exchanges set the tone of a beguiling debut reminiscent of The Drums or Beach Fossils.

 Comparisons aside, where such similar debuts maintained a one-dimensional approach, Boyscott’s Goosebumps offers more versatility, with songs like “Blonde Blood” and “Nova Scotia 500” establishing surf-rock sensibilities, only to be purposefully challenged by the worldly “Marco Polo.”

Other songs simply stun in both tone and composition, none more notably than “Killer Whale,” presumably highlighting an awkward dichotomy between two people recently acquainted. All in all, Goosebumps provides a proper introduction to one of Nashville’s soon-to-be preeminent surf rock groups, Boyscott. -Sean McHugh




Creepoid Throwing Down at KFN Nov. 25

Philly's own Creepoid collides at the intersection where shoegaze meets stoner rock, clarity meets noise, and melody is deconstructed. The band's songs move at an ambling pace with a haunting and dazed sluggishness that can be attributed to a deep affinity for gloomy space-rock bands like Bardo Pond and their progeny. But unlike Bardo Pond’s trance-inducing drones and repetition, the quartet is decidedly more focused on song structure and movement. Some songs sweep you through languid explorations of smooth, glassy soundscapes reminiscent of Dead Meadow's Feathers, while others churn and grind in a quagmire of sound like True Widow. Creepoid will be throwing down this evening at Kung Fu Necktie, and will be supported by Brooklyn’s anthemic pop-punkers Worriers, who produce buoyant, tuneful jammers - most comparable to their labelmates Screaming Females's style of powerful and driving rock. With this comparison, Worriers may be considered a bit lacking in the shred, but they make up for it in their unrelenting pace and energy. Also joining the festivities will be Mercury Girls, who channel Ecstasy And Wine-era MBV, overlaying dreamy textures over twee-oriented structure and melody, and Legendary Divorce will harness the raw energy of Nirvana’s more esoteric, subversive post-punk, paired with befitting Courtney Love-style vocals, oscillating between throat-rending yelling and strung-out slurring.
