Redgrave @ Double Door

Redgrave (Angie Mead and Stephen Howard) have announced their aggressive plans for 2014. The duo plans to record and release two new songs every two months through out 2014. They have released the first two, "Man Child" and "Child". You can stream them here and download them beginning March 4th on itunes or bandcamp. Once all of the two have been completed the band will collect them all for a special vinyl-only release.

You can catch Redgrave at Double Door on March 1st.


Fat History Month takes its latest record on the road (again)

Fat History Month has a left-of-center sound that awarded them an odd type of celebrity – recognition within DIY music scenes nationwide. Still riding on the hype of its latest release, last April’s Bad History Month, the band will be crossing the country in March, including a three-day stint in Austin, before returning to New England for a show in Bloomfield, CT, on March 22. A duo made up of guitarist/vocalist Sean History Month and drummer Mark History Month, the band’s sound is made up of simple components but made unique thanks to constantly changing percussive patterns and guitar tones, and of course, Sean’s nonchalance as he delivers lines like “It was all me. I'm Bad History. I burnt down Rome, and Chicago too.” As local scenes become permeated with overproduced and overthought bodies of work, it’s nice to hear something a bit more bare-bones, and that’s what makes Fat History Month stand out amongst its peers nationwide. – Jake Reed


New Creepoid Album Available for Streaming

Damn, today has been a great day for new local music! Former Deli Philly Year End Poll Best Emerging Artist Winners Creepoid just premiered their new, explosive self-titled album (No Idea Records) via Spin. You can take a listen to it below. And come out to their hometown release show this Thursday, February 27 at Johnny Brenda's with Far-Out Fangtooth and Ecstatic Vision!


New Video: "One Time" (Out Of Town Films) - Marian Hill

Electropop duo Marian Hill will be making their live performance debut tomorrow night at The Boot Saddle. But you can get a preview of how they'll sound right now. The good dudes from Out Of Town Films just posted their session with Marian Hill performing their single "One Time" that was recorded at Haverford Middle School's auditorium, where old friends producer Jeremy Lloyd and singer Samantha Gongol first met (which we're assuming was a weird and wonderful experience for them - it would certainly be for us).


From The Deli NYC's submissions: The Karma Exchange plays Rockwood on 03.11

The Karma Exchange have a unique way of discussing things most of us are familiar with. For lead singer Randy Runyon, America is 'mellow yellow' (in 'Lucky Ricochet') and girlfriends are in love with anyone sharing your name (in opener 'Speaking in Tongues').

In the band's latest full-length 'Neon Translation,' the group offers a lot of challenges to life's usual comforts. And how else to do that... but with the guitars loud, and the drums out for the kill. 'Neon Translation' is the group's most ambitious set of rockers yet. From a Brooklyn-based quartet that's a little bit pop heaven, a little bit brawling rock n' roll, it's good to know our borough still hosts a band that knows how to crank up the dial when it needs to. Listen to single 'Lucky Ricochet' below, and see them at Rockwood's stage 2 on March 11. Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
