New Music Video: "Pieces" - Lithuania

Check out the video for “Pieces,” the latest offering from Lithuania, the project that combines the forces of Dominic Angelella (DRGN King) and Dr. Dog’s Eric Slick! Having expanded to a four-piece, “Pieces” is a fine example of what Lithuania’s debut LP Hardcore Friends might sound like. Paced by a battering-ram combination of percussion and guitar, the song takes a grunge edge that you can dig your teeth into. The old-school skateboarding footage with lyrics injected as notes provides an enjoyable homespun touch. (Photo by Abi Reimold)

"Eight Legged Prawn" & Lithuania Opening for "Thy Foes Profanely Rage" at FUC Dec. 30

Sometimes, when things are tough, it’s a good practice to head to church; First Unitarian Church - that is. Tonight, an exciting air of mystery (that's not so mysterious) surrounds the guest performer who will step up to the pulpit. Word is that those "Eight Legged Prawn" were shipped in from Lititz. Their singer’s vocals ache and growl in a heartfelt tremor that can shake you to the core with resonance, and instrumentally, they expertly manipulate, gradually climbing an incline and then letting it all show upon reaching the summit. Oh and their long-awaited LP is due out in February via an overweight marsupial. This evening, they will be joined at this reaffirming spectacle by Lithuania, the pairing of Dominic Angelella and Eric Slick, who will wet our appetite for their forthcoming full-length Hardcore Friends via Seagreen Records, with the Domesticated God 7”, an instant surge of infectious raw-edged rock with a slightly disorienting psyche conclusion. "Thy Foes Profanely Rage" (another not so mysterious mystery) headline this evening delivering a sermon you won’t want to miss. First Unitarian Church, 2125 Chestnut St., 8:30pm, $17, All Ages - Michael Colavita





Weekend Warrior, November 21 - 23

Some lineups are solid but have weaker spots; others are strong with talent from top to bottom. Remember when the Phillies were strong, and now, well…before I digress, the bill this Saturday night is a can’t miss one, and conveniently it’s at Everybody Hits! The power-trio of Amanda X delivers sincere songs with a pop-punk melded tone and varying tempos that provide a tug and pull of energy that draws you close and then bursts through with the force of a crashing wave. Speaking of power trios, Hurry combines instrumental force and memorable, fuzzed-out guitar licks that lead into infectious rockers with lyrics incorporate a universal touch. Then, there’s the Dominic Angelella and Eric Slick pairing known as Lithuania. Their sound is simultaneously tight and twisted, hitting hard and fast in a lively garage-punk spectrum or delving off the beaten path and seeing where the synth and percussion leads them. The show will be led off by the distorted pop-rock of duo Slow Animal. Everybody Hits!, 529 W. Girard Ave., 8pm, $5, All Ages - Michael Colavita

Hardcore Friends Lithuania at KFN Aug. 20

Uniting two talented musicians in a collaborative effort is a promising proposition, especially when they are Dominic Angelella and Eric Slick. Tonight, Kung Fu Necktie hosts the duo known individually for their work in DRGN KING and Dr. Dog respectively. Despite their busy schedules, the two friends have released a pair of EPs under the name Lithuania. The latest, an adrenalized, catchy burst of garage-pop with a noisy element, Domesticated God, released this past spring, serves as a preview/precursor for a full length LP Hardcore Friends, which is currently in the works and scheduled for release in 2015. This evening's show will also include the open-book folk of Anthony Leitch-led About A Million, while Chicago-based Shiloh, who recently released Last Time For Everything, will be performing a personal amalgamation of rock with notes of garage-grit, inflecting a humorous/up close lyrical personality and a stuck-in-your-head pop sentiment. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $5, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Lithuania Reunite & Still Feeling Oh So Good at KFN Aug. 14

Multi-instrumentalist Eric Slick continues to remain one of the most prolific musicians in our music community. The body of work that he has amassed over the past few years with Dr. Dog as well as his collaborative and solo efforts is rather mind-boggling. Well, this evening, he'll be teaming up with old pal/bandmate Dominic Angelella (of DRGN KING), another tireless Philly musician, and dusting off some old garage-pop tunes that they created together as the band Lithuania. After revisiting their 2010 EP Heavy Hands, the songs have definitely withstood the test of time. Have they written any new ones together? I guess that you'll have to swing by Kung Fu Necktie tonight and find out what the band of "local weirdos" have been up to lately. Don't worry - it will still feel oh so good. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $8, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman
