New Kerin Maguire LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Kerin Maguire explores personal philosophy and emotional intimacy in her recently released full-length album Self-Titled. Minimally adorned in folk instrumentation, the songs gravitate toward an ever-evolving understanding of the world and one’s place in it. Exhibiting an essence of hope for the future and an honest evaluation of past moments through narrative vignettes, Maguire finds a mechanism to relate on a universal note without sacrificing communicative closeness. We’re all just trying to figure things out one day/moment at a time.

Artists on the rise: Lily Konigsberg goes pop + plays Union Pool on 04.05

We covered Brooklyn musician Lily Konigsberg's music before, since she is involved with art punk (bordering on no wave) trio Palberta. However, considering that band's strictly electric/percussive sound, we hadn't realized Lily had released several solo electronic records. In 2016 she released two records outside Palberta, one uder the moniker Lily and the Horn Horse and the 'kawai that claps' EP under her own name. The former is a collaboration with Matt Norman (aka Horn Horse), and sounds like an eccentric pastiche of jazz and DIY experimental madness. The solo EP, on the other hand, abandons the extreme edges of her previous discography for a poppier approach, although without betraying her signature quirkiness and DIY approach. The record also introduces us to the gentle version of her voice, something miles apart from Palberta's grunts, and to a songwriter with a noteworthy talent for catchy melodies. You can check out Lily's avant pop at Union Pool on April 5th.

New Henry Double Release Available for Streaming & Download

Music from a new band prototypically trickles out a few songs at a time. However, the quintet of Henry, a.k.a. Evan Luther, Jason Baxter, Sean Mckenty, Grey Durham, and Edward Leinheiser, have abandoned the methodical crawl in favor of sprinting out of the gates, issuing a pair of releases Oui Ja Yes! and Is Paris Burning?. The band exhibits a knack for creating mellowing melodies within an experimental trajectory that are capable of shifting into an aggressive gear.


New Track: "Authentic Alien Perfume" - Taiwan Housing Project

“Authentic Alien Perfume,” the first single off Taiwan Housing Project forthcoming album Veblen Death Mask (available on May 5 via Kill Rock Stars) lights a fire under you. With an intoxicating, immediate, rolling-through-the-neighborhood groove complemented by unrestrained, rattling, noise-guitar riffs, the interplay of dual-fronted vocals, and brisk brutal blasts of saxophone, the track refuses to be bound by a predetermined script. Catch the band’s record release show on May 6 at Johnny Brenda’s with Igneous Eyes, Ursula, and Ian Svenonius!

New First Time's the Charm Compilation Available for Streaming & Purchase

First Time's the Charm was initially held in 2013 at PhilaMOCA, providing a supportive environment for women, members of the LBGTQ community, and people of color to form bands and perform on stage for the first time. The rad event raised funds to help start the DIY PHL PA Share program, which has provided amplification for nearly 250 events in the Philly community. The sophomore incarnation of FTTC returned last year to the beloved, former mausoleum/Mad Decent HQ, expanding to a two-night festival. Well, 15 of its participating acts came together once again to contribute recordings to the No Gatekeepers: First Time's the Charm 2016 compilation, which was recorded/mixed by James Clark Connor and produced by John Vettese at WXPN. Check out tracks from fledgling acts such as Aster More, Dumb Hair, Heretrix, Sister Trudy, and many others! You can stream and purchase the album below, and all proceeds will be donated towards putting together the next FTTC.
