Mister Lies (aka Nick Zanca) has released new track and announced that he will be spending the next month touring Europe for the first time. The track is called "Magichour" and features a contribution from LA's Knower.
Clicky Clicky Muisc blog just shared And I Forgot A Long Time Ago How You Feel, a compilation of ten current acts performing early recordings of Lilys (from 1991 - 1995). Here's Philly's own Pet Milk covering "February Fourteenth" and Arc In Round's rendition of "The Turtle Which Died Before Knowing," which you can download for free below along with the rest of the release HERE.
Nick Millevoi is one of the finest guitarist flying under the radar in Philly’s avant-garde music scene. You may have come across his work while performing on the electric 6-string with such acts as Many Arms, Electric Simcha, Archer Spade, Make A Rising, or one of the numerous jazz projects that he has lent his skilled fingers to over the years. However, when he fearlessly performs solo on his 12-string electric guitar creating some otherworldly sounds, that is the best evidence to support the truth behind my opening statement (and possibly that aliens, in fact, do live among us). Millevoi will be joined on the musically adventurous lineup at PhilaMOCA tonight by instrumental psych rock duo Air is Human, who will also be opening the evening for Japanese Guy, the experimental noise side project from Fleet Foxes’ Skye Skjelset with Andrew J.S. and Chris Icasiano. Yeah, things are about to get even weirder at the Moz. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8:30pm, $7 - $10 Donation, All Ages - Alexis V.
The local label Stayposi Records released the lastest album from The Captain Hates The Sea, As You Will, this week. The band plays a radio-ready brand of electro-pop. They make it fun and keep it positive.
The Ghost Wolves are like tumbleweed blowing through the swamp. There might be a layer of grime on their sheen, but it doesn’t diminish any of their beauty. In fact, it enhances it. Carley Wolf’s fuzzy guitar entwines perfectly with Jonny Wolf’s frenetic drums. And the vocals! Oh those vocals! All the bluesy swagger of Mudhoney’s Mark Arm with the coquettish lilt that only Carley can provide.
Get your hands on Getchya Hip Thrust, a two-song gem that includes the title track and the song "Black Crow" (featuring BP Fallon). Both songs are vibrant delicacies plucked from a humid marsh, so damp that you might be unable to draw a deep breath. But for the real experience, catch them on stage where their intensity and magnetism are amplified to such levels that you might just put on a mask and let Carley call you “Grandma.” See them at the Scoot Inn tomorrow with Ghostbunny and Zest of Yore. Not to be missed. – Written by Josh Denslow
