Queen of Jeans





New Track: "In Dreams" (Roy Orbison Cover) - Queen of Jeans

Queen of Jeans were winners of our Featured Artist(s) Poll last fall. One of the many prizes that comes with this honor is free studio time at Sleepless Sound Studio, and we are excited that they have put to good use. Check out the recording of their cover for Roy Orbison's "In Dreams," which appears on the Summer of Sad compilation from Swell Tone & Z Tapes! (Photo by Rachel Del Sordo)

New Videos: "Moody" & "Pup" (Live - Out Of Town Films) - Queen of Jeans

Dream-pop outfit Queen of Jeans recently stopped by Out Of Town Films headquarters at Berks Warehouse in Philly to record a live session. Performing two songs from the group's self-titled debut EP, the sultry, swagger of "Moody" effortlessly charms, while "Pup" languidly caressess and comforts, taking you away from all your worries in the world. Marissa Lesnick's lead vocals and the band's backing harmonies sound spectacular. You can catch Queen of Jeans live, and fall under their spell on Thursday, August 18 with Grubby Little Hands as part of the Spruce Street Harbor Park Waterfront Sessions. (Photo by Bob Sweeney)

Weekend Warrior, July 22 - 24

Yikes! With temperatures expected to reach the high 90s this weekend, it makes sense to want to stay near an air conditioner or dip your body parts in the ocean. However, for those music-obsessed folks who are a glutton for punishment and good tunes, WXPN’s XPoNential Music Fest is back once again, across the way at the Camden Waterfront. The festival opens this afternoon with two local Philly acts, the ethereal harmonies of Queen of Jeans and songbird Rosemary Fiki, before giving way to national touring favorites like Father John Misty and White Denim. Kurt Vile & the Violators and Ryan Adams and The Shining will be closing out the inaugural day of the event at BB&T Pavilion. Though we are really not digging the scheduling of their noon set slot on Saturday, Kississippi is a good reason to get an early start on a day packed with music, before hiding in the shade in wait for what are sure to be electrifying sets by Gary Clark Jr. and Alabama Shakes. And while Sunday may teeter off from the excitement of the first two days, Eliza Hardy Jones and The Districts will provide you with plenty of beautiful melodies and memories to get you through the upcoming school/workweek. XPonential Music Festival (FRI - SUN), Camden Waterfront/BB&T Pavilion, Various Times (Schedule), Adults $35(w/membership) - $296/Kids $5, All Ages - H.M. Kauffman

Weekend Warrior, May 6 - 8

Still managed to miss seeing Queen of Jeans despite The Deli’s diligent coverage of the talented crew? Lucky for you that the month of May not only brings flowers, but also a vibrant bouquet of 60s-style flower-pop every Friday at Bourbon & Branch compliments of our beloved blossoming local artists Queen of Jeans. The band will have a month-long residency at B&B with performances every Friday featuring a different lineup of local acts. This week, we’ll be presenting the pairing their dreamy-textured 60’s girl-group pop with the 80’s new-wave textures of Suburban Living, whose musical interest falls more in line with Disintegration-era Cure but measures up to Queen of Jeans’ love of reverb-soaked pop sensibility. Joining in on the dreamy, poppy forays of the evening will be The Soft Spots, whose attempts to synthesize the best of the worlds results in tunes that are immediately appealing on the surface but derivationally complex. You can also catch Julia Rainer, a Philly singer-songwriter with a gentle, emotive voice and a powerful sincerity. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N 2nd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Bryce Woodcock
