Alt Pop


Local pop rockers Naked Wild have released a brand new EP titled “Pocket Whiskey”. This EP contains the previously released single “Stay Girl”. It kicks off with “Funk Yourself” which naturally has a funky guitar lick for an intro. Also contains some nice solo work by lead guitarist Mitch Burton. These boy's sound is constantly maturing with every tune I hear. They have recently signed with Trouble Town Records located at Polson Pier in Toronto and celebrated this release with a sold out show at the Garrison last weekend. Your next chance to see ‘em is July 29th at Lee’s Palace. – Kris Gies



Dent May to release "Across The Multiverse" LP on 8.18 + plays The Glass House 8.05

Mississippi-born and LA-based Dent May never thought he would be singing about the 90210, but that’s exactly what happened on his upcoming album, Across the Multiverse. The singer and multi-instrumentalist has learned to love his new city, and it’s evident in every lyric and funky synth beat. Singles like the titular “Across The Multiverse,” (streaming below) which features Frankie Cosmos, have a certain groove to them thats typical of Dent May, but with a more refined production style and a pointed theme. The rest of the album will be released on August 18th, and he will be playing a show at The Glass House on August 5th. -Lilly Milman

Ritual Talk releases single "Help I've Been Dreaming", plays Pianos 08.04

Psych-Rock band Ritual Talk released an extremely intriguing debut single (with video, streaming below) entitled, “Help, I’ve Been Dreaming”, and is scheduled to perform at Pianos on August 4th. The track is an art-rock song that flows through so many sounds, it becomes difficult to even categorize, yet manage to stay within tasteful boundaries, never sacrificing musical coherence for the sake of experimentation. A rather complex ¾ beat starts the song off, traveling into more psych-rock, wavier sounds from both the guitar and harmonizing female and male vocals. The lyrics are serene, succint but poetic. Then, a more indie rock sound evolves through intricate guitar pattering, slowly evolving as background organs enter the soundscape. If you dig this single, keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming album and don't miss them live!– Pearse Devlin

New A Stick and A Stone Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

It's been over four years since A Stick and A Stone's last release Night Vision and debut Opal Nightly (which is way too long, in our honest opinion). But thankfully, the project's mastermind, transgender singer-songwriter Elliott Harvey, has returned, with a partner in crime in viola player Myles Donovan (Disemballerina, Negative Queen, Ominous Cloud Ensemble), for their hauntingly captivating new album The Long Lost Art of Getting Lost, an apt title for the ethereal headspace and otherwordly places that the duo takes us during this seven-song journey, which is now available via Sentient Ruin (US vinyl/tape), Cold (EU vinyl), Breathe Plastic (EU tape), and Sprit House (CD). You can also stream the EP below, and catch A Stick and A Stone live in Philly tomorrow night at Panorama Art Studio with Nothern Liberties, Voyager, and Jesse Sparhawk.
