New Video: Audiotree Live Session - Cayetana

Cayetana stopped by Audiotree for a live session while they were in Chicago for two nights at the Double Door, supporting The Bouncing Souls and The Flatliners. The set consists of fan favorites ("Serious Things Are Stupid," "Freedom1313" & "Hot Dad Calendar") as well as a couple of unreleased songs ("Certain For Miles" & "Mesa"). The ladies also shared that they'll be self-releasing their next album. Cayetana already have a hefty U.S. tour schedule lined up for 2017, where they'll be supporting Lemuria on their 10th Anniversary tour for the group's first LP Get Better. You'll be able to catch them in Philly on Saturday, February 18 at the First Unitarian Church. BTW: Props to Augusta Koch for toughenin' it out through this session!

Trying Science Get Methodical on Debut EP

The Austin four-piece math rockers, Trying Science, have recently released their debut EP, Vacation For Snakes, and it falls nothing short of impressive. The instrumentals on Vacation For Snakes are technically sound and inherently dramatic, leaving no void for vocals or excess. Their songs don't take long to ramp up into full-blown masterpieces of winding guitars and deftly placed effects. Their sound can be compared to a less spacey God Is An Astronaut or a lyrically-devoid Mew. While songs like "Blowing Raspberries" and "Dad's Other Daughter" are melodic and pleasant, Trying Science can also cross into prog-metalesque territory on tracks like "Sick,Sick 6" and "OFPS" where their technical skill shines brightest. Trying Science have a well-produced, clean, and intriguing debut that points to a promising future. Catch them January 5th at Beer Land for their next live performance.

New Mumblr Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Mumblr recently returned from an extensive journey around the U.S. that they dubbed the Family Fun Tour. They also recently shared a collection of recordings, accumulated over the last three years and now titled Foster Kids: B-sides and Unreleased Songs. The Philly quartet will be donating all proceeds from the seventeen-song album to Planned Parenthood so be as generous as you can and grab your copy below. Mumblr is scheduled to perform next in Philly on Thursday, January 26 at Johnny Brenda’s, but you never know if the guys will pop up for a performance somewhere around town before then so keep a lookout.

Weekend Warrior, December 9 - 11

With the strength to reveal emotively vulnerable narratives, giving those pensions melodic instrumental legs to run on, Petal, a.k.a. Kiley Lotz, flourishes, sharing confidential tales that bloom with beautiful, rolling, instrumental momentum. She captures personal imagery, which realistically illustrates a full spectrum of emotion, while simultaneously unlocking universal threads. On Sunday night, Petal plants the initial seeds for fellow Run For Cover labelmates, Pinegrove, who shell out contemplative, earnest, alt-country stews, bringing one in close, and then forging fairly enthusiastically ahead on the heels of releasing Instigator, Kevin Devine & The Goddamn Band welds insightful, society-reflecting songwriting with exuberant powerpop possibilities.
