Alt Rock





Weekend Warrior, September 28 - 30

When local artists and businesses throughout a music scene unite as a community in celebration and support of each other, good things are the result. Philly Music Fest serves as an opportune event. What began yesterday at Johnny Brenda’s with Pissed Jeans and Soul Glo continues for the next two days at World Cafe Live. Tonight, the elegant hypnotically galvanizing pop of Vita and the Woolf, the endless boogie of Low Cut Connie, the raw and ragged, sweat-saturated, surf-infused, garage rock of The Whips, and the earnest, scene-transporting, songwriting force of Waxahatchee are among those that shape its sonic surroundings. And tomorrow, Palm cultivates an experimental push-pull, hovering between tranquil waves and frenetic, unconventional changes in direction. The melodic, eruptive, dynamic swings of The Districts, the tenacious, cosmic-rocking, riff-combusting charge of Ruby the Hatchet, and the soothing, introspective vulnerability of powerpop trio Hurry are also slated for Saturday. Come take part in this locals only weekend! – Michael Colavita

New SOLD EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Feels Unreal (Hits Direct Records), the new EP from SOLD, was produced/recorded by Kyle Pulley at Headroom Studios. A haunting, personal recollection is captured in the band’s darkwave, which is drenched in suspense. The immediacy of necessary movement creates an ominous yet free-flowing sound as the importance of the moment brings a heaviness; however, the precision of the music at that pressurized point stabilizes the situation. You can catch the trio at Boot & Saddle on Tuesday, October 23, in support of The Life and Times and Spotlights.

Public Practice sound polished on "Fate/Glory" + perform at Alphaville on 10.26

Like a zombie risen from the soil of CBGB, Public Practice have all the markings of a great New York punk outfit. On their breakout single "Fate/Glory," there's the effortlessly cool poetry found in the lyrics, the manic energy that kicks into overdrive in the second half, and the precise instrumentation that simultaneously feels off-the-cuff. But once the dust finally settles, it's clear there's a lot more going on than a tribute to a bygone era; the frenzy the group has crafted is remarkably danceable, and feels like a more polished cut from The Sonics rather than a Talking Heads track. With just one single out, we look forward to hearing what else this group has to offer when their EP Distance is a Mirror drops at their release show at Alphaville on Oct. 26. - Tucker Pennington





New Track: "Curse These Metal Hands" - Cheer Up

“Curse These Metal Hands” is featured on Sleep Debt, the debut album from the band Cheer Up, which consists of members from No Thank You, The Superweaks, and Thin Lips. The track captures a controlled, explosive, communally-emotive experience. Releasing the pressure in anthemic harmony, there’s a crisp, cathartic swell of feelings/thoughts. It’s a reminder that we’re all in this together. Sleep Debt is out now via Take This To Heart Records.
