Kill Alters bring their mind-melding avant-noise to Union Pool 4/08

Introducing an EP with a 12 second recording of the infamous Casio demo tune is definitely an unconvential choice, but Kill Altars is far from being a conventional band. Their latest release, no self help is driven by thick, primative tom-toms, and features the intesection of fuzz and noise, colliding against half-sung vocals that sound as if they're edging closer and closer toward a total mental meltdown. The release is a trippy, psych/noise freakout daring you to push it over the edge. Take a listen to the EP below, but behold the band live for yourselves at Union Pool 4/8.-Olivia Sisinni


New Henry Double Release Available for Streaming & Download

Music from a new band prototypically trickles out a few songs at a time. However, the quintet of Henry, a.k.a. Evan Luther, Jason Baxter, Sean Mckenty, Grey Durham, and Edward Leinheiser, have abandoned the methodical crawl in favor of sprinting out of the gates, issuing a pair of releases Oui Ja Yes! and Is Paris Burning?. The band exhibits a knack for creating mellowing melodies within an experimental trajectory that are capable of shifting into an aggressive gear.


New Track: "Authentic Alien Perfume" - Taiwan Housing Project

“Authentic Alien Perfume,” the first single off Taiwan Housing Project forthcoming album Veblen Death Mask (available on May 5 via Kill Rock Stars) lights a fire under you. With an intoxicating, immediate, rolling-through-the-neighborhood groove complemented by unrestrained, rattling, noise-guitar riffs, the interplay of dual-fronted vocals, and brisk brutal blasts of saxophone, the track refuses to be bound by a predetermined script. Catch the band’s record release show on May 6 at Johnny Brenda’s with Igneous Eyes, Ursula, and Ian Svenonius!

New First Time's the Charm Compilation Available for Streaming & Purchase

First Time's the Charm was initially held in 2013 at PhilaMOCA, providing a supportive environment for women, members of the LBGTQ community, and people of color to form bands and perform on stage for the first time. The rad event raised funds to help start the DIY PHL PA Share program, which has provided amplification for nearly 250 events in the Philly community. The sophomore incarnation of FTTC returned last year to the beloved, former mausoleum/Mad Decent HQ, expanding to a two-night festival. Well, 15 of its participating acts came together once again to contribute recordings to the No Gatekeepers: First Time's the Charm 2016 compilation, which was recorded/mixed by James Clark Connor and produced by John Vettese at WXPN. Check out tracks from fledgling acts such as Aster More, Dumb Hair, Heretrix, Sister Trudy, and many others! You can stream and purchase the album below, and all proceeds will be donated towards putting together the next FTTC.

New Track: "Ginger Tea" - Shelf Life

Scotty Leitch, a.k.a. Shelf Life, will release his latest album, Christian Coated Ethical Arena, early next week (April 3). It’s latest glimpse, “Ginger Tea,” hangs in an intimate, disenchanting space. The calm closeness of soft, cohabitating lead vocals is countered by the friction and promise of an external storm. Shelf Life is also slated to perform on Thursday, April 6 at The Pharmacy with Blue Smiley, Fond Han, and Options.
