Allison Crutchfield and the Fizz Step Up to the Plate at Everybody Hits Oct. 1

Allison Crutchfield’s vast musical output has been felt as a part of (the recently reunited) P.S. Eliot and the fierce, gritty, enthusiastic Swearin’ as well as Waxahatchee. Tonight, Crutchfield and her backing band the Fizz step up to the plate at Everybody Hits. Slated to release a yet-to-be-named album - courtesy of Merge Records early next year, she can sit back, allowing the lyrical honesty take the lead among a pensive percussive backdrop or conversely rear back as a heavier fast-paced tenacity rushes forward. Crutchfield and her bandmates will also be joined by the combustible psych-grunge merging of The Spirit of the Beehive and the melodic snarl of pop-punk trio Eight to get the festivities rolling. Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 9pm, $10, All Ages - Michael Colavita





Lubec's Cosmic Debt Out Today, Release Show Tomorrow

It's been two years since we were gifted Lubec's lauded The Thrall and finally today, we get their second full length with Cosmic Debt.

Thematically exploring karmic debenture in life, Cosmic Debt gifts us the Lubec we've grown to love over the years; dreamgaze personified by reverbed string riffs, eruptive drumming by Matt Dressen and vocals that call for attention.

Four fuzzy instrumental-like interludes break up a pleasant distortion of tracks, led by layers of Eddie Charlton's ripe vocality. Piano playing by Caroline Jackson adds a slightly delicate but necessary element which, coupled with her sometimes rawly spurted vocals (like in the album's title track), round out the sound that separates Lubec from other "gazey" acts in town.

Lubec's release show for Cosmic Debt is tomorrow at Blackwater with supporting performances from Talkative, Dog Thieves, Two Moons and Radler

Stream Cosmic Debt below and be sure to stop by Blackwater tomorrow to celebrate.





Grunge rockers Big Cheese drop new LP "Supersonic Nothing"

The Nirvana comparisons for Brooklyn's own Big Cheese are really easy - and definitely there - but complemented by other unexpected influences - for example, in Adam Patten's vocals we hear a little of Soul Coughing, a criminally underrated Brooklyn band from the late '90s. Supersonic Nothing, the Big Cheese's latest LP, is a lo-fi whirlwind combining sludgy, sledge hammer riffs with vocals that always seem to be teetering on the brink of a nervous collapse. If grunge isn't dead, Big Cheese are the ones who are here to prove it. Check out their new music video "Thank You" below. - Olivia Sisinni

Malion Exudes Dirgy Grunge Themes On New "Underground" Video

 Malion are a trio of grunge purveyors who exude dirgy garage rock sounds with harrowing vocals.  Having released their first EP back in 2014, Malion just released  their latest EP, Troglodyte, which bubbles and ruptures into a sludge-filled void of musical darkness.  The band’s latest music video for their song “Underground” mirrors their sound in it’s roughshod production and depiction of grimy downtown ennui.  While Malion may still be an ‘underground’ band, they’ve got an oddly infectious disaffected charm that seeps through to listeners.  Check out their new music video here:

Pinkwash Plays Host to Slow Mass at Everybody Hits Sept. 30

Situated along the western edge of Northern Liberties on Girard is batting cage and DIY venue Everybody Hits, who this week will be hosting a stacked set headed by Philly's own Pinkwash.  The duo of Joey Doubek and Ashley Arnwine churns out intensely gripping tunes that are as swift as they are leaden, captivating a wide array of attention in the music community, while finding homes for their releases on labels Sister Polygon and Don Giovanni Records. The band’s name is derived from the term "pinkwashing," which refers to the often unregulated practice of companies aligning their products and brands with cancer awareness and LGBTQ movements without necessarily contributing to those causes. Pinkwash will be joined by fellow Philadelphians Lithuania and Loose Tooth, as well as Chicago-based musical outlet Slow Mass. Slow Mass are currently on tour in support of their new EP Treasure Pains, released earlier this month via Landland. They draw sonic inspiration from associated acts Into It. Over It., My Dad and Former Thieves, while distinguishing their new project as an exciting endeavor with plenty of potential for new material. Everybody Hits, 527 W. Girard Ave., 8pm, $8, All Ages - Josh Kelly
