Debut Florry Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Brown Bunny is the debut album from Francie Medosch-led Florry, and is now available via Sister Polygon Records. A delicate-fierce, folk dynamic is in play as the intimacy of the personal narratives reels you in. Amid the contemplative, cathartic tones, there’s an adventurous beauty; that balance of stillness and movement consistently shifts the scope from zoomed in to panoramic. All the while, the precision and vulnerability of the songs hold one’s focus.





New The Retinas Single Release Available for Streaming & Purchase

A pair of new tracks have surfaced from garage-psych trio The Retinas. “Back Alley Brats” is a fuzz-forward, percussive march in the night, as the vocals saturate through its narration. There’s a steadiness with an underlying turmoil that appears ready to erupt. “Come On Over” serves a personal invitation, delving into relationship roles and insights in an emotive yet even-keeled manner. Both songs seem placid on the surface, but the seed of agitation is present.





New PITHAIR EP Available for Streaming & Download

Fuck Hardcore is the new EP from Philly quartet PITHAIR. Digging into an immediate, musical menace, the guttural roar of vocals oozes with intensity. The raw and bare nature of the recordings encircles in volatile, earnest eruption. You can find PITHAIR performing next in Philly on Thursday, December 6 at Creep Records, where they'll be joined by fellow locals Full Bush, Solarized, and Bike Crash.

Mad Honey

If Courtney Love had decided she wanted to make psychedelic music instead of punk, I imagine it would have been quite similar to the music Mad Honey produces. The band has a number of songs up on their SoundCloudloud, each one full of grungey, trippy, angsty noise. Without a doubt, the band’s strongest song is “Don’t Forget to Smile.” Maybe I’m just a sucker for some good surf guitar, but those quick, tricky riffs really got to me. The swirling notes of resentment and disquiet dance circles around the fast, almost cheeky guitar solos. Mad Honey also has an unexpectedly potent sweetness underlying much of their music. This is true especially in “10th and Burnside.” The synth notes fall into the subdued cymbals like water droplets hitting your bedroom window. Given that we have a lot of wet weather heading our way this week, I’ll make sure to keep Mad Honey in mind for my rainy days playlist.
