Record of the Month: Renata Zeiguer "Old Ghost" - release party at Elsewhere 06.20

On first listen, the songs and sounds of Renata Zeiguer’s debut album Old Ghost are deceivingly simple. Indie rock influences clash with her delicate voice in interesting if not straightforward ways. Yet there’s an appealing aspect of Old Ghost that continues to draw the listener in as she paints an image of the world that is filled with naturally occurring voids that are at once brutal and beautiful. Her voice feels equally morose and triumphant as she explores themes of identity and loss. Nature also plays a large role in the Zeiguer’s lyrics; cosmic elements of our world like the moon and the mundane creatures who inhabit it both haunt and captivate the singer. These poetic lyrics burrow themselves in her ethereal voice and unfold in expansive and cathartic moments as the production swerves from angular to harmonious. Old Ghost is an album that burns softly if heard in the background but illuminates brightly when it is lived with. The entire record can be streamed below and you can hear Zeiguer perform at Elsewhere on June 20. - Tucker Pennington





New Dark Thoughts Album Available for Streaming & Download

After teasing us with a few lo-fi demo cassettes, containing songs featured on their new studio release, Dark Thoughts's sophomore album, At Work, is now available via Stupid Bag Records/Drunken Sailor Records. The band continues to build on their catalogue of Ramones-inspired pop-punk that has carried their tunes from the DIY spaces of Philly to a wider national/international audience. The punk trio is scheduled to head out on the road next month, and will be coming home to a gig at Boot & Saddle, opening for Iron Chic. You can stream and download At Work below.





New Music Video: "Polyfoam" - Empath

Empath allow their freak flag to fly with some freeform dancing under misty lights in the new video for their latest single, "Polyfoam". The track is featured on the band's upcoming 7-inch, Environments, due out July 23 via Get Better Records. The release is inspired by a series of Irv Teibel field recordings from the 60s/70s. It's the follow-up to the group's breakout EP Liberating Guilt And Fear, which they are currently on tour in support of. Right now, Empath's next scheduled Philly performance is set for Wednesday, October 10 at the First Unitarian Church, where they'll be opening for Swearin'. (Photo by Hillary Jones)





Fresh Buzz: Triathalon plays Brooklyn Steel on June 18th

In this new age of bedroom pop and DIY everything, Georgia's band Triathalon, who recently resettled in NYC, offers a sound all its own, blending elements as varied as soul, pop, jazz, and electro. Attempting to label their music proves challenging - and that's part of the plan, since they state that they "work towards a sound that can’t easily be defined.” Thriathalon's first two EP sounded like rather unfocused takes on anything within the indie realm, from dream pop to slacker rock. Third LP Online, released earlier in 2018, sounds like music made by a different band altogether: the production is more mature, the sound more focused, and a newfound passion for soul seems to have shuffled the band's sonic cards. “Hard to Move” is reminiscent of a lo-fi, synthed version of Michael Jackson’s “Blame it on the Boogie,” while “3” is backed with a thumping bass verse that cleverly transitions to a jazz-inspired keyboard interlude. This is a band with lots of potential, check them out live on June 18th at  Brooklyn Steel. - Lily Crandall
