The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Slomo Sapiens

The power trio of Ceallaigh Corbishley, Greg Geiger, and Jon Pritchard, better known as Slomo Sapiens (a band name that you know you wish you thought of), has us excited about the next wave of garage-psych acts, being homegrown in Philly. The group is currently building a recording studio in their buddy’s basement so we are hoping to hear more rad tunes from the local power trio sooner than later. Until then, check out their latest single, “Fangs,” below, and take a gander at our recent interview with The Deli Philly’s Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner HERE.

Amelia Airhorn (The Knocks & Skylar Spence) unveil single "NY is Red Hot"

The sleepless summer nightlife of the city echoes throughout “NY is Red Hot” (streaming) a new track from Amelia Airhorn. A collaborative effort between electronic dance duo The Knocks, and nu-disco vocalist Skylar Spence, the track takes a ride on a time machine to the vintage disco and pop sounds of '80s and '90s New York, a city they pledge loyalty to in the lyrics ("New York is my life and I'm never gonna leave!"). The song pulsates with high energy grooves that conjure up images of sweltering hot summer parties and the carefree city lifestyle. Take it as a reminder to partay! - Tafari Lemma

New Music Video: "Pianos, Heavy Instrument"/"Snow on the Moon" - The Spirit of the Beehive

Together with visual artists/filmmaker/photographer Craig Scheihing, psych outfit The Spirit of the Beehive has provided us with a woozy documentation of their adventures on the road, soundtracked by "Pianos, Heavy Instrument" and "Snow on the Moon," songs sequentially found on band's latest LP Pleasure Suck (Tiny Engines). The former goes along with the band members on a scenic, hillside hike, before melding into the latter, where a lazy, sun-kissed day at the beach is eventually interrupted by the perpetual motion of life on the road. The Spirt of the Beehiove will be continuing their heavy 2017 touring schedule with a nearly month-long stint opening for The Districts this summer, but before they leave home, you can catch the guys and gal this evening at Spruce Street Harbor Park's Waterfront Sessions with Permanent Body.

New Midwestern Exposure LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Midwestern Exposure follows up its Grizzly Bear EP (released earlier this year in March) with a new full-length album, entitled The West. The trio splices elements of haunting country-blues with an ominous bite, stirring up the surroundings; however, despite those sinister sounds, fresh, folk-oriented points of optimism persist as well. They'll be setting up shop at Ortlieb’s on Wednesday, August 9, for a billing with the Dirty Soap Blues Band and King Kong and the Bleeding Hearts.

Kill Alters release 'No Self Helps' + play St. Vitus on 06.16

Brooklyn noisemakers Kill Alters make music that attacks, both physically and mentally. With pulsating percussions, laser-like synths, and the visceral vocals of Bonnie Baxter, the band offers a sound that's aggressive, complex, and demanding. Their compositions break from tradition, incorporating sounds ranging from the industrial to the downright frightening (a baby's laughter), and adopting a nightmarish aesthetic reminiscent of early post punk groups like Throbbing Gristle. Upcoming LP 'No Self Helps' (out June 28th on Haus Mountain) promises something different, and sometimes uncomfortable, through a journey that's complex, textured, and entertaining, every step of the way.  See them live at St. Vitus on 06.16. - Allie Miller
