Metal trio Mutoid Man tours with Danzig

Sludgy, frenetic, and surprisingly melodic, Mutoid Man serves up nasty, heavy jams with a side of skilled riffage.  Their latest release, War Moans, is 12-tracks worth of head spinning metal aptitude, and - paired with a ground shattering live show - opened the door to a summer US tour with Danzig - dates can be found here. Our friends at Delicious Audio were very curious to know what kind of gear went into making their signature gut-busting sound - check out the link below for a Q&A about it. - by Olivia Sisinni

New Music Video: "Dance Number" - Radiator Hospital

We’re very excited to share with you a new track and video from one of our favorite local acts Radiator Hospital. Led by the heartfelt, beautiful words of songwriter Sam Cook-Parrott, “Dance Number” is a “meta-commentary about the way we use music to help us cope, even when everything seems to be falling completely apart.” Cook-Parrott also says, “On the surface it’s a portrait of a sad lonely moment. Ultimately though it's about trying to go through life with an open heart and mind in a world that seems bleaker every day." The song is the first single off the band’s forthcoming full-length Play The Songs You Like, which was recorded by Jeff Zeigler (of Uniform Recording) and is due out on October 20 via Salinas Records. You can catch Radiator Hospital live on Monday, August 28 at PhilaMOCA with Lost Balloons. (Photo by Catherine Elicson)

Hayes Peebles debuts his unique alt folk in 'Ghosts EP' + plays Mercury Lounge 8.24

Listening to Hayes Peebles’ debut EP Ghosts elicits the warm feelings that come from a country croon, while a closer look at the lyrics reveals the wisdom of a masterful songwriter. His honest ballads are embellished by his tasteful arrangements (in which he plays guitar and keys), which are too dynamic to fall neatly into the Americana category. He will be playing a show at the Mercury Lounge on August 24th. Listen to our favorite track, “Home” streaming below. - Lilly Milman

On the rise: Anne Dereaux crafts emotional alt-soul in debut EP

With her debut EP, Book of Lolita, released last month, Nashville born, LA based alt-soul singer Anne Dereaux delivers a soothing record filled with wisdom and vitality. Inspired by an alter ego conceived by the artist when she was a child, the EP marks an emotive and personal journey, featuring vocals that range between confidence, pain, and delicate textures, layered over atmospheric instrumentals. The artist released a video (streaming below) for the song "MO(U)RNING", which complements the emotional track through an ambitious story that transitions from a somber, darkened setting to a luminous ending, painting a journey through pain and heartbreak. She's playing NYC's hot hub Baby's All Right on August 22nd - it's a good sign. - Tafari Lemma

New Track: "Look Up" - Tremellow

Pine Barons' Keith Abrams, a.k.a. Tremellow, just released a new single. "Look Up" sets a somber mood, as the song instrumentally expands, loosening into loose futuristic grooves. It shares a tale of continuing to live and thrive, despite the beckoning of failing health. Regardless of the negative circumstances, a desire to remain active and persist optimistically looms.
