Nightlands Slowly Building Sounds at PhilMOCA Oct. 25

Nightlands Slowly Building Sounds at PhilMOCA Oct. 25

There is no doubt that bassist Dave Hartley ranks up there as being one of the most highly sought-after Philly musicians these days with his skills being recruited to back fine acts like The War on Drugs, Sondre Lerche, Sharon Van Etten and Buried Beds. However, he somehow still finds time to work on his very own project Nightlands, which has a new full-length album titled Oak Island scheduled for release on January 22 via Secretly Canadian. Hartley has also been doing some recruiting of his own pulling from the pool of talented local area musicians to bring his shimmering compositions to life, and you’ll have the opportunity to hear what he has been slowly building when Nightlands headlines tonight at PhilaMOCA. This evening’s bill will also feature Baltimore’s Soft Cat (Friends Records) and a solo set by Michael Johnson, a.k.a. Ape School (Hometapes). PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 9pm, $7 - $10, All Ages - Q.D. Tran
