Eric Slick





Weekend Warrior, August 4 - 6

Eric Slick (Dr. Dog, Lithuania) opens for Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble and Art Feynman this Saturday at Johnny Brenda’s. Exploring and evaluating one’s internal monologue and balancing that against the openness afforded by nature, Slick finds a happy medium. While one is continuously harmonizing conceptual ideals and realities, Slick ventures into the thicket, tapping into a somber sense of key/percussive-oriented calm and peaceful acceptance. However, the mood isn’t one of resignation; there are upbeat, attitude-adjusting points, in which clarifying, melodic pop shines through. Slick leads the way to Art Feynman, a.k.a. Luke Temple (Here We Go Magic), whom recently released a new album, Blast Off Through the Wicker, via Western Vinyl, and multi-textured, thought-provoking Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble. – Michael Colavita

New Eric Slick Album Available for Streaming

Palisades, the debut solo album from Eric Slick (Dr. Dog, Lithuania), officially comes out tomorrow via Egghunt Records. However, it is currently available for streaming via Consequence of Sound. In surrounding himself and creating an array of instrumental depths, he explores personal pensiveness through a peacefully evolving lens. While there are dreary moments, an optimism persists. Slick is currently in the midst of tour dates supporting Sinkane.





New Track: "You Are Not Your Mind" - Eric Slick

Palisades, the forthcoming album from Eric Slick (Dr. Dog, Lithuania), will be released via EggHunt Records on April 21. Concise pockets of percussion unite with keys, pacing the album’s latest single “You Are Not Your Mind”. The song’s pensive, open-air aesthetic rejuvenates, fitting the recent pleasant arrival of spring. Slick will be heading out on a slew of tour dates with Sinkane, starting next week.





New Music Video: "The Dirge" - Eric Slick

You find a seriously depressed Eric Slick (Dr. Dog, Lithuania) in his new music video for the single, "Dirge," which also stars Natalie Prass. It recently premiered over at Clash, where he had a chance to share a bit of insight into the bleak, black & white world (below).

"The post election trauma has left a lot of people feeling hopelessly glued to their social media. The video for 'The Dirge' is an absurdist look into a dystopian living space where Natalie and I try to make the best of our existence while painting our nails, exercising, and singing karaoke on a yoga ball. The computer is watching us and we are watching the computer, ad infinitum."

Slick's debut solo album is due out on April 21 via Egghunt Records. He'll be performing tomorrow afternoon at Kebabalicious, as part of the Boomfantasy Showcase of Dreams 2017, and you can welcome him home from the road on Wednesday, March 29 at World Cafe Live, opening for singer-songwriter Tift Merritt.





Hurry's Halloween Spectacular at PhilaMOCA Oct. 28

Power-popsters Hurry recently shared their new EP, Casual Feelings, which is now available via Lame-O Records. And this evening, they'll be celebrating its arrival by kicking off this festive weekend with their Halloween Spectacular at PhilaMOCA. It's a stacked bill of local music pals who are all set to let loose! Cave People just dropped their new full-length album, Sinning Tree, earlier today via Stereophonodon Records so make sure to give it a spin before heading out tonight. Eric Slick will hopefully be previewing more tunes from his highly-anticipated upcoming solo effort, Palisades. Russell Edling (ex-Kite Party) has joined Cave People, and will be pulling double duty with his band Cherry. Of course, costumes are requested so get creative! PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 7pm, $10, All Ages - H.M. Kauffman
