New Friendship EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Friendship recently shared its new EP F​/​V Hope via Sleeper Records. From an unguarded point of solitude, this collection of country/folk-flavored songs tap into an emotive position of reflection and internal pensions. The sparse but precisely utilized instrumentation characterizes an aching comfort and dusty-ticking percussion with warm hues of steel guitar, reverberating acoustic strums, etc., all adding detail to the imagery of personal narrative. The album draws you in close and holds you for a little while. (Photo by Abi Reimold)


New Track: "Rich Man" - Friendship

F​/​V Hope, the forthcoming EP from Friendship, will be released via Sleeper Records on May 27. Dusty drums and shimmering, subtle string work set the tone of “Rich Man,” as Dan Wriggins's guttural bellow describes the discourse of catching up with friends/family,\ and the powerful positive imprint that they have on our lives. Abi Reimold joins in creating a momentous, uplifting, harmony-fueled conclusion. On Saturday, May 27, All Nite Diner hosts Friendship’s EP release show, which also includes Naps.

Left & Right LP Release Show at Everybody Hits Sept. 16

Indie-rock quartet Left & Right has been sharing tastes of its new album, The Yips (WarHen Records), for months now. And the band’s follow-up to 2014's Five Year Plan has the group teaming up once again with producer Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., Parquet Courts) to create a medley of lush soundscapes that also succeed in challenging the members as songwriters and performers. It's an album that's worthy of celebration, which is what they'll be doing this evening at Everybody Hits for the hometown stop of their current tour. However, it will also be a bit of a bittersweet one, since it will mark their last Philly show with drummer Zak Krone. Let’s make it a memorable night, where they’ll be joined by the vibrant alt-country melodies of Friendship, the multi-layered fuzz of Horsecops, and Boston's Sneeze! Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 8pm, $8, All Ages (Drawing by Jess Cavaluzzi) - Bill McThrill

Straw Hats & Spill Opening for Kississippi at PhilaMOCA Feb. 18

Garage-punk trio Straw Hats, featuring members of The Districts, and indie-rock outfit Spill, which houses former members of Placeholders and We Were Skeletons, set out on the road together earlier this month for what was dubbed their "Valentine's Tour." After tearing up DIY spots in the South and Midwest, the gang will be coming home tonight to a talent-filled, polarizing bill at PhilaMOCA. Headlining this evening will be Kississippi, who has enchanted the blogosphere with their latest EP We Have No Future, We're All Doomed (Softspeak Records). You'll also find Maine transplants Friendship warming things up with their simmering folk tunes. Come enjoy the peaks and valleys that will be traveled throughout the evening! PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 7:30pm, $7-$10, All Ages (Straw Hats Photo by Gilbo Gabbins) - Alexis V.
