New Track: "Indigo" - Kississippi

Friendship Album Release Show at Everybody Hits Oct. 17

The quartet of Friendship celebrates the same-day release of You’re Going to Have to Trust Me via Burst & Bloom Records, tonight at Everybody Hits. The group produces a crackling fire of affecting folk/alt-country. With a twangy endearing instrumental base that slices through the outdoors, Friendship embraces the power of lyrical narratives, comfortly building a tunnel from one’s heart to the outside world. However, while these moments tend to simmer, they are prone to volatile flare ups were that even keel is traded in for sincere raw turbulence. Tourmate Abi Reimold brings her own brand of torrentially soothing folk. The calming, melodically rich, lyrically poetic, bedroom sounds of Kississippi, whose next release We Have No Future, We’re All Doomed will be available November 20 via Soft Speak Records, will also be on hand as well as the ailing-pop treatment Old Maybe. Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 8pm, $5-$7, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Let Kississippi Give You Shelter From the Storm at Milhouse Oct. 2

So, just in case you haven’t heard, Hurricane Joaquin is fast approaching the East Coast. We are lucky that Philly will (hopefully) only feel its effects with a damp, dreary beginning to autumn. Don’t let the weather stop you from heading down to Milhouse this evening though. In fact, let it serve as a thematic prep for a night of dreamy, relaxing and melodic bedroom-pop courtesy of Kississippi. The Philadelphia-based outfit, featuring Zoë Reynolds and Colin Kupson, will provide the perfect audible backdrop for such weather. Their music is reminiscent of Frankie Cosmos and Mitski in its enveloping sense of calm, precision and emotionally intelligent lyricism. Alongside Kississippi, local math-y electro-rock/pop quartet Edelweiss, folk-punk singer-songwriter Little Tyrant, and New Jersey alt-pop/psych rockers Dollys will add layers and nuance, while maintaining a set focused on introspection and the expressive quality of the vocal performance. Milhouse, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 7:30pm, $3-$5, All Ages - Blake Oetting


Treat Y'rself Fest at PhilaMOCA August 15

Saturday sounds like an optimal time to indulge in some excellent music, food, and crafts. The daylong Treat Y’rself Fest, taking place at PhilaMOCA, offers a comprehensive experience with an additional bonus proceeds will go toward October’s March to End Rape Culture.  A dozen artists are slated to perform, including Kississippi whose intricate lyrical painting set on an acoustic canvas. Myrrias will perform as a duo, inducing a soothing psychedelic daydream. While the jangly art pop of Mercury Girls, the surf-garage-punk combo of The Pretty Greens (featuring Mike Writes), the fuzzy shoegazing haze of Ghost Gum and garage-punk quartet Littler are among those on this packed program. Get there early and treat yourself. PhilaMOCA 531 N. 12th St., 1pm, $10-$12, All Ages –Michael Colavita

Kississippi Opening for Hurry at Michael Jordan July 13

Vivid imagery that places your auditory senses on an airy pillow, balancing the simplicity of acoustic with a hallowing echo, Kississippi lifts and captures you in a web of poetic lyricism and soft intimate vocal tones that hint vulnerability. Co-mingling minimal acoustic guitar instrumentation with intricate descriptions that serve as a magnetizing force, drawing listeners close, while not weighing them down. Tonight at Michael Jordan house, Kississippi opens as the power-pop trio of Hurry begins their run of summer dates, inflecting varying, personal, snapshot lyrics into a steady jangle-and-pop riff and percussive scenario, invitingly suggesting for you to jump on board. The sludgy grunge of Virginia’s Mockingbird, who recently released a new EP Morning After, the emotive rock of Sinai Vessel, and the acoustics of the evocatively named Israeli outfit One-sided Friendships complete a bill that makes you feel things in a polished yet personal manner. Michael Jordan, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 7pm, $5, All Ages - Michael Colavita
