Residuels
"Love Songs
"
mp3
Philly rock ‘n’ rollers Justin Pittney, Mike Cammarata, and Kyle Garvey (a.k.a. Residuels) revamp essential garage cuts on their latest release Love Songs. Available now via Suicide Bong Tapes, the three-piece’s cassette kick-starts with a full-throttle rendition of Rich Berry’s “Have Love, Will Travel.” The power trio’s frenetic take on the song that put bands like Thee Headcoatees and Paul Revere & the Raiders on the map is far from derivative. From the very first lick of guitar, Pittney and his bandmates tap into the original fury at the center of “Have Love Will Travel,” using crashing riffs and uninhibited vocals reminiscent of The Gories.
 
Residuels’ take on The Damned’s debut single “New Rose” is similarly inventive, giving listeners an unadulterated taste of the original song’s rhythm and fuzz. Pittney channels Dave Vanian with ease, mimicking the legendary Londoner’s punk-as-fuck diction as if he wrote the track himself. Clocking in at a few seconds shy of three minutes, the second track on Love Songs is arguably one of the best renditions of the ‘76 single.
 
The same could be said for “You’re Gonna Miss Me.” Opening with a guttural scream, the group’s tribute to psych-rock icons The 13th Floor Elevators is perfectly executed, with each chord and clash of cymbal adding to the instrumented intensity of the already well-loved garage classic. “You’re Gonna Miss Me” feels like a stubborn tantrum, the sonic manifestation of the sort of longing that is borne of desperation and pure desire that is mirrored in the album’s closer “It Girl.” Residuels’ jangly styling of one the most lovelorn (and heart-wrenching) tracks on The Brian Jonestown Massacre's fifth LP is equally captivating, despite being one of Love Song’s quietest tracks, leaving listeners smitten. For die-hard fans of garage rock and newcomers alike, Love Songs doesn’t just pay homage to the genre’s past; it celebrates its vibrant present. - Dianca London

Man Man

Weekend Warrior, October 16 - 18

More than halfway done with their world tour, The Brooklyn Brewery Mash will be stopping in Philadelphia for a week starting this Saturday. “The Mash” brings together music, visual arts, movie screenings, comedy, supper clubs and even debates into a raucous week of parties influenced and aggrandized by local city culture and of course, a whole lot of beer. The first night in the City of Brotherly Love, hosted at the TLA, will showcase local indie-rock stalwarts Man Man. Lead by enigmatic frontman Honus Honus, a.k.a. Ryan Kattner, Man Man are Philly’s very own funky, carnival-esque experimental rock jesters, who are ready to test our varying dance/mosh skills and levels of inebriation, with Brooklyn psych-pop duo Prince Rama opening things up to get the juices flowing. This freebie will be extremely fun, slightly bizarre and completely memorable. TLA, 334 South St., 7pm, FREE (RSVP HERE), All Ages - Blake Oetting

Marshall Allen/Chris Powell Opening for Holly Herndon June 2

Cosmic adventurer Marshall Allen recently celebrated his 91st birthday. The alto saxophonist and leader of Sun Ra Arkestra continues to prove that his creative nature has no bounds tonight when he teams up Man Man drummer and experimental beat-maker Christopher Sean Powell (a.k.a. Pow Pow/Spaceship Aloha). If you are looking for a rare evening of outside-the-box music, which is brought to you by Ars Nova Workshop (so you know that it will be definitely interesting), then you need to get your ass over to Johnny Brenda's this evening. The two local heroes will be supporting blogosphere darling Holly Herndon, who just released her brilliant new album Platform. Johnny Brenda's, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $15, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman


New Track: "Hanging On The Telephone" (The Nerves Cover) - Eel Bros

A special, limited edition seven-inch box set was released to commemorate the third annual Thirty Three and a Third art show held at Gallery1988 in Los Angeles. The collection, which was curated by Dana Lechtenberg, had artists reimagine and reinterpret classic album covers so it was fitting to have some musicians do the same, sharing renditions of some of their favorite songs. Below is a cover by Eel Bros (consisting of Man Man's Honus Honus and Hot Karate's King Cyrus) of "Hanging On The Telephone," a song by The Nerves, which was made popular by Blondie. For the B-side of the 7-inch, the duo also took on Danzig's "Blood and Tears." Other artists such as No Age, Rozwell Kid, and Andrew Jackson Jihad's Sean Bonnette took on bands like Black Flag, Misfits and Wheatus for the box set as well.

The Deli Philly’s New Year’s Eve Show Roundup

There is too much great local music happening tonight that you can’t possibly cover and see it all. Here’s a roundup of some shows that you should be at to ring in the New Year this evening. A hot one will be newly signed to Saddle Creek, Hop Along, at Johnny Brenda’s for a sold-out show with Thin Lips and roses. The group recently wrapped up its stint in the studio where they’ve been working on their next label album with producer John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Dinosaur Jr., etc.) so there should be plenty of new material. Philly indie-rock mainstays Man Man, opening for Gogol Bordello at the E Factory, should be a fantastic show. Our friends at PhilaMOCA will be hosting Mannequin Pussy and the Jawbreaker reunion. A Sunny Day in Glasgow are capping off their holiday run at Boot & Saddle. Shaky Jake and his Killer Bangs crew are taking over Kung Fu Necktie with psych outfit Drone Ranger and stoner metalheads Ruby the Hatchet. And take some swings at batting cages/DIY music space Everybody Hits with The Spirit of the Beehive and Mike Bell & The Movies. And the list goes on and on… Share how you’re spending your NYE?


Free 40th Street Summer Series Showcase w/Man Man at 40th & Walnut Sts. Sept. 27

This weekend, University City is sending off their 40th Street Summer Series with one hell of a high note: Man Man will be playing a free outdoor concert this afternoon! The prodigal local outfit is known for their insane mashup of styles, grandiose over-the-top lyrics, frantic keyboardsmanship, and one of the most impressive mustaches in modern music. Their music could be described as a head on collision between heyday surf-rock and soulful indie, with just enough pseudo-hip hop to make things interesting. They’ll be joined by opener Needle Driver, an NYC avante-garde rock outfit, who will certainly add to the weirdest, most exhilarating way to say goodbye to summer. Behind the Walnut Street Free Library, 40th & Walnut Sts., 6pm, Free, All Ages - Daniel Ludwig
