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

Q.D. Tran’s 40 Favorite Philly Records of 2014

It’s that time of year again for our last post of 2014 and my list of favorite Philly records for this year. My procrastination was strong this year, but once again, I just managed to make it just under the gun. It’s always overwhelming to dig into all the great music that we have been lucky enough to come across throughout the year. I’m sure that there are some albums that have fallen by the wayside of this list, but hopefully you’ll discover or rediscover a new favorite like I have while taking this journey. It’s been fun, and as always, looking forward to seeing you on the other side - cheers! - Q.D. Tran

1. Guilty of Everything (Relapse) – Nothing

 

2. You’re Gonna Miss It All (Run For Cover) – Modern Baseball



3. Full Of Snakes (Fleeting Youth) – Mumblr



4. 7” (Wilsuns RC) – Sheer Mag



5. The Spirit of the Beehive (Ranch) – The Spirit of the Beehive

The Deli Philly on Y-Not Radio Tomorrow Morning & Night!

Just wanted to give a heads up that you'll be hearing my lovely, nasally voice tomorrow morning (Wednesday, February 5) at 11am on Y-Not Radio. Head honcho Josh T. Landow was nice enough to ask me to swing by and chat with him about our recent year end poll, and I've been asked to take over the station for an hour to spin tracks from a few of my favorite local emerging artists who were nominated this year. And if you're not a morning person like myself, they'll be running it again later on that evening at 10pm. Hope that I can make your day a little bit better - much love! - Q.D. Tran

The Deli Philly on XPN Tonight!

Howdy Folks!
 
I just wanted to let you know that I’ll be a guest DJ tonight on XPN. John Vettese was nice enough to invite me in to chat about local music and The Deli Philly's upcoming 5th Anniversary Bash this Saturday, October 5 at PhilaMOCA with Night Panther, Literature and The Homophones. I’ll also be spinning tracks from some of my favorite emerging Philly artists. Tune in and check out what rad music I have in store for you and what I said in our session while under the influence (hopefully John cleaned some of it up for the FCC - I can swear like a sailor sometimes ;o). The Philly Local show will run from 9pm - 10pm, and my segment will start around 9:10pm/9:15pm. If you are not near a radio at the time or simply don’t own one, you can also stream it via XPN online.
 
Much love,
Q.D. Tran
