Satellite Hearts

Weekend Warrior, April 18-20

There’s a battle-tested, charred aspect in Dan Bruskewicz ‘s singing ; as if his vocal chords have been marinated in whiskey, and touched with smoke giving the words he sings an experienced time-tested appeal.  His voice is coupled with heavy, heart-thumping bass, guitar that picks opportune moments to demonstrate force, but knows when to lay back and play with flow, and harmonica that lets out a charging run when called upon.  TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb blend traditional folk with an untamed country-blues revealing their internal core in the process. Tonight, they celebrate the release of their new Bill Moriarty produced EP Kong. Joining in on the festivities is Pine Barons whose exploratory folk wrap its roots around you and the ever-interesting combination of soulful siren Alison Wadsworth and the heavy blues-rocking Satellite Hearts- Johnny Brenda’s 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 8pm., $10, 21+ -Michael Colavita

Satellite Hearts Opening for The Districts at MilkBoy Philly Nov. 18

It looks like Satellite Hearts will be taking a break from writing new material, emerging tonight at MilkBoy Philly. On their last EP Four to the Four, you really got a sense of a young, talented band exploring multiple genres as they searched for their own voice. I predict that wherever they finally end up landing you’ll find new and old heads roaming through their audience. They’ll be opening for high school sensations The Districts, who have a bright future of their own with multiple record labels currently knocking on their door and an upcoming tour already slated for early next year with White Denim. Here’s your chance to say that you saw them when. MilkBoy Philly, 1100 Chestnut St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman

New Track: "The Kill" - Satellite Hearts

Satellite Hearts, who are best known for their throwback psych-rock sound, find themselves tearing apart the garage on their track "The Kill." It's off the band's new three-song EP Four to the Floor, which was recorded at Converse Rubber Tracks Studio in Brooklyn. The four-piece is set to take some time off to write new material so their last local area performance for a while will take place on Saturday, September 28 at the New Hope Arts and Craft Festival.


Weekend Warrior, July 19 - 21

Blues music at its core drips with desperation gathering an internal strength, which is the byproduct of fearlessly exposing one’s personal tribulations, opening the curtain for all to see and in turn hear. Despite their youth, The Districts, playing upstairs at World Café Live tonight, have already learned the furtive power of harnessing raw yearning despair, etc. to create music that takes the things lodged deep down in the pit of one’s stomach and pulls them to the surface. Rob Grote delivers explosively intense vocals oozing with emotion, intertwined with guitar work that stealthily lies in the weeds, dishing out well-fitted fits of fury to create a dramatic dynamic. The coarse sandpaper Americana folk of Goodnight Texas, who strips it down and sucks you in with excellent strings and storytelling, will be joining them, as well as psych rock quartet Satellite Hearts. World Café Live, 3025 Walnut St., 7pm, $10, All Ages - Michael Colavita
