Frog brings fuzzy folk rock to Caffeine Underground 04.28

There’s a twangy, almost drawling tone to Dan Bateman’s voice when he sings in Frog. Bateman and bandmate Tom White have a folky hue to their music, as if it came from the American heartland rather than the densely populated streets of New York where the two reside. On paper though, that influence can be a little tricky to point out. Frog plays almost fuzzy indie rock with dashes of keyboard chords and glockenspiel melodies filling in the warm tingle of guitar. Still, the duo’s tender dynamics capture the personal feel of folk music and suit the band to intimate performances. You can see Frog live on April 28th at Caffeine Underground, a fittingly cozy setting for the group, alongside Demure and solo performances from Told Slant and Bedbug. – Cameron Carr

Weekend Warrior, April 20 - 22

Last week, I Did My Taxes For Free Online, the new album from Spring Onion, a.k.a. Catherine Dwyer (of Remember Sports), was released via Sleeper Records. Tomorrow evening, All Night Diner host will be hosting its release celebration. One inherently gravitates toward the open-book, observational songwriting. There’s a delicate yet unfiltered honesty as these journal entry/stream of consciousness songs capture personality that can be applied universally. That knack to create concise, impactful imagery, accentuated by illuminating laidback touches of melodic instrumentation, gives these brief episodes a big impression. Snake Boy Gang, a.k.a. Madeline Rafter (formerly of The Original Crooks and Nannies), whose album Spit was also released via Sleeper Records, endears with a candid quirkiness. 2nd Grade, a new project from Pete Gill of Friendship, and the fuzzy-pop of Mortal Combat (featuring Remember Sports’ Jack Washburn) round out a billing you won’t want to write off. – Michael Colavita

New smth savant Compilation Available for Streaming & Purchase

Music collective smth savant was formed last year by Philly producers Kilamanzego and Madam Data. Their monthly performance series Backyard Bxss has offered a common space for local beatmakers, showcasing experimental electronic producers and singers. The events are often live streamed on their Facebook page. As smth savant approach their first anniversary, they’ve released a compilation, featuring associated artists like Orion Sun and Mental Jewelry (both Mental Jewelry and Madam Data have collaborated with acclaimed Philly sound sculptor/emcee Moor Mother). The collective have facilitated some really exciting music in their first year, and this compilation is a solid retrospective on what they’ve already achieved. - Josh Kelly
