Take some 'Time' out for the Toads

The Toads were always a favorite. With their newest album, Time, they've solidified that even more. 

Time still operates the same pop-punk plane The Toads usually skirt on, but with a slight twist. It's not just delightfully punky tunes anymore, but also an incorporation of more of a 90's alternative feel to the tracks. At times, Time even touches on a Beatles-esque '60s pop quality, like on the track "Alien Gene."

You can catch The Toads performing again 8.3 at Bunk Bar with Plastic Cactus and Slow Caves. They'll be playing a few shows around here and Washington before taking a brief hiatus at the end of September for a few weeks, but there will be plenty of opportunities to see these bad boys live before then. In the meantime, stream Time below.





Ritual Talk releases single "Help I've Been Dreaming", plays Pianos 08.04

Psych-Rock band Ritual Talk released an extremely intriguing debut single (with video, streaming below) entitled, “Help, I’ve Been Dreaming”, and is scheduled to perform at Pianos on August 4th. The track is an art-rock song that flows through so many sounds, it becomes difficult to even categorize, yet manage to stay within tasteful boundaries, never sacrificing musical coherence for the sake of experimentation. A rather complex ¾ beat starts the song off, traveling into more psych-rock, wavier sounds from both the guitar and harmonizing female and male vocals. The lyrics are serene, succint but poetic. Then, a more indie rock sound evolves through intricate guitar pattering, slowly evolving as background organs enter the soundscape. If you dig this single, keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming album and don't miss them live!– Pearse Devlin





Devon Gilfillian Releases “Here and Now” Video + kicks off fall tour

For Nashville-via-Philadelphia artist, Devon Gilfillian, soul music is all about one’s roots. In his new video for the track “Here and Now,” he infuses his Nashville surroundings into his R&B music, creating a soulful mix of folk, blues, country, and groove. According the Gilfillian, the song is about a woman who he will one day love and live in the moment with. He is currently on a southern tour, and will be back in Nashville on August 17th to play the Soulshine Music Loft. -Lilly Milman, photo by Lindsey Patkos





New A Stick and A Stone Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

It's been over four years since A Stick and A Stone's last release Night Vision and debut Opal Nightly (which is way too long, in our honest opinion). But thankfully, the project's mastermind, transgender singer-songwriter Elliott Harvey, has returned, with a partner in crime in viola player Myles Donovan (Disemballerina, Negative Queen, Ominous Cloud Ensemble), for their hauntingly captivating new album The Long Lost Art of Getting Lost, an apt title for the ethereal headspace and otherwordly places that the duo takes us during this seven-song journey, which is now available via Sentient Ruin (US vinyl/tape), Cold (EU vinyl), Breathe Plastic (EU tape), and Sprit House (CD). You can also stream the EP below, and catch A Stick and A Stone live in Philly tomorrow night at Panorama Art Studio with Nothern Liberties, Voyager, and Jesse Sparhawk.
