New Track: "Rooftop" - Ivy Sole

West, the forthcoming EP from Ivy Sole, will be released on July 26. Its lead single, “Rooftop,” sets up a soulful, mellow beat before moonlight reflects on the victims of police brutality and the ongoing devastation it causes. While exhibiting a concisely sharp sense of lyricism, the track shares the significance of societal concerns in normalizing tragic injustices . There is strength amid the sadness and a desire for change. Ivy Sole will be performing at MilkBoy on August 30 as part of The Key Philly Music showcase.





"Empty Promise" wins Best Video at Atlanta Shortsfest

There are several unwritten rules in the music scene regarding the steps that musical artists should take to “make it”: practicing, recording, performing... What goes often overlooked, though, is the power of collaboration. In this regard, NYC based musicians Pascal Le Boeuf, Sarah Goldfeather, and Robby Bowen have teamed up and taken a peculiar path in their musical endeavors: instead of forming a group identity on stage, they’ve decided to keep their separate identities and work with Four/Ten Media on a music video for their new, collaborative track, “Empty Promise”, which offers an intriguing visual representation of human’s dependence and habitual use of technology. Their work won them Best Video at Atlanta Shortsfest and premiered on July 24th. The trio plans to work on a series of videos in the future, and if they are going to be all as good as this one, there is little doubt that more and more people will take notice. – Pearse Devlin





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
