Debut The Afterglows LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The Afterglows, the musical union of Sam Cook-Parrott (Radiator Hospital) and Michael Cantor (The Goodbye Party), recently shared their self-titled debut full-length album. The home-recordings capture the innate ability of the duo to turn heartache into melody, with Cook-Parrott's acoustic strums and Cantor's layered electric tones as backdrops. It's an intimate look into the late-night, open, honest dialogue between the two housemates. You can stream and download the album below, which is also available on vinyl via Salinas Records.





Blood Sound Opening for Suburban Living at KFN Aug. 24

An evening of saturated dreams, fueled by a soundtrack of guitar/synth-driven nostalgia rock. Layers of dark and provocative melodies with haunted lyrics, supported by well-crafted songs with heart, this is not just one band, but a truly explosive lineup of artists. Philly’s own Blood Sound captures the pop sensibilities of 80's UK rock, fusing well-orchestrated drum programming with shadowy guitars and vocal melodies. They’ll be opening for Suburban Living, the brainchild of Virginia transplant Wesley Bunch, which weaves a lattice of reverberant longing, ensnaring the listener to join them on their sonic quest. Manchester has much to be jealous about these days. Hailing from Brooklyn, Surf Rock is Dead have a defibrillator and a heroic dose of mushrooms for the genre, while Monograms is balls out rock that isn't afraid to have insidiously catchy vocal melodies. Prepare your headspace accordingly. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $6, 21+ - Keith Kelley





Oh Malô bring their soulful and dreamy sound to Great Scott on 8/26

A book review of one of Murukami's novels once said his work was influenced by so many writers it ended up being incredibly original. There's some truth to that description, and it might just apply to Boston band Oh Malô as well. They have sound that's very difficult to pin the tail on, but perhaps taking an index of the components and parts would help. On their latest LP, As We Were their guitars are deeply atmospheric with a light psych feel. The vocals are deeply soulful, and wouldn't feel out of place on any RnB track. The rhythm section, though, is downright muscular, emboldening the sound with an alt or even prog-rock flavor.  The easiest comparison to make would be to Local Natives, but that doesn't help much either, considering they to deftly evade most categorization also. Suffice to say, Oh Malô make quality music that sounds familiar and fresh all at once. You can see them live at Great Scott on 8/26. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber

New Videos: "Mudmouth" & "Domingo" (Live - Out Of Town Films) - Mumblr

Mumblr recently spent some time with the folks from Out of Town Films at their Berks Warehouse HQ. The two resulting performance videos for “Mudmouth” and “Domingo” - both of which are featured on band’s latest release The Never Ending Get Down (Fleeting Youth Records) - display an alluring fragile yet volatile dynamic. “Mudmouth” gently wades in, before the gushing instrumental stream is opened, while “Domingo” immediately brews an ambiance of expansive, entrenching heaviness.





Shana Falana prepares for release of sophomore album + talks about pedals on Delicious Audio

After perfecting their nuanced sound via touring and single releases, the shoegaze duo, Shana Falana, impressed critics with a 2015 debut LP titled Set Your Lightning Fire Free. Follow-up album, Here Comes the Wave is scheduled for a fall release later this year. The band's sound hits all the right sensory marks dealing in positive wonderment and a sense of discovery. Vocals, as sung by singer/guitarist Shana, soar over chiming guitars and tom-tom drums, all of which keep pace with affected, drone-y guitars.
