Residuels
"Love Songs
"
mp3
Philly rock ‘n’ rollers Justin Pittney, Mike Cammarata, and Kyle Garvey (a.k.a. Residuels) revamp essential garage cuts on their latest release Love Songs. Available now via Suicide Bong Tapes, the three-piece’s cassette kick-starts with a full-throttle rendition of Rich Berry’s “Have Love, Will Travel.” The power trio’s frenetic take on the song that put bands like Thee Headcoatees and Paul Revere & the Raiders on the map is far from derivative. From the very first lick of guitar, Pittney and his bandmates tap into the original fury at the center of “Have Love Will Travel,” using crashing riffs and uninhibited vocals reminiscent of The Gories.
 
Residuels’ take on The Damned’s debut single “New Rose” is similarly inventive, giving listeners an unadulterated taste of the original song’s rhythm and fuzz. Pittney channels Dave Vanian with ease, mimicking the legendary Londoner’s punk-as-fuck diction as if he wrote the track himself. Clocking in at a few seconds shy of three minutes, the second track on Love Songs is arguably one of the best renditions of the ‘76 single.
 
The same could be said for “You’re Gonna Miss Me.” Opening with a guttural scream, the group’s tribute to psych-rock icons The 13th Floor Elevators is perfectly executed, with each chord and clash of cymbal adding to the instrumented intensity of the already well-loved garage classic. “You’re Gonna Miss Me” feels like a stubborn tantrum, the sonic manifestation of the sort of longing that is borne of desperation and pure desire that is mirrored in the album’s closer “It Girl.” Residuels’ jangly styling of one the most lovelorn (and heart-wrenching) tracks on The Brian Jonestown Massacre's fifth LP is equally captivating, despite being one of Love Song’s quietest tracks, leaving listeners smitten. For die-hard fans of garage rock and newcomers alike, Love Songs doesn’t just pay homage to the genre’s past; it celebrates its vibrant present. - Dianca London

Weekend Warrior, May 6 - 8

Still managed to miss seeing Queen of Jeans despite The Deli’s diligent coverage of the talented crew? Lucky for you that the month of May not only brings flowers, but also a vibrant bouquet of 60s-style flower-pop every Friday at Bourbon & Branch compliments of our beloved blossoming local artists Queen of Jeans. The band will have a month-long residency at B&B with performances every Friday featuring a different lineup of local acts. This week, we’ll be presenting the pairing their dreamy-textured 60’s girl-group pop with the 80’s new-wave textures of Suburban Living, whose musical interest falls more in line with Disintegration-era Cure but measures up to Queen of Jeans’ love of reverb-soaked pop sensibility. Joining in on the dreamy, poppy forays of the evening will be The Soft Spots, whose attempts to synthesize the best of the worlds results in tunes that are immediately appealing on the surface but derivationally complex. You can also catch Julia Rainer, a Philly singer-songwriter with a gentle, emotive voice and a powerful sincerity. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N 2nd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Bryce Woodcock

Hurry Record Release Show at Everybody Hits May 6

This evening at Everybody Hits locals Hurry will be celebrating the release of their new LP Guided Meditation, out now via Lame-O-Records. The positive reviews have already started coming in for the album, and are well-deserved. The project has come a long way from Matt Scottoline’s bedroom (probably?) to a tight and polished trio with 2 LPs under the belt. The group is filled out by the DeCarolis duo of Rob (ex-Univox) and Joe (Psychic Teens), who play drums and bass respectively. Markedly more produced, Guided Meditation drops a lot of the fuzz for nimble lead guitar lines and shifts in dynamics. Not to say there isn’t still a bunch of crunchy guitars, because there are, but the range of Scottoline’s songwriting and the bands attention to detail are more apparent on this latest batch of recordings. Fans of Teenage Fanclub will still dig this album, but so will fans of Brian Wilson. The guys from Hurry also recruited a bunch of friend’s to come along for the ride tonight, which includes Telepathic, Fake Problems frontman Chris Farren, and Cave People. Everybody Hits, 529 W Girard Ave., 8:30pm, $5, All Ages - Adam G.

New Tracks: "Take That" & "The Fritz" - CRUISR

Ugh...this weather is shit! But we do have two new tracks from indie-pop faves CRUISR. The fresh and so clean single, "Take That," has the bounce and groove that will find it in someone's soundtrack. And some might remember "The Fritz" from the days when CRUISR still had an "e". Nice to see it making a return!
