In the Cut: Jeff Zeigler (Uniform Recording/Valley Exit/Soft Dystopia)

Uniform Recording’s Jeff Zeigler has built an impressive reputation as one of the premier, go-to producers in Philly. His talents have assisted in sculpting critically acclaimed albums for lauded local artists such as The War on Drugs, Kurt Vile, and Nothing just to name a few. Zeigler has also earned praise for his musicianship and collaborative work with indie harpist Mary Lattimore, and this Friday, he plans to release the self-titled debut LP for his latest project, Valley Exit, a solo effort that has expanded to a full band with the additions of Josh Meakim (A Sunny Day in Glasgow, The Fantastic Imagination) on guitar, April Harkanson (Myrrias, Downtown Club), and Steven Urgo (The War on Drugs, Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band). And what has been about a decade-long idea, knocking around in his head, has recently come to fruition. Jeff has started his very own independent record label Soft Dystopia, a name inspired by the works of writer/designer Richard Littler. The label released its first album, Spectra, from dream-pop outfit Myrrias last week, and Zeigler and his band will be holding a joint record release celebration with them tomorrow night at Johnny Brenda’s so you definitely want to hit that. We also have new single from Valley Exit to share with you, called “What Pulls Us Through,” off their forthcoming album, and check out our interview with the man himself, Jeff Zeigler, HERE! 

Debut So Totally Album Available for Streaming & Download

So Totally instantly won our hearts over with their debut single, "Zoetrope". And after taking a listen to their first album, a cheap close-up of heaven, we can't help but get excited about what the future holds for this fledgling shoegaze/indie-rock quartet. The band requested us to "play it loud and enjoy." Gladly! 

New Track: "FOAM" - Sun Airway

Sun Airway delighted listeners with their 2010 debut LP Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier (Dead Oceans), so much so that it earned them The Deli Philly's Artist of the Year honors. However, after their 2012 follow-up Soft Fall (Dead Oceans), from our talks with frontman Jon Barthmus, it sounded like he was ready to leave behind the life of a struggling musician on the road for a simpler one at home, after all he had already spent years fronting his previous band Vagrant Records' The A-Sides. Thankfully, it didn't mean that he completely stopped recording music. Though Barthmus would now prefer Sun Airway to be strictly a studio project, we are very excited to hear the first single, "FOAM" (below), from its upcoming release Heraldic Black Cherry, which is currently scheduled to be self-released early next year.
