Fast times and cheap thrills, tonight at the Dive - get some Horizontal Action compliments of local garage punk Jonny Snot!

Yellow Humphrey Record Release Party at JB’s April 29

With sweeping snare and banjo, Yellow Humphrey’s songs are charmers with warm vocals and even warmer melodies. At last releasing their debut LP Featherweights, Yellow Humphrey’s current creative efforts morphed into a collective of 15 or so like-minded locals. Led by the songwriting and soothing, mellifluous vocals of Gretchen Lohse, the band features a core of seasoned Philly music community vets in Stephen Quaranta (Paper Masques, ex-Zelda Pinwheel), Rick Flom (National Eye), Alec Meltzer (Papertrees, Summer Fiction), bassist Dave Barbaree (Paper Masques, Papertrees) and multi-instrumentalist Naeemah Maddox while compiling on the recordings the musical talents and instrumentation of Dave Hartley (Nightlands, The War on Drugs), Jonas Osterele (ex-the Teeth, Flashy Python), and many more. From delicate viola to bending licks of banjo, the understated instrumental arrangements makes songs like “Ursa Ultra” and the album’s title track feel earnest, while “Shakey Ride” render’s Yellow Humphrey’s Gretchen Lohse into indie starlet Zooey Deschanel’s vocal doppelganger, yet with more finesse and strength. These tunes are nostalgic, like Whitman or a front porch, and filled to the brim with a folky romance. Get swept away by Yellow Humphrey tonight at Johnny Brenda’s and helping to celebrate this special occasion is Featherweight’s producer Nick Krill (Spinto Band) with Mike Quinn (And the Moneynotes, The Sw!ms) performing as Young Nick Krill and Magic Mike. Eliza Hardy-Jones (Buried Beds, The Mural and the Mint) will also be adding her always charming vocals. It’s a packed house of local talent so it should certainly be a nice place to settle down for the evening. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Dianca Potts
