New Taiwan Housing Project LP Available for Streaming

Spellbinding, noisy, experimental, unfiltered rock that resonates and lingers, Veblen Death Mask, the new album from Taiwan Housing Project, will be officially released tomorrow via Kill Rock Stars, but you can currently stream it in full over at Noisey. The album may feel chaotic at first; however, those non-traditional instrumental combinations create an engaging unpredictability, while still capturing pop sensibilities amid the heavy churning undertow. Catch Taiwan Housing Project’s record release show this Saturday, May 6 at Johnny Brenda's with Igneous Eyes and ESCAPE-ISM!

New Track: "Sameness" - Small Circle

The Philly quartet of Marissa D’Elia, Sean Hallock (Rozwell Kid), and Sorority Noise members Adam Ackerman and Cameron Boucher, a.k.a. Small Circle, originally released their debut EP Melatonin roughly one year ago. The band is set to reissue a remastered version on May 5 via Flower Girl Records. The updated album also includes an additional song called “Sameness.” The track floats in a pensively peaceful but melancholy daydream; it's soothing but sensitively emotive.


New Music Video: "The Fire" - Madalean Gauze

Madalean Gauze will welcome her latest EP Cool and Fun with a release show at Johnny Brenda’s on Friday, July 21 that will also includes American Trappist and Haunted Homes. Its first single, “The Fire,” finds tumultuous guitar and the compound, rhythmic stomp, creating an eerie, impending sense of danger. Her haunting vocals with creepy keystrokes add to the ominous outlook. Shot at PhilaMOCA, the video by Philly's own Bob Sweeney injects found elements amid dancing footage and nostalgic filters to lock in on that mysterious feeling of the strange.

Debut Kings of Freon EP Available for Streaming & Download

Step into the kitchen with See, There’s Your Problem, the new EP from Kings of Freon. Playing off goofy exuberance from its radio advertisement opening, the songs that follow exude a melodic control but quick-paced smoothness. Then, “Plug It In,” hits with a yearning desperation, a departure from the tunneling rhythm that returns on “(Take Off Your) Fridge Door”. It's solid indie-punk with lots of humor.

The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Blubird

Inspired to make music by Philly’s robust DIY scene, the youthful band, Blubird, which is made of Alex Black Bessen (drums, vocals, guitar), Erez Potok-Holmes (vocals, guitar), Henry Wolgast (guitar, drums), and Jack Correll (bass), is our most recent Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner. The fellas are about to go their separate ways for college, but they still have plans to record/release more music and play a bunch of shows in and out of town. However, before all this goes down, you can learn more about the soon-to-be high school graduates and the band’s brief history HERE.
