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

Oblio, the new album from experimental lo-fi trio Old Maybe, was released yesterday via local label Apollonian Sound, and tonight, they celebrate with a performance at Space 1026. The record jars with its bouts of fits and starts. It rushes at you, then peels off, focusing on the current state of personal affairs, and then sinks into a balance of chaos and funk. Dive into the delightful disorder. Old Maybe will be joined by the similarly-minded, rousing experimentation of Hermit Thrushes, whose new LP Potsherd Gold Meadow is a set of quick-bursting tracks that are loaded with momentary, comforting bells and whistles. A pair of New York-based psych-rock outfits in Jepeto Solutions and Cloud Becomes Your Hand, whom also has a new album, Rest In Fleas, in tow, complete this All Mutable presented billing. Space 1026 (1026 Arch St.), 8pm, $7, All Ages - Michael Colavita

With their third full-length album NERVE (SRA Records) hot and fresh off the press, Philly post-punk trio Psychic Teens is poised to inject this city’s music scene with a nourishing dose of melodic gloom. The new LP continues in the same vein of early 80's goth rock that put them on the radar of many prestigious publications. Down to lead singer Larry Ragone’s deep vocal timbre, the band obviously has a high opinion of the dark and brooding stylings of Bauhaus, but in a modish contemporary twist, they add the fluid textural blend of shoegaze to the instrumentation. You can catch Psychic Teens divvying out the hot rocks this Saturday at Johnny Brenda’s with Vivatape, the new wave noir band from an 80's interpretation of a dystopian future, and Mt. Billions, who walk the line between Wooden Shjips-style psychedelic noise rock and True Widow stoner drone. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 Frankford Ave, 8pm, $10, 21+ - Bryce Woodcock

The soothing, entrapping vocals of former Philly native Meg Baird linger, pulling you through the beautiful haze of San Francisco psych-folk outfit Heron Oblivion. The surrounding instrumentation gently stirs as the vocals waft. Then, the shapes begin to shift, and the heaviness emerges as the musical demons are let out of their confines, unleashing the fury. Tonight, Boot & Saddle hosts a sold-out show, which also features the deep entrenching psych-rock explorations of Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band. Forsyth and company bob and weave through a labyrinth of long-distance riffs and grooves, sending you into a vortex that you’ll happily survey. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8:30pm, $12 (Sold Out), 21+ - Michael Colavita

Produced by Jake Ewald (Modern Baseball/Slaughter Beach, Dog) and released via Honest Face Records, Career Fair, the new EP from the trio of Weller, bottles a transferable upbeat vibe, while simultaneously hitting on a reeled-in personal level. That balance of unfiltered honesty with an infectious opening up of musicality catches your ears and won’t let go.

Hushed, seductive vocals coast along the sonic streets lined with percussion and keys in Work Drugs's new single, “Roll”. The sensual beacon of saxophone guides with its weaving, smooth sound as the song’s mysterious-night aesthetic fits neatly into the recently warmer climate. Work Drugs will be performing next in Philly on Saturday, June 11 at Boot & Saddle with Church Girls.

It's been nearly six years since we've heard any new music from local metal keytar maestro Matt Garfield, a.k.a. Mose Giganticus. Well, Garfield is back (on drums), and has teamed up with Red Planet producer Joe Smiley (on guitar). Check out the duo's beautifully lit music video for "We Are One"! Directed by Christopher Kayfield and Garfield, the heavy post-rock track is the follow-up to 2010's Gift Horse (which was released via Relapse Records), and is the first from the band's new ongoing digital Singles Series.
