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

Marie & The Moans are bringing their eccentric songwriting to Kung Fu Necktie this Sunday, opening for No Joy and Creepers, and prodding your eardrums with a little musical unconventionality. The group exhibits an almost willful rejection of traditional or intuitive melody structure, yet make no concessions in accessibility. Percussion clatters and stumbles, while an innumerable amount of electronic tones bump and fall across each other, giving an overall impression of narrowly maintained order, as if the very compositions can’t be contained by their recordings. Singer Bridget Boylan’s stoic voice stitches at the seams of disorder, and lends a contrasting elegance to the music, which also serves as an orientating force that guides you through each manically tangled tune. Show up early to catch these Philly locals before ‘gazing out on the ethereal wings of No Joy. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Bryce Woodcock

It’s been about 4 years now since we first sat down for an interview with Lushlife, a.k.a. Raj Haldar. And with the success of his latest LP Ritualized and mutually busy schedules, it took a long string of emails and rescheduling to finally find time to sit down for a chat. We managed to beat out the dinner rush at South Philly’s Khmer Kitchen and snagged a table for a tasty traditional Cambodian meal, drinks, and whole lotta catchin’ up. Come dive into our discussion about Lush’s collaborative work with production trio CSLSX, RitualizedThe Deli Philly’s March Record of the Month, and find out what’s on the horizon for the rising emcee/producer as we pick his brain and get a little silly HERE.

Psych-pop purveyors Grubby Little Hands have released their new album Garden Party to the mases via Lefse/Chill Mega Chill. The group was started by multi-instrumentalists Donnie Felton and Brian Hall, after meeting in college while studying music composition and theory. The duo released two previous albums, Imaginary Friends (2009) and The Grass Grew Around Our Feet (2012), and now with their latest record, Felton and Hall have been joined by guitarist Joseph Primavera and drummer Chad Brown to help fill out their hazy, sedative-pop sound. You can help Grubby Little Hands celebrate the arrival of Garden Party this evening at Johnny Brenda's, where they'll be joined by labelmate Shelf Life and Cold Foamers, who dropped their new album, Musketball, earlier this year. So take a dab & get lost in the sonics of the night. Johnny Brenda's, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman
