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

Republic Records is scheduled to release Act One, the debut full-length album from Marian Hill, on June 24. They brought a special performance of “One Time” to The Wild Honey Pie Presents On The Mountain. With a soulful, sultry, simmering start, the song shifts upward, set up by a sax smoothly snapping your ears and hips into submission with that ever-augmenting electro-beat.

Philly emcee Ryshon Jones shares that his forthcoming album You're Safe Now is influenced by “the feeling of allowing yourself to get lost to get in touch with your inner world, and learning the cycle of the ups and downs most of us face but never tell anyone.” He's had a lot of time to contemplate it over the two years that he's been working on the record. Take a listen below to his latest single from the album, called "Joymance," featuring D.C. songbird Zeroni.

May 13, the release date for Tired of Tomorrow (Relapse Records) is rapidly approaching. And while we wait for it to drop, Nothing has issued another single, “The Dead Are Dumb,” which you may recognized from the second episode of Nothing's documentary. The song stews in a reserved, reflective, somber state, slowly sinking into the senses. The band’s hometown record release show will be held at Union Transfer on Friday, July 8 with additional support from Citizen and Culture Abuse, as well as Mary Lattimore & Jeff Zeigler.
