One of the Bestest Release Dates Ever in Philly!

One of the Bestest Release Dates Ever in Philly!

Today is proof of how amazing the Philly music scene is doing right now. Where else can you get such a talented and diverse group of artists releasing their albums on the same day? It’s certainly a date that has been circled on our calendars. (Ha…do people actually use paper calendars anymore?) You already know that Sun Airway’s Nocturne of Exploded Crystal Chandelier is out today via Dead Oceans (check out our interview with Jon Barthmus for Where Is My Mind? here). But if infectiously catchy, lo-fi indie pop isn’t your thing (anymore) and you just simply want to rock, then Purling HissPublic Service Announcement via Woodsist has plenty of those nasty psychedelic blues guitar riffs full of angst and rage that you’ve been hoping to snap the indie music scene out of its chillness. Maybe you are looking for some experimental Americana with Dylan-esque vocals and verses. The War on Drugs will make you surrender to the hallucinogenic haze of their latest EP Future Weather via Secretly Canadian. And if you are looking to rock your soul with a little funk and hip hop on the positive tip, then Kuf Knotz brings his BoomBox Logic to the masses via Mad Dragon. While it’s nice to see record labels scooping up our local talent, our love goes out to those true indie artists who dig into their own pockets to share their music with us. That is why we are proud to be presenting the CD release party for Grimace Federation’s On Velvet this Friday, Oct. 29 at JB’s, but if you just can’t wait that long, then contact them here. I’m sure that they’d be glad to get you a copy. Go out and buy any or all of these albums today! Your ears will thank you. - The Deli Staff
