The Transcendental No-wave Sludge of Shimmer at Baird Mansion Atrium Dec. 3

Philadelphia-based booking collective All Mutable continue to organize noteworthy shows in town, and this weekend’s event is no exception to this trend. Shimmer’s lineup consists of four artists who are each arriving from projects that have become distinguished for their potent blends of musical precision and tonal experimentation. Ani and Nina perform together in Palberta, Paco plays in Big Neck Police and releases solo material under the moniker The Cradle, and Simon plays in Cloud Becomes Your Hand and Tredici Bacci (who recently toured with Gary Wilson as his backing band). The resulting sound is something akin to transcendental no-wave sludge swinging on a pendulum. Find out for yourself what will come of this rare melding of talent on tonight at Baird Mansion Atrium, where they’ll be performing with Philly artists Ursula, Deflector, and Boston-based Pucker Up. Baird Mansion Atrium, (Please contact of the acts or venue for more info.), 7pm, $8, All Ages - Josh Kelly

Boketto the Wolf Brings Debut EP to P.A.s Lounge on 12/9

Filled with highly charged emotional content, a fully utilized dynamic range, and engaging, vocal melodies from Julia Maree, Boston-based folk-rockers Boketto the Wolf ensure that their formidable debut EP, Sleepless, lives up to its title.  Leading with its stand-out track, "Float Back to Me", which revitalizes the lost art of the 6/8 power ballad, Sleepless is a neatly packaged, 5-track album that perfectly sums up the reach and character of the band.  This haunting debut ensures that you will be "floating back" to it time and time again.  Catch Boketto the Wolf, joined by Drew Angus, Alternate Weekends, and The Silent Wild at P.A.s Lounge on Saturday, 12/9. -Brian Varneke

 

 

Natural Velvet offers luscious layers of fuzzy post-punk

"Love is Love/Alien and Strange" croons Baltimore-based Natural Velvet on their latest single, and though the band's sound may be a bit alien and strange itself, we're certainly in love. A post-punk act with a serious dash of psych and noise vibes, Natural Velvet invites listeners down a fuzzy, swirling, spacey, rabit-hole freak out with its thick instrumentals and dark vocals. Check them out for yourself, and stream Natural Velvet's "Love is Love" below. - Olivia Sisinni 

Noah Kittinger releases new EP "Bloom"

Noah Kittinger has made a name for himself by crafting complexly textured music with a minimalist structure, and his lastest release, Bloom, further refines that sonic path. Showcasing his keen sense of depth and darkness, the EP prominently features Kittenger's hazy, haunting vocals, which are contrasted against echo-y beats that almost feel as if they edge toward the void. It's 7-tracks worth of layers to peel, and single N.Y.E. (streaming below) is a good place to start. - Olivia Sisinni

Serengeti "Boy"

Serengeti and Sicker Man have released a video for their new single “Boy”. The track comes from their new album, Doctor My Own Patience, which is due out on December 16th via Graveface Records. You can preorder the album here.
