Debut Buddie EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Buddie, the fuzzed-out Philly powerpop project of Dan Forest, just dropped its debut EP Change of Scenery. The origins of the songs began while Forest was employed as a conservation biologist in Bioko (a small island in Equatorial Guinea, Central Africa), and have been fleshed out in the Grays Ferry studio of Keith Abrams (Pine Barons, Tremellow), who is responsible for mixing the album. The cassette is now available via Super Wimpy Punch, and the band will be rockin' the label's South Philly headquarters tomorrow evening to celebrate its arrival. They'll also be joined by Qwark, Swim Camp, and Vermont's Yellowfront.

City of Sound reach for the rafters on anthemic "The Madhouse," perform at El Cid on 1/11

City of Sound reach for as far as they possibly can on "The Madhouse." The North Hollywood trio's anthemic, piano-driven sweep affects the senses with a victorious sense of triumph, as lead singer Jordan Wright elevates his vocals to operatic levels with a warm tenor. True to their grand band name, there's not a moment throughout "Madhouse" where we feel like they're about to soften their delivery. Every moment in this towering power ballad shines with blinding brightness, as they make their musical ambitions show with a clear intent. 

"The Madhouse" is featured on City of Sound's latest EP, Silent Empire I, the first in a trio of EP's that will culminate into a conceptual full-length recording. Catch their headlining release show set tomorrow, January 11, at El Cid. Juan Rodríguez


Sportsfan - "Jean Jacket Rock" hittin' Horseshoe 01.12

Sportsfan call themselves “jean jacket rock” which means I have to listen to ‘em immediately. Their latest release was a 3 song EP titled “Holy Hell”. These tracks are solid rock n roll tunes reminiscent of American heartland rock such as Tom Petty or Mellancamp but with a more current indie-pop attitude. A good mix of jangle and fuzz. They will be supporting Fade Awaays at their EP Release Party on January 12th at the Horseshoe Tavern along with Maybelleen and Lovers Touch. – Kris Gies
