Saturday Night Sounds: Astro Tan - "HYFY"

Fusing jazz, psych and r&b are what Astro Tan are masters at doing and their new single, "HYFY," further proves it.

"HYFY" premiered on Impose this last Thursday and what the track stands for (presumably "hell yeah, fuck yeah") is exactly the excitment it brings. Jazzy tendencies playfully circle around distorted guitars and an intriguing drum beat, while party-like lyrics bring a lighthearted air to the track. 

The trio just took off for a West Coast tour and return September 4 for a show at Rontoms, but let "HYFY" be your hell yeah, fuck yeah anthem as this Saturday night cools down. 





The Empty and Their Full Indie-tronic Sound

Our latest winners of our AOTM poll, the Empty, produce a sound that is anything but musically void. The trio, comprised of Bobby Dezfulli, Sean Dant and Jacob Schmitt, have crafted their distinct balance between mood, melody and rhythm over the last 10 years that they've been in Portland's music scene.

Reverberated guitars, analog synths and beat machines lay the foundation for spurts of fuzzier vocal tones that all come together to create a mesh of indie, electronica and rock that is pleasurable to the ears both in headphones and live. 

The Empty have already dropped a few tracks (and a couple accompanying music videos) from their upcoming post-summer release, which will be acting as the followup to their Lost Levels album from 2014. 

Dive into our most recent winners and peak into our Fall release with "Inside Edition" below. Congrats on the win, guys!





Weekend Warrior, Aug. 19-21

Treat Y’r Self Fest returns to PhilaMOCA this Saturday for its second year. The benefit for the annual March to End Rape Culture (co-presented with Pussy Division) will be hosting a day of rad activities to create a safe, inclusive space that is accessible for all ages. Throughout the day and into the evening, you’ll find local favorites like Dreambook, Swanning, and Motherwhore coming together with artist from all over the country to donate their talents to help unify a community for an important cause. Punk legend Alice Bag (of The Bags) will be headlining the music showcase with a new album in tow! And for the first time, Treat Y’r Self Fest will be screening a documentary; Stories From the She Punks was directed by Helen Reddington (The Chefs) and Gina Birch (The Raincoats), and it chronicles “stories of women musicians from the punk-inspired bands of the 70s.” Music critic and author Jenn Pelly will be introducing the film. Kevin Attics (Mercury Girls, Literature) will also be spinning between sets, and Samantha Gurry will be creating some dope hand-cut animated visuals. So come out & TREAT Y’R SELF!

Broken Beak Record Release Show at PhilaMOCA Aug. 19

Melancholy and dissonance merge with post-punk rhythms and an almost folk sense of lyricism to produce songs that grab you by the scruff of your neck and force you to listen. There is an honesty and abrasion that are both beautiful and haunting, which endures from the opening acoustic plucks and kitchen-sink noises to fading strums and a grinding halt on Broken Beak’s new release, Some Nerve. Beau Brynes, along with bandmates Brendan Lukens (Modern Baseball), Evan Clark Moorehead (Weller), and Jeff Malt, will be celebrating its release tonight at PhilaMOCA, as part of their 2016 summer tour. They’ll be joined by Portland, OR outfits Blowout, a powerhouse of sound and fury, and Walter etc., a folk-punk collective that is not afraid to have fun, and drag you kicking and screaming along. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 7pm, $8, All Ages - Keith Kelley





Sludgy noise-rockers bbigpigg serve up "Din-Din" and play Aviv 8/19

Exploding out of the Brooklyn scene with the force of a too ripe pustule, noise rockers bbigpigg bring you Din-Din, a four track EP with more than enough greasy goodness to sink your teeth into. Kicking off with "Chowtime," the EP delivers fat, tasty basslines coupled with manic vocals that seem to edge toward gut-wrenching howls. The result is deliciously anarchic weirdo rock. While a growling bass belches leads and drives the songs forward, guitars rip through Din-Din with the squealing of wounded animals, freed to hunt out vociferous tones. Any way you carve it up, bbigpigg is septic sewer punk guaranteed to leave you feeling grimy. Check out Din-Din here, listen to the track below and catch them live in all their maw-chomping majesty at Aviv on 8/19 with Multicult, Couch Slut, Human Shapes and Dead Tenants.-Olivia Sisinni
