New mewithoutYou Live LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The cathartic, communal nature of a band clicking on all cylinders in step with a hometown crowd has the makings of an excellent album. [A-->B] Live captures the complete performance from mewithoutYou on November 26th of last year at the TLA, as part of the 15 Year Anniversary Tour of their debut album. Embrace the undeniable energy and intricacies of the group as the power of their live performance is documented. The album is being released in conjunction with a concert documentary available via Arsenal Mediaworks.


STRLING is the newly forming “Moody Pop” duo of Alex Markis and Jake Ishler. Last week they released their debut single, “Cool”.

You can catch STRLING at Cobra Lounge on July 13th with Staller West, Jack Loris, and States & Capitals.


YL & Roper Williams carry the torch with new album

There’s a new dynasty of artists that have emerged in the 2010’s that seem determined to carry the torch of “old school”, but various cities and artists have different interpretations about what constitutes “old school”. Mick Jenkins and Chance the Rapper have reinvented the soulful creations of Chicago, and YG fuses together a g-funk persona with modern day west-coast swagger. With YL & Roper Williams’ album friendofafriend, the same boom-bap approach that made Joey BadA$$ so popular is once again reinvented. This is not just another hip-hop album that derives its personality from New York’s history as rap’s epicenter; instead the thread of classic drum samples and RZA-styled beats has been pulled until it’s almost unrecognizable. Nocturnal and abstract, yet completely familiar, friendofafriend deals with common anxieties in a straightforward and intimate fashion. The machinations of the day-to-day are refracted through YL’s subtle wordplay that give the world of this album a personal feel. The ending “birdsfly” sounds especially poignant as uplifting choirs carry the verses with triumph. Together Roper Williams and YL have successfully carried the torch and altered east-coast tropes with a thoroughly enjoyable album. You can listen to friendofafriend in its entirety below.  -Tucker Pennington


New Track: "My Idea" - Rabbits to Riches

Produced by Uniform Recording's Jeff Zeigler, Rabbits to Riches has a new EP, titled My Idea. A backend bounce is coupled with Brigitte Benecke’s relaxed yet emotively-resonating vocals on the band's title track. Things appear to be coming to a head. A decision needs to made, but the pleasant melody suggests that a hopeful delay may be in order. The Philly trio will be holding its record release show this Saturday, July 14 at Space 1026, supported by Zeigler, Emily Bate, and Cora Sone.
