New Music Video: "The Woman That Loves You" - Japanese Breakfast

Little Big League’s Michelle Zauner has released a new music video, under her solo project Japanese Breakfast, for “The Women That Loves You,” a song found on American Sound. The video connects a series of clips from films such as Chungking Express, La Collectionneuse and Wild Combination: A Portrait of Arthur Russell, interspersed with original backyard footage shot with Cordell Stetson. Ticker-taping lyrics serve as a guide while the snapshots from various scenes illuminate the mood/context.

Dogs on Acid w/The Spirit of the Beehive at Boot & Saddle Feb. 11

After releasing their debut tracks via Ranch Records, local four-piece Dogs on Acid (featuring Peter Helmis, Joe Reinhart and Nick Tazza formerly of Algernon Cadwallader as well as Nate Dionne of Snowing) recently shared “Flushed,” which is one half of their forthcoming 7” via Asian Man Records. The song's tumbling melodic momentum makes it a natural stuck-in-your-head rocker that leaves you wanting more. They'll be headlining Boot & Saddle this evening, which will be their second show in Philly this week, and if you didn't make it to the First Unitarian Church on Monday or did and just couldn't get enough of Dogs on Acid, well, here's your opportunity to check them out in one of the best sounding rooms in Philly. They'll be joined by The Spirit of the Beehive, who play a range of highs and lows finding an unexpected middle ground between soothing hypnotic astral dream-pop and a denser, shoegazing atmosphere, filled with ever volatile stormy instrumentation that lies in waiting. The group's musical outlook inhabits darkly clouded sonic terrain. In its intermediate lighter moments, the clouds soften revealing transitions of calm; however, behind that ray of light lies a persistent unforgiving torrential roar. Whether one prefers the calm or the storm, it’s easy to get sucked in. Also along for the ride are relative pop-punk newcomers Quit, who open a night full of intrigue that promises to catapult you toward the weekend. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8pm, $8, 21+ - Michael Colavita
