New Track: "JOBS" - Slaughter Beach, Dog

Slaughter Beach, Dog (Jake Ewald of Modern Baseball) has released a new track “JOBS.” The song continues a tradition of lyrical depth to explain life’s ongoing conundrums. The ponderous wordplay wraps around your head touching on employment, love, religion, etc. on the continuous existential journey. Though consciously contemplative, the single doesn’t retain an overly heavy feel, letting the lyrics stir without holding you down. (Photo by Jessica Flynn)


Son Step Opening for Sinkane at JB's Nov. 10

Son Step is a group that pushes the expectations of convention, with a sound that is a refined, tight unit. In this way, the songs offer a glimpse of cleansing clarity, while simultaneously offering a new perspective, blending the unfamiliar within a stable setting. The instrumental energy is fluid, undeniably dynamic, and measured to precision. With a freshly cooked batch of sonic treats coming out of the oven this evening at Johnny Brenda’s, the band expands the musical palette. Marrying sleek R&B while inserting snippets of rock, Steven A. Clark, whoreleased The Lonely Roller a couple months back, bridges the divide between the persistent, percussion-filled, funky, free-jazz, wide-reaching, universal sound of Sinkane, a.k.a. Ahmed Gallab. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 8pm, $12, 21+ - Michael Colavita

New Music Video: "Badvertise" - Dr. Dog

Dr. Dog’s creative collaboration with Pig Iron Theatre Company, Swamp Is On, was an oddly charming extraterrestrial experience. While we await word on a new album, this music video for “Badvertise,” takes a humorous spin on infomercial culture. The costumes are reminiscent of the Beastie Boys's “Intergalactic,” showcasing a playful demeanor while transmitting a catchy song through the scope of another space. The video was directed by Ilan Bachrach and Josh Higgason.
