New Track: "The Mirror" - Field Mouse

Brooklyn/Philly outfit Field Mouse recently announced that it will be releasing a new LP, titled Episodic, due out August 5 via Topshelf Records. The album was produced by Joe Reihart (Hop Along) of Headroom Philly and features guest appearances from Allison Crutchfield (Swearin'), Sadie Dupuis (Speedy Ortiz), and Joseph D'Agostino (Cymbals Eats Guitars). Take a listen to the record's fiery first single, "The Mirror" (below), which premiered over at NPR. Frontwoman Rachel Browne describes it as one of the album's "dissolution-of-relationship" songs.

The Writing Squares Opening for NYMPH at Everybody Hits June 5

Hard-churning, covering large expanse, pushing the cosmic pedal to the floor, and hitting an array of spaces, The Writhing Squares' sonic shape is an interesting one. Stepping into Everybody Hits this evening, the duo fuses psych and free jazz in a fuzzy, deep-diving union. Finding rhythmic footing while integrating textured openings, it’s a world that’s accessible yet adventurous. Tonight’s show also features the twisting, territorial, out-there jams of Igneous Eyes and the enchanting psych/shoegazing daydream of Myrrias. The joyous, wandering jazz-psych combination of Brooklyn’s NYMPH completes this headie night. Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 8:30pm, All Ages - Michael Colavita

The Sundrop Music & Arts Festival's All-Day Block Party at The Fire June 4

The sixth annual Sundrop Music and Arts Festival is centered around the all-day block party happening today outside The Fire with 13 musical acts, 30+ food & craft vendors, a photo booth, and more. I am very excited to see The Original Crooks and Nannies, who was The Deli Philly's April Record of the Month and the most recent featured artists in our In the Cut interview series. They'll be pre-empted by the lovely, ethereal electropop sounds of Little Strike, a.k.a. Tamar Dart, and indie rockers The Mellowell. Headlining the outdoor stage will be local area indie stalwarts Illinois, and you'll also find the bluesy psych rock of power trio Ill Fated Natives helping to welcome the sun drop into the evening festivities. Looks like the forecasted rain will be holding off so come out and enjoy the day! The Sundrop Music and Arts Festival, Leithgow St. & Girard Ave., 12pm - 9:30pm, Free, All Ages - H.M. Kauffman 


Weekend Warrior, June 3 - 5

Tonight at Union Transfer will be Connor Barwin’s third annual MTWB Benefit Concert. The show, which has hosted buzz bands like Mac Demarco and Kurt Vile in the past, has one of its strongest line-ups this year, which includes Philly’s own Hop Along and Waxahatchee. Barwin, who recently signed a new six-year deal with the Eagles, has been a presence both in the local music and parks & recreations scenes since coming to Philly. He befriended R5 Productions’ Sean Agnew, and has cultivated a super positive event. Each year, Barwin has upped his game for the concert, and this year is no exception. There will also be special guest performers this evening (like Blue Note artist Ryan Anthony Massaro ;-). Every dollar that is raised at the show - both from tickets and bar sales - will be matched by MTWB and donated to a new project in Philadelphia. You can get cheap tix or ball-out for an opportunity to drink and schmooze with some Eagles, but remember it’s all for a great cause. Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St., 7:30pm, $5 - $300, All Ages - Adam G.
