Two Inch Astronaut brings fresh sounds to 90s alternative

Two Inch Astronaut is an admirable attempt to pick up where 90s alternative left off. Twangy, out of tune, distortion heavy guitars mash against open hi-hat hits and restrained bass lines harkening back to the instrumental sounds of early Modest Mouse and Fugazi.  Cutting through the mish mash are somber, angsty vocals, of the Built to Spill variety.

While most of the big 90s bands have since broken up or moved on to new sounds, Two Inch Astronaut hopes to prove that 90s music is still relevant, and they are doing a fine job. 

Check out Two Inch Astronaut February 3rd at Black Cat.

New Joy Again EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Joy Again celebrates their freshly released EP with a show this evening at PhilaMOCA. Available via Never Grow Up Records, the album hovers between its succinctly woven instrumental threads and its unassuming lo-fi inflections. An instant gravitational pull is the result, as the close connection of relaxed but reverberating vocals combine with the subtly strong steer of layered instrumentation, sparking fine grooves. It’s a fine example of the depths and power of simplicity. Ian Sweet, Acid Dad, and Shelf Life complete tonight’s lineup presented by Smilin’ Ambassador.

New Track: "Do It (In Your Mind)" - Louie Louie

The quartet of Louie Louie is slated as part of a three-pronged (but sold out) show with Sheer Mag and Amanda X tonight at Boot & Saddle that will benefit New Sanctuary Philadelphia. Their latest single, “Do It (In Your Mind),” breaks through with a humorous, primal growl before a smooth guitar lick paves the way for assertive vocals to emerge backed by fanned-out harmonies. The band’s debut LP, Friend of a Stranger, is scheduled for release on February 10 via Philly's own Born Losers, and you can celebrate it with them that evening at PhilaMOCA.
