Mood Music: Scourge of Ians - "La La"

Though we're still reeling from the heaviness of Sleep's performance last night, we're in need of something just as weighty but at a faster pace. What more perfect a fit than a litte bit of Scourge of Ians, whose consistently perfect balance of classic, raw punk with rhythm oriented post punk offers a nice and needed break from our local saturated music scene. 

They'll be joining Disassturbator (for the final show of their tour!) and Moogwynd on stage tonight at the Kenton Club, so if you're still in the mood later make sure you stop by. It's free!

The Deli Philly's Featured Artist Poll Winner: Miles High

With a moniker born from an episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and a Disco Biscuits show being a pivotal point in the discovery of electronic music for him, producer Miles High has certainly found plenty of inspiration from the City of Brotherly Love. Blending hip-hop beats, influenced by its “golden age,” with modern-day electronica, the emerging local artist assists in demonstrating just how deep and diverse the pool of talent goes in the Philly music community. “Looking to just continue paving a positive path” - Miles High prolifically creates beats, building on his mind-altering catalogue, while working to create a proper showcase for his material in a live setting. Having recently won a heated race in our monthly Featured Artist Poll, we are happy to have a chance to share more info about the up-and-coming producer’s life and work HERE.  


Saturday Night Sounds: Schaus - "Galileo's Song"

 Here we find ourselves, yet again, on a Saturday night. Some of us may be out partying on the town while others might be cozily nestled in their beds. For those of us that prefer a personal party at home or may be looking for some tunes to get them in the mood to party as they're getting ready, we've got a fairly fresh track coming to you from local experimental artist Schaus.

"Galileo's Song" dropped earlier this month and is an artsy, avant-pop track that properly utilizes addiciting synth lines to create a soundscape you can't help but be immersed in. 

Listen to the track below and let it be the energetic addition to your party playlist or the necessary auditory element to your Saturday night chill sesh.

DAN DAN: The band you need to know

If you find yourself caught in some sort of music rut, consider expanding your radar to include the talents of DAN DAN. Our latest Artist of the Month winners are coming up on their one year annviersary of show-playing, making their debut you last Halloween at Slims.

Since then, the local trio have been dishing out heavily synthy, electro-laced instrumental rock that catalyzes deeper thoughts and fevered movements. We're desperately craving more than just the four tracks on their Soundcloud page but until then we can stay satiated on their live performances.

DAN DAN's next unmissable set is actually tomorrow at Valentines, along with Fake Fireplace and Daughter Talk. It's only $5, so be sure to stop by and congratulate them on their poll win and anniversary of band-dom!

Inaugural National Park Feat. American Trappist, Madalean Gauze & More at Bourbon & Branch Oct. 22

National Park is a miniature festival curated by Painted Lady Records in which seven of Philly's own emerging musicians will play a sampling of music that just might put them on the map. This conceptualized event brings together a diverse lineup of singer-songwriters and bands, who otherwise would not likely share a stage together, providing you with a taste of their music catalogue. The inaugural event will be co-headlined by the solo effort from River City Extension's Joe Michelini, American Trappist. Also sharing top billing for this evening will be the genre-bending songwriting of Madalean Gauze, who has made a name for herself locally since releasing her debut EP American War. The showcase will also feature multi-instrumentalist Chet Williams, Modern Television, Muccino, and more. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., 7pm, $10-$15, 21+ - Bill McThrill
