The Trillions to release Superposition. Listen to "1984"

 Richmond is exploding with news of The Trillions impending launch of their new album Superposition. Tracks have been popping up all week on various websites and blogs from Richmond to DC. The Trillions released their debut in 2011 to tons of acclaim and the certainty of critics and fans alike that this would be the next big thing from Richmond. The Trillions could be said to have laid the bedrock for the tons of Richmond garage/psyche/guitar-pop bands that continue to emerge and provides such incredible depth to the scene. Indeed, in the years between releases, members of The Trillions have been directly contributing to other fantastic bands. Not to be outdone by other bands (or even themselves in other bands), The Trillions are finally releasing this new album.

In case you had any doubts, it's fantastic. Balls-to-the-wall fuzz and psychadelia with intricate guitar-work and a relentless energy combining into blissful power-pop.  Check out the track "1984" below, and click on the links to other local blogs and 'zines above. To hear the entire album as soon as you can, head out to Strange Matter, in Richmond, on January 31st for the record release show.  The Trillions will be joined by new-wavey psych-rockers White Laces and mathy indie-rockers Manatree. All for only $5! --Natan Press

Weekend Warrior, January 23 - 25

Ever since Wesley Bunch moved to Philly from Virginia Beach, he’s been finding a whole lotta love for his project Suburban Living. He has also found seasoned bandmates in Michael Cammarata and Chris Radwanski, who were formerly in Night Panther and White Birds together and will be pulling double duty this Saturday night with their new project Spirit Haus. Suburban Living will be celebrating the release of their vibrant self-titled album, and will be playing their first ever Philly headlining set at Bourbon & Branch tonight. They'll be joined by the charismatic Illinois, who will have some new material to share since they recently sent out the mastered recordings for their upcoming release that's on the horizon. Also on the bill is Purples, who just put out some material of their own. There will certainly be a lot of fresh new tunes for your listening pleasure this evening. Bourbon and Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., 8pm, $7-$10 21+ - Bill McThrill

New Suburban Living Album Available for Streaming

With his self-titled debut LP due out next Tuesday, January 27 via PaperCup Music, Virginia transplant Wesley Bunch, a.k.a. Suburban Living, is scheduled to perform at Bourbon & Branch tomorrow night. For those contemplating attending the event, check out this early preview of the new record, and you’re sure to be swayed. With its airy stripped-down unions of synth/guitar/percussion, it’s easy to picture this album getting heavy rotation.

Awkwarium, ghostpal, NoPop, and The Brooklyn What play The Gutter Tonight

After a successful kickstarter campaign, and a seemingly interminable build, the folks at the Mama Coco’s Funky Kitchen (MCFK) collective have finally completed construction on their new studio. To celebrate they’ve put together their second show this month, this time at the Gutter, Brooklyn’s premier bowling alley/venue which isn’t Brooklyn Bowl. The showcase will feature the gleaming psychedelic soul pop of ghostpal, Goodman’s excoriating garage pop (both Deli NYC Artists of the Month) as well as Toot Sweet, NoPop (whom are not to be missed), The Brooklyn What, and Awkwarium. Stream MCFK’s latest compilation below, and catch them tonight (1/23) at the Gutter. -Emilio Herce (@emilioherce) photo cred: Dan Bracaglia


Pig Iron Theatre’s Annual Benefit Cabaret: Pignometry at The Troc Jan. 23

One of Philadelphia's most innovative theatre companys, Pig Iron Theatre, hosts its annual benefit cabaret at The Troc tonight. The theme of the cabaret is Pignometry, or the mathematics of angles and curves, and the illustrious Miss Martha Graham Cracker and a roster of sassy performers, who have connections to the company, will be testing their intellectual, musical, and acrobatic skills. There will be a special silent auction that features items like a membership to the Fairmount Park Conservancy, tickets to Longwood Gardens, and a basket of rum. Johnny Showcase and the Lefty Lucy Cabaret will tantalize with their raucous soul revival and charismatic showmanship, and Unidos de Filadelfia will bring their world beat and Latin soul. The show will also feature performances by the Bearded Ladies Cabaret, Fantasy Grandma, Briand Sanders Junk, and more. Trocadero Theatre, 1003 Arch St., 8pm, $25-$125, 18+ - Bill McThrill
