They call themselves "folk n' roll" which is a fairly accurate description. The Plain Steel have been around the Hamilton scene for many years now and they are getting ready to release their second full length album. The record is titled "Slow Day In A One Horse Town" which can sometimes be the feelings you get in Hamilton. The folks there know how to party when there is something going on though. This Friday The Plain Steel are throwing their release party at the Casbah. Have a listen to their single "Living Memory" which delicately unveils their folk n' roll sounds complete with a soothing cello and nice guitar licks. Joining them will be the Beach Bats, Local Haunts and Will Gillespie. 5 bucks and doors at 8. - Kris Gies

Dark Blue will drop their sophomore LP, Start Of The World, on November 4, via 12XU.

Forma releases LP 'Physicalist' + performs at The Good Room on 11.02

Brooklyn-based, instrumental electro trio Forma released their third full-length album Physicalist on September 23rd, and are now ready to bring their new, hypnotic sound to the stage. The album contains astonishing soundscapes, mostly carved from synchronized arpeggiators and atmospheric pad sounds.The title track (streaming below) id founded on a loose rhythmic foundation created by drum machines and swelling arpeggiated synths. But it is the organic breath of flute that carries the piece and creates an expansive sonic dimension. Experience Forma live at The Good Room on November 2nd (the show was moved from Market Hotel). - Ashley Muniz


Cheap Dinosaurs Record Release Show at Boot & Saddle Oct. 18

Today, the psych/prog crew of Cheap Dinosaurs unveiled their new album, High Strangeness, and tonight, the quartet creeps into South Philly's Boot & Saddle. The band latest release navigates through a fantastical deep-forest, video-game resonating labyrinth. The pulsating beats ascribed to the combination of heavy yet precise backend-led trails and mysterious synths drive the quest toward its ultimate destination. The optimistic comfort of familiar terrain is temporarily shaken as ominous quaking tones enclose, while one proceeds deeper into the dimly lit terrain. They’ll bridge the gap between the pronounced, punk stomping of Tiny Vices and the intricately explosive, primal, post-hardcore surges of Georgia’s Cinemechanica, whom released a new self-titled album late last month. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8:30pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita
