The Grayces Release Single "Do It To Me"

The October release of The Grayce's full-length album "Westing" is drawing near.  We had the opportunity to get an advanced listen to it this spring, (read the full review here), and this prolonged awareness has only served to make time creep by. Granted, this is an album that makes perfect sense nestled in amongst goblins and all things Halloweenie, but damned if we don't want the rest of Nashville to get the full run of their unapologetic grunge rock. Until then, The Grayces have been keeping their fanbase plied with a steady trickle of shows, videos, and singles, the latest of which it "Do It To Me." Take a listen only if you like it when things get a little wierd.  -Terra James-Jura



New Music Video: "Kites" - Literature

Indie-pop quartet Literature premiered a new music video today, over at Stereogum, for the track "Kites," off their latest full-length album Chorus (Slumberland Records). The kaleidoscopic imagery was directed by Erik Smith. They'll be heading out on an U.S. tour this fall in support of the new LP, and will be making a stop in Philly for a record release celebration on September 15 at Underground Arts with The Drums and Beverly.


New Video: "Always Know" (Live) - Kate Ferencz

Below is a new video of Kate Ferencz performing an unreleased song called "Always Know." It was recorded on August 23, 2014 at Philly DIY space Fort Tender by Taryn Jones for Single Girl, Married Girl Records. Enjoy!


Tiger Dare's inescapable calm

There's something strangely hypnotic about Tiger Dare's sound. It's floating on water, where every song feels like a breath of fresh air - and God knows we need some fresh air in this city.  Their songs feel good for the soul, often building towards wonderfully uplifting crescendos without losing the mellow.  Lost in a sea of reverb, lead vocalist Henry Freedland captures a personal nostalgia with "Morning After Morning" (streaming):  "When he's lonely he's so hopeless/When he's hopeless he's so boring/When he's boring it's just morning after morning".  The songs take the form of soundscapes, and under the distance there is a calm nostalgia to it all. The Brooklyn band's debut EP 'Wires Over, Wired In' has been gathering a fair amount of attention, and CMJ just announced them in the official lineup of the upcoming Music Marathon. - Jake Saunders

Dead Leaf Echo keeps touring + appears on The B-Sides NYC Sessions tonight

Keeping up what can only be described as an impressively relentless touring schedule, Brooklyn’s Dead Leaf Echo are taking a break of sorts to appear on television. You can catch the Premiere of Episode 4 of The B-Sides NYC Sessions featuring the Brooklyn dream pop quartet today (8/28) on NYC Life and anytime after that online here.

Filmed at Littlefield in Brooklyn, the hit cable show features interview by Host Kristen Korvette. Additionally, select music videos are presented that reflect the common sound and vision of our scene. Dead Leaf Echo then will continue their rigorous touring schedule which takes them through Pennsylvania, New York, Boston, Ohio, Milwaukee and Chicago before heading to the west coast for more dates. Their latest EP "true.deep.sleeper" has been getting rave reviews and the band has now begun work on their second full length album. The current 10" EP which is available now on Moon Sounds Records benefits from the sonic touches of Monte Vallier (Weekend, Wax Idols,) and mastering engineer Joe Lambert (Deerhunter, School of Seven Bells). Fellow New Yorkers can catch them live at Pianos on 9/3. - Dave Cromwell
