Soft Idiot

New Soft Idiot EP Available for Streaming & Download

Byrrie is the latest EP from Philly singer-songwriter Justin Roth, a.k.a. Soft Idiot. Intimately enchanting, nostalgic, bedroom-folk tales retain a sense of endearing beauty and warmth. However, the fractured fragility of a relationship hangs in the air. Soft Idiot is slated to perform at Ortlieb’s on Sunday, September 1, with Dead Neighbors and all boy/all girl.

New Soft Idiot LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

In the Long Light of the Failing Sun (Cicada Choir), the new album from Justin Roth-led Soft Idiot, officially arrived today. Introspective, evaluating folk exuberantly springs forward. Gently swaying or dashing in an energetic rush, there’s a reassuring honesty. Soft Idiot will be co-hosting a dual record release show with Screamcloud on Friday, February 8 at The Conservatory, where they'll be supported by Dan Clifford and High Noon.

Rain Wins Another Year!, the new album from Soft Idiot, recently arrived, and is available on cassette courtesy of Cheap Plastic Records. Saturated in emotive melodies, the record unites a series of diary-styled narratives. Invited into one's personal space, these songs exude an effervescent warmth, while exposing an endearing interior. That pleasure and pain principle strewn across a lo-fi, folk platform is a domain that you’ll explore and escape within.

New Lonely Ghost & Soft Idiot Split EP Available for Streaming & Download

Lonely Ghost and Soft Idiot have paired up to released the aptly titled split EP Lonely/Idiot. “Sleep Well” by Lonely Ghost, a.k.a. Kenny Forrester, melodically rattles in a shoegazing absorption. Shifting into a more tranquil hypnotic atmosphere, “We Felt Safe” drifts in subtle emotives. “Eclipse Song” and “Walk,” the contributions from Justin Roth, a.k.a. Soft Idiot, swim in a jangly folk setting (with “Walk” venturing into a psych-rock/noise realm), allowing the lyrical proximity to remain in focus. Soft Idiot is slated to appear on a bill with Mavis The Dog and Cabbage at Ortleib's on Wednesday, September 27.
