Line Leader





Weekend Warrior, February 1 - 3

In stark contrast to the frigid force that currently occupies the outdoors, the garage-surf quartet of Blushed creates an inviting, somewhat humid, melodic atmosphere – one that sinks into your skin like the breeze off the water as the temperature rises. There’s a tranquilizing yet combustible nature, reminding you that the mesmerizing glow of the candlelight is capable of causing serious damage at any moment. Tonight at the Music Ward, they’ll be joined by the garage-psych torrent of Line Leader. Welding emotively-laced lyrics and also exhibiting a carefree side, Canine 10 is enthusiastically engaging, while the tumultuous, jangly-emotive, surf-rock haze of Asbury Park trio Dentist completes this lineup.

New Line Leader LP Available for Streaming & Download

Wilt, the freshly released LP from Line Leader, rattles the sonic cage. Produced by Kevin Brusha, the band cultivates an unabashed, cosmic-transmitted series of songs. Purposely jarring as the menacing, musical torrent takes on the obstacles lying within its path, a Tasmanian devil of unified sound ravages your being. Line Leader unapologetically melds the noise of raw material with a distinct, melodic core. (Photo by Stavi Xinou)





New Track: "Bubblegum" - Line Leader

Below is a new lo-fi, garage-pop ditty from Line Leader called "Bubblegum". The warm, breezy melody harkens to a simpler time, while the lyrics hint at a shadowier tale. Relationships get complicated. 





New Video: NEST FEST 2 (Documentary)

Documentary filmmaker Matthew Yeandel recently shared his latest project with co-conspirators Ben Cohen and Deanna Brown - Bahama Jeff Productions. Nest Fest 2 captures the gritty, creative and supportive nature of Philly DIY space The Nest by taking us into their now annual blow out. You'll find local artists Line Leader, RFA, Husky Bundles, and many others sharing their music and experiences. House resident and fest co-organizer Joey eloquently reveals, "I want people to come here and see what we do, and I want it to influence them enough to a point where they feel genuinely impacted." Much love to The Nest and the rest of Philly's DIY community for helping to make our music scene so rad! (Photo by Lina Xinos)





"Krispy Kareem and Chill" at Venue Boy Nov. 22

Join Krispy Kareem, Gingerlys, Old Maybe, and Line Leader for a Sunday Fun Day show at Venue Boy. Krispy Kareem will bring their wide-ranging sound that spans from chugging folk-pop inspired rippers to emo-tinged pop-punk anthems - and sometimes both within the same song. The band has a talent for moving through a diverse, sometimes genre-traversing dynamic range, employing guitar flourishes that tip the cap to the whimsical fretwork of Cap’n Jazz as well as classic tenor-baritone vocal interplay that fits together like lamb and tuna fish. Gingerlys adhere to a similarly energetic pop-punk style, but soak the whole production in reverb. The result is something that sounds like Slumberland circa 1996 - I’m talking bands like Velocity Girl or Rocketship, drenched in liquidy synth pads. Soft, murmured male-female vocals further locate them within the fuzzy tradition of MBV-influenced 90s noise pop. Old Maybe composes succinct, minimalist, occasionally dreary, always otherworldly bedroom ditties that capture fleeting, sometimes inconsequential moments and emotions. The project at times seems like a spider web used to ensnare passing sonic ideas, but the inspiration underlying each experimentation is clear. Line Leader is another lively, garage-punk-inclined act who weave through unwavering surf jingles and raw, driving Wipers-style jams. Venue Boy, (Please contract one of the acts or venue for more info.), 7pm, $5-$7, All Ages - Bryce Woodcock
