Sheer Mag





Weekend Warrior May 12 - 14

 An immediate, determined sense of soulful urgency drips from Sheer Mag. Shrouded in sticky grooves united with decisively climbing guitar licks, the band seizes the opportunity, gathering the collective energy within the room and harnessing it into an exhibition, showcasing the duality, when vulnerability transforms into power. Fresh off the announcement of their forthcoming debut full-length Need to Feel Your Love, which will be available on July 16 via Static Shock Records, the former Deli Philly Artist(s) of Year bring their rippin' and roarin' chew ‘em up and spit ‘em out rock 'n' roll to First Unitarian Church this Saturday. The melodic, fuzz-speckled, bass-thumping garage-punk of Marge help to fortify this billing, which also includes Vancouver’s Weed.
 
Meanwhile, over at PhilaMOCA on the same evening, the bright, bubbling, psych-venturing pop of six-piece collective Circadian Rhythms gently stacks instrumental layers, melding refreshingly with its slightly off-kilter arrangements. The band will be celebrating its new record, A Peculiar Kind of Afternoon, supported by the sunny instrumentals of R.R. Perkins and the casually cloudy exploits of Mavis the Dog. - Michael Colavita

New Track: "Just Can't Get Enough" - Sheer Mag

Sheer Mag just announced that their highly-anticipated debut full-length album, Need To Feel Your Love, will be released on July 14 via Static Shock Records. Its debut single, “Just Can’t Get Enough,” combines soulfully, unabashed vocals with quick charges of weaving guitar. That precisely threaded juxtaposition of raw refinement is exactly what you need to get over this hump day. Sheer Mag will be headlining the First Unitarian Church this Saturday, May 13 with support from Marge, Weed, and Bugg.





New Sheer Mag LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Sheer Mag announced earlier this month that they would be releasing their first three EPs remastered as a vinyl LP, entitled Compilation. They have also teamed up with Malaysian DIY label Exit Music, and will be releasing the full-length on cassette as First Three EPs, which is available for streaming and purchase digitally below. The band is also set to tour Australia and New Zealand at the beginning of December.

A Benefit For A Friend In Need w/Sheer Mag at PhilaMOCA Nov. 14

The Deli Philly 2014 Best Emerging Artist Poll Winner, Sheer Mag recently announced that they'll be combining their first three seven-inches into one LP, entitled Compilation. They have also remastered the EPs I & II for the collection. Tonight is the hard-rockin', riff-lovin' quintet's last scheduled show in Philly before heading out on their tour of Australia and New Zealand so you want to make it out to PhilaMOCA this evening where they'll be holding A Benefit For A Friend In Need. Sheer Mag will be joined at this charitable R5-presented event by Philly punks Wild at Heart, whom we are expecting some good things from in the near future, and gutter-pop trio Metalleg. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $12, All Ages - Alexis V.





Cross Over Into an Alternative Universe w/Vanillalord at Everybody Hits May 25

Vanillalord have something to celebrate this evening at Everybody Hits with the release of their new record Macro Plaque PAC. It's their first via Boiled Records, and the band crosses over into an alternative universe, as keys, bass, and percussion dictates a playfully intense, search-party sound. Commanding baritone vocals reign from the front as tightly spun post-punk wheels drive ahead, cruising with purpose. That focus captures glances of newly exposed alien lifeforms that inhabit the area, while danger potentially lies around any corner; discovery is at the controls. Tonight, the firing-on-all-cylinders sound of Sheer Mag, whose infectious, garage-hardened grit merges slick guitar licks, a relentless backend thrust, and vocals that tear right through the center, will be joining them. Meanwhile, Mike Polizze (of Purling Hiss) will lock you into a fuzzed-out, psych-pop spectrum, punctuated by flexing guitar muscle. With a smacking immediacy, Memphis punks Ex-Cult complete this lineup. Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 8pm, $10, All Ages - Michael Colavita
