Catch Lady Pills at O'Brien's Pub ahead of the release of their debut LP "Despite"

Based off the lead single "Irrelevant" (streaming) it would appear that Boston band Lady Pills is transitioning to a more aggressive rock sound for their upcoming debut album Despite, scheduled for a July release. The deviating guitar patterns, refined percussion, heavy vocals and everything else that made their past releases enjoyable are still there, but on their newest release everything is kicked up a notch. The dynamic shifts are bolder, the rhythm section more prominent and the lyrics more intense. Regardless of whether this transformation will be seen throughout the LP or just on this track, it is encouraging to see the three-piece girl band experiment with their sound in convincing ways. You can check out Lady Pills' new music at O'Brien's Pub on 6/14. —Henry Solotaroff-Webber

Debut Wild At Heart EP Available for Streaming & Download

Fledgling Philly punk outfit Wild At Heart (which features members of Blank Spell, Chondria, Haldol & Latex) recently shared its debut release, TOUR TAPE 2016. The five-song EP was recorded and mastered by Kyle Gilbride on April 20, 2016, and you can stream and download it for free below. The band will be returning home tonight from tour, and will performing at PhilaMOCA, opening for Radioactivity and Bad Sports. You can also catch them tomorrow evening at LAVA Space.


New Track: "Kill The Thing You Love" - Lithuania

Lithuania recently dropped a new track called "Kill The Thing You Love". The song was originally written during the Hardcore Friends sessions, but ended up not being a good fit for the debut album. Lame-O Records is releasing it as a stand-alone single, and all the proceeds will go to Women Against Abuse. Grab yourself a copy; it's definitely a win-win situation.

Jessie Clavin of Bleached talks about stompboxes on Delicious Audio

Our first thought when we heard "Wednesday Night Melody" - the new single by Los Angeles power pop trio Bleached - was: "This song should be on Rock Band!" - which, if you think about it for a minute or two - is a heck of a compliment. The ladies' new record "Welcome the Worms" showcases an evolution from their early vintage sounding garage-psych-pop, to a more muscular and modern "Alt" sound that, while more produced and punchy, retains the fun of those classic radio friendly punk songs a la' Joan Jett. Check out this Q&A about guitars pedals with Bleachede's guitarist Jessie Clavin on Delicious Audio!


Weekend Warrior, June 10 - 12

Since coming onto the Philly music scene, Mumblr is a band that has been consistently churning out some seriously interesting material. Led by the versatility of frontman Nick Morrison’s vocals, the quartet continues to refine its sound on its newest LP The Never Ending Get Down, which is out today via Austin-based label Fleeting Youth Records. I’m totally rooting for these guys to get more national attention and tours in the near future, and their latest album is sounding like another big step in the right direction. Tomorrow night, you can catch Mumblr tearing through songs from their new record as well as some of their older favorites at PhilaMOCA. It’s a rad lineup in which you also find the blistering “shitpunk” of Mannequin Pussy and the post-something power-gaze of Amanda X. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $10, All Ages - Alexis V.
