New Lowercase Rose Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Lowercase Roses, a.k.a. Matt Scheuermann, has released a new album. Surgical Pop injects ferocity into the bedroom-folk, lamplit shadows. Juxtaposing an assertive gritty aggression against a serenading twinkle, the album ebbs and flows, catching one off guard in a surprisingly positive manner. From moments of pared-down beauty to jarring jangle, the record, whose proceeds go to the Attic Youth Center, operates with care.

october tooth bring nostalgic lo-fi to The Basement (09.09)

october tooth is the name and minimalism is the game for local lo-fi indie rockers Zachary Threlkeld and Cowboy Sam Gidley (who also drums for The Lonely Biscuits,) the duo behind the project that releases new music every October. Their newest installment is an 8-track LP called easy corners that sounds just as good through headphones as it would on a cassette deck. The album is a nostalgia-tinged journey back through the last year, complete with poetic reflections on personal relationships (“I always seem to turn the lights on you”) and declarations about the future (“it’s alright, I’m not giving up this time.”) Despite choosing to release only one project annually, the band remains active on the live scene and will be performing at The Basement on Saturday, September 9th. - Lilly Milman

New Small Circle LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Cyclical, the debut album from Small Circle, is officially out today via Flower Girl Records. Delicate but driven instrumentation rolls forward as the soft strength of intersplicing vocals serve as a fuse-sparking catalyst.

Quick, concise, Polaroid-style songs leave an imprint that is hard to discard.

New Track: "Fish Fry" - Slaughter Beach, Dog

“Fish Fry” serves as the latest sampling from Slaughter Beach, Dog’s forthcoming album Birdie, which is set for release on October 27 via Lame-O Records/Big Scary Monsters. Wandering through the evening alone, while exploring the spectrum of one's emotional depths, what begins at a steady walking pace, gradually gains backend tempo. Finding a melodic middle-ground between the frustration that drives you to pull your hair out and moving on, the song’s persistent pain remains. Slaughter Beach, Dog will be performing as part of the Philly Music & Arts Fest on Saturday, September 23 at World Café Live.
