The Inscape Crafts Downhome Psychedelia

The Inscape, who just released their debut LP, We're All Wrong could now be justifiably labeled seasoned Nashville psychedelic rockers. Having released their debut material six years ago, they've been creating and playing music here for what seems like a lifetime in the city's constantly shifting scene. Rather than outgrowing their longtime home, however, it seems they've grown into it. Their latest release marks a departure from the heavier rock and psychedelic influences that their songs soaked in before. Instead, We're All Wrong is something of a psychedelic, alternative country dreamscape, creating an image of the place the group lives and works. The songs are frilled with subtle and beautifully crafted guitar, synth, organ, and pedal steel work atop structural beds of acoustic instrumentation remiscent of indie rock classics like Fruit Bats. If you're new to Nashville's independent music scene, The Inscape is a must listen for fans interested in guitar-heavy rock, psych, americana, and country. They're one of the few bands here still molding the characteristics of "the Nashville sound".

SXSW Bound: Tall Friend

We're in the middle of SXSW, and as more and more bands continue to ascend on Austin, it gives us a chance to check out some Philly acts, making the trek, that we are less familiar with. Earlier this year, the trio of Tall Friend re-released its debut EP Tawl Friend on vinyl via Exploding Sound Records. Singer-songwriter Char (a.k.a. Charlie Pfaff) recorded the introspective collection of tracks with bandmates Cale Cuellar and Jesse Paller during the spring of 2015 at Kokomo. Pfaff was only seventeen years old at the time, which is obviously surprising given the stark, honest beauty of her initial effort. Tall Friend will be performing this evening at the Funeral Sounds/Topshelf Records Unofficial SXSW Showcase at Eden House Co-Op, with fellow Philadelphians Kississippi, as well the Official Exploding In Sound Records Showcase on Thursday, March 16 at The Velveeta Room.

New Track: "Feline" - Vita and the Woolf

Vita and the Woolf explore a shadowy, minimalist-pop approach on their latest single, "Feline". It's seductive, building on every breath before Jennifer Pague's powerful voice bellows into the wind like a banshee. It's a truly captivating track that you'll be able to find on the group's forthcoming LP Tunnel, scheduled for release in April via Believe Digital. Vita and the Woolf are currently on tour with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and they'll be performing next in Philly on Friday, April 21 at Ortlieb's, alongside fellow Deli Philly Best Emerging Artist Poll Top Performer, Deadfellow.





New Moon Bounce LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

After releasing a multitude of EPs and singles, Corey Regensberg, a.k.a. Moon Bounce, has finally dropped his first full-length album, titled Clean House. Available digitally and on 12" vinyl via Grind Select, the LP finds a balance between sultry soul/R&B and glitched-out electropop. The groovetastic, off-kiltered production and surprisingly smooth falsetto vocals certainly helps to separate Regensberg from what is currently coming up from the local underground music scene. Moon Bounce is heading out on tour at the end of this month with New Jersey's Ehiorobo in support of Clean House, and they'll be closing things out in Philly on Friday, April 14 at the recently resuscitated Ulana's.
