New Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band Live EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band recently dropped a live EP, entitled Rare Dreams: Solar Live 2​.​27​.​18, capturing a three-song sampling of their performance at London’s Café Oto. Bookended by Peter Kerlin & Jason Robira (both of Sunwatchers), Forsyth launches into a cosmic sojourn. The amped-up trio sound connected and ready to push sonic boundaries at rocket speed. Wedged in between a couple of originals ("Dreaming In The Non-Dream" & "The First 10 Minutes of Cocksucker Blues"), Forsyth also lyrically adapts and personally contextualizes a cover of Neil Young’s “Don’t Be Denied,” off 1973's Time Fades Away. You can catch Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band tear things up this Saturday, May 12 at PhilaMOCA, supported by Sunwatchers.

A Deli Premiere: single "Adieu" from NH-based People Like You

It’s been a little less than a year since The Deli New England last heard from People Like You, the eclectic and electric gypsy-folk-rockers hailing from Portsmouth, NH. And they haven’t wasted a second of that time. Their forthcoming third studio album, Dancing on the Dead, shows the band at their best—they’re tighter than ever before, and they haven’t given up on their rootsy experimental sound, either. People Like You is filling in the gap left by other, freak-folk greats—perhaps most specficially, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeroes. Of course, they don’t fit perfectly in the space left by the now-disbanded group, because the music of People Like You is entirely their own. There’s nothing derivative about it.

We’re happy to be premiering the single “Adieu” from Dancing on the Dead, which will be released on May 11th. The release of the album will kickstart a summer tour, beginning at Fury’s Publick House in Dover, NH. - Lilly Milman, photo by Lily Eye

TAMPA remember their youthful days on new single, "Teen Age" (Video)

Growing up sure feels fast, doesn't it? But sometimes it's good to go back and reflect, which Tampa does with effusive delight on the video for their first single, "Teen Age." "I miss those days when your life floats away, don't you?," singer Lucas Field muses as a fluttery guitar strum warms up the song's wistful tone. Everything about "Teen Age" is concise, heartfelt, and vivid; the quintet quickly ricochet with an impulsive melody that's set against some crafty arrangements, and their boyish charm evokes a hopeful and affectionate view of the small world that surrounds them.

Jack Larsen "Break"

Jack Larsen recently signed to the local label Closed Session, and now is releasing his first single with them, “Break”. This track comes from his forthcoming debut EP, Push-up, which is due out May 18th. Larsen had this to say about the song and video below, "Half a year of my life was spent making the song and video to capture my coming-of-age story". Larsen, 22, grew up in the Western Suburb of St. Charles and definitely about to Break.

Bodega share video for “Jack in Titanic” + play LP release at Sunnyvale on 06.01

It starts with a moment of sincerity, the music gentler and more intimate, if only slightly, than the wry post-punk typical of Bodega: “well no one is as salty as the seven seas except me.” But the moment is fleeting. To each of Ben Hozie’s proclamations of individuality in “Jack in Titanic,” he and the band adds “and Jack in Titanic.”  With two previous singles from debut album Endless Scroll and a reputation for propulsive, artistically minded live shows, Bodega has already shown its strengths to be irony, critique, and repurposing. “Jack in Titanic” uses that to the effect of inverting traditional ideas of masculinity as shown by popular cultural: to be handsome, devoted, a good dancer, a good lover. Meanwhile, the video courses out erotic images of computer mouse and cable through a square frame, televisions and cell phones making due appearance—all a part of the digital, media-driven world Bodega is commenting on, the Endless Scroll. You can watch the video for “Jack in Titanic” below. Endless Scroll is out June 1 via What’s Your Rupture? - don't miss the release party at Sunnyvale on that same night. – Cameron Carr
