Behaviorist Announces New EP and Mercury Lounge Show

The Brooklyn-based band, Behaviorist, led by frontman Stephen Rhodes Chen, just announced the release of their debut, self-titled EP, self-titled. A close listen to the record reveals Rhodes Chen's social commentary and stream-of-consciousness thoughts on human interaction. The EP waddles between funk, experimental pop, and the highly stylized indie rock of elegant singer/songwriters from the past two decades. For a relatively young band still walking on the high of their sold-out release show at Pianos, this band is showcasing a lot of creative energy and interesting ideas - it's definitely worth a listen.  Behaviorist's first summer show will be at the Mercury Lounge on July 18th.





HEELE releases a sonic monsoon in new EP "Pathos"

The sonic monsoon that is HEELE has positioned project-founder Michael Henss on the lips of several local publications (now including yours truly). It should come as no surprise that the haunting prog rock that is displayed in HEELE’s debut record Pathos has garnished such attention, the music is far too energized to ignore. Pathos is a whirlwind of heavy electric guitar riffs and shell-shocking drums interrupted by brief eye-of-the-storm moments where acoustic strings shine. The music feels like a freeing of sorts for Henss who has played in several bands (Hellrazor, Ungifted, Dead Wives) over the years while working on this personal project since 2015, the music has bubbled beneath the surface long enough, and now it sees the light of day. As groups like The Mars Volta prepare to return, the experimental and progressive rock they have championed seems ready for another vanguard run, and artists like Henss have got a head start. “Losing It All” from Pathos is streaming below. - Rene Cobar





New Track: "Useful Information" - Purling Hiss

Interstellar Blue, the forthcoming EP from Purling Hiss, is set to arrive on July 9 via Drag City. Mike Polizze and friends recently shared its lead single, “Useful Information,” an even-keeled, psych-blues sojourn. The track takes you on a languid, muggy stroll in the summer sun, as a bit of guitar-fueled heat blares down upon you. Purling Hiss will be performing next in Philly on Thursday, July 11, with support from Writhing Squares and Long Hots.





New Shelf Life LP Available for Streaming & Download

After prolifically posting multiple releases over the last few years via his Bandcamp, Philly singer-songwriter Scotty Leitch, a.k.a. Shelf Life, has cleared his page, and shared FEARLESS, Leitch's latest full-length album. The LP occupies an intimate, pensive, folk-anchored sound. However, within those contemplative melodies, there are experimental twists that create an intriguing, mysterious element. Keep them coming; please don't quit making music, Scotty.





Hazel Bloom debuts decadently delicious EP "Space Between Words on a Page"

Boston's Hazel Bloom has created an alt-pop decadence too delicious not to indulge: once you get a taste of his EP Space Between Words on a Page you will be hooked. The richly-layered sonic confection of pop melodies is glazed with sweet R&B rhythms and topped with irresistibly syrupy synthesizer riffs. Bloom is taking the best of pop's current climate and adding whichever ingredients he sees fit to pay tribute to the recipe that makes the genre so addicting while still keeping it a signature serving of his own. The return of Madonna—for better or worse—revitalizes the genre and heats the spotlight on artists like Bloom, no matter to him though, as he has plenty of goods to bake still. "Lipstick Love" is streaming below. - Rene Cobar
