Cantina
"' Horizons' EP
"
mp3

Cantina is the Italian word for "cellar," the dark and rather cold place where time, wood, air and silence magically transorfm tedious grape juice into inebriating, delicious wine. Cantina is also the name of Renata Zeiguer's growing musical project, a band so quiet that one could say it flirts with silence, and so charming and dreamy to sound magic. Their seven track debut EP 'Horizons' opens with airy ballad 'When Your Eyes,' that sounds like an irresistible siren call coming out of an old wooden gramophone, where a lush, acoustic arrangement slowly overwhelms a melody so pristine it could only be conceived in the the squalid corners of Bushwick. All we can gather from the lyrics is: "and if you ask me to..." - which is really all a siren should say to a hungover NYC-life sailor. The rest of the record offers similar atmospheres, althought at times more upbeat ('Stay Like This') and more electric ('Fields') but always dominated by Renata's celestial soprano and her otherworldly melodies, and well supported by an unobtrusive musical background that perfectly serves each song.

Final Summer Show w/Pattern is Movement & Moon Bounce at Spruce St. Harbor Park Aug. 21

Smoothly layered grooves with enriching, silky vocals, that's what Pattern is Movement brings to Spruce Street Harbor Park this evening as part of this summer’s final free concert event, presented by the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation in conjunction with Weathervane Music (with a portion of the bar sales going to support the organization).  The duo of Andrew Thiboldeaux and Chris Ward creates complex music, grabbing elements from a wide array of styles & genres with the use of strings, horns, synth, etc., developing a sound all their own. And while their compositions provide depth, they do so while still marinating an airy comforting atmosphere allowing listeners to appreciate the interwoven R&B/soul/electro compositions without being weighed down by them. Local sex-pop aficionados Night Panther were schedule to appear; however, they unfortunately had to bow out due to personal reasons, and Corey Regensburg, a.k.a. Moon Bounce, is set to perform bringing his slightly twisted, entrancing electronic R&B/hip-hop hybrid. Spruce Street Harbor Park (Spruce St. & Columbus Ave.), 7:30pm, Free, All Ages - Michael Colavita


New Music Video: "Under The Pressure" - The War on Drugs

The War on Drugs have a new music video for "Under The Pressure," the second single off their latest critically-acclaimed LP Lost in the Dream (Secretly Canadian). Bravo to the direction of Houmam, who pieces together a surreal, cinematic backdrop to the nearly nine-minute soundscape! The band is getting set to hit the road next month, and the touring will be going straight into November with no Philly dates currently scheduled. (Photo by Jessica Amaya)

Hardcore Friends Lithuania at KFN Aug. 20

Uniting two talented musicians in a collaborative effort is a promising proposition, especially when they are Dominic Angelella and Eric Slick. Tonight, Kung Fu Necktie hosts the duo known individually for their work in DRGN KING and Dr. Dog respectively. Despite their busy schedules, the two friends have released a pair of EPs under the name Lithuania. The latest, an adrenalized, catchy burst of garage-pop with a noisy element, Domesticated God, released this past spring, serves as a preview/precursor for a full length LP Hardcore Friends, which is currently in the works and scheduled for release in 2015. This evening's show will also include the open-book folk of Anthony Leitch-led About A Million, while Chicago-based Shiloh, who recently released Last Time For Everything, will be performing a personal amalgamation of rock with notes of garage-grit, inflecting a humorous/up close lyrical personality and a stuck-in-your-head pop sentiment. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $5, 21+ - Michael Colavita
