New Track: "Staying In" - Cold Fronts

Philly's Cold Fronts has been building moment again as the band gets ready to release its sophomore album, Fantasy du Jour, on the beloved stoner holiday 4/20. Below is the group's latest nugget of slackerdom, called "Staying In," which recently premiered over at Noisey. Frontman Craig Almquist shared a bit of insight about Cold Fronts' new single. "I felt so refreshed when I wrote this song because it was so simple and it had nothing to do with being sad or being in love or feeling like the world is gonna end. It was just nice to sing about something else for a change. It’s one of our more knucklehead songs." You can find Almquist and the gang at Boot & Saddle tomorrow night, where they will be opening for Chicago's Post Animal and local pals Suburban Living.

Weekend Warrior, February 2 - 4

The clarity that often accompanies consuming, clean, cold air hangs in the isolated, fuzzy folk-pop of Matt Scheuermann, a.k.a. Lowercase Roses. His latest release, Surgical Pop, stitches together precise melodies within intimate lyrics. Delicate, revealing storylines are juxtaposed by the harsher instrumental friction of the outside world. Channeling the nostalgia of youth seen through the wisdom of experience, Cherry captures a universal memory, igniting a flashback fuse and (at times) simmering in a gentle sway. Performing solo this Saturday, Mimi Gallagher (Nona, Year Of Glad, Eight) will craft catchy, grungy, pop-punk. With their forthcoming album Reveries (due out February 23 via Egghunt Records), the brutal beauty of Delaware garage rock trio Grace Vonderkuhn rounds out this Everybody Hits lineup.

New Very Bad Vibes LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Very Bad Vibes, a.k.a. Sam Huntington, recently dropped his second album House and Home. Huntington explores personal depths, revealing intriguing, self-conscience awareness. That candid openness, coupled with consistently adventurous, groove-anchored instrumentation, paints a fun/fragile dynamic. Enlisting former Original Crooks and Nannies bandmate Madeline Rafter (Snake Boy Gang) for a little vocal duty, the album zooms in close, but can’t stand still. Very Bad Vibes is slated to appear alongside Coping Skills, Candy Boys, and Julia Rainer on Wednesday, February 21 at Tralfamadore.
