New Dark Blue Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Victory Is Rated, the third studio album from Dark Blue, is out now via 12XU. The magnitude and discontent of the current state of affairs rings remarkably clear. With a jarring, marching heaviness and John Sharkey III’s booming controlled baritone cutting through in melancholy catharsis, these songs bring you to your feet, but it also makes you take step back and reevaluate. The record appears to address larger societal problems, while integrating them within a powerful, personal perspective. (Photo by Manny Dominguez Jr.)


New Track: "Chain Reaction" - Control Top

A new single from Control Top’s highly-anticipated full-length debut, Covert Contracts (scheduled for release on April 5 via Get Better Records) has arrived. A fire-starting buzz instantly glows in the grimy, ripping “Chain Reaction.” Addressing the momentous avalanche of negativity and how it has rippling, personal affects, the track increases the hostility, and in a way, temporarily diffuses it. You can find the power trio on tour opening for Laura Jane Grace & The Devouring Mothers and Mercy Union, with a stop in Philly on Friday, April 19 at Underground Arts. (Photo by Farrah Skeiky)

New Music Video: "The Sun Still Seems to Move" - Shannen Moser

"The Sun Still Seems to Move," a new song from Philly singer-songwriter Shannen Moser, has arisen. The recording possesses a gentle, folk-country progression as Moser narrates in an earnest, emotive manner with raw, gripping beauty. Inserting a poem as vocals bounce and echo off each other, there’s a tender yet escalating tension that tears right through. You can catch Moser this Thursday, February 28, on a Home Outgrown Presents lineup at The Music Ward that also includes The Obsessives and Active Bird Community. (Photo by Vincent Sadonis)

New Bridge Underwater LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Bridge Underwater recently shared its new self-titled full-length album. Breathe in the buoyant, bubbly, pop-rock sound. Velvety, seamless melodies and exacting, instrumental lines create a weightless sense of intimacy, as the synth and vocals wash over you. It’s delicate, dreamy and danceable - all at the same time.
