Literature (Philly, Slumberland), Cruel Summer, Smiles

October 4 @ 9:00 pm - 11:55 pm
literature-sm

LITERATURE (Philadelphia, Slumberland Records) Effortlessly catchy and well-crafted tunes that echo pop legends like Smiths and Orange Juice. “The antsy enthusiasm of the Feelies, the twinkling tone of Johnny Marr’s guitar, the “Go on, then” romanticism of Buzzcocks. But instead of coming off as a retread of bands dead and gone, they charm with humor […]

Deaf Wish (AUS, Sub Pop), Life Stinks, Musk

October 7 @ 8:30 pm - 11:55 pm
deafwish-sm

DEAF WISH is not a band. Rather, a cruel joke that collides personalities that shouldn’t share oxygen let alone creative impulses. Their seven-year history could be condensed to a flash of intense love, separation and science fiction. This is a group stuck together with tape and spit. This is a guitar band. For­­­ the ages. […]

October 11 @ 9:00 pm - 11:55 pm

ZODIAC DEATH VALLEY “Ever since Gram Parsons uttered the phrase all those years ago, the “cosmic American music” label has been applied to many artists who have attempted to follow the same visionary approach to traditional American folk and country sounds.

LORELLE MEETS THE OBSOLETE “Brewing a hot pot of shoegaze and Krautrock bubbled through a psych filter, the band knows how to ride the edge of groove and gently cut back to spacey atmospherics to superb effect.” CARLTON MELTON DAVID NOVICK

CHARLIE MEGIRA Hailing from Israel’s own Pleiadian realm of Beit-She’an, Megira create tunes that interfuse Belial Rock n’ Roll and coffin-shaped New-Wave and Post Punk.
