New Track: "All Who Are Thirsty" (Brenton Brown/Glenn Robertson Cover) - Abi Reimold

Philly singer-songwriter Abi Reimold recently shared their take of Brenton Brown/Glenn Robertson's “All Who Are Thirsty”. A solemn, heaviness hangs in the air. Accompanied by guitar, Reimold stretches out a hand in an eerily inviting manner, as the weight of the words pile up. Allow it all to sink in. (Photo by Kathryn Rogers)

Weekend Warrior - July 19 - 21

Taiwan Housing Project have released another lethal LP Sub-Language Trustees, which is now available via ever/never records. The band generates a jarring intensity, shaking up the status quo. Kilynn Lunsford’s vocals demand one’s attention, in a mesmerizing fashion as the experimental instrumentation swirls in a chaotic, post-apocalyptic fashion. Unlikely combinations create unsettling sonic surroundings in the aftermath. Thrown into a cacophony of chaos that rumbles and roars, the band leads you through the fiery force of the unknown. This Saturday night, Cousin Danny’s will be hosting the Taiwan Housing Project’s record release celebration, with support from The Doilies and Eat (who were just added to the bill due to Chronic Anxiety’s Mitch Esparza being injured during a strong-arm robbery – we are certainly wishing him well and hoping for a speedy recovery). Stay cool & hydrated out there! (Photo by Rich Wexler) – Michael Colavita

New Track: "Hereditary Trauma Dream Sprinting (Oxford Circle)" - Nina Keith

“Hereditary Trauma Dream Sprinting (Oxford Circle)” is the lead single from MARANASATI 19111, the forthcoming debut full-length from Nina Keith. The LP is slated to arrive on August 30 via Grind Select. From its bird-chirping opening through the elegant expansive piano and flourishes of flute, etc., Keith creates a vivid, sonic landscape that also includes vocal assistance from Becki Freiberg. A graceful, weightless atmosphere thrives within an inherently complex, classical setting. It feels as though all your senses have been finely tuned to fully appreciate the nuanced layers.
