Fresh Buzz: Ghost Funk Orchestra Releases Single, "Skin I'm In"

The output of NYC-based Ghost Funk Orchestra is becoming increasingly more sophisticated, and the group is also playing more frequently this year, which is always a good sign. Their most recent LP release, A Song For Paul (a band member's grandfather) is a complex matter propelled by a 10-piece band comprising horns, woodwinds, strings, keys, a tambourine, on top of the expected drums/bass/guitar. Their latest single "Skin I'm In" is an excersize of restrained psychedelia at times reminiscent of unforgettable British band Broadcast.

Featuring effected vocals that span layers of groovy orchestral textures, the single seemlessly blends elements from ganres as disparate as funk, noise rock and Eastern music. This is one of the coolest track we stumbled upon this year; you can check out Ghost Funk Orchestra at Elsewhere on July 30th at 8 PM. - Susan Moon

New Purling Hiss EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

"Summer meanz guitarz!" With Purling Hiss's latest EP Interstellar Blue, a gravitational pull of heavy is balanced by an ethereal drift. Its languid, mind-warping, guitar grooves have arrived just in time for the dog days of summer - a sublime complement to a frosty beverage and a fat spliff. You can grab your very own copy via Drag City Records. Purling Hiss are also all set to kick off their run of July shows this evening at PhilaMOCA, supported by The Writhing Squares and Long Hots.

New Track: "Time Is Right" - Pouring Silver

The quartet of Jo Kusy (Far-Out Fangtooth, The Whips), Travis Weissman (Haunted Homes), Nina Scotto (Fake Nudes, Queen of Jeans), and Adam Herndon (A Sunny Day in Glasgow, Pet Milk)  have combined forces to form Pouring Silver. "Time Is Right" is the band's debut single. One slips into a melodic, daydreamy haze as the song gently drifts and sways. With a Jeff Ziegler-produced EP in the works, this is definitely just the beginning for this gang of Philly music scene vets. Pouring Silver is slated to perform on Thursday, August 15 at Beautiful World Syndicate, on a lineup that also includes Jack Name and Elison Jackson. (Photo by Alex Philippe Cohen)

Lunar Ticks @ Sleeping Village (7/27)

Heavy Psych Rockers Lunar Ticks are preparing for an upcoming show at Sleeping Village on July 27th. They will be sharing the stage with Railway Gamblers and Goose Corp., and are currently running a poll on Facebook where you can help curate their playlist for the event.

The band released their latest album, Unknown Gnomes/Neon Horses, nearly a year ago, but it is absolutely one to revisit.
