Nylon Smile releases blissful debut single, "Dust"

Nylon Smile, the nom de plume of Nikolas Soelter, is taking a new, more reflective direction on his new single "Dust." Soelter, formerly of post-punk band Never Young, explores a brighter indie rock sound with a duskily invigorating focus. Under the helm of Melina Duterte of Jay Som, Soelter utilizes chilly textures set against a dainty guitar lead with an all-around blissful coating. 

"Dust" is the first reveal off of Soelter's debut EP, Angel of Doubt, which is out in August via Citrus City records. Juan Rodríguez

The Classic Punk of Planet Damn

Since its beginnings in the late 60s, punk has evolved to encompass a wide variety of subgenres. However, that doesn’t mean a modern day punk band can’t make classic punk revival, CGBG-style! Such can be said about Planet Damn. Their music is fast and grating. The lead vocalist jumps into each song with the same vigor and energy, with zero hesitation - a conviction that is required for any good punk band. Planet Damn's lyrics are simple and catchy without ever falling into the traps of cliche'. With their aggressive and blunt guitar riffs, this a band refreshingly reminiscent of popular 70s acts like the Dead Boys and the Dictators - keep an ear on them! - Avril Carrillo

New New Speedway LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Total Babe is the latest album from Philly six-piece New Speedway, arriving via Time Castle Recordings. Peering through the static of fuzz-reverberating rock, the vocals console in a tranquilizing, dream state. Basking in that pleasant trance, one sheds worry. However, amid those sunny ventures, there is an underlying propensity to zoom through the skies, flexing riff-charged afterburners.
