Debut Infinity Dance Complex LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Infinity Dance Complex is a new musical endeavor from Matt Anderegg (Mothers, Body Meat). Their new album, These Rules, is debuting via Philly's own Nino Tomorrow. Still in its infancy as a label, Nino Tomorrow has spotlighted MIDI mastery from contemporary artists like Ada Babar and Kasra Kurt, while also reissuing obscure recordings from Texas-based electronic sound sculptor Charles Ditto. These Rules immediately submerges the listener in an ethereal, tightly wound, rhythmic enterprise, encircling luminescent dreampop. Like listening to a kaleidoscopic funnel of floating dial tones eclipsing one another, leisurely gazing up from the bottom of a fish tank - sonic layers floating in a time independent of one another, working in tandem to contour what becomes a really well-rounded soundscape. On these recordings, Anderegg successfully synthesizes experimental electronic music and airy, overblown vocals within the framework of pop songcraft. The Infinity Dance Complex songs feel intimate and immediate, yet allude to a distance from the listener that almost heightens its appeal. - Josh Kelly

Weekend Warrior, December 7 - 9

A reflective maturity permeates throughout Fall Into The Sun (Merge Records), the latest album from reunited Swearin’. The quartet’s tour will be making a stop at Everybody Hits tomorrow night. The record seems to see with the clarity that comes from allowing the moment pass. However, it doesn’t feel like a time capsule, more so that altering proximity creates a broader or more well-rounded perspective. That being said; there’s still grit and emotive immediacy in the melodic manner which the lyrical vulnerability and instrumentation entangle. Swearin’ will be joined on the billing by the exuberant, blitzing pop-punk of tourmates Dark Thoughts and Cincinnati garage-punk trio Leggy. – Michael Colavita

New Track: "Waffles" - Fast Car Slow Car

Breshon Martzell, a.k.a. Fast Car Slow Car, recently shared the project's debut single, “Waffles,” which was produced by fellow Straw Hats bandmate/The Districts' Rob Grote. There’s a playful psych-dream aspect, driven by its wandering keys. The deep vocal tone and the futuristic electro-beats create an oddball, 80's aesthetic. Amid the strangeness, there’s a bright, buoyant bounce to the dance-inspiring recording. Its corresponding video was edited by Braden Lawrence (The Districts/Haggert McTaggert), capturing a kaleidoscope of colors within a home video, with a nod to travelers of the cosmos.

New Tracks: "Serial Killer Status" & "Katie's Conscious" - Algernon Cadwallader

Philly emo revivalists Algernon Cadwallader announced plans to reissue their debut album, Some Kind of Cadwallader, in honor of its 10th anniversary, along with 2011's Parrot Flies and a new self-titled compilation, which includes the group's EPs, b-sides, and covers. You'll also find previously unreleased versions of "Serial Killer Status" and "Katie's Conscious" that were originally meant for a seven-inch. The reissues and compilation will be out on December 14 via Lauren Records/Asian Man. There is still no word of future tour plans, but you can find former AC members performing on stage with Hop Along and Yankee Bluff.
