New Downtrodder EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The quartet of Downtrodder recently shared a new EP III, which is available on cassette and vinyl via War Fever. The band comes out prepared to fight for what it believes in. Unwilling to sit back and compromise, the songs call out societal hypocrisy across a range of heavy-hitting subjects. A roaring-n-rumbling, act-now perspective is voiced. You can catch the band at The Sin Bucket on this Saturday, September 15, with Solarized, Husbandry, and Yarrow.

New Shannen Moser LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Let the gentle, acoustic strums and country-tinged hymnals of Shannen Moser's I'll Sing take your weary heart back to the warmth and comfort of home. The reflective nature of each recording carries us to familiar places, opening up a floodgate of feels. Allow them to wash over you. I'll Sing is out now via Lame-O Records, and you can stream and purchase it below. Moser will be performing this Saturday, September 15 at Underground Arts with Okkervil River, and don't miss her co-headlining, dual record release celebration with labelmates Thin Lips on Saturday, September 22 at the First Unitarian Church.


Weekend Warrior, September 7 - 9

Ever since garage rockers RunHideFight shared their demos with us last year, we’ve been eager to hear an official release. With Geeta Simons (Rockula, Swisher) on lead vocals and guitar, John Terlesky (Brother JT) on lead guitar and vocals, Christine Weiser (Mae Peng) on bass, and Jon Kois (The Three 4 Tens, Marah) on drums, the band is set to drop its debut 7” vinyl single, “He’s a Jerk,” on September 28 via Hidden Volume Records. However, they’ll be hosting an early celebration for its arrival tonight at Johnny Brenda’s, where attendees will get a free download code, as well as the opportunity to pre-order the limited pressing. RunHideFight will also be supported by local glam-rock outfit Creem Circus and the heavy sounds of Sheena & Thee Nosebleeds. The heatwave is breaking, but don’t be afraid to get a little sweaty this evening at the beloved Fishtown watering hole! (Photo by Chris Sikich) – Alexis V.

New Video: "Nightbird" (Live - Sun Porch Session) - Eliza Edens

Last October, Chris Caulder (of Seldom Family) recorded/filmed singer-songwriter Eliza Edens performing “Nightbird” as part of the Ousted Records Sun Porch Session #11. Sunlight, an acoustic picking pattern and Edens's elegant vocals intersect, creating a solemn, nostalgic, folk feel. As autumn begins to approach, the lullaby taps into youthful memories, making things temporarily slow-down, while serving as a marker for how fast the years move by. In the meantime, the performance is a calming force, helping to bring another busy workweek to an end. (Photo by Anthony Mulcahy)
