Debut Social Norms LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The duo of Daniel Collins and Joseph Dabney, a.k.a. Social Norms, recently shared their debut album and the sweetly yet bitterly titled, Happy Birthday to The Love of My Life and Her New Boyfriend Andrew. An air of innocence and nostalgia looms in the open, emotive exposures. Fondly looking back, these recordings express the warmth of past memories, mixed with the sting of mistakes realized. The LP aches while building anthems of heartbreak and regret.

Weekend Warrior, March 2 - 4

Since last September, Andy Moholt has been playing guitar with Speedy Ortiz, and he has also released not one but two collaborative LPs with Ava Luna’s Julian Fader, under the moniker Coffee. And before he heads out to SXSW and a tour in May/June with Speedy Ortiz, Molholt will be squeezing in a live performance of his Laser Background catalogue at Space 1026 this Saturday evening. With a new EP in the works, you may get to hear some recently fleshed out pieces of what he’s been up to in the lab with Carlos Hernandez (Ava Luna) and bandmate Michael Chadwick. On the bill, you’ll also find the melodic contemplations of Dweller, medieval folk-pop of Sandcastle, and indie-popsters Rabbits to Riches. So get there early, go grab a tasty bite in Chinatown, and come hang at the rad Center City DIY art space! – H.M. Kauffman

New Track: "Nite Owl's Theme" (Feat. Ai-Que & Reef The Lost Cauze) - Rolled Gold

“Nite Owl’s Theme” serves as the second installment from Rolled Gold’s forthcoming compilation album. Riding the wave of an infectious, hypnotic flute line, a street-cruising sound sets the stage for Ai-Que's relaxed, pertinent bars, outlining the strategy necessary to attain one’s goals. Philly's hip-hop truthsayer Reef The Lost Cauze takes his turn at educating the future, favoring wisdom over weaponry and family over the familiar.

New Track: "Where Did I Go Wrong" - Annie Glass

Annie Glass is the new musical vehicle of Farzad Houshiarnejad (formerly of Night Panther, White Birds, and Drink Up Buttercup). As if sung from futuristic mountaintop, “Where Did I Go Wrong” captures a sleek, nighttime intimacy. A persistent synth-steered groove snaps you to your feet. However, is it really dancing if your floating in a cloud?
