Weekend Warrior, October 9 - 11

For us, this weekend is all about our Anniversary Bash this Saturday at PhilaMOCA. It’s a great time for us to let loose and listen to some of our favorite Philly bands perform. Providing the rad tunes will be the neo-psych explorations of The Orange Drop, the darkwave prom-pop of Blood Sound, and the endearing indie-pop/rock of Hello Shark. Suburban Living will also be spinning the vinyl jams for your listening pleasure. Refreshments will be available so come celebrate with us another year of love for local music! BTW: We need to get things ready, and will be most likely recovering from the festivities so we’ll catch up with you again after the weekend. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $10, All Ages - Q.D.

New Track: "Gold Or Silver" - Three Man Cannon

A honing-in, winding noise gives way to flexible breakout percussion, setting the tempo in Three Man Cannon's latest “Gold Or Silver.” The song is the first taste from the band’s new EP Will I Know You Then, which is scheduled for release on November 6 via Lame-O Records. The song gathers instrumental momentum in unison as the vocals lead the way, displaying a guttural pull with a controlled reserve. That measured exertion demonstrates an efficiently planned attacking style. Three Man Cannon ill be performing next in Philly on Friday, October 23 at Girard Hall.


New Myrrias Single Release Available for Streaming & Purchase

Myrrias have a new single release. "All Alone" may add to you feeling some kind of way on this overcast day. It's also accompanied by a cover of Nico's "60/40" and an original instrumental piece called "on your own," which were all co-produced with Jeff Zeigler at Uniform Recording. Myrrias recently wrapped up a run with White Laces, and said farewell to drummer Casey Bell, who is moving to Nevada.


The Deli Philly's Featured Artist Poll Winner: Albert Ryan

Albert Ryan has an earnest desire to connect with his listeners as he drowsily leads them into the afterhours. Raised in a musical family, his melodies and beats feel like they come very naturally to him, as does the solemnness of his sound. We think that you’ll be hearing a lot more from Albert Ryan in the near future, but until then, you can learn more about his past HERE.
