Mike Quinn Opening for Quiet Life at MilkBoy Philly Dec. 12

Mike Quinn’s lyrical approach could be considered quirky, since his observations often twist rather than taking a clear path. However, those “odd” decisions create memorable routes, which, coupled with his distinct delivery, has a way of embedding his words in your mind. Instrumentally, it’s familiar enough and reminiscent of a folksy Americana backdrop, with those endearingly inviting open-screen-door tones. However, taking a closer look, those traditional images are slightly warped and out of focus in a surprising revitalized configuration. The overcast folk of The Bailey Hounds fill the middle slot. The foursome continues to emerge with tightly constructed agonizingly endearing tunes that offer a glimpse of light amid the darkness. The night will be headlined by the fresh energy-infused Americana of Quiet Life. Milkboy Philly, 1100 Chestnut St., 8:30pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Free Download: “Thinking About You (Rework Feat. Radji Mateen Sr.)” - Khari Mateen

The collaborative pairing of father and son, sax-playing Radji Mateen Sr. and multi-instrumentalist Khari Mateen, is a long-standing endeavor. Their latest, a reworking of “Thinking About You,” is a forward-thrusting, seductively funky song propelled by the percussion/sax interplay, and that sax opens up for a tasty run to boot. You can stream and download the track for free below.


New Track: "We Here" - Bahamadia

Legendary Philly emcee Bahamadia just dropped a new track, "We Here," to remind us that she still gots the goods. Look out for her long-awaited forthcoming solo LP! She's currently making her rounds with the Someothaship Connection Tour.
