Tunji Ige Coolly Delivers at Underground Arts April 21

As part of tonight's Red Bull Sound Select/JUMP Philly-curated billing at Underground Arts, local talent Tunji Ige is slated to hit the stage. With his recently released EP Missed Calls, Ige continues to impress. While smooth-sounding vocal augmentations and futuristic beats are front and center, dictating the energetic jams that are flex-fitting to one’s ears and body, there’s a smooth electro-dance sensation that’s backed by concise storytelling. It’s silky, tightly-compacted musicality that coolly delivers the message. Tunji Ige will also be joined by Moosh & Twist, Loaf Muzik, and Michael Christmas. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 8pm, $10/$3 (w/RSVP), 21+ - Michael Colavita


Free Download: "Speak" - LOUDS

After releasing their debut EP If More People Bought Art More People Would Buy Art, which became The Deli Philly's August 2015 Record of the Month, LOUDS spent the last year building out their studio in Port Richmond and refining their recording and production skills. Below is the group's first sampling, "Speak," which is avaialable for free download and will appear on their forthcoming full-length album CHARM UP!. You'll probably notice a shift from electro-pop to a more organic 60's/70's rock-tinged sound, a result of brothers Charlie & Petie Brooks working with a full band this time around. You can catch the gang live on Friday, April 29 at Boot & Saddle with The Dove & The Wolf and Myrrias.


New Track: "Orion" (Live) - Tapes & Tubes

Recorded live at W/N W/N, this take of “Orion” by Tapes & Tubes (a.k.a. Austin Potter) paints a historically nostalgic portrait of a town that’s been rundown by time. Catching a bird’s eye view, the brief scene is a reminder that a simple setting still carries a deeper story. Tapes & Tubes will bringing his poetic verses to Ortlieb’s on Thursday, April 28, with Patrick Mansfield, Lauren and Paddy, and Thick Red Wine.


New Music Video: "I Can't Live Without Your Love" - A Sunny Day in Glasgow

A creepy, hostile scenario engulfs the group in A Sunny Day in Glasgow’s new video for “I Can’t Live Without Your Love”. The band is taken individually off the streets under duress, and forced to perform by a masked man. The identity of the unknown assailant is eventually revealed toward the conclusion.

New Track: "Sweet Wife Life" - Son Step

Featured on their forthcoming full-length album Natural Majique, Son Step's new single “Sweet Wife Life” offers a cozy melodic warmth, as keys and percussion cruise, roll and lift the soft, harmonious vocals, maintaining a rhythmic course with an experimental-pop stretch. With the album due out on May 27, the band is already set to head out on a tour. However, you'll be able to find them in Philly this Friday, April 22 at Magic Gardens.
