New Track: "Now & Then" - GrandeMarshall

Produced by J. Money, "Now & Then," the fresh single from GrandeMarshall slows things down, evaluating the transitions in a relationship that has potentially gone sour. Backed by a candlelight beat, memories are dissected, and a lingering sense of regret/resignation hangs overhead. You can find "Now & Then" as part of Throwed Mind's upcoming compilation.


New Music Video: "The Laughing Song" - Prowler

Archawah, a.k.a. Chris Archibald, takes Prowler’s “What Are You Laughing About?” (which appeared on their Trash Bag EP) for an electronic spin as “The Laughing Song”. The latter is included on their forthcoming EP Hand Disease. The purveyors of space-boogie will be joined by The Fantastic Imagination on Saturday, October 8 at Ortlieb’s as they celebrate the album’s release as well as the band’s signature beer Funky Prowler collaboration with Highway Manor Brewing Company. In the meantime, watch the band's playful semi-animated video by McClept below.


New Track: "In Dreams" (Roy Orbison Cover) - Queen of Jeans

Queen of Jeans were winners of our Featured Artist(s) Poll last fall. One of the many prizes that comes with this honor is free studio time at Sleepless Sound Studio, and we are excited that they have put to good use. Check out the recording of their cover for Roy Orbison's "In Dreams," which appears on the Summer of Sad compilation from Swell Tone & Z Tapes! (Photo by Rachel Del Sordo)


New Walking Distance LP Available for Streaming & Download

A somber yet soothing, melodic haze hangs over as one listens to Remnants of a Spellbook, the new full-length from Walking Distance. The quartet fashions low-key, heady grooves with rough mercurial tendencies. That subdued nature creates an inviting environment, juxtaposed by an ascending embrace of jolting noise.

New Track: "Alligator" - Hello Shark

Vermont transplant Linc Halloran, a.k.a. Hello Shark, is about to release his first album as a Philly native. Delicate is scheduled to drop on September 30 via Orindal Records, a label run by Owen Ashworth (who used to record under the moniker Casiotone for the Painfully Alone and now does so as Advance Base). Below is Hello Shark's latest charming single, "Alligator," which opens his forthcoming LP, produced by Attic Basement's Michael Rheinheime. (Photo by Abi Reimold)
