New Two Piece Fest Compilation Available for Streaming

Twenty-two pairings will perform at the 10th annual Two Piece Fest, being held on Saturday, February 25 at First Unitarian Church. That’s quite an extensive billing, so one might not be familiar with all these duos. However, the good folks of the fest have created a compilation, providing a sampling of each band involved, which you can stream below. Explore the artists one might not be familier with while simultaneously listening to an organized but varied playlist. Give it a spin to get geared up for Two Piece Fest X!

New Track: "Grad School" (alt. version) - Joy Riding

In continuing support for the ACLU, Joy Riding released an alternate version to "Grad School," a song which will be featured on their forthcoming full-length album, due out this spring. Coupling opposing lyrical ideals versus realities, the track tackles the obstacles of adulthood. Steadied by the pop and bump of rhythm and the subtle electric charge of guitar, the words echo, bouncing off the inner mind while the daily page turns. It’s an isolating recollection of where one is - relative to their dreams.

New Music Video: "Cops Come Looking" - The Spirit of the Beehive

Federico Casanova sequences a set of dim imagery in the video for “Cops Come Looking” by The Spirit of the Beehive. The song is the latest snippet from the band’s forthcoming album, Pleasure Suck, scheduled for release on March 24 via Tiny Engines. The video exhibits a desire to hide and/or escape. Movement via flight or automobile serves as a common thread with variations of swimming providing a twisted framework. The Spirit of the Beehive will be performing next in Philly on Monday, February 20 at Baird Mansion Atrium with Naomi Punk, PC Worship, and YCIB.

New Shelf Life EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

More of Double, the latest EP from Shelf Life, stirs, led in most part by strumming acoustic guitar with flecks of keys/electronics. Open honesty compels in an unguarded manner as the lyrics dig deep below the surface. These pared-back songs pull one closer, placing the spotlight on the lyrics and leaving it open to interpretation. The overall feel is endearing. Soak in the delicate melancholy remembrance, and head out to All Night Diner this Friday, February 10, where Shelf Life is slated on a bill that also includes Brittle Brian, Chef Kiss, and Microsoft Saint.
