New Track: "Lonesome Tonight" (New Order Cover) - The Morelings

The duo of The Morelings has released a cover of New Order’s “Lonesome Tonight,” which originally appeared on the album Thieves Like Us. While similar in sound, this version utilizes a combination of keys and delicate vocals, conjuring an ethereal sense of calm. The track is featured on VA - Dreams Never End, A Tribute To New Order, a compilation that is available via TBTCI Records. On Thursday, September 24, The Morelings are scheduled to perform on a bill with Dreambook and Living Hour at Johnny Brenda’s. (Photo by Lizzy Schwartz)

Mary Lattimore Opening for Meg Baird at JB’s Aug. 27

Former Philly native now San Francisco resident Meg Baird will be returning home this evening at Johnny Brenda’s with her new album, Don’t Weigh Down The Light (Drag City/Wichita), in tow. She has tapped the experimental, contemplative sounds of local harpist and Pew fellow Mary Lattimore to lay down the groundwork of what should be an attentive mood for the night. Multi-instrumentalist Samara Lubelski will also be providing abstract drones to fill your headspace. Come out and take in an enchanting evening with a group of talented ladies who have definitely taken the road less traveled in music. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, All Ages - H. M. Kauffman

New Ghost Light EP Available for Streaming & Download

We became big fans of the earnest storytelling of Barrett Lindgren's project Ghost Light. So much so that we invited them to perform at The Deli Philly's Anniversary Bash a few years back. And when we had heard that they had an album in the works but the group had already disbanded, we were promised that the record would still see the light of day in one form or another. Well, it's been years now since we first heard of its existence, but Lindgren has finally kept his word, and you can now listen to the three-song EP ("from a record that never got finished") humorously titled ¯​\​_​(​ツ​)​_​/​¯, which you can stream in its entirety below. It's bittersweet like many of Ghost Light's songs. Enjoy!
