New Videos: Red Room Series - Thee, Idea Men

The straight-ahead blues-rockin' stomp of quartet Thee, Idea Men teamed up with Sleepless Sound to record a session for its Red Room series. The band takes little time building up that spiraling sound that’s raunchy yet right-at-home jamming with intensity. They’ll be at Milkboy Philly tomorrow night as part of Communion: Philadelphia, which also features Allan Rayman, LoLo, Mothers and DJ sets by John Vettese.


Satellite Hearts Residency Kickoff at Ortlieb's Feb. 3

Satellite Hearts begin their month-long residency at Ortlieb’s tonight, headlining a lineup that’ll help you get over the hump. The trio unites a myriad of rock-based styles - one that oozes the humid warmth of surf-psych and marries it with steady attitude, asserting heavier rock side.  They can sit in a slow-cooking simmer, and then crank up the burner to really get things going.  As we await the release of their new album via Randm Records, The Lawsuits bring their custom blend of bluesy-Americana, while the surf-punk pairing of Coin Purse (former Toy Soldiers Matt Kelly  & Dom Billett) and the soul-infused rock of Kirby & the VibeTribe kick this night into action. Ortlieb’s, 847 N. 3rd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita


New YIKES the ZERO EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

We had been told that YIKES the ZERO had a new album in the works, but after running into the local emcee/producer this past weekend, it seems like the release needs a bit of tweaking, and has been delayed. However, YIKES did just surprise us with Witches Brewskies & other lost tapes. Its a collection of unreleased material that was recorded during 2004 to 2012, and you can spin the tracks now for the first time below.


New Track: "Fuselage" - Banned Books

Philly experimental noise-pop trio Banned Books has a new self-titled release coming out on February 23 via Ramp Local. The album was recorded in four days at Gravesend Studios with Ava Luna's Carlos Hernandez and Julian Fader. Here's a taste of it with their latest badass single "Fuselage."


New Church Girls EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Thousand Lives, the new recording from former Deli Philly Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner, Church Girls, is alive. Take a listen to the smooth sincerity that navigates through moments of folk into straight out rockers and back again. Then, catch the quartet Friday, February 19 alongside Madalean Gauze and Queen of Jeans at Johnny Brenda’s. (Photo by Charlie Wrzesniewski)
