Johnny Showcase has a new music video for his track "Hit It From the Back." The comedic funk-soul man and his compadres use the backdrop of South Philly to help pass on their message of love/lust. You can get it from the back tonight when Johnny Showcase and the Mystic Ticket join West Philadelphia Orchestra's Balkan dance party at Underground Arts.


New Music Video: "Double Life" - Work Drugs

Work Drugs has a new summertime jam called "Double Life." It's off the band's forthcoming album, Runaways, that is due out this fall. And in true Work Drugs fashion, the track's accompanying visual aid is lighthearted yet sexy. They'll be headlining Johnny Brenda's tomorrow night with Brooklynites Crush Distance and Half Waif along for the ride.


New Track: "One Time" (Remix) - S.T.S.

S.T.S., a.k.a. Sugar Tongue Slim, has been "in the lab" with DJ BearOne working on another flip for his GOLDRUSH series. The Atlanta transplant shows some adopted-hometown love with his latest remix of local electro-R&B/soul duo Marian Hill's "One Time." His natural flow hits right in the pocket of the tracks groove-enhanced percussion and the original's jazzy brass flares.


New Music Video: "Blue Moon" - The Extraordinaires

With The Extraordinaires, every release feels like an art project. And with the new music video for their single, "Blue Moon," off the band's forthcoming album Dress for Nasty Weather, you find the group tramp-ishly bonding together, creating something that is all at once so heartwarmingly beautiful, strange and romantically timeless. The fellas outdid themselves on this one. It premiered yesterday over at The Key. The Extraordinaires will be celebrating the release of their new record this Saturday at Johnny Brenda's with Grandchildren and Teen Men.


Busses & Rosu Lup Opening for Avers at JB's July 8

Variability - the trio of Busses engages the sonic experimentation with an ear pointed toward the openness it provides, performing songs that stretch the end lines while the core instrumentation remains locked-in pushing fluidly forward. Their latest single “Overload” takes that core groove coupling it with Dave Brett’s gentle, floating vocal arrangement, creating a subtle, drifting out-to-sea effect. However, the group has been known to harbor a heavier harder aesthetic. Tonight, at Johnny Brenda’s, they bridge the gap between harmonious local folk group Rosu Lup, who take that zoomed in intimacy and project it outward, exuding a natural warmth. Having gone through a pair of lineup changes, Rosu Lup is currently working on a full-length LP, which may be available this coming fall. Their performance should offer a preview of that new material. The show is alo headlined by Richmond, Virginia garage-pop/psych rockers Avers, who released their debut album Empty Light earlier this spring. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 8pm, $12, 21+ - Michael Colavita
