Schlotman’s New Single “Bang Bang” Hits Hard

We are pleased to debut the new single “Bang Bang” from Schlotman, off their upcoming album Animal Glamour (another success brought to you by Tiny Telephone Studios). Pair this bad boy with their other single, “7-11 Jesus,” and we’re pretty confident that 2019’s album will be on par with 2018’s Future and ‘17’s On a Rope. More like on a roll. Lucas Nevrla’s vocals are lovely as ever (somewhere between Jeff Buckley and Julian Casablancas) and though this track has a sadder feel than a lot of their other songs, we’re kept from crying by those winding melodic riffs, the warm reverberating hum, a taste of grunge and just a little psychedelic guitar. Lines like, “Baby blue, all I want is someone to do bad things to” get stuck in your head as much as the melodies. Tasteful mixing and mastering by Brandon Eggleston and Chris Hanzsek, respectively. We can’t wait to see them live, February 12th at The Gilman and stay tuned for that January 29th full album release. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor





New Track: "Rescind" - Yarrow

A Mild Circus, the debut EP from the trio of Yarrow (which features member of Great Weights an King Azaz), is slated for release on February 15 via Get Better Records. Its lead single, “Rescind,” opens by initiating a sense of a noise-accented tension. Pointing out the misplaced malice of those dispersing negative actions and attitudes, it notes the clear discrepancy in ideological goals and perspectives between the aggressors and their victims. You can find Yarrow this Thursday, January 17 at Hubris House, as part of a lineup that also includes Absinthe Father and Fox Hollow.





Quay Dash takes what's hers at All Girl Trap/Rap Party (Baby's All Right 01.18)

On her 2017 album Transphobic, Quay Dash proclaimed herself to be the "Queen of NY", and that's a title we're not going to argue. Hers is one of the most visionary new voices in the New York rap scene, and watching her evolution from her debut to last year's single U.A.F.W.M. can only be described as breathtaking. Quay Dash may have taken notes from the classic bravado of New York artists like Lil Kim, but the musical world she inhabits is all her own: the adrenaline-spiking beats and chilling effortlessness of her delivery are unmistakably hers, trophies of the hardships she's overtaken to get here. On January 18, Quay Dash will join JADALAREIGN, Dame Luz, Mother Mary Rose, and Na$h at BBYGRL at Baby's All Right: All Girl Trap/Rap Party to celebrate women in hip hop - so you'd better clear your schedule. - Sunny Betz 





Cindy Cane brings the goth rodeo to Baby's All Right residency 01.27

The music of Cindy Cane defies classification - in listening to the singles off frontman Tom Lescovich's upcoming EPs New York Strangers and all my ex's live in bushwick, you can find yourself leaping between murky electronica and yearning folk, all with a backbeat of the expressive rawness Lescovich is so good at cultivating. The music of Cindy Cane may span many genres, but it all stems from a deep love of country music. While it may not sound very country, tracks "The Darkness" and "Let Me In" brilliantly reflect the genre's penchant for laying emotions bare. Cindy Cane landed a rare four day residency at Baby's All Right starting on January 27, so check out their music below, and wear your best cowboy boots! - Sunny Betz





Weekend Warrior, January 11 - 13

Seagulls first capture our attention with the graceful melodies and textured soundscapes found on the group’s debut Great Pines, The Deli Philly’s September Record of the Month 2014. The LP was later picked up by Yellow K Records and re-issued. Today, it’s long-awaited follow-up is out now via Evergreen Prefecture/Honest Face Records (and is available on a thumb drive, packaged like Sega Genesis cartridge). “Thrown Voice​ is an album about communication - interpersonally, with the environment, within one’s self - and the way that technology can facilitate or get in the way of those interactions. It’s a follow-up about the importance of following up.” Once again, Matt Whittle and friends demonstrate their musical talents, masterfully crafting a timeless sound for the modern age. Feel free to come and experience plenty of feels tomorrow night at PhilaMOCA, where Seagulls will be holding their album release show, supported by friends Spirit Haus, Queue, and URBVN. – H.M. Kauffman
