New Track: "Breakfast Loops" (Feat. Quelle Chris) - Torito

Fabric Scraps, the forthcoming album from Torito, is slated for release on January 12 via local label U Don't Deserve This Beautiful Art. Accompanied by Quelle Chris, the bull’s smooth, relentlessly charismatic rhymes jumps off a runway of jazz piano on his latest single, "Breakfast Loops". The tale intricately connects an array of subjects in a flash, so quick that if you blink, you’ll get lost in its lyrical dust. Catch Torito's album release celebration (with support from Lt Headtrip, The Karma Kids, JE Double F, Sol Patches, Ronnie Vega, and The Hell Hole Store) on Saturday, January 13 at LAVA Space!





Nervous Dater bring their indie pop punk to Bushwick Public House on 01.05

Nervous Dater gives us the best parts of early 00's pop punk (the energy and fun) minus the worst parts (the whiny vocals). Guitars get big and the lyrics tell stories of bad decisions, broken friendships, and feeling like a hot mess. Singer Rachel Lightner carries most of the band's tracks as if she's gleefully marinating in life's ugliness over the band's fun, catchy rock. They released full length "Don't Be A Stranger" in September 2017. Favorite lyrics: "It's hard to ask for help if you don't really want it / passed out on the train in your own vomit", "I still dress just like I'm sixteen / and I still get way too drunk during the week", and the shimmer of hope: "I'm so fucking lucky / you're so fucking lucky". They play Bushwick Public House on Friday, January 5th. We are looking forward to seeing what this band does in 2018 as their tour date book already has them playing Pouzza Fest in Montreal in the spring. - Meghan Rose





“No Dogs Allowed” is the delightful new album from Boston’s Sidney Gish

Since her first release in 2015, Sidney Gish has put out four full length albums, an undeniably impressive feat for a 20 year old undergrad student at Northeastern University. Her latest album, the delightful No Dogs Allowed, is every bit as charming as her previous releases, but with a noticeable edge up on production, a task that Gish undertook single handedly. At its core, No Dogs Allowed rivals the songwriting prowess of any (Sandy) Alex G record, and shines with its endearing, twee characteristics, reminiscent of a signature K Records release. Gish could surely make Calvin Johnson crack a smile. -Charley Ruddell





New Track: "California Dreamin" (The Mamas & The Papas Cover) - Japanese Breakfast

In the midst of this deep freeze, one may be eyeing warmer climates. In that vein, Japanese Breakfast recently re-imagined The Mamas & The Papas' classic “California Dreamin” as part of a SiriusXMU session. This take hauntingly awakens, accompanied by synth, before the beat hits. Then, a sleek groove takes over, and vibrant guitar sets it off as the warmth and reassurance of vocal harmony warms the soul. Japanese Breakfast is scheduled to return to Philly on Sunday, June 3 at Union Transfer.





Pale Lights release video for latest single "Jean, Bring The Flowers"

Brooklyn's sparkle-indie group Pale Lights ended 2017 on a productive note with the release of their LP The Stars Seemed Brighter, which has gained a good amount of praise since its unveiling. Frontman and songwriter Phil Sutton delivers poetic lyrics over Andy Adler's mellifluous guitar and Lisa Goldstein's subtle drums, while Suzanne Nienaber provides the summery harmonies in the background. That sunny feeling comes through in the music video for "Jean, Bring The Flowers" (streaming), a homemade four-minute capture of impromptu backyard jams while relaxing with friends in the sunshine. While you wait for the winter cold to pass, warm your ears and eyes with the video for "Jean, Bring The Flowers" below. - Will Sisskind
