Punk News: Braid: "Bang"
                                     
June 2014
Thomas Comerford
"II
"
mp3

Thomas Comerford has spent the last three years preparing for his second solo album, II, the follow up 2011's Archive + Spiral. The result is a thoughtful, introspective album filled folk and western sounds and themes. Most of the eight tracks are built from acoustic guitar and deep, rich vocals. The sound and style could be compared to Mike Johnson. Several tracks, "Silt and Dust", "Chrysalis", "Prefer Not To", and others, then build with twang and organic instrumentation into small southern symphonies. This is bedroom meets barroom but at times it swells into larger realms. This is most apparent in "Done and Done" with its lush full band sound. II will be released by Strange Weather Records on June 10th.


This is a preview of the new Deli charts - we are working on finalizing them by the end of 2013.

New S.T.S. EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

"For those that follow S.T.S., you probably know his 3 favorite things, WOMEN, WEED, and what to WEAR." Well, with his latest seven-track EP We Can Talk Politics & World Affairs, Sugar Tongue Slim tackles such topics and more that we tend to shy away from in public conversations. The different look at one of Philly's finest emcees was produced by Grammy-nominated, multi-talented Khari Mateen with a feature from S.T.S.'s favorite collaborative partner, DJ BearOne.

Hurry Opening for Hospitality & Ex Hex at JB's July 23

With their second LP Everything/Nothing on the horizon, the Matthew Scottoline (Everyone Everywhere) led trio, Hurry, heads into Johnny Brenda’s this evening. Bookended by cousins Joe DeCarolis (Psychic Teens) and Rob DeCarolis (Univox), Hurry’s songs almost immediately assimilates to one’s ear. There’s an easy-going nature to Scottoline’s semi-spoken vocals, melding with crisp snap and pop instrumentation, which are given an additional texture by the presence of fiery fuzzed guitar. As we await the new release (whose contents could be showcased tonight), Hurry effectively hovers the threshold of pop-rock, capturing a smoothness that makes your head bob, while retaining a harder edge that keeps listeners on their toes. DC pop-punk trio Ex Hex, who will release their debut LP Rips via Merge Records, bridges the gap to headliners and fellow labelmates Brooklyn-based pop trio Hospitality. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 8pm, $12, 21+ - Michael Colavita

New YIKES the ZERO LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

YIKES the ZERO recently dropped his latest full-length album Yikey The Giant Slayer. The experimental producer/emcee simply doesn't sound like any artist coming out of Philly's underground hip-hop scene, and that's obviously a good thing to us. YIKES will be celebrating the record's release this Thursday, July 24 at Kung Fu Necktie with support from Old Hands, Hang-Up to Flat, and Carl Kavorkian.
