New Track: "Mind Eraser" - CRUISR

The day has been dreary, but the music doesn’t need to coincide. “Mind Eraser,” the new single from CRUISR, exuberantly addresses the necessity of moving forward and leaving an individual/situation in the rearview. The pleasant, energetic approach jumps over the emotional/mental hurdles, and dares you to get down rather than wallowing in the downs. Hit that reset button, and enjoy. (Photo by Natalie Piserchio)

New Track: "Honeymoon" - Spirit Haus

Warm keys soften the percussive, head-throbbing blow in “Honeymoon,” the latest from Bruno Catrambone (CRUISR), a.k.a. Spirit Haus. While instrumentally pillowy and comforting, the song digs into the dark elements of one’s mind. Lyrically, the song touches on lingering, emotional distress. While the exact cause isn’t revealed, the presence of anguish persists.

Weekend Warrior, December 30 - January 1

A new year represents aesthetically a clean slate, the chance to turn the page and let the past whether, recent or not, behind. Of course, the past may also hold cherished memories that one wishes to carry into the future. Either way, Saturday night serves as an opportunity to celebrate, for some, the year that was and for others the year that one hopes 2017 will be.
 
Now, my first instinct when I enter any environment is to look and listen; if there’s music, that’s typically a solid forecaster of good fortune. With that criteria, here are a few places one should consider spending the last hours of a trying 2016. 
 
The high-octane ragged barrelhouse blues of TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb will be headlining Boot & Saddle, paired with the earnest Americana of Levee Drivers, and the playfully bizarre, eclectic Mercury Radio Theater. If funky R&B and soul are your aspirations, Underground Arts is the destination. The brass beacon of Balkan beats, known as West Philadelphia Orchestra, and the retrograde soul-funk engine of Johnny Showcase once again come together for sweaty, good time. And channeling the silky authoritative dance-inducing vibes of Byrne & Bowie, MINKA enters the fray, which also starts with the funky instrumental slices of Muscle Tough.
 
The spellbinding folk-psych of Kurt Vile brings his mellow/mercury-spiking spectrum to The Fillmore, where he’ll be joined by psych-folk outfit Woods and Nathan Bowles. Ortlieb’s will host the mobile-layered, grooving, melodic sojourn of Mo Lowda & The Humble, as well as the atmosphere-altering, future-traversing experimentation of Air is Human, and a DJ set from Suburban Living, who will be pulling double duty that evening performing at Franklin Hall with Vacationer and CRUISR. BTW: Speaking of DJ sets, Lushlife will also be occupying the decks at Johnny Brenda’s.
 
Wherever you’re headed, embrace the joy and stay safe. - Michael Colavita

New Tracks: "Take That" & "The Fritz" - CRUISR

Ugh...this weather is shit! But we do have two new tracks from indie-pop faves CRUISR. The fresh and so clean single, "Take That," has the bounce and groove that will find it in someone's soundtrack. And some might remember "The Fritz" from the days when CRUISR still had an "e". Nice to see it making a return!

CRUISR, Cold Fronts, Cheerleader & More at the TLA Sept. 12

CRUISR headlines a show this evening at the TLA, which showcases a triumvirate of locally-centric pop rockers. The quartet fortifies virulent melodies with enticing, penetrating all-inclusive grooves. Those casual, carefree vibes and polished, crowd participation-inducing vocals are just the right recipe for the weekend as one releases the tension and momentarily lets it go. With their highly anticipated debut LP Forever Whatever scheduled for release on October 23 via Sire, Cold Fronts mesh robust, universal pop-rock anthems with stick-to-your-ribs thumping backend and white-hot guitar interplay. The endearing warmth of power-pop Cheerleader sunkisses your ears with rich harmonies and a cozy haze, while the merger of pouncing electro-percussive and magnetizing vocals mesh in New York’s VÉRITÉ. TLA, 334 South St., 7:30pm, $15, All Ages - Michael Colavita
