New Lithuania LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Bristling with emotive, etching energy, White Reindeer, the new LP from the trio of Lithuania, rained down on us from nowhere yesterday. Nestling unmasked, personal insights amid turmoil, while finding melodic, finishing points, the album steps into the current of chaos, but sees the potential of clearer skies on the horizon. It forecasts hope in the face of a treacherous storm of affairs, in catchy, pertinent, punk-pop potency. You can find Lithuania at Johnny Brenda’s this New Year's Eve, where they'll be sharing a billing with local pals The Districts and Pine Barons.

Pinkwash Plays Host to Slow Mass at Everybody Hits Sept. 30

Situated along the western edge of Northern Liberties on Girard is batting cage and DIY venue Everybody Hits, who this week will be hosting a stacked set headed by Philly's own Pinkwash.  The duo of Joey Doubek and Ashley Arnwine churns out intensely gripping tunes that are as swift as they are leaden, captivating a wide array of attention in the music community, while finding homes for their releases on labels Sister Polygon and Don Giovanni Records. The band’s name is derived from the term "pinkwashing," which refers to the often unregulated practice of companies aligning their products and brands with cancer awareness and LGBTQ movements without necessarily contributing to those causes. Pinkwash will be joined by fellow Philadelphians Lithuania and Loose Tooth, as well as Chicago-based musical outlet Slow Mass. Slow Mass are currently on tour in support of their new EP Treasure Pains, released earlier this month via Landland. They draw sonic inspiration from associated acts Into It. Over It., My Dad and Former Thieves, while distinguishing their new project as an exciting endeavor with plenty of potential for new material. Everybody Hits, 527 W. Girard Ave., 8pm, $8, All Ages - Josh Kelly

New Track: "Holy Water" - Lithuania

Lithuania shared that they will be back in early 2017 with a new full-length album, titled White Reindeer. Below is the latest taste from the upcoming LP called "Holy Water," which premiered yesterday over at Brooklyn Magazine. It's about “how we often complain about being alone in an era of interdependence and permanent connectivity.” You can get connected with them in-person on Friday, September 30 at Everybody Hits with Pinkwash, Loose Tooth, and Slow Mass.

New Track: "Kill The Thing You Love" - Lithuania

Lithuania recently dropped a new track called "Kill The Thing You Love". The song was originally written during the Hardcore Friends sessions, but ended up not being a good fit for the debut album. Lame-O Records is releasing it as a stand-alone single, and all the proceeds will go to Women Against Abuse. Grab yourself a copy; it's definitely a win-win situation.

Weekend Warrior, May 13 - 15

This weekend is the second annual Love on the Streets Festival. Held at Paines Park, it is an all day festival that supports the Franklin Pains Skatepark Fund (FPSF) in its attempt to spread the love of skateboarding and support urban culture in and around the city. While last year the festival filled the park with circus performers, artisan coffee, and a mess of food trucks, this year is really upping the ante in terms of entertainment. Wahoo Tacos, along with The Electric Factory, will be sponsoring a skating competition, where the lucky winner will take home $2,000. New this year are a couple key cogs that were missing last year. First and foremost, Beer. There was not a beer as far as the eye could see last year. Unfortunately, it will be coming from a Budweiser Beer Garden so you might just want to bring your own. Live art has been added to the mix, with renowned graffiti artists Distoart and Getup to make the festival a multi-sensory experience. Another enticing addition this year is a Flea Market with over 40 vendors selling a vast array of lightly used treasures that are just waiting for a good home.

The music is also a strong suit of the festival once again, bringing both variety and congruity to make for an eclectic but fitting lineup of artists. There is a bit of a punk tinge to this years lineup, with artists like Mumblr, JANK (who have a great new album Awkward Pop Song coming out May 20 on Creep Records), Lithuania (DRGN KING's Dom Angelella and Dr. Dog's Eric Slick), and Steady Hands (a.k.a. Sean Huber from Modern Baseball). Other artists include The Obsessives, Vicky Speedboat, Plainview, Endless Taile, and RFA. For the skate competition and throughout the day, there will be tunes complimentary of Fishtown Beats, Frank Sriracha, and Aurize. All in all, a pretty dope collection of happenings that are sure to be a good time for a good cause. Paine's Park, N. 24th St., 12pm-10pm, Free, All Ages - Adam G.
