The Mysteries

New Mysteries EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Philly's The Mysteries continue further down the Doors rabbit hole with the group's new EP New Age Psychedelic Experiment. Anthony Marchione and company keep things loose as they explore the bluesy music terrain, finding solace in organ work that brings the retro, psych-pop sound to life again. So light up a doobie, and "ride the snake"! ;-)

New Music Video: "Bread Eyes" - The Mysteries

The Mysteries get freaky in the streets (and sometimes the bushes) of Philadelphia in their new video for "Bread Eyes". Sporting the latest in eyewear that seems to be catching on throughout the city, the band provides an odd interpretation of the song's title. It's the lead single from the group's upcoming release, New Age Psychedelic Experiment. The Mysteries will bring their Doors-inspired brand of psych-pop to Johnny Brenda's on Friday, January 20, where they'll be sharing the bill with Ceramic Animal and Satellite Hearts.

Weekend Warrior, January 29 - 31

Bands like Queen of Jeans, who openly subscribe to the long history of girl-pop groups, are a great indicator of how much has changed or remained the same through the years within the canon. The excessively soluble pop melodies and sequences dating back to legendary 60’s acts like The Shangri-Las remain intact, but today are saturated with the textural bliss of 80’s bands like Cocteau Twins. The uncertainty and feels associated with courtship rituals are also still a heavy source of inspiration to this girl group - albeit now such confessionals are served with a smaller portion of melodramatic candidness and a thick glaze of emotionally insulating ambiguity. There are songs that move with a languid, dreamy stride that resonate with contemporary artists like La Sera, who exhibit similar influences. But Queen of Jeans colors their songs with more of a jazzy hue than most bands, who fixate on the 60’s era, which gives their sound a distinct sophistication. They’ll be celebrating the release of their debut self-titled EP at Kung Fu Necktie this Saturday with garage-rock rompers Louie Louie, who are another girl group whose focus is largely on 60’s pop, but they are more concerned with the psychedelic and garage-y side of the decade, which will also be represented by The Mysteries.  Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St, 7pm, $8-$10, 21+ - Bryce Woodcock

The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: The Mysteries

The roots of Philly’s indie music scene have always been influenced by psych-pop/rock outfits like Mazarin, Dr. Dog, and The War on Drugs. So it should be no surprise that you’ll find a group such as The Mysteries atop our Featured Artist(s) Poll. Started by guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Anthony Marchione (and a kiss), you’ll find the band channeling The Doors as well as more contemporary torchbearers of the beloved genres. The local quartet is set to crack open the festivities for this Saturday’s Queen of Jeans’s record release celebration with Louie Louie at Kung Fu Necktie, but first - unlock more of the mysteries of The Mysteries in our interview with Marchione HERE.

Debut The Mysteries Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Bluesy psychedelic four-piece, The Mysteries have issued a self-titled release. With an organ/key-directed spin, this crew is channeling a strong Doors influence, leading the way toward a cavernous setting that is dimly lit and ominous, while surprisingly loose. Venture into the void, and see what you discover.
