New Slaughter Beach, Dog LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Slaughter Beach, Dog, a.k.a. Jake Ewald of Modern Baseball, recently released a new album, Welcome, via Lame-O Records. One naturally dives head first into narrative depths, exploring the detailed imagery as loose, energetic melodies sustain the drive. These sonic anecdotes resonate, tugging at the emotive core while painting complex, sometimes heavy situations with an earnest, rebounding, "we’re alone in this together" reassurance.

New Track: "Forever" - Slaughter Beach, Dog

Welcome, the new album from Slaughter Beach, Dog, which is led by Jake Ewald (Modern Baseball), will be released on September 30 via Lame-O Records. Its latest single, “Forever” (which recently premiered at American Songwriter), hits a heavier backend start, before a twirling guitar pattern branches out into a set of booming tones. The song negotiates melody along the catchy yet complicated narrative. (Photo by Mimi Hong)

Girlpool's Harmony Tividad Steps Up to the Plate at Everybody Hits March 8

Harmony Tividad (of Girlpool) steps up to the plate at Everybody Hits this evening. With a minimalist, melodic approach, her songs etch an earnest understanding of the transitions and adjustments associated with adulthood. The sheer simplicity and somewhat confessional sound seems addressed to the individual, releasing a revealing internal monologue expressing an array of emotions - anguish, disappointment, hope etc. Exposing these private thoughts publicly gives rise to universal a feeling. With a new record almost completed, Slaughter Beach, Dog (a.k.a. Jake Ewald of Modern Baseball) captures expressively detailed snapshots that shed the protective outer layers, placing the nerves out in the open. They'll also be joined by Cold Foamers, who recently released a new EP Musketball, and the sincere folk-pop of Florist completes a night at the batting cages that hits home. Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 8:30pm, $7, All Ages (Photo by Scott Troyan) - Michael Colavita

Rad Solo Acoustic Showcase at Cosmos Feb. 6

Cosmos, a new DIY show space in University City (Mantua), is hosting a rad solo acoustic showcase of front people from some of the local area music community's up-and-coming acts. You can catch Jake Ewald (of Modern Baseball/Slaughter Beach, Dog) and his humorous yet insightful signature wordplay and storytelling. Field Mouse's Rachel Browne (a.k.a. Anomie) will be there performing skeletal versions of her songs too, which will provide an interesting contrast to her usually lush, textural pieces. Evan Stephens Hall from melodious New Jersey lo-fi quartet, Pinegrove, will be in a uniquely intimate environment, exposing the heart of each tune. Also contributing to this special happening are Hodera’s Matthew Smith and Plainview’s Jeremy Smith. In all likelihood, this is not going to be your typical rowdy house show, well, maybe a few drunken sing-alongs. But one thing is certain; it will be a unique experience. Hopefully the night can offer you a new perspective on - or even new appreciation for - some very talented local songwriters/musicians. Cosmos, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 7pm, $5, All Ages - Bryce Woodcock

Lame-O Records "Rock Residency" Feat. Lithuania, The Spirit of the Beehive & Slaughter Beach, Dog at Boot & Saddle Jan. 7

Tonight is the kickoff to this month's Lame-O Records's "Rock Residency" at Boot & Saddle. It's a stacked lineup where you'll find "hardcore friends" Eric Slick (Dr. Dog) and Dominic Angelella (DRGN KING), a.k.a. Lithuania, headlining the local indie label's showcase. The group's LP was The Deli Philly's September Record of the Month last year, and the duo also recruited drummer Ricardo Lagomasino (Many Arms, DRGN KING) to help fill out its grunge-meets-pop-rock sound. They'll be joined by The Spirit of the Beehive, which includes members of Glocca Morra and Kite Party. The shoegaze/grunge outfit has plans to release a new album later this year via Jade Tree. Popping the residency's cherry will be Slaughter Beach, Dog, the solo project from Modern Baseball's Jake Ewald. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8pm, $8, 21+ - Alexis V.
