NJ-based group, Rhea, crafts delicate bedroom indie pop

NJ-based bedroom indie pop band, Rhea, craft songs the ring like delicate love notes--unassuming, but incredible poignant. Featuring soft, feminine vocals and un-fussy guitar ornamentation, there's something immediately compelling about the band's songwriting. Lyrics like "I know that you want me / for my body / but I want you / in a different kind of way" showcase how Rhea's strength is in their symplicity, and their innate ability to tap into something universal, effortlessly.  Check out "3am" by Rhea streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni

Weekend Warrior, April 7 - 9

The world continues its trend of being a chaotic and confusing place. So as the week reaches its tail end, the Pilam Human BBQ XXXIX will be offering a refreshing daylong reprieve this Saturday combining music, eats and whatever your debaucherous heart desires. The noon till midnight billing will include nearly 20 acts in all. Among them, the incisive lyricism of Sad13 delivered on an enthusiastic uplifting danceable platform and the emotive electro-pop/rock of Brandon Can’t Dance, who hovers between a solemn solitude and then swims in a sea of infectious grooves. With a new album Dark Nuclear Bogs set to arrive on April 28, the candy-coated psych-carnival of Laser Background will alter one’s perspective, while the reverberating, relatable melodies of Clique lock into your head as will the spellbinding narratives of this year’s Deli Philly Best Emerging Alt Rock Artists Poll winner, Curtis Cooper.  These are but a small sampling of the lineup, which can view in full HERE, so head over to Pilam for a day of sonic sustenance. - Michael Colavita

Bursting with creativity: Eclectic psych-pop on Poppy Patica's debut EP

The liner notes to Poppy Patica's debut release, Tripping None, claim that the music is a blend of modern experimental pop and 80's pop/punk. However, listening to this EP for the first time I was overwhelmed by memories not of listening to 80's music for the first time, but rather of listening to of Montreal's first album Cherry Peel, released in 1997. What came across to me on this album was the sound of 90s- indie legends like of Montreal, The Unicorns, and Deerhoof/hunter.

From the heart twinging chord changes on “Sink” to the lo-fi buzz of “Top”, this release modernizes some of the best elements of 90's indie pop, and the result is truly wonderful.

A great debut from DC's Poppy Patica.

New Shelf Life LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Christian Coated Ethical Arena, the new full-length album from prolific Philly songwriter/recording artist Scotty Leicht, a.k.a. Shelf Life, negotiates an emotive maze of melody. Jarring, noisy instrumentation surrounds even-keeled vocals, creating a consoling, in-the-eye-of-the-storm sound. A calming pensive but potentially volatile environment takes shape, easing one into a comfortable but ever alert awareness. Shelf Life will be sharing these new ditties at The Pharmacy this evening with Blue Smiley, Fond Han, and Options.
