So Totally (In Love) at KFN March 10

So Totally, the newest hazy nu-gaze band to emerge in the Philly scene, will be headlining a Guild show at Kung Fu Necktie tonight. Their single, "Zoetrope," incorporates the surreal lassitude that typifies bedroom dream pop with the dark tenor of moody 90's shoegaze and the sonic dynamics of grunge. The guitar lines are somber and delicate with occasional gentle pitch dives at the end of a line as the melody falls away. Supporting So Totally will be Soft Fangs, whose sound oscillates from driving, full-bodied shoegaze to gently strummed, minimalist bedroom folk ditties. What remains consistent is songwriter John Lutkevich’s light, whispery voice and distinctly unhurried, lolling attitude of the songs. Brandon Can’t Dance, the side project turned main for Brandon Ayres, will be appearing with his arsenal of guitar-and-drum-machine-loop-inspired dark electro pop tunes. Also joining the lineup is Aphra, whose sweet, instrumentally minimalist but melodically intricate compositions will hit your ears like lullabies for yearning, jaded adults. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $6, 21+ - Bryce Woodcock

New Track: "Brett" - Vita and the Woolf

Jen Pague’s powerful vocals rush forward in booming sonic command on Vita and the Woolf's latest single “Brett”.  Surrounded by an ominous, percussive thump and sinister synth, Pague’s words carry an authoritative weight as the instrumentation gathers strength in a danceable exhibition of force. As we await their new LP, Vita and the Woolf (who are currently on tour) have planted seeds that suggest the album is one, whose bloom we patiently anticipate.

SF Artists on the rise: Hazel English plays The Independent on 03.23

East Bay by way of Australia dream pop aficionado, Hazel English has released a number of singles with the production of electro dream pop artist Day Wave. The musicians met at English's day job and the collaboration started after she played Wave her sensuous, home recorded pop tracks, including a rough version of debut single, "Never Going Home" (streaming). Since the release of that hazy track the duo released a series of well produced, simple dream pop gems that are a promising foreshadow to her (not yet announced) debut LP. Don't miss her show at the Independent on March 23rd. - Jordannah Elizabeth
