Weekend Warrior, July 22 - 24

Yikes! With temperatures expected to reach the high 90s this weekend, it makes sense to want to stay near an air conditioner or dip your body parts in the ocean. However, for those music-obsessed folks who are a glutton for punishment and good tunes, WXPN’s XPoNential Music Fest is back once again, across the way at the Camden Waterfront. The festival opens this afternoon with two local Philly acts, the ethereal harmonies of Queen of Jeans and songbird Rosemary Fiki, before giving way to national touring favorites like Father John Misty and White Denim. Kurt Vile & the Violators and Ryan Adams and The Shining will be closing out the inaugural day of the event at BB&T Pavilion. Though we are really not digging the scheduling of their noon set slot on Saturday, Kississippi is a good reason to get an early start on a day packed with music, before hiding in the shade in wait for what are sure to be electrifying sets by Gary Clark Jr. and Alabama Shakes. And while Sunday may teeter off from the excitement of the first two days, Eliza Hardy Jones and The Districts will provide you with plenty of beautiful melodies and memories to get you through the upcoming school/workweek. XPonential Music Festival (FRI - SUN), Camden Waterfront/BB&T Pavilion, Various Times (Schedule), Adults $35(w/membership) - $296/Kids $5, All Ages - H.M. Kauffman

Castles redefine indie with their latest EP

Once you hear the higher pitched croon of Castles' Cody Myers, a nostalgic comfort for the early 2000's will rush over you. A reminiscent mixture of Mae with a bit of older school Dr. Dog and Tame Impala, Castles understand the ins and outs of alternative rock and have shown their capacity to make it easy to love and enjoy, without sounding passé.

Starting in 2014, the Portland 4-piece have released a self titled EP in May comprised of tracks that transport you to a whole other realm sonically. The combination of Myers' colorful vocals with impeccable playing from Eric Wenzel on lead guitar, Adrian Swindells on bass and Tom Wortman on drums make for an overall chill yet stimulating listening experience.

Castles is working on some new tracks and have got a few shows coming up, including one on the July 29 at the Waypost. Congrats on being the new Deli Portland winners, boys!

You might be familiar with two of its tracks, "Alligator" and "This Is A Song About My Bike Ralph And It's Called 'Ralph'," which they put out last month, donating all the poceeds to the PULSE Tragedy Community Fund on GoFundMe. The new record officially comes out July 27, and you can catch JANK this evening at PhilaMOCA opening for Dikembe, Slingshot Dakota, and Timeshares. (Cover Art by Olivia Knowles)

Listen to Emo Quartet Love Nothing's Newest Single "Have A Great Summer (Calgary)"

Beyond vape memes and that seemingly facetious name, Los Angeles' guilty pleasure Love Nothing boasts guitar crunch and drum blasts heavy enough to break your jaw. The mall goth foursome, fronted by guitarist/vocalist Nicholas Waits, stands at the forefront of revived sincerity in emocore, blending Circa Survive's melodic embrace and Dinosaur Jr.'s neck-hanging, pulverizing tone.

Today, The Deli is proud to premiere their newest single “Have A Great Summer (Calgary)”. Love Nothing throws a release show on July 23 in the Valley (have I ever told you about that valley hospitality?) followed by a tag-team summer tour with Berkeley-ites Forget It. in August, with a homecoming show at The Smell on August 12th. Listen to the newly released “Have A Great Summer (Calgary)” below:
