Miles Francis is back with new single + video for "Sophomore Slump"

Back in February, Miles Arntzen a.k.a Miles Francis put out his debut solo EP Swimmers. Today he’s continuing to make waves with the release of new single and music video entitled “Sophomore Slump.”  Francis, who also played drums in Antibalas, is an NYC-based multi-instrumentalist and songwriter who crafts organic, off-kilter pop. Directed by Charles Billot, the accompanying visuals for “Sophomore Slump” find Francis maneuvering dark corridors and bright balloons, surrounded by masked figures in feather boas dancing alongside the song’s jittery melody. Here’s what he had to say on the video’s genesis, “The video is basically a dark funhouse version of my mind. The clutter, the calm; childhood, adulthood; confidence, insecurity - it’s all in there, and I’m surveying all of it.” Watch below! - Sara Nuta

Debut Likes LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Likes is a new musical outfit fronted by Philly's Ada Babar. Babar has been active the last few years with the Ada Babar Band, a split cassette with Palm’s Kasra Kurt, Suffer Dragon, and a whole slew of solo releases. They are also involved with a new label Nino Tomorrow, who recently reissued an obscure 80’s electronic album by the Texas artist Charles Ditto. With Likes, Babar is joined by Gavin O.Wald, Clarke Sondermann, Nat Grandbois, Emly Lyon, TC Helicon, Andrew Lee, and Eve Alpert. New Pedal toes the line between pop eccentricism and total campiness without landing on either side. The album is equal parts goofy and stunning, coming through with the laughs, while also running the listener through a full gambit of head bobbers and glitchtronic freakouts. Take a chance on this curveball, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. - Josh Kelly

Blind Moon

Blind Moon is the heavy psych project of Josh Cohen. Last week he released his latest album, Mind Is A Garden, and below is the video for the LP lead single “Warm Daze”.

The sounds on this album are a blend of ambient, meditative, and psychedelic that will take you on a journey with or without assistance.

You can catch Blind Moon at Cole’s on November 9th with The Knees.

Blood Cultures premiere horrifically enchanting new song + video

It’s hard to imagine “Dunk On Me” without the video, or the video without the song. The pairing, directed by Idle House and Blood Cultures, is outstanding. Drawn in by film grain and a wash of hazy synths and distant vocals, “Dunk On Me” abruptly rushes into a suffocating rush of clanging electronics and gothic imagery as school-age lovesickness develops into horror movie plotline in just over three-and-a-half minutes. The disjointed, experimental approach Blood Cultures takes on the track should reel you in, but with the video it’s an act that’s difficult to turn away from. Watch below. – Cameron Carr

Weekend Warrior, October 26 - 28

Restoring the power to those affected by mass incarceration, flipping the script on systematic racism and violence, Reclaim Philadelphia’s Mass Liberation Campaign aims to promote change focused on unjust policing and in-prisoning practices in Philadelphia, via organization and education developing leaders. Tonight, Everybody Hits hosts a benefit for the MLC - one which showcases artists whose music coincides and reinforces those messages. Sammus articulates a wide spectrum of pertinent issues addressing things from a personal perspective, infusing nerdcore with an unyielding tenacity that will not be denied. Pinkwash cultivates a brutal, melodic punk, in a smash-and-sear framework - one etched in earnest vocal delivery and the release of emotion in cathartic waves of heavy, while Soul Glo unleashes internalized thoughts over the top of potent, instrumental blitzes. And on New Pedal, the recent release from Likes, an experimental, warped, sonic world is on full display. Please come out & show your support for much-needed change! – Michael Colavita
