Debut Infinity Dance Complex LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Infinity Dance Complex is a new musical endeavor from Matt Anderegg (Mothers, Body Meat). Their new album, These Rules, is debuting via Philly's own Nino Tomorrow. Still in its infancy as a label, Nino Tomorrow has spotlighted MIDI mastery from contemporary artists like Ada Babar and Kasra Kurt, while also reissuing obscure recordings from Texas-based electronic sound sculptor Charles Ditto. These Rules immediately submerges the listener in an ethereal, tightly wound, rhythmic enterprise, encircling luminescent dreampop. Like listening to a kaleidoscopic funnel of floating dial tones eclipsing one another, leisurely gazing up from the bottom of a fish tank - sonic layers floating in a time independent of one another, working in tandem to contour what becomes a really well-rounded soundscape. On these recordings, Anderegg successfully synthesizes experimental electronic music and airy, overblown vocals within the framework of pop songcraft. The Infinity Dance Complex songs feel intimate and immediate, yet allude to a distance from the listener that almost heightens its appeal. - Josh Kelly

New Track: "Waffles" - Fast Car Slow Car

Breshon Martzell, a.k.a. Fast Car Slow Car, recently shared the project's debut single, “Waffles,” which was produced by fellow Straw Hats bandmate/The Districts' Rob Grote. There’s a playful psych-dream aspect, driven by its wandering keys. The deep vocal tone and the futuristic electro-beats create an oddball, 80's aesthetic. Amid the strangeness, there’s a bright, buoyant bounce to the dance-inspiring recording. Its corresponding video was edited by Braden Lawrence (The Districts/Haggert McTaggert), capturing a kaleidoscope of colors within a home video, with a nod to travelers of the cosmos.

New Suicide Bong Tapes Compilation Available for Streaming & Download

Suicide Bong Tapes recently shared Philly Sampler 2012 - 2018, a collection of songs from the artists featured on the label’s releases. A diverse range of sound/style is distributed. However, the common ground of local/community unifies.

New Orion Sun Mixtape Available for Streaming

Versatile musician, producer, singer Tiffany Majette, a.k.a. Orion Sun, recently shared a side-long sonic quilt, entitled “Test:Experimental Tape”. Fusing familiar hip-hop fragments from such staples as Redman’s “Can’t Wait,” A Tribe Called Quest’s “1nce Again,” Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing),” the mix weaves unreleased songs, and remixes ones left off next year's forthcoming album, serving as a teaser of sorts. There’s a delicate singer-songwriter/R&B vibe as subtle keys and beats intermingle. That ability to intertwine fabric from the past with ones own originality as both an acknowledgement/tribute and origin story is a difficult needle to thread.
