Soft Fangs brings his intimate bedroom pop to Cake Shop on 8.13

Soft Fangs is the lof-fi bedroom pop recording project of singer-songwriter John Lutkevich. His debut album The Light was recorded in the attic of his childhood home, to be then released in March via Exploding in Sound Records and Disposable America. Its lo-fi quality and melancholic vocals breed a warm and intimate atmosphere born from Lutkevich’s desire to alleviate life’s struggles. Evoking the vulnerability of Elliott Smith and atmospheric sonic inclination, Lutkevich wears his heart on his sleeve when talking about growing older, being unable to find a job, and waiting around for someone to love you back. His vocal delivery is desolate, and sometimes borders on a whimpering tone, however, when paired with the tender guitars and lush instrumentation, his songs can provide a cathartic release. Soft Fangs will be playing at the Cake Shop on August 13th and the Throne in Brooklyn on August 19th! - John Honan

NYC Record of the Month: Sleepies - 'Natural Selection' LP

After four years, Sleepies are back with a new full length entitled Natural Selection, released on July 16th via Mirror Universe Tapes. The record marks a definite shift for the band towards late '60s British psych. The opening two songs 'Chips Left' and 'Genetic Cousins' (streaming) toy with melodies reminiscent of unforgotten madman Syd Barrett, but fill up the sonic spectrum with a tense and fuzzy blend of garagey distorted guitars. Following song “All Over The Years” follows recycles Parquet Courts' "Nu-Post-Punk" sound (a recurring influence), although the spacey chord changes never fail to remind us the psych nature of this work. Delirious power-track Sky Chase is filled with urgency and intriguing vocal arrangements, while pushing the saturation of their garagey sound to eleven. Throughout the album, the guitars always lay the groundwork with threatening tones and riffs, but this tension is constantly resolved through memorable choruses and vocal melodies - for a satisfying listening esperience. - John Honan

Weekend Warrior, Aug. 12 - 14

The lovely lo-fi bedroom rockers of Cherry, a.k.a. Russell Edling, will be filling the airy spaces of Everybody Hits tonight. His sound is placidly expressive and sweeps through introspective, somewhat dispirited soundscapes on a strikingly even keel. You can also witness Philadelphia’s favorite weirdo rockers Mumblr, back in action for another zestful, dizzyingly energetic performance. The band has made a name for itself in sweaty, dingy basements across the city with its anthemic pop-punk flair and intense live performances. Sporting a fresh catalogue of newly released material, now is a great time to see the band strut its stuff and turn up a little. Chicago’s Yeesh will be rolling through town with their aggressively mystifying post-punk a la Wipers or early Wire. Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 8:30pm, $5-$7, All Ages - Bryce Woodcock

New Deer Scout EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

You can catch Deer Scout’s tape release at PhilaMOCA on Thursday, August 18 with Kississippi, Fits, and Boosegumps. (Photo by Amanda Silberling)
