Rosu Lup Album Release Show at JB's March 20

What began through a Craigslist meet-up between Jonathan Stewart and Josh Marsh has resulted in the creation and celebration of their recently released debut album, Is Anything Real. Tonight, Rosu Lup will be anchoring a Philly-forward show at Johnny Brenda’s after the band took the new album on the road, performing the atmospheric indie-folk tracks from the group's latest effort. The tone of their music shifts from soaring Tom Petty stadium-style rock to blooming, wandering folk with lush arrangements that recall The Acorn and Lord Huron. Jonathan Stewart has a gentle, pleasing voice that, at times, sounds more than just a little like Adam Granduciel from The War On Drugs; not that being reminiscent of one of Philly’s biggest musical exports is a bad thing. Longtime Deli favorites, Levee Drivers, led by the grinding and gritty voiced August John Lutz II, will be warming up the crowd this evening. Rounding out the show is Hemming, the acoustic project of singer-songwriter Candice Martello, who we know from the rollicking and too short-lived project Omar, with drummer/manager Nick Fanelli. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 Frankford Ave., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Adam G.

Providence folk artist Ian Faria plays AS220 on 3/29

A little over a week ago, Providence folk musician Ian Faria released his unabashedly joyous latest album, ‘Animal Songs.’ Starting with the ambling “Raccoon Song,” halved by the elegant “Cassafrass Blues,” and including “Prayer Song” (streaming below), a ukulele-jumped track that features fellow Providence eccentric Edgar Clinks, the technically masterful fifteen-song effort (which follows Faria’s ‘Covers’ album from last year) exudes real-life gravitas while jubilantly soaking in summer joy. Ian Faria plays AS220 in Providnce, Rhode Island on 3/29. – Zach Weg

Carter Beckworth Austin Shows March 24 at Saxon Pub, March 25 at The Scoot Inn

A local with lofty aspirations, Carter Beckworth is picking up momentum as he expands on his Texas country roots by incorporating electric and R&B elements, something you can check out at two upcoming Austin shows. Carter is a proven songwriter that has just completed touring with Cory Morrow, with whom Beckworth co-wrote six new songs off Morrow’s new album The Good Fight. Gearing up for his fourth full album release, Beckworth applies his deft songwriting to genre-bending arrangements, which are on full-display with songs like “Between Now And Then,” which you can check out below. While Beckworth’s songwriting has earned him the ability to share the stage with some of country’s biggest names, his solo album has allowed him to set his very own, very interesting musical course, and it’s also made him one of the city’s to-watch country artists. Take a listen yourself at his March 24 show at Saxon Pub, or a day later on March 25 at The Scoot Inn with Reckless Kelly.
