Terra Lightfoot - New single "Norma Gale"

Brand new single from Waterdown native Terra Lightfoot, “Norma Gale” is on her latest album “New Mistakes”. Lightfoot has been around for years but really came into her own on her last album “Every Time My Mind Runs Wild.” She’s an excellent singer/songwriter but also a very underrated guitar player. This tune is about a Canadian woman named Norma Gale who had moderate success in the 1970s Nashville Country scene and while she may not be a household name, Gale was clearly an inspiration for Terra Lightfoot. Her new record is available now through Sonic Unyon Records.  – Kris Gies

New Sandcastle EP Available for Streaming & Download

A meandering melancholy of doo wop, medieval folk, and indie rock, Sandcastle's The Vampire was released at an ever-appropriate time. Featuring contributions from Zach Robbins and Josh Mackie (Dark Mtns, Flight Habit, Sun Organ) as well as Josh Meakim (A Sunny Day in Glasgow, The Fantastic Imagination), the album creates a cautionary sense of comfort, as if something is slight amiss. Sam Kassel and Dan Angel form a bewitching pair. It’s drearily delightful as one slips into the darkness.

The Deli Philly’s November Record of the Month: Amuse-oreille, Vol. 1 - American Trappist

Former River City Extension frontman Joe Michelini’s latest slew of songs is a vibrant tribute to Americana-infused indie rock, romance, and self-determination.

Opening with the effervescent sound of “Soot,” Amuse-oreille, Vol. 1 seduces its listener via visceral guitar licks, yearning, melodic vocals, and straight-forward lyricism. As Michelini and Hemming’s Candice Martello croon, “Things get rough when you don’t know who you are”; American Trappist’s audience is reminded just how vital honesty is, not only with others, but with yourself as well. “Soot” is an homage to self-discovery and the trials and triumphs that go hand in hand with embracing your inner truth. Like early aughts Drug Rug meets The Babies’ Our House on the Hill, the sonic energy of it smolders, with each line reaffirming the track’s pathos with urgency.

“Fear Nothing” gradually swells to a lush and rhythmic ode to the joy that can be found in uncertainty on the brink of new beginnings. Adequately titled, the EP’s second offering is an uplifting, yet practical anthem that urges listeners to seize the day. Giving way to the bouncing keys of “Heaven,” Michelini builds the tale gradually, before it tears away at the seams with distorted riffs and reverb that eventually disintegrate into “Fireworks.” Channeling his inner Springsteen and Walt Whitman, the artist shares what feels like a love song, penned specifically for our beloved Philadelphia. Vibrant, catchy, and the perfect balance between innovation and nostalgia, “Fireworks” is a realist’s portrait of the contradictions, complexities, and brash beauty of the American Dream.

American Trappist’s songs are sincere, subtly sentimental (in a good way), and absolutely memorable. Amuse-oreille, Vol. 1 will fill your heart with warmth and light as fall gives way to winter. – Dianca London

New Friendship Album Available for Streaming

Orindal Records will be releasing Friendship's new album, Shock Out Of Season, on November 3; however, one can sample it early - courtesy of HyperMachine. A continuous flow of introspective, lyrical assessments loosely travels on a road paved with the timely tap and twinkle of percussion and synth, forging both unity and space. A serene sense of progress pushes these compositions forward, without abandoning the earnest imagery that serves as its foundation. Friendship and Power Animal will be co-headlining a dual record release show, supported by Tall Friend and Free Cake For Every Creature, on Friday, November 17 at Everybody Hits.
