New Track: "Now & Then" - GrandeMarshall

Produced by J. Money, "Now & Then," the fresh single from GrandeMarshall slows things down, evaluating the transitions in a relationship that has potentially gone sour. Backed by a candlelight beat, memories are dissected, and a lingering sense of regret/resignation hangs overhead. You can find "Now & Then" as part of Throwed Mind's upcoming compilation.

Weekend Warrior, September 16 - 18

I love getting to see talented artists for free! Now, nothing is ever really, truly for free with corporate-sponsored events, but I’m cool with giving up my junk email (you know you have one) for a day of performances by gifted, homegrown Philly acts. This Saturday afternoon at The Piazza at Schmidt’s Commons, Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey has recruited local up-and-comers Tunji Ige, GoGo Morrow, and Anthony Somebody (of Quite Hype) for a block party to celebrate our city’s neighborhoods. And though she no longer lives here in the City of Brotherly Love, I have definitely mad love for Santigold, who is (in my humble opinion) one of the most underrated contemporary artists of our time. If you’ve never experienced her live, then do yourself a favor and make sure to make it happen. Santigold effortlessly destroys (like it ain’t no thang) every time she hits the stage. Masterfully combining music, visual art and choreographed dance, in a way that would certainly impress my spirit animal, David Byrne, I always feel like the happiest/baddest motherfucker alive each time I walk/dance out her show! That’s why I make it a point to never miss her when she’s in town, and you shouldn’t either. The Piazza at Schmidt’s Commons, 1001 N. 2nd St. #21, 2pm-7pm, Free +1 (w/RSVP), 21+ - Q.D. Tran

NAH Opening for Mykki Blanco at PhilaMOCA Sept. 15

Menacing, bombastic beats that authoritatively engulf their surroundings, shifting the dial in a raw-real street style that hits now while pointing toward the future, NAH smacks with sonics. While percussion consistently asserts its presence, atmosphere-altering, electronic sequences illustrate the morphing, combative setting in which this music resides. Simultaneously meshing dark, dramatic structures with dance grooves tying in a sense of torment with vocal aggression, the results are an ear-popping, edgy, experimental brand of hip-hop. Tonight at PhilaMOCA, he lays the groundwork, at this R5-presented show, for Mykki Blanco, whose debut solo album Mykki will be released tomorrow.

A Deli NYC Video Premiere: Googie - “Big Mouth Arcade”

Pair up Jimi Hendrix's penchant for psychedelia and Luda's gravelly inflection and you get a close approximation to the Jersey-cum-Queens rapper affectionately known as Googie. Prolific member of the intrepid Karma Kids label, Goog's newest album ‘Tis What ‘Tis builds on an already impressive catalog of work with a tighter, more polished, and enthralling release. The Deli is proud to premiere his new video for “Big Mouth Arcade.” Produced by Blockhead, this banger is a glimpse at his mania via the streets of his West New York neighborhood. ‘Tis What ‘Tis is available here. - BrokeMc
