Broke For Free (BFF) releases video that’s weird in a good way

Broke for Free (BFF) just released a fun and weird video for their new track “Jibberish (Feat Awon)" and it is a weird and fun trip we won't even try to explain. Mouths all over the place and we're loving it. The man behind the noise, Tom Cascino, says his influences range from Outkast to Tycho, Modest Mouse to Tyler the Creator. He’s an all over the place hip hop eletro pop creator and “Jibberish” is a perfect introduction to his work. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

New Track: "Breathe Out" - Curtis Cooper

Philly's own Curtis Cooper has a new album coming out on June 3, titled Graceful, and you can now listen to its lead single, "Breathe Out," below. The song lyrically depicts how tension and anxiety tend to build and weigh us down. That compounding effect is countered by the bright, jangly guitar and percussive patterns. Then, the warm, vocal harmony relieves in an airy, uplifting manner as the recording opens up. That ability to create complex, vivid imagery and sound, while retaining a personal connection easily grabs one's attention and makes Cooper's next release something to look forward to.

The Weird Years offer a new brand of folk music with their self-titled EP

The few tracks that have been released by the newly formed Brooklyn quartet The Weird Years showcase a unique hybrid of folk music. Employing slowly strummed guitars and vocal harmonies, the group initially shroud their sound with simplicity, dwelling on themes revolving around the march of time and the paradoxical feelings that come with being alone. It's only after prolonged listening that their DNA unravels, revealing a double helix that equally relishes in a slow-burning ambiance. It's an arresting combination which makes their EP deserving to be unpacked patiently. -Tucker Pennington

Field Medic's "used 2 be a romantic" is a bittersweet ode to life on the road (Video)

Life on the road must be as thrilling as it is exhausting. On the video for his latest single "used 2 be a romantic," Field Medic—the stage name for folk-rock songwriter Kevin Patrick—shares a video journal of sorts that capture his numerous touring experiences: the crowd's warm embrace; the backstage banter; the everyday ennui. It's all there—Patrick's daily routine is consumed by night after night of stirring performances and intimate cigarette breaks. "I need a cigarette/ those fuckers talked over my whole set," he sings with genuine candor, strumming a twinkling melody that brightens its otherwise muted country drift.

"Used 2 be a romantic" is taken from Field Medic's latest album, fade into the dawn, which is out now via Run for Cover Records. And while we're on the topic of touring, catch Patrick play a hometown show at Moroccan Lounge on Sunday, June 9. Juan Rodríguez
