Dream Wave translates raw feeling to sound on "Living for Moments of Beauty"

Living for Moments of Beauty is a scattered project, comprising of a couple dominant sounds organized in a stream-of-consciousness flow with no obvious rhyme or reason. Is that a bad thing? Not at all. The album reads like a smattering of bedroom ideas presented as they were conceived; it's a picture of a person at a certain time, free of pretense or pressure. The result is honest, to-the-point, and most importantly, an enjoyable listen. Ranging from guitar-centered soundscapes to Mac Demarco by way of The Strokes, Living for Moments of Beauty is one small taste of a large—and largely unnoticed, it seems—discography. Do some digging. You'll like what you uncover. -Austin Phy

Leagues debut "Dance With Me" ahead of September album release

With a foot in the past and eyes fixed on the future, the newest from Leagues is a modern dance treat dressed in secondhand neon. There are some parallels to longtime local favorites How I Became the Bomb, which is a comparison that can be nothing but flattering. Set to release their sophomore album, Alone Together, on September 9, "Dance With Me" is the first we've heard from the band since their debut dropped back in the long-gone year of 2013. Stream the single below and keep an eye out for that new album when September rolls around. -Austin Phy

Weekend Warrior, June 3 - 5

Tonight at Union Transfer will be Connor Barwin’s third annual MTWB Benefit Concert. The show, which has hosted buzz bands like Mac Demarco and Kurt Vile in the past, has one of its strongest line-ups this year, which includes Philly’s own Hop Along and Waxahatchee. Barwin, who recently signed a new six-year deal with the Eagles, has been a presence both in the local music and parks & recreations scenes since coming to Philly. He befriended R5 Productions’ Sean Agnew, and has cultivated a super positive event. Each year, Barwin has upped his game for the concert, and this year is no exception. There will also be special guest performers this evening (like Blue Note artist Ryan Anthony Massaro ;-). Every dollar that is raised at the show - both from tickets and bar sales - will be matched by MTWB and donated to a new project in Philadelphia. You can get cheap tix or ball-out for an opportunity to drink and schmooze with some Eagles, but remember it’s all for a great cause. Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St., 7:30pm, $5 - $300, All Ages - Adam G.

Residuels & Louie Louie Dual 7" Release Show at Boot & Saddle June 3

Hot on the heels of a series of West Coast dates supporting the Buzzcocks and with The Deli Philly’s May Record of the Month, Love Songs, still fresh in our minds, Residuels hits the stage this evening at Boot & Saddle to celebrate the release of their new 7" "Ordinary" via Born Losers Records, the trio provides an unwavering, primal, garage-rock rumble that's unfiltered, hitting unapologetically, grabbing the wheel, and daring you to hold on. However, not one but two 7” will be commemorated on this night. With vinyl copies of “Out in the Streets”/“Miles Around” (issued via Hidden Volume Records) in hand, the all-female quartet of Louie Louie dose out garage rock with a psych-pop twist. Rolling forward in a determined drive, while also exhibiting a smooth soothing side, the band demonstrates compelling control. The heady cruising psych-rock of Weekender completes this billing. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8:30pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Summer Salt Drops into Their Typically Fun Surfer Groove in "Summer Salt" Video

Austin's local "Would rather be surfing" band Summer Salt has hit the e-waves this last two weeks with their first video from late 2015's excellent Going Native EP, namely for their eponymous song "Summer Salt." True to form, "Summer Salt," and Summer Salt themselves on said track, are, welp, beachy as fuck, and it's in a really fun way that comes complete with a heavy 50s reverby guitar sound that goes 2000s indie in the noodling.

Summer Salt is one of those acts that leaves little to catch on mentally- no politics or hard emotions or attempts at edginess- which is a delightful thing in their case. Their songs, including the one in this video (and the video itself, for that matter), are just fun, relaxing and full of the feel-goods, and as much as we like hard music, you gotta have some of this as well to balance it out, right? Considering that Summer Salt is just damn good at it, and makes their chilled out sounds with thorough artful craft and imaginative talent, we think the answer to that question is an emphatic yes. Check out the video below, and listen to the rest of the EP here.
