Sludge Out for Human Rights Tomorrow

Heavy times call for heavy measures. One of the heaviest measures we can take to combat the bountiful amount of bullshit in this country currently is by hitting up the sixth annual Ceremony of Sludge, taking place tomorrow at the High Water Mark.

This year's Ceremony of Sludge is a benefit for our local chapters of two  Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette and the ACLU of Oregon. Trudge through some brutal sludge with some sets from Witch Mountain, Troll, Disenchanter, Seattle's Year of the Cobra, and a comeback after a two year show hiatus from Lamprey

Every last bit of money made at the door will be donated to both of these organizations, as will funds made from merch by Cravedog and posters drawn by Oddball Tattoo artist Sarah Crosley, so come show some support. Tickets are on a sliding scale starting at $10.

The Deli's Best Emerging Philly Artists: FINAL RESULTS

Dear Deli Readers,
 
We have finally reached the end of the road for The Deli’s Best Emerging Philly Artists Poll. As usual, it’s been a lengthy, exhausting, painstaking journey through an abundance of numbers, band names, and some seriously rad tunes. Now, before we get to our list of this year’s Top Performers, we would like to thank our wonderful, knowledgeable jury of local music experts/enthusiasts (which you can view below), dedicated Deli writers and all those who took the time to check out our nominees and cast their votes. You’re the best, and we wouldn’t be able to do this without you!
 
The Deli Philly Jurors:
Justin Berger (Deathwaltz), Dan Bisogno (Choice Tasters Selectors), Jeff Blinder (Spazz Presents), Gabrielle Bonghi (Philly.com), Kate Bracaglia (Freelance), Eric Bresler (PhilaMOCA), Jessica Craft (Rock To The Future), Katie Duggan (Underground Arts/Bonfire Shows), Shana Hartzel (Swell Tone/Y-Not Radio), Kevin Horn (AEG), Colin Kerrigan (Out Of Town Films), Dave Kiss (Kung Fu Necktie/Flash Mob Productions), Josh T. Landow (Y-Not Radio), Carolyn Lederach (Sofar Sounds Philly), Barrett Lindgren (Johnny Brenda’s/Independent Promoter), Jesse Lundy (Point Entertainment), Gordon Mays (MilkBoy Philly/Bonfire Shows), Jeff Meyers (Boot & Saddle), George Miller (JUMP Philly), Taylor Morganti (The Foundry/Live Nation), Mark Schoneveld (YVYNYL), Jon Solomon (WPRB), Q.D. Tran (The Deli Magazine), John Vettese (The Key/WXPN), Allie Volpe (Freelance), Nikki Volpicelli (Urban Outfitters), Chris Ward (Johnny Brenda’s), Bruce Warren (WXPN, The Key), Brian Wilensky (Freelance)
 
And now, without further ado, CONGRATS to…
 
 
 
Mannequin Pussy’s Marisa Dabice, Thanasi Paul, Kaleen Reading, and Colins “Bear” Regisford had a whirlwind of a year in 2016. The band toured extensively throughout the U.S. in support of their critically acclaimed album Romantic, which was released back in October via Tiny Engines Records. Major media outlets such as NPR, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and Stereogum to name a few have all helped to spread the word, expressing praise for Dabice’s explosive serenity in her songcraft. Mannequin Pussy’s songs of hope, patience, and love have resonated with a wide range of listeners, which has only exponentially grown over the last few years. The beginning of 2017 has already seen the group touring with Joyce Manor and AJJ, and the band has also announced multiple overseas festival appearances in the year to come so don’t expect to see the gang performing anywhere and everywhere in town like you used to, so take advantage of their appearance this Saturday, March 11 at PhilaMOCA, when they support another badass Philly band, Pissed Jeans, at the second of their two sold-out record release shows.

2. Louie Louie (11.005)
 
 
The cliché suggests that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts; that is especially true when applied to a band. The quartet of Louie Louie initially caught our attention because of Emily Robb’s proven track record in bands such as Lantern and Myrrias. And with our ears on alert, the group’s initial single, “Out In The Streets”/“Miles Around,” served as an ideal introduction to their smooth/grit-juxtaposing sound. Louie Louie cast a wave of nostalgia, harkening back to classic girl groups, injecting an assertive, take-the-lead approach with a tenacious, surf-psych gear. Last month, the femme fatales released their debut full-length album, Friend Of A Stranger, via Philly imprint Born Losers Records, and the promise of those initial songs have come to fruition in a polished but potent collection.

 
 
 
The Dove & The Wolf’s Paloma Gil and Louise Hayat-Camard made their mark on the Philly music scene in 2016. The Parisian transplants expanded their line-up into a full band, with the addition of multi-instrumentalist Craig Hendrix (Auctioneer, Mammal of Paradise) and Andy Black (Nicos Gun, Dangerous Ponies), building on their rich harmonic foundations, while sharing bills with notable acts such as The Districts, Quilt, and Japanese Breakfast. Their EP I Don't Know What To Feel, a collection of contemplative and chillingly alluring tracks, was written in part as a response to the terrorist attacks in Paris at the end of 2015. The group was eventually picked up by Fat Possum Records, who will be releasing the album on limited-edition color vinyl later this month. (Photo by Colin Kerrigan)

Jackson Boone Drops 'Organic Light Factory' Today

If you're a fan of trippy lo-fi folk rock much like that of, say, Kurt Vile or Kevin Morby, and you're NOT already listening to Portland's Jackson Boone, you're majorly missing out on some serious misty magic. A natural born songwriter, Jackson has been making music and playing festivals around the country since 2014. Today, he's releasing a new full length and gearing up to hit the road in support of it.

Organic Light Factory was inspired by the continual changes Jackson and his band the Ocean Ghosts experience as a result of their constant songwriting and touring. The songs are like a diary of their journey so far, showing personal transformation as well. "Don't" and "Mystic Winds (from the East)" are all we've heard on it so far, so you'll have to catch the rest of the tracks at the album release show/tour kickoff.

Head over to Mississippi Studios tonight at 9pm to hear the album performed live and in full, say goodbye the band and catch some sets from Cat Hoch, Sinless and Wave Action as well.

Weekend Warrior, March 10 - 12

As one descends into subterranean cement-lined confines of Underground Arts this evening, a cavalcade of the city’s heavy-psych noisemakers will meet you on the inside. Cultivating a cozy temperamental air gently permeating the auditory system with hazy melodies before escalating into the ethereal, Creepoid delivers the calm and then the searing storm.  Speaking of sear, Purling Hiss pummels and rips through a fog-filtered, psych lens, delivering raunchy riffs among unrestrained rhythms. Meanwhile, with their new album, Pleasure Suck, due out in two weeks via Tiny Engines, the disorienting but enchanting surge of The Spirit of the Beehive will be on display. Likewise, the “raw rock fury” of Ecstatic Vision, whose aptly titled forthcoming album of the same name, will be available next month via Relapse, torching a menacing mesmerizing hole in the mind in the process.
 
For those seeking other accommodations, the bombarding, brutal, soul-crushing stomp of Pissed Jeans will celebrate their new album, Why Love Now (Sub Pop), with a pair of sold-out release shows Friday and Saturday at Boot & Saddle and PhilaMOCA respectively.
