PREMIERE: Sea Fuzz - "Garuda Dreams"

*photo by Eric Evans

All the little bits of sunshine we've the last couple days have been absolutely amazing, but the newest video and album from our favorite sunny shoegaze/ocean grunge outfit Sea Fuzz makes this Vitamin D daze we're all in even better.

The perfect follow up to 2015's self-titled EP, Sky Gazing is just the record we need going into the warmer months, boasting sounds reminiscent of rocking out to crashing waves while relaxing on the shoreline. Take the first single and video to come from the album, "Garuda Dreams," a gazed out track heavily led by forceful drumming and chaotic cymbal hits as an example. The track's light drenched sound is due in part its mixing, with the Om's drummer Emil Amos contributing to it.

"For this song, I was privileged to seek out the help of one of my favorite musicians of all time, Emil Amos, to help with the mixing and mastering," says Ben Heckler, the soul of Sea Fuzz. He goes on to say: "I gave the track to Amos and he completely transformed it, adding the perfect amounts of lo-fi grittiness to the vocals, guitar and drums. He really understood the aesthetic from the get-go and he knew precisely what the song needed to remain heavy and powerful, yet dreamlike."

Watch the trippy video for "Garuda Dreams" below. Sea Fuzz will be playing some shows locally and in Europe in support of Sky Gazing, out on Spirit Goth. Stream the album on Sea Fuzz's Soundcloud and Bandcamp pages.

Weekend Warrior, March 17 - 19

Winter seems to be a final attempt to assert its authoritative force. Despite this recent and lingering development, there is some good news The Love Club has awoken from hibernation, and will emerge this Saturday evening at PhilaMOCA. Mitch Esparza, Kyle Press and co. stretch sonic boundaries, experimenting with raw blues-garage sensibility. A steady stream of bruising rhythms and powerfully persistent guitar riffs curate the potent, engrossing onslaught of heavy, otherwise known as Hound. This local pairing lay the groundwork for a tandem of Canadian outfits. A gravitational punk-feel compounded by a psych-prog capacity that brews and brims letting the instrumental threads to matriculate in weaving fashion, heralded low profile stalwarts Simply Saucer, headline traversing a wide terrain from a simple, sticky pop-inflected songs to adventurous expansive treks. Free-floating in an airy psych-pop abyss, Poppy Seed & the Love Explosion, set the table. (Photo by JUMP Philly) - Michael Colavita

New Evil Sword LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Evil Sword’s musical progression bears a resemblance to a time-lapse video of fungal growth or of decomposing animals; they both demonstrate within the same frame – bloom and decay – a grotesque beauty that operates slightly askew from what people expect from the art they consume. Evil Sword consists primarily of Kate Ferencz and Ben Furgal, who are sporadically accompanied by a roving cast of musicians and sound artists. An Eerie Fire Eats the Brain is Evil Sword’s first full-length album. Punchy bass, thundering percussion, and pan flute enshrine Ferencz’s vocals like an ill-fitting but well-suited costume. The LP is available as a double cassette box that houses the collection of songs and a full color book of art and writings. The group recently celebrated the album’s release with a show at PhilaMOCA, and they’ll be performing next in Philly on Wednesday, March 29 at LAVA Space.

Pysch Andre Salvador and the Von Kings drop two new tracks

Andre Salvador and the Von Kings, aka Brooklyn-based Tim Cheplick (and friends), are crafting tasty psych/indie tunes that feel modern and foward thinking rather than reflective. The project just released two new tracks that showcase the group's strong songwriting sensibilities and pop prowess. The A-side to the release, a bouyant tune called "Quarter Century Girl," features strident, driving piano chords and delicious slide guitar playing paired with Cheplick's silvery vocals--a decidely radio ready track with a hook primed to be your next earworm. Listen to the band streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni

Buzz Alert: Evolfo releases gritty, dynamic garage track "Vision of Sin"

Brooklyn-based Evolfo plays garage rock with the sort of heart, grit, and flourishes you'd expect from a group of vinyl store junkies with a massive b-side collection. The band, an ensemble of music school students who orginally united--to much acclaim--in Boston, plays like a well-currated list of late 60s-70s cult hits. Their songs are dynamic, visceral, infectious, and immediately compelling. Take a listen to their recent release, "Vision of Sin," streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni
