Busy Bee Abuzz at Tralfamadore Aug. 20

Arcadia student Deb Gilmore, a.k.a. Busy Bee, negotiates intriguing lyrical hikes. Instrumentally led by peacefully calm, acoustic guitar/mandolin, which can make round about moves, changing course in short order after establishing the presumed line, Gilmore makes unique narrative decisions, mixing metaphors in a playful manner, while still engaging in the inherently personal folk spectrum. That ability to cut an image or thought down to its essence or conversely cast an uncommon means of comparison gives her songs a familiar yet refreshing point of view. With a knack for gathering and harnessing emotive momentum that spills forward in an energetic release, Past Life enters the fray at Tralfamadore. The sultry yet haunting vocals of Kelsey Cork and the eerie, ambient experimentions of Gravers Lane aid in shaping this evening's billing, which is completed by Brooklyn quartet The Rizzos. Tralfamadore (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 7:30pm, $6, All Ages - Michael Colavita

Deer Scout Opening for Kississippi at PhilaMOCA Aug. 18

Deer Scout celebrates the tape release of Customs (Fox Food Records) with a show this evening at PhilaMOCA. Dena Miller’s bedroom-folk narratives are depicted through a keenly observational perspective. Those unencumbered recollections place one inside personal memories. At times, she appears to be addressing the listener, while at others, she’s recalling and exploring internal contemplations, flipping the microscope on herself. Enthralling literary lyricism meets the strength and sincerity of vocal delivery, navigating on closely knit intrepid daydream-folk instrumentation, Kississippi grabs one’s attention, refusing to let go. The instantly invigorating power-pop of Brooklyn’s Fits and the synth-infused bedroom-pop of Boosegumps round out this lineup. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $10, All Ages - Michael Colavita

New Radiant Life Perspective LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

While splitting and sharing vocal duties, Bobbie Parker and Ian Bennett of Radiant Life Perspective unite in a compounding beautiful manner. On their latest release Little Things, the duo navigates through an assortment of sounds. While some songs tug on a delicately expressive folk chord, others dash out with an energetic percussive flair, bouncing along to loose acoustic guitar and soothing keys. It’s refreshingly optimistic, in a vibrant open-air melody.

Eric Slick Opening for Ahleuchatistas at JB's Aug. 16

Eric Slick has always held things down on the skins for bands like Dr. Dog, Nightlands, Norwegian Arms, and The Adrian Belew Trio. And with Lithuania, he has certainly been building his comfort level and experience, enjoying the warmth of lights from the front of the stage. Slick recently dropped a new solo track called, "No," a tasty, pop morsel of disenchantment that's off his upcoming album, Palisades. Tonight, he'll be opening for avant-rock Asheville, NC duo Ahleuchatistas and Mary Lattimore at Johnny Brenda's. Also along for the odd, sonic adventure is Shimmer. Johnny Brenda's, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $12, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman

New Music Video: "A Beautiful One" - Former Belle

Zooming in from a universal perspective down to ground level, Jon Lewis creates a simple yet telling animated narrative in the video for Former Belle's “A Beautiful One”. The track is featured on Foreign Bed, which was released earlier this year via Randm Records. The stop-motion images that unfold carry a natural, nostalgic air as Bruno Catrambone (CRUISR) spends quality time in nature with his dog. However, that meteor at the start of the visual excursion provides for an explosive twist at the conclusion.
