Weekend Warrior, April 26 - 28

An adventurous, intricate yet free-flowing, musical atmosphere opens itself up when listening to All Time Present (No Quarter), the new double album from Chris Forsyth. The Philly guitar maestro is slated to perform at a pair of record release shows this Saturday and Sunday at Jerry’s on Front. The record instills a meditative, mystic-oriented aesthetic throughout its ongoing instrumental-led journey. Forsyth tactfully maneuvers across a vast expanse, locking into hypnotic, long-form stretches that exhibit a controlled, cathartic fire - one that continuously burns, flaring up at opportune moments to demonstrate uninhibited, raw prowess. While Saturday’s show with Garcia Peoples is sold out, there are still tickets available for Sunday’s performance, where he will be supported by Poughkeepsie, New York’s Cold Hands. – Michael Colavita

New Track: "Honeypie" - Johnny Utah

A freshly baked single, “Honeypie,” has recently arrived from Jacob Sullenger, a.k.a. Johnny Utah. Immediately jumping into a funky, danceable groove, the track captures a fluid, exuberant sound. Enhanced by the accompanying falsetto vocals, the infectious rhythm demands for you to shake them hips. So press play, enjoy and then repeat.

New Shamir Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Shamir recently shared a new album, Be the Yee, Here Comes the Haw. It's a multi-genre collection of tracks from the multi-talented Las Vegas transplant. These recordings churn in a perpetual motion. The vocals pull in a personal manner, while an omnipresent energy hovers in the periphery. Shamir is scheduled to perform next in Philly at Johnny Brenda's on Saturday, May 25, opening for The Dove & The Wolf.

Caroline Mason Can Keep You Floating

Instrumentalist and composer Caroline Mason has an EP coming out this fall, and she released a new single this past March. The song is called “Floating”, and that's exactly the headspace the song takes you too. Sometimes it can be hard to maintain an ethereal, enigmatic space in a song with a faster pace. That doesn’t seem to be a problem Mason faces. Her voice echoes and floats above the percussion. Fittingly, this effect happens most noticeably as she sings about her feet being on the ground. It’s very easy to connect with the song. Mason is able to control the flow of both your mental intake of the song, and the physical responses your body has to her instrumentals.

Mason is responsible for all the instrumentation on this track. This becomes incredibly clear in the songs music video. The video consists of very close up shots of each instrument - her hands on the keyboard, her fingers on the guitar, her mouth as she sings. Occasionally we get wider shots of Mason, standing on a rocky dessert playing a single drum set, or the camera panning farther away as she strums on her guitar. It’s intimate and disconnecting, without feeling jarring. Check it out below.
