Hazy as hell, just the way I like it. Crunchy guitars, droning low ends, and ethereal vocals that dance along the shoegaze genre. Nothing’s latest release, Downward Years To Come, is simply excellent.
Back in my emo/pop-punk days (and everyone had those YOU KNOW.), I was a big Valencia fan. And I wasn’t even from the 215. Recently I was digging through bandcamp and Shane Henderson’s new project popped up onto my radar. There’s slight differences yes, but all of that energy is still there. I can’t say I hate it y’all.
Thank god, indie-(punk)rock is coming back. And Philadelphia’s Modern Baseball is definitely a part of that.
Lo-fi is the key to my heart. End of story. Marry me Radiator Hospital. In short, Some Distant Moon, is a must-listen and I’m sure, a must-see.
I got a little carried away with the indie rock scene, make way for the beat heads. Introducing Small Professor, a hip-hop connoisseur who samples some of the most soulful sounding bits and crafts them into smooth, smooth, smooth beats. Cool Story, Pro, is it.
I guess I can get down with anything tagged as cuddlexcore. But seriously, Philly’s own Catnaps does a great job at creating ultra fuzzy indie pop that surely will tug on the heart strings. I really dug their previous album, Why Don’t You Whisper?, but this newer release definitely moves in a slightly different direction. I really like it.
I’m also a sucker for acoustic. (see what I did there?).
I’m not quite sure who this Gregory Mendez is yet, but I really love what he’s got up on his bandcamp. The guitar work and vocals just fit, don’t they?
Enjoy the quick dip into Philadelphia’s vast and ever-changing music scene.
