Philly Sings Philly All November Long

- When the summer-loving citizens of our fair city begrudgingly breakout itchy scarves and wool hats, the music community retreats to a practice space and quietly rejoices. November – and the 4th annual Philly Sings Philly event – are nearly upon us. At the heart of Philly Sings Philly is the desire to explore our peers’ music, past and present, and the storied musical legacy of our city. As tradition goes, our hometown heroes will gather at The Fire every Tuesday in November to pay homage to their idols, adding a personal touch to their favorite songs by Philly-born artists. This year, the event has further expanded with new bands, fresh faces, and weekly curators.In an effort to make this year’s PSP a true city-wide music sampler,the curators include the masterminds behind a burgeoning label, an independent music blog, and a successful house concert series. Bringing in different fans and different bands to the event seemed to be the best course of action to really celebrate the vast musical wealth that Philadelphia has to offer. Joining the fray are American Diamond Recordings, the new collective headed up by Marley McNamara & Ron Gallo, Sofar Sounds: Philadelphia,who are celebrating their 3-year anniversary, and indie blog Root Down In The Shadow. The full lineups will be announced each week, prior to the shows. But don’t miss out on Hezekiah Jones & Mason Porter starting things off in week 1, Cold Roses & City Rain during week 2, Kuf Knotz and Sean Hoots during week 3, and DRGN King and Pine Barons on week 4. To get ready for PSP 2014, look out for a download recorded during PSP 2013, provided by the folks at the Fire. All attendees of this year’s event will get a special BONUS download! Week 1, November 4th Philly Sings Philly Alumni Week 2, November 11th Curated by Root Down in the Shadow Week 3, November 18th Curated by Sofar Sounds: Philadelphia Week 4, November 25th Curated by American Diamond Recordings Brad Hinton, founder, is available for questions at phillysingsphilly@gmail.com and 267-250-5765.

Thalassas is Prog Rock Perfection

-  Thalassas, the new album from In the Presence of Wolves, is one of our most anticipated releases of the year New Jersey band In the Presence of Wolves has been taking the Jersey-Philly prog-rock scene by storm. This band first formed in 2009 and became a hit in the prog-rock scene by 2012. The four piece has performed at places the TLA, The Trocadero, and Kung-Fu Necktie. The band is debuting their new album Thalassas at their release party on November 29th at the North Star Bar in Philadelphia. The full length record is set to come out on December 2nd. Thalassas features eight tracks, include a three part song sharing the album title. In my opinion, this band is the epitome of prog-rock/metal but with their own unique jazzy flare added to it. The vocals, which I would call alternative sounding, mesh perfectly with the progressive rock/metal undertone of the instruments. The seven-minute long track “Hypoxia” starts out as a soft rock song with meaningful lyrics but strikes you with bursts of hard rock. Another great track off the album is “Birdsong.” This track shows the bands uniqueness and versatility with their sound. Like “Hypoxia,” it starts out soft and eventually picks up. “Birdsong” has extremely relatable lyrics and in my opinion, shows off the bands instrumental talents more than any other track. If I had to compare these guys to another band, it would probably be a combination of Mastodon and Incubus but much more unique. If you’re interested in hearing what In the Presence of Wolves is all about, check them out on Gashouse Radio, or at The Legendary Dobbs on October 31st, The Wild Bull on November 7th, or the North Star Bar on November 29th for their release party. Give them a listen, you won’t be sorry.     http://www.reverbnation.com/inthepresenceofwolves https://www.facebook.com/InThePresenceOfWolves  

Featured Band of the Week: The DeFused

-   October 27, 2014 South Jersey’s best alternative, The DeFused, is this week’s featured band. It’s nice to see a band who doesn’t take themselves too seriously. The DeFused does just that along with catchy beats, memorable lyrics, and the occasional cow bell. Besides, who wouldn’t love a hot female drummer? But, sorry guys, she’s already married to vocalist Christophe LaFrancis, and in my book those two have won the award for most adorable couple. The DeFused released their first full length album, Autumn Tree, in early 2014. As a result of all the positive feedback received, The Defused joined forces with Philly band Magnificent Birds of Prey for a September split EP. Don’t have any Halloween plans? You can catch both of them playing Creep Fest II, along with The Lost Will Follow and Zymotic Flow, at Shady Katies on November 1st . Grab a free shirt, listen to some great music, and dance the night away. Autumn Tree is available for download at http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/TheDeFused, and don’t miss The DeFused at the beginning of every Gashouse Live (weeknights 6pm ET). If you like what you hear, show some love and use the thumbs up/down button to voice your opinion. Happy Halloween everybody!
