New Northern Liberties LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

A menacing psych/hard-rock heaviness engulfs on Parallel Hell, the latest LP from Northern Liberties. Spirited vocals and a relentless rhythm section create a consuming, contagious sound. It's been over a decade and a half that Renaissance man Justin Duerr has been releasing material via this creative outlet. Duerr continues to demonstrate how he's an unflinching, uncompromising musical force of nature in the Philly underground.

   

Weekend Warrior - September 13 - 15

Simple Pleasures, the debut EP from Sheena, Anika and Augusta, is out now via Asian Man Records. The trio is kicking off a run of dates with a matinee show this Saturday at Ortlieb’s. Sparse, folk instrumentation pairs with succinct, sincere songwriting, creating memorable imagery. Each song provides a glimpse into the artists’ intimate experiences. Weaving their vocals into a crackling fire of harmonies as the acoustic guitar and strings simultaneously knit elegant, sonic patterns, these recordings provide perspective, while evaluating situations in both the past and present. Hemming, The Goodbye Party, and Jordyn Occhipinti, as well as poetry from Sean Kearney, will also be onhand to support this Home Outgrown Presents afternoon. – Michael Colavita

Squiggly Lines - Dream Pop Single "Dragonfly", New Album 09.21

Squiggly Lines is a mysterious indie pop band from Toronto. Their latest single is a dreamy pop track titled “Dragonfly” which is, in their words “a song about bugs”. This track has somber tones and rather sad lyrics about missing a person all the way in Montreal at first before kickin’ in with a more upbeat B section. The melancholy sound of the verse still has a comforting feel to it. I hear some Homeshake vibes in this tune. Squiggly Lines has a new album being released on September 21st. – Kris Gies
