New Track: "Leaving the Light On" - MINKA

We think that MINKA is trying to answer the question - "What would The Talking Heads sound like fronted by David Bowie?" - with their latest single, "Leaving the Light On". It's a good question to ponder, and now, we have been given a glorious dance track to set free into the ether. You'll be able to get down to this one and many others this Saturday, October 29 at TJ Kong Halloween Costume Ball Rock N Roll Murdershow VII, being held once again at Underground Arts.

   

New Music Video: "I Want You" - Marian Hill

We could probably never pull off a choreographed dance, but we certainly apreciate when it's done well. Marian Hill enlisted the help of some talented folks to film their music video for the single, "I Want You," at the YouTube Space NY. In one take to boot! Or should we say, "One time, one time, one time"? The performance was directed and choreographed by Ian Eastwood, and you can find "I Want You" on their full-length release, ACT ONE (Republic Records). (Photo by Pablo Amoretti)

   

The Deli Philly's Featured Artist Poll Winner: Miles High

With a moniker born from an episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and a Disco Biscuits show being a pivotal point in the discovery of electronic music for him, producer Miles High has certainly found plenty of inspiration from the City of Brotherly Love. Blending hip-hop beats, influenced by its “golden age,” with modern-day electronica, the emerging local artist assists in demonstrating just how deep and diverse the pool of talent goes in the Philly music community. “Looking to just continue paving a positive path” - Miles High prolifically creates beats, building on his mind-altering catalogue, while working to create a proper showcase for his material in a live setting. Having recently won a heated race in our monthly Featured Artist Poll, we are happy to have a chance to share more info about the up-and-coming producer’s life and work HERE.  

   

Saturday Night Sounds: Schaus - "Galileo's Song"

 Here we find ourselves, yet again, on a Saturday night. Some of us may be out partying on the town while others might be cozily nestled in their beds. For those of us that prefer a personal party at home or may be looking for some tunes to get them in the mood to party as they're getting ready, we've got a fairly fresh track coming to you from local experimental artist Schaus.

"Galileo's Song" dropped earlier this month and is an artsy, avant-pop track that properly utilizes addiciting synth lines to create a soundscape you can't help but be immersed in. 

Listen to the track below and let it be the energetic addition to your party playlist or the necessary auditory element to your Saturday night chill sesh.
