Psych

New Gorgeous Porch Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Valhalla and the Attack of the Imperial Treasure Girls is the latest release from Gorgeous Porch, the lo-fi project of Christopher Wood (Grimace Federation, Orbit to Leslie). Enchanting vocals float over the top of the orbiting, instrumental combination of drums, Casio keys, and guitar. A vibrant yet mysterious psych-pop dynamic maintains its seemingly perpetual motion, smoothly locking you into those hazy grooves. Share this with someone special.

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: "Observatories" - Jeff Zeigler & Dash Lewis

“Observatories” is the latest collaboration between Jeff Zeigler (Valley Exit, Inlets, Arc in Round) & Dash Lewis (Gardener). Synth-fueled atmospherics envelope as one explores a pensive, pacifying state. The rhythmic, percussive motion steadies as the soft, bright touches of keys accent. Take it all in - just a little somethin' to help ease ya into your day. You can also find them opening for Meg Baird & Mary Lattimore this Monday, April 29 at Johnny Brenda's.
