Debut MESH Demos Available for Streaming & Purchase

Sims Hardin (Dark Web, JUICE, Brain Clouds, Throbbing Chakra) has a new musical outlet called MESH, and recently shared a trio of demos. Lo-fi, heady, garage-punk vibes permeate throughout the recordings, with its intimacy hinting at a slacker-rock mentality. "Work sucks. People suck. Life sucks. Fuck it - I'm just gonna jam on this guitar." MESH is slated to perform at Free Candy on Thursday, October 10, as part of a lineup that also includes Soft Crime (the latest project from Spacin's Jason Killinger), Thigh Master, and Michael Beach.

   

Debut Ash Cheshire Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Illusion is the debut release from Ash Cheshire. The sparseness of instrumentation provides a singular focus on its mesmerizing vocals and harmonies, like a candle in a minimally lit room. One can easily become transfixed. It's a mysteriously memorable force.

   

New Queen Jesus Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Dedicated to Spenser Spirit Hogans, Queen Jesus recently shared a new album, titled Glass Hat, which is available on cassette via Stereophonodon Records. Coasting along in a melodic jangle, with an underlying, unpredictable edge, the record seeps into one’s system in a peaceful, low-key yet well-honed manner. Sink into the shadows of the harmonious haze.

   

Debut Wet Brian EP Available for Streaming & Download

The quartet of Wet Brian recently dropped its debut EP Criterion. An ominous, mercurial environment develops a haunting tension. Eerie vocals pair with a steady, instrumental drive, chipping away at your psyche. One uneasily anticipates the other shoe dropping. 

   

The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Arch Of Love

Chris Schackerman has drummed for such notable acts as Literature, Mercury Girls, and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, but he “was never satisfied enough” with his own recorded demos to release them out into the world. For Chelsea Brennan, making music was never “really a large part” of her life. The two came together a few years back to create a project that was mostly just for fun; however, with their latest collaborative effort, Arch Of Love, it became apparent to the duo that they wanted making music to “become a larger part” of their daily lives. Schackerman and Brennan have already released a few singles via Richmond, VA’s 6131 Records, and are currently working on their first full-length album. You can take a listen to Arch Of Love’s new track, “Reintroduction,” below, and learn more about our most recent Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner HERE.
