Dead Best – “Life, Love, And Liberty”

Dead Best is a new project from Adam Goren (of Adam And His Package) and Brian Sokel, who have been friends and tourmates for years but never made music together until the pandemic. They are neighbors in Philadelphia and started to work on music together to see what happened. What happened is a whole album, Dead Best, which will be out via Don Giovanni on December 10. Lead single “Life, Love, And Liberty” is fast but frothy, breaking into a sing-songy breakdown after a minute of build-up. Check ...

Nightlands – “Hymn To Me”

The War On Drugs just put out a new album, I Don’t Live Here Anymore. Around the time they released their previous album in 2017, the band’s bassist Dave Hartley put out a new album of his own as Nightlands. Today, he’s back with news of another Nightlands project, an EP called Moonshine that he wrote after leaving Philadelphia for Asheville. The whole EP will be out December 10, and today he’s sharing a single called “Hymn To Me.” Here’s his statement on it:

Empath – “Diamond Eyelids”

A few weeks ago, the Philadelphia noise-poppers Empath returned with a new single, “Born 100 Times,” and today they’re officially announcing the follow-up to their impressive 2019 debut Active Listening: Night On Earth. It’s called Visitor and will be out on February 11 — the album was produced by Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s Jake Portrait. They also have a new track out today, “Diamond Eyelids,” another blissed-out bed of fuzz with a quicksand hook. It comes with a video directed by Halle Ballard...

Caracara – “Hyacinth”

It’s been a bit since we’ve heard from the Philadelphia rippers Caracara, who we named one of the Best New Bands Of 2019 based on their excellent Better EP. Today, they’re back with a new single, “Hyacinth,” a high-energy emo blast with some pummeling guitars and a heavy breakdown. “Chrysalis, breaking out of it/ Hyacinth, bloom and burn and burial,” band leader Will Lindsay sings in the erudite hook. “I have been vacant and unyielding In pursuit of the anticlimactic.”

Watch The War On Drugs Play “I Don’t Live Here Anymore” & “I Don’t Wanna Wait” Live For The First Time In Tiny Desk Concert

It’s been nearly two years since the War On Drugs played their last live show, a December 2019 gig in their Philadelphia hometown. In a week and a half, the band will make their proper live return at the Desert Daze Festival. Early next year, they’ll head out on a big tour that will include a stop at Madison Square Garden. A few days ago, the War On Drugs finally released their great record I Don’t Live Here Anymore. And today, the band has given us a preview of how those new songs might sound w...

Stream The Ire’s Impressive New Goth-Punk EP CS

The Ire, a death-rock band from Philadelphia, got together a few years ago, and they released their demo in January of 2019. Right from the beginning, the band had an admirable sense of sweep and churn. The Ire play a catchy and melodic form of post-punk that’s not too far-removed from Pornography-era Cure. Today, the band has followed up that demo with CS, a short new cassette release that’s even more assured and graceful.

Watch Members Of Nothing, Gouge Away, & More Cover Ink & Dagger’s “Road To Hell”

You crazy for this one, Two Minutes To Late Night! For the entire pandemic era, the comedian Jordan Olds has been recruiting people from punk and metal bands to cover classic songs. Two weeks ago, for instance, it was members of Mastodon, High On Fire, and Yob doing Mountain’s “Never In My Life.” In the series’ latest Halloween-special edition, Two Minutes To Late Night digs deep and takes on Philadelphia hardcore cult heroes Ink & Dagger.

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 6 NFL Predictions

Welcome to Week 6 of the 2021 NFL season. As of now, we still have the Arizona Cardinals as the only undefeated team in the league. The big news coming out of the NFL was the leaked Jon Gruden emails, which lead to his resignation. After a 3-0 start, Las Vegas dropped their last two games and are now without a coach. My record from last week was 5-2, which should have been 6-1. Still don’t know why I had the Chiefs beating the Bills when I was telling everyone the opposite. My overall mark jumpe...

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 4 NFL Predictions

Welcome to Week 4 of the 2021 NFL season as it’s hard to believe we are almost a month in. My record from a week ago was 6-4, which lowered my over mark to 19-12. The winning percentage dipped a little from 61.9 to 61.3%. In the most anticipated game of the week, the Los Angeles Rams took care of the defending champion Buccaneers. Justin Tucker set a new NFL record with a 66-yard field goal as the Ravens beat the Lions as time expired. Aaron Rodgers led the Packers down the field in 37 seconds t...

Watch Deadguy Reunite For Their First Show In 24 Years At Decibel Fest

The metalcore band Deadguy reunited at the Decibel Metal & Beer Fest in Philadelphia this weekend. The New Jersey group was added to the lineup when it was rescheduled from 2020 earlier this year. It was Deadguy’s first time playing together in 24 years after they broke up in 1997. Before they broke up, they had only released one album, 1995’s Fixation On A Coworker. But it seems like they’re back on the performance circuit — they’re also playing the Los Angeles iteration of Decibel‘s fest in De...

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 3 NFL Predictions

Welcome to Week 3 of the 2021 NFL season in what has been an exciting couple of weeks. My record from a week ago was 8-4, which pushed my overall mark to 13-8. My winning percentage heading into Week 3 is 61.9% which means I’m below my targeted mark. The Los Angeles Rams continue to impress as they outlasted the Colts on the road. Buffalo rebounded nicely in Miami as they blanked the Dolphins. The Las Vegas Raiders are looking like real contenders early on after beating the Steelers on the road....

Stream Laura Jane Grace’s Surprise New At War With The Silverfish EP

Last year, in some of the bleakest days of an endless pandemic, Against Me! leader Laura Jane Grace surprise-released a solo album called Stay Alive. Grace recorded the album during quarantine at Chicago’s Electrical Audio studios, with Steve Albini recording, and it ruled. Since then, Grace has been able to move around a little more; last month, for instance, she played a show at Philadelphia’s much-memed Four Seasons Total Landscaping. Today, she has followed Stay Alive with a whole new surpri...

Stream Supine’s Feverish, Intense Debut Album No Altar For The Company Man

The city of Philadelphia has a long, proud history of dark, tangled, atmospheric hardcore. It’s the hometown of Ink & Dagger and Blacklisted and Soul Glo. Philly also has Drowse, who came out with the hard-as-fuck Dance In The Decay last year. I don’t know whether Philly’s Supine see themselves as being part of that whole lineage or not; the band seems to exist mostly within the screamo scene. But judging by their debut album No Altar For The Company Man, Supine have definitely earned a place at...

Nothing – “La La Means I Love You” (The Delfonics Cover)

Next month, Nothing are releasing The Great Dismal B-Sides, which is exactly what it sounds like: a collection of tracks recorded during the sessions for the Philadelphia heavy-music-to-shoegaze band’s 2020 album The Great Dismal. Last month, they shared the new song “Amber Gambler.” Today, they’re sharing another track, a cover of the Delfonics’ 1968 soul classic “La-La (Means I Love You).” Frontman Domenic Palermo says:

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 2 NFL Predictions

Welcome to 2021 Week 2 of the NFL season as things kicked off with a bang. Last week was bad, but it could have been much worse with my predictions. My record was 5-4, which falls way short on my quest to have at least a 70% winning percentage. The big shockers on Sunday had to be the Saints dominate the Packers for starters. The other one saw the Arizona Cardinals decimate the Tennessee Titans. On Monday, we saw one of, if not the best game when the Raiders beat the Ravens in OT. We will kick...

Rid Of Me – “Myself”

Naming your band after one of PJ Harvey’s best albums is a bold move, but Rid Of Me seem plenty ambitious. After releasing their debut EP in the spring of last year, the Philadelphia group has announced their first full-length album, Traveling, which will be out in December. Lead single “Myself” is a rousing upward swirl of noisy chaos, with Itarya Rosenberg providing the ominous intonations at the song’s center: “And I will stop breathing/ Will lose all control for a clung ego.”

Daddy’s Hangout 2021 Week 1 NFL Predictions

The time has come and we finally have football back again. As we all know, Tampa Bay defeated Kansas City to win Super Bowl LV. This year, both teams are considered favorites to win their respective conferences. Tampa Bay starts the season out on a Thursday night at home against the Dallas Cowboys. Kansas City will begin the season at home against a team they could see in the playoffs in the Cleveland Browns. Welcome to Week 1 of the 2021 NFL season. As always, my goal is to finish with winnin...

Seen On The Philly Scene: Megan Thee Stallion, Latto & Lil Baby Perform At Jay Z’s ‘Made In America’ Festival

Day one of Made In America is in the books and despite previous days of record-breaking flooding, thousands attended the first major music festival in Philadelphia amid sunny skies. As previously reported this year's fest is benefitting the ACLU of Pennsylvania and a portion of net proceeds will also support the efforts of the REORM Alliance.

Meek Mill – “Blue Notes II” (Feat. Lil Uzi Vert)

If it weren’t for one Will Smith, Meek Mill and Lil Uzi Vert would probably be the two biggest rappers in the entire history of Philadelphia. Meek and Uzi have teamed up on songs a few times over the years, but they haven’t had a big marquee collaboration until now. Today, Meek released his new single “Blue Notes II,” the sequel to a mixtape favorite from 2016, and he brought Uzi along.

Watch Laura Jane Grace Perform At The Infamous Four Seasons Total Landscaping

Last year, a few days after the presidential election, Rudy Giuliani hosted a press conference in the parking lot of Four Seasons Total Landscaping, a landscaping company in Philadelphia. The bizarre event turned into an immediate joke and the business has capitalized on their short-lived relevancy beyond being just a landscaping company in Philadelphia. Last month, Against Me! leader Laura Jane Grace announced that she would play a show at Four Seasons Total Landscaping and that show took place...

Slave Ambient Turns 10

In 2011, the War On Drugs were just getting started. Technically, the band had already been around for over half a decade, and in 2008 they’d released a well-liked debut called Wagonwheel Blues, an album that combined classic rock-isms with a hissing, ramshackle 21st century psychedelia. Back then, Kurt Vile was in the band, and Adam Granduciel wasn’t yet quite known as the visionary architect of the Drugs. Even by the time Vile had departed and Slave Ambient came out, Granduciel’s work lived in...

‘American Pie’ performer snags star on Hollywood Walk of Fame

HOLLYWOOD — Singer Don McLean received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday, Aug. 16,  in connection with the 50th anniversary of “American Pie.” McLean was all smiles at the ceremony on Hollywood Boulevard in front of the Pie Hole, which changed the name of its “Mom’s Apple Crumble” to “American Pie” for the day. “I’ve had some wonderful experiences,” McLean told the cheering crowd as he accepted the honor.

Dr. Dog – “Here Comes The Hotstepper” (Ini Kamoze Cover)

Earlier this year, the Philadelphia band Dr. Dog announced that they were retiring from touring after a long string of dates that start next week and will take them through the end of the year, when they’ll perform a four-night residency in their home city. But it appears that, despite no longer performing live, they are still going to be a band. And they recently released a cover of “Here Comes The Hotstepper,” their take on the ’90s Jamaican dance hall track by Ini Kamoze. Check it out below. ...

Union Transfer Names Its Coat Check After Japanese Breakfast

Japanese Breakfast just wrapped up a five-night run of sold-out shows at Union Transfer in Philadelphia last night.

How American Bandstand Changed American Culture: Revisit Scenes from the Iconic Music Show

In a Pontiac advertisement that aired just before the 1969 episode of American Bandstand above, the year’s models are touted as “breakaway cars” — vehicles for escape without rebellion. The ad shows a handful of getaways, all ending at the dealership, presided over by a bland salesman who smiles and nods his approval. It’s an apposite choice for the program that follows — a show which, for 37 years, gave American audiences safe teenage rebellion in the wholesome container of Dick C...

Four Seasons Total Landscaping is now a punk venue

Four Seasons Total Landscaping, a business which occupies a mostly-bland industrial lot in Philadelphia that once played host to a uniquely bizarre event in American political history, has now opened up its services as a concert venue.
