Dead Waves release sophomore record “Living Inside” on May 26 at Shea Stadium

Queens, NY-based trio Dead Waves are set to release their post-psych-noise sophomore record “Living Inside” on May 27. If you are a fan of wild, loose, jammy drumming, distant guitar drone and angst-filled screaming vocals, you’ve found your band here. Calling their music "transcendental post-punk," the direct lineage to early works of Sonic Youth, John Zorn, and Swans are readily detected. Having Martin Bisi produce (who worked with those three artists) solidifies that connection. Some of the albums six tracks introduce a heavier guitar sound in places, while quieter moments evoke the vocal style of Joy Division’s Ian Curtis. There are also moments where spoken word segments are introduced a la' Jim Morrison or Henry Rollins. The band will play Shea Stadium on May 26 along with PC Worship, Martin Bisi, Parlor Walls, Prima, and Ritual Humor. - Dave Cromwell

New Music Video: "Three Leg Dog" - Mumblr

Mumblr recently shared a new single, "Three Leg Dog," off their forthcoming record The Never Ending Get Down. The tune is also accompanied by a music video that was directed by the band's bassist Sean Reilly. The album is due out on June 10 via Fleeting Youth Records, and the group will be hosting a release party the following evening, Saturday, June 11 at PhilaMOCA with Mannequin Pussy and Amanda X.





Beach Slang Return Home at Union Transfer May 20

Punk outfit Beach Slang has hit the shores of Philly's DIY community with a vigorous punch. The group's gritty anthems, with their tenacious tones, contain a rollicking, vibrant energy, even in the darkest of places. They refer to themselves as "weird and wild," and these distinctions are certainly recognized within their music and performances. The band has started working on its second full-length album, the follow-up to The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us. To close out the end of an extensive spring tour, Beach Slang will return home to Union Transfer tonight, where they'll be joined by Potty Mouth, Dyke Drama, and Positive No. Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St., 7:30pm, $15, All Ages - Gina Rullo 





Hector's Pets and Fletcher C. Johnson take Union Pool back to simpler times on 6/1

There's nothing like some good ol' nostalgia — even if most of us weren't around for the music that largely inspires NYC area bands Fletcher C. Johnson and Hector's Pets (pictured). the former takes cues from rock-pop bands of yesteryear, inundating listeners with prominent, simple guitars and airy vocals to match. Hector's Pets, too, carry a vintage sound, albeit one that is faster and harsher.  Quick guitar riffs, driving drums and hard lead vocals supplanted with cooing back ups will be sure to get feet tapping. See them both at Union Pool tomorrow night (05.21).





Weekend Warrior, May 20 - 22

Tonight at Everybody Hits is the long-awaited release show for Thin Lips’ debut LP Riff Hard, coming out via local tastemakers Lame-O Records. Thin Lips are a venerable supergroup of longstanding Philly stalwarts who have hit a sweet spot of triumphant pop rock and confessional, introspective lyrics without sentimentality. Chrissy Tashjian, formerly of Dangerous Ponies and The Bee Team, captains this ship with her commanding, casual, and versatile vocals. The hard riffs are largely courtesy of longtime bandmate Kyle Pulley (ex-Dangerous Ponies) and Chris Diehm, a punk-rock lifer who cut his teeth in Lancaster’s 1994! before coming to Philly and lending his talents to Thin Lips, as well as Year Of Glad. The band is filled out by Mikey Tashjian (The Superweaks, ex-Dangerous Ponies), who shows his ability to shift rhythms and help craft intriguing songs, while maintaining a not-too-serious rock 'n' roll sheen. Celebrating with the Lips will be Casey Magic, Lame-O labelmates Lowercase Roses, folky psych rockers Pine Barons, and Pure Pop, a “new pop-punk trio comprised of Lame-O, Superweaks, and Modern Baseball angel babies.” Everybody Hits, 529 W. Girard Ave., 8pm, $5-$10, All Ages - Adam G.
