Gambles to bring haunting alt-folk to Rough Trade Sept 16th

Gambles, the alt-folk project of New York-based artist, Matthew Siskin, produces ruminations on modern life that feel both dark and revelatory. His tracks are characterized by minimalist instrumentals, subtle in feel, accompanied by Matthew Siskins's harrowing vocal accompaniment---delicate, vulnerable but decidedly resolute. The combination yeilds a sound that is as beautiful as it is haunting, and leaves the listener to contend with some serious soul-bearing. Check out the single "You Won't Remind It" below and see Gambles headling at Rough Trade on September 16th with Roger Harvey. - Olivia Sisinni





Debut The Afterglows LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The Afterglows, the musical union of Sam Cook-Parrott (Radiator Hospital) and Michael Cantor (The Goodbye Party), recently shared their self-titled debut full-length album. The home-recordings capture the innate ability of the duo to turn heartache into melody, with Cook-Parrott's acoustic strums and Cantor's layered electric tones as backdrops. It's an intimate look into the late-night, open, honest dialogue between the two housemates. You can stream and download the album below, which is also available on vinyl via Salinas Records.





New Track: "3 Months And A Week" (Feat. Eskimeaux) - Power Animal

It's been a moment, but we are happy to hear that Power Animal, a.k.a. Keith Hampson, has a rad new single called "3 Months And A Week," which premiered at Stereogum. It features former Philly native Gabrielle Smith, a.k.a Eskimeaux, whom Hampson had a challenging personal yet fruitful musical relationship with. "I think, in general, both of us were much more capable of expressing our feelings in the form of songs than face-to-face, so we would hang out together and then go home and send each other songs. In a way we had an ongoing, passive dialogue that was sometimes romantic and sometimes really hurtful to each other." His latest track also inspired Eskimeaux to write and record the song, "Broken Necks," off her 2015 breakout album O.K. (Double Double Whammy), as a response. "3 Months And A Week" will appear on Power Animal's upcoming album Good Wind Pt. 1, due out hopefully later this year.





New Music Video: "The Smell of Us" - The Dove & The Wolf

The Dove & The Wolf recently premiered a new music video for "The Smell of Us," over at Nylon. The footage uses the landscapes of Atlantic City, Wildwood, and Ocean City (New Jersey) to capture the air of loneliness found in the single, which is off the duo's latest EP I Don't Know What To Feel. The video was directed and edited by Dave Jannetta. You can catch The Dove & The Wolf performing live tomorrow evening at All Night Diner with Friendship, Curtis Cooper, and Field Sleeper.





Busy Bee Abuzz at Tralfamadore Aug. 20

Arcadia student Deb Gilmore, a.k.a. Busy Bee, negotiates intriguing lyrical hikes. Instrumentally led by peacefully calm, acoustic guitar/mandolin, which can make round about moves, changing course in short order after establishing the presumed line, Gilmore makes unique narrative decisions, mixing metaphors in a playful manner, while still engaging in the inherently personal folk spectrum. That ability to cut an image or thought down to its essence or conversely cast an uncommon means of comparison gives her songs a familiar yet refreshing point of view. With a knack for gathering and harnessing emotive momentum that spills forward in an energetic release, Past Life enters the fray at Tralfamadore. The sultry yet haunting vocals of Kelsey Cork and the eerie, ambient experimentions of Gravers Lane aid in shaping this evening's billing, which is completed by Brooklyn quartet The Rizzos. Tralfamadore (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 7:30pm, $6, All Ages - Michael Colavita
