09.26: Long Beard plays Baby's All Right to release "Means To Me" LP

You know that feeling of spending a few glorious weeks at summer camp, enjoying time out on the water with your bunkmates and roasting marshmallows by the fire and falling in love, only to have to go home with your memories at the end of the season and let them linger in your mind as you try to stay awake in school? That's what Long Beard's new single "Means To Me" sounds like. Feelings of nostalgia come through in Leslie Bear's ethereal voice; a move back home to New Jersey inspired the wistfulness in her lyrics. The title track on Long Beard's upcoming album Means To Me -- like its previous single "Sweetheart" -- explores the meaning of home, not only for Bear to ponder, but for the listener to consider as well. Long Beard will perform at Baby's All Right on September 26th to support the release of Means To Me; take a listen to the title track below. - Will Sisskind





New Whaler Jr. LP Available for Streaming

RFA bassist Brendan McHale, a.k.a. Whaler Jr., has a new album out now via Castle Crank Records, titled Wasting Time. Bright, at ease, acoustic guitar and keys radiate an inherent warmth, which draws one toward the shoreline. An inviting, unpretentious nature is soaked in vocal harmonies, soothing the tension and offering reprieve. Tonight, Whaler Jr.'s record release will be held at PhilaMOCA, with support from NYC's The Misters and Tokyo's The Molice.





Amanda Palmer debuts provocative music video for "Drowning in the Sound"

Boston’s Amanda Palmer released There Will Be No Intermission back in March, of the twenty tracks on the record “Drowning in the Sound” always stood above them all. The sharp orchestral changes led by disjointed piano strains provide the canvas for Palmer to paint inconvenient portraits of society with her lyrics. Amanda tackles tough subjects like abortion, climate change, and today’s political whirlwind of division with both sophistication and a much-needed crudeness. The music video for the single is a dance movement spectacle of the turmoil within. Beautifully orchestrated by Coco Karol and directed by Michael Pope, the “Drowning in the Sound” music video is an elegant portrayal of inner turbulence in the face of difficult and personal decisions. The video begs to be viewed and felt with the same intensity it was created; it is art the way art should always be: provocative. We are streaming the music video for “Drowning in the Sound” below. - Rene Cobar





Debut Empty Country Single Release Available for Streaming & Purchase

Joseph D’Agostino (of Cymbals Eat Guitars) recently announced a new project, Empty Country. As a precursor to a forthcoming album that is slated to arrive early next year, a pair of songs, "Ultrasound" and "Jets," were recently made available via Tiny Engines. "Ultrasound" explores the emotional turmoil and anxiety of waiting for a biopsy report “…following a suspicious-looking ultrasound”. With D’Agostino's wife Rachel, as well as Charles Bissell of The Wrens, featured on vocal harmony, the song fuses a sense of a loving connection and appreciation as one goes through a whirlwind.
