PREMIERE: Rafael Vigilantics - "Ramblin' Bones"

 Blending folk, neo-soul and hip hop in a broodingly mysterious yet openly raw manner, Rafael Vigilantics shares with us a new haunting and emotional track titled "Ramblin' Bones." Co-written with Noah Harmon of Airborne Toxic Event, "Ramblin' Bones" tells a tale of long living with the skeletons in our closet. Captured with relatable lyrics and captivating with its video visuals, "Ramblin' Bones" shares a struggle we've all gone through - not being able to let our demons go.

On making the track, Rafael Vigilantics says "'Ramblin’ Bones' is about never being able to quite go home or leave behind the things that haunt us, about how a fresh start seems to only come from the deepest and most brutal of fires."

Even though we can't escape what ills us, we can at least escape into Rafael Vigilantics' beautifully shot video. Watch it below.





New Inauguration Day Protest Compilation to Benefit the ACLU

"This compilation is an expression of love, anger, hope and protest on inauguration day. Let it serve as a reminder that the fight for justice is not over, that the celebration of diversity is essential to progress, that we must work together for what is fair and good. Can’t stop. Won’t Stop. Don’t stop now."

Featuring a plethora of Philly's favorite indie musicians like Radiator Hospital, Abi Reimold, Jon Loudon (Restorations), Marisa Dabice (Mannequin Pussy), Pat Conaboy (The Spirit of the Beehive), August Koch (Cayetana), and so many more covering iconic artists (Neil Young, John Lennon, David Bowie, New Order, etc.), the thirty-eight song compilation, Don't Stop Now: a collection of covers, will hopefully bring you some type of solace as well as inspiration today, as we prepare for the ginormous battle that lies ahead of us. But have no fear - we'll all be here for each other. FUCK COMRADE TRUMP! All proceeds from this compilation will benefit the ACLU.





New Allison Crutchfield LP Available for Streaming

Allison Crutchfield first cut her teeth in music in high school, co-fronting The Ackleys with her sister Katie (of now Waxahatchee fame). They were later inspired to form pop-punk outfit P.S. Eliot after catching a So So Glos performance in their native home state of Alabama. Allison began appearing on The Deli Philly site with her band Swearin', and later on charmed us with her lo-fi solo effort, Lean Into It. And after the initial spin of her new LP Tourist In This Town, via NPR Music's First Listen, we are totally lovin' it, and predict that 2017 is going to be a most excellent year for the talented artist. The album officially comes out January 27 via Merge Records, and her hometown record release show will be held on Friday, February 10 at the First Unitarian Church, where she'll be joined by her backing band The Fizz, as well as good buddies Radiator Hospital, Pinkwash, Empath, and Try The Pie.





First Frost Releases Self-Titled Debut EP

Defying definitive genre classification, Boston-based quartet, First Frost (formerly Foliage), has released a debut EP that feels more like a multi-movement work than an indie-rock album.  As a songwriting duo, Lauren Koppelman and Morgan Browne combine elements of shoegaze and psych/experimental rock with sleek pop leanings, creating an original tapestry of sound that is all and none of the influences that comprise them.  Check out the EP below, and weather the Winter with First Frost. -Brian Varneke

Have yourself a hefty pour of some sensually funky soul syrup with Tribe Mars, who amid a lineup change still boast the same incredible output. Now featuring the talented Vaughn Kimmons (of POPgoji and as Brown Alice), the group's interesting arrangements are only elevated by the ardent vocality of Kimmons.

Rescheduled from its original weather-postponed date and location, Tribe Mars will be joining Blossom tonight at new downtown nightclub NYX for some Sunday Sessions vibes, hosted by multitalented singer-songwriter-producer Fritzwa.

It's free, so let your soul glow up in the city's newest spot with music starting at 9pm.
