New Music Video: "We Are Selfish" - The Ghost In You

Singer-songwriter Billy Polard, a.k.a. The Ghost In You, just shared a new music video for the track "We Are Selfish" (off his latest album Heaven Help Us), which he conceptualized and directed. It was also shot in the woods of Willow Grove, PA earlier this month, and edited by Bob Sweeney. The footage features appearances from Polard's dad, stepmom, brother, cousin and her child.

Arbor Daze makes the sounds of the season

 It's been quite nice moderately transitioning from devil's dick level heat to the gloomy frigid weather Portland is typically known for. While there's many a sad album signifying our respective feelings on this transition, none really does more justice than Arbor Daze's ambient despondence.

Our eyes have been on Aspen Koch's solo project since she tied on one of our Artist of the Month polls a little while back. She's been quite busy since then putting the finishing touches on last month's release, Four Months. Her work as Arbor Daze is fairly minimalistic in instruments wielded yet maximal in its impact on the listener - using just a guitar, a loop pedal and her voice to sonically capture the brood - though she collaborated  with others on Four Months.

Thankfully we're not the only ones to take notice of Koch's efforts (and Sarah Lane's of the Late Great, for that matter!), as there's a show tomorrow displaying a bit of appreciation. 

It's just about the time for the Jade Lounge's October #WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday, just in case you somehow didn't know) Showcase and Arbor Daze, along with Sarah Lane, Jen Deale of Santiam and soulful jazz guitarist Angelica Pray will be performing. Come experience the haze of Arbor Daze in person tomorrow as you fall for the other lovely ladies as well!





Inaugural National Park Feat. American Trappist, Madalean Gauze & More at Bourbon & Branch Oct. 22

National Park is a miniature festival curated by Painted Lady Records in which seven of Philly's own emerging musicians will play a sampling of music that just might put them on the map. This conceptualized event brings together a diverse lineup of singer-songwriters and bands, who otherwise would not likely share a stage together, providing you with a taste of their music catalogue. The inaugural event will be co-headlined by the solo effort from River City Extension's Joe Michelini, American Trappist. Also sharing top billing for this evening will be the genre-bending songwriting of Madalean Gauze, who has made a name for herself locally since releasing her debut EP American War. The showcase will also feature multi-instrumentalist Chet Williams, Modern Television, Muccino, and more. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., 7pm, $10-$15, 21+ - Bill McThrill

Cote unveils new track 'Green Light'

We highlighted COTE a few weeks ago in this very blog and we just noticed the Brooklyn based project (brainchild of singer songwriter Taryn Randall) released her second single, entitled 'Green Light,' which confirms the good things we heard in the first one, and in particular a beautifully expressive voice. No live events scheduled for her just yet. - photo by Jen Trahan
