New Music Video: "The Sun Still Seems to Move" - Shannen Moser

"The Sun Still Seems to Move," a new song from Philly singer-songwriter Shannen Moser, has arisen. The recording possesses a gentle, folk-country progression as Moser narrates in an earnest, emotive manner with raw, gripping beauty. Inserting a poem as vocals bounce and echo off each other, there’s a tender yet escalating tension that tears right through. You can catch Moser this Thursday, February 28, on a Home Outgrown Presents lineup at The Music Ward that also includes The Obsessives and Active Bird Community. (Photo by Vincent Sadonis)

New Bridge Underwater LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Bridge Underwater recently shared its new self-titled full-length album. Breathe in the buoyant, bubbly, pop-rock sound. Velvety, seamless melodies and exacting, instrumental lines create a weightless sense of intimacy, as the synth and vocals wash over you. It’s delicate, dreamy and danceable - all at the same time.

Matt Shapiro unveils single "The Addict" from upcoming LP "Fade In"

With three full length albums and a fair share of movie placements under his composer and musician's belt, Matt Shapiro cannot not be called a staple of the NYC scene. He recently unveiled The Addict (streaming below), the first single from the upcoming EP Fade In, scheduled for an early March release. Mostly electronic, The Addict represents - according to Shapiro himself - a return to a more disciplined and stripped down approach to writing, after the epic and layered sound of his latest LP Metaphysical. However, after the initial bars (which are stripped down indeed), The Addict builds into a rich and warm sound conveyed by luxurious, '80s inspired synth pads and by Matt's soulful tenor and spot on falsettos, which sing about the best addictions of all - Falling in Love.

Andrew Leahey's "Airwaves", out 03.01, channels golden classic rock era

As a musician, I hear plenty of songs where I curse the ground upon which I walk, for I've heard the kind of sound that I wish I could produce. Enter Andrew Leahey, whose tracks have caused me to spit more well-deserved expletives at the soil than I can count. Leahey's new album Airwaves -- which drops everywhere on 03.01 -- channels the songwriter's favorite artists such as Petty and Springsteen, whose music he cherished as a kid. The album comes as the result of a creative spurt done after a brain operation that almost cost Leahey his life. Thank the lucky stars for his survival, because Airwaves has tracks that channel the earworm classic rock sound that will get locked in your head. "Moving Like The Weather" is a love track that thunders with stadium-rock style passion. Leahey's cover of Echo & The Bunnymen's "Lips Like Sugar" rips just as hard as the original. And album singles "Airwaves" and "Queen and King of Smaller Things" will have you -- and audiences around the country -- falling for Leahey's blue-collar but polished sound.

Catch Leahey & the Homestead play 3rd and Lindsley on March 3rd when they come through town on their tour. Take a listen to the anthemic "Queen and King of Smaller Things" below. - Will Sisskind
