New Music Video: "Pianos, Heavy Instrument"/"Snow on the Moon" - The Spirit of the Beehive

Together with visual artists/filmmaker/photographer Craig Scheihing, psych outfit The Spirit of the Beehive has provided us with a woozy documentation of their adventures on the road, soundtracked by "Pianos, Heavy Instrument" and "Snow on the Moon," songs sequentially found on band's latest LP Pleasure Suck (Tiny Engines). The former goes along with the band members on a scenic, hillside hike, before melding into the latter, where a lazy, sun-kissed day at the beach is eventually interrupted by the perpetual motion of life on the road. The Spirt of the Beehiove will be continuing their heavy 2017 touring schedule with a nearly month-long stint opening for The Districts this summer, but before they leave home, you can catch the guys and gal this evening at Spruce Street Harbor Park's Waterfront Sessions with Permanent Body.

New Midwestern Exposure LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Midwestern Exposure follows up its Grizzly Bear EP (released earlier this year in March) with a new full-length album, entitled The West. The trio splices elements of haunting country-blues with an ominous bite, stirring up the surroundings; however, despite those sinister sounds, fresh, folk-oriented points of optimism persist as well. They'll be setting up shop at Ortlieb’s on Wednesday, August 9, for a billing with the Dirty Soap Blues Band and King Kong and the Bleeding Hearts.

Kill Alters release 'No Self Helps' + play St. Vitus on 06.16

Brooklyn noisemakers Kill Alters make music that attacks, both physically and mentally. With pulsating percussions, laser-like synths, and the visceral vocals of Bonnie Baxter, the band offers a sound that's aggressive, complex, and demanding. Their compositions break from tradition, incorporating sounds ranging from the industrial to the downright frightening (a baby's laughter), and adopting a nightmarish aesthetic reminiscent of early post punk groups like Throbbing Gristle. Upcoming LP 'No Self Helps' (out June 28th on Haus Mountain) promises something different, and sometimes uncomfortable, through a journey that's complex, textured, and entertaining, every step of the way.  See them live at St. Vitus on 06.16. - Allie Miller

New Palm EP Available for Streaming

Ahead of its official release this Friday, June 16 via Carpark Records, Shadow Expert, the new EP from Palm, is available to stream in its entirety below. Juxtaposing the relative calm of the vocals with the directional cuts of experimental instrumentation, the quartet creates a dueling but symbiotic relationship. Contrasting those levitating lyrics with lightning-like jolts, Palm doesn’t sit still for too long in a sound akin to Dirty Projectors, Battles, or locals Banned Books. You can catch them at PhilaMOCA on Saturday, June 24, with Palberta and Suffer Dragon. (Photo by Brian Garbrecht)

That One Eyed Kid releases soulful synth-pop EP 'Crash and Burn'

Mostly known for his production skills, Josh Friedman (or That One Eyed Kid) just released an EP of his own: Crash and Burn. The record's synth-pop driven sound flirts with Hall & Oates gentlemanly soul-pop, while Josh' voice adds more depth to the tracks. Join the party at his upcoming show at Thunder Road Music Club on June 27th, and listen to single "No Touching" below. - Lilly Milman
