Weyes Blood moves from NYC to LA, release singles "Do You Need My Love" and "Seven Words"

Straddling the line betweeen Otis Redding's soulful vintage pop and Nico's decadent, maudit songwriting, Weyes Blood (aka Natalie Merring, who recently relocated from NYC to LA) is certainly a singular talent. Gifted with an incredibly deep and expressive voice, until recently the singer songwriter performed solo on stage with just an acoustic guitar and a four track recorder playing anything from vintage sounding instrumental tracks to background noise, but she will be joined by a full band for her upcoming tour. Weyes blood recently unveiled two singles from her forthcoming album, Front Row Seat To Earth, titled "Seven Words" and “Do You Need My Love” (both streaming below). The latter, released a few days ago, struggles with impossible love, and the feedback loop that such a love engenders: the harder to grasp, the easier to let oneself slide into unchecked romance. Angelinos will be able to catch her at The Resident on September 15th, while New Yorkers who missed her performance at Rough Trade this weekend will get another chance on November 10th at The Park Church Co-op.





The Deli DC Area's Record of the Month: Go Cozy - "Glaziao"

Named after the Puerto Rican slang word for perfect surfing conditions, Go Cozy’s debut full length Glaziao is a warm and hypnotic release that takes inspiration from ethereal acts such as The Sundays and The LA's. The quintet creates deeply personal music while wielding airy guitar tones and lush melodies. Lyrically, the album touches on themes of self-loathing, introspection, and damaging love, while warm shimmering guitars and graceful harmonies from front-man Homero Salazar Andrujovich and Maria Sage keep Go Cozy’s music delightfully upbeat. Definitely an enjoyable find. - John Honan





New Music Video: "Curse Of The Sun" - Nothing

Last week, we posted director Jimmy Hubbard's "Try To Disappear" video for Baroness, which was made up of live performance and backstage footage. This week, Hubbel gives Philly's own Nothing the similar treatment; however, he captures the hazy, drug-induced feelings of the band's music during editing for the single "Curse Of The Sun". Embrace its hallucinogenic warmth. Nothing is currently on an extensive European tour that will be pushing forward into the middle of next month.





New Track: "Romantic" - Mannequin Pussy

Mannequin Pussy frontwoman Marisa Dabice pulls you in with her coy, vulnerable verses, before unleashing a bit of fury in the chorus of "Romantic". The title track from the band's forthcoming album (due out October 28 via Tiny Engines) is brief but poignant. The quartet will be most likely performing this single and many others from the record at PhilaMOCA on Thursday, September 29 opening for Ohio's All Dogs.





Weekend Warrior, September 2 - 5

Though the corporate monstrosity known as Made In America will be taking over Center City Philly this weekend, it doesn’t mean that you don’t have a safe haven away from the mainstream crap that will be flooding our streets. Tonight at Nacho House, get the feels with the warm, comforting harmonies of The Afterglows. The natural musical partnership of West Philly housemates Michael Cantor (The Goodbye Party, ex-Ambulars) and Sam Cooke-Parrott (Radiator Hospital) will be celebrating the release of their collaborative self-titled debut LP, which you will be able to purchase this evening on vinyl. It will be a “chill” night of “soft sounds” that will also include local singer-songwriter Shannen Moser and former Chumped frontwoman Anika Pyle. And you won’t have to consume any crappy, overpriced Buds! Nacho House (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 8pm, Free, All Ages - H.M. Kauffman
