Cindy Cane brings the goth rodeo to Baby's All Right residency 01.27

The music of Cindy Cane defies classification - in listening to the singles off frontman Tom Lescovich's upcoming EPs New York Strangers and all my ex's live in bushwick, you can find yourself leaping between murky electronica and yearning folk, all with a backbeat of the expressive rawness Lescovich is so good at cultivating. The music of Cindy Cane may span many genres, but it all stems from a deep love of country music. While it may not sound very country, tracks "The Darkness" and "Let Me In" brilliantly reflect the genre's penchant for laying emotions bare. Cindy Cane landed a rare four day residency at Baby's All Right starting on January 27, so check out their music below, and wear your best cowboy boots! - Sunny Betz





Weekend Warrior, January 11 - 13

Seagulls first capture our attention with the graceful melodies and textured soundscapes found on the group’s debut Great Pines, The Deli Philly’s September Record of the Month 2014. The LP was later picked up by Yellow K Records and re-issued. Today, it’s long-awaited follow-up is out now via Evergreen Prefecture/Honest Face Records (and is available on a thumb drive, packaged like Sega Genesis cartridge). “Thrown Voice​ is an album about communication - interpersonally, with the environment, within one’s self - and the way that technology can facilitate or get in the way of those interactions. It’s a follow-up about the importance of following up.” Once again, Matt Whittle and friends demonstrate their musical talents, masterfully crafting a timeless sound for the modern age. Feel free to come and experience plenty of feels tomorrow night at PhilaMOCA, where Seagulls will be holding their album release show, supported by friends Spirit Haus, Queue, and URBVN. – H.M.

Debut Buddie EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Buddie, the fuzzed-out Philly powerpop project of Dan Forest, just dropped its debut EP Change of Scenery. The origins of the songs began while Forest was employed as a conservation biologist in Bioko (a small island in Equatorial Guinea, Central Africa), and have been fleshed out in the Grays Ferry studio of Keith Abrams (Pine Barons, Tremellow), who is responsible for mixing the album. The cassette is now available via Super Wimpy Punch, and the band will be rockin' the label's South Philly headquarters tomorrow evening to celebrate its arrival. They'll also be joined by Qwark, Swim Camp, and Vermont's Yellowfront.





The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Breaklite

Breaklite have branded themselves “the stoner punks (from hell) we all know and love,” and that just might be the case after you take their debut EP Bloodshot for a spin. It gave us the feels, and we’re down to see/hear where this party bus is going. We recently caught up with frontman Johnny Germ for our Featured Artist(s) Q&A. Check it out HERE, and join the cult!





Starchild & The New Romantic brings soul pop to Elsewhere on Valentine's Day

Whether you’re getting ahead on Valentine’s Day plans or dreading its approach, it’ll be well worth it for you to make it down to Elsewhere the night of the 14th to check out Starchild & The New Romantic. Drawing on the grooves of artists like Prince and Outkast, Starchild (otherwise known as Bryndon Cook) gracefully balances vibrant earnestness and downright addictive electro funk, making even heartbreak sound fun. Cook established himself touring with Solange and working with Blood Orange, but with last year’s debut album Language, it’s clear that Starchild deserves a stage of his own. Check out Language on Starchild & The New Romantic’s Bandcamp, and don’t miss the upcoming Brooklyn show, date or no date. - Sunny Betz
