We’re bummed to be sitting SXSW out this year, but grateful to live in a place where hundreds of bands descend upon every week. As we continue to map out what’s next for Singles Club, here are two tracks that have us reeling.
As if the Philly music scene couldn’t be any stronger right now, one of our favorite psych/garage outfits, Spacin’ have returned with a new album, Total Freedom. Led by Birds Of Maya‘s Jason Killinger, Spacin’ straddle the line between the Stooges and the Velvets, the result being a far-out blend of fuzzed out guitars and deep grooves. ‘Titchy,’ a standout cut from the record remains captivating despite vocals being buried behind lo-fi production. Total Freedom is out now via Richie Records.
Lionlimb opened the Quilt record release show at Baby’s All Right last week and completely won us over. Together Stewart Bronaugh and Joshua Jaeger, both of whom played in Angel Olsen‘s backing band, released their debut LP, Shoo just last week. Lead single ‘Domino’ is a rolling, ebullient track fit seamlessly with Bronaugh’s impressive vocal delivery. Layered with moving piano and horn parts, there is not only an obvious knack for not only songwriting here but orchestration as well. Not to be missed at SXSW. Shoo is out now via Bayonet Records.
