 FOXTRAX is waking up the alt rock scene with their tight, nuanced arrangements and excellent songwriting chops. The trio embraces their music’s dark undertones but isn’t afraid to make light of a rainy day- or in this case, a "Grey Morning." Churning out consistently excellent vocal performances, guitar lines and all around vibes, this band is one of ...

Ambient folk dads Justin Wilcox and Jeffrey Silverstein, aka Nassau, make some pretty sweet, evocative tunes. Their debut record, Heron, arrived last September to eager listeners on Bandcamp. Their songs are stripped down to twangy guitar, reverb-heavy vocals, and a little bit of drum machine, highlighting the duo’s great, old school songwriting chops. Nassau are headed ...

Donning an aesthetic drawn from the experimental side of runway fashion and new wave androgyny, the left-field tendencies of Alternative R&B newcomer Morgan Saint are on full-display in the music and video for "YOU." The video sees the singer performing her subdued brand of vibrant and forlorn synthpop amidst an empty stage; creating a barren, yet, intimate ...

Quit sleepin’ on our “nasty boys”: Philly’s CERAMIC ANIMAL breaking out in 2018

Those who follow the Philly music scene closely have probably heard of Doylestown psych rock outfit Ceramic Animal. And soon…very soon… so will everyone else.

For a few years now the suit-clad foursome known as Ceramic Animal has been kicking around Philly and New York City. These self-proclaimed “couple a nasty boys” look anything but–in their signature matching three-piece-suits-and-ties. But it’s far from a gimmick. From where I sit these guys just might have what it takes.

Here is why I’m betting on these boys to have a breakout 2018:

Sloppy Jane could perhaps better be described as a performance art collective than a band. Naked bodies, colored dye, and television screens set a backdrop for melting inhibitions as the music (and often the musicians) tumbles into chaotic fits. It’s a must-see for fans of avant-garde, performative punk. Deservingly, the band, led by Haley Dahl, will bring ...
