Grimace Federation

Peep these Philly cats as they throw down at the Kung-Fu Necktie with a gusto and precision that boggles the ears and mind. They are playing a bunch of dates in Philly over the next months. Now is a great time to see more of what you’ll witness in the video below.

Scattered Trees – Live in Philadelphia,PA – 8.15.11

Posted on by jake Posted in The Beat | Leave a comment

Scattered Trees is touring in support of their new album, Sympathy.  This new album offers a selection of songs penned by lead singer-songwriter Nate Eiesland as an emotional release to the passing of his father several years ago. Yes it’s moody and sensitive, but there are also holes with bright shiny light spilling through.  As a whole it’s pretty highly listenable with several twists and turns that you may not expect.  Their set in Philadelphia at the Kung-Fu necktie was short, but powerful as they expanded on several of the albums softer delivered songs.  Their live versions of “Sympathy”, “Love and Leave” and “Four Days Straight” were quite stimulating.

 

Peep “Four Days Straight” live from the Kung-Fu Necktie below.

Orbit to Leslie – Live in Philadelphia – 8.10.11

Philadelphia’s Orbit to Leslie is a mix of musicians playing Surf and Garage rock mixed with a heafty dose of Afro-beat.  The question is does their drumming singing beast of a front man Chris Wood from Grimace Federation realize that this side-project may be just the slice of chocolete cake needed to save the world.

Country Mice – Live in Philadelphia – 8.1.11

So a few weeks ago a wonderful new music service from Europe landed in the good ole’ USA called Spotify.  Since that evil corp. Apple killed Lala I had really missed the access to everything my heart desired musically.  Now thanks to Spotify I am back to discovering bands daily.  One of the best new discoveries I made in the past week is a band from Brooklyn called Country Mice.  To my luck they played their first show this past week in Philadelphia.

Peep the video below to see and hear their brand of Rock filled with plenty of harmonies, distortion and heart.
