September’s episode of Shaking Through—the online audio and video collaboration between Weathervane Music and WXPN—features a song by Philadelphia’s own Creepoid, “Old Tree.” Earlier this year, the rock quartet released its debut LP, Horse Heaven; around the same time we interviewed drummer Pat Troxell and recorded the band for a Key Studio Session. This month’s session was Curated by Sean Agnew of R5 Productions and featured guest producer Kyle “Slick” Johnson.
More from the folks at Shaking Through:
Creepoid combines an eclectic set of influences including folk, hardcore, and psychedelia to create a unique and meaningful sound that is all their own. The band consists of longtime friends Sean Miller on guitar and vocals, guitarist Pete Joe Urban, and husband-and-wife Pat and Anna Troxell on drums and bass respectively.
“I chose Creepoid because I’m a big fan of their music,” states Sean Agnew, guest curator. “They are also one of the harder working local bands. As someone who sets up shows and concerts, I appreciate the effort that’s put into it. They email record labels, get their own shows and don’t just sit down and complain about how no one’s doing anything for them.”
