The Week’s Best MP3 Downloads, incl. Cayetana, Mariah Welch, Ecomog


CayetanaIndie punk trio Cayetana stopped by for this week’s Key Studio Session, recording four tracks and proving just why they were picked up by Tiny Engines Records so quickly.  With insightful lyrics and tight playing, Cayetana are quickly becoming a favorite among local music fans.  Stream and download “South Philly” below and revisit their full session here.  They’ll join Bad Braids at Little Berlin for a Ladyfest benefit show on April 20th; more information can be found here.

This free download from DRGN King is really like thirteen free downloads from thirteen different bands.  The Philly psych pop / rock outfit recently wrapped up their first-ever tour and celebrated with a mixtape of “van jams” called Minivan Problems: A Spring Mix by Drgn King.  Featured on the compilation are hometown heroes Norwegian Arms and Dangerous Ponies, in addition to a hidden DRGN King track that didn’t make it on to their recent Paragraph Nights LP.  Stream and download the mixtape below.

Philly rappers Ecomog recently debuted a new track called “Who Will Survive In America,” following up their head-turning LP As Seen on TV with a nod to Gil Scott-Heron in a collaboration with Voss.  Ecomog will perform at The Trocadero’s Balcony on April 18th; tickets and more information can be found here.  Stream and download “Who Will Survive in America” below.

Lowkey singer-songwriter Mariah Welch has a West Philly house show tonight with Bad Braids, Home Body and Charmaine’s Name.  The Deli recently spotlighted her warpy, billowing 2012 Bed Bugs EP and you can stream / download the album’s first track “Wrestle You” below.  Check out the rest of the stunning effort on Welch’s Bandcamp here.

Raucous West Philly collective On the Water brought their sea-shanty-like songs to Folkadelphia recently for a lively session.  Recording old and new compositions, the sometimes-twelve-piece paired down to six but still sound like a boatload of talented musicians spinning tall tales.  Stream “Eternal Husband” below and download the full set on Folkadelphia’s Bandcamp here.
