Bleeding Rainbow stopped by for this week’s Key Studio Session in support of their new record Interrupt.  As Key editor John Vettese writes, “[it’s] not their easiest to listen to – at turns it can be raw, biting, forlorn, enraged and rarely poppy – but it’s undoubtedly the truest to where the band is at artistically…” and these live tracks capture all of those emotions and personalities.

Philadelphia musician Abi Reimold released her new EP Forget.  The name-your-own-price effort is reminiscent of both PJ Harvey and Angel Olsen, with Reimold plunging into the depths of heartbreaking lyrics and dream-like vignettes.  Stream and download “Morning” below and get the full EP here.

Boston psych-rock outfit Quilt returned to the XPN studios for the first repeat session in Folkadelphia history.  On the heels of releasing their sophomore record Held in Splendor, the trio. along with a touring bassist, recorded a three-song set of expansive and comforting new songs.  Take a listen and download below.  Revisit the band’s first session here.

Revolution, I Love You, a pop-tinged rock band out of Philadelphia, released their new EP The Atlantic Ocean.  The duo looked to many different genres for inspiration, saying the EP “is influenced as much by The Replacements, Bruce Springsteen, and Big Star as they are by the electronica and hip hop artists whose influence was so prevalent on Revolution, I Love You’s earlier recordings.”  Stream and download it below.

This week on Unlocked, The Key dug into Creepoid‘s new self-titled LP.  We were introduced to the record on Monday with a free download of “Baptism,” described as having “a spiraling riff that drags you through the mire down to the water.”  Stream and download it below and check out the rest of the week-long feature here.
