Local outfit The Interest Group brought a handful of new songs in for this week’s Key Studio Session to play alongside February’s “Locked On.” The psych-pop outfit has been moving quickly since releasing a 1960s cover song that got picked up by Pitchfork a couple of years ago, and they’ll be playing more new songs at Underground Arts on May 14th. Download “Sharing You” below and get the full set here.
Scranton, PA’s Coal Town Rounders stopped by for a Folkadelphia Session in January, which premiered this week on WXPN and online. The stripped-down bluegrass quartet takes its music backs to the roots in a don’t-fix-what-isn’t-broken fashion. Stream and download the session below.
Philly bluesy rockers Ill Fated Natives have released a single called “That Don’t Mean I Don’t Love You” off of their forthcoming debut EP Savages, channeling Citizen Cope’s laidback swagger and the gritty, lo-fi recordings of basement power rock bands. Get a copy below.
The Key explored Ataloft‘s new self-titled LP all week on Unlocked, digging into the band’s roots and reviewing the record. The focus started off with a download of “The End Is Nearer Than We Know,” which you can grab below. Check out the full Ataloft feature here.
Ahead of releasing a new full-called called I Sleep Alone, Philly’s Psalmships has shared a single called “Flesh Turn” as a free download. The song is creeping and haunting in Joshua Britton’s signature “ghost folk” style.
