West Philly’s Roof Doctor were lauded by Stereogum this past April as a Band To Watch. For good reason; Roof Doctor’s album, Mobile Freedom Home, is a ramshackle-y, charming, invigorating, and irresistible collection of indie-pop songs.

Led by singer and guitarist Mark Harper, Roof Doctor began as a Harper solo project, that grew into a five piece band including Chet Williams (sax, keyboard, percussion, bass and vocals), drummer Kevin Paschall, guitarist Alex Stackhouse, bassist Sean Reilly, and Harper pulling all the seemingly disparate parts together. The band did a Key Studio Session in July; you can listen/download the session here.

Below, download “Bottle It Up,” and mark your calendars to see them play Johnny Brenda’s on Sunday, September 21st.
