Casey Bell has stepped out on her own with Dog Barking at the Moon after being busy with Break It Up and Myrrias.  The new record is contemplative and quiet with plenty of interesting instrumental phrasing to keep your head in it.  Stream and download the record below.

Drexel-born rockers Thee, Idea Men brought its tight sound in for a Key Studio Session.  The band performed tracks from its decade-defying debut New Level Shoes, including “Help Me, Mama” (below) and “All the While.”  The band is busy, but you can catch them at Bourbon & Branch on October 17th.  Get the full session here.

Local outfit Slowey and the Boats stopped by Folkadelphia to record a session chock full of fun styles.  The instrumental quintet (which features and upright bass and steel guitar) jumped from Latin songs to Hawaiian numbers and a couple folk tunes for good measure.  Stream and download the live set below.

North Carolina’s Holy Ghost Tent Revival moved up the coast to Philadelphia to record their new LP Right State of Mind with Bill Moriarty and Joe Bisirri of Waking Studios.  You can get a free download of the title track below.
