This week’s Key Studio Session comes courtesy of Johnny Showcase. The band has a great backstory (which you can read here) and plays great music (which you can hear below). For this session, they gave us a sneak peek of their new LP The Octopus!, out October 6th. Check out “Night of the Electric Love Phoenix” below and download the full set here.

Folkadelphia brought Hemming in for a live session. The project of local singer-songwriter Candice Martello gained quick traction after appearing on a VH1 show, which led to opening slots for Rachel Yamagata and now Chris Cornell. See her live at the Merriam Theater on October 15th and listen to songs from Martello’s self-titled debut below.

Get a free download of Rhett Miller‘s “Kiss Me On the Fire Escape” below, taken from his recent LP The Traveler. He’ll be in town on October 22nd for a show at Union Transfer with Bandidos and Philly locals Shark Tape; tickets and info here.

Local group Acres of Diamonds are back with new song “Atlantic.” The single comes three years after the band’s last effort, the elegant and autumnal Animal Trust. Check out the new song below band see the band at Ortlieb’s on October 17th.
