Philly bedroom-pop group Cyberbully Mom Club recently released FOOTWEARand you may or may not have just a couple more weeks left to listen. They added on the Bandcamp page, “disappearing in april because this is a secret, temporary march ep.” Believe what you will, but Footwear holds some goodies, like the up-tempo “Philadelphia II,” with lyrics like,”I’ll walk for hours with a racing brain / And I’ll always end up home / In Philadelphia / I never feel alone.”

FOOTWEAR also takes on a somber lo-fi feel, following their pumped up full-band track, “Friends,” released in February. Continue reading →

Philly five-piece Oldermost are set to release their upcoming album, It’s Difficult to Know Anything At All, next week on March 24, and we just got another taste of the variety this upcoming EP seems to hold. The Americana/rock-infused group released a video for the track “A Drink (Or Two)” back in February, in which frontman Bradford Bucknum gallivants through the streets of Philly with a TV in a stroller.

Their latest release, “Electric Light Eyes,” is a laid-back track infused with inquisitive lyricism that the band promised to bring with this new EP. They admitted on their blog that this track holds one of Bucknum’s favorite lines (one they say “could serve as a subtitle to the album,”) in which Bucknum croons, ”Just to know how much there still is to know.” Continue reading →

Philly native and soul singer-songwriter Aaron Parnell Brown (of Aaron and the Spell) recently released teasers of tracks from his upcoming album The Tin Man. You may have recently caught him on XPN for “Philly’s Local Pick of the Day.”

Brown’s latest offering is a downright impressive rendition of Stevie Wonder’s “Golden Lady,” paying homage to one of his “all-time favorite songs.” The cover emphasizes the fact that Brown has the whole neo-soul thing down, while still deserving comparisons to the greats. After all, there’s a lot of hype surrounding his sophomoric album, considering 2012′s Sing helped him earn comparisons to soul masters like Otis Redding and Ben Harper. Listen to the cover below.
