Philly-based psych rockers Circadian Rhythms released yet another song off of their upcoming A Passing Thought EP today. Following their recent release of “Easily”, the group has now put out it’s third song from the five track EP called “Nice To Be”, an equally upbeat song with sing-songy piano and accents of xylophone, trumpet and saxophone lines; lead singer Christopher Clark’s soft and easygoing vocals practically dance on top. It makes for a great soundtrack as you stroll through the city on one of these fine fall days we have been having. You can download “Nice To Be” below. Continue reading →

Philly Local Philes: The Circadian Rhythms’ “Sunday Nights”

The Circadian Rhythms

The year started out strong for Philly psych quartet The Circadian Rhythms. They were voted The Deli’s January band of the month, released their long-in-the-making self-titled debut, and put on an impressive set at The Fire’s annual NoLibs Winter Music Festival (despite the raging snowpocalypse outside). But if it seems like they’ve been absent since the end of spring, don’t jump to conclusions. The band simply wasted no time getting back in the lab to start writing again. Multi-instrumentalist / band mouthpiece Jim Mueller contacted us last month to say the Rhythms already recorded an EP’s worth of new tunes; you can listen below to my favorite of the bunch, “Sunday Nights,” and stream some others from the band’s SoundCloud page.

The Key Studio Sessions: Hello Shark

The past few years, the final Key Studio Session of December has been one for quiet contemplation — an echo of the headspace we all find ourselves in as we get ready to hang up a new calendar and promise ourselves that this will be our year. It may not always play out like we want it to. Things can change, external forces we don’t have any control over can muddle our goals up. But stepping from one year to the next with the right outlook, and attempting to maintain that outlook as the months pass, is crucial.

In the Philly scene this year, few did quiet contemplation quite like Hello Shark. Continue reading →
