We’re about a month out until the Vita and the Woolf album Tunnels finally drops on June 16, and as admitted in the band’s Audiotree Live session, it’s an LP that’s been a long time coming. The band recorded the session with Audiotree late last month, and it just hit the interwebs this week.

Aside from sounding crisp on a dope tracklist that mixes new tunes and favorites from last year (“Brett,” “Sun Drop,” “Qiet,” “Diamond Hall,” “Feline” and
“Super Ranger”), the band offers a few glimpses into what they’ve been up to in the year since the current lineup fell into place. Continue reading →

Philly punk dreamscapers Creepoid made a stop by Audiotree Live to do a session a couple weeks ago, and it’s now available to watch on Audiotree’s website and YouTube. The local fourpiece’s packs a punch with heavy distortion and airy harmonies, whipping out songs like “Waste” and “Crisco.” The band also talks about their plethora of SXSW shows, feeling “old”, and their evolving album artwork. Watch the session below. Continue reading →

Back in November, Anthony Green and Good Old War stopped by Audiotree in Chicago to perform six songs off Green’s newest album Young Legs and discuss the importance of writing honest music kong other topics. A tight set and a stellar vocal take by Anthony Green make this live session a must-see for anyone who was not able to make it out to his huge show at Union Transfer. Check out the video below.

Restorations recently announced their next local headlining show, an intimate set filled with “a ton of new songs” at south Philly’s Boot & Saddle. The post rock band has had a productive year with the release of LP 2, and a plethora of live shows including a performance at Audiotree and their trek down to Gainesville’s Fest. With more new material apparently on the way, it is safe to say Restorations will continue to make a mark on Philadelphia’s punk and post rock scenes for the foreseeable future. Before their February headlining show you can catch them opening for The Early November at Union Transfer (12/21) or for The Bouncing Souls at Asbury Park (12/29). Their set at Boot & Saddle will be supported by local punk band The Holy Mess and Dogs on Acid (ex-Algernon Cadwallader). It’s $12, and you can get your tickets here.

Watch Restorations’ lively Audiotree session

Philadelphia post rock band Restorations stopped by Audiotree a few weeks ago for an energetic in-studio session. This is an awesome performance by the band, and it is awesome to see in the video that they still get into their music while playing in a studio. Their rumbling sound, which ranges from mellow to forceful, is exceptional, with distortion-filled choruses that pound as frontman Jon Loudon yells his lines. As Audiotree says on their site: “If a band sounds great, it’s because they played great.”

It is no surprise that Restorations sound so good live; with an underground cult following they have been playing shows for five years and are currently on tour as we speak. This Philly band continues to grow in popularity and in skill, with their latest release, LP 2, coming out on SideOneDummy back in April. There are not any Philadelphia shows in the queue for Restorations at the moment, so make sure to watch the live Audiotree session here to get your fix. Below, a Restorations track from the Key Studio Sessions archives.
