Philly’ Psalmships is known for sending shivers down spines through his hauntingly pensive “ghost folk” and he achieves this yet again on new single “Flesh Turn”. Set to appear on his forthcoming LP I Sleep Alone, the new track is quietly compressed both lyrically and sonically. Britton’s vocals are low in the mix and barely a whisper over the slow sounds of the lone acoustic guitar. As he sings “I see your flesh turn”, it’s as if he sees the listener for all that he/she is; their flaws, sorrow, heartaches and triumphs are easily read. In a way it’s cathartic, as Britton takes on the pain himself. Download “Flesh Turn” for free below.

Matt Marchinowski of Big School Records is moving out of Philadelphia.  To celebrate his time here, Marchinowski has pieced together a snapshot of the local music scene with a 27-track mixtape called Philamixington II, available as a free download via his Tumblr.  The second installment in the local music mixtape series, this collection samples various genres, circles and side projects with tracks from radio favorites like Cheers Elephant (pictured), basement staples Roof Doctor and The Hundred Acre Woods and new-projects-from-old-buddies like Avery Rosewater.  From Marchinowski:

Although April will see my moving out of Philadelphia for the peaceful confines of the sticks I will still consider its scene ‘home’. It wasn’t easy narrowing this collection down to 27 jawns but I can assure you it won’t be the last notch in the Philamixington series.
