The Week’s Best MP3 Downloads, incl. Calexico, Quilt, The Naked Sun

Bringing their sunny psychedelic sounds to Philadelphia, Boston’s Quilt recently stopped by the Folkadelphia studios to record a live session full of warmth and color.  The 60s vibe of the band seems so natural it’s easy to slip into a dreamy daze while listening to the five tracks they recorded.  Stream and download “Arctic Shark” below and head over to Folkadelphia’s Bandcamp to get the rest of the session.  Quilt will be back in town this Saturday, February 16th for the 2013 Northern Liberties Winter Music Festival at The Fire.  Tickets and information can be found here.

Tonight’s Concert Picks: Bleeding Rainbow at Johnny Brenda’s, Rush at Wells Fargo Center, Calexico at Union Transfer, John Hiatt and The Combo at McCarter Theater

The fact that their forthcoming album release date got pushed back by a few months should give you even more incentive to see Philly’s Bleeding Rainbow tonight at Johnny Brenda’s.  The punk quartet will no doubt be playing tracks from Yeah Right (which comes out on January 29th through Kanine Records) when they take the stage with Far-Out Fangtooth and Heavy Medical.  Tickets to the 21+ show are $10; doors open at 8:00 p.m. and music starts at 9:15 p.m.  Watch the video for Bleeding Rainbow’s single “Pink Ruff” below.
