With an album release a mere two weeks away, The National Rifle headline Johnny Brenda’s tonight. Almost Endless will be the Philly band’s first full-length, following up four EPs that span a seven year career. With glam rock vocals, spacey synths and a pulsing bass line, The Nationals Rifle’s new recordings move the quartet away from the punk vibes of their previous releases and into the world of Bowie and M83 dipped in dream pop. Tickets and information for tonight’s 21+ show with The New Connection and Crills Wilson can be found here. Below, stream “Glass Line” from Almost Endless.
Lee Fields & The Expressions
Lee Fields & The Expressions are playing World Cafe Live on Saturday, January 19th, 2013. Soul singer Fields has been at it for over forty years, evoking the sounds of soul and R&B a la Philly’s The Delfonics and James Brown. His latest album, Faithless Man, on Brooklyn’s Truth And Soul Records, is an always funky, sometimes sexy collection of classic soul and R&B. Fields is an incredible entertainer and we’re looking forward to his return to Philly in January.
