Philly rockers Loose Tooth released their latest album Big Day in April, but have recently created a very necessary addition to the record: a recipe book. Featured on Impose Magazine, Loose Tooth has concocted a specific meal and accompanying cooking details for each track on the album. Because every tasty track needs a tasty treat. It’s basic physics, really.

While some of the songs seemed destined for a food companion — i.e. “Garlic Soup,” possibly “Fish Boy” — others are a bit more of stretch, and thus thoroughly enjoyable to read and map connections from the song to its food counterpart. Continue reading →

Philadelphia rockers Loose Tooth have been teasing Big Day Day (the big day when Big Day drops) for quite some time now, but a lot of their new material has been kicking around since last summer. In July, they performed five new songs during their Key Studio Session, foreshadowing the heavy riffage of their sophomore record. We got treated to the studio version of one of those tunes last month, and now, we’re getting a second one. Stream “Roach Motel” now via CLRVYNT. Continue reading →

Philly DIY scene faves Loose Tooth gave us a taste of the new rippers they’ve been writing last fall when they appeared on The Key Studio Sessions last fall; of the six songs they played in that set, five were brand new, from an album that was still in the TBD zone. As of today, details on that record have been D’d. Continue reading →

Local outfit Loose Tooth join their friends in Shelf Life, Blue Smiley and Poppies at Kung Fu Necktie tonight. The folks in LT caught our ears with last year’s excellent Easy Easy East, so it was exciting to hear what the four-piece had up their sleeves as a follow-up when they stopped by for a Key Studio Session earlier this summer. Check out a video of new number “Roach Motel” below and get more information for tonight’s 21+ show here.

The Key Studio Sessions: Loose Tooth

I finally managed to see Philadelphia punk outfit Loose Tooth this spring. We’ve dug their music for a while over here at The Key, ever since the first songs from 2015’s Easy Easy East began to surface in the blog world — but it wasn’t till the band was paired with Abi Reimold on the release show for the latter’s Wriggling that I got to experience the force of nature these four Philadelphians are in concert. From the stage at Johnny Brenda’s, a torrent of interlocking guitars by Kian Sorouri and Kyle Laganella were led by intricate bass lines from Larissa Sapko and thunder drums from Christian Bark – it was dynamic, reaching from simmering lows to scorching highs. And it made me super psyched to hear the new record that’s wrapping up production at Headroom Studios.

When Loose Tooth stepped in the XPN studio to record their Key Session this past weekend, it was a double treat of sorts – firstly because of the six songs they played, only one (“Lizzy”) was previously featured on Easy. The rest are getting their first airing here, and I’m purely pumped about how fierce they sound. Continue reading →

Philly’s Loose Tooth have been on our radar after working in cahoots with a number of local artists – The Fleeting Ends, Mumblr, and Clique just to name a few – while putting out their catchy indie rock music. Now there is even more to love with the release of their debut full-length Easy Easy East off their label Fleeting Youth Records. The album is full of that noisy, bedroom rock that we got a taste of with “Skinny Chewy” earlier this month. Continue reading →
