Martello will be joined by members of Cayetana and Three Man Cannon as her backing band to perform a song from her self-titled album that came out last year. The session will be done at Miner Street Recording. For folks who are used to seeing Martello play solo with her electric guitar, this will be a unique experience of seeing her work with a band.

“Green & Yellow” is the latest song created through Weathervane Music’s Shaking Through series, written and performed by Paris born group The Dove & The Wolf over a weekend in Fishtown’s Miner Street Recordings studio.
8 years ago, in a dark moment of dissatisfaction with his life and music in general, Keith Pierce sat down with an acoustic guitar. The chords he strummed would form the backbone of “Tear Me Away”, a song his band Northern Arms recorded for Weathervane Music’s Shaking Through series back in January.
It’s no secret that Philadelphia experimental rock duo Pattern is Movement is calling it quits. But before they announced their break-up, they promised to go out with a bang – and part of that bang was recording a song for Philadelphia non-profit Weathervane Music’s Shaking Through series.

According to Shaking Through, The Dead Milkmen’s track (entitled “Prisoner’s Cinema”) is:
“a celebration of the every-day people who had to clean up after rock-stars and their debaucherous episodes of the past.”
In the video for the track, below, members discuss the difference between live shows and recording, the late Dave Schulthise (Dave Blood), record label pressures, and the all-encompassing theme of the working-class in comparison to rockstars. Continue reading →
Weathervane Music will live-stream a Shaking Through recording session with Pattern Is Movement this Friday and Saturday. Despite having just released a self-titled record that took five years to create, this will be Andrew Thiboldeaux and Chris Ward’s final musical adventure together (for now, at least).
This month’s Shaking Through session is a moving episode featuring Pennsylvania’s Lewis & Clarke, the musical project of Lou Rogai. The installment was curated by Strand of Oaks’ Tim Showalter, a Shaking Through alum himself from 2010. During his time at Miner Street Recording, Rogai created a new song called “The Silver Sea,” which you can listen to below.
Last month Creepoid premiered the first single, “Sunday,” from its upcoming self-titled album on No Idea Records. Here’s the video for it, and it’s quite laid back for what we’ve seen from the band in the past.
Despite the album being their first since 2011, it’s not the first time we’re from them since then. The video for “Golden String” by BitBY was released in 2012. And remember when Shaking Through did a video featuring Creepoid in the wake of 2011’s Horse Heaven? Yeah, well, the song in that video, “Old Tree,” is on the upcoming self-titled album. The tracks have obviously been lingering a little bit.
But the video for “Sunday” doesn’t evoke that time of laziness late in a weekend. It’s simply slow-motion shots paired with a song that’s pushing deep into the couch. It’s the length of every note played in this song that makes it match this simple video. Whether it’s the long lead guitar notes, the breath-y singing or the tambourine that slaps back in the speakers, it’s not too much. Perhaps that’s what works for both the video and the song.
Creepoid is the featured album in this week’s edition of Unlocked. Download the song “Baptism” in Monday’s post, read Tuesday’s album review and check back tomorrow and Friday for an interview and more.
