Philly’s Hemming has become a force of nature on the Philly show scene over the past year. Whether she’s performing with a band or playing solo, in a quiet living room or a loud bar, frontwoman Candice Martello’s cathartic delivery and deep ruminations have an uncanny ability to make a crowd stop and listen.

Weathervane Music’s Shaking Through released their first session of the season, featuring Philly punk legends The Dead Milkmen.

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 →
