The latest edition of our Key Studio Sessions compilations is out today – now streamable and downloadable from Soundcloud! Dig into the best of what we’ve been doing since May with The Key Studio Sessions Vol. 5, including some sprightly indie pop from The Spinto Band, driving country-folk from Carsie Blanton, funk jams by Swift Technique and hip-hop from Ground Up. Special thanks to guest engineer Jeff White and production assistants Fred Knittel, Madeleine Lesperance, and Dan Malloy as well as photographers Kate Bracaglia, Eric Ashleigh, David Kain, Michael Passanante, Kevin Kennedy, Rachel Barrish and Bryan Shreck for sharing their work.
Following up last month’s reunion show at KFN, Philly indie-punks Trouble Everyday will play a free show at Morgan’s Pier this Saturday at 5pm, part of R5 Productions‘ free summer concert series. Check out the Facebook event page for more information. Check out their Key Studio Session here.
Before there was Bands in the Backyard, there was Trouble Everyday, the angular indie band from mid-aughts Philadelphia, fronted by present day BITBY honchos Kyle Costill and Dave Kain. When those guys decided last summer to team up again and launch a new video blog that quickly became ubiquitous, it didn’t seem too far of a reach to reunite musically as well. Original Trouble Everyday guitarist Chris Doyle (currently of Sun Airway) hopped onboard, with BITBY collaborator Josh Pannepacker (who also performs as Shorty Boy-Boy) sitting in behind the drumkit to administer those body-moving disco-punk beats. Their rhythmic end had Trouble Everyday lumped into that trendy post-punk dance revivalist craze back in the day, but their tastes always reached broader, something that might become more evident when the band plays its reunion show this weekend. If anything, as we heard in Trouble Everyday’s Key Studio Session – recorded with guest engineer Jeff White – the guys are still tight and feisty, and Costill hasn’t lost one ounce of potency from his signature howl. Download their session below (including one untitled draft of a new song that was kind of pieced together on the spot), and catch Trouble Everyday’s reunion show this Saturday at Kungfu Necktie. Trouble Everyday and Break It Up play Echo Orbiter’s CD Release Show at Kungfu Necktie, 1250 North Front Street, Sat. July 14 at 7:30 p.m. Admission to the 21+ show is $10.
