I’m quite a sucker for crunchy guitars and ambient soundscapes. On their own, these two stylings are swell. But when combined, the result becomes supremely swell.

New Philly outfit Caracara demonstrated through their debut singles “Revelatory” and “Glacier” that they’ve earned this supremely swell title, so I’ve been pumped for more tunes from the W.C. Lindsay and Square Peg Round Hole brainchild ever since.

Today, the band has at last shared news of an upcoming debut album, Summer Megalith, by ways of a beautifully filmed teaser trailer shot by CJ Harvey. The record will be available on September 22nd via Cam Boucher’s (from Sorority Noise) label, Flower Girl Records.

Watch the teaser video below, and get ready for Caracara’s soon-to-be-released Summer Megalith. Continue reading →

The hiatus announced last March by Philly electro-dance-punk band W.C. Lindsay came with the promise of “neither stopping nor slowing down,” and last month they made good on this with the release of a debut single from a new collaborative project.

The brainchild of W.C. Lindsay’s Will Lindsay and George Legatos and Square Peg Round Hole’s Sean Gill and Carlos Pacheco-Perez, Caracara is Philly’s newest-by-name but by no means newest-to-the-scene indie rock outfit. Last week they dropped another single—the second of what I hope will be many as we wait for the release of a vaguely announced LP to come later in the year. Continue reading →

In what amounts to a Philly punk/emo supergroup, Modern Baseball’s Sean Huber and W.C. Lindsay’s Will Lindsay are teaming up for an EP under the moniker Vicky Speedboat.

The duo will release their debut EP Two Years No Basement later this month and just this week — via nerdist.com — released a video for their first single “Passing Through Wales”. The track contains all the characteristics you would expect from the power duo, including driving punk flavor with anthemic lyrics and a sharp attitude. Continue reading →

Philly’s favorite dance-punk trio, W. C. Lindsay, just released their third and final single of this year. The downtempo single, “Just Another,” strikes a new chord for the band, who are typically found onstage screaming and sweating and inciting mosh pits. This is the first song that frontman William Lindsay produced himself from start to finish, and it features airy vocals from Lucy StoneContinue reading →

Stream a frustrated new single from W.C. Lindsay, “Hang Tough”

“Beastie Boys watching The Breakfast Club at Warped Tour” has been the self-described sound of W.C. Lindsay for the past year or so. With a catchy, anthemic hook and an a cappella monologue bridge, all fueled by that college angst of pining after someone in a relationship, the Philadelphia power-pop-electric-rap-rock trio’s newest single, “Hang Tough,”is emblematic of exactly that.

If W.C. Lindsay’s new song “Sister,” is any indication of what the rest of his forthcoming series of singles will sound like, then the future is rocking brightly. It’s a driving, high energy guitar anthem that finds Lindsay shifting stylistically from his previous eclectic mish-mosh of dance, punk, and rock. Continue reading →

Featuring both a selfie stick and GoPro, the footage captures life on the road as W.C. Lindsay tour, hang out with friends, and enjoy all that their youth can offer. Continue reading →
