Free Download of the Moment: Arc In Round’s ::::remixed::::

AIRLocal folks including Ape School, Tadoma and King Britt – as well as outside-Philly names Benoît Pioulard and Lymbyc System – tried their hand at remixing Arc In Round‘s layered and heavy debut LP in the new ::::remixed:::: collection, available today as a free download. The set contains eight reconstructions of songs like “Spirit” (morphed into a driving krautrock rager by Pink Skull) and “II” (made all pulsing and dreamy by A Sunny Day in Glasgow), as well as two unreleased songs – “Even” and “Days Untried.” Give it a listen below, and download it at Bandcamp.


Tonight’s Concert Picks: Our Griffins at North Star Bar, Benoit Pioulard at the First Unitarian Chapel

OGEaston, PA native DJ Brown, aka Our Griffins, is at North Star Bar‘s Victorian Dining Room series tonight. Brown hasn’t released anything since his first EP two years ago, but he’s been in the studio for the past few months, and you can bet he’ll be using tonight’s set to flesh out some of that new material. The new record was recorded in Dallas, TX by Grammy award winning producer Stuart Sikes, so there’s no doubt the spotlight will soon be lent more and more to this gifted young songwriter. Supporting bands are blues-rockers Penrose, who just released a new album, and the wonderful folk duo Sun Flights whose lovely harmony-laden tunes will send you home singing. The free 21+ show begins at 9 p.m. Below, watch Our Griffins’ recent Random Tea Room session.
