New Track: "Jawbreaker" - Laser Background

Below is the latest dreamy composition from Laser Background, a.k.a. Andy Molholt,  called "Jawbreaker." It's the first single from Molholt's upcoming full-length album, and was co-produced with Ava Luna's Carlos Hernandez and Julian Fader at Gravesend Recordings, which resides inside Brooklyn DIY space The Silent Barn. Andy shared, "This song is for all the people who feel helpless. This song is a shattering call to free yourself from the toxic boundaries that we create for ourselves. Life is too short! Don't waste it." Laser Background will be welcoming the arrival of the hand-cut lathe 7" single at Johnny Brenda's tomorrow night, along with Mock Suns, who also recently dropped a new LP Stay True, and Sun Hat.

Philly for Bernie Sanders Concert at Boot & Saddle Dec. 2

Though Bernie Sanders's chances of becoming the Democratic nominee is looking rather bleak right now, the Vermont Senator’s presidential campaign has inspired a bunch of our locals to get involved and contribute. If that sounds like something you’d like to do, then swing on by Boot & Saddle this evening, and do your part - all while enjoying performances by experimental pop outfit Son Step, psych popsters Laser Background, and oddball-folk hooligans On The Water. 100% of the profits from the event (after venue expenses) will be donated to Bernie Sanders’s organization, which refuses to take contributions from any corporations and lobbyists. If you’d like to give more, they will also be collecting individual donation envelopes, provided by the campaign. Come out tonight and show your support for an alternative way of thinking in America! Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman

Laser Background Opening Teen & Ava Luna at JB's Oct. 25

Capturing experience from a youth inspired, playful perspective, Laser Background dishes out a marshmallow pillow of airy psych-pop. With some new material on the docket, the Andy Molholt-led group puts a Willy Wonka spin on their songs. The shapes and atmosphere of the resulting cathartically twisted sound doesn’t play by standard rules. In this sonic space, imagination reigns supreme. Tonight, at Johnny Brenda’s, Laser Background lays the groundwork for the distinctively funky art-R&B of Brooklyn’s Ava Luna, whose jubilant tones are continuously in motion, while the vocally rich, soothing sounds of Teen headline. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $12, 21+ - Michael Colavita
