Roof Doctor Record Release Show at PHILAMOCA March 29th

Celebrate the release of Mobile Freedom Home, the sophomore LP from Roof Doctor, tonight at PhilaMOCA. Mobile Freedom Home finds Roof Doctor in a finely polished place; each song seems to carry a natural, casual groove. Mark Harper’s lyrics offer an odd, comforting effect, one that generates a welcoming atmosphere in spite of their melancholy tone/message. Roof Doctor is rather deceptive musically, at first the sound appears simple; however, that simplistic vibe is a byproduct of tightly knit compositions rather than sparse instrumentation.  Eclectic noise-rockers Mumblr alongside the sleepwalking sonic experimentalists Son Step. Long Island’s Soda Bomb round out the evening blending a variety of rock with garage/punk tendencies.  PhilaMOCA 531 N. 12th St., 8pm $5, All Ages, -Michael Colavita 


New Mumblr EP Available for Streaming

After announcing the future release of their LP Full of Snakes (due out in 2014 via Fleeting Youth Records), Mumblr just posted a new six-song EP entitled Bang Bang that you can stream in its entirety below. They'll be performing next in Philly on Sunday, December 29 at The Fire as part of Kat Kat Records' Phest Two. Enjoy!


The Weaks EP Release Show at PhilaMOCA Dec. 22

As the week draws to a close, PhilaMOCA hosts an evening with The Weaks, featuring a pair of ex-Dangerous Ponies in Chris Baglivo and Evan Bernard. The band releases their debut 7” EP The World is a Terrible Place & I Hate Myself and Want to Die today, which includes the single “Nietzsche’s Harvest Song.” While the EP’s title suggests that the group won’t shy away from serious emotional topics, they still have the potential to deliver joyous, guitar-ripping power pop. The lineup will also include the scatterbrain musical styling of Mumblr - part garage-fuzz, part pop, part pure aggression, and to make matters even more interesting, add an air of unpredictability as songs take unexpected turns at undefined moments. The dreary emotive minimalism of Queen Jesus (formerly King God) and Dogs on Acid, with former members of Algernon Cadwallader and Glocca Morra, round out the bill.

Taste the Poison of Mumblr at KFN Jan. 13

How to explain Mumblr? A name that prompts major eye-rolling; a sound that more or less tells categorization to go to hell. Tonight the local four-piece play Kung Fu Necktie, and once again, beg discussion of how exactly it is that they fit into the “fuzz punk” category when they don’t stay fixed on more than one genre for an entire song - or even, as explosive album opener “Holy Ghost” shows, more than twenty seconds. Careening between crashing aggression and moments of forced restraint, there is no method whatsoever of nailing down what exactly these guys do, but if you’re prepared to have all your preconceptions of what constitutes “garage rock” and “time signatures” and “song structure” go right out the window, then Mumblr is your poison. Joined by the punishing but pleasing sounds of Point Breeze and the brutal, crusted-over classic riffs of Ape!, it's going to be a night that defies logic. - Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N.
