New Myrrias Single Release Available for Streaming & Purchase

Myrrias have a new single release. "All Alone" may add to you feeling some kind of way on this overcast day. It's also accompanied by a cover of Nico's "60/40" and an original instrumental piece called "on your own," which were all co-produced with Jeff Zeigler at Uniform Recording. Myrrias recently wrapped up a run with White Laces, and said farewell to drummer Casey Bell, who is moving to Nevada.


Treat Y'rself Fest at PhilaMOCA August 15

Saturday sounds like an optimal time to indulge in some excellent music, food, and crafts. The daylong Treat Y’rself Fest, taking place at PhilaMOCA, offers a comprehensive experience with an additional bonus proceeds will go toward October’s March to End Rape Culture.  A dozen artists are slated to perform, including Kississippi whose intricate lyrical painting set on an acoustic canvas. Myrrias will perform as a duo, inducing a soothing psychedelic daydream. While the jangly art pop of Mercury Girls, the surf-garage-punk combo of The Pretty Greens (featuring Mike Writes), the fuzzy shoegazing haze of Ghost Gum and garage-punk quartet Littler are among those on this packed program. Get there early and treat yourself. PhilaMOCA 531 N. 12th St., 1pm, $10-$12, All Ages –Michael Colavita

Louie Louie Cassingle Release Show at JB’s July 23

Fledgling garage-pop outfit Louie Louie will be celebrating the release of its debut cassingle “Out In The Street” this evening at Johnny Brenda’s. The all-female quartet, made up of Emily Robb (of Lantern) on guitar/vox alongside Leslie Burnette on organ/vox, Emily Eichelberger on bass/vox, and Jenna Robb on drums/vox, harken back to the innocent sounds of 60’s groups like The Ronettes and The Shangri-Las, except with amped up instrumentation influenced by the grit and grime of Philly’s DIY scene. Louie Louie will be opening for Robb’s other all-female dream-pop project Myrrias, who will be saying “farewell” to its current drummer Casey Bell (Break It Up). It will be Bell’s last show with the band before heading off to Nevada. They’ll also be joined by good pals Long Spells (featuring members of A Sunny Day in Glasgow, The Fantastic Imagination, Arc in Round, and Public Record) and Bell’s other project Fine Motor with boyfriend Dan Morse (Wigwams, Break It Up).

A Touch of Wisdom From Laser Background at JB's March 7

With a forthcoming LP Correct already sitting in the can, Laser Background released a new EP Kelly Wisdom earlier this week. The album, whose recording was split between Lake Balaton, Hungary and a cabin in rural Pennsylvania, retains Andy Molholt’s slightly ajar, candy-coated, psych-experiencing sound, implementing synth and drum machine with his distinct, quirky, higher pitched vocals. However, these songs also touch on an internal searching/reflection, anchored beneath that dreamy spider web of instrumentation. This lineup runs deep including the four-piece ensemble of Myrrias, whom take synth-fueled dream pop and augment it with dark, jagged edges, creating hypnotic layers of brooding in the process. Drone Ranger develops a thick, hazy psychedelic atmosphere, inviting your mind to temporarily explore uncharted territory that is guided by a hard-rocking hand. The inventive yet pop sensible tunes of New York’s Zula complete a billing that asks you to reach out without pushing too hard. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Busses Opening for Exit Verse at Boot & Saddle Dec. 10

Comfortingly expansive tones, the trio Busses have a manner of incrementally layering tunes in a way that leaves listeners at a new destination by song’s end. The transitional transporting process is easy to get wrapped up in, creating dynamic layers intermingling clairvoyant vocals with groove sustaining instrumentation that is cohesive while still demonstrating an undomesticated edge. Tonight, the group, whose sophomore album, Wizard of the Eye, is due out February 17th of next year, performs in the middle slot at Boot & Saddle. Myrrias, combining the forces of Mikele Edwards (Arc in Round), April Harkanson (Downtown Club), Emily Robb (Lantern), and Casey Bell (Break It Up), open the evening dishing out a grey-clouded atmosphere of on-the-go, in-your-head rockers, eliciting the duality of dreary daydreams. The show is headlined by Chicago-based Geoff Farina-led trio Exit Verse, whose self-titled album released last month, is guitar rock with a casual-friendly sensibility. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8:30pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita
