New Track: "Better Than You" - Petal

“Better Than You” is the first single off Magic Gone, the forthcoming album from Petal, which is due out on June 15 via Run For Cover Records. Juxtaposing the rough grit of the instrumentation with the clarity of the vocals, provided by Kiley Lotz, a narrative of personal/private struggle against the external projection emerges. Finding a balance between the bright and the bleak, it's emotively energetic. Petal, along with Body Guard, will be support for Cave People’s record release celebration on Thursday, April 12 at Boot & Saddle.

Weekend Warrior, October 27 - 29

We know. What to do? What to do…this Halloween weekend? We love the all hallow-est of eves! And Philly does not have a shortage of diverse things to do. If you find the idea of swanky surroundings with the echo of groove-oriented experimental beats flowing through your ears and tarot card readings blowing your mind, Final Friday’s AfroFuturist Affair Costume Ball at the Philadelphia Art Museum this evening with locals Moor Mother, Sammus, and Fholston Paradigm is a no-brainer. And since things will be wrapping up relatively early, you still have plenty of time to catch Dark Thoughts at the LAVA Space benefit. On Saturday, the 8th annual TJ Kong Halloween Murdershow will be doing debaucherous things in the below ground lair of Underground Arts. The familiar faces of Levee Drivers and Tutlie will be joined by sexified newcomers OOLALA and Shy Boyz. And if you don’t really feel like leaving the Fishtown/Kensington/NoLibs area, tomorrow will be a nice evening to take a buzzed walk to your favorite neighborhood DIY space Everybody Hits for Hurry’s 2nd Annual Halloween Spooktacular, with pals Shannen Moser, Cave People, and Anomie. All proceeds will go to The Humane League of Philadelphia. For those who really haven’t had enough this Halloween weekend, you might need to chill out at Union Transfer, where Petal will be performing a solo set, opening for the always captivating Julien Baker and Half Waif. Wherever you find yourself, enjoy that you are there - cheers! – Alexis V.

Weekend Warrior, December 9 - 11

With the strength to reveal emotively vulnerable narratives, giving those pensions melodic instrumental legs to run on, Petal, a.k.a. Kiley Lotz, flourishes, sharing confidential tales that bloom with beautiful, rolling, instrumental momentum. She captures personal imagery, which realistically illustrates a full spectrum of emotion, while simultaneously unlocking universal threads. On Sunday night, Petal plants the initial seeds for fellow Run For Cover labelmates, Pinegrove, who shell out contemplative, earnest, alt-country stews, bringing one in close, and then forging fairly enthusiastically ahead on the heels of releasing Instigator, Kevin Devine & The Goddamn Band welds insightful, society-reflecting songwriting with exuberant powerpop possibilities.
