Psalm (RVA folk, pictured below) 12:00

Check out Patient Barney Penrose’s album from April called Brave Ink:

The lo-fi pop nature of the recording is intensified by its bedroom recording origin.  Check out “Villanelle” for a chamber-pop-wave sound that hums as it goes. 

Galvanize - “Annabelle”

Philadelphia’s Galvanize is a gothwave electronic duo consisting of Peter Milos and Scott Frassetto (of Moby drumming fame) and they will stop by Emilio’s this Thursday, 4/3 w/ Toxic Moxie (RVA disco punk), Short Skirts (RVA synth noise), and Machette (RVA electro DJ duo).  10 pm, FREE!

The duo (pictured below) calls themselves Daft Punk meets Queens of the Stone Age, and we’d tend to agree.

Join The Welcome Hips (feat. members of The Kindling Kind) as well as Don Babylon (pictured below) and Paul Willson tomorrow, 2/6 @ Emilio’s, FREE

Tonight! FREE!

The Northerners - “You” (promo video, directed by Frank Guzzone, Samson Madella, and Blair Warren)

The Northerners have recently released a new single called “You” on iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon - and they made this little video to help get the word out.  Hopefully this is setting the stage for a longer release at some point down the road, but we are digging this track for now.  From what we can tell from the song in the video, “You” is the culmination of over a year of playing music all over Virginia.  Two siblings, Justin and Ally Khoury, front the loose keyboard-guitar jam band and offer a killer stage presence. The recording, engineered by Jody Boyd @ Red Amp Audio and mastered by Dan Millice at Engine Room Audio, is reminiscent of Janis Joplin if she fronted Govt Mule.  This band is a fun one to watch performing and growing. Keep it up, guys! Speaking of seeing them perform…..

Get spooky with The Northerners tomorrow night for Halloween @ Emilio’s with The Dirty Picture Show! 9 pm, FREE!  Rumor is that The Northerners have a bunch of fun new covers to unleash on you!

The Iron Sights - EP

The Iron Sights are a fairly new folk rock band who just released an EP. Isaac Friend (guitar) and Blair Simpson (piano) provide vocals, usually with complicated harmonies.  Listen to “Calling It Quits” for a tumultuous break up track with layers of guitars and piano. 

RIYL: Andrew Bird, Ben Folds, Trouvere

Be sure to check out The Iron Sights on Thursday, 3/28 @ Emilio’s with Red States and The Soothsayer

Bearstorm - “De Soto” @ Emilio’s, RVA 4-21-12

This was probably the band’s best show ever.  Everyone was the right amount of nervous and the downpour outside added some gloom to the metal cocktail at Emilio’s last night.
