GROCER
The Philadelphia trio known as Grocer is comprised of three distinct vocalist, each with a unique voice both on and off their respective instruments. They flicker between moments of brash chromaticism, saccharine pop sensibility, and rhythmic acrobatics. Their compositions are both meticulous and volatile, while their live performances are lauded for explosive chemistry with cheeky curiosity.
Just on the heels of the release of their formative EP Scatter Plot, the band returned to their subterranean laboratory to further prod and pull at their musical specimens. On their new LP, Bless Me, the band emerges with some striking discoveries. Palpable melodic figures interact with an ever shifting landscape of rhythmic and harmonic structures. Bless Me encapsulates the band’s enigmatic live energy like lightning in a jar. Tracked live in their own basement and further realized with mixing help from Nate Amos (Water From Your Eyes, This Is Lorelei). The final product is electric, magnetic, and radio-active.

KAL MARKS
Veterans of the Boston music scene, Kal Marks has been pushing themselves and their sound for over a decade. Known for their explosive live show and cathartic aggression, Kal Marks has been met with critical acclaim from outlets like NPR, Fader, and Stereogum. Their tireless work ethic keeps them out on the road, throughout the US and most recently their first tour of Europe and the UK. Known for being one of the loudest and heaviest “indie rock” bands out there, they’ve shared bills with Big Business, Black Midi, METZ, and True Widow. The band will be recording their fourth full-length album in July 2021 at Machines With Magnets studio, and has expanded to a four piece lineup with guitarist Christina Puerto (Bethlehem Steel).

HER NEW KNIFE
her new knife is a noise rock band from Philadelphia. In 2023 they released ‘lead dreams/flayed so light’ on Julia’s War. For fans of metallic textures and broken guitars.
