goodnight/goodluck

  • Philadelphia’s goodnight/goodluck doesn’t shy away from thunderous drums, wiry guitars, and understated, yet vibrant melodies. The band pulls equally from the chaos of punk acts like Japandroids, Bear Vs. Shark, and Constantines as well as the intricacies of modern indie like Rainer Maria, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Minus the Bear, and Tokyo Police Club.
    A self-recorded four-track demo was released in April 2017, and picked up the very next day and favorably reviewed by WXPN’s The Key. Buoyed by the positive reception and a string of well-received live performances, the band recorded their debut EP the following winter with Joe Reinhart (Hop Along/Algernon Cadwallader) at The Headroom in Philadelphia. “missing” was released on May 12, 2018.
    goodnight/goodluck is Sarah Puleo, Eric Zrinsky, Ed Taylor, Jayson Verdibello, and Alex Brown.

Camera Thief

The End of America

  • The End of America is a band of friends, singers and travelers who blend three-part harmony with rock and Americana. The Philadelphia-based outfit harnesses a style that resonates with fans of Ryan Adams, CSNY and Dawes.All front-men of previous bands, Brendon Thomas, James Downes and Trevor Leonard met on tour in 2005. They went on to form a trio that highlights their vocal chemistry and captures the raw honesty of their performances. TEOA recently released their debut LP (self-titled), a follow-up to their previous EPs, Shakey and Steep Bay.The new album was written in the wake of a series of close calls: one involving a van accident on tour, and the other when drummer Jarrod Pedone was involved in a hit-and-run that left him in a coma for months. Fortunately the band walked away unscathed, and Jarrod made a stunning recovery. The following winter all members relocated to Philadelphia to write and hone their new sound. Joining forces with longtime friend and engineer Dave Downham in the producer’s chair, the band tracked 11 new songs at nearby Gradwell House Recordings in Haddon Heights, NJ.

MINKA

Kuf Knotz

  • MC/ Poet/Songwriter Kuf Knotz and classically trained Harpist/Pianist/Vocalist Christine Elise have combined forces to create a new album. The unlikely pair connected and built the project with a similar vision, wanting to create positive, forward-thinking music driven by a strong message. Both individuals are intrinsically motivated to foster community growth through musical expression.
