On the heels of a series of much-adored singles, EPs, and video sessions, transcendent pop band Superhumanoids returns with its debut full-length, Exhibitionists. On the album the Los Angeles three-piece shows off a sound that's ambitious and awesomely precise. Brilliant harmonies and arrangements abound, as the group showcases its trademark blend of diverse instrumentation and driving electronics. It is otherworldly pop at its finest.
Sarah Chernoff, Cameron Parkins, and Max St. John prize meticulousness—every sound you hear on these recordings is the result of deliberate, nearly obsessive dedication to their craft. Recorded and produced by the band itself, the album was mixed by Ariel Rechtshaid (Charli XCX, Blood Orange, Major Lazer, Active Child) and Doug Boehm (GIRLS, Guided By Voices).
Superhmanoids' studio ethic is matched by its devotion to dynamic and inspiring live performance. The band has gained a steadfast fan-base across the U.S. and Europe on tours with Local Natives, Active Child, Balam Acab, Cold War Kids, Class Actress, Cults, and Wild Beasts. The group will hit the road again soon to share their latest creation with old fans and new friends.
Called "one of Philly's most imaginative bands" by Philadelphia's WXPN, Tutlie carries both the dark and the light in equal measure. Formed by Jessie Radlow in 2010 while attending college in West Chester, Pennsylvania, the band has seen many lineup shifts on the path to refining the vision Radlow first set forth. In 2012, producers Drew Taurisano and Asher Brooks joined the outfit as they began to demo what would eventually become the bands 2014 debut LP Young Cries.
Young Cries, described as "expressive and expansive" by WXPN, is a far-reaching sonic experience, marrying the unique and exceptional songwriting of Radlow with the immersive production and texture as developed by the band and it's producers Taurisano and Brooks. Simply stated by Performer Mag, Young Cries is "smart, intricate chamber pop that will challenge your imagination."
Moon Bounce is Philadelphia’s warped electronic maestro, Corey Regensburg. Taking cues from classic R&B, hip-hop and even the rhythmic lurching of metal, Corey’s recognizable sound is the culmination of his unique artistic endeavors. Walking the fine line between creation and disintegration, his output combines soulful vocals with jagged percussion; calming, yet on the verge of falling apart.
In May 2011, Moon Bounce dropped his debut EP, Darn Your Best Frock, which was met with praise and intrigue by some of the most notable tastemaker blogs. Prefix Mag described the “vibrant spacey vibes” as “organic, cohesive and wholly enjoyable” while Potholes In My Blog praised his “stylish production”. The closing track “Jealousy March” spawned a hallucinogenic and beautifully shot video that nicely accompanied the haphazard beats and drones.
After sharing the stage with the likes of Shlohmo, Teen Daze, Groundislava and ANR, Corey released a number of singles, including the XLR8R featured “Telephone”. In fact, he had the starring role in the track’s video, showing a bit of his comedic personality and letting fans know that everything should not be taken seriously all the time. Working quickly and only stopping briefly to focus on producing hip-hop beats (another weapon in Corey’s musical arsenal), Moon Bounce teamed up with Chill Mega Chill Records and prepared to turn heads again with his sophomore Wheelhouse EP.
Wheelhouse’s classical piano infusion, pitch shifted vocals and syncopated bass fills work to create a serene, groove-obsessed atmosphere. Described by Chill Mega Chill as having a “knack for making ethereal, yet intricate, productions that feel loose and endless as space itself while simultaneously maintaining a precise and mature balance”, Moon Bounce’s vision continues to grow and his creativity shines in an otherwise predictable musical climate. Get on board or get left behind.
