St. James and The Apostles (Five Year Anniversary!)
St. James & The Apostles is three Philly cousins who play sweaty,
heavy, organ-powered... psychedelic soul. Think The Animals meets
Queens of the Stone Age or Deep Purple meets James Brown 'Live at the
Apollo'. After innumerable gigs, the 3 of them headed down to the
basement and began working on their 2nd album ’Via Dolorosa’ (2014),
using a back-to-basics approach, using only 8-track reel-to-reel.
Gondola is a heavy acid-psych-rock trio with Rocky Rinaldi (guitar, vocals), Jordan Blumling (bass, vocals) and Tim Plunkett (Drums) from Philadelphia. Their sound is total sorcery. Snarling guitar soaring over sinister bass lines with lyrics conjured from the void, balanced with the attack, resonance and depth of the beat will leave you questioning this reality.
The Company Corvette
"Heavy riff-spewing, groove-laden, psychedelically inclined, occasionally laid back, mostly loud, wah-wah-drenched, stoner rock-gone-metal-and back.... est. 2006, Philadelphia, PA. The Company Corvette's got its third album in the works.... got new tunes... wanna race?"
