After nearly two years working at Head Room Studios in North Philly arts space Big Mama’s House, local art-pop trio Hop Along wrapped up work on its next full length album, Get Disowned, just last week. On Sunday, singer-guitarist Frances Quinlan announced on the band’s Tumblr “OUR NEW ALBUM IS DONE (and I am delirious)”; she appeared after-hours on WKDU to chat and premier the album version of “Tibetian Pop Stars”, and last night, the band posted the track as a free download on its Bandcamp page. It’s a kind of epic collision of the band’s preferred styles: overdriven punk, singalong folk and hooky pop.
The Sidekicks are a punk band from Cleveland, Ohio. They are currently signed to Red Scare.

LUTHER has a hard time standing still. After two years and hundreds of shows, LUTHER has put the finishing touches on their debut full length. "Let's Get You Somewhere Else" finds LUTHER honing their nervous energy to create not only a more straightforward, driving album but also a momentum that will keep the band from slowing down anytime soon.
Ma Jolie is a band from Philadelphia in the vein of Superchunk, Samiam and shit that sounds like that . With members who have all been in multiple active bands, they put together a collection of songs that bring to mind the best of the late 90s punk world. Combining tight, fun rhythms, clever guitar hooks, and catchy vocals, they recently recorded their first record at the Headroom Studio in Philly. They are looking forward to releasing the record soon, but for now, the entire record is available for download on their Bandcamp page - http://majolie.bandcamp.com/
