Work Drugs is a smooth pop collective from Philadelphia by way of the Florida Keys. Work Drugs makes music specifically for sexting and yachting. Work Drugs is Tom Crystal, Ben Louisiana, Mr. Kansas City, and Jonas. They are currently supporting their 2014 release Insurgents, released on Bobby Cahn Records. Work Drugs have supported shows for Two Door Cinema Club, Phoenix, Peter Bjorn and John, Memoryhouse, and Band of Horses, to name a few. Work Drugs are winners of the 2011 Beijing Film and Art Festival's coveted Crying Monkey Award.
The City And Horses
The City and Horses is a Philadelphia-based recording project and band led by children's TV producer, Marc Cantone. The group genre-bends the indie pop spectrum from lofi folk to power to chamber to synth.
They have released three albums, “I Don’t Want to Dream,” “We Will Never Be Discovered” and, most recently, “Strange Range” on Paper Garden Records. This new album finds the band expanding on their quirky indie pop persona with a (strange) range of songs that touch on the sadomasochism of anxiety disorders, the real or imagined simplicity of the 1990s and lovingly loveless relationships.
Though the band never tours and rarely performs, they have been featured on NPR, iTunes, WXPN, Indie Shuffle, BreakThru Radio, Magnet Magazine, LastFM, RCRD LBL and more.
Teen Men is a Wilmington, DE / Philadelphia, PA based collaboration between two musicians and two visual artists. Teen Men includes members of the Spinto Band (singer Nick Krill and guitarist Joe Hobson) and their new music takes a similar pop aesthetic and dedication to songwriting inspired by Quincy Jones’ work with Michael Jackson and mixes it with samples and electronic / ambient tones reminiscent of Vangelis. The visual artists (Photographer Catharine Maloney and Filmmaker Albert Birney) add an important element to the group, most notably a video projection synced to the live show that the band and audience members interact with.
