The Bailey Hounds - Release Party
The Bailey Hounds emerged from the Philadelphia music scene in 2011 with their debut album "Along the Gallows"—a melancholy prowl through a series of Americana compositions, rife with imagery akin to the macabre, the diabolical, and the morose. Teetering on the border of alt-country and indie-rock, The Bailey Hounds prefer to look to the aesthetics of horror films and murder ballads for inspiration, drawing on the often sublime characteristics of the former and lyrical intrigue of the latter.
As of May 2013, The Bailey Hounds will be celebrating their second official release entitled "All the Blood in the World". The new six-song album offers a much grittier, analog approach, more indicative of the band's live performances. Though not so dissimilar from the dusty atmosphere accomplished on their debut, the new collection of songs proves to ebb and flow between upbeat '70s-style folk rock and dark, brooding ballads.
Tin Horses is an American Rock n Roll band from Philadelphia, PA. Their sound has taken a long road down a classic rock landscape, crossing paths from Crazy Horse riffs to Bob Dylan’s country records. The band features former members of Purling Hiss and Creepoid.
Ruby The Hatchet
Philadelphia psych rock quintet RUBY THE HATCHET will release its new album, Planetary Space Child, on August 25 via Tee Pee Records. Recorded in an 1800's era estate deep in the Pennsylvania woods with engineers Joe Boldizar (Retro City Studios), Zach Goldstein (Kawari Sound), and the band's own Sean Hur, the record is the product of several weeks of self-imposed isolation. Planetary Space Child showcases seven richly layered songs that unite heavy, doomy psychedelia with acid rock, proto-prog and melodic, hypnotic songcraft.
Taking advantage of the century-plus-old manor’s natural acoustics, inherent eeriness and custom-built control room, Planetary Space Child sees RUBY THE HATCHET elevate its sound to hallucinogenic new heights. Boasting a bouncy creepiness, weighty sonic palette and dark, lush layers of experimentation, the album's bulk forges a hypnotic, head-nodding nirvana while electric vocalist Jillian Taylor spins haunting tales of dreams and death; her voice layered in hazy smoke that infuses the sound of the band with an otherworldly element.
Planetary Space Child is the follow-up to RUBY THE HATCHET’s critically lauded sophomore LP, Valley of the Snake (Tee Pee Records, 2015), hailed by Verbicide as “a commanding display of hard rock.” Of their last LP, The Obelisk mused “If ‘right now’ has a sound somewhere within heavy or heavy psychedelic rock, it probably isn’t far off from what Philadelphia’s RUBY THE HATCHET conjure.” With Planetary Space Child, RUBY THE HATCHET has defined itself as more than current, toeing the line between past and present while pushing towards the outer reaches of its unique psych rock universe. Moving forward without compromise, it’s clear that RUBY THE HATCHET aren’t just staying present or looking ahead; they’re simply breaking away.
