In case you missed it: Arum Rae live at Ortlieb’s

Warranted-Queen-EP-SMALL

Arum Rae is a singer-songwriter originally from Austin, TX now living in Brooklyn. I was excited to catch the Berklee College of Music graduate at Philadelphia’s intimate bar and venue Ortlieb’s last night. No stranger to the stage, Arum Rae has previously shared the stage with Rodriguez, B.B. King, Willie Nelson, and Gary Clark Jr. just to name a few. Her new EP Warranted Queen is a sensual heartfelt diary of songs that will make you feel and move. She writes her songs from life experiences and you can hear it in her voice and feel it in your bones when she performs live.

Arum Rae filled the venue with enough soul and heartfelt blues in her soaring voice to light up the room. Mix that with her gritty, raw, blasting guitar and roaring drums and you get a sound that can swallow annoying obnoxious bar talkers and leave them with their jaws on the floor.

Her bluesy, weathered, range-less voice sounds like the extension of a soul that’s lived a lifetime. The guitar is an extension of her whole being. The two hypnotize you and you forget she’s doing both so effortlessly.

A gorgeous girl (with a ring game and shoe game that is on point) blasted blues, soul and pure rock throughout philly last night and she’s coming for your town. Check out her tour dates below.

morning jam xx: Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs ft. Anna Lunoe “Feels Like”

15 Aug

TEED

If you’ve read this blog before you know that I’m completely obsessed with everything Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs…the man is my everything and I don’t care who knows it. After touring the world djing some incredible parties (including The Dolphin in Philly), TEED is back with a new jam and record label Nice Age.

“Feels Like” is the newest single from Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and the label, and features the gorgeous vocals of Anna Lunoe. This is the perfect jam to start off your Friday and your weekend, and is certain to give you a dance workout of epic proportions as TEED is known to do. I could not be more excited for Orlando in this new venture. I can’t even comprehend how epic future releases on Nice Age will be. That man has taste when it comes to music and I am so stoked he is going to deliver us these hand-picked new jams on the silver platter that is his new label.

“Feels Like” ft. Anna Lunoe is out now! Get your copy now here.

Morning Jam xx: Southern “Where I Want To Be”

23 Jul

southern

Do I need to marry into this family to join the band? If so, I’m okay with that. Lucy and Thom Southern are the brother-sister duo that make this incredible Belfast-born, Liverpool-based bluesy, rock’n’roll powerhouse.

Southern released another electric single “Where I Want To Be” due out August 18th! The track has the brother-sister vocal harmonies you know and love with seductive, body-moving instrumentals, and lyrics to sing at the top of your lungs. Southern have stayed true to releasing singles to soundtrack your summer and “Where I Want To Be” is a great addition. To buy Southern’s self-titled EP click here. Follow Southern on Facebook, Twitter and Songkick for tour dates.

morning jam xx: Interpol “All The Rage Back Home”

22 Jul

interpol

Interpol have been all the rage in my heart for years now. I recently became fixated on listening to their albums on repeat, so they could not have picked a better time to release new music into my life. “All The Rage Back Home” picks up right where Interpol left off, by delivering us mesmerizing instrumentals, infectious lyrics, and sing-a-long chorus’ that stay in your head for days. “All The Rage Back Home” is a strong first single from what should be an epic new album from the band. Interpol’s new album El Pintor is available now for pre-order here!

Interpol have announced a North American and European tour. Sadly, Philadelphia’s show at Union Transfer has sold out so hopefully you got your tickets! If not, Interpol just announced additional dates for NYC, London, and Dublin. For more information about when Interpol is coming to your town and to get your tickets click here.

I am loving this super smooth jam from London’s Memory Maze.

“Like A Mirage” has soft, seductive vocals and bass with instrumentals that will keep your hips moving and heart breaking. Memory Maze are due to release an album later this year!

Philly Show NOT to be missed: Clap Your Hands Say Yeah at Johnny Brenda’s TONIGHT!!!

27 Jun

cyhsy_img01_hires_crop

I’m going to come right out and say it. I love Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. Their new album, Only Run, reminds us of their unique sound that only gets better with age.

Let’s face it, the guys are indie rock legends and they are playing at Johnny Brenda’s, one of Philadelphia’s most beautiful and intimate clubs, TONIGHT. How lucky are we?! Of course the show is sold out, and I am anticipating dancing and getting sweaty on this magical summer night with all of you. The show starts at 9:30PM with Stagnant Pools opening, so don’t be late. Get there, pay attention, and stand post where you want to be for your glorious reunion with one of your favorite bands.

xx Cher
