Philly is taking over Brooklyn tonight, and no it’s not just because Dylana and I are here wreaking havoc. Philly band Lantern are opening up for the dreamiest of dreams Dirty Beaches and Frankie Rose tonight at Glasslands so make sure you get there early (aka 8:30). Listen to Lantern’s music here.
Dirty Beaches is the handsome Alex Zhang Hungtai, and he’s created a glorious record “Badlands” that is perfect for your vinyl collection. The mixture of his voice (which is reminiscent of the 1950s..swoon) and his progressive lo-fi instrumentals makes his music so distinct and refreshing. Check out one of my favorites “Speedway”:
and “True Blue”
