Goodnight Lights- CD Release Party!
“This Philadelphia/New Jersey based band pretty much hijacked my brain and held it hostage for about an hour. Every element in Goodnight Lights comes together with such a sincere force; I felt like I was waiting for this album to come along, like some of my favorite bands were finally smashed together in one. Perhaps the feeling of anticipation was loaded in a familiar sound with a twist... I couldn't put my finger directly on it, but I knew I liked it. The influences of this band are inadvertently represented in the tracks on the album. Some of those influences include The Velvet Underground, The Pixies, The Stooges, Radiohead and The Arcade Fire. Goodnight Lights concocts a sound that channels these influences in a versatile yet original way. Innovative.” – Jennifer Koch, Origivation Magazine

Goodnight Lights is releasing it’s third full length album, “As Far As the Moon” on June 16, 2012.

The Quelle Source
Try pinning down Philadelphia’s The Quelle Source - it’s not easy. The group clearly operates in an indie rock aesthetic - they won “Best Indie Rock Act in Philadelphia” at Origivation Magazine’s 2011 Reader’s Choice Awards. But with press comparisons ranging from Deerhoof to The Decemberists to The Mountain Goats, it’s evident the group takes what it needs from their influences - nasally vocals, tense lyrical content, and tight, dynamic arrangements - and smashes them together to see what happens. That’s made easier thanks to two lead singers and songwriters bringing different ideas to the table. With songs that marry the joyful sounds of being young with lyrical content that tackles all the parts that suck about it, The Quelle Source will “put indie rock smiles on your faces” (Philadelphia City Paper), even if it is in a sinister, backward way. The group released The French Rapture EP in September 2011 and is currently recording demos and debuting songs from their forthcoming sophomore LP.

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.
