Purling Hiss - (Set time: 11:15 PM)
Purling Hiss
Purling Hiss’ Mike Polizze has put in much time in the fried Philly blooze overdrive of the group Birds of Maya, but in his own vehicle he’s expanded his grotty guitar wailing into the further cosmos, still shredding speakers aplenty. With releases out on Drag City, Richie, Woodsist Records, and a previous LP on Permanent, Purling Hiss became a full-fledged touring unit in 2010, revealing themselves to not only be purveyors of Rallizes Denudes/Vermonster-style guitar jams, but to have a serious 90’s grunge/pop ethic not too far removed from bits of Bleach-era Nirvana. Lots of ooh-oohs to coincide with the growls, severe hooks to get lodged in your cranium.
Spacin' - (Set time: 10:15 PM)
SPACIN’, the newly formed Philadelphia act that’s bringing together kick-flippers, arm-wrestlers, and hackey-sackers in head-nodding, beer swilling unity. Inhales the same fumes that fuel the Velvets workout at the gymnasium, the Stooges sleazy-fuzz with Asheton on guitar, and the groovy zen of Nigeria ’70. Translation: blasted anthems of basement motorik fuzz-rock and mixed with circular ambient explorations that’ll send ya’ searching for Visine and peanut butter cups.
Axis: Sova - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Axis: Sova
The muggy haze of the AXIS:SOVA sound is pollinated by nomadic guitar tones, accompanied by a Roland TR-66 Rhythm Arranger. Described as "beautifully junky, skewed surf-rock as projected through a rust belt prism, complete with hummable hooks and scorching guitar pyrotechnics" (The Decibel Tolls), "intangible sounds and textures rippling throughout cosmic lullabies" (Time Out Chicago), and "eerie and beautiful, dark and buyant" (Adhoc), AXIS:SOVA is the nom de plume of guitarist Brett Sova. Weight Of A Color is the recently released debut LP from this solo jammer, just out on Kill Shaman Records, but this show also celebrates the release of "Past The Edge," a brand new 7" on Richie Records // TestosterTunes.
