I Think Like Midnight
I Think Like Midnight
I Think Like Midnight is an instrumental rock band formed by lovers of the lost art of the rock instrumental. The initial spark was a reoccurring desire on the part of ITLM found Andrew Chalfen to hear a new record by the band Pell Mell. As no new Pell Mell record has been released since 1997, Chalfen formed ITLM in an attempt to make a Pell Mell record, which they did, up in Ithaca NY at the home recording studio of J. Robert Lennon. The result is the album "Warm Seclusion Structure". As ITLM preps for the album's release and playing the songs out live, recording continues of more new material, much of which will be available as bonus tracks.
Taggart
Taggart
Upon the release of their last album Philadelphia Weekly described Taggart as “harking back to underground rock’s golden age during the half-decade leading up to Nevermind. The guitars are sweet and crunchy like super sugar crisp, purveying tasty hooks coated in distortion and jagged edges with gruff, half-yelped vocals reminiscent of Eric Bachmann (Archers of Loaf)”. A Philadelphia institution for over 20 years Taggart has never taken a break from writing, performing and recording. Over the years they’ve had the opportunity to open for some of their biggest influences, including Portastatic, Tommy Stinson, and even acted as Grant Hart’s backing band on a few Husker Du songs. They self-released their latest full length album, L’maskin, in February 2018.
Mt. Vengeance
Mt. Vengeance
Mt. Vengeance - Rich, Kev, Nick. After briefly working together in 2001 to score the soundtrack for French Non-Wave director Laurent Blouineau's debut film "Nostalgia Plank", Mt. Vengeance has re-assembled as a power rock trio to perform live on select dates in 2016 on the East Coast of the U.S. and to extensively tour again in Eastern Europe's "dark districts" arts and entertainment corridor. Known for power pop sensibilities and dissonant intuitions their rare performances are, as declared by Seth Groenenberg of NY Life "simple constructs in atonality disguised as ear candy for a neo-populist sensibility". Ex- Latimer, Uptown Bones, BLUE, Ashtabula - and more.
