Three Man Cannon
Three Man Cannon
Playing together as a band since their teenage years, Three Man Cannon have come a long way since the initial release of their debut LP The Sound. The Fury. in 2010, both sonically and physically, making the trek from Scranton to Philadelphia. The band released a split with fellow Scranton natives Lee Corey Oswald in 2013, the precursor to their final finished LP Pretty Many People. Mixing their old proclivity toward catchy punk-influenced indie rock with a new darker, heavier sound, Pretty Many People creates a new vibe for Three Man Cannon, bringing the K Records era of indie rock into the Philadelphia punk scene.

Through the slow groove and occasional drone, all the band members lend vocals over the course of the record, keeping the melody light and moving, stringing together lines of love and loss and laziness. With words instantly both poetic and relatable, the band's lyrical style perfectly complements the delicate guitar work and constant, echoing groove created by the rhythm section. Taking an already unique sound and giving it some weight, Three Man Cannon have hit their mark with Pretty Many People. It's a record for basement punks and 90s snobs who want to dance while contemplating their own finite existence. A record both unifying and thought provoking, Pretty Many People borrows the best parts of indie and punk rock, making an immediate impression with their second full length record and delivering a unique sound you never knew you needed to hear.
Katie Ellen
katie ellen is the latest project from Anika Pyle and Dan Frelly (ex-Chumped). Their debut LP - Cowgirl Blues - is ten songs of twangy, pop forward indie punk with subtle country underpinnings, showcasing Pyle’s knack for punchy, melodic songwriting familiar to fans of her previous work while exploring more dynamic and intimate arrangements that nod to contemporaries like Waxahatchee, Alvvays, All Dogs and Pinegrove. Pyle notes 60s girl groups, Patsy Cline and Jenny Lewis as writing influences which bloom amidst she and Frelly’s longstanding dynamic, lead guitarist Anthony Tinnirella’s clean and classic guitar leads, groovy bass lines and Beach Boys-esque harmonies. Cowgirl Blues is out now on Lauren Records.
The Afterglows
Philadelphia power-pop songwriters Sam Cook-Parrott and Michael Cantor each helm their own bands: Cook-Parrott is the force behind Radiator Hospital, and Cantor's main project is The Goodbye Party. Both write songs that range from sparse and intimate to lush and joyful, driven by DIY aesthetics and thoughtful lyrics. Now, they're collaborating under the name The Afterglows, with a self-titled album due out later this summer.
