Summer Fiction
Summer Fiction
Bill Ricchini, a singer-songwriter from the Philadelphia, has been releasing gorgeous records to critical acclaim under his own name and more recently as Summer Fiction for over a decade. His tuneful, moving melodies meets at intersection of The Beach Boys' Pet Sounds, Elliot Smith's XO, and the best work of The Smiths. His most recent UK recorded full length Himalaya, which SPIN Magazine called "“Brian Wilson melodic levity meets Johnny Marr guitar jangle…effortlessly engaging,” was recently reissued on vinyl by Spanish boutique label Pretty Olivia and he is just coming off a solo tour of Spain. In the grand tradition of great pop tunesmiths he likes examining perplexing ways of the human heart. This is music that's as honest as it is elegant, and it's sure to delight and intrigue anyone with a taste for classic pop. His band features members of Philadelphia bands Roomtone, Audible and Future Corpses. Summer Fiction's new single "Since You've Gone with That Boy" was released earlier this month.
Paul And Beril
Paul And Beril
Back in the day if you wanted to see a good band, you most likely would have found yourself at The Khyber or even the North Star Bar looking to get your fix on whatever local or national rock 'n' roll endeavors were cultivating the music scene. It was a time when rock revivalists like The Strokes and The White Stripes were highly active. Out of Philadelphia came Paul Cobb's band, The Cobbs, who lived in London for some time while signed to Polydor UK, touring with bands such as BRMC and Kasabian. Meanwhile back in Philly, Beril began fronting the band East Hundred, who appeared on the scene with their catchy indie-synth-rock sounds and heartfelt vocal melodies. The two became acquainted at The Fire after an East Hundred show. Fast forward to 2015, Paul and Beril have combined their solo efforts in the form of a male/female duo that showcases their abilities as songwriters and experienced musicians.
