Reverend Mantis
Reverend Mantis
Hailing from Philadelphia, Reverend Mantis is a three-piece band rooted in the blues with branches that reach out into psychedelic, punk, and garage rock. Singer-songwriter Brandon Och has spent most of his life playing drums in experimental and avant-garde projects, but with Reverend Mantis he crafts dark blues rock that favors weirdness over nostalgia. On stage, he and lead guitarist Adam Geer trade bass duties through the use of sub-octave pedals, while Adam Phaneuf bangs out a rock-solid stomp on the drums. To be expected: single coils; an interlude from a creepy film; some fuzz, tubes, and reverb; a dirty blues slide; and a howling snake oil salesman.
The Downtown Club
The Downtown Club
The Downtown Club is a Philly based 3-piece band. Their debut EP is available on Amazon and iTunes. Their sound is made up of delayed female vocals, analog synths, guitar, drums and bass.
Fine Motor
Fine Motor is the new band from Philadelphia musicians Casey Bell (Myrrias) and Dan Morse (Wigwams). The two played together in DIY post-punk trio Break It Up, with Morse on guitar and Bell on drums. As Fine Motor, the pair explore quieter regions of the dynamic spectrum, favoring vocal harmonies and roomy guitars over volume and velocity.
