The Danger O's
The Danger O's
One of the Philadelphia area’s best kept secrets, The Danger O’s have been a consistent and prolific power pop machine for the past eight years.  They have released something every year since 2008, when they put out their debut full length on Creep Records, the polished, hooky 'Nineteen Ninety Four,' which was preceded by their 2006 Creep released EP, 'Little Machines.'

'Massively Intimidating Episodes,' their 2009 Creep Records EP, released as a double 7”, was a stripped-down garage rock set that hinted at the direction they would commit to on their second full length, 'The Danger O’s Play Their Hits.’ A sprawling, self-recorded, 18 song lo-fi genre hopping statement, ‘Play Their Hits’ showed off The Danger O’s ability to play any style - surf, punk, shoegaze, psychedelia, jangle pop, alternative rock - without sacrificing their signature sound.

After releasing the EP, ‘The Danger O’s Present A Sequence,’ the band began working with Tree Machine Records, and began to get positive attention from blogs including Philly Underbelly, Green Hearts Blog, Adobe and Teardrops, Exploding Head Syndrome and more. 
 
The Danger O’s third full length, ‘The Danger O’s Turn It Up,' is currently streaming on Bandcamp and Soundcloud, with a CD/Cassette release though Creep Records/Tree Machine Records. Ten songs featuring big guitars and bigger hooks, ‘Turn It Up’ bridges the gap between the power pop artists of the 1970s (Big Star, Cheap Trick and Elvis Costello) and the indie rock bands of the early 1990s (Pavement, Superchunk and Built to Spill).
Night Windows
Night Windows
Night Windows latest release, Home, was recorded in Hughes’ garage between tours (tours which included a stint at SXSW and a well received Daytrotter session) and produced by indie hero Fred Thomas. Two of the songs appearing on the release (Home and I Miss You & The Weekend) have been previously recorded and released by Hughes. The band has already wrestled command of these songs live, bringing them into a new light by adding energy and finesse. Thomas has his fingerprints all over them too; not only by adding vocals, playing guitars and synth, but writing his own parts and providing a sagely air to the band’s material. The result is the strongest effort yet by a band that has already produced a string of robust releases.
Terrible Friends
Terrible Friends
South Jersey rockers Terrible Friends have a knack for storytelling and a sound that engulfs listeners. The group formed in the summer of 2012, bound to write loud and soft sweet and melancholy affecting songs. Their sophomore EP 'Beach House' is now streaming on Bandcamp.
