Southwork
Southwork
Southwork is a seven-piece family band made up of cousins, twin brothers, and childhood friends that grew up playing music in the city of Philadelphia. Since their debut album, “Arise” in December 2012, Southwork has consistently spread their brand of psychedelic inspired dance rock across the country. After releasing their “Seasons Passing” EP in the summer of 2013, Southwork continued to tour while planning their next project. Once back in Philadelphia, the band started working on a Tascam MS-16 one-inch tape machine for their sophomore album, “Wear Your Heart Out”, released in August of 2014.

With each release, Southwork’s sound has shifted away from big-band influences and towards heavy synthesizers carrying darker melodies. That trend continues with “Extended Play”, released in December of 2017. The band is currently recording their third album in a studio they’ve built inside of their old high-school in South Philadelphia.
The Soft Spots
The Soft Spots are a three piece band based out of Philadelphia PA. Armed with a drum machine, ukulele, multiple synths, guitar, bass, three part harmonies, and an array of effects pedals, The Soft Spots play a blend of shoegaze, and electronic post-punk, with an exotic twist.

Consisting of three life-long friends Shane, Corey Pace, and Truong Ta, The Soft Spots just released their first EP "Gently Down The Stream," and they are ready to wrap the world in a soft, warm, blanket of love and never stop dreaming. They also just released their first official music video for the sun-soaked single, "Getaway," and have a follow up EP "Life Is But A Dream," set for a springtime 2015 release.
