Dogs On Acid
Dogs On Acid
Dogs On Acid is an punk/indie band formed in Philadelphia, PA in 2014 comprised of Peter Helmis, Joe Reinhart and Nick Tazza from Algernon Cadwallader and Nate Dionne from Snowing.

They released the first of their two seven inch record in August 2014 under Ranch Records and their second is scheduled to be released early in 2015 under Asian Man Records.
The Past Haunts (ex-Piebald)
Travis Shettel, singer/guitarist from the Boston rock band, Piebald, now fronts this outfit. Drums and bass supplied by Benjamin and Heather Heywood! WE ARE RAMBUNCTIOUS ROCK!!!
Lancaster PA’s SPILL are no strangers to the polarizing nature of both success and failure. A theme that is the driving force of their debut full length on No Sleep Records titled “Top Ten”. Diving into the ups and downs of life, juggling being in a band, working a shitty day job, and trying to deal with relationships throughout all of it. Recorded at The Headroom (Joyce Manor, Hop Along) with Kyle Pulley (Thin Lips) and featuring a guest appearance by Chris Diehm (1994! Thin Lips, Year of Glad). Top Ten is an instant beer and blood-soaked Rickenbacker rock’n’roll signaling. The musical equivalent of a movie scene where the protagonist wakes up in their clothes , lights a cigarette, chugs a beer, and walks outside to face the terror of everyday life with a sadistic smile and understanding of the bullshit ahead of him. SPILL makes you feel like it’s ok your life is fucked sometimes, cause hey, isn’t everyones? Pessimistic Optimism isn’t an Oxymoron, it’s a band called SPILL.
Spelling Reform
Philadelphia indie group Spelling Reform continues to evolve on its LP "No One’s Ever Changed," released in November 2016 on Black Rd Records. Featured in Consequence of Sound, American Songwriter and more, the record – with touches of indie rock, indie pop, folk and power pop — is anchored by singer/songwriter Dan Wisniewski’s feverous lyrics and urgent vocals, which have drawn comparisons to The Mountain Goats, Dan Bejar and Woody Allen (for real). Recorded in a single, donut-fueled weekend with producer and Hop Along guitarist Joe Reinhart at The Headroom in Philadelphia, "No One's Ever Changed" makes for a fascinating listen, with well-formed songs, energetic delivery and varied instrumentation. For fans of The Weakerthans and Pixies. The group is currently road testing new material for an LP release in 2018.
