Reblog from IYMI:
Glocca Morra / The Greek Favourites - Songs in the Key of Ayyyyyy
This split is a refreshing chapter in the ever expanding book of noodle. Both GM and TGF apply the visceral, passionate, and strung out aggression that drew me to punk-rock from the very beginning while maintaining an air of maturity (without arrogance) that is almost lost in both punk and indie music. Glocca Morra, moving to Philadelphia on a whim from Miami, FL, have busted their asses to prove themselves as a permanent fixture. The Greek Favourites formed in the Pocono's (PA), growing up with neighbors like The Holy Mess (and slightly further neighbors The Menzingers, Captain We're Sinking, etc). A real gem of eastern Pa. Can't wait to see what's in store for these dudes. - Tony Godino of Dead Industry Booking
I played with both these bands when I came through Louisville, KY on The State Lottery tour. Amidst a 7 band show, both bands definitely stuck with me. Check out this awesome split from two up and coming Philly bands. Also look for a physical release in the near future.

Trust me, you want this. I'm a little late, but I got caught up in some road trips and forgot to post this.
The Sarcastic Dharma Society from Portland, Oregon is the sometimes solo-project of Mat Vuksinich in which Katherine Vuksinich adds some violin on The Light in this album. He's quickly become a favorite on the cllct collective and has informed me of his new album off Less Than Three Records. Sannyasa Songs is a quieter follow up to his previously posted album Other People's Songs(Volume 1) which took an acoustic approach to some of my favorite artists.

Summer Tour 2010
Ex christopherwalken and The Manhattan Project from Philadelphia/Lehigh Valley. They just played their first show last Thursday at Burners and are quickly picking up internet hype despite just releasing their first demo. They provide angry ex-boyfriend music including lyrics like, "and on every shooting star, I wish your life a living hell" in ...And The High Horse You Rode In On combined with Clerks samples in A Series Of Down Endings. Listen to them if you enjoyed christopherwalken's demo, are a fan of Snowing, Hightide Hotel, or are looking for something new to the scene. Three out of five of their songs are re-recorded/renamed christopherwalken songs, but they sound so much more rad through Science Fair. Definitely check them out.
