What I Heard This/Last Week: Moondoggies, The So So Glos, Purling Hiss and Yuck...

Some songs to hear, some videos to check out.





Moondoggies: “Empress of the North”

Pleasant enough folk jam with a hand-drawn cartoon for narration sake. The song is sort of Bon Iver-ish so I expect fans of For Emma, Forever Ago to salivate over Moondoggies' Tidelands, which is releasing October 12th via Hardly Art.



The So So Glos: “Lindy Hop”



Mildly wild and catchy, "Lindy Hop" by The So So Glos is bubbly and bouncy enough to make your feet tap. The band is releasing an EP called Low Back Chain Shift through Green Owl and will also be embarking on a "Five Boroughs" tour through NYC.

Purling Hiss: “Don't Even Try It”



And, though I do love a good New York story, I love it more when Philadelphia artists get SOME of the spotlight. Mike Polizze's Purling Hiss will be releasing Public Service Announcement through Woodsist Records on October 26th. The track "Don't Even Try It" is strangely snipped to a segment's length, but check it out anyway: sort of a crudely recorded folk track that evokes Daniel Johnston and John Dwyer's OCS work.
