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.
Circadian Rhythms
Circadian Rhythms are a six-piece indie-pop band from Philadelphia, originally formed by a small core of high school friends who bonded over a shared love of the indie rock experiments of the Elephant 6 collective and the Beach Boys’ luminous psychedelic pop. Following in this tradition, Circadian Rhythms have spent the last decade-plus developing their own rich and unusual musical universe of sweetly off-kilter songs.

Following a series of impressive self-released projects that include 2015’s A Passing Thought EP and 2012’s dense and ambitious full-length, A Dream or Something Else, Circadian Rhythms return with A Peculiar Kind of Afternoon—an extended meditation on the uncertainty that comes along with age and the struggle for personal growth.

Released in June of 2017, A Peculiar Kind of Afternoon finds the band working through its strongest collection of songs to date. As bluesy, barrelhouse romps rub up against lush vocals and tastefully orchestrated Brian Wilson-esque psychedelia, the album draws listeners into an insular world where time chips at the enthusiasm of youth, giving way to the strangeness of adulthood. With their distinct style and raucous live performances, Circadian Rhythms distill the rich history of American popular song that is catchy, trippy, and ripe with emotional gravity.
Miss Cantaloupe
Featuring ex-members of Tutlie & The Underwater Sounds, Miss Cantaloupe is a dream-rock group based out of Philadelphia, Pa. Each song is unique in the theatrical soundscape of their fairy-tale land, The Cantaloupe Kingdom.
