As heard on 88.5 WXPN and Radio 104.5, songwriter Deadfellow (Hayden Sammak) joins us with his band.

Sammak gained national attention with his debut “Love Songs for the Contemporary Listener” and its follow up “Mescalifornia: A California Dream.”

Sammak will be drawing from his back catalogue as well as new selections from his upcoming full length “Millennials In Love (And Other Pre-Apocalyptic Stabdards),” out later this year.
Stereo League
Stereo League
Stereo League is a Philadelphia based musical collective whose expansive sound is a product of the vast circle of artists who have touched the project. Originally founded in 2016 as a recording project by songwriter and vocalist Alex Savoth, Stereo League has organically evolved into a dynamic live act. In addition to Savoth, their current lineup features bassist Mitch Beer, guitarist Dan King, drummer Gusten Rudolph and keyboardist John Hildenbrand. Their debut record A Light on Each Side, which was co-produced by Savoth and Engineer Eric Bogacz, features a total of twelve Philadelphia area musicians. Like an elusive jigsaw puzzle, Stereo League has arranged the pieces to create a more cohesive whole.


At its core, A Light on Each Side is both lyrically and musically a balancing act. Due in part to the project’s collaborative spirit, it explores a wide variety of styles in what truly feels like a conversation between dear friends. From the summer breeze and driving cadence of Mother Tongue, to the lush soundscape and serenity of Swim, Stereo League’s sound calls back to artists like Jeff Buckley, Radiohead, and The Verve.


The album’s first single “Don’t Lay Your Head Down” was posted on multiple Best of 2017 lists and is a strong example of the energy that can be expected at one of their shows. Whether they’re in the studio, or on stage, Stereo League continues to extend their musical reach with just a little help from their friends. There is without a doubt magic in collaboration, and Stereo League is a prime example of how multiple minds can harmonize to bring a shared vision to life.
Sun Hat
Sun Hat
Philly dream-grungers, Sun Hat, started as a bedroom recording project by Boston and New York scene vets Daniel Harris Levine (AKHBAR, 3dCosby), Anthony Aquilino (Control Top, CLOAKZ, MiniBoone, GunFight!, Quiet Loudly), and Abram Taber (A bit Much, School for Robots, Sinbusters). Levine, Aquilino and Taber would swap demos and gather weekly at Levine’s house to play each other’s songs along to a drum machine. Aquilino’s upstairs neighbor, Evan Dormont (Sic Bacchus) joined on drums in January 2014, and played on most of their debut full length album, Pet Shapes, released on cassette in November of 2016. Since then, Sun Hat has played basements and stages around Philly including Johnny Brenda’s, Boot and Saddle, and the First Unitarian Church. They have shared bills with Mirah, Laser Background, Mock Suns, The Morelings, Woven In, Callowhill, and more. Sun Hat is currently working on their second LP with newfound member, Greg Foran (Lightninging, Falsa, Static Mountain) handling drum duties, and will continue East Coast shows in support of Pet Shapes in the coming months.
