Field Mouse
Field Mouse
Field Mouse is a band that plays rock music. Two of them live in Philadelphia, three of them live in New York. Virgo, Sagittarius, Taurus, Gemini and Libra. That’s about it.
Control Top
Control Top
Appearing in various forms in the Philly DIY music scene since 2015, the post-punk trio Control Top is a tribute to persistence and evolving through doing. Amid periods of dormancy, stylistic forays and lineup changes, singer/bassist and founding member Ali Carter was determined to keep the project going after the release of the band's demo tape. In 2017, she was joined by drummer Alex Licktenhour (HIRS, Get Better Records) and guitarist Al Creedon (Bleeding Rainbow). Alex was searching for a new project to get involved in, while Al was rediscovering electric guitar after years of playing noise and electronic music. Now recording their debut full-length, the band has found a clear identity, blending diverse tastes to create music for a time beyond despair and naïveté.

That’s the thing with post-punk. There’s so much a band can do under its umbrella. The Slits and Devo, Pylon and Glenn Branca - these artists are all wildly different yet found a home in a genre that resists definition. Control Top gets inspiration from these wide-ranging pioneers yet remains true to the post-punk ethos of anti-imitation and the drive to create a new remedy to modern ills. The urge to resist conformity is stronger than ever, and the need for urgent, relevant music is just as strong.
Onesie
Onesie
Onesie plays the kind of smart, hooky guitar pop that has occasionally been filed under the endangered species list in the County of Kings. With one foot firmly planted in the Brit Pop songwriting traditions of the 80's and 90s, and another in the manic yowl of American punk and hardcore, the band deals in the currency of anthems written on the voyage towards modern adulthood, with eyes staring straight into the abyss of an uncertain future.

The project started as a cluster of home recorded guitar pop ditties by prime songwriter Ben Haberland (The Isles, Sport of Kings). As a part time collaborator in several side projects, Ben had the luxury of choosing some great rock warriors to bring into the fold; Matt Beckeymer (Sport of Kings) on keys and guitar, Zach Fanelli (Man Without Plan) on bass, and Finish transplant Tommi Fosstrom on drums (Echo Is Your Love).

The band is currently writing their debut album with hopes for a release in Fall 2013. Onesie demos can be heard right here, right now, right here:
