Sandwiched between citywides and cheesesteaks, you’ll find the stomping grounds of TIOGA, a quartet that sounds like they grew up on New Order and Springsteen, but listened to a lot of The Killers and Bleachers as impressionable college kids. The group marries their meaningful lyricism and endearing style of alternative indie with a hearty bass and danceable synth-pop sound. Their homebase now extends beyond the confines of Philadelphia, and as far as the Big Apple. TIOGA sounds like if Jack Antonoff and Brandon Flowers went to a karaoke bar and sang Talking Heads songs until they got kicked out and then mumbled David Bowie songs to themselves on the walk home.
The Dawn Drapes are Daniel Rice and Michael Sanzo. They have been playing music together for almost a decade now and these new releases are a testament to that longevity. There are clear musical influences, however, the band has established their own aura song to song that really doesn't sound like anyone but themselves. Hailing from Virginia, the band relocated to Philadelphia 5 years ago and have brought something to the city that truly sounds original in a city of so much musical flexibility. The band has been backed up by a stellar cast of Philadelphia based musicians in the past, but most currently and consistently it is Keaton Thandi (drums/percussion) and Noah Skaroff (bass/vocals).
New singles recorded at Headroom Studios. Recorded/engineered by Shane Woods. Produced by Shane Woods/The Dawn Drapes.
Dominy is a five piece rock band hailing from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The band formed in 2017 with brothers John (guitar) and Alex Dominy (keys, bass) along with Zak Iannetelli (drums) and Michael Youngking (guitar, bass). The band recorded ‘Wet Leather’ during the summer of 2017, capturing the swagger of 70’s era Rolling Stones and Americana Roots Rock. Dominy quickly gained a reputation for raucous performances infused with irreverent humor. Over the course of 2018 and 2019, Dominy toured extensively, opening up for larger acts like Glam Country star Orville Peck and released two more records, the ‘Dry Leather EP’ and ‘Drugstore Cowboy’. Singer and percussionist Turquoise Cobb joined the band in late 2019, and helped drive the band towards a more refined and eclectic sound. Though unable to tour due to the 2020 Corona Pandemic, the band stuck together and continued to evolve artistically in the studio. Dominy is currently putting the finishing touches on their 4th and most ambitious studio album tentatively titled ‘Titans of True Love’. The new record is slated for release in the winter of 2021-2022.
