Purling Hiss is the longtime project of Mike Polizze (Birds of Maya, Watery Love), currently joined in power rock trio formation by drummer Ben Leaphart and bassist Pat Hickey. From their first self-titled LP, released in 2009 on Permanent Records, the group has explored the outer fringes of rock cutting a piste across albums and live sets that place in equal measure the experimental and the accessible. Their newest album Drag on Girard (Drag City, 2023) encapsulates this approach: while the compositions are tighter and perhaps more "song-based" than some earlier approaches, the group left ample room for ideas to emerge: "It was an off-the-cuff process where the songs were mostly written but I told everybody don’t worry about it. Let’s have something loose." 


Lehigh Valley legend Brother JT has recently self-released his 29th(?) album "Shaky Jet Loner", yet another inventive collection of delectable psychedelia and psychedelic delectations. The project began 30+ years ago with two releases on the revered Twisted Village label: 1991's Descent, a snarling, free jazz-skronk inversion of John Coltrane's Ascensions and 1992's Meshes of the Afternoon, which documents the aftereffects of Maya Deren's avant-garde visions on the inner ear. Along the way, countless tunes dropped like manna from the heavens across 7"s, LPs and CD-Rs, including a number for his own imprint Bedlam Records. For this occasion, the Brother JT combo will be joined by bassist Bill Melcher, their first performance together in nearly 20 years! 


Allentown's Catatonic Suns bury their 90s indie sensibilities underneath blankets of psychedelia. Initially starting as a lo-fi recording project, the group soon blossomed into a full band performing live across the USA and recording their first two albums with producer Matt Molchany at Bethlehem's Shards Studios. Their most recent full-length, Saudade, shows a love for Spacemen 3, My Bloody Valentine, Stone Temple Pilots and all sorts of pre-millennial rock'n'roll mess across ten cuts.
