Ingenue assaults your headphones as a long rush of fuzz and distortion but gradually transforms into a slick indie rock offering. The song is a meandering track that demands attention and delivers a creative vibe much different than anything else on the markets these days. At times, I felt like I had my ass parked on a huge bass speaker in the corner of the dance floor at The Revival in Philadelphia listening to a killer new wave dance party.
Song of the Day: Freedom Fly – Awake
Upon first hearing this new song from Freedom Fry, I was immediately reminded of Of Monsters and Men. The upbeat and clever combination of whistles, guitars, and male/female vocal play had me singing the chorus at various times during the day.

On Tuesday, I had the pleasure of seeing two exciting bands at Will’s Pub. Crowd pleasers to the sold out show were Teen Suicide and Elvis Depressedly. I was not overly familiar with the music of either band previously, so my ears were in for a new treat.
“Thunder In The City” is a cheery, poppy new track that I cannot unstick from that tiny little space between my ears. It’s a distinctive synth-driven single that’s just as catchy as hell, and if this track finds it’s way onto radio, it’s destined to explode on the Alternative rock scene.
Philadelphia’s MANWOMANCHILD release their stylistic new album Awkward Island today, and it’s a creative new offering definitely worth a listen for fans of Indie Rock.
