WXPN 88.5 Welcomes…
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 is a Philadelphia-based recording project and musical collective started by songwriter Alexander Savoth. Stereo League’s sound is rooted firmly in the traditions of early 90’s dream pop and neo-psychedelia. Savoth’s vocals carry the melody driven songs of Stereo League with clarity and subtle power. Their first single Don’t Lay Your Head Down was listed as a top song by a Philly artist in 2017 according to WXPN’s Mike Vasilikos. The group’s first video for Summer Eyes has garnered considerable attention for its atmospheric rendering of the Beatlesque harmonies driving the song.
While most of the songs for the project have been written by Savoth, the essence of the project is steeped in collaboration and includes contributions from nearly a dozen Philadelphia musicians. Primary contributors include producer Eric Bogacz, guitarist Dan King and bassist Mitch Beer. They are currently finishing up production on a full-length album set to be released in 2018.
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.
