Summer Fiction
Summer Fiction
Bill Ricchini, a singer-songwriter from the Philadelphia, has been releasing gorgeous records to critical acclaim under his own name and more recently as Summer Fiction for over a decade. His tuneful, moving melodies meets at intersection of The Beach Boys' Pet Sounds, Elliot Smith's XO, and the best work of The Smiths. His most recent UK recorded full length Himalaya, which SPIN Magazine called "“Brian Wilson melodic levity meets Johnny Marr guitar jangle…effortlessly engaging,” was recently reissued on vinyl by Spanish boutique label Pretty Olivia and he is just coming off a solo tour of Spain. In the grand tradition of great pop tunesmiths he likes examining perplexing ways of the human heart. This is music that's as honest as it is elegant, and it's sure to delight and intrigue anyone with a taste for classic pop. His band features members of Philadelphia bands Roomtone, Audible and Future Corpses. Summer Fiction's new single "Since You've Gone with That Boy" was released earlier this month.
Museyroom
Museyroom
Museyroom's beginnings can be traced way back to 2003, when guitarist and singer, Jack Donovan, and multi-instrumentalist, Ben Cohen, began to write and record their own songs at the age of 13. Working in Cohen's basement, they developed intricately layered pop songs on a four-track tape recorder using an old Casio keyboard, tenor saxophone, and acoustic guitar. The two bonded over the influences of The Strokes, Bob Dylan, and John Coltrane, resulting in a musical eclecticism that is reflected in Cohen and Donovan's earliest songs, which combine narrative-based lyrics with complex and nuanced melodies.
