Philly's music is 'Making a Rising'

Just finished this weeks podcast of 'All Songs Considered' and two bands from Philly were highlighted. Just a short 10 min trip away from the chinatown bus!

Make a Rising
Album: Infinite Ellipse and Head With Open Fontanel
Song: Sneffels Yokul
Listen[5 min 4 sec]

Man Man
Album: Rabbit Habits
Song: Ballad of Butter Beans
Listen[5 min 7 sec]

Giant Drag- 'Kevin is Gay'

Catchy little number from a new fav. Reminiscent of Liz Phair and Juliana Hatfield. Really like the 'meowing' and 'kid critics' ending.
