“FUCK. It’s an all-caps exclamation, a sharp proclamation, and a rallying cry. That’s also the name of the debut record from Philly/South Jersey quartet UgLi. Across eight tracks that hearken back to gloom-doom 90s alt-rock and leap towards power-pop majesty, FUCK is more than deserving of its title. The band promises a welcome release of tension that needs no introduction, just your attention. Assembled over an uncertain 2020, the record finds Dave Downham (Pet Symmetry, mewithoutYou) and the band honing in on a sound that relishes in being rough around the edges—anything else would betray UgLi’s internal monologue. 2021’s UgLi—guitarist/vocalist Dylyn Durante (she/her), bassist Lucas Gisonti (he/him), guitarist Andrew Iannarelli (he/him), and drummer Teddy Paullin (he/him)—live in the tender space between dreams and nightmares. Durante likens her emotional squalor to a “House Pet” as the record begins, lets her brain splay open over a flame through “Bad Egg,” and finds ways to navigate love when Cupid’s arrows are pointed elsewhere twice in the runtime…” – James Cassar

pillow princess
Not quite rock, more of a pebble. pillow princess is the newest offering from Philly music-scene stalwart, and Secret Nudist Friends front-person, Mattie Klauser. They are joined by Sam Nobles, Nikki Moscony, and Alex Clayton to create a unique blend of dreamy psych rock and soulful r&b. The textures are lush and immersive, wrapping you in a musical embrace, and inviting you to lie back and enjoy.
