Philadelphia’s music scene is way underappreciated. Like any city, we have our fair share of the iconic, the semi-obnoxious, and the downright intolerable. And maybe the reason why the city Love doesn’t get recognized for its startling music is our fault – we’re just not showing enough love to the right artists, even to those bands across the river. So consider the December issue – The Philly Issue – your wake-up call. Inside, we have the buzzworthy outfits that deserve your undivided attention – The Swimmers, Good Old War, Cuddle Magic, AnOmali, Screaming Females, and cover outfit Free Energy. Take the time to listen, people, and you won’t regret it.
Also in this month’s issue: Emilie Autumn, The 69 Eyes, The Phenomenal Handclap Band, Metropolis and the Top 9 of ’09, where Origivation writer, Izzy Cihak, chats up with nine of the best artists of this year to give us their opinion of the three best tracks of this year. It’s heavy.
