Tim Carr “Now, Now” / Out of Town Films

Los Angeles based singer-songwriter, Tim Carr, recently went out on tour supporting his dear friend Dia. On their stop in Philly before playing the Tin Angel we took them to an abandoned pier in Fishtown where they each played us two songs. The carefree kids jumping into the Delaware river (something we highly discourage) provided a nice contrast to Tim Carr’s sulky love song, “Now, Now”.

This was so good.

The War On Drugs played a “secret” tour warm up show under the name “Dead Greg” on Friday night for just about 200 people at Johnny Brenda’s in Philadelphia. It was awesome. They also got a little help from their friend, Kurt Vile, who played back-up guitar on several songs.

It was a pretty perfect Friday night that made me appreciate the city I live in and the musicians who live here.  - Philadelphia, PA - 09/12/2014

Arms “Comfort” - Philadelphia, Pa

ARMS, the moniker of a band led by Todd Goldstein, came down to Philadelphia from New York City for a gig at local venue Kung Fu Necktie and stopped over at our warehouse along the way. 

We previously released Goldstein’s acoustic cover of a Rufus Wainwright song. Here’s the first tune we recorded that day with his band, a plugged in version of a song called “Comfort”. 

The Homophones “Jackie Sez” / Out of Town Films

This session was filmed when Out of Town Films was just getting started about two years ago.  Well, before we had a fancy audio engineers and fancy cameras and all that good stuff. We saw it in the unreleased unarchives so we decided why not just put it out?

We met up with Jason from The Homophones at Kung Fu Necktie in Philadelphia and took a walk around the neighborhood. The first session we released was filmed in the bathroom of Johnny Brenda’s and then we went outside to film this take of “Jackie Sez”.  

Strand of Oaks “Goshen 97” / Out Of Town Films

Here’s part three of our series with Strand of Oaks featuring “Goshen 97”, the opening track of his recent record, “Heal”. It’s a guitar driven song that introduces the world to Timothy Showalter’s new music for the first time. He’s known for his folk tunes, but on this new record he takes a new turn to a raw and distortion heavy rock band.
