    Dear Loves and Lovers of Music, 
    This is just to say that my new record has been recorded, and as record-breaking snows meet record-breaking notes, we now begin the process of breaking it to you.

  4. TREMBLE TREMBLE LIVE

    Just found this gem from Apollo’s (listen to it/buy it here) release show last year at Bar Matchless. Ryan looks handsome as hell on bass, Kallie makes the whole thing happen on viola, and Alex holds down the fort on drums. And then there’s the beautiful crowd singing along. What a night!

  6. OLD DEMOS SERIES: ‘MYSTIC IN THE CITY’

    Over the years I’ve written a bunch of songs, and recorded them in a bunch of ways. Lots of them don’t make the final cut to go on albums, but I’m kind of fond of their weirdness, and if yr a superfan or a superfreak maybe you will be too x

  7. Four More Years. 

  8. ANTHEMS…

    i been doing quick home recordings for fun. here’s another.

    i don’t care if you roll yr eyes and think high school.

    mad pretty harmonies. 

  9. Love your songs and lyrics! I was wondering if you can post lyrics to whole world and what was the inspiration behind the song? Thanks!

    As ‘anonymous’ requested, here are the lyrics to ‘Whole World,’ (song can be purchased here: Whole World). Thank you for your kind words anonymous!

    WHOLE WORLD (from Apollo), 

    i fell in love with you lighthouse keeper

    you fell in love with me cause i saw deeper

    to the boy behind the joy your light showed clearer

    but you felt wrong when you me on the shore

    and i should of known right then it was cruel to ask for more

    but my whole world came to a halt

    and you were the only thing that moved

    so honey you must see that its not my fault

    that i’m havin some trouble here without you

    and you can see it however you choose

    and i can locate reasons till i’m blue

    but if you boil it down to the simplest truth, 

    all that you will have left is that i miss you. 

    now everything inside of me is racing

    my heart is quickly outrunning my mind

    and i stand idly by and watch this chase scene

    my heart reaches the end line just in time

    leaving all that there is to clean up to my mind

    but your whole world blew out the top

    and i was the only thing that held you down

    so honey i do see that its not your fault

    you gotta be without me constantly around

    you say ‘how can you know me? i don’t even know myself

    the last five years vie worked the gears for something else’

    i say ‘stop can’t you see how much that hurts to hear?’

    and you say ‘can’t you see how much that hurts to tell?’

    now i’ve never felt this far from feeling stable

    but i will maintain my calm as long i’m able

    i’ve been thrown headlong inside a wild tornado

    it’d be a lie to say i didn’t like being high up on the ride

    cuss the view from up here, man the view from up here, it’s divine

    but our whole world it got shot full of holes

    and faithless logic turned your yes’s into no’s

    it burned your poetry into the ashes of prose

    and it’s not enough to say this is the path we chose

    i did not choose this and neither did you

    but now i’m losing it and i’m quick losing me too

    and when i boil it down to the simplest truth

    all that is left is that there is no simple truth.

    Cold Fronts - Get Right Back (Maxine Nightingale cover)

    You’re going to recognize the chorus but probably not the original artist’s name to this soul-meets-disco hit from 1975, redone here by this rising Philly indie rock outfit. They’ve “been playing [it live] for a while. It was really one of the first song that the band learned to play together,” says band leader Craig Almquist. 

    Got tipped off to these guys back in July with their super catchy single “Strange Architecture”. They’re heading to the studio this month with talented Philadelphia producer Kyle ‘Slick’ Johnson to record a new EP that should be out sometime in early 2013. In the meantime, I recommend you grabbing their debut Pretty American EP that they just made free on Bndcmp.

    Cold Fronts on Yvynyl! Love this band, on hypemachine (HYPEM)and in real life!

  13. Blog Write Up from HEARTACHE WITH HARD WORK: 

    http://www.heartachewithhardwork.com/?s=tica+douglas

    Inside/Outside- Tica Douglas

    A synth line that unwinds itself slowly. It reverberates gently, and then is punctuated by a pitter-patter of drum beats. It’s got the deep cold feel of space, like a pop dream floating through the starry night. But when the bass comes in, things start to rattle and shake. And before you know it, everything has burst off into the distance. And all that’s left behind are the remnants of fireworks in your eyes.

    Tica Douglas is traditionally a singer-songwriter firmly in the acoustic troubadour mold. So it’s particularly exciting to hear something that bursts out of those confines, stretches out her wings, and takes a serious leap into the great unknown.

    Pick up this track here, or grab her Apollo EP.  One of her old songs was on my 2011 list, but this new stuff is her best work so far.

    If you’re in New York, check her out every Sunday this month at Pete’s Candy Store.  Or on Oct 23rd at Cameo Gallery.
