LOUDS - Ways

Got this end of summer letter from a fellow Philadelphian:

hi mark,

one time my brother charlie and i sailed to an uninhabited island off the coast of maine with some friends. that island is called louds island and it sits in the penobscot bay. we sailed there in tiny dinghy’s outfitted with tiny sails on a pretty regular basis, but on this day a storm rolled in. we had to get before the thunder and lightning started rattling our masts. we rigged up and started racing back. being novice sailers and little kids we got ahead of ourselves and flipped our two vessels.

we spent hours floating in the bay, amidst pouring rain and a violent summer storm. our ships were capsized and filled with water. we had no chance of righting them. we had to wait for help. we had to wait for someone to come by. eventually they did and towed us back to the harbor. we survived and now make dance music in philadelphia. we’d love for you to check it out our first single “ways”. i hope you liked our story. 

sincerely,
petie

premiere: The Airplanes - Away Too Long

I got an email lately from my buddy Andrew Donovan from Fayetteville, Arkansas telling me about this great solo artist he discovered randomly online, but Joshua Vest's music 

"Josh told me he’s been recording this stuff at home by himself and doesn’t have a live band yet. I replied and told him that if he needs a guitar player to hit me up. About a month later we had our first practice. The other members are Joel Paul, from the band Swimming, on bass and Rob Storms on drums. It’s a little poppier than [my project] Voyageurs.”

Get this one hot off the press on the Sndcld, and look for more singles and a bit of touring this summer. I can see these boys going far!
