Modern Inventors
Modern Inventors
Modern Inventors have devised their own unique musical niche in a staggeringly short amount of time, but Matt Kass and Josh Benus are not in the business of cheap thrills. The Philadelphia-based outfit, craft songs as if they were pieces of abstract art that patiently blossom into view; carefully rendered arrangements, heartbreaking harmonies and dense turns of phrases slowly creep up into the foreground upon repeated listens.
The Doublewides
The Doublewides
The Doublewides, described as "like KISS without makeup, but in disguise" made several 2013 Top 10 lists for their "feel good hit of the summer", "Jetpack". To celebrate the holiday season, WXPN's Helen Leicht has selected the band's "Xmas On the River" for her 12 Days of Christmas program.
Levee Drivers
Levee Drivers
Levee Drivers' music embodies the sounds of old country souls being reborn into tomorrow's rock. Their music is a modern take on the story-telling of Johnny Cash, driven by early country and blues roots with a startling vocal rendition likened to a cross of Bruce Springsteen and Ryan Adams. Levee Drivers embrace an eclectic mix of sound that engages listeners of all ages and across many genres. They were named "Best of Philly Rising" 2007 by World Cafe Live. Levee Drivers also became the winners of the 2009 Beta Hi-Fi Festival hosted by World Cafe Live, a multi-night music competition with voting by the audience and a panel of judges. In 2010, Levee Drivers won the Deli Magazine "Best Philly Emerging Artist Poll" and came in 9th in the overall contest and were up again for the 2011 "Best Philly Emerging Artist". And recently in 2013, took home the Tri-State Indie Music Award for "Best Indie/Folk Americana Band" in the Tri-State Area.
