Boyd Shropshire has been playing in Philly bands for years. You may remember him from mid-'00s indie rockers Human Television and he's also spent time with Kurt Vile & the Violators. Shropshire will release his second solo album, Victory Weather, next week (7/29) via Wonderland Archives. As you might expect from a former Vile associate, it's hazy, lazy and quite lovely. You can listen to the whole thing right now -- we're premiering a stream of the whole album in this post.
There will be a NYC release party on August 5 at Union Pool. Jess Williamson and Matt Bauer are also on the bill with Boyd. No advance tickets, $8 at the door.

"Neo-folk and it's many reinterpretations predominated the line-up, which included Headless Horseman, Bentley Addison Wood, Strand of Oaks, Matt Bauer, The Loom and more (we left before Death in it's many forms arrived). This is also just to say that the urban-woodsman look--plaid with hair on your head and/or on your chinny-chin chin--is still in, plus instruments that you probably haven't seen played since that brief stint in your middle school band (and a few odd balls): pots and pans, banjo, soprano/baritone ukulele, upright bass, French horn and trumpet. Watching Timothy Showalter of Strand of Oaks shimmy with his guitar, Matt Bauer plucking his banjo singing "Daddy was a spider and Momma was a fly," and The Loom in all their polyphonic glory, I was keenly reminded of how awesome house parties of the non-college-Milwaukee's-Beast breed really can be." [Dirty Art Smock]Though he didn't stay until the end (much like the above reviewer), Chris La Putt stopped by our loft party that took place on Friday, October 22nd. His pictures are in this post. He left after The Loom which means he missed Alcoholic Faith Mission, Dan Mangan, and O'Death.
The Loom left on a tour not long after the party. They're in Philly tonight (11/12) and the tour ends this Saturday night, 11/13, at Bowery Ballroom. They and Anais Mitchell are both opening for Horse Feathers. Tickets are still on sale, and I have a couple pairs you can win. Details at the end of the loft pictures, below...
