Philadelphia’s burgeoning punk community is one of the most exciting scenes out there right now, and this awesome new 4-way split from some Philly up-and-comers only serves as further evidence of that fact. We’ve got Mumblr, who put out their really great debut album last fall. Clique and Loose Tooth both feature members of the late Ted Nguyent. And, perhaps most exciting for me, is a new song from Ghost Gum, a band that I’ve been keeping an eye on since they put out a really amazing demo collection early last year. All of these tracks showcase some of the best of what Philly has to offer — all fuzzy guitars, effortlessly catchy hooks, and scrappy upstart attitude. Check the whole thing out below.
The new split will be released 2/20 in conjunction with a release show at First Unitarian Church. Info for the show and tape release can be found here.
