Philly’s Arches have released a new four song EP called Enough that you can download digitally and purchase for a “name your price” dealio. They are also selling the EP as a “high quality hand dubbed cassette” that you can purchase here. Arches have been around since the 2010’s and slowly but surely have been releasing icy shoegazy jams that get better with each new release. Their latest EP should take these guys to another level. Imagine if in the early days of My Morning Jacket, with all their reverbed haze, they were a slow burning bunch of gazers in love with their Ride (and early Meat Puppets) singles. That’s what Arches sound like. Primary members of the band include Julien Rossow Greenberg and Tom Herman Jr. They released their debut album Wide Awake last February. Their first tape/EP, out on The Curatorial Club was released in July 2010. In addition to this new EP, the gents have a split single that you can pre-order here.
They did a Daytrotter session last month that you can listen to here. Last July, they entered the WXPN World Cafe studio to record a session for XPN’s local music blog The Key, that you can listen to here. Below, listen/download their new EP, and check out the video for “Late Last Night.” Get your bliss on.
