Do you enjoy post-punk electronic psychedelic shoegaze spacerock? If so please do check out this Philly-based band, Music For Headphones. We watched them perform at Kung Fu Necktie on October 24th and they were incredible. Having formed about 5 years ago, MFH has honed its’ sound and put together numerous high quality LP’s and EP’s that must be heard. Check out their bandcamp to do just that. We love their Alternate/Preface EP! Some of the best stuff around.
Made up of a bassist, keyboardist, drum machine/sampler and guitarist/lead vocals, MFH has an engaging sound that should satisfy most any taste. Jonathan Allen (guitarist/vocalist), Greg Kinter (guitarist), Phil Watson (keyboardist) and Justin Gibbon (drummer) draw on influences such as Spiritualized, My Bloody Valentine, Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Dandy Warhols, Secret Machines, The Warlocks, Spacemen 3, Julian Cope, Luna, SWANS, Jesus and Marychain, Velvet Underground, Galaxie 500, Joy Division, and Neu!. We would say their sound is an amalgam of these and more. They buck trends and follow their own magical musical path to a land of diverse sound and space.
Here is some video from their most recent KFN performance. Please note the one video contains two songs which ran into each other.
