Philadelphia-based Brown Recluse played an inspiring and well-crafted psychedelic baroque pop set as part of rockaphilly‘s October 28th event at JB’s. With select songs from multiple EP and LP efforts, it was truly a greatest hits [up until this point] type of show. Brown Recluse chose to play many songs that captured the feel of Halloween and made use of JB’s stage screens to project holiday relevant silent film graphics behind them. It was awesome.
For those of you not familiar with Brown Recluse, they are predominantly a four-piece band consisting of Tim, Mark, Dan, Shawn and are on the Slumberland record label. Continuously evolving over the last 5 years, the band’s most recent effort, “Evening Tapestry” consists of “juxtaposing eerie, minor-key psychedelia with their melancholic take on sunshine pop.” Having toured with the likes of The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, Tyvek, Dirty Projectors, & Matt and Kim, Brown Recluse is definitely behind the scenes working at the forefront of today’s best Indie acts.
We encourage you to get out and support them at their upcoming shows at Milkboy and The Barbary and present to you some video from that fine October eve when Brown Recluse did the ordinary – play a solid and flawless show:
