Go see the show at Reverb this Friday!
Red This Ever: Attack! is our 6th album and we feel we are on a creative roll with this one. We have 13 heart-pounding SynthRock tracks. Lyrically and musically this is some of the strongest stuff we have ever written. We hope it holds an honorable place in your music collection.
Maryjo Mattea (band): Washington, DC-based songstress Maryjo Mattea captivates audiences with her uniquely melodic songwriting and hauntingly beautiful voice. Mattea’s music, which has garnered comparisons to Alanis Morissette, Liz Phair, and Jenny Lewis, is the perfect hybrid of polished pop and raw rock. In addition to performing original music and more as a solo artist and with a band, she is also a member of the grunge-garage rock duo, Two Dragons and a Cheetah; electro-rock group, Color Palette; synth-pop band, Loi Loi; and post-rock ensemble, Endless Winter.
Woodfir: Woodfir’s home base of Baltimore is a perfect geographic mid-point of their biggest influences: the West Coast USA and British UK, circa 1980’s. Bits of psych, soul, and country glimmer in the seams of what is generally a straightforward punk rock trio. On guitars, Reda does the low fuzz and TK takes the high slides. On drums, Al provides the expert clatter and bash that propels them all forward. In a local scene polarized by either artsy indie-pop or ultra-heavy rock, Woodfir persists on the sidelines like a hallucinatory tracer, and a night with them will make you nostalgic for a time and place you’re not sure ever existed.

Queer duo Witch Weather discuss new album and the influence of the DMV on their sound.
Philadelphia-based queer punks Witch Weather have a message for anyone who feels hopeless and worthless: you are not alone. With an irresistible sound that draws from 80’s goth and lo-fi grunge, the indie duo wears their heart on their sleeve, giving voice to complex emotions that many would opt to suppress in the recesses of their minds.
Join Alchemical Records as they connect with Witch Weather to discuss the band’s new self-titled album, their search for a sense of belonging as members of the queer community, the important element that keeps the duo’s creative bond strong, and the influence of the DMV on their sound.
