Philadelphia-based songwriter and musician Greg Mendez's new self-titled release, his third proper album, came out on Friday (5/5) via Forged Artifacts / Devil Town Tapes. With lyrics exploring addiction over minimal folk, Elliott Smith is a natural comparison, and fans of Alex G will also likely find a lot to like in Mendez's thoughtfully constructed songs. Stream Greg Mendez below.
Greg has announced a pair of album release shows, happening in Philadelphia (June 4 at Johnny Brenda's) and NYC (June 11 at Purgatory). Shannen Moser, whose band he plays guitar in, opens both shows, with Swim Camp joining them in Philly and Allegra Krieger and a special guest providing additional support in NYC. Tickets are on sale now.
Shannen released the fantastic The Sun Still Seems to Move last year. Stream that below, as well.
