Kississippi

New Kississippi LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Co-produced with Headroom's Kyle Pulley, Kississippi's first full-length album, Sunset Blush, is out now. Composed, confident melodies are dispersed throughout the record. There’s a smooth, silky polish to the overall sound - one that forms a steadying foundation when the pull of personal lyricism grabs hold. In the midst of a nonstop touring schedule, Kississippi will performing at The Foundry on Sunday, June 10, on a billing that will also include Have Mercy, Gleemer, and Super American.

   

New Track: "Easier to Love" - Kississippi

Kississippi, a.k.a. Zoe Reynolds, has shared the release date for her forthcoming album, Sunset Blush, due out April 6. Reynolds is currently on a hefty U.S. tour with Beach Slang and Dashboard Confessional. Below is her latest single "Easier to Love," which teeters between holding on to one's independence and sacrificing one's self to be with another. How much is enough, and how much is too much?

   

New Track: "Cut Yr Teeth" - Kississippi

Deli faves Kississippi just dropped "Cut Yr Teeth," the lead single from their forthcoming debut LP Sunset Blush. It's "about recognizing the toxicity of a relationship, and letting go of it along with your trust for the other half." Frontwoman Zoe Reynolds shares, "I wrote this song (and most of the forthcoming record) about finding my voice after having it taken away time and time again by people I thought were more powerful than me." "Cut Yr Teeth" also features Tombo Crush's Mary Allen on backing vocals. Sunset Blush is due out in April via SideOneDummy Records. (Photo by Megan Thompson)

   

Weekend Warrior, September 22 - 24

Summertime has come and gone, and fall is upon us. However, those in need of some music therapy can hone in on one place, and make a two-day appointment. This Friday and Saturday, World Café Live hosts the succinctly named Philly Music & Arts Fest. Among the plethora of local artists canvassing both levels, the spellbinding free-floating melodies of Kississippi, the experimental existential-searching of Eric Slick, the serenading surges of Abi Reimold, the cruising, cosmic psych-pop of Ceramic Animal, and the infectious, rumbling emotives of Cayetana. The quintet of Tiny Hueman kicks off the affair on Saturday afternoon with the endearing open-book of Dominic continuing down the line. Familiarity meets futuristic in the groove-spiraling, psych folk of Pine Barons. Exploring personal depths with a robust energetic push, Sports instantly adheres. And the episodic, comforting narratives of Slaughter Beach, Dog and the candidly soulful hip-hop, hybrid observations of Ivy Sole serves as a snapshot of a lineup that offers a solid sampling of the litany of artistic excellence within our city. – Michael Colavita
