Philadelphia, a musical city known more for soul, R&B, and hip-hop, has been efficiently churning out absolutely stellar alternative rock acts over the last few years – Kurt Vile, the War on Drugs, Dr. Dog, and Strand of Oaks to name a few. Now joining these ranks are relative newcomers The Districts. Discovered in high school after their electrifying single Funeral Beds took off on social media, the Districts are releasing their label debut next week – entitled A Flourish and a Spoil. This album is full of rock played the way rock should we played, confident and energetic. Take a listen now on NPR First Listen.
