Top Five Fridays: creepoid

March 7, 2014

Hey Folks,

Welcome back to another exciting installment of Top Five Fridays, the part of the show where we track down some happening cats to hook us up with some of the tunes they’ve been jamming out to lately!  For today’s edition, I am stoked to welcome Philly rockers creepoid.  The band is hot off the release of their newest album, the self titled “Creepoid,” which dropped this month and has been getting crazy good press from far and wide.

Apparently no one remembered to tell creepoid about the whole “sophomore slump” thing, because their second record is nothing short of magnificent.  It is a dark, dreamy collection of songs that lose none of their punch in the hazy atmosphere of the album.  “Creepoid” is the kind of LP you want to listen to in one sitting, despite the fact that all these songs stand on their own incredibly well.  Check it out folks, because at the end of 2014 this is going to be one of the records you remember.  So with our further ado dear friends, give it up for creepoid’s top five:
