who is spelling reform?
Philadelphia indie band Spelling Reform sounds like The New Pornographers fronted by John Darnielle from The Mountain Goats.
The band’s debut LP, the 11-song “No One’s Ever Changed,” was recorded and produced by Hop Along guitarist Joe Reinhart and is out November 18, 2016 on Black Rd Records.
Spelling Reform, whose live performances and 2015 EP “Diving Bell” have been praised by The Philadelphia Inquirer, WXPN and more, has released an exciting and urgent record in “No One’s Ever Changed,” sure to be a late contender for one of the best records to come out of Philadelphia’s dense indie scene this year.
