welcoming Trophy Dad to the family + "Addison" song premiere on The FADER

we couldn't be more excited to welcome madison, wi's Trophy Dad to the family, along with the announcement that their new ep Dogman will be out May 5th. The first song off of Dogman, "Addison" premiered today via the FADER.

"On "Addison," Trophy Dad frontwoman Abby Sherman describes the border between codependency and manipulation, candidly delivering lines like, "I am wrapped inside your skin/ Won’t you gouge out my eyes with your thumbs?/ Let’s stay in." It’s gruesome and intensely physical, sentiments that are underscored by the instrumentation — the chord progressions on "Addison" fall down and get back up in turns, and the percussion paces itself in violent, punchy fits."

new Double Grave song + video

GoldFlakePaint have premiered the new song and video "All My Heroes" off of their upcoming record New Year's Daydream out April 28th.

Tom Johnson of GFP says:

"Punctuated by an ever-shifting set of illustrations, the result is a striking display of colours and shapes that leap out of the otherwise greying world cut out of the song itself."

hello Bucket! + Bouquet EP

coming hot out of western Mass, we're excited to welcome Bucket to the roster, and announce that their new EP Bouquet will be out March 31st. The first song, "Glue Gate" is streaming now, courtesy of the Pioneer Valley Underground.

Andrew Wang: “Gluegate” kicks off with textural guitar work reminiscent of classic American lo-fi band Swirlies; interludes of feedback and whammy dives provide a perfect backdrop for vocalist Will Meyer’s sharp sing-spoken delivery. All the noisy atmospherics and slidey noodling belie a rather unconventional song structure. The first chorus doesn’t come in until halfway through, and the track peaks with the guitars continuing to meander into a perfectly off kilter solo."

Mothpuppy's new record "Cool & Pretty" out now + nice review

Mothpuppy's incredible record Cool & Pretty is out now on cassette and digital (via their bandcamp). Check out what GoldFlakePaint had to say about the album:

"Morgan Murphy sings with a gusto and buried sense of longing that feels crushingly pertinent, even to those of us on the outside of such a story. This kind of unbridled desire for making the most of what you’ve got is wonderfully invigorating but it feels beaten down, for much of the record, by life’s (and other people’s) ability to shackle such things."

The tape is for sale in our store, and comes with a digital copy of the record :)
