Lady Parts stream "Shrill" via GoldFlakePaint + pre-order

Lady Parts fantastic new record Shrill is streaming via GoldFlakePaint today, before its release on Friday, October 13th. Across Shrill's 7 tracks, Lady Parts explore a gambit of experiences and throw darts -- sonically and lyrically the record is a true ripper.

From (all-star) Tom at GoldFlakePaint: "With hints of Waxahatchee and Girlpool, as well as occasional bursts of Sleater Kinney-esque drive, ‘Shrill’ is a reckless and restless undertaking, songs such as the opening ‘Day To Day’ and closing number ‘Think Again’ flying past in a whirlwind of sentiment, while ‘Rain’ offers a glimpse at the other side of the coin, more melodic and restrained than the aforementioned tracks, bringing us back to that wavering balance that just about holds its own, despite numerous attempts to disturb the whole thing."

Full Body full record stream via The Alternative + pre-order

The Alternative has premiered Full Body's upcoming record What's Good? in full! An incredible record full of hooks and spasms, the Rochester quartet (mems. Big Fred) has turned in a record that fits beautifully alongside other Sad Cactus gems, while maintaining a distinctive voice.

Eli Enis says: "It’s a record that drips and oozes as much as it clatters and crashes; whips and hurls as easily as it chains itself in place. Although Exploding In Sound-ish acts like Pile, Two Inch Astronaut and peaer are certainly reasonable comparisons given Full Body’s long, monotone vocal sustains and needly guitarwork, What’s Good? travels at a pace that often recalls the prickly jolt of Donovan Wolfington or Prince Daddy & the Hyena. There aren’t really conventional hooks, as the vocals are often secondary within the mix, but the lead riffs violently scratch themselves into the inner linings of tracks like “Shut It Down” and “Too Real.”
