Lookers new single "Depressed" + new album 11/9

we're very excited to be working on the debut record from Providence, RI's Lookers. Their first single "Depressed" premiered last week via The Alternative. It has received subsequent coverage from Post-Trash and NPR.

Dan Goldin of Post-Trash writes: "Sad Cactus Records have a real knack at finding great bands before anyone else is talking about them, and Providence’s Lookers are no exception. Set to release their debut EP, Mirage, on November 9th, the band’s first single “Depressed” is locked in from the very start, a circular groove bounces along with hypnotic energy before the gnashing vocals add an element of aggression. Muggs Fogarty voice ranges between sweet warble and agitated howl, both soothing and commanding, winding together with the tangled slow burn of the guitars. The song grows more caustic as it unfolds, a wash of noise permeating their brash post-punk, only to emerge deeper into their impenetrable rhythm."

Tundrastomper release new tape "For Steffen Only" + share new video

big news from Tundraland -- the shifting quartet has released their newest effort For Steffen Only via cassette and digital. A more experimental release, For Steffen is comprised of outtakes and unused song snippets, blended together with known Tundrastomper melodies and bursts of unmitigated noise. It is truly delightful.

In addition, Tundrastomper has released a phenomenal video for their song "For Flies Only" off of March's Clean It Up. Entirely created by Saera Kochanski, the video is the perfect accompaniment to the frenetic track, full of color and visual explosions.
