AllegrA shares first single + video "i'm an introvert" via Stereogum

"i'm an introvert" is the first single off of AllegrA's fantastic upcoming self-titled full length, due out November 10th, 2017. AllegrA is a phenomenal record full of catchy songs that give a window into the mind of Allegra Eidinger -- these are paeans to the tribulations of growth and fundamental experience. Of "i'm an introvert" James Rettig says:

"lead single “I’m An Introvert” is needling and warm, pulsing with the pressure-around-the-eyes feeling you get when your mind won’t let itself clear and interact with whoever’s standing right in front of you. It’s about being forced to make small talk at a party, where conversations can often slip from the banal to the existential due to lack of common ground."

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."
