Mannequin Pussy

The third full-length from Mannequin Pussy, Patience is an album fascinated with the physical experience of the body, its songs tracking the movements of mouths and hands and racing hearts, skin and spit and teeth and blood. Deeply attuned to the power of their own physicality, the Philadelphia-based band channels complex emotion in blistering riffs, […]

Y La Bamba

Y La Bamba has been many things, but at the heart of it is singer-songwriter Luz Elena Mendoza’s inquisitive sense of self. Their fifth record, Mujeres, carries on the Portland-based band’s affinity for spiritual contemplation, but goes a step further in telling a story with a full emotional spectrum. Coming off Ojos Del Sol, one […]

MIKE

Through his mixtapes Winter New York and Longest Day, Shortest Night, MIKE started to tell the story of his childhood, and with mixtape May God Bless Your Hustle he made a definitive statement on the current state of youth in New York. That project turned heads outside of MIKE’s immediate community in the city, earning […]

Radkey

Radkey does whatever they want. Whether it’s hard and fast, or slow and groovy as fuck. Radkey does whatever they want, and that’s what rock and roll is all about. You can hear it in the music and it makes you want to fucking party. Radkey doesn’t cater to one sound by calling themselves a […]

Greet Death

Greet Death is a three piece post-rock band from Flint, Michigan. They initially made waves with their infectious debut album “Dixieland” (Flesh and Bone, 2017). The album was well received, with Pitchfork giving it a “7.7” rating and stating “…This is a remarkably tuneful, forthright pop-rock band that just so happens to play six-minute songs […]

Glitterer

Glitterer was born in August of 2017, when the eponymous Glitterer EP appeared on Bandcamp. To some, Glitterer seemed to manifest the parallel identity, something between an alter-ego and a superego, of Ned Russin, who wrote, sang, and played every note of the EP’s eight songs. Ned Russin is a New Yorker, by way of […]

Madeline Kenney

Raised in the Pacific Northwest, Madeline Kenney keeps a soil-tethered root to the natural world in her art. A move to the Bay Area in 2013 plus a chance encounter with Chaz Bundick (Toro Y Moi) led to their collaborative recording of her Signals EP, followed by Kenney’s debut album, Night Night At The First […]

Mothica

Mothica is the audio / visual project of McKenzie Ellis. Like a moth, nocturnal yet drawn to the light, her lyrics balance clever wordplay doting on intimate and often dark life experiences. Growing up in the suburbs of Oklahoma, McKenzie was a part of a classical guitar ensemble at an arts-focused public high school. At […]

Husbands

In 2015, they released Golden Year, a sunny, reverb-drenched collection of beach punk accompanied by Brian Wilson-esque melodies. Now, for their new LP, After the Gold Rush Party (Cowboy 2.0 Records), Husbands adds no-wave, garage punk, […]
