This Friday, October 30, two of our favorite artists will be releasing new music into the wild.
First up, Seattle’s own Nail Polish will be releasing Abrupt (Digital/Cassette), a short but energetic collection of post-punk gems. These dudes craft jagged, jarring songs about anxiety, street harassment, and existential dread. They’re a blast at parties.
The buds at Brooklyn Vegan were kind enough to write-up the track “Neighborhood Watch” (stream below). The whole release drops on Bandcamp good old fashioned cassette tape this Friday!
Pre-order Nail Polish on cassette HERE (includes DL code).
Also out on Friday, October 30, the full-length release In Between (Digital/Cassette) by NYC-via-Seattle songwriter Big Eater.
Big Eater originated in Seattle as a solo project of Matt Bachmann. In 2014, Matt moved to New York City, formed a band, and recorded the twelve songs that make up his debut record, In Between. Matt also plays bass in the excellent band Mega Bog, who are signed to Seattle/Brooklyn label/homies Couple Skate. The overall mood of In Between reminds us of two of our all-time favorites: Yo La Tengo’s …And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out and Talk Talk’s Spirit of Eden.
There’s a great review of the track “Lazy Days” over at Impose Magazine. The whole release drops on iTunes, Spotify, etc.,this Friday, as well as a limited edition cassette mail order. Stream “Lazy Days” below.
