In case you don’t have eyes or ears or a wifi connection, we’ll get you up to speed: for the past few months, the known modern world has been taken over by Chastity Belt and their incredible nation-spanning tour with our buds Pony Time. A great many publications/websites/blogs went out of their way to hype the band (for which we are very grateful). Most (all) of these reviews were generous in mentioning how the band is made up of WOMEN LADIES OVARIES who play MUSIC BOXES or something, and we just wanted to say COOL THANX U GO GIRLZ ROCK. Here’s a partially comprehensive rundown of a lot of the great stuff said about our resident babes Chastity Belt, and their album and tour in general:

MTV Hive

SSG Music

Brooklyn Vegan

Speak Into My Good Eye

Secret Note

The South End

Two Hands Clapping

Seattle Weekly

Knox Road

The Evan ‘Funk’ Davies Show

Whitman Pioneer

(but actually thanks for writing about the artists we work with, it’s great // you’re great // music is great)

Now that you’ve listened to the new Ubu Roi EP Nice Dude a bazillion times, come celebrate the release with us tonight at Therapy Lounge! The official ‘Ubu Roi 7″ Release Party’ rolls out around 9pm at 1509 Broadway (@Pike). Line-up includes the Fubu Boiz themselves, So Pitted, and Acapulco Lips. For more info, hit up the Fbook page!

It turns out that the Internet likes us okay too, because Nice Dude, the fancy new EP from Ubu Roi, premieres today on Diffuser.fm. Head over to Diffuser to listen to some serious lil rippers destroying instruments they borrowed from their friends. RIYL: gross punks, house parties, friendship, weird poops.

Thanks to Cameron Matthews and Diffuser.fm for a great review and for supporting our artists!

Hey cool dudes, do you want a picture of some guy’s pizza crotch that also has music on it? Then you should pre-order Ubu Roi’s EP, Nice Dude! For six whole dollars, you get four hella fresh tracks on smooth dookie brown vinyl, pressed for your enjoyment. Official release date is October 22nd, and we’re only making 300 copies, so get in on this hot dish. And by hot dish, I mean crotch pizza.
