Palm is playing some US shows with the incredible Wye Oak before they head to Europe. And they've got some copies of Trading Basics with them! The third pressing will probably be the last, so head over to their Bandcamp to grab one while you still can.
On Video Age’s forthcoming album Pop Therapy, out June 15, longtime friends and songwriting partners Ross Farbe and Ray Micarelli conjure up a thrilling assortment of experimental pop songs. Using a palette of vintage synthesizers and the propulsion of a Sequential Circuits Drumtraks drum machine, the New Orleans-based group’s buoyant synth-pop echoes from some imagined vision of the past, leaning on an invented nostalgia to soundtrack an ideal future that never arrived. Video Age brings that future fully to life on Pop Therapy.
We're long overdue for an update! Since last time, we collabed with DZ Tapes on the release of Dove Lady's debut album, One. Check out the track "7777" below and stay tuned for more news on what we've been up to.
The Caddywhompus idioverse — the shared, invented language, subtle and unspoken gestures, thoughts and quirks wrought from close bonds and experience — is one unique to Chris Rehm and Sean Hart. From growing up only a short bike ride from one another in Houston to nearly a decade of performance together as a guitar and drum duo in New Orleans, their years-in-the-making style consists of distorted walls of sound with lightspeed melodic U-turns and waves of brilliant noise, a dynamic that only could be learned by the two players on Odd Hours, their latest album out April 14.
Caddy will be heading to SXSW and performing at BUKU Music + Art Project. A summer tour is in the works. For now, listen to the first track, "Decent," via NPR or Spotify and pre-order Odd Hours on vinyl through our online store or Bandcamp.
