“Brooklyn punks exude their exceptional brashness.” – Consequence of Sound 
  
“ It’d leave you breathless if you weren’t humming along.” - NPR 
  
 
  
Brooklyn based garage rock trio Sharkmuffin is made up of Tarra Theissen (vocals/guitar) and Natalie Kirch (vocals/bass).  Together, they create super-heavy, jagged, and exceedingly catchy punk rock, which Consequence of Sound states, “As their name implies, this is a vicious band with plenty of teeth.” Their debut full-length album,Chartreuse, will be released next week on August 7 via State Capital/Little Dickman Records. However, you can stream the album now on Consequence of Sound
  
The album features drumming from Patty Schemel (Upset, Death Valley Girls, Hole) and marks a whole new era in their style of music. The noise-punk-meets-psychedelic power pop group has evolved their sound on the new album, and the result is a full length filled with commanding hits.

THE SHEEPDOGS Announce Fall North American Tour Dates

THE SHEEPDOGS Announce North American Tour Dates This Fall

New Album Future Nostalgia Out October 2 via Dine Alone Records
The Sheepdogs, credit Matt Barnes
 Following a string of festival appearances over the summer, The Sheepdogs will embark on an extensive North American tour beginning in September and making stops in Austin, Los Angeles, Chicago, Denver, Nashville and more. See full routing below, and PRESS HERE to purchase tickets.

The Sheepdogs remain steadfast in their commitment to rock n' roll excellence with their third album Future Nostalgia out October 2, 2015 via Dine Alone Records. Since their inception, the band has always sought to play the kind of music they themselves love: "Pure, simple, good-time music," as singer/guitarist Ewan Currie puts it. It's no surprise, then, that the album is firmly rooted in the rock tradition that listeners have come to expect from the boys. PRESS HERE to watch the lyric video for single "Downtown". Fans can pre-order the album on iTunes HERE, and can also pre-order bundles including merch onwww.thesheepdogs.com.
 
Formed in Saskatoon, The Sheepdogs have followed in the footsteps of Canadian rock legends including Neil Young, The Band and The Guess Who with a bold take on classic guitar rock and polished retro sound. The band came into the national spotlight in 2011 as the first unsigned band to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone, which led to a performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and a special appearance on Project Runway. A live favorite, The Sheepdogs have played at numerous festivals and headlining tours across North America, including performances at Bonnaroo, Coachella, Lollapalooza, opening for the likes of Kings of Leon and John Fogerty, and sharing the stage with Jason Sudeikis, Will Forte and Justin Long at Stones Fest. For their last self-titled LP, The Sheepdogs worked with Patrick Carney of The Black Keys to produce the collection, which debuted at No. 1 on the Canadian Top 200 SoundScan Chart, and garnered three No. 1 singles. The band has also won four JUNO awards, and been nominated for seven over their impressive career.

The Sheepdogs are Ewan Currie (lead vocal/guitar), Ryan Gullen (bass/vox), Sam Corbett (drums/vox), Shamus Currie (keys/horns) and Rusty Matyas (guitar/vox).

"Eliot Sumner will have you dancing with new single 'After Dark'" - Billboard

"['Dead Arms & Dead Legs' is] brooding, minimal, beautiful" - The Sunday Times (UK)

"['Dead Arms & Dead Legs' is] a pretty huge pop song, with Sumner's androgynous alto sounding dusty and world-weary over a cloudy melody, anxious percussion, and-by song's end-a seasick swell of feedback" - The Fader

Today, Eliot Sumner announces tour dates with On An On with stops including Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and more - see full routing below. The tour follows the premiere of "Dead Arms & Dead Legs", Eliot's first new music of 2015, on The Fader PRESS HEREto listen and PRESS HEREto watch the video. PRESS HERE to listen to her second song "After Dark", which premiered on Billboard, and PRESS HEREto watch the video on Noisey.

Eliot's EP Informationwhich was released in 2014 via Cherrytree/Interscope still bore some of the synth-pop hallmarks of her output as I Blame Coco, but its release captured a new audience with a renewed sense of focus and clarity. There are some more sophisticated influences on the record, from her favorite band as a teenager, the Bad Seeds, to bands like Cluster, Faust, and Kraftwerk. Following the release of the EP, Eliot joined Lykke Li as support on her European tour dates.

Bikini Kill is the infamously fierce, riot grrrl band featuring feminist punk pioneersKathleen Hanna, Tobi Vail, Billy Karren and Kathi Wilcox. Bikini Kill’s first collection of work, Revolution Girl Style Now, will be released on vinyl, CD, and digital formats for the first time on September 22 via Bikini Kill Records. There will also have a limited edition replica version of the demo cassette available by mail order only.
 
The Revolution Girl Style Now reissue features three previously unreleased and mostly unheard tracks: “ Ocean Song”, “Just Once”, and “Playground”. These songs feature a decidedly more grunge sound than the rest of the Bikini Kill catalog. Fun fact: the tape actually runs out as they’re recording “Playground”.

  
Watch the Revolution Girl Style Now Video Trailer featuring footage from Bikini Kill’s first Olympia, WA show by clicking image above &  HERE 
Filmed by Brian Ruff, edited by Kathleen Hanna and Kathi Wilcox.
 
The  Revolution Girl Style Now demo tape was originally self released in May of 1991. The demo was recorded by Pat Maley at the ABC House in Olympia, WA earlier that year. Bikini Kill played one of their first shows at the house the night before and left their equipment set up to record the demo the next day. The songs were mixed by Guy Picciotto (Fugazi) and mastered by John Golden for this reissue.
 
Preorders are up now and powered by CASH Music’s brand new shopping cart. The first 500 LP preorders come with a limited edition poster and the first 300 CD preorders come with a free button & sticker.
 
 
Bikini Kill was a feminist punk band based in Olympia, WA and Washington DC, forming in 1990 and breaking up in 1997. Kathleen Hanna sang, Tobi Vail played drums, Billy Karren (a.k.a. Billy Boredom) played guitar, and Kathi Wilcox played bass. Sometimes they switched instruments. Bikini Kill is credited with instigating the Riot Grrrl movement in the early 90’s via their political lyrics, zines, and confrontational live show.

Bikini Kill Records was started in 2012 by Bikini Kill to document and reissue their back catalog. They are exclusively distributed by Dischord Direct.

Pearl Charles shares new video + releases Burger Records EP

PEARL CHARLES SHARES VIDEO FOR "YOU CAN CHANGE" VIA NOISEY

PLAYING AYATANA, BURGER A GO GO AND DESERT STARS FESTIVALS

PEARL CHARLES OUT NOW VIA BURGER RECORDS

WATCH: "You Can Change" -  https://youtu.be/TFeixNSSyJI

PURCHASE: Pearl Charles EP - https://pearlcharlesmusic.bandcamp.com/

To coincide with this week's release of her self-titled debut EP for Burger Records, Los Angeles' Pearl Charles is back to share the video for its lead single "You Can Change." The video finds Pearl, the Fader-described "s moky-voiced sweetheart," front and center. The Angelo Izzo-directed clip is suitably psychedelic for the song's Laurel Canyon-indebted sound. 

Speaking about the video, Pearl said that it is, "almost like a moving photograph, layering slowly changing images of myself over faster changing images of nature. These layers are reflective of the constant change all around us, but also the lack of mobility that is felt in the lyrics. Angela Izzo shot everything in-camera to capture a realistic portrait of myself in a surrealistic psychedelic scene."

Watch the video above now and see below for all upcoming Pearl Charles tour dates.

About Pearl Charles:

At the young age of 23, Pearl Charles already has deep roots in the Los Angeles music community. An LA Native, Pearl embodied California rock and roll cool even before she took her natural position as a figure in the local music scene (and beyond). Pearl started logging miles on the road with her first band, old­timey Americana duo The Driftwood Singers, at age 18, followed by a lengthy stint drumming and singing in garage­-pop band The Blank Tapes. The Blank Tapes toured extensively and earned accolades from Rolling Stone and The New Yorker for their sunny lo-­fi surf rock. Along the way, Pearl collaborated with artists such as Jonathan Wilson, Stephen McBean (Black Mountain), Farmer Dave Scher (Beachwood Sparks) and Johnathan Rice, as well as toured extensively internationally, supporting diverse artists such as Father John Misty, Matt Costa, Thee Oh Sees, Kim Deal, The Growlers, Allah Las and Mystic Braves. Despite all of this, she managed to find time to earn a BFA in Music from CalArts.

Embarking on a solo career in 2015, Pearl is set to solidify her own name and place by releasing a 6 song debut EP on Burger Records this summer. Pearl recorded her self-titled EP track by track with a select group of producers and a little help from her friends, many of whom are notable LA musicians in their own right, including Joel Jerome (La Sera, Cherry Glazerr) and Taylor Locke (Rooney). Though she draws inspiration from the legendary scenes of the 60's and 70's, from Laurel Canyon to The Factory, from Haight- Ashbury to Muscle Shoals, she also counts contemporary artists such as Tame Impala, Mac DeMarco, Sharon Van Etten and Jenny Lewis as influences. Pearl Charles writes and sings songs with a distinctly unique voice, creating a sound that is both timeless yet undeniably here, now.

July 30, 2015, Ballast Key, Fla. – Faith No More have posted a live video for the single, “Superhero” (https://youtu.be/YX1YGMu9f-U).

The clip was filmed at The Fillmore in Detroit on May 8. 

Faith No More is in the midst of a North American tour, playing the Masquerade Music Park in Atlanta this evening.

“What this tells me,” said Faith No More founder and bass player Bill Gould, of the album’s successful launch, “is that there is a need out there; people want to hear things that exist outside the mold. It makes me feel grateful and it gives me hope.”

Pre-order DEATH MAGIC now and see below for all other upcoming live HEALTH dates.


What the press is saying about DEATH MAGIC:

 "Some of the songs are riotous and merciless, suggesting the experience of being perforated alive. But at other times HEALTH lands on moments of triumphant arena pop so saccharine and innocent that I wasn't sure I was listening to the same band." - The New Yorker

"even when DEATH MAGIC is pitched to its abrasive, scabrous extremes, there's a thrill in being taken over by a sound so meticulously crafted." - NPR

"HEALTH's "DEATH MAGIC" sounds like peak Nine Inch Nails filtered through "Yeezus," in the headspace of a band that had just written the soundtrack for a third person shooter game. That means it's pretty good." - Billboard

 
"HEALTH's evolution as a band has led them to some pretty dark shit and - pop, dance, noise, whatever - DEATH MAGIC wryly explores all of it." - LA Weekly
