“It’s all tautly patient, skulking around more like a velociraptor than a pack of canines. When this beast finally attacks, after a carnival-like guitar solo, with all instruments blaring and Creevy belting out, “Now I see the beauty/ It’s necessary to give a lady love,” it’s as wonderful and strange as the sight of that Target-uniformed army of zombie males in the video – and Creevy rising above them.” – Pitchfork on ‘Told You I’d Be With the Guys’
Today’s the day Apocalipstick drops – thankfully, ’cause we couldn’t wait another minute. Cherry Glazerr‘s first release through Secretly Canadian finds the Los Angeles trio in a compelling, self-assured sonic sphere – featuring electrified mayhem and guitar riffs galore, with lyricism ranging from female solidarity to wearing the same underwear for three days straight. It’s peculiar, bright, colorful, with a kick-in-the-teeth edge – in a strangely pleasant way.
In addition to releasing Apocalipstick, Cherry Glazerrs hitting the road – and a portion of the proceeds from the tour will be donated to support Planned Parenthood Los Angeles, which provides life-saving cancer screenings, birth control, prevention and treatment of STDs and sexual health education to Los Angeles Countys residents.
Faye Webster, the 21-year-old Atlanta-based singer-songwriter and decorated photographer, releases her third full-length album, 'Atlanta Millionaires Club,' today via Secretly Canadian. 'Atlanta Millionaires Club' is an album stitched together by intimate songwriting about lonesomeness in spite of Webster’s connection to a larger community.
Helado Negro has remixed Steven A. Clark’s “Feel This Way." Taken from Clark’s recent LP Where 'Neon Goes To Die,' Negro makes the track entirely his own.
This morning, Cherry Glazerr, the Los Angeles based trio led by 22-year-old frontwoman Clementine Creevy, premiered the Reggie Watts remix of “Daddi” via Highsnobiety. “Daddi” is the “itchy, pressurized panic attack” (Stereogum) lead single from their album 'Stuffed & Ready.'
Whitney – the Chicago-based band led by vocalist/drummer Julien Ehrlich and guitarist Max Kakacek – has expanded its fall U.S. headline tour. This includes a second night at Brooklyn Steel in New York, which the band previously sold out on the back of their debut album, 'Light Upon The Lake.'
