Forth Wanderers are a band we've long admired so it goes without saying we're very excited to welcome them and their new EP Slop to the label! The four-song collection is the first new material from the Montclair, NJ five piece since 2014's Tough Love. The Slop EP is a co-release with House Anxiety / Marathon Artists in the UK. Pre-order one of the limited edition 12" LPs & CDs HERE and listen to the title track on The Fader HERE.
"Soundtracked brilliantly by the band’s scratchy guitar solos and wavering vocal that almost always feels like it might collapse at any moment, the new film is a searing reminder that the oft-forgotten medium still has a hell of a lot to offer." GoldFlakePaint - our best buds across the pond - debuted Attic Abasement's "Guarantee Jesus" music video directed by Micah Van Hove. Watch it hereand buy Dream News on LP/CD here.
Pop-rock queen and ultimate craft and visual artist, Lisa Prank, gifts us this awesome new music video for her song 'Starting Again' with the help of director Faye Orlove. Filmed in Los Angeles at the Junior High Collective, Lisa Prank and Orlove work together to create some stunning visuals that are reminiscent of those 1980s montage videos and that time when our parents caught us singing into a hairbrush. Check out the official music video here, and make sure to order a copy of Adult Teen before they're sold out!
PWR BTTM returns to the scene with their new single, 'Projection', in what Stereogum calls, " both impudent pop-punk and spirited art-rock". 'Projection' maintains a sense of pain and joy throughout the track itself and uses a barrage of guitar licks to catch you off guard if you aren't already familiar with the band's dynamic. Stream it on our Soundcloud here or buy a digital copy here.
Mark your calendars, PWR BTTM and Lisa Prank are both coming to a city near you this fall! Talk about a killer tour, right? Tickets are available now so hit this Songkick link to buy a couple of tickets for you and your friends. Peep the kick-ass flyer below!

We're pleased as pie to welcome Milwaukee's Sat. Nite Duets to the Father/Daughter family. Their new album, Air Guitar, is an eclectic guitar pop lover's dream. Stereogum premiered the first single, "St. Yuppie" saying, "Sat. Nite Duets’ melodic prowess are firmly in place as they harmonize through deliciously hedonistic lines like “As you fade from the grave to the rave, you will shake the ass that’s behind you.” Pre-order the LP on black or bone + baby blue vinyl and CD now!
Attic Abasement's Dream News officially exists in the real (and digital) world today. It is a true honor to work with such a prolific band. Check it out on your preferred format and thanks for supporting true independent music.
