Austin lovelies, Alex Napping, are our newest additions to the Father/Daughter team. Fresh off the heels of their 2016 releases, Trembles Parts I and II, the group tests out their new dynamic sound with their next record, Mise En Place. They share with us their first single, "Living Room" - a moody and honest look into the feelings that come with inviting someone new into your life and into a place that could be real or just made up. Stereogum wrote an awesome piece about the new track here, so peep that if you just love alternative rock and roll publications and need some cool content in your life.
Pre-order the record on Bone and Cyan A-side/B-side wax or on Black wax on our store or our bandcamp page, and hit up Sports Day Records for a copy of Mise En Place on cassette!

That's right. Our besties in Diet Cig are releasing their first full-length in just a few months! Swear I’m Good At This is the first full-length from the band and accumulates their tenacity for crafting life-affirming, relatable tales with a gutsy heart at their core. Luciano has the ability to write lyrics that are both vulnerable and badass, perfecting a storm of emotive reflection that creates a vision of a sweaty, pumped-up room screaming these lines in unison. The folks at Pitchfork featured the track "Tummy Ache" on their site, calling the songwriting a sentimental and relatable mix of lo-fi indie pop. Diet Cig make it okay to be the hot mess that you are.
Nab a copy on wax or on CD at the Frenchkiss Records store or a limited edition red and gold glitter cassette from our store here! Stream "Tummy Ache" the first single from their new record below.

Life is about doing new things, trying new things, and listening to new things. Why not take a dive into Hiccup's upcoming debut record Imaginary Enemies? We put out the Hiccup cassingle almost two years ago, and since then the band has been ferociously writing, playing shows, and mastering their craft. The newest single "Teasin'" displays signs of their maturity as a band and their skill in creating songs with both pop hooks and relentless pop-punk riffing. Imaginary Enemies, Hiccup's debut full-length effort, was produced by Kyle Gilbride (Waxahatchee, Swearin', All Dogs), and will be released on Father/Daughter Records on March 24, 2017.
Pre-order Imaginary enemies here and stream "Teasin'" below.

Father/Daughter and Lame-O are tag-teaming to release Big Day, Loose Tooth's sophomore album. After touring for the last few years and playing countless local shows, the members in Loose Tooth have spun together a true cohesive piece that represents where the band stands on their sound and message. Being noisy, poppy, and heavy all the same time is a tough feat to master, but Loose Tooth has done the dang thing. Pre-order Big Day here and stream "Garlic Soup" below.

CALLING ALL STUDENTS!
We're looking for an intern for the upcoming Spring 2017 semester, so if you live in the SF Bay Area and love independent music, we wanna talk to you!
- You gotta be a student. Educating yourself is important, and if we can help you succeed in the realm of higher education in the form of "college credit", we've got your back.
- Must be able to commute to the Sunset neighborhood in San Francisco 1-2 times a week.
- Must work comfortably around cats, friendly or grumpy ones!
- Experience in excel or word docs is preferable, but not absolutely necessary.
This isn't an internship where we make you get coffee or lunch for us. We'll try our hardest to show you the ins and outs of working at an independent record label, we promise! If this sounds like something you'd like to do, email email@example.com for more details.
