LANDLADY
LANDLADY
"This is the part of the song when we come together," Adam Schatz's voice rings out. "There's no before. There's no after. There's only this." Schatz leads Landlady, the Brooklyn five-piece whose 2014 Hometapes debut, Upright Behavior, boldly disrupts the notion of genre and reveals the soulful and continually-resonating work of Schatz and core band members Ian Chang, Ian McLellan Davis, Booker Stardrum, and Will Graefe, as well as a cast of NYC-based contributors gathered from Schatz's tandem walks of life as a solo musician, improviser, organizer, collaborator, promoter, and writer. Compared to rock and roll juggernauts like The Band and Talking Heads, Landlady merge vast skill, a bend toward experimentation, and a proven belief that songs can be a true extension of the human experience. The result is timeless and charted by their recorded works and transformative live shows - both critically-acclaimed and ever-evolving.

'Early next year, they’ll release a new album called The World Is A Loud Place, and it has an odd distinction: It’ll be the first album in Bandcamp history with animated-gif cover art. The band has shared two songs from the new album: The shimmering, uneasy “Electric Abdomen” and the lost-in-itself “Driving To California.” Both songs are grand, sweeping, idiosyncratic, impressively arranged pieces of work.' --STEREOGUM

"Eminently chill and sexy in equal measure but with out of this world complexity and musical sophistication ... This is the kind of record that kick-starts movements." --Afropunk

"It's pretty easy to get lost in the group ... lush harmonies fill your ears ... their groove is anything but ordinary." --okayplayer
Motel Pools
Motel Pools
Motel Pools is a garage punk rock project formed by California-native musician Chiara Angelicola (Bird Call). Chiara (born September 15, 1984) is an American singer-songwriter and musician, known for her work in the musical projects Motel Pools and Bird Call. Angelicola is known for her ever-evolving mercurial work as a songwriter, singer, electronic musician, performance artist, and pop/punk persona as the frontwoman of Motel Pools. Angelicola released a second volume of songs for her grimey horror picture show of sound. Abrasive yet darling, earnest and playful, Angelicola delivers a body of work that reckons with the perils of the ruthless music industry, her childhood suburban haunts, and former lovers. Produced by Angelicola herself, after previously working with producer and friend Kyp Malone (TV on the Radio), recorded at Black Lodge in Brooklyn with engineer Vishal Nayak, mixed by Gabriel Galvin, and mastered by Mark Santangelo. Motel Pools' first vinyl release features both volumes of EPs on side A and side B respectively. Released on Suburban Rage Records July 15th, 2016.
Cassandra Jenkins
Cassandra Jenkins
A songwriter who "knows how to leave an impression" with "elegantly celestial climaxes, emerald green-glowing guitar work" (Pitchfork) and "smoky" vocals (NPR), Cassandra stokes the campfire with the kind of pop that steals your breath and replaces it with a limb-surrendering rhythm.
