welcoming Mothpuppy // stream "Flea" // Cool & Pretty out 3/10

we've been sitting on this news for far too long, and are profoundly excited to finally announce Mothpuppy's debut album, Cool & Pretty will be out March 10th. The Le Sigh have premiered "Flea," the first single off of the record, below. Listen, and read an excerpt from The Le Sigh's Abbie Jones:

“Flea” is a dreamy, abashed waltz with gentle notes to reassure the self. Murphy proves that disclosing your darkest moments can be empowering as she depicts a relationship on the edge of combustion. She croons with a palpable sense of unease creeping into her heart, “Why did you kill me / My body was perfect / Free of all defects / I latched on to you.”

this album is truly incredible, and "Flea" is a fantastic introduction.

hello, Spew

we are beyond excited to be releasing Spew's debut EP, Only The Worst this friday. the album premiered via the truly wonderful Dan G at Post-Trash. an excerpt:

"Blending elements of post-hardcore, math rock, skate metal, and noise punk to their own spastic whim, Spew's debut is unrelenting and thoroughly abrasive. Built on dizzying menace ("Bad Egg") and jagged opposition ("No Reference Cartoon"), the duo's technical ability is unquestionably phenomenal but it's their destructive spirit that really shines in only the worst of ways. Devastation you can get behind."
