Next week we’ll be heading north with fellow Gowanus, Brooklyn band Service (listen here)! We’ll be playing in MA and NH with them, then heading up to Maine, where they’ll play PICNIC and Geno’s, and we’ll hit Casco Bay for a boat party. Maybe we’ll even bring early copies of WEIRD FEARS…
BAND THINGS COMING UP!

Robot Princess - Serious Business on BTR [ep173]
Robot Princess is an indie rock band from New York City. Their music — often reflected in the candy-colored aesthetic of their artwork — is filled with big hooks, melodies, and backing vocals to sing along with, thanks to Beau Alessi’s fresh take on pop songwriting. There are elements of quirky 90s pop-punk and alternative here (we’re thinking Atom and His Package or some Weezer hits) all contributing to the pure fun factor of the band.
Featured song: “Action Park”

The newest release by Robot Princess, Teen Vogue, is now available.

We’ll make some more of these “moving pictures with songs” things, they’re fun.
O’Death - Wrong Time
New album coming in the fall, and I have the sneaking suspicion that it’s gonna be a good one.
I hope this doesn’t sound whiney: Listen, I love everyone, all their flaws and all their hopes n’ dreams. I just wanted to mention something I see ALOT on twitter. If you start a tweet with an “@” it means only the person you are tweeting at and also accounts that happen to follow both of you will see it. This means the top tweet was sent out to the few hundred people and made for super awesome word of mouth (a band’s best and truest friend!) and the bottom one is a very nice sentiment but no one will ever see it but us. I don’t want to sound ungrateful because both are pure acts of positivity but the bottom tweet is a missed opportunity. I see blogs, popular music-related sites and personalities make this mistake all the time. It’s still an amazing, wonderful gesture and a purely nice thing, but with the addition of a “.” or a “hey” could have been an even bigger and nicer thing. Also while I have your ear, I wanted to say that you’re beautiful wether or not you know you’re beautiful and THAT’S what makes you beautiful.
Draw me like one of your french girls,
