Debut Fast Car Slow Car Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Dadas, the debut release from Fast Car Slow Car, a.k.a. Breshon Martzall (Straw Hats), recently arrived. Produced by Rob Grote (The Districts, Goat Mumbles, Straw Hats), the album swims in electro-R&B waters. A tranquil, humid haze merges with the personal nature of the lyrics. Sonic textures and serenading vocals induce movement and reflective evaluations. House Cat will be presenting Fast Car Slow Car's EP Release Show & Beyond the Bars Benefit at Beautiful World Syndicate on Saturday, June 29, supported by Body Meat and EM-E.

   

New Stephen Freshy Masi EP Available for Streaming & Download

Here's Two Songs For Ya is the aptly-named new release from Stephen Freshy Masi. The recordings hit you with their lush, melodic, breezy tones, creating a seamless yet intricate, sonic setting. Earnest whilst vibrantly refined, these songs exude a practiced polish that seems radio/label ready.

New Mannequin Pussy LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Mannequin Pussy just dropped their third full-length and the band's first album on Epitaph Records. With Patience, the quartet's diverse songwriting capabilities are on full display, allowing one to more easily envision the group's leap from DIY spaces to much larger stages. Their latest LP was produced by Will Yip at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA. All digital proceeds from Bandcamp will be donated to The Trevor Project, a non-profit organization focused on suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth, and if you choose to "name your price," Epitaph will match your amount. Starting in August, Mannequin Pussy are set to go on a month-long, national, headlining tour in support of the new release, and they'll be closing things out with a welcome home celebration on Thursday, September 19 at the First Unitarian Church, with tourmates Destroy Boys & Ellis.
