Peach Kelli Pop
Peach Kelli Pop
PEACH KELLI POP is a band from Los Angeles, CA by way of Ottawa, Canada and was founded by multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Allie Hanlon. The band is known for playing Ramones-structured rock songs: Fast tempos, 4/4 drums, layered with loud guitars, and laden with immediate, infectious vocal melodies. Hanlon’s songwriting is unique in that it encompasses great emotional profundity and the use of the abstract and imagination.
Fenster
Fenster
Fenster is a psychedelic pop band consisting of Johnny (DE) JJ (USA) Lucas (FR) and Elias (DE). Their music is in a constant state of evolution, both within each song and on a zoomed out scale, exploring the sonic realms of hypnagogic pop throughcosmic grooves andechoey slow jamz. The band just finished recording their fourth full length album which was tracked live in a magical house in the countryside of Tuscany, between the mountains and the sea. It was the first time the band composed every single song together in a room ­ thus the name of the album, "The Room" (due in September 2018).
Swearing At Motorists
Swearing At Motorists
Swearing At Motorists has come a long way since it’s birth as a poster for a fake band in 1994. A few months after the posters mysteriously appeared in record stores & music venues around Dayton, Ohio, Dave Doughman jokingly scrawled the name on a cassette of home recordings that he gave to friends, and the band was officially born. The late ’90s found S@M releasing a slew of 7” EPs on different labels, and after getting repeated plays from John Peel and favorable press worldwide, the band landed a contract with the then new label Secretly Canadian. They released 2 EPs & 4 LPs on SC, including 2000’s Number Seven Uptown & 2002’s This Flag Signals Goodbye, both of which were named MOJO Magazine’s “Underground Album of the Year” the years they were released. Swearing At Motorists relocated to Berlin, Germany in 2005, releasing their last LP for Secretly Canadian, Last Night Becomes This Morning the following year before quietly disappearing into the never-ending Berlin night… 8 years later, the band resurfaced in Hamburg, Germany, with a new album titled While Laughing, The Joker Tells The Truth, released on Anton Newcombe’s label A Recordings Ltd. Co-produced by Dave and Rick McPhail (of the legendary German band Tocotronic), the album tells the tales of those “lost” 8 years in classic Motorists style. Perhaps another underground figure of the 90s/00s, author Camden Joy describes it best: Like Iggy Pop’s great lost Nashville record or the legendary demos for the Strokes masterpiece that never was, this recording is full of catchy courage, significant low notes, bedroom rhythms, hooks, and so on, all of which make for an impossible amount of pleasure. This Swearing At effort towers heads and squirrels above whatever that was you were just listening to. I see why Rolling Stone gave it five stars. —Camden Joy
