Ein paar Tracks von Alben des Infinity Cat-Labels aus Nashville hatte ich letzte Woche in den NC-Tracks, dann habe ich am Wochenende deren Soundcloud-Account durchgehört und ihren Labelshop leergekauft:

1x Dion Lunadon "Com/Broke" 7" for $6.00 each [ganz fieses Brett]
1x Infinity Cat Cassette Series: Daddy Issues - Cassette for $6.00 each [toller, vielleicht etwas zu simplistischer Grunge]
1x Ed Schrader's Music Beat "Jazz Mind" - LP for $13.00 each [beinahe zu cleverer Indie-Pop, circa Fat White Family]
1x Infinity Cat Cassette Series: Swim Team for $6.00 each [fetter, stellenweise toll facettenreicher Grunge]


Fettester Anspieltipp: Swim Team aus Cincinnati, LowFi und bretternde Grunge-Riffs mit ’ner ziemlich ausgiebige Prise Pop. Die könnten noch sehr sehr groß werden in ein paar Jahren, man beachte mal das vielschichtige Songwriting im Song „Crash Life“. Ganz groß! Das Debut-Album gibt's lediglich als (giftgrünes) Tape und auf Soundcloud (und auf Spotify, allerdings geofucked).

Swim Team – Swim Team

Cincinnati thrash-pop band Swim Team’s debut tape contains your 12 new favorite songs. It starts with “Dirty Work,” a grunge firecraker with unstoppable vocals, unapologetic lyrics, fuzzed-out guitar riffs, and a mid-song monologue that grows from a borderline deranged mumble to a ferocious catharsis. From then on, the album never stops. Feedback gives way to crunchy, headbang-inducing guitar and the drums and bass turn already-catchy tunes into straight up earworms with their relentless grooves. Singer Lillian Currens’ vocals jump from a caustic monotone to effortlessly cool croons to raw no-bullshit yelps, often seemlessly in the same track. Swim Team sounds like they could break free from your speakers at any moment, knocking you off your feet and leaving you scrambling for more.

Daddy Issues – Can We Still Hang

The band was originally conceived as a parody Twitter account by three close friends -- Jenna Moynihan, Jenna Mitchell, and Emily Maxwell -- who decided to turn their 140-character wit into three-minute pop songs. Thus, Daddy Issues was born. Their music lies somewhere between witchy grunge and surf glam-- kind of like what the girls from The Craft would sound like if they had opted to start a band instead of Invoking The Spirit. Their lyrics center on a young every-woman who celebrates small acts of rebellion while crushing on boys with blue hair.
