We are excited to announce our newest signing, Boston band Fiddlehead. The five-piece, who calls to mind 90s and early 2000s post-hardcore giants such as Rival Schools, Jawbox and Seaweed, will release their debut full-length Springtime and Blind on April 13th. Stereogum is premiering a new track "Lay Low" and video (directed by Fiddlehead guitarist Alex Henery) today. Pre-order for the album is currently available through in our store, and the band will hit the road for select tour dates this spring (all dates below).
Springtime and Blind is an exploration of grief - both introspective and through the insight of others. Following the release of their Out of the Bloom EP on Lockin Out Records, Fiddlehead have created a debut LP that shares an anguishing, relatable story of love and loss through the catharsis of spirited, loud indie rock. Consisting of guitarist Alex Henery (also of Basement), vocalist Patrick Flynn and drummer Shawn Costa (both of Have Heart), they explore musical styles different from their other projects while bringing a familiar energetic and emotional core to the collaboration.
Pre-order Springtime and Blind now.

We are super excited that Camp Cope's sophomore album "How to Socialise & Make Friends" is officially out everywhere today! We couldn’t be more proud to work with such an important and talented group of people.
If you live in Australia, the band has announced a last minute $5 record release show tomorrow @ 2PM in Fitzroy. The band will also be playing a string of Australian dates later this month, with tickets available now. Stay tuned for US tour dates to be announced shortly!
(Camp Cope's) songs have an unrestrained gusto that will empower more women to tell their own stories... They resonate because they are so real." - The Guardian
"For some people (How to Socialise & Make Friends) will be a political, feminist record and for others this will be a record that speaks of their day-to-day lives. I think the difference there shows who this music is really for." - Gold Flake Paint

It’s been years since Young Statues’ last release, and it’s safe to say plenty has changed. The band’s 2014 sophomore release The Flatlands Are Your Friend took the band’s sound into the somber territory tread before by bands like the National, and before that, their self titled debut & follow-up EP Age Isn’t Ours offered varied moments of genre-defining musicianship. On the new 7” & digital EP Amarillo, the band’s refreshingly upbeat blend of indie-pop and alt-country is elevated to new heights by stellar production and musicianship. The wailing of the harmonica leads the bridge in “Somebody Else” and the perfectly filling harmonies on the b-side “Dive” are just two of the many highlights offered up on the band’s latest.

American Pleasure Club A Whole Fucking Lifetime of This is out now. Being heralded as Sam Ray's best work of his extremely prolific career, A Whole Fucking Lifetime of This touches on almost all aspects of his prior work under different names, but never before has it been as concise and impactful as it is here. You can stream and purchase the album on Bandcamp for $5, or order a physical vinyl, cassette, or CD copy from our webstore.
This is Sam Ray's best album as Teen Suicide or Julia Brown or Ricky Eat Acid or anything else, and it's the best album of the young year so far by some distance... It's further evidence that Ray has a rare gift—present in his ambient work too—for making life's ugly moments beautiful and its beautiful moments limitless. - Noisey
"A Whole Fucking Lifetime Of This" is one of the absolute best albums of this young year so far, one you should hear as soon as possible. - Stereogum
Grab a copy of A Whole Fucking Lifetime of This on Bandcamp for $5.
In case you missed it in December, American Pleasure Club released an 8 song mini album "I Blew On a Dandelion and the Whole World Disappeared" on Joy Void. Cassettes of the album were 'made to order' but we have 20 copies left which are available as an LP/CS package with the new album for only $24.
The band will be touring the US in April with support from Special Explosion. Tickets are on sale now at www.cherryeatingcontest.com
