Infinity Cat Recordings recently announced year two of their cassette series with a Daddy Issues cassette, now their back with the second entry of the season!  Limited to 300 colored cassettes, Faux Ferocious will release their self titled cassette on September 4 as part of the second annual Infinity Cat Cassette Series, curated by Casey Weissbuch (see Nashville Cream news debut).

Faux Ferocious is a Nashville-based rock and roll quartet that combines blistering punk-rock simplicity, Spector-worthy hooks, and a whatever-it-takes production approach to create songs that are short, infectious, and razor sharp. With vocal and guitar duties split between dueling frontmen Jonathan Phillips and Terry Kane, and a rhythm section held down by bassist Dylan Palmer and drummer Reid Cummings, Faux Ferocious creates a infectious brand of mock-punk both on stage and in the studio.

Faux Ferocious have been recording and playing shows around the United States for the last few years. Their self-titled cassette marks their first physical release on a label and chronicles the disheveled anarchy that they have been perfecting in that time. It’s a collection of inspiring fuzz-driven alt-pop songs that show kinship with bands like Wavves, Ty Segall, and Natural Child while expertly walking the tightrope between noise and beauty.

Infinity Cat Recordings has announced year two of their cassette series and opened up subscriptions!  This is the YEAR-LONG subscription to their new Infinity Cat Cassette Series, curated by Casey Weissbuch. Starting June 30, they’ll send you six cassettes by their favorite up-and-coming bands so you can say you knew ’em when. The subscription is the only way to guarantee that you’ll never miss out. PLUS, you’ll also get a secret bonus item from each band. (Last year, people got postcards with butts on ’em, holographic posters, even rubber duckies!) PLUS, they’re also gonna throw in a subscriber-only limited-edition cassette of JEFF The Brotherhood’s Wasted On The Dream with your first tape.

What’s your first tape, you ask? The 2015 Infinity Cat Cassette Series is kicking off with… drumroll, please… DADDY ISSUES! Yeah, you’ve probably noticed Infinity Cat’s Daddy Issues obsession in the past couple months but in case you haven’t, here’s the scoop. Daddy Issues was originally conceived as a parody Twitter account by three close friends — Jenna, Jenna, and Emily — who decided to turn their 140-character wit into three-minute pop songs. They’re somewhere between witchy grunge and surf glam, basically what the girls from The Craft would sound like if they had opted to start a band instead of Invoking The Spirit. The Nashville band’s cassette Can We Still Hang is full of grungy earworms that take equal inspiration from Veruca Salt and Taylor Swift, paying homage to the rise of sad girl culture without taking itself too seriously. This one goes out to all the Creepy Girls living in a Shitty World!!  Here’s a song to get a taste (see the Wild debut)…
