If you take a look at Atlanta’s Art School Jocks, they don’t look like jocks at all. In fact, they’re quite the opposite; four lovely ladies.  The band has shared their new track “Nina,” off the forthcoming self-titled EP, out June 2nd on Father/Daughter Records.

Art School Jocks is a self-described “existential basement pop” band from Atlanta, Georgia. Ali Bragg (drums, vox), Camille Lindsley (bass, vox), Deborah Hudson (guitar, vox) and Dianna Settles (guitar, vox) began playing together in late summer/early fall 2015. Song themes vary spanning from romantic love to sociopolitical concerns, to mental wellness.

SPORTS has shared “The Washing Machine,” the second single from their sophomore album, All of Something (October 30, 2015, Father/Daughter Records). Read an interview with SPORTS frontwoman Carmen Perry on Rookie Magazine.

SPORTS is a 4-5 piece basement rock band, started in 2012 at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio. The band’s original line-up consisted of Carmen Perry on vocals and guitar, Benji Dossetter on drums, James Karlin on bass, and Catherine Dwyer on guitar. Early in the band’s formation, the group demoed some songs at their college radio station, WKCO. This recording would later birth their first album, Sunchokes, in the spring of 2014. After Catherine graduated and the others remained at Kenyon, Jack Washburn entered the band in summer of 2014 in her place on guitar and vocals. SPORTS has explored beyond the Buckeye state, playing with contemporaries including Radiator Hospital, Priests, Porches., and Pinegrove.

The band’s second album titled All of Something was recorded in Philadelphia with celebrated DIY producer and musician Kyle Gilbride (Waxahatchee, Girlpool, Swearin’). Catherine rejoined the band for the sessions, and the now quintet found a fuller sound with all hands on deck. All of Something unfurls like a flag outside a midwestern bedroom window, lifted with the air of uncertainty of those first, confusing steps of adulthood. Perry’s freckled voice, equal parts longing and hopeful, carries through with damning drums and tickling guitar solos. Each song jangles on, sometimes releasing declarative, fighting words and other times as careful as notes left on the fridge.

The 12-inch is available as three different vinyl variations: 150 on Gold Vinyl, 250 on Gold & Purple Splatter on Ultra Clear Vinyl , and 200 on Virgin Black Vinyl. Preorder from Father/DaughterBandcamp andiTunes.

Never Young’s self-titled EP will be released March 10 via Father/Daughter Records. The Bay Area band blends raw punk sounds and angular ’90s guitar music, both this EP and 2014’s Master Copy LP was recorded with Jack Shirley at The Atomic Garden (Deafheaven, Whirr, Wild Moth). The EP is limited to 500, one-sided 12” LPs with a custom etching on the reverse side.

Catch them live here:

1.29.15 – 755 After Dark, Santa Rosa, CA w/ The Down House

3.14.15 – GoodMother Gallery, Oakland, CA – S/T Record Release

4.4.15 – 1234 Go! Records, Oakland, CA w/ Pile, Crush

 

 

Los Angeles-based experimental pop group Body Parts will release their highly-anticipated debut album Fire Dream on October 29 via Father/Daughter Records. 

Body Parts mobilizes a singularly elegant experimental pop idiom to explore the contours of modern devotion and doctrines of self-improvement alongside the immoderate reverberations of remembrance. Weaving together influences as varied as the rationalist prescriptions of the self-made seeker-healer- Scientology mastermind L. Ron Hubbard, the sensual guitar-scapes of Prince, and the haunting vocals and surrealist melodrama of Kate Bush, Ryder Bach and Alina Cutrono form the group’s core. Less life coaches and more exquisite shamans, Bach and Cutrono announce attentively written modern mantras in strikingly rich and complex vocal harmony. Bach’s lyrics pit the therapeutic logic of contemporary self-help narratives against the persistence of the more ancient and uncontrollable imperative of fate.

Catch them at one of these upcoming dates:

09/20 Los Angeles, CA – Chinatown Summer Nights

09/25 Los Angeles, CA – Bootleg Theater #

10/15-19 New York, NY – CMJ
