“A wealth of infectious songs that are both sharply observed and sharply written” –Pitchfork
“The band has created an intimate, largely D.I.Y. world that feels fresh and vital” –The New York Times
Kevin Devine will be touring on his 2016 release Instigator, out now on Procrastinate! Music Traitors. Instigator was Devine’s 9th studio record and his most critically acclaimed to date. The record peaked at #20 on Billboard’s Alternative Album charts, and Noisey named it #45 on their Top 100 Albums of 2016 calling it a “relentless assault of catchy hooks” as well as “timely and important.”
Sorority Noise will release their highly anticipated follow up to their break out album Joy, Departed on Triple Crown Records this spring. Joy, Departed gained notoriety for speaking out against the trend of romanticizing sadness, instead committing to an open and real depiction of mental illness. Pitchfork called the album “sophisticated, confident, well-produced and also more vertiginous in all aspects.”
The Obsessives recently announced the release of their sophomore record The Obsessives, coming out on Lame-O Records on March 17th. The album volleys between the expressive texture of emo bands like Braid and the bouncy indie of bands like The Pixies and Violent Femmes.
