trends, the three best friends are focused on being happy and blissfully on the outside of all that noise.
The trio grew up together in Los Angeles and there's a shared understanding of what makes them all tick.
Together with her punk cohorts Anastasia Sanchez (vocalist/drummer, 20), guitarist Isabelle Fields (19),
and bassist Eva Chambers (19) have a clear understanding that Pinky Pinky's modus operandi is in not
overthinking their decisions. You can hear that on their debut album, 'Turkey Dinner' due on Innovative
Leisure. It follows their two prior EPs, most recently 2018's 'Hot Tears'. Their first full-length, however, is
even freer than their previous efforts. It's a patchwork quilt of garage rock and oddball indie. It's rooted in
classic bass, drums, guitar, but it's bolstered by the perspectives of a trio of LA youths writing about their
everyday observations, anxieties and passions.
For Like A Baby, his new album out October 12th on Stones Throw Records, Jerry Paper (a.k.a. Lucas Nathan) enlisted the help of Matthew Tavares of BadBadNotGood a.k.a. Matty (who co-produced the album), Weyes Blood, Mild High Club’s Alex Brettin, and vocalist Charlotte Day Wilson.
Following albums for Bayonet Records and Orange Milk, Like A Baby continues Jerry Paper’s oddball take on synthpop with a renewed sense of clarity and purpose. Nathan cites a vast pool of influences on the record, from fellow pop outliers Prefab Sprout, Todd Rundgren and Steely Dan — “a deep source of inspiration for me” — to classic R&B, Stereolab, avant-garde Brazilian artists, and 70s & 80s Japanese pop.
Katherine Paul is Black Belt Eagle Scout, and after releasing an EP in 2014 Paul has wrapped up the band’s first full-length. Recorded in the middle of winter near her hometown in Northwest Washington, the landscape’s eerie beauty and Paul’s connection to it are palpable on Mother of My Children. Stemming from this place, the album traces the full spectrum of confronting buried feelings and the loss of what life was supposed to look like.
Mother of My Children is a life chapter gently preserved, and the access listeners have to such vulnerability feels special and generous. We are left wanting more, and all signs point to Black Belt Eagle Scout just getting started.
This time would go on to inspire the material that now comprises Parrot Dream’s debut full-length, Light Goes. Signing to Good Eye Records, the LP will see release digitally and on vinyl, including a limited Blood Red color run, on August 24th, 2018.
The album was written over a span of two years and touches on themes of connection, love, memories and clarity. The driving title track immediately pulls you into the lush world of Light Goes as Appel’s hypnotic synths and wistful vocals meet Guerrero’s incendiary guitars sparking a fire that burns throughout the LP. Oscillating between uplifting and elegiac, Parrot Dream draw you in to wade in deep, kaleidoscopic pools of sound as they build up towering, crystalline crescendos.
