Oh no, it’s Evil Twins! Mother Nature’s deadly duo of doom come out swinging with their self-titled debut on Vacant Stare Records. The post-pop Oakland 2 piece keep it simple with short songs about nothing and everything. Sure to be one of this year’s favorites, Evil Twins are that new new you’ve been waiting for…
Solar Rips is a collaboration between me and Luis Gutierrez (Religious Girls/1988). Here’s a video Mall Walk bassist, Daniel Brown made for our first single, “Pay.” The debut EP, “Not Yet” is out August 18th on Vacant Stare.
Despite the seemingly imminent end of humanity I’ve decided to release more music from fringe artists on antiquated formats. Psych instrumentalist, John McBain has a video album out 2/24 on VHS. Only 25 of these made with nearly half already gone via pre-order so get on it:
Next is a recording project I started early last year with Kyle Day of Beekeepers and our French friend, Marius Atherton. Kinda anarcho post-punk shit. Lyrics are written from the perspective of a ruthless and maniacal leader with a regime on the verge of being overthrown. I wrote this shit in late 2015 so I must be some type of punk Nostradamus. Cassette out 3/03. Pre-order now:
Christian Singles is the name of my new (solo?) project. Here’s a group of songs I wrote and recorded over the last year called, “Untitled.” Mostly sad, lo-fi bedroom pop jams I’ve been too embarrassed to show anyone. All proceeds will be donated directly to the Gray Area Foundation’s Relief Fund for the Victims of the Ghost Ship Fire. FFO: GBV, bad drumming, good causes, etc. Sounds best through a cassette adapter into the stereo of a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 Van. Special thanks to Duane M. Ramos who volunteered to master my shitty recordings and Samuelito Cruz for contributing the art work.
Dick Stusso’s debut, “Nashville Dreams/Sings The Blues” is now available, for the first time on limited edition 12″ vinyl. If you’re in the continental US, order via bandcamp: https://vacantstarerecords.bandcamp.com/album/nashville-dreams-sings-the-blues
