  • GLIDE MAGAZINE PREMIERES NEW SONG FROM PEZZETTINO

    Glide Magazine premiered the new track from Racine, WI-raised and Oakland, CA-based singer-songwriter Pezzettino called “How To.”

    Glide calls the song “a delicate folk-rooted composition that combines the humility of Big Thief and the musical curiosity of Regina Spektor. Pezzettino has created a song of enduring aspiration, where daily struggle and hope combine for a musical buildup that is indie folk at its most haunting.”

  • THE BIG TAKEOVER PREMIERE NEW SONG FROM MATT SHAPIRO

    The Big Takeover premiered the new track from Montreal-raised and NYC-based singer-songwriter Matt Shapiro called “Rockaway Girl.”

    The Big Takeover says of the track “It’s an up-tempo strummer and hummer that dashes off the starting line of the track and quickly introduces the distorted synth-organs that are one of the record’s sonic hallmarks. It’s an exuberant, lo-fi affair with organs grinding alongside pulsing bass and drums and Shapiro’s reverb-drenched vocals floating overtop.”

  • Girl In A Coma Emerge With New Album

    Girl In A Coma - New Album and TourSan Antonio’s GIRL IN A COMA have left a permanent tattoo on the hearts of music lovers with their piercing songs and nuclear performances. They’ve blazed a singular trail since Nina Diaz joined the band at age 13 and have found champions and comrades along the way including Joan Jett who signed them, MorrisseySiaTegan and SaraThe Pogues and Amanda Palmer who have hand selected them for tours. In addition, Robert Rodriguez asked them to compose one of the key songs for his film Machete last year. 


    All the while, they have been building one of the most impassioned and diverse fan bases in music. GIRL IN A COMA are that rare feral band,  unaffected by trends,  that has managed to stay wild and thrill us at every turn. Exits & All the Rest, their 4th album out November 1 (USA), November 4th (Aus) on Blackheart Records, is the most heart-stopping turn yet.

    From sharing stages with their heroes to experiencing Arizona’s controversial laws firsthand, the album was born in an especially intense period for the band. The Girls headed a few miles north to Austin and recorded with producer Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Trail of Dead). It was the band’s first time working on analog tape and all the basic tracks were laid down live. The recording process seemed to help the band capture some of the raw energy and power that they are known for in their live shows.
    At the same time, the album showcases the depth and maturity of Girl in a Coma‘s songwriting. Album opener “Adjust” is a tale of persecution and a sonic mindfield. Nina Diaz’s voice turns from a lament to a growl in a split second while the thundering combination of Phanie Diaz’s drums and Jennifer Alva’s bass rattle your ribcage. “One Eyed Fool” is a fearless and bare declaration of the universal need to be loved. “Cemetery Baby” underscores the bands ability to seduce you with melody no matter how tragic the message. “Hope” is a pogo ready punk assault that speaks to the Arizona immigration dispute while daring you to stay still. 

    Lead single, “Smart” showcases GIAC’s own special recipe for a melodic pop song. The stomping rhythm of future GIAC anthem “Control” lays a foundation for Nina’s voice to build empires of heartbreak on. The album closes with the dramatic build of “Sly” and raw emotion of “Mother’s Lullaby.” The stamp San Antonio’s music scene has left on the band is all over the album and it’s stabs of punk,  tejano, rockabilly, classic rock and roll, rancheras, indie rock and ballads all contributing to a sound that can only be described as Girl in a Coma.
    AOL Spinner: “One of rock ‘n’ roll’s best-kept secrets… and their latest album ‘Exits & All the Rest’ may just get them to the next level.”, 
    NPR Alt.Latino: “This album is a step forward for them. The song writing is more complex, the instrumentation is more complex, the arrangements are more complex. And the voice just keeps getting better and better.”
