Puddle Splasher Announce New Album /// Separate States Out July 8th

We're pleased to announce Puddle Splasher's debut album, Separate States, due out on July 8th. Pre-Orders are available now for CD and Cassette at http://bit.ly/SeparateStates.

Often, pop music conjures images of songs so straight and crisp, so under control, that it cannot be classified otherwise. That’s why it’s so rare when wild, reckless music is considered “pop” no matter how memorable the melody, and perhaps why dubbing Puddle Splasher’s first full-length a “rock” record seems insufficient. Indeed, Separate States feels like a proper pop record, with melodies that loop lazily around the listener—that is, until the buzzing chords and plodding drums complicate the designation. This division is illustrated nicely in opener “Summer Sigh,” as well as on “Decent Thoughts,” a song whose clean, electric chords mimic an acoustic’s sticky jingle—and whose choruses smolder with almost aggressively fuzzy guitars. In fact, for every murky, stomping monster (like “Not a Word,” on which singer and guitarist Andy Altadonna howls the lyrics like a lonely wolf), lighter tracks speckle the record, like the breezy “No Leaves,” with its airy organ and tempo, or the sun-streaked “I’m Hurting Me.” The songs on Separate States seem to display two distinct concepts at once: Rock music that’s thick and rich, and pop music so light and simple, so accessible, that its weight seems somehow weightless. And, perhaps, it’s this themes that reveals the most meaningful secret to Puddle Splasher’s sound: That which appears separated is always closer than it seems. It’s why rock music can never be pop, and why the best rock music can be nothing but.

Welcome Apologies, I Have None /// New Album Out This Summer

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Thrilled to welcome our new friends to the family - Apologies, I Have None. We'll release their new record this summer with the help of our friends at Holy Roar in the UK and Uncle M in Europe.

Apologies, I Have None have no specific message to convey, no agenda, and no story to speak of. Instead, the London, UK based post-punk four-piece explores the tolls of declining mental health on relationships and the human experience as a whole. Combining a grim outlook with layers of both rich imagery and brutally simplistic reality, Apologies, I Have None’s music paints a beautiful, harrowing picture of a misunderstood and too-often ignored struggle faced by so many in the modern world.

Apologies, I Have None released their debut full-length, London, in 2012 and have been hard at work ever since. Choosing to spend much of their time off the road at guitarist Simon Small’s recording studio, the group has been able to stay prolific without compromising quality. They released Black Everything in 2014 and a split with Luca Brasi in 2016.

Toeing the line between post-punk and melodic hardcore, Apologies, I Have None will please fans of The Gaslight Anthem, Against Me, Balance & Composure, and The Menzingers.
