Welcome Henrietta to the Family /// Debut LP Out This Summer



We're very excited to announce the addition of Orlando, FL Henrietta to our family and release the band's debut LP, The Trick Is Not Minding. Set for an August release, the LP will be available for pre-order later in late June. Music coming very soon!

Some bands slap themselves together in a reckless summer night; constructed with excitement and spontaneity and the sort of sweat that drips in cluttered basements, they are often appreciated more for their abandon than their magnitude. But then there are bands like Orlando, FL's Henrietta, who somehow manage to bottle the sparkle of their inception and nurture it into something that burns both brighter and longer—an inferno compared to a firecracker. Henrietta is powerful because they chose to perfect their art, to kindle a forceful fire, rather than light the fuse and smile at the bang it made. Six years in the making, The Trick Is Not Minding is well worth the wait.

Kite Party - Come On Wandering LP Out May 6th / Stream New Track



Following their 2011 debut, Baseball Season, Kite Party will release their long awaited sophomore album Come On Wondering on May 6th via Animal Style Records. Today, Stereogum are sharing the LP’s first single, “Halflife,” calling it, “A warm introduction to the Philly band’s dreamy, wondrous music, but it’s also tinged with melodies and vocal inflections that cut with an intense melancholy. It’s sparklingly pretty music, acting like an inhibitor to the wounded sentiments just below the surface.”

Stream Halflife at Stereogum

Kite Party vocalist/guitarist Russell Edling elaborated on “Halflife” sharing, "Why does this feel off?" is a sentiment that pops up in several places throughout Come on Wandering. The song Halflife focuses on how "off" you can feel when you are a 20-something and you still feel like you're sucking your thumb.”

The Philadelphia based quintet has come a long way in the three years since their debut, blending new sounds and ideas into the radiant Come On Wandering at every turn. The record swirls with nuanced indie rock, warm and shimmering shoegaze, delicate brushes with dream pop, and subtle hints of a youth spent listening to punk.

Come On Wandering will be pressed in a variety of vinyl options. Pre-orders are now available. Click here to pre-order
