Seattle’s Wimps (Rachel Ratner, Matt Nyce, and David Ramm) are back with their third album, Garbage People, out July 13th on LP, cassette, CD, and MP3! Known all over as one of the premiere “plenty of nonsense” guitar/bass/drum groups, Garbage People finds Wimps taking a sonic leap forward (there’s saxophone, keyboard, and juuuust enough cowbell) and lyrically (subject matter ranges from gender pay inequality, decline of bee populations as a result of climate change, insomnia, and wanting to steal a pizza ... but only if it’s cheese!) On Garbage People, Wimps have successfully filtered the best parts of 70’s Rough Trade, the International Pop Underground 7” series, Devo, The B-52s, the Breeders, etc. into a unique and timeless sound that appeals to playlist streaming teens AND adults who own over 500 records.
Bacchae, pronounced "BOCK-eye", are a Washington, D.C band formed in 2016. Their songs can be described as post-punk, synth rock and heavy pop. At different times they've been compared to the B-52's, Black Sabbath, and Bikini Kill. But at their core, according to Washington City Paper, "Bacchae is an unapologetic, in-your-face punk band" who will melt your face with their high-energy jams.
