Potty Mouth Record Release Party with Perfect Pussy, Lodro, and Tweens ☰ Powered by ADHOC.FM
Brooklyn, NY, 11211-4119
This event is all ages
Potty Mouth are Northampton, MA-based quartet Abby Weems (guitar, vocals), Ally Einbinder (bass), Phoebe Harris (lead guitar) and Victoria Mandanas (drums). Hailing from the home of Thurston Moore and Dinosaur Jr., and drawing from the fertile music community that is Western Massachusetts, Potty Mouth are all-parts smart-pop craftswomen, specializing in taut, infectious, C-86 influenced indie pop meets '77 punk perfection.
The band released their debut 12" vinyl EP, entitled Sun Damage, in July 2012 as a three-way spilt between Feeble Minds Records (Amherst, MA), Ride the Snake Records (Cambridge, MA) and Puzzle Pieces Records (Brooklyn, NY). Sun Damage garnered the attention of Pitchfork, who called the six-song EP an "an impressive, no-filler debut," as well as The Boston Globe, who named Potty Mouth one of the top five indie-rock bands to watch in 2013. In a review of a live performance by the band earlier this year, New York Times music critic Jon Caramanica called the EP "excellent."
The band has since recorded and mastered their forthcoming debut full-length album, releasing only the first single track, "Damage," to the public. Departing from the more angular shades of post-punk heard in their EP, "Damage" is marked by its significantly heavier production and melancholic hooks. Nonetheless, the track – much like the rest of the unreleased album – stays true to the confident, youthful punk aesthetic the band has cultivated for themselves.
A music video for their new single premiered earlier this year on VICE's Noisey and can be viewed here. All of Potty Mouth's previously released material can be found at their bandcamp page, with their latest news available on Tumblr.
Born in a cavernous Brooklyn warehouse in the winter of 2013, LODRO is branded with an ominous desolation. Fueled by the intricate and shadowy perspectives of Jeremy Cox, Jigmae Baer (both formerly of Royal Baths), and Lesley Hann (formerly of Friends), the trio has made their presence known through a blitzkrieg of brilliantly unsettling live shows and a small glimpse down what promises to be a deep rabbit hole of analog home recordings. The neo noir punk outfit recently announced they will release their first 7" on the newly-formed Tracer Sounds in October of 2013 - a mere nine months after their first performance.
