Screaming Females' seven years as a band, four full-length albums and 700 globe-spanning live shows has made them difficult to miss. Through it all, the New Brunswick, New Jersey trio have continued to exude a frenetic energy which is built upon the zeitgeist of America's punk and indie underground yet has always remained forward-looking. Fittingly, for Screaming Females' 5th album Ugly, the band enlisted legendary recording engineer Steve Albini, famed for his unique ability to capture the ferociousness of a live performance while delivering gorgeous sonic clarity. The album's 14 tracks reaffirm the touchstones of the band; they can still shred and front-woman Marissa Paternoster can still unleash a powerful howl. But it doesn't end there. The album ushers in new explorations for the band, a truly remarkable feat considering their already prolific output. Ugly has the perfect combination of raw energy and honed musicianship that produces the type of rock & roll which is still a force to be reckoned with.
We're a band from Los Angeles, CA. Our debut record 'She's Gone' will be released on Don Giovanni Records on October 29th, 2013.
UPSET is: Ali Koehler (guitar, lead vocals), Jennifer Prince (lead guitar, vocals), Patty Schemel (drums), and Katy Goodman (bass).
Benny The Jet Rodriguez
estimony by Baby J (Stoned At Heart/Can of Beans):
Keepin the San Pedro scene poppin is Benny The Jet Rodriguez! They emerged way back in the summer of 2012 originally a two piece featuring a studdly queer babe, L. Freeman, and the handsome drummer with the chops, Joey Centofanti.
BTJR has become a trifecta with the addition of Todd C.(FYP/Toys That Kill) on the keys. Together they are making magic happen, and smoking tons of weed while doing it. BTJR songs are written by a sweet baby genius! Songs you wish you wrote with harmonious keyboard melodies on top of righteous dirty chord progressions, backed by crashy head bobbin' drums and vocal chorus’ that are guaranteed to get stuck in your head.
BTJR= Straight up, pumped up, high side of the lo-fi, feel good, heart felt, innovative pop punk with some grrl power sprinkled on top. New, fresh, young, fun, rockin and uh rollin.
