"The Lemons (Chicago, IL)
he Lemons’ stripped-down ’60s flower pop lands somewhere between quirky fun and damn near cultish. Their debut, Hello, We’re The Lemons, which was recently reissued on Gnar Tapes, marries lo-fi vibes with candy-coated pop for some sweet but laid-back fun. Cuts like “Chubby Checker” and “Jelly Bean” are a time-warp to the height of tie-dye and acid trips of the most pleasurable nature.
Faux Ferocious is a Nashville based rock and roll quartet that combines blistering punk-rock simplicity, Spector-worthy hooks, and a whatever-it-takes production approach to create songs that are short, infectious, and razor sharp. Faux Ferocious creates a infectious brand of mock-punk both on stage and in the studio. The disheveled anarchy of their live shows leaves an immediate impression as a blink-and-it's-over run of songs form perfectly mismatched waves of precision and drunken confusion.
The first incarnation of “Lost in the Party: The Best of King Bitch” was a batch of 30 hand-dubbed cassettes that were given away for free at a house show in Nashville, TN. The tapes were gone within 30 seconds of the band finishing their set! If you lost out, well, you just lost out, bud. But when the folks at Infinity Cat realized they still hadn’t taken “Lost in the Party” out of their tape decks, they figured it was time to introduce King Bitch to the masses.
