British mag Supersweet says "The musical vehicle of multi-instrumental New York songwriter Lindsay Powell, Cake Bake Betty's music is an exercise in both the beautiful and the bizarre. Inspired predominantly by old mariner songs, folk classics and blues standards amongst many other influences, the tracks have an off-kilter appeal and energy which most artists would struggle to replicate."
Lindsay now plays in Festival and Chicago based GA'AN.
It is no coincidence that this cassette will fit in a stocking. Christmas stocking, girlfriends stocking, guy who is stocking you - running out of ideas here. Well anyway we have 50 and it's the cassette version of this:
"Its bouncy guitars are underpinned by some thunderous bass -- think the Romantics,
taken on a desert rock acid trip with Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme." – Spin
"It's hard to say who was having more fun during Diarrhea Planet's set—the band or
their audience....Diarrhea Planet was the only band of the day to get an encore, thanks to
their utter devotion to keeping the crowd enthralled." - Village Voice
"..this grungey Nashville sextet is churning out full-tilt, pit-soaked, garage party rock
and roll. Frontman Hodan Dickie’s vocals sounding like a burlier Joey Ramone with a
mouthful of novocaine, only adds to the awesomeness. That and the fact that they sound
like their having more fun than the rest of us." - My Old Kentucky Blog
“Loose Jewels is exactly what you would expect to hear on a Diarrhea Planet album.
It’s 19 minutes and 15 seconds of loud-as-hell anthems to drinking beer and skating with
your friends…The greatest practical joke Diarrhea Planet has ever played is naming
themselves something so reprehensibly stupid while being so ridiculously talented.” –
“Diarrhea Planet is a refreshing blast of nasty beautiful scuzz in a world of where hi-fi is
the new lo-fi. We are all the better for their presence in our lives.” - Impose
A lot of people out there have asked if there would be a CD version of "Danny". Your wish is our command. The critically acclaimed debut album is now on CD. Now we wish you'd order one. Your turn!
“Heavy Cream play a set of youthful Stooges-meets-the-Runaways-style dirty proto-punk that recalls the grit of everything that made 1979 an awesome year” (Creative Loafing) “Man, we will never get tired of these babies. I mean, do we really need to write a review of their show? Fine. It ruled. They rocked. So primal. We love them. Go see them. Blah blah blah blah blah…. Seriously, Heavy Cream, you are the apple of Nashville’s eye.” (Nashville’s Dead) Nashville’s Heavy Cream plays aggressive, catchy punk anchored by an intense frontwoman who looks like Mia Farrow in Rosemary’s Baby, but wails like Glenn Danzig on Walk Among Us. It’s awesome. (Little Advances)
Been waiting for that special new CD that will change everything? Well, here it is. Super Treatment! The new album from Heavy Cream. Just when you were beginning to think the future of underground music belonged to MicroKorgs and looped nonsense, Nashville’s Heavy Cream are back with a new album to remind you that the two and a half minute rock and roll blast is alive and well.
The new album (produced by Ty Segall and recorded by Eric Bauer in San Francisco) doesn’t have a song longer than three minutes, but every track on Super Treatment packs the garage punk punch Heavy Cream created on 2010’s Danny and then some.
With Tiffany Minton now on drums, and guest bass player Seth Sutton, Super Treatment was given the Segall Treatment with songs like ’79 and Prison Shanks clear examples of the bands decision to soak their songs in distortion and fuzz.
Woah! We found some more of the limited edition EP CD "Hypnotic Knights" (with a K)! Now we know you already bought the whole album on vinyl or CD, but you might have missed this limited edition EP, which includes the hits "Sixpack", "Mystic Portal II", "Hypnotic Mind", and "Leave Me Out". So if you got left out and wanna keep your JtB collection complete, pick up a copy before they're gone for good. These CD's do not include the download card for the whole album (because you've already got it, right?), so we can offer them at a very low price of just 3 bucks (5 bucks foreign).Okay then!
Now available on CD! "We Are The Champions", where JEFF The Brotherhood "back up the balls of this album title", according to David Fricke in Rolling Stone
"Jeff the Brotherhood’s style-sampling punk can be viewed in several ways: as sharpened, gutted psychedelic-rock jams, or as reverb-soaked pop meditations with some blues shuffled in. Whatever you call it, it’s compelling, face-melting stuff on the duo's latest, We Are the Champions. Also on the bill are Danish punk revivalists Iceage." says Time Out New York.
"Call them old-fashioned, but JTB knows how to rock. They just don’t make bands like JEFF the Brotherhood anymore. Or, rather, bands don’t make themselves the way these guys did anymore. In an age when groups are signed and hyped off demos three practices into their careers and dismissed by the time their first album is out, this Nashville psych-punk duo, brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall, self-released five records of Southern-fried psychedelic riff punk over the span of six years before finally feeling worthy of sharing itself with the rest of the world. Then, it hit the asphalt. Hard." (Willmette Week)
One of the best reviewed albums of 2012, and for good reason. It's JEFF The Brotherhood. Here's the CD version complete with 100% plastic jewel case! Rolling Stone gave it 4 1/2 out of 5 stars! (The album, not the jewel case) The brothers Orrall have tightened up their sound into something thicker and more cohesive while stepping further away from the looser, more psychedelic sound of Heavy Days, and in the process have stumbled into a sound that beautifully captures the aimless days of summertime. But really, that's to be expected from an album that opens with the line, "I want a place where I can smoke meats, where I can drink and swim in the creek." That feeling carries on into "Sixpack," which will immediately speak to anyone who has ever been to a way-too-packed, small-town house party. Hypnotic Nights delivers all of the brilliant power pop worship that we've come to love from JEFF the Brotherhood, and if the album isn't able to kick off your summer, nothing will.
Been waiting for the CD version? Well here it is, including the bonus track "Pleasure Centre". Here's what they're saying about HEAVY DAYS:
Spin Magazine December issue: #1 on list of Songs You Must Hear Now! "Post-adolescent bros dig into the sweet spot between punk and hard rock".
The new champions of good time, feel good grungy rock, complete with industrial guitar distortion and tightly packed Barracudas percussion. Jeff The Brotherhood are squeezing out the remaining warmth from this years final months, heroically preserving the summer. (Mojophenia)
Noisy, psychedelic, grungy, even ever-so-slightly post-punk, JEFF feels like a stroll through the best record collection ever (Whispers of Wire, Sonic Youth, Devo, Talking Heads, and Chisel come to mind). (Punk News)
The infectious "Bone Jam" rides a falsetto chorus like a ray of turbocharged sunshine through chugging guitar, while the "The Tropics" puts the "power" back in power ballad. (Nashville Scene)
Yes, Monkey Bowl is back with the follow-up album to the brilliant debut "Plastic 350". Featuring "Clear Channel", "Trust Me, I Work For The Government", and the soon-to-be-heard-in-a-major-motion-picture "End Title Song" (hint: it'll play when the credits roll!)....
The New Yorker says "Monkey Bowl is a cross between the Fugs and Ali G!" Entertainment Weekly says "cast your chad for Al Gore's vocal cameo on "Al Gore", an homage by Tennessee band Monkey Bowl".
If you were quick enough to grab a copy of the "BODYSWITCHERS" cassette before they sold out (there were only 100...) then you know this is one awesome release. We now offer you a cd version with new artwork, hand assembled and shrinkwrapped by our faithful interns. Enjoy!
You asked for it and we’ve brought it back, this time on CD!: “Ringo, Where Art Thou” . According to iTunes, PUJOL’s top 3 songs are “Black Rabbit”, “Too Safe” (both later re-recorded with Jack White for a Third Man 7”) and “Mission from God”. Check out the original versions right here on Ringo. Also includes the original version of “Endless Mike”- we love the new arrangement on “United States Of Being” (Saddle Creek). You’ll also hear the original “Mayday”, later re-recorded on “Nasty, Brutish and Short“ (Saddle Creek). As if that weren’t enough, Ringo includes “Strawmen In Leather”, “State Of Mind” and “Deathmask”. Act now, and you’ll also get “Typhoid Mary”! Well, you’ll get it even if you don’t act now, but why wait?
We like to have fun. That's why we're here. Infinity Cat is here because we like to introduce the world to new artists, and then see what happens. Good things happen, and that's fun. Did you know our first PUJOL release was a CD that was just given away? That's right, we just wanted everyone to know about this amazing music. Then we followed with a split cassette "Timbre Shades Of Grey", and a 7" called "2010". Well, on this CD we taken the best from all three releases and put them all in one place for your convenience and listening pleasure. From the original, very collectable first CD you've got "Black Rabbit Demo" and "P2P Demo". From "Timbre Shades of Grey", we've included "Johno!", "Jimmie Rodgers", "Jodeye", "Reader", "Over the Counter Culture", and "Cultist". And finally the three great songs (and alternate versions) of "Mission of God", "Deathmask", and the great "Point Of View". As PUJOL himself says, "I walk through the alleys of the superstore trying to follow the string of assembly back to the hand of another. How many between us? Who allows me to buy what I need?" Well folks, we allow you to buy what you need. And we think you need this new CD. And you need the new album on Saddle Creek, "United States Of Being". It's fantastic.
We'll start by letting Daniel Pujol tell you about his debut LP for Infinity Cat: “X File On Main St. stylistically focuses on Nashville and draws from my work in MEEMAW and Saigon Baby/Wizardz. It is an aesthetic and conceptual assemblage of a lot of the recording and narrative ideas I’ve experimented with since 2007, but all at once. X File is a record for and about everything around in Nashville since I moved here in 2006. Ben Todd of Nashville’s Dead, Dillon “Angel Baby” Watson of D. Watusi, and Wez Traylor of Natural Child and MEEMAW play on it. Their science keeps me honest; the truth is way, way, out there.”
PUJOL fans can download the album on iTunes HERE. But due to popular demand, we're happy to also bring it to you as a handmade CD, lovingly shrinkwrapped by our crack team of interns.
Order now and receive a FREE copy of Art Circus, with the original version of The Mattoid's cover of "Be Your Own Pet". "Let's Do The Classics" is a self-proclaimed all-time "weariest lo-fi covers album," featuring his deconstructionist takes on pop-radio staples the likes of "Eleanor Rigby," "Dancing Queen," Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" and Roxette's "It Must Have Been Love"- songs he strives to prove say little when stripped of their pop melodrama." He also takes a song from former Infinity Cat artist Art Circus, "Be Your Own Pet"- yes, the song from which the band took it's name- and transforms it from pure cuteness to pure evil. This new Mattoid masterpiece is brought to you by the good people at Thee Swan Recording Company (www.theeswan.com), the label that brought you Dave Cloud, which you should go and buy, because you will love him.
The Mattoid is a native of Helsinki, Finland named Ville Kiviniemi. On a chance visit to Nashville TN, he was spotted by Cleft Music producer, Loney John Hutchins, who recorded his first breakthrough album, "HELLO," on Cleft Music in 2004. Two EP's later, Mr. Mattoid released his spiritual masterpiece, "The Glory Holy" on Infinity Cat Records. According to The Nashville Scene, Ville is leaving Nashville for his homeland: "For the better part of the last decade, that abnormal persona — a poncho-clad, crazy-eyed, comedic ogre from Finland, belting out grunts and obscenities in broken English atop a bizarre brand of cocktail-party-anti-folk — is one that fans of Nashville's art-rock underground have come to know and love; a howling, guitar-slinging Viking they often don't know whether to laugh at, laugh with, or just plain fear. As a swan song to his tenure in the 'Ville, Kiviniemi is unleashing Let's Do the Classics. He is our hero, and we will miss him. Please take this chance to pick up his masterpiece "The Glory Holy" as well!
Finnish freak-folk-rocker THE MATTOID returns with his 2nd full length album, The Glory Holy. Recorded at John Vanderslice s Tiny Telephone studio in San Francisco by engineer Jay Pellicci (Deerhoof, Erase Erata), and finished in The Mattoid s current home base of Nashville, TN with members of Silver Jews, Clem Snide, Lambchop, and Bobby Bare Jr. s Young Criminals Starvation League.
Debut album (finally) by Wizardz a.k.a. Saigon Baby featuring Daniel Pujol (PUJOL, MEEMAW) on drums, Jake Orrall (JEFF The Brotherhood) on bass/vox, and Wez Traylor (Natural Child) on guitar/vox!! It's a concept album about having sex with robots in the future. Welcome to the Sexual Reality. Not suitable for children. Handmade CD-R digipack lovingly made by our interns just for you.
