Black Wine - Yell Boss out August 12th!

Written by Don Giovanni on 07/11/2014 12:04pm

Black Wine is releasing their fourth studio album, Yell Boss on August 12th and you can pre-order it now!

Here is what Mike Faloon has to say about it:
Black Wine is a punk rock trio from New Brunswick, New Jersey.  
Black Wine unleash a punk/rock/pop sound that’s perfectly suited for banging and stomping with wild abandon.  Or contemplating a Swedish existentialist novel.   
Black Wine is the supergroup Kim Deal and Bob Mould and Gene Hackman would form. 
The band’s line up consists of Jeff Schroeck on guitar, J Nixon on bass, Miranda Taylor on drums.  They come from a long line of amazing Jersey bands including the Ergs!, Full of Fancy, and Hunchback.  They draw on each of those bands.  They sound like none of them.  From the start the trio has forged ahead, always evolving, always engaging. 
Since forming in 2009, Black Wine has released four albums and a number of singles.  Their latest release is Yell Boss (Don Giovanni.)  The title comes from an episode of comedian Paul F. Tompkins’ podcast.  The ten songs were recorded by Brian Buccellato at Volume IV in New Brunswick.
 All three members of Black Wine write.  All three sing.  They’re not led by one band member or another.  They work as a whole.  They practice a functional collectivism that would make political activists envious.  Though you’ll never hear Black Wine amble on about their “process.”  They’re too humble.  They steer clear of the ego driven nonsense that sinks so many bands. 
Black Wine is a punk band in the wide sense.  They’re critical thinkers who dig aggressive sounds.  They appreciate a range of music but they are beholden to no specific genre.  “No core” is their approach.  Spend any of amount of time with their records and you’ll hear the approach of the best SST and Sub Pop bands.  You’ll hear shards of Dinosaur Jr., the Meat Puppets, or the Screaming Trees.  You’ll hear those influences—and more—but you’ll look past them in short order.  Black Wine uses the rearview mirror but they’re dedicated to moving on. 
With Yell Boss Black Wine have made another start-to-finish gem.  Yell Boss is dense with walls of towering guitars and a rhythm section that can rattle skyscrapers.  And big hooks too.  Yell Boss has a sound that would pop off the radio, and it’s all Black Wine.  No auto tuning.  No pitch shifting. 
 Listen to the song "Rime" from Yell Boss here:

Marissa Paternoster lithograph print

Written by Don Giovanni on 06/16/2014 12:18pm

Those familiar with the label are surely familiar with Marissa Paternoster who has done art for many of our bands including her own band Screaming Females and has also released an art book through the label. 

She recently launched her own website, and has started selling her own art directly. This signed and numbered lithograph is the first piece she is selling and it is incredible. We agreed to help her sell the prints through our site. 

They are a bit expensive, but are also really cheap for what you are getting. These fine art prints are HUGE hand printed lithographs on fine paper suitable for framing and collecting. 

The 100 #d editions of her book sold in less than 24 hours and I imagine these might sell fast as well, especially as many are already spoken for through her own site.

Both Zach and myself have been diehard McRackins fans for over a decade and so we couldn't be more excited to finally work with them. There are only 200 copies of this and then they are gone forever so order now! An essential part of any McRackins or Nuclear Santa Claust collection.
