Pre-order Upset's new album "She's Gone"

Written by Don Giovanni on 10/16/2013 4:50pm

The new Upset record, She's Gone, is now up for pre-order in our store.  The record comes out October 29th.  Check out the music video for "You and I" below:
For the past few years, Ali Koehler has been best known as the drummer of the pop group Best Coast and the noisy girl punk trio Vivian Girls. After her departure from Best Coast, Koehler decided to step up from behind the kit to front a band of her own, embracing her melodic punk-spirited songwriting impulses with Upset. Joined by Patty Schemel (of Hole) on drums and Jennifer Prince (of La Sera) on lead guitar and vocals, Upset will release its massively hooky debut record, She’s Gone, this fall.

The new Worriers record, Cruel Optimist, is now up for pre-order in our store.  The record comes out October 29th.  Listen to two songs below:
Worriers was formed in 2008 with Lauren Denitzio of the Measure [sa], Mike Catalano of Hunchback and Justin Sullivan of Ringers/Babies. Worriers remains Lauren's primary band with friends Jonathan Johansen, Mikey Erg, Rachel Rubino, Tim Burke, and Lou Hanman, among others. No Idea released the first 7", "Past Lives" in 2011. Lauren describes the songs on this record as "inspired by or reference artists and writers that have had a big impact on the way [she] thinks about the world, especially in terms of gender, and assumptions about sexuality and the way we structure our lives."
