Diarrhea Planet
Diarrhea Planet
The gravitational pull of Diarrhea Planet is strong; once you get caught in the orbit of its stadium-sized riffs and blistering solos, it’s hard to escape. The Nashville six-piece has been melting faces since its debut 7” Aloha first started making waves outside the leafy campus of Belmont University, where its members first met. What started as a dorm room dick joke between two friends bored by the music-business ladder-climbing of their classmates has grown into one of the biggest—and loudest—rock acts to come out of Nashville since their big bros and labelmates in JEFF The Brotherhood. As they toured the country behind their critically acclaimed 2013 LP I’m Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams, the likes of Billboard, Rolling Stone, SPIN, and even BuzzFeed have taken notice. Ignore them at your own peril.

On their latest LP for Infinity Cat Recordings, Turn to Gold, the Planet boys worked with Vance Powell, the Grammy-winning engineer and Jack White confidant. Powell used his expertise in recording live sound to capture some of the energy of the Diarrhea Planet live experience—they tracked the main guitar and drum tracks live, in the same room, for a record that’s both massive and frenetic. It’s easily the most sophisticated and complex music they’ve ever made, but still carries the joyous irreverence that minted thousands of RAWK fans across the country.

The band’s rhythm section, which features drummer Ian Bush (a.k.a. Tuff Gus) and bassist Mike Boyle, is the bedrock on which the foundation is built, but what makes Diarrhea Planet explode is the raw power of its four guitars. Not one note is wasted, and each ax slinger plays a role; Jordan Smith writes soaring power pop singalong hooks; Brent Toler brings a classic rock sensibility and chunky, fuzzy riffs; Emmett Miller’s wields classical training and a wizard-like five-finger pick-less technique for mind-bending, finger-tapping solos; and Evan Bird is the glue that holds them all together, capable of playing any part (or instrument) as needed.

Diarrhea Planet is a nationally touring band, playing a punishing schedule of more than 200 shows a year. But they cut their teeth in the clubs and house shows of the Nashville DIY scene, built by the likes of JEFF, Heavy Cream, Natural Child, Pujol, and shaped in legendary spaces like the old police precinct that would come to be known as Glenn Danzig’s House. As they’ve graduated from living rooms to clubs to festivals, the energy has remained constant—just ask the ladies in the mosh pit or the crowdsurfing dads you’re sure to find at any Diarrhea Planet show. They’re carrying the torch for the past, present and future of rock, and you’d be wise to take notice—everyone else sure has.
Daddy Issues
Daddy Issues
"Flirty, flighty girl pop never sounded better, even from The Runaways." - Cashbox Magazine (Canada)

Daddy Issues has mastered the art of keeping it real. The band was originally conceived as a parody Twitter account by three close friends -- Jenna Moynihan, Jenna Mitchell, and Emily Maxwell -- who decided to turn their 140-character wit into three-minute pop songs. Thus, Daddy Issues was born. Their music lies somewhere between witchy grunge and surf glam-- kind of like what the girls from The Craft would sound like if they had opted to start a band instead of Invoking The Spirit. Their lyrics center on a young every-woman who celebrates small acts of rebellion while crushing on boys with blue hair.

Daddy Issues became somewhat of an internet sensation after they caught the ear of local label Infinity Cat Recordings, who posted their song “Ugly When I Cry” on Soundcloud. 200K hits later (and only six months after learning their instruments), the band was off to Austin, TX as an official SXSW artist. Now that they’re back home, it’s finally time for Daddy Issues to get physical.

Can We Still Hang is the first tape in the 2nd annual Infinity Cat Cassette Series and a punch in the face to the patriarchy. It‘s full of grungy earworms that take equal inspiration from Veruca Salt and Taylor Swift-- like their half-bratty, half-empowered first single, “The Bruise.” Can We Still Hang pays homage to the rise of sad girl culture, without taking itself too seriously. This one goes out to all the Creepy Girls living in a Shitty World!
Acid Dad
Acid Dad
Brooklyn, NY's Acid Dad will release their debut EP, Let's Plan A Robbery, on February 26th, 2016. "Fool's Gold," the first track off the EP, premiered on Stereogum this morning, calling it "…a kaleidoscopic, rebellious tune, capturing the buoyant feeling of city shenanigans"; the song can also now be streamed and shared via Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/aciddadnyc/fools-gold-un-mastered. The EP has gotten early praise from Newsweek, which named it one of the 'Nine February Albums We Can't Wait To Listen To', and will also be released as a limited edition cassette tape via Knife Tapes, which can be pre-ordered here.

Although barely 18-months-old, Acid Dad have quickly established themselves as one of the tightest, tireless, and most energetic live bands in the Brooklyn scene, with Oh My Rockness deeming them one of the site's 'Hardest-Working Bands of 2015.' The foursome – all in their early 20s and two of whom were enrolled full-time at NYU until recently – have already released a string of infectious psych-punk singles that have earned them nods from the likes of NYLON, Village Voice, Impose, HERO, CMJ, The Deli, and more.

Let's Plan A Robbery is a magnetic four-song EP self-recorded by the band in upstate New York throughout December 2015 and January 2016. Expanding upon their previous singles, the EP ranges from the explosive drive of opener "Don't Get Taken" to the psych-sway of "Fool's Gold"; from the dynamic charge of "Digger (Gotta Get That Money)" to the languid, hypnotic closer "Shoot You Down," with guitarists Vaughn Hunt or Danny Gomez handling lead vocals on every other track. Cover artwork can be seen below.

Acid Dad – which recently sold-out a hometown show at Baby's All Right – will head out on a lengthy U.S. tour in late February, beginning with a stretch of dates with White Reaper that kick off on the 28th in Chattanooga, TN. The band's tour dates will continue through April 21st in Chicago, IL, and include an April 8th show in Los Angeles, CA. Acid Dad are also confirmed to perform on The Special Without Brett Davis in Brooklyn, NY on February 24th, as well as festivals including SXSW, the Savannah Stopover, Treefort Music Fest, and Canadian Music Week.
