A STATEMENT ON FREAKIN WEEKEND FROM DADDY ISSUES March 10 2017, 0 Comments

"A statement on Freakin Weekend:

In light of the controversies surrounding this year's Freakin Weekend, after much deliberation, we have decided to move forward with our scheduled performance on Saturday night. This was not a decision we made easily, but as the only women on Saturday's bill, we think we can do more good for the Nashville scene by performing, sharing our songs with the community and hopefully serving as a reminder of the inexhaustible power of women than we can by not performing at all. We will be donating all earnings from our performance to RAINN, an amazing resource for survivors of sexual assault and abuse. www.rainn.org

Hope to see some of you there."

CHICAGO READER SEZ YOU OUGHTA CHECK OUT DEHD! March 02 2017, 0 Comments


....And you know what? THEY ARE RIGHT!

The Chicago Reader previewed Dehd's release show at The Empty Bottle next Thursday with a nice lil write up. They said "while on their 2016 self-titled album (Maximum Pelt/Fire Talk) Dehd dole out minimal, droning melodies, the easygoing simplicity of their beguiling material belying an expert sense of atmosphere, their grasp of the world around them is more evident on the Infinity Cat cassette, Fire of Love. On it Dehd dive into watery shoegaze and chilly postpunk that feels like it blew in from northern England." But you don't have to go all the way to northern England to check out Dehd! You can just go to Chicago! Get your tickets to their show with Bunny and Coffin Ships HERE and preorder Fire Of Love before its March 10th release date HERE.

HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOLY HECK, ARE WE EXCITED TO FINALLY ANNOUNCE YOUR NEW FAVORITE ALBUM FROM YOUR ALWAYS FAVORITE GRUNGE-POPPERS..... DEEP DREAM BY DADDY ISSUES, OUT MAY 19TH.

Produced by JEFF bro Jake Orrall (Colleen Green, Heavy Cream), Deep Dream combines all the best parts of 80s alternative, 90s grunge, and 00s pop and tackles the difficulties of friendship, heartbreak, mental health, sexual assault and a number of other issues that come with the package of youth in the modern world. You can get yr first taste of it thanks to The Fader, who's premiering their first single "In Your Head" TODAY! They called it "a killer grunge kiss-off to terrible exes everywhere" and trust us, you're gonna wanna play this one loud and you're gonna wanna play it on repeat. Listen HERE or below!

"In Your Head" starts with the words we've always wanted to say to our shitty exes: "Fuck You Forever." And those are also the words printed on the koozies that you'll get if you preorder their v special preorder bundle. When we say special, we mean special. They come with Deep Dream on limited edition translucent gold vinyl, a FUCK YOU FOREVER koozie, and a satin pouch filled with glow in the dark stars that you can put on yr ceiling to stare at while you slip into a deep dream. Now, we only have 100 of these babies, so preorder now because they're gonna go quick! SOLD OUT. But we have released the rest of the gold vinyl- limited to 300 so don't snooze or you WILL lose!

SNUGGLE UP TO DEHD'S NEW SINGLE & PREORDER "FIRE OF LOVE"!! February 28 2017, 0 Comments

Valentine's Day might be over but it's always a good time to make a mix for yr crush! And we have the perfect song for you: "Holding" by Dehd, premiering today on Post-Trash! They wrote "built on minimal post-punk rhythms and garage pop jangle, the song would be obnoxiously cute if it didn't sound a bit sinister, thanks in no small part to the deep bleeding bass line and haunting reverb. Balla's vocals are exaggerated and unfurled (in a way that reminds me of The B-52s) as he asks "do you understand, I just want to hold your hand" over a bed of angular pop guitars and sparse drums. It's a moment of warm feelings and adorable sentiments (as is the repeated "holding" mantra) amid a record that spends the majority of its run time in the post-punk depths." Awww! Jump over to Post-Trash for the exclusive premiere!

Fire Of Love is out March 10 but you can preorder a tape for you & yr #1 babe right HERE! It's on a lovely shade of pale pink cassette, limited to 350 copies as part of our Infinity Cat Cassette Series, and will ship to arrive on your doorstep by March 10. ICCS subscribers, your tapes and bonus items will be on the way shortly!


FREAKIN WEEKEND VIII: THE FINAL FREAK February 20 2017, 0 Comments

The fine folks at NASHVILLE'S DEAD announced Freakin Weekend VIII today, our most favorite weekend out of the whole dang year! It's a little bittersweet cuz this is gonna be the very last one. Can't believe it's been going on for eight years now, some of our favorite shows have been FW sets and some of our favorite friendships are once we've made at FW. Gonna be sad to see it go.
But the good news is Freakin Weekend's goin out with a bang! Our v own Diarrhea Planet, Daddy Issues, AND Music Band are playing, along with buddies PUJOL, Ranch Ghost, and more.

BIG THANK YOU AS ALWAYS TO NASHVILLE'S DEAD FOR PUTTING THIS WHOLE THING TOGETHER, WE LOVE YOU

INTRODUCING... DEHD February 08 2017, 0 Comments

These dudes ain't dead- but they are DEHD! The next band in our Infinity Cat Cassette Series! That's right, we are super excited to announce Fire Of Love, the new EP from Chicago post-punks Dehd, out in March. Get yr First Listen of the title track thanks to GoldFlakePaint. They said "Dehd’s new track “Fire Of Love” doesn’t find itself balanced between the two polar opposites of light and dark, it positively leaps head first in to each realm in turn, twisting through so many gleaming peaks and shadowy troughs all in under three-and-a-half minutes. The title track to the band forthcoming cassette, which is released via Infinity Cat’s exceedingly good tape series, “Fire Of Love” finds the Chicago trio in spectacularly moody form, and it makes for an altogether resounding journey."
Read the rest of their write up and LISTEN UP HERE! We're super stoked about this EP, which hits all the highs and lows of that fickle thing called love! There's a little bit of post-punk, a little bit of garage rock, and a whole lot to love. Fire Of Love is out March 10th on pale pink tape as part of our cassette series curated by the 1 and only Casey Weissbuch.

MORE LOVE FOR OUR FAV DUSTERS! February 06 2017, 0 Comments

 

It's Monday morning and we wish we were in Brooklyn. Why? Because YUCKY DUSTER is playing tonight at THE SILENT BARN and WE WANNA GO. But we can't, so you should go in our place and take lots of pictures and we will heart them all on Instagram and be like dang, we are v thankful for the ease with which the internet has brought distant experiences closer to home and we will smile and smile and we just won't be able to stop.

They said "'Duster’s Lament' is a catchy, indie-pop diddy that leaves you feeling content- a happy and mellow punk-rock that leaves you reaching for the repeat button." Ain't that the truth. Check out the rest of their write up here and get some that Yucky Duster tape in yr life here!

Update: OH DANG! Radio K has beamed their Weekly Release Spotlight on Duster's Lament this week! Don't forget to keep callin and tweetin yr local college radio station and tellin em you wanna get DUSTY!!!

LOOK OUT AUSTIN, IT'S ABOUT TO GET DUSTY! January 24 2017, 0 Comments

That's right, our friends in Yucky Duster are headed down to Austin as *official* SXSW artists. Fancy! That means, of course, that they're touring their way down from Brooklyn to Austin. If you've got anything they can hop on for the way down (specifically NOLA 3/14) or any unofficial shows during SXSW, please reach out to us or them. 

In other YD news, Anthony Fantano reviewed Duster's Lament on The Needledrop last weekend, calling it a "five-song set of earnest, introspective indie rock and pop" and "a little punk, a little twee." He had a lot of great things to say about the cassette and its mix of personality and introspection, giving it a "light to decent 7" (lol) out of 10. You can peep the video on his website or below!


DON'T BE A DINGUS, THERE'S A FREE ROCK N ROLL SHOW TONIGHT! January 20 2017, 0 Comments

 

 

HEY NASHVILLE! I get it, we're the It City, there's a ton of stuff to do on the weekend and many Netflix shows to binge, but I'm tellin ya, THIS IS THE VERY BEST THING YOU COULD DO THIS WEEKEND.

Honestly, in general, the very best thing you could ever do is go to a free Daddy Issues show. But we hear that they're gonna have a very special guest on the drums tonight. A special guest whose name rhymes with Schmevan Schmird. From Schmiarrhea Schmanet. Plus, you have to wonder... Will they play new songs, from their top-secret-but-soon-to-be-released album? Well, we ain't gonna tell you! You'll just have to go and see for yourself! (BTW, if you haven't read Ruse Magazine's new feature on Daddy Issues yet, check it out here.)

PLUS, our dear friends in Savoy Motel are headlining! For those of you who have been living under a rock, that's Jess and Mimi from Heavy Cream's new band. And it rules. Not to mention the rest of the lineup, not to mention that they're gonna do it all over again with another free show on Saturday. C'mon! That's a no-brainer folks!


TUNE IN ALERT: THE SPECIAL WITHOUT BRETT DAVIS January 18 2017, 0 Comments

 

If you're in the New York area, make sure to TUNE IN to MNN tonight at 11 PM EST for The Special Without Brett Davis, featuring our very own YUCKY DUSTER as the musical guests!

You can attend live by emailing thespecialwithout@gmail.com and heading to the MNN Studios around 10:45 pm, or tune yr tv sets to MNN (that's TWC 67 & 1998; RCN 85; FiOS 36). Not in New York? Don't worry! You can stream live at brettdavis.tumblr.com, or catch up later on their youtube channel.


PHOTO GALLERIES: MUSIC BAND IN NASH, JTB IN CHICAGO January 17 2017, 0 Comments

Feast yr eyeballs on THIS, folks! Nashville Cream's got a sick scene report of last weekend's benefit show featuring our very own Music Band in one of the most stacked line ups we've seen in a long time. The show went down at The East Room and benefited the Oasis Center, which provides shelter, counseling, and other programming for local at-risk teens. For the whole scoop and photos by Lance Conzett, jump over to the Cream.

While this was all going down, JTB was up in Chicago playing Tomorrow Never Knows fest. Paste Magazine was there to capture the whole thing in "neon-drenched" photos by Sarah Hess. Peep those picks HERE, and if you haven't read Paste's most recent interview with JTB, check that out HERE.


THEY'RE YUCKY, THEY'RE DUSTY, BUT PEOPLE ARE LOVIN EM! January 16 2017, 0 Comments

It's a beautiful week to listen to Yucky Duster! We have a feeling that's gonna be true EVERY WEEK FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES, but we've been playing their tape non-stop since we put it out on Friday. And you know what, I don't think we're the only ones. Cuz The Grey Estates made it their ALBUM OF THE WEEK! They said "Duster's Lament is like stepping onto a merry-go-round, with the off-kilter and engaging pop of Yucky Duster serving as your soundtrack. The four Brooklyn friends follow up their previously released full length with this release, 5-tracks of garage pop that epitomize the highs and lows of growing up and making it through each day... Even in the face of feeling like a total bummer, Yucky Duster finds a way to make it all seem okay - "I don't mean to get you down/I'm just having one of those years." If you can't bear to face the day or you need a reason to smile, the Brooklynites' merry-go-round is here to help you hide. All you need is the cotton candy." Read the rest of their review HERE.

The Current also reviewed Duster's Lament over the weekend, saying "Every song on the new EP has a line in it that is sure to make listeners smile... This offbeat humor, coupled with the group’s penchant for upbeat rhythms and sweet pop harmonies, seems to sprout right out of the head of Weezer’s “Blue Album.” Which reminds us! Make sure yr callin yr local college radio and tellin em you wanna hear more YUCKY DUSTER!

But THAT'S NOT ALL!! Mr. Anthony Fantano himself reviewed their last single "The Ropes" in his Best Tracks Of The Week round up (that makes two outta two singles!). You can watch that for yrself below. And afterwards, pick up a copy of Yucky Duster's new tape HERE!

 


GATHER YE DUSTERS WHILE YE MAY January 13 2017, 0 Comments

...FOR DUSTER'S LAMENT IS OUT TODAY!!!

That's right everybody, Yucky Duster's incredible new EP Duster's Lament is FINALLY OUT. Online, at shows, in stores, and here at our v own infinitycat.com. Guys we cannot stress enough how great this tape is. Despite the name, it's the perfect pick-me-up if you're bumming out thanks to the super relatable lyrics ("I don't mean to be a drag, I'm just having one of these years"? C'mon!) and the underlying sense of whimsy flowing through each tracks. Frankly, it's hard to put how much we love this cassette into words so here's some from folks around the web:

"Duster’s Lament is an EP of lamentations for our collective lives & world that will help us all as a people commiserate together as an exhausted & sometimes embarrassed (& overall embarrassing for that matter) world. Yucky Duster have made the record for our times that mixes the weird, awkward, bad, good, strange & unreal all together in a string of associative narratives that stream through the same clever pop tributary." -  IMPOSE Magazine

"Yucky Duster shine with an ever present sense of clever innocence and joyous mischief in their songs. Duster's Lament, the band's new EP is a bit darker than their debut, but it's as apparent as ever that the band are having fun as they dig through life's bummers with a smirk." - POST-TRASH

"Yucky Duster are here to brighten your day.  They are four friends from Brooklyn who together make a DIY melodic punk racket – think of the energy of Hinds playing the songs of Mac Demarco with the attitude of The Vaselines and you’ll get close... This EP shows a significant development in their songwriting chops...  It’s a winning blend of tight writing and loose production." God is in the TV

You can - AND ABSOLUTELY SHOULD - pick up Yucky Duster's Duster's Lament on sunshine yellow cassette RIGHT HERE. Part of the Infinity Cat Cassette Series, curated by the always fantastic Casey Weissbuch.
