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.


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!


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.
