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.

  • BIGGEST NEWS O THE WEEK! We are oh so very excited to announce Yucky Duster as our next Cassette Series band!! Their new single “Elementary School Dropout” premiered on Stereogum on Monday and lemme tell ya, it’s 100% guaranteed to put a smile on that face of yours!

  • We ain’t the only ones lovin’ on Yucky Duster. The Grey Estates called their new single “the sweetest ode to being the bad kid ever” (among some other v v nice things) and Spanish blog Mindies said they “canta a todas esas cosas tediosas de nuestras vidas de una forma siempre entusiasta, adoptando la frescura propia del power pop sin adherirse al género totalmente.” (Practice your high school Spanish CUZ WE’RE GOIN GLOBAL!!)
  • Speaking of the Cassette Series, Gold Flake Paint named Cross Country’s Trials one of their Essential Tapes of 2016! If you haven’t picked up their debut tape on crystal clear cassette, you can either snag it on its own OR as part of our holiday tape bundles. Either way, you just gotta DOO IT!
  • Post-Trash also reviewed Cross Country’s album, calling it “a considerable step up for the band, both in terms of song-craft and instrumental prowess.” Check that out here!
  • Next week, JEFF The Brotherhood’s headed out on a mini-tour round the south! Check out those dates & tix here, and GO SEE A SHOW. Maybe you’ll even be able to catch the elusive yeti…

  • Diarrhea Planet announced another date on their trek to their New Year Eve bash at The Sinclair. Peep those dates & tix here.
  • Treble showing a lot of love and spittin a lot of truth in their Best of 2016 lists. “Bob Dylan’s Grandma” came in at #69 on their list of Best Songs, while Turn To Gold itself swung it at #34 on their list of Best Albums. Both posts are Recommended Reading for their glorious descriptions of DP.
  • Another year, another Year In Band Names. At this point, it’s an Infinity Cat rite of passage to make AV Club’s list of bad band names so we’d like to give our congratulations to MUSIC BAND for making the list this year! (And shouts out to Nashville buds like Soccer Mommy, Goth Babe, Meth Dad, and more for also making the list.)
