SadGirl – “Water”
Check out some glorious vinyl on this week’s RECORD OF THE WEEK Blog!!!
With their new album ‘Water,’ Los Angeles trio SADGIRL taps into the romantic and nostalgic spirit of their native city while exuding a time-tested authenticity suggesting they’ve had a peek behind the curtain of the glitzy boulevards and relentless sunshine. It’s a collection of breezy pop songs captured with the timbre of old-time recording techniques. Get the Galaxy Blue colored record or the other versions from SUICIDE SQUEEZE RECORDS or catch SADGIRL at one of their few select west coast shows starting in July!

The members of WADE cut their teeth writing music together by taking satirical and often subversive lyrics and combining them with random genres of music. Surf Rock, Reggae, spaghetti western, Romantic ballad to name some. WADE is celebrating ten years together and with this comes their third album release “1B4.” WADE has a passion for DIY, gritty, “mistakes and all’, analog live performance, going against the grain of today’s Protools polish, plugins, and presets recording ethic. As a result, WADE has come into it’s own as a highly musical, eclectic, original, irreverent presentation to the highly discerning (albeit crass) connoisseur of music. If any of the aforementioned strikes your fancy, get WADE!

Difficult to describe due to its musically diverse nature, LOS NUEVOS BAJOS is a heart felt love letter to some of latins america’s forgotten music idols, that was written in a desolate and dimly lit motel bathroom stall.
