"Featuring but two, Julian Teakle on bass and Peter Escott singing and manipulating the machines, they nonetheless manage to make a basement-rumbling, intimate beast of a sound that captivates even as it oftentimes disturbs. Minimalist and softly nightmarish like Young Marble Giants in an updated Edgar Allen Poe allegory, there’s really no one sounds anything like them."
Listening to Rough Mixes of the Tomboy 12" and I'm pretty sure this will be one of the best records of 2014.
We are very excited for Peter from Native Cats solo lp! It's about time!

Very lovely review of the Saralee 12" from Termbo. Saralee "repress" will be done this week!
Saralee s/t LP
Debut full length from Boston's Saralee, a co-ed duo (Sara on vox/guitar, Lee on drums!) who already had some demos under their belt. It's rare to hear this kind of nearly twee lo-fi indie rock done well, but Saralee succeed with plenty ofcharisma and a ramshackle quality that reminds me of the Dawn Johnson/Rob Vazquez bands like Man Tee Mans or Gorls. Things never get too punky, but could be called quite garagey and there's a great sense of humor evident on tunes like "Children of the Night" or "Jackolantern House". Of course this stuff has to be a bit cute to work as well, and Sara's vocals convey the necessary girlish charm but never sound weak either. A bit reminscent of Barbara Manning even. Great recording sound, the guitar rings brightly while the drums ride shotgun and don't overpower. I challenge you to listen to "Lead the Fire" and not become charmed. A surprisingly well executed and personable record in a style that's difficult to pull off - I like this quite a bit. You never know what you're gonna get from Ride the Snake, and that's a good thing. Scum stats: 200 copies, sold out already?!(RK)

Really great interview with Madeline from Tomboy about her play Mom Baby God and "queer histories, camp aesthetics, and the future of reproductive justice.". I just added all the books by Lillian Faderman and and John D'Emilio to my goodreads "to read" shelf because of this interview.
