We’re proud to announce Dent May’s cover of Motown legend Leon Ware’s “Why I Came To California.” The classic, soulful groove has been reimagined with Dent’s playful sound to bring a new shine to California.
“This is a love letter to California originally performed by Leon Ware. It’s the first thing I finished at Honeymoon Suite, the new recording studio I share with Pat Jones (who mixed the track) and Michael Rosen of Cones in Los Angeles. You can hear us play it on our upcoming California tour.” — Dent May

We are beyond excited to announce the return of TEEN. The lieberson sisters shared their illuminating new single, “Only Water,” today via NPR Music. A celebration of life that doesn’t fail to acknowledge the sorrow and aimlessness of loss.
Teeny Lieberson on the track:
“‘Only Water’ tells the story of my experience of my father’s sickness and death. It explores the final moments that I had with him, as well as the processing of the loss of a parent. As it has been many years since his death, my relationship to losing him has changed. I have been thinking a lot about the idea of possession and how it can even exist once someone has died. The song questions this principle; if we are all water, can’t I have you? Can I be you? Which in, abstractly, is a celebration of letting go. The freedom within oneness as well as nothingness.”
Good Fruit, the follow-up to 2016’s Love Yes, is due out March 1st, 2019. Pre-orders are available now.

2018 has been an extremely successful/busy year for our #1 Sadie Dupuis & her band Speedy Ortiz. A third studio album, a book of poetry, 8+ months of touring, a claymation video feat. a nice looking wolf, a ringtone feat. a nice sounding hamster, and so on.
Noisey spoke with the frontdemon in an exclusive interview. Read all about it.
“…you don’t want to totally brutally reveal everything that’s going on in your mind when you do any kind of art, but now that I have some remove from it, I don’t know what the exact meaning of all of the pieces are. So I can kind of appreciate them as a reader and there are poems in there hat make me feel like, this is really sad, or, this is really lonely. But I don’t really feel like it’s me, because it’s been so much time and there are so many poems and poets that I appreciate who, you know, I read them for those things. I read them to tap into those feelings.
Loneliness is kind of a hallmark in lots of people’s art and people are drawn to that kind of art because they want to feel like they’re not the only one with that kind of feeling. You’re drawn to lonely art because you don’t want to feel that way anymore. In revisiting this stuff I could recognize those feelings and as someone who doesn’t really feel that way anymore, I still enjoyed reading that work.” — Sadie Dupuis
