“manipulator” music video”

September 8, 2016 4:39 pm

“This video questions the fine lines between different forms of manipulation, it asks ‘how far is too far?’ I wanted the viewer to feel more and more uncomfortable as the video progressed, to challenge rather than pass judgement on what’s right or wrong.” — Kim Pflaum (the voice behind MADEIRA)

Head over to Noisey and see the newest music video from MADEIRA for her track “Manipulator.” The song is taken from her forthcoming EP, Bad Humors, out September 23rd. Pre-orders are available now on the Carpark shop and iTunes.

Sadie Dupuis announces solo project Sad13 + shares first single

August 23, 2016 10:49 am

We are extremely hyped to announce the debut of Sadie Dupuis’ (of Speedy Ortiz) solo project Sad13. Her new album Slugger is empowering, fun, and prioritizes self-possession in every sense. The first single “Get A Yes” is streaming now via NPR Music.

Slugger arrives November 11th. Pre-orders are available in the Carpark shop and iTunes.
LPs will be pressed on buttercup-colored vinyl.

“It’s very strange (“Or not strange at all! Hi!” says feminism) that most of the music we funnel into little girls’ ears—even music written by former little girls—is about how women are petty, pretty garbage whose only valuable function is to hold perfectly still in men’s boudoirs and wait for intercourse. “I wanted to make songs that were the opposite of ‘Genie in A Bottle’ or ‘The Boy Is Mine,’” Sadie Dupuis says of Slugger, her new solo album under the name Sad13. “Songs that put affirmative consent at the heart of the subject matter and emphasize friendship among women and try to deescalate the toxic jealousy and ownership that are often centered in romantic pop songs.” What!? Songs for women that actually champion women’s autonomy, reflect women’s desires, listen to women when they talk, and let women be funny and normal and cool, like women actually are?” — Lindy West
