Prima
Prima
Prima is the rock project of Rose Blanshei, who tells emotional stories which range from satire to confession, all delivered with a undeniable raw intensity. The songs are visceral, driving, and are sonically immediate while the lyrics are continuously giving, shedding more hopeful and humanist notes with every listen. Performance is Prima's debut release, out June 1st on Time Castle Records.
Russian Baths
Russian Baths
Russian Baths is a band from Brooklyn, NY. Their debut track, "Ambulance," premiered on Stereogum.

The band treats feedback and harmony with equal significance. By incorporating dissonance into traditional song structures, their sound recalls Big Black's caustic fits, '70s space rock, Chapel Hill's noise pop, Big Muff driven grunge, and the angular arrangements of British post punk. Their cassette single, Ambulance, was released April 15th on Time Castle with a limited run.

Russian Baths is Luke Koz, Jess Ress, Evan Gill Smith, and Jeff Widner.
Katie Von Schleicher
Katie Von Schleicher
Released on cassette last year, Katie Von Schleicher’s Bleaksploitation took the tape world by enough of a storm to thunder demand for more formats. "Bleaksploitation is earnest pop for the wonderfully doomed generation," says DIY Magazine; Stereogum calls the debut "stellar" and "invigoratingly terrifying"; Consequence of Sound described her songs as “like ghosts trying to communicate through a cassette deck”; Paste claims they “sound like a vintage girl group playing in the basement of a haunted house.” This is exciting music from someone we’ll be hearing about for a long time to come.

Bleaksploitation was recorded in a dark room on a Tascam 4-track cassette machine. The result is hazy, terrifying and playful. This is what happens when well-crafted songs are made in the moment, warped, drunk on themselves. Von Schleicher’s voice sinks like an anchor and rises like a phoenix, wrestling its way through its very own form of basement tapes. ’70s piano rock provides the core, sad lyrics form the shell.
