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
Katie von Schleicher rose from intern to artist on Brooklyn label Ba Da Bing with Bleaksploitation, a self-recorded 2015 mini album of irreverent, fuzz-laden tunes. On her debut full-length, von Schleicher strikes again on the magic that comes from her warped and uncompromising sound. Shitty Hits channels the bright, sunny radio burners of the 1970’s, songs you drive to, carefree, and songs you can cry to, which The Guardian describe as “Portishead meets the Beatles,” and NPR’s Bob Boilen calls “one of those constant repeat records for me."

Conjuring the home recorded sound of Paul McCartney's McCartney or Jeff Buckley’s Sketches For My Sweetheart The Drunk, Shitty Hits was created on a tape machine at von Schleicher's childhood home in Maryland. Where Bleaksploitation courted a kind of sonic nihilism, Shitty Hits shows confidence, growth and unflinching self-realization. Inhabiting the roles of producer and engineer, von Schleicher cements her voice as one to be reckoned with, parsed and pored over, on an album that is “never less than beguiling” (Pitchfork).
