Sleater-Kinney
Sleater-Kinney
Sleater-Kinney's The Center Won’t Hold is the first new album from the celebrated band since their 2015 album, No Cities To Love, available August 16 on Mom + Pop. After years of legendary collaboration, rock’n’roll giants Carrie Brownstein (guitar/vocals) and Corin Tucker (guitar/vocals) sound bigger and bolder than ever. The new album was produced by Annie Clark (St. Vincent), and hailed by The FADER as “one of the most furious, dynamic records of their career.” The New York Times called them “one of rock’s most enduring and respected acts” and Rolling Stone gave the record 4 stars and raved, “one of America’s greatest bands does battle with modern apathy on thrilling LP.”

Sleater-Kinney set a new bar for punk’s political insight and emotional impact. Now, at the height of their formidable powers, the feminist icons continue to challenge themselves, break all the rules and push boundaries. This new creative chapter in the acclaimed band’s musical journey is poised to win over both longtime admirers and new fans alike.
Shamir
Shamir
Born in North Las Vegas but calling Philly home since 2015, the name Shamir has become synomous with musical metamorphosis. With every release, usually a sharp left turn from the last, he has proven to be a master of reinvention. Able to inhabit multiple genres at once, effortlessly, in the last five years he has created: anthemic pop singles, lo-fi indie rock, punk, country, and more recently, political ballads touching on everything from Black Lives Matter to Straight Boy(s). His most recent limited release album is called Be the Yee, Here Comes the Haw. He is currently playing the role of Draca on the new Ali Wong, Tiffany Haddish animated Netflix tv series, Tuca & Bertie. Shamir was on the cover of Document Journal in March and his most recent interview in New York Magazine, published this month, is entitled, “The Business of Being Queer”. Shamir also writes a monthly series tv review column for The Talkhouse called Ratchet TV.
