A few weeks ago I had the strange privilege of this late night drunken snack - sauteed octopus on fancy toast with miso yogurt. It was both the most unexpected and most incredible thing I’d put in my mouth in a very long time.
What is your favorite board game?
I’m a Scrabble guy.
If you weren’t a musician, what would your dream job be?
Architect
What song do you wish you had written?
Impossible question!!  But I think today I will answer that with Village Green by the Kinks.
If you could outlaw something, what would you ban?
Radio commercials

Here’s a gif of Deerhoof drummer Greg Saunier wailing at LPR back in 2009 (from Melissa Rosenthal’s video). We’re looking forward to having the band back on our stage on Saturday, May 3!

Deerhoof’s playing a run of U.S. shows starting tomorrow. Will one of them be in a city near you??

Nice moves! I’m no expert, but I’m pretty sure you just increased the re-sale value on that vehicle by at least 12%.

STRFKR and Painted Palms played a couple of shows together last week and our social networking guru Andy was along for the ride.

Above are some of his pics from the trip.

If you missed out, don’t worry because both bands are still on the road.

STRFKR is playing the second weekend of Coachella and if their set is anything like last weekend (which Huffington Post declared was the festival’s “Most WTF Moment” — in a good way) it will definitely be a must see.

Painted Palms just kicked off their first European tour. They’ll be playing shows through the end of the month, so check out all the remaining dates.

White Reaper do not wait for introductions in their single Half Bad. They unleash a sonic blitzkrieg, busting out of the gate with powerful drums, stinging gits and cheeky keys. It’s a wild ride—for about three minutes.

Saw this trio play in Champaign about a month ago and they completely blew our faces off for the entire 15 minutes they were on stage. Can’t wait for the full EP to come out!

Pre-order a copy on clear pink vinyl in our E-Store now.
