NAÏM AMOR IS IN DA' HIZZOUSE (THAT MEANS "HOUSE," MOM)

The test pressing for Naïm Amor's Hear the Walls is in, and we could not be more excited!  Naïm has been one of our favorite artists from Tucson, AZ, ever since first settling there in 2006, and it is truly an honor to now have the opportunity to be the first to hear his latest recording on vinyl record before anyone else.  Hear the Walls is potentially Naïm's greatest work to date, and we are looking forward to presenting this album to you on October 28th.  But for now, we have to make sure that the centering is accurate with the pressing, and that there are no surface noises.  Stay tuned!  (Many thanks to Rainbo Records and Golden Mastering!)

WET & RECKLESS GO TO THE MOVIES

Before she played bass guitar in Wet & Reckless, Tucson's own Jessica Gelt was in another Los Angeles post-punk / new-wave band called The Movies.  Now part-time television producer, not to mention staff writer at the Los Angeles Times, Gelt has partnered with Maker.tv, fashion brand NYLON, and writers Brian Canning (Irving, Afternoons) and Christian Casucci, to put together a 10-episode web series called Oh, You Pretty Things!, loosely based on the travails of The Movies.

Kevin Bronson from Buzzbands.LA has a great story about the web series you can read here.

Maker Studios has release a soundtrack for the web series that you can purchase from iTunes here, which includes two brand new tracks from Wet & Reckless - "Confetti" and "Bad Blood."

Listen to "Confetti" here:
