We've signed Lowercase Roses! Posted 19 Aug 2015

Hey! We've signed Lowercase Roses! ! To celebrate the news, we're teaming up with Stereophonodon Records for the first ever vinyl pressing of the band's self-titled debut EP. The official release date for the Lowercase Roses 7" is August 21st, but all orders through the Lame-O Records webstore will ship immediately. The band recently filmed a haunting session Live from Bad Racket in Cleveland Ohio. Click HERE to watch his haunting performance of "Boys." Grab the 7" at the link below!!

Lowercase Roses, the new project from Matthew Scheuermann, grew out of a change in scenery. Coming from Cleveland to the Philadelphia scene, Scheuermann began recording and performing the songs that would become his self-titled EP under the name Roses (later changed to Lowercase Roses). Reminiscent of the indie singer-songwriters of the late 90s, the Lowercase Roses EP is filled with hypnotizingly beautiful melodies. Like the artists that inspired him, Scheuermann packs each track with the kind of emotion and clever lyricism that instantly sticks.

With just an acoustic guitar and striking vocals, Lowercase Roses releases three songs that feel simultaneously completely unique and comfortably familiar. This charming contradiction has already begun winning hearts in the Philadelphia scene. With the first physical release under the name Lowercase Roses, Scheuermann starts off with the three perfect songs to re-introduce him to the world as a creative force in indie-rock songwriting.

Steady Hands Announces 'Tropical Depression' Posted 09 Jul 2015

We're releasing the new EP from Steady Hands!! Tropical Depression is coming to Lame-O Records on July 28th. Check out the title track on The AV Club and pre-order now through our bandcamp page!

What is now the 7-piece folk-punk powerhouse Steady Hands began as a folk troubadour side-project for Sean Huber, the drummer of Modern Baseball. Inspired by Billy Bragg, Bruce Springsteen, Frank Turner and other classic punk influenced singer-songwriters, Huber began thrashing his way through Philadelphia bars and basements in 2012. Driven by an energy inconceivable to most, Huber took advantage of every second of down time from his drumming duties in Modern Baseball, committing to life on the road and creating his own name across the US and UK. 

The latest EP Tropical Depression reveals Steady Hands as a band who knows who they are. With a new found musical maturation and the heart-on-your-sleeve attitude that has always defined Steady Hands, the new EP is the band at their strongest. Tropical Depression is a must-hear EP for any fans of folk, punk, or rock and roll.

The Weaks Announce New Record, BAD YEAR Posted 23 Feb 2015

The Weaks have a new record!!!! The band will be releasing their first full length, Bad Year, on April 7th via Lame-O Records. 

After the release of their 2014 debut EP The World Is A Terrible Place And I Hate Myself And Want To DieThe Weaks went to work on creating the best rock and roll record of the decade. Bad Year, the first full length record from The Weaks, is filled with more guitars than all the songs you've heard on the radio in the last ten years combined. Slowly making their way towards superstardom, The Weaks have taken everything you love about Weezer, Superchunk and Cheap Trick and squeezed them together in eleven tracks of purified rock. 

The Weaks keep the same tongue in cheek tomfoolery that earned them their cult following with The World Is A Terrible Place (see Bad Year tracks 2, 9 & 11), and just like on that EP, Bad Year's cheeky titling is fully backed up by well-crafted, beautifully recorded, brilliantly catchy songs. The songwriting duo of Evan Bernard and Chris Baglivo  may be silly, but they are no joke. Alternating between shredding rockers and pop-y sing-alongs, The Weaks have put their back into delivering you your new favorite record. 


The band will be touring in April with Brand New. Dates for those shows can be found below. 
Pre-orders for Bad Year go live Wednesday, February 25th, 2015 via the Lame-O Records webstore
