We've Signed The Pooches! Posted 11 Jan 2016

We're very very very excited to announce we've signed The Pooches out of Glasgow, Scotland! We'll be putting out their new EP Heart Attack on January 29th. You can check out the title track via Stereogum at the link below!

The Pooches started as the one-man home recording project of Jimmy Hindle during the summer of 2013 in Glasgow, Scotland. After a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund an album of 18 original songs, ‘Smoochin’ with the Pooches’ was self-released digitally via Bandcamp in late 2013. With it’s lo-fi pop charms being described as sounding ‘like Julian Casablancas fronting The Beach Boys’, it soon caught the attention of local label Gold Mold Records, who released it on limited edition tape in the UK, with it selling out pretty much straight away. The achieved top ten adds at over 20 college radio stations in the US. A further collection of home recordings - ‘One Man Dog’ - was also released in early 2015.

The band, now expanded to a 4 piece with Calvin Halliday on drums, Andy Kelly on guitar and Gavin Cormack on bass, have opened for Surfer Blood, Juan Wauters, Colleen Green, Craft Spells, Hop Along and more.

The new line-up recorded their debut EP, ‘Heart Attack’ in the summer of 2015 with Chris McCrory at Shady Lane Studios in Glasgow. 'Heart Attack' takes influence from the Stiff Records sound of bands like Any Trouble and Squeeze, whilst simultaneously carrying on the tradition of Glaswegian indie-pop legends The Pastels and Teenage Fanclub. In 2016, the EP will be released via Lame-O Records and Gnar Tapes in the US.

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.
