Slaughter Beach, Dog was started as a side project for Jake Ewald, one of Modern Baseball's two singer/songwriters. Born out of a case of writers block, Jake used the project to experiment with writing from the point of view of fictional characters in the fictional town of Slaughter Beach to break off from the ultra-personal technique he'd developed in his main project. Since Modern Baseball announced their hiatus last year, Slaughter Beach, Dog has become Jake's main vehicle, giving him a chance to go all in on developing as a songwriter. Combining writing styles and flowing free between truth and fiction, the album takes Jake's signature mouth-full writing style, adds in some new influences from bands like Wilco, The Weakerthans, Jets To Brazil and Pedro The Lion, and comes out with something completely fresh.
Cherry have just announced their debut album Dumbness, which we're releasing on September 29th! The Philadelphia indie rock project, which features ex-Kite Party members Russell Edling and Justin Fox, current Three Man Cannon bassist Spencer Colmbs, and Lame-O Records owner Eric Osman on drums, are now premiering a new music video for their new song "Under The Sun" via GoldFlakePaint.
Walter Etc. (formerly Walter Mitty and His Makeshift Orchestra) have a new LP Gloom Cruise, and Lame-O is co-releasing it with Lauren Records on August 25th! The first single from the song "April 41st" is streaming now via The Four Oh Five. The Four Oh Five calls the song a "beautiful slice of pop magic." Saying, "'April 41st' is a near-perfect realization of the band's work on this record, bringing distinctive vocals, ear worm guitar parts and feel good vibes all under one roof. And by feel good vibes, I mean this is the kind of song you dance to in the rain with your friends on a warm summer night." Gloom Cruise was produced by Jeff Rosenstock (of Bomb The Music Industry) and mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Joyce Manor). Pre-orders for the record are available now on vinyl via Lame-O Records and Lauren Records, and on cassette via Making New Enemies.
