Beer Soaked Bloody Nose Broken Heart…this is what LA’s NO WIN does best. The solo project of Musician/Producer/Engineer Danny Nogueiras, is rife with honesty, distortion and great f*#king songs! With a little help from his friends Max Keuhn (FIDLAR) Brandon Schwartzel (FIDLAR) Marshall Vore (Ryan Adams, Phoebe Bridgers) and David Jerkovich (Kind of Like Spitting) NO WIN’s 2 new singles “Crooked Heart” and “You’ll Be Fine” out April via Dangerbird keeps us up to speed with, and wanting more of NO WIN’s straight up, unapologetic brand of rock and roll. Just imagine if The Replacements got into a bar fight with Teenage Fanclub and somehow Superchunk ends up with the black eye…That’s NO WIN.
Hailing from the home of Thurston Moore and Dinosaur Jr., and drawing from the fertile music community that is Western Massachusetts, Potty Mouth are all-parts smart-pop craftswomen, specializing in taut, infectious, C-86 influenced indie pop meets '77 punk perfection. The band released their debut 12" vinyl EP, entitled "Sun Damage" in July 2012, which garnered the attention of Pitchfork, who called the six-song EP an "an impressive, no-filler debut," as well as The Boston Globe, who named Potty Mouth one of the "top five indie-rock bands to watch in 2013," with Brooklyn Vegan adding that they were "one of the most promising new bands in their local scene." Departing from the more angular shades of post-punk heard in their EP, "Hell Bent" is marked by its significantly heavier production and melancholic hooks. Nonetheless, the album stays true to the confident, youthful punk aesthetic the band has cultivated for themselves.
