Worriers
Worriers
Worriers are a melodic punk band from Brooklyn, New York. The band’s music is centered around the songwriting of Lauren Denitzio, with the help of friends Mikey Erg, Rachel Rubino, Audrey Zee Whitesides, John McLean, Lou Hanman, and Nick Psillas, among others. They have released records with Don Giovanni, No Idea and Yo-Yo Records and toured with Beach Slang, Against Me!, The Falcon, Smith Street Band, and more. Described as "a masterfully crafted punk record" by the Village Voice, Worriers' first full-length "Imaginary Life" was produced by Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! and was released on Don Giovanni Records in 2015.

Can’t Die is a clever blend of pop and gloom, the sort of record that will keep you dancing even when the lyrics cut deep. Farren, who cites Coconut Records, Belle & Sebastian, and Magnetic Fields as his influences while recording, has crafted a record that has a true indie-pop sensibility and remains musically upbeat throughout.

Yet there is an undeniable sadness to certain tracks as well as a heavy focus on death and mortality, like on “Until I Can See The Light,” which was partly inspired by the death of Parks and Recreation writer Harris Wittels amongst other friends that have passed recently. It’s about “how weird it is that they’re gone,” explains Farren. “You don’t get to talk to them anymore.”

Chris Farren is one of those names that is always on the tip of your tongue. Though he’s played in popular bands Fake Problems and Antarctigo Vespucci — and he’s become well-known for his inventive merch, including his take on the classic The Smiths shirt — Farren is still working on breaking out in the large world of singer-songwriters. After experimenting and honing his solo work on a few memorable EPs and a Christmas album called Like A Gift From God or Whatever, Farren is ready to become known for his own unique approach, on his own terms.

At the end of the day, Can’t Die is a record that is wholly reflective of Chris Farren’s new sound. It’s not Fake Problems or Antarctigo Vespucci but instead it’s a sound that is entirely his: resonating indie-pop that captures all of the weird little anxieties of being in your twenties and realizing that you can’t control everything around you. Can’t Die adds some lightness to that, resulting in a record that makes listeners happy while also recognizing that it’s OK to be sad sometimes, too.
Typesetter
Typesetter
Typesetter is a band from Chicago, IL. They are influenced by punk, indie rock, shoegaze and noise rock. Since 2012 the band has played 250+ shows in the US, Canada, and Europe. Their latest release, EP "5," came out in May 2016 on Black Numbers.
Camp Cope
Camp Cope
Formed in 2015 to add body and beat to Georgia Maq’s solo songs which she has been performing for the past few years, the eight tracks on CAMP COPE’s debut discuss real life working shifts in a hospital, living in rundown share houses in Footscray and what it’s like to be a woman in the world. CAMP COPE’s soulful, indie-punk played under Maq’s raspy and robust voice have made it okay to enjoy feeling angst again.
