The Plurals – Bzz: Live at The Robin Theatre

plurals-rt-cover
Some kinda new music! Here’s a previously unheard live recording of The Plurals at The Robin Theatre from May 4, 2019. This was the MUMBLEBEE release party and also the last full Plurals show for a good few months as Hattie was super pregnant at this show. It was a great time and we’re really happy to have a document of it. 18 tracks, lots of goofin, songs from across the Plurals catalog, plus a Cheap Trick cover. Check it out – there will be shows again!

Disappointed Dad s/t OUT NOW!


The other release from GTG Fest weekend, here’s the debut album from Disappointed Dad! This low-key-on-the-internet-but-in-your-face-in-person quartet features members of The Plurals, The Fiction Junkies, Frank and Earnest, the Cartridge Family, Josh David and the Dream Jeans, etc etc. Here’s 10 songs mostly from the whacky mind of Josh David, filtered through open G tuned guitars and some garage rock rhythm partners. There’s a couple vaguely political and social justice songs in there too for good measure. Check it out!

OUT NOW: Drinking Mercury / The Soods


5 new songs apiece from one of the longest serving GTG bands and the newest GTG band! Drinking Mercury recorded something like 17 songs at a cabin in Bitely, MI over the course of a couple trips in the last year and this split has the first batch of tunes to be released from these sessions. In addition to the advance single “The Market” the remaining four songs feature all of the group’s songwriters as well as a new arrangement of a traditional song. The rest of the songs from the cabin sessions will be out later this year! The Soods debuted earlier this year with some low-key releases but are now taking off in a big way with this release, featuring a who’s who of Grand Rapids musical talent. Members of longtime outfits Elroy Meltzer, Lazy Genius, The Howlers, and more are featured throughout and the result is a shimmery, tightly arranged batch of indie pop songs with an economy that would make Bob Pollard proud. Check out the album on our bandcamp page, stream it on Spotify, order a CD from our store… have at it!

Video Release: Drinking Mercury – The Market

Check it out! The video for Drinking Mercury’s new single “The Market” from the forthcoming split album with The Soods. The release party AND release date for the split is this Friday, 9/20! 5 new songs apiece from both of these acts, and you can catch ’em live at The Intersection in Grand Rapids to celebrate the release!
