Where Is My Mind?: Mannequin Pussy

Childhood pals Marisa Dabice and Thanasi Paul formed Mannequin Pussy during their time in New York City. The group went through multiple configurations before bringing in Kaleen Read to take over drumming duties and solidifying their sound with the addition of Colins Regisford (a.k.a. Bear) on bass. The congruous, musical union inspired the band to return to the studio and record the follow-up to its debut LP Gypsy Pervert. Mannequin Pussy had already been building a reputation in the punk/DIY music community as a must-see on billings, and with the release of 2016’s Romantic, they began to garner deserved national/international critical acclaim, which eventually brought them top honors in The Deli Philly’s annual Best Emerging Artist(s) Poll.

Now, the quartet is all set to embark on their first European tour this weekend, and we had a chance to connect with Dabice before the start of this exciting, momentous occasion to talk about her and the band’s past, present, and future. It was a truly enjoyable exchange with the thoughtful Mannequin Pussy frontwoman, which you can check out HERE.





T-Rextasy plays Mercury Lounge tonight (05.26) with YATTA

New York's punk/indie sensation T-Rextasy is playing Mercury Lounge with YATTA tonight (May 26th). On their 2016 release Jurassic Punk, T-Rextasy weaves tales of rebellion against bourgeois banalities and defiant self-assurance in the beating of one's "moshing heart," as evidenced in "I Wanna Be a Punk Rocker." - Ethan Ames





Melkbelly plays Subterranean with Protomartyr 06.03

Chicago's noise-rock band Melkbelly will be playing at Subterranean on June 3rd in support of Protomartyr. On their 2016 7'' split release of "Mount Cool Kid" and "Elk Mountain," Melkbelly incorporates elements of industrial sludge, shoegaze and math-rock to create a burst of deftly controlled chaos. Check out the video for "Elk Mountain" below. - Ethan Ames





Talay & Panther Hollow release EPs at ALPHAVILLE on May 31

Time to add two new EPs to your collection of summer jams from the NYC scene: Talay's eponymous release which drops on June 2nd, and Panther Hollow's People Synesthesia, which drops on May 31st. Both groups have kept busy over the past few months performing at venues around the city, and it's all led up to a big record launch show at ALPHAVILLE on Wilson Avenue on May 31st. You won't want to miss Talay's pop-punk energy or Panther Hollow's striking storytelling. Also, head there to catch Massachusetts groups Sleeping Patterns and oldsoul as they pass through on their respective tours. You can stream new tracks from Talay and Panther Hollow -- called "I Hope Your Band Goes Nowhere" and "Jamie" respectively -- below. - Will Sisskind





The Rizzos return with a new LP, play The Well tonight

In 2015, Megan Mancini, Bettina Warshaw, and Justin Ferraro released a three-song EP entitled “No Parents, No Rules” under the pseudonym The Rizzos. Now, two years later, they’re back with a new member and a new approach to their music. In “No Parents, No Rules 2: Beneath The Planet of No Rules,” Josh Park joins on lead guitar, filling out their sound without taking away their fuzzy garage band roots. Despite the simple lyrics on songs like “Suckitude” (filled with interjections of “no duh,” and “you suck,”) the band has clearly grown up. Their coming of age is evident in the clean and energetic live recordings included on the album, as well as in the record’s cover — the “No Parents, No Rules” cover pictured four children, while on the latest LP the members appear as they are (with an intentional awkwardness to them). As if to say "We don’t want to grow up, but we are slowly resigning to the idea." You can see The Rizzos tonight at The Well with Lumps. - Lilly Milman, photo by Jeanette D. Moses
