Prism Bitch started as a performance arts project in Albuquerque, NM, but rapidly volcanoed into total bandhood by 2016. Their first release “The Getaway,” was self released in October of 2016. Since then, they have played Treefort Music Fest, toured the west coast, played tons of local shows and recorded an EP with the respected engineer, Toshi Kasai (Dave Matthews Band, Foo Fighters ) in Los Angeles.

The group has created a reputation for wild live performances, retaining their roots as a thrashing punk band, and has also developed a strong pop sensibility, often compared to The Pixies and the B-52’s. They manage to represent a wide span of influences but could best be best described as soul punkers that want to rock n’ roll no matter what.

Freakout Records is thrilled to have Prism Bitch In the family!

Smokey Brights make music that taps into history and stretches out a kind of visionary rock that rolls relentlessly forwardwhile recombining iconic sounds – from funk to Fleetwood Mac, Bowie to Blur, disco to Dire Straits, and splashes of Floyd psychedelia – crafting something urgent, fun, and utterly surprising.

it was back in 2010 than Smokey Brights first formed; Ryan Devlin and Kim West, a new couple with not much money to spare, set about singing Christmas songs to give out as gifts, seven years later they’re stilling singing. They may have been making music for a number of years, however with the release of their upcoming EP, Come To Terms, 2018 looks like being the year when a lot more people notice them doing it.

The recently released title track, Come To Terms, is a fine introduction to the band’s sound, built around reverberating guitars and bombastic drum beats, it finds Ryan’s gravelly, Cold War Kids meets Two Gallants, vocal to the fore, while Kim’s soulful Beth Ditto like backing adds some wonderful depth to the track. Come To Terms is a record of social division, soundtracking the growth of political chasms between alternating view points, and asking how we can go about rising above and starting to heal the wounds; as Devlin sings on the closing track, “This is not the time to turn your back on what you see. Find the strength in you, and I will find the good in me”. There’s plenty of good to be found here, a big bold and important record, Smokey Brights are a band who seven years in have never sounded more important.

It’s Been two years since Athens, GA based Roadkill Ghost Choir has taken listeners on a ride. With the arrival of False Youth Etcetera’, brothers Andrew & Zach Shepard have outgrown their roots in a supersonic fashion. This desire to explore new musical terrain was only bolstered by Shepard’s adoration for similar sonic explorations and artists transcending their genre to create a unique sound – rooted in influences such as The War on Drugs, Neu! and Bruce Springsteen.

The result is an album that beautifully delivers the group to a whole new infectious, cosmic terrain. False Youth Etcetera is now available for the first time on 12″ double disc black vinyl from Freakout Records.

Cinematic, indie-rockers Roadkill Ghost Choir have announced their return with a new album entitled “False Youth Etcetera”, out October 27th via Freakout Records.

“’Classics (Die Young)’ is my tribute to Dylan & The Boss and a reminder to myself to keep on moving forward through the dark days. The tone of the song was inspired by one of my favorite Springsteen tracks ‘Tougher Than The Rest’ and I wanted to chase down that feeling I got from it.” – Andy Shepard (lead singer)
