Formed in New Brunswick, NJ in 2005, Screaming Females are Marissa Paternoster (guitar, vox), Mike Abbate (bass), and Jarrett Dougherty (drums). Over six albums and more than a decade of music making, the band has remained deeply individual and steadfastly DIY. They have also grown into one of the most dynamic and devastating touring bands going today.

Marissa Paternoster’s voice is the relentless force and central instrument that drives Screaming Females’ All At Once. Her howling vibrato doesn’t necessarily outshine the fired-up shredding or evocative lyricism. Rather, it makes those elements feel that much grander. The expression “I’ll make you sorry” never sounded as sly and, frankly, believable as it does coming out of Paternoster’s mouth. A sense of restless intensity translates stylistically, too. All At Once is a feverish rock n’ roll album, pieced together with power-pop grooves, punk progressions, indie-rock melodies, and even a hint of ska. But as ever, Paternoster is the star. When she sings, “The sun destroys me,” on “Agnes Martin,” it doesn’t sound hyperbolic; it sounds as if she’s on the verge of melting.


Out February 23rd, All At Once, is the trio’s most expansive and imaginative work to date — a double LP that swings between surreal miniatures and and solo-heavy sprawl. Concision takes a backseat to experimentation, with arrangements meant to evoke the energy and spontaneity of their live shows. It’s music built across a timeline that’s longer than our internet-enhanced moment typically tolerates and a testament to the band’s dedication and perseverance.

Screaming Females is a three piece rock band from New Brunswick, New Jersey. Who have been writing, recording, and touring with one another for 13 years. AV club puts out a lot of fun covers and these two are no exception. Sure Marissa Paternoster struggles a bit singing ‘If it makes you happy’, but who doesn’t. And a Taylor Swift song is still a Taylor Swift song no matter how much Screamales awesomeness is poured on top of it. But both tracks are very enjoyable! Taylor Swift fans who came here on accident, be prepared to have your brains melted

New Brunswick New Jersey powerhouse Screaming Females have cranked out the first single since their 2015 album Rose Mountain, and it’s exactly as punchy and blistering as you would expect from this band. “Black Moon” is just another testament to how the trio have built their devoted fanbase in their decade-plus of being a unit with commanding vocals, and thundering Sabbath styled guitar and bass riffs.

The band previously released the single in physical format last week. The super-limited, ultra-exclusive 7” single was available in only 24 copies at only one store, Spina Records in their hometown of New Brunswick, N.J.

The Screaming Females head out on tour next week until the start of November—check out their dates and listen to “Black Moon” below.

This is the debut album by the dreamy cuddle punk trio from New Brunswick, New Jersey. They’re fronted by Leslie Bear, and that’s really who we talk about when we’re talking about Long Beard. She mentions Bowery Electric, Labradford, Lush, and Pale Saints as influences, but I hear something more like a toned-down Lois.

Performed By:
Leslie Bear– guitar, vocals
Stefan Koekemoer– drums
Tom Christie– bass, lead guitar (track 3), vocals (tracks 5 & 7)


Sleepwalker is a fitting title for Long Beard’s new album from New Brunswick, NJ Leslie Bear’s songs often sound like the space between the dream world and waking consciousness. It’s a hushed, declarative collection of tracks that focus on small facets of our day-to-day routine, and the seemingly insignificant thoughts it produces. Bear’s voice wafts in and out of spindly guitar motifs, but its delicate nature doesn’t hinder any of her precocious observations. They’re humbly rendered, huge revelations, “Hates the Party” by Long Beard, from Sleepwalker, out on vinyl and digital 23rd October 2015


The New Brunswick noisemakers in Screaming Females have steadily been on the ascent for some time, but it took the release of “Rose Mountain” to shine some well-deserved mainstream attention on not just the band, but its guitar-hero frontwoman, Marissa Paternoster. “Rose Mountain” is the kind of big, bombastic rock record fans clamor for, and Paternoster’s guitar wizardry only helps further upend the archaic notion that rock ’n’ roll is a man’s game.
