Since first arriving on the Bay Area music scene four years ago, Pllush have amassed a dedicated following with the release of a pair of EPs (2015’s Pine and 2016’s Please) and a split with Father/Daughter label mates Remember Sports. 2018 sees the quartet release their debut full-length album, Stranger to the Pain, comprised of twelve songs recorded and mixed by Grace Coleman at Different Fur Studios in San Francisco, CA and mixed by Carl Saff in Chicago, IL. The tender, slow tempoed lead single “Shannon” is centered on Karli Helm’s exquisite vocal style, leaving the listener with a memorable piano outro.
Having been the driving force of Attic Abasement for over a decade now, Mike Rheinheimer, a Rochester, NY native has amassed an extensive back catalog of lo-fi albums and EPs -- each one distributed via Bandcamp and short-run CD-Rs, and it was through those means that Attic Abasement's name became an underground phenomena. On April 6, 2018, Father/Daughter is proud to reissue Attic Abasement's seminal album, Dancing Is Depressing, digitally and on vinyl for the first and only time. Not only that, Dancing Is Depressing (Expanded Edition) will feature a pair of songs that originally appeared on local Rochester compilation albums.

With the release of Hesitater, a new three-song EP by Durham’s Pale Kids out March 23, the band takes another step forward, writing their strongest melodies to date and crafting lyrics that pack a meaningful punch.
