Ecology Records will make an alternate version of the cassette coupled with a zine available locally in the Atlanta area and Jeff Rosenstock's online donation-based label Quote Unquote Records will have the EP available on their site. $1 from each sale of the Father/Daughter cassette will be donated to Meals on Wheels and ARC Southeast.
NPR All Songs Considered premiered the first single, "Just A Gwen" calling it "a great example of why Art School Jocks self-applied the description "existential basement pop," with its hooky melody and weighty subject matter." Listen to "Just A Gwen" HERE and pre-order the EP Cassette & Digital HERE.

Austin lovelies, Alex Napping, are our newest additions to the Father/Daughter team. Fresh off the heels of their 2016 releases, Trembles Parts I and II, the group tests out their new dynamic sound with their next record, Mise En Place. They share with us their first single, "Living Room" - a moody and honest look into the feelings that come with inviting someone new into your life and into a place that could be real or just made up. Stereogum wrote an awesome piece about the new track here, so peep that if you just love alternative rock and roll publications and need some cool content in your life.
Pre-order the record on Bone and Cyan A-side/B-side wax or on Black wax on our store or our bandcamp page, and hit up Sports Day Records for a copy of Mise En Place on cassette!
That's right. Our besties in Diet Cig are releasing their first full-length in just a few months! Swear I’m Good At This is the first full-length from the band and accumulates their tenacity for crafting life-affirming, relatable tales with a gutsy heart at their core. Luciano has the ability to write lyrics that are both vulnerable and badass, perfecting a storm of emotive reflection that creates a vision of a sweaty, pumped-up room screaming these lines in unison. The folks at Pitchfork featured the track "Tummy Ache" on their site, calling the songwriting a sentimental and relatable mix of lo-fi indie pop. Diet Cig make it okay to be the hot mess that you are.
Nab a copy on wax or on CD at the Frenchkiss Records store or a limited edition red and gold glitter cassette from our store here! Stream "Tummy Ache" the first single from their new record below.
Life is about doing new things, trying new things, and listening to new things. Why not take a dive into Hiccup's upcoming debut record Imaginary Enemies? We put out the Hiccup cassingle almost two years ago, and since then the band has been ferociously writing, playing shows, and mastering their craft. The newest single "Teasin'" displays signs of their maturity as a band and their skill in creating songs with both pop hooks and relentless pop-punk riffing. Imaginary Enemies, Hiccup's debut full-length effort, was produced by Kyle Gilbride (Waxahatchee, Swearin', All Dogs), and will be released on Father/Daughter Records on March 24, 2017.
Pre-order Imaginary enemieshere and stream "Teasin'" below.

Being noisy, poppy, and heavy all the same time is a tough feat to master, but Loose Tooth has done the dang thing. Pre-order Big Dayhere and stream "Garlic Soup" below.

Forth Wanderers are a band we've long admired so it goes without saying we're very excited to welcome them and their new EP Slop to the label! The four-song collection is the first new material from the Montclair, NJ five piece since 2014's Tough Love. The Slop EP is a co-release with House Anxiety / Marathon Artists in the UK. Pre-order one of the limited edition 12" LPs & CDs HERE and listen to the title track on The Fader HERE.
"Soundtracked brilliantly by the band’s scratchy guitar solos and wavering vocal that almost always feels like it might collapse at any moment, the new film is a searing reminder that the oft-forgotten medium still has a hell of a lot to offer." GoldFlakePaint - our best buds across the pond - debuted Attic Abasement's "Guarantee Jesus" music video directed by Micah Van Hove. Watch it hereand buy Dream News on LP/CD here.
