CONE, MARK - MARK CONE SINGS
While crawling around the country with his fanatical basement punk band UROCHROMES and the no-wave thrashers SEDIMENT CLUB over the last several years, Jackie McDermott somehow nurtured a bizarre alter-ego inside himself. This is Mark Cone, who showed up at Nicey Studio last winter with a miniature Casio keyboard and a meticulously programmed 8-bit drum machine. His first 6 songs echo the dissonant keyboard punk of The Screamers, with 12-tone compositions akin to the nonsensical home recordings of Harry Merry and outrageous vocal content from the camp of Fred Schneider. Averaging under 2 minutes apiece, these tracks pack maximum dynamics into a completely engrossing 7-inch experience, immortalized in wax for only 250 lucky customers.

GROVE, BANNY - CARS IN CONTROL
Sometimes it takes a post-human character to stir the humanity in a citizen of the 21st century. Sometime there's no better role model than a woman in a wig, pointing down the path of righteousness with big, caricature-ized gestures. Louise Chicoine's alter-ego BANNY GROVE burst onto the scene in 2016, like a toon ripping thru the thin fabric of Los Angeles reality, and immediately found a devoted following of fans who uphold the fictional diva as some kind of messiah of loving neighborliness, or the Mary Poppins of DIY. Her debut full-length Who Is She? introduced Banny's uniquely candid vocal delivery, that skips between talky honesty and operatic ebullience, and her palette of punchy 80's drum machines and glittering, artificial, Nickelodeon-esque synth patches. Guitarist Peter Nichols's arrangements include sections of Prince-ly funkiness and Elfman-y goofiness, as well as a healthy dose of the odd-metered prog futurism we came to expect from his prior outfit Grape Room. In her first year on Earth, Banny has toured to 9 countries and opened for such stars as Cherry Glazerr, Ian Sweet, and Palberta. Wherever she goes, she flies through the scene with the untiring energy of a person who's not the least bit confused about her purpose as a songwriter, a performer, and (as co-founder of Nicey Music) a culture-shaper: simply to spread the law of kindness as far as she can. Now Banny Grove is returning with an EP of 5 very ambitious songs - Cars in Control - written and reworked obsessively over a hectic and disastrous year. The title track ridicules the absurdity of 'the oil man' while dreaming of a clean energy future, and "Trash Truck" is sung from the optimistic perspective of a child living underground when the surface world is an unseen desert of garbage. "Baby" and "The Manger" preach the importance of self-esteem, first in a contemporary mode and then in an utterly deconstructed composition of off-kilter 808s and orchestral pads. And "Dogs FM" employs a futuristic power-pop groove to imagine a media outlet with canine innocence. Through it all, Louise confronts the senselessness of our modern world with a clown's unshakable goofiness and goodwill, and a visionary idealism that's all her own.

JEPETO SOLUTIONS - JEPETO SOLUTIONS
Will be opening for OF MONTREAL on all 23 of their US dates in April 2017!! Here is the semi-debut from this newly-beefed-up New York City superforce, formed around the core of what was once CE SCHNEIDER TOPICAL. As the house band of the beloved, trendsetting label OSR (which is now sadly closing its doors like Willy Wonka's chocolate factory), CE Schneider Topical enchanted the world with last winter's Antifree LP, that demonstrated the soft power of Christina Schneider's songwriting and crystal voice when subjected to Zach Phillips' instrumental accompaniment and reel-to-reel experimentation at Manual FX Studio. So it's no surprise they attracted two of NYC's greatest for their evolution into JEPETO SOLUTIONS - namely Quentin Moore of BIG FRENCH on guitar and Derek Baron of CAUSINGS and MEGA BOG on drums.

GRAPE ROOM - HEART OF GUM
Following up a slew of LPs on Feeding Tube Records and NNA Tapes, the twisted pop producer Grape Room (fka Great Valley, or in real life, Peter Nichols) presents his Nicey debut, written and recorded in the last months of his half-decade in the fabled hill town Brattleboro VT, where demented but brilliant Brian-Wilson-esque pop songs seem to fall out the sky (see Chris Weisman, The Lentils, Ruth Garbus, Blanche Blanche Blanche).

The alterego of Louise Chicoine, leader of the MA psych cult RABBIT RABBIT, in the roaming studio of GRAPE ROOM (aka Peter Nichols), the underground pop mastermind known for his homespun method of "reverse-engineering pop gold for the alternative sects." (Sjimon Gompers, IMPOSE)

MEGA BOG - HAPPY TOGETHER
Awaited for years by the large nationwide cult of Boggers in the know, Erin Birgy's second LP at the helm of the fog-shrouded ship they call MEGA BOG is an instant and timeless classic. It's equal parts nostalgic and futuristic, mapping a new, jazz-literate and free form of songcraft onto the model of the traditional guitar-based band. It's poetry on roller skates, defying recognizable structures in favor of a stream-of-consciousness flow that guides Erin's lyrics around their many soft and uncertain turns. It's an inspiring example of a unique vision carried to it's most honest and vulnerable realization. Happy Together is a remarkably consistent and complete record that cuts the deepest when experienced from start to finish, as it arcs from the surreal bubblegum tempos of "Diznee" and "Marianne," thru the extended dreamscapes of songs like "192014," and out to the free-wheeling catharsis of "Blackout" and "Fwee." Take the journey.
