New band on EXAG Records : MATERIAL GIRLS (usa)

We’re thrilled to welcome MATERIAL GIRLS on EXAG Records !
Rated Atlanta’s n°1 original band for 2017 by Creative Loafing Magazine, the six-piece outfit featuring members of Slang, Concord America and Chief Scout debuted in late 2016 with just 33 copies of a lathe cut 7-inch record called Funky Frankenstein, and it hadn’t been a year since their first live shows that shook ecstatic crowds with anxious libidinous madness across the southern American States.
Their first single ‘Drained‘ was recently picked by The Line of Best Fit:
“Material Girls explore ’80s goth-rock, cabaret-tinged experimental music, Latin jazz & more, all filtered through the group’s scuzzy DIY punk roots.”

And featured by ThinkBabyMusic :  “These ladies cast their spells with the power of mystery, and a witch’s brew to hone in a ‘desperate and arrogant’ sound. Their swag and theatrics may grab fans by the hair, but their tight musicianship will bitch-slap any doubters.”

Boasting tenebrous bass lines, libidinous horns, snarling guitars, and perpetually rotating vocalists, this sextet has proven that the “rock ‘n roll band” has become a tired algorithm in a world where the populous is scrolling and swiping their lives away, and these six darlings invite you straight into their late night life of sequined gowns, high heels, cheap cherry lipstick and wine-drunk calamity, all mingling together in a glamorous débauché manner.

MATERIAL GIRLS will be playing SXSW next year to promote their first album to be recorded in October this year, the second single ‘Under The Sun’ will follow this first single ‘Drained’, and in the mean time you can go look for a glittering plastic dog collar to wear when they finally bring their madcap live show to your town, it might well be sooner than expected.

VIDEO PREMIERE : DAVE COCKS – BORDERS

DAVE COCKS ‘Borders’

 

With their BLACK’EX split series, Exag Records is creating interesting connections between artists from around the world. The concept is to take two artists from two different countries and release their music on a beautiful 10” vinyl. BLACK’EX #1 brings Dave Cocks from Italy (better known as one half of cold wave duo Throw Down Bones) together with French artist Monolithe Noir, who now resides in Belgium. The (not so Italian sounding) artist Dave Cocks created a dark track with the appropriate name ‘Borders’, which now comes with a fascinating video. The release is out today July 19th, order your copy here!

VIDEO PREMIERE : OKEY DOKEY – LOW RENT // BLUE SKIES

PREMIERE on D0512

As far as we know, psychedelic doo-wop didn’t exist as a genre until Okey Dokey started making it.

The Beach Boys grazed the surface during the famously aborted Smile sessions, but they certainly didn’t make it a principle vocation as the Nashville, Tennessee duo do. Composed of guitarist Johny Fisher and visual artist Aaron Martin, Okey Dokey already staked claim to that ground with their first single, “Wavy Gravy“. Their debut album, 2017’s Love You, Mean It proved that the formula worked on a full-length scale.

Today, the band has shared a brand new music video for their latest single, album high-water mark “Low Rent // Blue Skies”. The music video, which was filmed and directed in Austin by local photographer Pooneh Ghana, stars Austin comedian JT Kelley as some sort of misbehaving entrepreneurial cowboy, a banana stand, and Okey Dokey. If that description sounds equal parts awesome and confusing that’s because it is. Watch the music video premiere of Okey Dokey’s “Low Rent // Blue Skies,” below.

BLACK'EX Split Series

PREMIERE : BLACK’EX Split Series

 

Belgian label EXAG Records announce the arrival of their BLACK’EX split series and Backseat Mafia are honoured to provide you with the premiere.

The concept for the series is to take two artists, from two different countries, press on top vinyl and in doing so create connections between artists from around the world, building bridges between countries that otherwise may never exist. EXAG will also accompany the shows with a series of live shows.

#1 brings Dave Cocks from Italy, better known as one half of cold wave duo Throw Down Bones together with French artist Monolithe Noir who now resides in Belgium.

‘Borders’ is the first solo released by Dave Cocks and focuses on his personal journey of fleeing the centre and finding himself at the peripheral. ‘Labegum’ is the result of Antoine Pasqualini’s AKA Monolithe Noir breaking away from old habits and traditional instruments to experiment with sound whilst maintaining an ambience fans have come to know and love.

Through this series, EXAG aim to push the boundaries, disregard genre stereotypes and produce music that everyone will come to know and love.

Okey Dokey ‘Either Or, It’s All The Same’ Premiered by Wonderland

Nashville super psych group get weird in new video

Disintegration and rebirth is part of the natural order of things. This statement holds true for Okey Dokey, a Nashville based psych collective made up of the remnants of past and present bands The Weeks, Sol Cat and Morning Teleportation, conjuring up a sound firmly at home in the future.

Their latest offering is the sultry 60’s garage inspired “Either Or, It’s All the Same”. Speaking on the video the boys said “This video came to be when our close friend and guru, Paul, was saying that he had never once been asked to be in a video in all of his years as an industry man. Johny and I obviously felt the need to help him out. What better way than a home invasion! That was all before the joint kicked in and we decided to hit another dimension on the way home.” Be prepared to get very weird.
