    Wimps

    Garage Rock

    “Wimps are raw power with nothing in the way. It’s punk rock the way it use to be; short, sharp and loud.” - The Finest Kiss

    “Almost-catchier-than-the-Beatles” - The Stranger

    “Seattle trio Wimps channel all of the soul-crushing minutiae of our everyday lives into deceptively sad, yet infectious punk rock.” - Noisey

    Seattle’s Wimps (Rachel Ratner, Matt Nyce, and David Ramm) are back with their third album, Garbage People, out July 13th on LP, cassette, CD, and MP3! Known all over as one of the premiere “plenty of nonsense” guitar/bass/drum groups, Garbage People finds Wimps taking a sonic leap forward (there’s saxophone, keyboard, and juuuust enough cowbell) and lyrically (subject matter ranges from gender pay inequality, decline of bee populations as a result of climate change, insomnia, and wanting to steal a pizza ... but only if it’s cheese!) 

  • SAVAK

    SAVAK

    Rock

    SAVAK was formed in 2015 by members of The Obits, Holy Fuck, Nation of Ulysses, and The Cops. Their influences range from '60s Texas psychedelia to British pub rock to early-'80s American hardcore.

    Cut-Ups, the new SAVAK record on Ernest Jenning Record Co., consists of 10 immaculate nuggets of primo, left-field rock'n'roll.

    It’s a heavy smorgasbord with results as laudable as one would expect given the pedigree. Cut-Ups is as kaleidoscopic, ambitious and as curious a record as you could hope for.

    Like their debut LP on Comedy Minus One, Best of Luck in Future Endeavors, there’s that instant thing – instant hooks all over, instant choruses – but not cheap instant like the noodles. The flavors on this record have a long finish, with a satisfyingly wide palate.

    There are pristine multi-part harmonies and skronky jazz bits, as well as odd, subtle experiments with Joe Meek-y sound design. There’s that undeniable propulsive groove that many of these guys have become synonymous with. There are also healthy smatterings of garage rock, ‘60s jangle, jazz and psych.

    The devil is in the details on SAVAK records and there are many, many details on Cut-Ups.

    “A potent and pointed agitpop racket which manages to balance the dark and moody with the catchy as fuck.” –Noisey

    “Superior twin-guitar slash action from members of Obits, Make-Up, Holy Fuck et al. Adding Saints-worthy brass on standout Early Western Traders boosts the prevailing Wipers-do-Joe Jackson aura. Four stars!” – Mojo

    “Dread-fueled, post-punk angst tempered with catchy hooks.” –Magnet

    “SAVAK is the band that plays the party after the after party.” –Jersey Beat
