Dig Deep LP
While The Clash, and countless other classic punk bands, met in art school, Alex and Jeff of Meat Market met in physics club. Instead of the usual ol' boring tale of grabbing guitars and ditching school to become international recording artists, these cats tutored each other and kept their noses to the grindage.
After passing with flying colors they decided to take an offer from future mates, Ian and Jake, to help them run their farm. Together they grew an abundance of Kale, long before Kale was king-shit-of-fuck-mountain. Inspired by the Sub-Prime Mortgage Crisis, they purchased a decent sized lot of Farmer Mac bonds,with a sub prime loan, and sold the bonds two weeks later,when it jumped up two points.
We all know what happened next: Kale blew up a million times over and our buds had to sell the farm. If one thing held them together it was the shared soreness of losing.
This album is their comeback. Don't call it that though. Read More
The People Are Home
"The Underground Railroad to Candyland is a gloriously democratic, technicolor chaos machine."-The Big Takeover Magazine
The Underground Railroad To Candyland are akin to the Merry Prankster's cross-country voyage of 1966; a ramshackle school bus painted in day-glo rainbow tearing across the desert at 80 miles per hour, on a quest to blur the lines between nihilistic self destruction, art, and society at large.
Jangly guitar leads and bouyant, carefree vocals carry the melodies over a springy, surf-influenced rhythm section, which string together this beastly opus of lo-fi pop-punk gems. Todd Congelliere's (FYP, Toys That Kill, Stoned At Heart)unique songwriting, lyrical sensibilities, and voice shines with the carefree spirit of youth, a vibrant wanderlust that sweeps the old and bitter away in a wash of adolescent enthusiasm and jovial exuberance. Reminding us that while there's always work and life and serious business to attend to, nothing can beat the little moments when we turn our backs and laugh this whole reality thing off as the big joke it really is.
While they've spent years garnering a reputation for their rambunctious, crowd-inclusive live shows, bridging the borders between band and rambling road show, The People Are Home captures the jubilance and vibrancy they possess live.
