Karen Meat is a pop rock project of Arin Eaton based in Iowa. You’re An Ugly Person, Karen Meat’s recent April 2018 LP, features collaborative tracks with Eaton and Dana Telsrow. Their theatrical live sets ooze with memorable 80s-inspired beats, honest and bright vocals, guitar solos by Dana, and coordinated outfits. The band personifies a moody character, a sequined oversized sweater, crooning melodies and lyrics of a bored generation.
Out August 3rd on Don Giovanni Records, SadBad is the second full-length by Izzy True. It’s a record about death and getting dumped at the end of the world. The songs were mostly written in Chicago in an apartment on the 11th floor of a tall building that would eventually turn out to have bedbugs and to which True can no longer return because it is no longer rented by people they love. That music was then carried back to upstate New York where it was subjected to TOTAL INSTRUMENTATION courtesy of the True’s dear friends and collaborators, Angela Devivo and Kyra Skye. SadBad was then further illuminated via guest appearances by Sheer Mag’s Kyle Seely and multi-instrumentalist Curt Oren. The record will be released digitally and also as a pack of stickers with a complimentary download code. Bless this mess.
