Hootie Hoo! We have new exciting products and projects popping out of us like blossoms blooming.
Woo Hoo! Ay yi yi! Bad Weather California's first full length album Young Punks makes you hoot and holler. Young Punks is a celebration waiting to happen. Chris Adolf, Adam Baumeister, Joe Sampson, and Logan Corcoran are Denver's pied pipers clanging some kind of beautiful racket leading those who still believe in the power of rock and roll and reminding the rest about the power of letting loose. Young Punks is acid tinged boogie country punk. Adolf's lyrics bring forth imagery of utopian communes full of free spirits and idealist political imagery. It's a record of rootsy optimism and wild humanism.
Bad Weather Cali's frontman Adolf was the man behind The Love Letter Band, who put out a couple full lengths and a couple eps (including one as part of The Pregnancy Series). Bad Weather California is in some ways the yang to TLLB's yin. TLLB was in many ways an experiment with home recording and a small, borderline precious sound (some toy instruments). Bad Weather California is a band in the true sense and focuses on live shows but his many years of focusing on recordings shines through on this excellent and focused album.
Young Punks is gonna make your day better.
When you order the Bad Weather California CD you get a free bonus MP3 AND AND AND you will also get a free new States Rights Records blank notebook. It's our first piece of States Rights schwag and we think they are the most useful schwag yet! Everyone likes a nice little blank notebook for doodles and lists and stuff, yeah? We've always been keen on throwing in secret additional treats in with orders and this is our newest least secret treat we will be throwing in with orders. There are two different cover designs.
We are also proud to unveil today that States Rights has our own direct digital downloads store now. Wherever you see this little icon:
That means you will be directed to our direct digital download store. We will able to offer some slightly better pricing and some exclusive stuff there. It's also better to take middlemen out of the equation, yeah?
Very shortly we will be bringing forth a new album from the Chicago band Cains & Abels. It's called Call Me Up. Here's a little preview.
