Let Me Know Your Moon is Leggy's first release since their debut s/t in 2017 on Damnably Records, which compiled their previous EPs and singles into one remastered release. The record generated buzz from outlets such as Stereogum, Noisey, GoldFlakePaint and The Grey Estates - more than one of which praised the trio's "swaggering punk rock". "This album felt like a long time coming," explained guitarist/vocalist Veronique Allaer of the new record, continuing "I tried to channel that nervous energy into pure adrenaline on the recording. Over the summer of 2019 I went to Antwerp, Belgium to spend a month at my grandparents' home. They had both passed away and their beautiful home was on the market so I went to spend time there before it was sold. I felt a bit secluded and insular during the days there; I wanted to force myself to be creative. Being alone for a month in another country where I didn't speak the language, surrounded by my family's art, decor and clothing was super inspiring. My grandmother was such a special strong woman, the matriarch of our small family." The result is Let Me Know Your Moon, twelve tracks (including the previously released single "Not What You Need") which deal heavily in interpersonal relationships. "The most prominent theme in this album is a relationship where you have to take a step back and ask 'does this person water me? Do I water them?' - meaning, do we help each other grow, are we good for each other? Is there anything more painful than realizing the person you love is no longer good for you?" explains Veronique of the album's overarching themes. Lead single "Eden" contains the album's title in its lyrics, drawing on the album's motifs of questioning fate and how things like horoscopes have the potential to affect all of us - even if only as self-fulfilling prophecies. Formed in 2013, Leggy is Veronique Allaer (guitar/vocals), Kirsten Bladh (bass/vocals) and Chris Campbell (drums).
Rosie Tucker’s songs are worlds unto themselves. They start in conversation with an immediate environment: small, detailed, characters and landscapes drawn vividly, with life and wit. Only as they progress do they reveal bigger themes. "For example, the song ‘Gay Bar’ is about having a good time at a cowboy gay bar in the Valley,” says the Los Angeles-based Tucker, 24, who uses they/them pronouns. “But the sample I used to create the sound at the end was a quote from an old interview Dusty Springfield gave to Gay News in 1970. Her refusal to label her own sexuality just about destroyed her career, though nothing she said would strike anyone as particularly edgy by today's terms, I think." Starting with “Gay Bar” and throughout their new album “Never Not Never Not Never Not,” out March 8, 2019, Tucker’s songs talk with and echo queer, blacklisted, and forgotten female songwriters of the 1960s: Springfield, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Sibylle Baier, Norma Tanega, Karen Dalton. Like them, Tucker uses emotionally rich images of the world, and while the lyrics have political implications, politics are not the first concern of the songs. “I’m a big fan of musical eccentrics,” Tucker says. “The spontaneous approach to music that Erik Satie took: he only ate eggs for a long time. He bought seven velvet suits and tried to start a religion. He composed music toiling in obscurity. “I like art that happens when people toil in obscurity, although I guess that's not my goal right now.”
Guppy is an LA-based sound recognizable for its driving rhythms, catchy melodies and playful lyrics sure to leave you thinking “GUPPY IS MY FRIEND”. The four-piece rock band captures the essence of versatility from their first basement show in Boston, MA to some of the most popular punk rock venues in Los Angeles.
