Members of Dum Dum Girls, Blouse, Terry Malts performing jangle-pop covers at Sarah Records Nite 6.21.15

Members of Dum Dum Girls, SISU, and Blouse go halfsies on a new band, Boys Will Be Girls, for Part Time Punks' Sarah Records Nite at The Echo this Sunday night.

Watch Boys Will Be Girls performing covers of the twee outfits Heavenly and Field Mice to commemorate Sarah Records, one of the seminal labels that carried DIY spirit and anti-capitalist politics through the wake of the '90s with the power of guitar jangle.

There will be no creative liberties taken with these covers, as Sandra Vu (Dum Dum Girls/SISU) mentions: "We are staying faithful to the originals, so you can expect lots of harmonies and jangly guitars."

Corey, composed of Terry Malts members, will also perform select songs from the Sarah Records catalogue. Hungry Beat! DJs and Michael Stock of KXLU 88.9 FM/Part Time Punks will be spinning choice picks from the label, too.

Sarah Records was notable for its main contributors Clare Wadd and Matt Haynes and short-lived span from 1987 to 1995, effectively shutting down after its 100th release, the compilation album and booklet There And back Again Lane. The Bristol-based label survived a period of transition in music formats (vinyl to CD) and criticized the then-sexist attitudes of the music press. A history of Sarah Records can be found on their updated official site. Sarah Records Nite begins 10 PM with $8/$10 Advance/Door cover. - Ryan Mo

Stream SISU "Harpoons"

We've been following the evolution of Sandra Vu as a fully-formed artist ever seen she mesmerized us with her debut EP "Light Eyes", and now she's gracing us with the anonuncement of her upcoming full-length Blood Tears, which has a set release of September 17th via Mono Prism Records. Vu comes across as an exciting and visceral performer in first single "Harpoons", a scorching pop record that starts with a morose tone before it builds into a towering chorus that rattles with a lavish wash of swirling guitars embroidered by an impenetrable synth pulse. If you want to catch her live, she's part of the next Part Time Punks at La Cita on August 30th.

Stream: SISU, 'Light Eyes' EP

Fronted by Dum Dum Girls’ Drummer, Sandra Vu, SISU blends gloomy synth-pop, shoegaze and electronic rock. Their latest effort, ‘Light Eyes’ EP, will be released on cassette by Burger Records this month. The opening song, “Two Thousand Eyes,” layers lo-fi drum loops, gritty guitars, sparkling synth leads and ghostly harmonies that swirl like ordered chaos. The title track, “Light Eyes,” grabs you right away with it’s catchy hook and tribal groove. The soundscapes ebb and flow throughout the EP, and descend into more experimental territories at times, while still maintaining the doom-like moodiness juxtaposed with hopeful pop melodies. SISU is currently on tour supporting Marnie Stern, with a full length expected later this year. - Jacqueline Caruso
