DONCAT Shares New Music Video - LA in '83

San Francisco-based psych folk act DONCAT has just shared their new video "LA in '83".

Duncan Nielsen has sported the moniker ‘DONCAT’ since 2013. Since then he’s lived in a vista-abundant neighborhood in San Francisco, CA, just south of Haight-Ashbury. From almost anywhere in his house the eye can reach the eastern edge of the city, as well as downtown. On most days, just on the shoulders of the hill behind the house, fingers of heavy fog quietly creep in. While most would consider the view an inspiration, Nielsen finds it to be a distraction. He focuses his sights inward.

As a teen, he spent the lion’s share of his time channeling classic rock and folk. In junior-high, he gifted Led Zeppelin I at a birthday party and was ostracized. By the time he entered high school, he found himself as the token kid-with-a-guitar: loved by all and known by none. This bolstered his penchant for writing iconoclastic songs, as well as skipping high school to surf alone.

Enjoy DONCAT's new music video, LA in '83.

Where Is My Mind?: Mannequin Pussy

Childhood pals Marisa Dabice and Thanasi Paul formed Mannequin Pussy during their time in New York City. The group went through multiple configurations before bringing in Kaleen Read to take over drumming duties and solidifying their sound with the addition of Colins Regisford (a.k.a. Bear) on bass. The congruous, musical union inspired the band to return to the studio and record the follow-up to its debut LP Gypsy Pervert. Mannequin Pussy had already been building a reputation in the punk/DIY music community as a must-see on billings, and with the release of 2016’s Romantic, they began to garner deserved national/international critical acclaim, which eventually brought them top honors in The Deli Philly’s annual Best Emerging Artist(s) Poll.

Now, the quartet is all set to embark on their first European tour this weekend, and we had a chance to connect with Dabice before the start of this exciting, momentous occasion to talk about her and the band’s past, present, and future. It was a truly enjoyable exchange with the thoughtful Mannequin Pussy frontwoman, which you can check out HERE.

New York's punk/indie sensation T-Rextasy is playing Mercury Lounge with YATTA tonight (May 26th). On their 2016 release Jurassic Punk, T-Rextasy weaves tales of rebellion against bourgeois banalities and defiant self-assurance in the beating of one's "moshing heart," as evidenced in "I Wanna Be a Punk Rocker." - Ethan Ames

While consistently pushing the instrumental pace, the band lyrically explores themes of loneliness, personal loss, substance abuse, etc. Hitting on meaningful subject matter while maintaining a high-energy level, the songs take anthem-esque qualities of reflective relief. Fire in the Radio will be celebrating the album's arrival this evening at Boot & Saddle, where they'll be supported by Digger and Crossed Keys.
