This Will Destroy You

Formed in the early 00’s, THIS WILL DESTROY YOU have spent the last decade and a half touring the planet relentlessly between recording studio albums and core members Jeremy Galindo and Chris King scoring various films, television, culinary, and other creative entertainment projects in their relative downtime.

The band initially broke in the United Kingdom in spite of their home base at the time being almost 5,000 miles away. 2006’s debut album “Young Mountain” was proclaimed “Album of the Year” in Rock Sound by (then) editor Darren Taylor, igniting curiosity, interest, and touring opportunities unimaginable to that point. It was also during this time that the band’s label stateside began lining up synchronization opportunities that sowed the seeds for what was to come.

From 2016-2018, the band was able to successfully stage special 10th anniversary shows and tours celebrating “Young Mountain” and “Self-Titled” at high-capacity, sold out gigs around the globe, punctuated by being hand-picked by The Cure to perform in front of tens of thousands at the band’s 40th anniversary concert in London’s historic Hyde Park. On the front end of that cycle, Galindo and King also managed to successfully pull off writing and recording the ambitious score to the most talked-about new restaurant of 2018, Los Angeles, Calfornia’s Vespertine.

Rather than rest on the laurels of an enormous, two-year victory lap around the globe, THIS WILL DESTROY YOU will drop their fifth studio full-length album on September 28, 2018.

Tacocat

The four actual best friends-Emily Nokes (vocals, tambourine), Eric Randall (guitar), Lelah Maupin (drums), and Bree McKenna (bass)-came together in their teens and early baby twenties and coalesced into a band eight years ago, and you can feel that they’ve built both their lives, and their sound, together. Hanging out with Tacocat and listening to Tacocat are remarkably similar experiences, like the best party you’ve ever been to, where, instead of jostling for social position, everyone just wants to eat candy and talk about Sassy Magazine, sci-fi, cultural dynamic shifts, and bad experiences with men.

Tacocat’s third studio album, Lost Time (an X-Files reference, doy), is their first with producer Erik Blood. “I would describe him generally as a beautiful wizard,” Nokes said, “who, in our opinion, took the album to the next level. Wizard level.” Blood’s sounds are wide and expansive, bringing a fullness to the band’s familiar sparkling snarl. The Tacocat of Lost Time are triumphantly youthful but also plainspoken and wise, as catchy as they are substantive. “Men Explain Things to Me” eviscerates male condescension with sarcastic surf guitar. On “The Internet,” they swat away trolls with an imperiousness so satisfying you want to transmogrify it into a sheetcake and devour it: “Your place is so low/Human mosquito.”

One of feminism’s biggest hurdles has always been that it isn’t allowed to be fun. Tacocat gives that notion precisely the credence that it deserves, ignoring it altogether and making fun, funny, unselfconscious pop songs about the shit they’re genuinely obsessing or groaning over: Plan B, night swimming, high school horse girls (“they know the different breeds of all their favorite steeds!”), the bridge-and-tunnel bros who turn their neighborhood into a toilet every weekend. And, eight years in, Tacocat have built something bigger than themselves. They’ve fostered a feminist punk scene in Seattle so fertile it’s going national and rendering the notion of the “girl band” even more laughable than it already was. There are no “girl bands” in Seattle anymore. There are just bands and everyone else. “Women,” Nokes jokes. “They’re just like us!”

Lyrics Born

Lyrics Born relocated to the United States from his birthplace of Toyko, Japan right around the time Hip Hop was exploding on the East Coast. From the moment he heard Sugar Hill Gang’s 1980 classic “Rapper’s Delight,” the Bay Area Hip Hop luminary knew he’d found his calling. Twenty-five years later, LB has obliterated the stereotypes of what an MC is “supposed to” look like and captured the hearts of countless fans who gravitate to his distinctive voice. He’s now the only Asian-American MC to release 10 studios albums and the first to play major music festivals like Coachella and Lollapalooza.
