Our beloved Redettes (Marquette, MI) will be on the road for the next few days. See Tour Dates for more information. Throughout 2011 The Redettes tirelessly toured the Midwest, East Coast and Great Plains states. Their debut album Ed has been selling steadily and a second pressing will surely be in order in 2012. The record also ranked #4 in the Top 40 listing in the current issue of Big Takeover Magazine. Here’s what BTO had to say:
“...the trio’s [debut album, Ed] is a trans-generational hookup between Joe Jackson Band and New Pornographers… they play refreshingly reductive, rousing pop… they’re upstanding, up-tempo, uproarious, and upstaging other new wave/power pop outfits… they transcend trite indie lyrical fare, too”.
Tom Tom Magazine seeks to raise awareness about female percussionists from all over the world and hopes to inspire women and girls of all ages to drum, all while strengthening and building the community of otherwise fragmented female musicians. The magazine recently featured an interview with Phratry Records’ LKN/Palo Verde on Tom Tom Television. See video below.
