Skating Polly‘s New Trick EP featuring Nina Gordon and Louise Post of Veruca Salt drops today via El Camino Media! Produced by legendary producer Brad Wood (Liz Phair, Sunny Day Real Estate, Smashing Pumpkins) New Trick finds Kelli Mayo (17) and Peyton Bighorse (21) joined full-time by brother Kurtis Mayo (20) on drums.
“New Trick features three songs they co-wrote and recorded with Veruca Salt’s co-front women. Veruca Salt’s influence is readily apparent: Opener “Louder in Outer Space” boasts addictive hooks cut from the same cloth as “Seether”-era pop, and the dark, brooding “Hail Mary” showcases their knack for writing harmonies. But the raw lyrics and heartfelt ethos are all Skating Polly’s own.” – Seattle Weekly
AVAILABLE ON: CD/DIGITAL/ETCHED VINYL

Happy Release Day! Columbia Records brings you the latest from Bob Dylan, his first triple album. “Because as Frank Sinatra and Chet Baker and countless others knew, the concise songs of the Songbook era are magical self-renewing energy systems. In the space of just 32 measures, less than a minute, they lay out an idea or narrative, develop it, take it into a different tonality for the new perpective, and return home in a way that makes listeners want to take the ride again” – NPR.
Featuring classics by composers Cy Coleman (“The Best is Yet To Come“), Hoagy Carmichael (“Stardust”), Harold Arlen (“Stormy Weather”), Triplicate moves with great reverence and Dylan sings these at close range and at human scale. Read more HERE!
