Skating Polly – Pretective Boy (The Hey Mr. Version)

(click song title above to listen)

Purveyors of blistering alt-punk they describe as “ugly pop”, this week’s top tune from Tacoma-based step sisters Skating Polly is the most unapologetically catchy little jam yet. “Pretective Boy” comes from their brand new 4th lp, The Big Fit which dropped this week!

“It was just an experiment to see if I could write a good song using my loop pedal and it turned into one of my favorite songs we’ve ever recorded” – Kelli Mayo

Today we feature a damn sweet remix by Dan Molad of Lucius, hear the original version and see the excellent official video (directed & edited by Dave Smith) HERE.

You can see Skating Polly live in concert tonight in Minneapolis – 7th St. Entry, 3/31 Chicago – 4/1 Schubas Tavern, 4/1 Lydia House – Louisville, KY, 4/2 Mahall’s – Lakewood, OH, 4/9 Seattle – The Vera Project, 4/23 – Norman, OK – Norman Music Festival.

Also, look for Kelli to make her Dramatic Television Series debut as regular cast member, Berlice Beaman in the upcoming Hulu/Paramount Television coming-of-age thriller, When the Street Lights Go On! Read more about it HERE. CONGRATS KELLI!

Skating Polly – Nothing More Than A Body

(click song title above to listen)

“Armed with just a homemade bassitar and a pair of backwards facing drum sticks, Skating Polly’s music is as barbed and cutting as the braces on their teeth. Raised on riot grrrl and root beer in the red-state Bible Belt, Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse are far from your typical middle American teenagers.” – Bryn Lovitt – Noisey/Vice.

This week’s top tune is the ripping new single from Skating Polly from their forthcoming album, Nothing More Than A Body. It was produced by former Flaming Lips member, Kliph Scurlock and mixed by Kerry Brown, Brian Liesegang & Kevin Dippold, at the SIX01 artist collective (Greg Dulli, Smashing Pumpkins, Mark Lanegan). The track was written as an existential response to meeting long-time idol Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel and features Peyton on lead vocals. You can read more of that story and check out the video HERE.

The band is currently wrapping up a victorious (their first) tour of the UK in support of Babes In Toyland. Reactions to the shows in Bristol, London & Southampton has been nuts!! You can still catch them tonight at Gorilla in Manchester and tomorrow night at Oran Mor, Glasgow.
