Lemonade Shoelace will release debut EP Do Whatever Makes You Happy on April 28.

I knew I wanted to make something bold and colourful with this project. Not just visually, but music you have to listen twice to. I love music where every time you listen to it, you hear something else in the song. Interesting music.”

Internet Friends – Dressed to Kill

Internet Friends will release debut album Dressed to Kill on May 5.

“It’s time to fall in love with an album again. It’s time to start fan accounts on all social media. The kind of debut that comes every ten years. Internet Friends release a collection of songs that will fundamentally shake up the indie music scene. Dressed To Kill is the granddaddy of debut albums and it’s now your turn to take over and care for this record.”

Shit Present – What Still Gets Me

Shit Present will release album What Still Gets Me on May 5 through Specialist Subject.

Weathers – Are We Having Fun?

Weathers will release album Are We Having Fun? on May 5 through Sumerian Records.

With our new album, we wanted to not try so hard. Instead we wanted to dig deep from our past and pull from music we listened to growing up. In the end, we got a body of work that’s a little heavier, more raw, and way more emotional and honest than anything we’ve done in the past.”
