Polythene Pam
Polythene Pam
Polythene Pam are a quirky, upbeat, super entertaining queer girl band. Think TMBG, Violent Femmes, Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Magnetic Fields, and a dash of Beatles in a big ol' eclectic, catchy, musical stew. Tastes of hope, ennui, identity, trans stuff, revenge, and sarcasm. Laugh, dance, and sing along -- fun times guaranteed!
The Sweet Trade
The Sweet Trade
A rousing and roguish pair of performers
Playing songs of their own and their own takes on others
Plucking and strumming and bowing quite gaily
Instruments ending in 'lin and 'ulele
*soft vowel sounds*
*soft vowel sounds*
*soft vowel sounds* is the latest indie-pop solo music project from former Bitesize guitarist/lyricist/primary song writer Julia Serano.

With *soft vowel sounds*, julia offers a rather novel mix of deliciously percussive & dissonant guitar noises, catchy-as-hell melodies, smart yet silly lyrics, unconventional yet oddly endearing vocals, and occasional keyboard & bird squawks. While decidedly contemporary, the quirkiness and charming minimalism of *soft vowel sounds* evokes the spirit of early lo-fi recordings from artists such as Guided By Voices, Liz Phair, Pavement, Beat Happening, Sebadoh, and They Might Be Giants
