Fat Music For Fest People VII!

Welp, it’s time for FAT’s annual pilgrimage to our Nation’s repository for excess stupidity: Florida. That’s right, Fest is upon us. So, wade through the sea of unkempt beards and warm PBR to our booth at The Prefest Flea Market (on Wednesday) or at The Fest Flea Market (on Friday), and you’ll be rewarded handsomely. We’ve got our yearly Fest Music For Fest People comp – this year with 5 unreleased tracks! We’ll also have some other rare vinyl, San Francisco and European record store editions, a super limited Fest shirt, and some other merch that we aren’t legally allowed to discuss. Oh, and by the way, this ain’t just about us hooking you up with a ton of cool shit. A bunch of our bands are playing both Tampa and Gainesville, so go check them out!

Darius Koski – New Song Premiere!

Darius Koski’s diverse new album, What Was Once Is By And Gone, comes out in just two weeks, and is up for pre-order now! Today, Brooklyn Vegan is premiering the second single, the Americana roots-based album opener “Black Sheep.” Here, you’ll hear wisps of The Kinks and shades of Johnny Cash, specifically during his acclaimed American Recording series. “Since I was a little kid, I’ve always listened to every genre of music,” says Koski, noting that his genre-less writing approach has long been embraced by his beloved punk band, Swingin’ Utters. “We’d always have one song on the album that was a little bit out there,” says Koski, taking pride in the fact that he’s been writing songs that divert from people’s preconceived notions for his entire career. You’ll be able to hear his latest opus, What Was Once Is By And Gone, live this November, as he’ll be touring with a full band opening for the Swingin’ Utters. Dates and info here!

The Lillingtons – Stella Sapiente – Out Today!

The first Lillingtons full-length in over a decade is out today! A Fat Wreck Chords debut: Stella Sapiente, a title that vocalist-guitarist Kody Templeman says roughly translates to “wisdom of the stars”…a phrase that proves apt given his claim that it’s “centered around secret societies, astrology, and the occult.” Intrigued? You can absorb all of this by heading to YouTube, Spotify, or Apple Music to listen to the entire album. Better yet, get yourself to Florida where they’ll be performing their last two shows this year. Then, check out a trio of reviews: here, here, and here!

Listen to The Lillington’s new album NOW!

The most misunderstood card in the Tarot is the 13th card of the Major Arcana, Death, which should not be taken literally. Rather, it signifies a letting go of the past, in order to evolve without limitations. The Lillingtons are a band that has never found much interest in the mundane. Their 12 song opus is filled with pulpy vignettes steeped in intrigue, unraveling mysteries, conspiracies, and cloak-and-dagger operations, while bashing through buzzy, pop-focused punk songs. We’ve previously released “Insect Nightmares” and “Zodiac,” but today you can finally hear the album in its entirety over at Uproxx! On October 13, as we approach an enigmatic day, we will celebrate the release of The Lillington’s latest offering, their first full-length in 11 years, Stella Sapiente.
