The RPM 2011 challenge is over (well, officially anyways, but I am still going to work on mixing and remixing my tracks) and that means it’;s time to catch up on the hundreds of press releases in my inbox. So, here are some artists U Outta Know, in this brief PR shout out:
Sabrina Chap – Gender Bending with her new album “Oompa!”
NYC native, Sabrina Chap mixes feminism, vaudeville, and music with her latest release. Also a published author, you can read her work on female self-destruction titled “Live Through This- On Creativity and Self-Destruction.” View her music video for “Never Been A Bad Girl” here. Chap breaks your boxes and blows your mind!
The Kills – Savvy British Rockers release their new album “Blood Pressures” April 5, 2011.
London’s calling you to turn up your radio! Something about the washed out looks and dirty guitars always screams Brit-Underground to me. This duo delivers garage punk for the rebel 2.0. Check out their latest video “Satellite” here.
Trumpet Grrrl – DIY Style in unexpected ways
Hailing from Maryland, Trumpet Grrrl is girl after my own heart. Self producing and recording her work, her debut release, “The Basement Tracks,” showcases her synthesis of vocals, keys, and punchy brass. I feel some new wave influences in her work too. An avid videographer, Trumpet Grrrl’s videos, in addition to her infectious confidence, are an inspiration to all the ladies out there who want to create art without limitations. Check out her video below and her various pop-star covers on youtube. I am floating up!
