Just Announced: Teengirl Fantasy, lucky dragons, Ecstatic Sunshine, and Growing


Teengirl Fantasy
Last night i had a dream and in it teengirl fantasy was playing a special song, just 4 me, and it was like mAgic, and it sounded like rainbow ice cream with cherries on it and mint chocolate chip, and it looked like baby animals and cute boys with nice cars and dreamy eYesz, and it tasted like skittles, but better, like a REAL rainbow, and it felt like angels were singing to me, and it was like my parents didn't set a limit on the amount of time i could go online and go on facebok and send text mesages, and it smelled like fancy perfume that alice has but mom won't let me buy and fresh baked cookies, so good, chocolate chocolate chip, like laundry and freshly mowed grass and it tasted like icing on a birthday cake with those little silver balls in it that dad says are bad for me but i don't care, i don't care anymore because teengirl fantasy was singing TO ME, and it sounded like unicorns plus magic stuff like a good hair day every day, and free make up that mom lets me wear, to the date she lets me go on, with teengirllll~~ *sigh*

lucky dragons
lucky dragons is an experimental music group consisting of Luke Fischbeck and Sarah Rara. Based in Los Angeles, California, the band are noted for their unusual sound, described as having the ability to make "'everyday sounds' become alluringly other".[1]

lucky dragons' performances include live music, video projection, and sounds created in collaboration with the audience. They have performed at the Smell, Echo Curio, Dublab, at major international art institutions and at the 2008 Whitney Biennial.

Ecstatic Sunshine
Ecstatic Sunshine is a Baltimore, Maryland based minimalist punk band. Originally consisting of two members: Dustin Wong and Mathew Papich, Kieran Gillen was later added on electronics and then David Zimmerman was added with the loss of Dustin Wong. Whereas the first three releases were soley guitar based, (Freckle Wars included versions of material from Swirl and Dot, plus new songs) Living and Way began to experiment with electronics.

Growing is a drone music/ambient music band formed in Olympia, Washington, and currently based in Brooklyn, New York. The group was founded in 2001 by Kevin Doria (electric bass guitar), Joe Denardo (electric guitar), and Zack Carlson (drums). Carlson left following their first album, and the band continued as a duo until 2009, when they recruited Sadie Laska to form a new trio. The group has gradually progressed their musical from play slow, instrumental drone pieces through works in noise and ambient music toward more propulsive, rhythm driven music.

Their live shows are consistently known for being very loud, playing straight through their set without break or pause. They have released albums on labels such as Kranky, Animal Disguise, Archive, Megablade/Troubleman, and they are currently on The Social Registry.

At the end of 2007 and the beginning of 2008 Growing released their first two releases for The Social Registry; a 7-inch single for the label Social Club series and a mini-lp entitled Lateral.

Growing began work on a follow up full length for The Social Registry in early 2008 with Brooklyn producer Barry London.
