Punk Rock Puma As others have said, Local News Legends is a great band. They wear their influences on their sleeves, taking the best of bands like AJJ, The Mountain Goats, the Taxpayers, etc, and turning it into something new while still being very honest and personal. Great sound great lyrics, great folk punk. Favorite track: No Rehab.

Wechsel Quite possibly my favourite folk-punk band. AJJ is still up there, but LNL feels more personally important to me. While AJJ taught me it's good to feel scared, LNL taught me it's okay to move on, to stumble on the way, and to let go of shitty baggage and become someone you can be proud of.

This is just the perfect music to listen to when you've had a shit day and you want to salvage something good out of it. Pure, raw, punk goodness. Favorite track: Forehead.

"Nice Set" is what you get when toxic masculinity slides its way into your DMs at 3am after the show. So we did what any reasonable group of lady folx trying to navigate a male-dominated music scene in 2018 would do- reclaimed it and beat it into submission with meme status. "Nice Set" is an inside joke that spiralled out of control. It's a collection of songs about love, heartbreak, addiction, the political climate, and the everyday feelings that accompany lifes ebb and flow. If you think that "Nice Set" is about you, you're probably right.

Dan recorded this in his dining room in about 8 hours on a hot and sweaty Wednesday afternoon. There was an old half eaten cannoli on the coffee table and by the time we were halfway done it had mysteriously vanished. Afterwards we celebrated by eating chinese food and smores, in that order, around a campfire. If you listen carefully, you can hear the low rumbling fizz of a can of Polar Seltzer in the background of every track.

Emily sang and wrote the songs. Apes banjoed. Maddy sang the harmonies. It was a fun time 10/10 will do again. If you see us out on the road, make sure you tell us nice set :)
