premiere: Queen of Swords – Rise Instead
Queen of Swords is the new project from Aerin Fogel, formerly of the awesome and severely under-appreciated early 2010's "cave pop" duo the Bitters, who dropped a few legit gems on labels like Captured Tracks + Mexican Summer. Unlike her former group's punchy and infectiously blown-out jam…
mexican summer
Our friends at Mexican Summer just sent over a list of their upcoming releases, and in addition to some pretty rad and extremely limited Record Store Day exclusives (see above) that will be available on Saturday, they've also got some great releases planned in the coming months from the Mantles…
The Bitters | “Travelin’ Girl”
The Bitters' debut LP, East General, is out April 13 via our friends at Mexican Summer. Infectious album highlight "Travelin' Girl" is a brilliantly simple, raucous lo-fi pop throwback that confirms that these two are in fact the "cave pop stars of the future&am…

the bitters | “EAST”
Great new jam from Ben Cook + Aerin Fogel, aka "cave pop stars of the future" the Bitters, taken from their new EAST 7", out now on Captured Tracks: The dank and 'doomy' a-side is slightly unhinged but also super infectious, which is about par for the course for …
video: the bitters + woods | “warrior”
Aerin Fogel of the Bitters rips through the group's jam "Warrior" with the bros from Woods, live at the Captured Tracks/Woodsist fest in Brooklyn last month. Such a great song:

can you keep a secret
Captured Tracks has been on a bit of tear this year. In addition to a handful of solid 7"s (the Mayfair Set, Brilliant Colors, Woods, etc.), Mr. Blank Dogs' label has released two of my favorite 12" EPs of '09 so far: Dum Dum Girls' Yours Alone and now, Wooden Glove,…
