VIDEO PREMIERE: Impose premieres Karen Meat’s “Pizza & Beer”

Impose premieres Karen Meat & the Players‘ new video for “Pizza & Beer” from their debut cassette Karen Meat & the Computer (Red Nude Tapes):

Karen Meat and her crew of Players and Computers provide the minimalist audio, and visuals for the “Pizza & Beer” video that involves a mess of PBRs, Miller Lites, Budweisers, and delivery pizza, and a predominately fixed camera on a tripod. The self-aware states of eating too much, and drinking too much are explained in a kind of honesty heard in the manner of west coast style indie girl rock that can be heard from the Southern California coasts, through the Bay Area circuits, and to the north left scenes of Seattle. The song on the surface has a catchy and funny mode while there is an autonomous statement that lies beneath the slacker-like minimalism. The law tables of attraction and affection are overturned with an autonomy mission that says ‘take me as I am’ in the lyrical, and conceptual subtext, heard loud and clear by the final tongue in cheek line,”I’ll get really thin, maybe you’ll like me then”.

Pop Matters reviews Christian Lee Hutson’s album ‘Yeah Okay, I Know’

Pop Matters reviews Christian Lee Hutson‘s sophomore full-length Yeah Okay, I Know, out now on CD, vinyl and digital formats on Trailer Fire Records.

A quiet confidence exudes from Hutson’s grit-tinged vocal as he handles the miniature journey crafted by the rollicking folk-influenced opener…In the two years since his debut album, he has become more relaxed in his skin as an artist…The album has shown remarkable growth for Hutson, especially in the line of production and crafting his own muted instrumental atmosphere.

Bucket Full of Nails shares Karen Meat’s “Pizza & Beer” video

Bucket Full of Nails shares Karen Meat‘s new video for “Pizza & Beer”:

Completely embodying the ethos of Couch By Couchwest, Iowa’s Karen Meat understand the importance of carbohydrates as well as the quickness with which one can pass out after succumbing to the power of “Pizza & Beer” in their new video. A perfect song title for a Friday, don’t you think? The middle track from the band’s five-song debut EP, Karen Meat & the Computer, the sonic indifference of “Pizza & Beer” is best served cold.

The Prelude Press reviews Field Division’s EP ‘Reverie State’

The Prelude Press reviews Field Division‘s debut EP Reverie State, rating it a 4/5:

Field Division’s new EP, Reverie State takes you to another state of mind within the first song, “Faultlines,” and doesn’t let go until it fades out four songs later. The EP itself starts off soft and soothing, but with vocal harmonies and instrumentation that are also eerie and haunting…

Heartbreaking Bravery shares Karen Meat’s “Pizza & Beer” video

Heartbreaking Bravery shares Karen Meat‘s new video for “Pizza & Beer”:

Occasionally there are days when the floodgates open and all that you’ve managed to miss over the past few weeks swarms its way into the surging current. Today was one of those days. More than 30 great items materialized…The list of stunners in between included…Karen Meat & The Computer’s “Pizza & Beer“.

Montgomery Advertiser interviews Christian Lee Hutson

Montgomery Advertiser catches up with Christian Lee Hutson for an interview in advance of Sunday’s show at The Sanctuary.

The slightly awkward banter from Hutson (who admits he is “ironically” shy) is what fans can expect when he plays at The Sanctuary in Montgomery on Sunday…While his lyrics and song titles may suggest otherwise (“I Do Mean Well,” “They’re All Gonna Hate Me”) Hutson has a confidence in performances. And he needs it as he spends most of his time on the road.
