Ribbon Stage

My Favourite Shrine EP

K Records

Released: 14th August 2020

7"£7.99 Buy Now In Stock. Dispatched tomorrow.

The best love songs aren't really about a romance. Dolly mixing candied pleasure, fuzzed pressure and a little pain jump on the bed car ride to the beach cry in the driveway til it falls like ribbons all around, enshrined in place. 5 tracks 45RPM . Ribbon Stage are a trio from NYC with no small amount of love for the noise pop days of Dolly Mixture and the Shop Assistants. The group does perfectly what only punks playing pop music can do- create chaotic noise in tandem with the sweetest hooks and most sophisticated nihilism. Ribbon Stage makes noise pop so catchy you swear you've heard before then can't get out of your head. Featuring Dave Sweetie (Ratas del Vaticano, Tercer Mundo, Exotica, and Pobreza Mental) as well as scene stalwart Jolie M-A (Juicy II, Boys Online) and newcomer Anni Hilator. Recorded by Sweetie on a cassette 4 track in Brooklyn NY and mixed by Capt. Tripps Ballsington in Olympia WA. This release continues the rich tradition of DIY bands crafting instant pop hits entirely on their own terms, which has long been the hallmark of the International Pop Underground series. Look for the video for singles “Favorite Girl”, “Cry in the Driveway”, and “Personal Hell” as well as a Fall West Coast tour, if touring is at all still possible in the new future. Whatever happens it is quite assuring that w hatever these times may bring bands can still put out music as good as this EP. Tracklist 1. Favorite Girl 2. Rid Myself 3. Cry in the Driveway 4. Personal Hell 5. Reasons Why.
