February News: Lake Street Dive, Nada Surf, Mavis Staples, Puddles Pity Party, The Brothers Comatose


Love is most definitely in the air at Port Merch this month, as we are being showered with the kisses of many awesome new releases.

LAKE STREET DIVE has released their latest pop masterpiece, Side Pony, and it is shipping now. As is the custom, they’ve also stocked their online store with lots of new shirts! Visit their new store for more info.

Musical legend MAVIS STAPLES has also released a new album, which is a big deal! Livin’ on a High Note is shipping now, and autographed CDs are available. Mavis also signed a few copies of her amazing book, I’ll Take You There, and they are available for a limited time.

In early March, rock veterans NADA SURF will release their 7th full-length album of original songs, You Know Who You Are. The album is amazing and you need to preorder it on CD or LP now! They’ve also provided us with a limited amount of the 3-LP live album Live at the Neptune Theatre.

Rather than vote for some other clown this fall, we ask that you consider voting the Pity Party. PUDDLES PITY PARTY has thrown his pitiful little hat into the ring and there’s a whole new line of merch including shirts, buttons, and stickers.

THE BROTHERS COMATOSE also have a new album coming in early March. City Painted Gold is now available for preorder on CD or LP.
