Dry your tears, fanatees; the Year of the Manatee is almost upon us! BRNDA's sophomore full-length hits 'shelves' (do people still have shelves?) this Thursday (July 30th), so get your snacks ready. Featuring eight new cuts bound to bring you a smile and make you question your human exceptionalism, YotM will be released on limited swirl cassettes, with artwork done by the band, as well as digital downloads right from our store. Cool! BUT WAIT, that's not all: pre-order your copy of YotM now, and receive a special-edition BRNDA themed postcard straight from Babe City, to tell your old friends about your new favorite band. Do it! Do it now!
And if you're still on the fence, you can jam two advance cuts from YotM on respected internet publications Impose Magazine (from Brooklyn, cool) and WAMU's Bandwidth (from DC, super cool). First, album closer 'Snacks' went to the Kings County, and Impose had this to say: '...finding those in between points where you’re hearing everything just enough will make you privy to a surprisingly sophisticated song.' Hell yeah, BRNDA taking NYC by surprise! Check that shiz here.
Next, Bandwidth explored the album's second single, 'Go Bi', and discussed the blurred lines (wait, not 'Blurred Lines', gross) of sexuality amidst a breakup. Without giving too much away, read Dave and John's take on the track and spin to make your own decisions right here.
So you're sold now, right? Go to our store and scoop your copy of YotM. As usual, you can waive shipping costs by putting in the promo codes 'BCDC' and 'SNACKS', the former allows you to pick up at the world-famous Babe City and the latter we'll bring your copy to the release show at Black Cat this Thursday.
Oh, that's right: come party with us at Black Cat this Thursday 7/30, for a special Babe City Records double-header. BRNDA and Den-Mate together on one stage, along with Baltimore's excellent Wildhoney, for $10. RSVP on Facebook here, and RSVP with your hard earned dollars here.
