Local indie rockers Birdmonster are the new recruits to Fader magazine's little record label. Expect a new release from the band towards the end of this year--and, hmmm, mabye some ink in the magazine I'd imagine? -- Jennifer Maerz

New York, NY: FADER Label, the recording branch of The FADER, is pleased to announce the addition of San Francisco's Birdmonster to its ever-growing roster of top-tier international talent. Joining the ranks of critically acclaimed artists such as Editors and Saul Williams, Birdmonster will be releasing their FADER Label debut in Q2 2008 as a follow up to their 2006 full-length, No Midnight.

Spearheaded by Peter Arcuni, the new untitled album stands to be the band's most compelling work to date. Currently in the studio with producer Tom Schick (Ryan Adams, Rufus Wainwright, Norah Jones), Birdmonster is wrapping production and will unveil select material through live performances around the country highlighted by appearances at this year's SXSW Conference in Austin.

"We are very pleased to be working with the forward thinking group of people at FADER Label", remarked, Peter Arcuni, Birdmonster's creative visionary, "I can't imagine a better fit for us and where we want to take the band in the future."

"We are really excited to be moving forward with such a unique and talented group of artists," said Jon Cohen, President of FADER Label. "We feel they are the perfect addition to our growing roster of emerging and established artists."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
