TGIF! "Elevator Eyes" premieres on The Le Sigh!

We're stoked to announce the official premier of our track Elevator Eyes on The Le Sigh today!

"The first few days of warm weather after a long winter are exhilarating. You can FINALLY say goodbye to long underwear and puffy coats and soak up the much-needed Vitamin D. It should be a glorious time to bask in the heat before it gets too hot, but your bliss is interrupted when someone hurls a "Hey beautiful" or "Why don't you smile?" your way. Ah yes, spring and summer also mean that the infuriating catcalling season is upon us! Two years ago, we were given Tomboy's "Sweetie" from THE LE SIGH Vol. I to blast while ignoring unwarranted comments from strangers. Today, we have The Pretty Greens' "Elevator Eyes" for channeling our frustration."

The official review and write-up is over here: 

We also made a couple of new friends today, and found out about a radio show called RIOT! based out of Tel Aviv at a station there called, KZRadio! You can check out Nitzan Pincu's programme and some of her latest show archives here:

If you have trouble translating the web page (we suggest using Chrome to translate), you can click the third icon from the top of the page for SHOWS and to select Nitzan's show - just click on Riot! and a list of her recent shows will appear. So cool!

We also have a bit to announce coming up, including our tour dates with our amazing pals and label mates on Negative Fun in Greensboro, NC's Daddy Issues!  It's gonna be a great spring and summer, guys! Also in the news - Boston made it official, and it's going to be Riot Grrrl Day on April 9th every year in honor of Kathleen Hannah's visit to speak there this year on this day. NYC of course had it's own rebuttal via the Gothamist's Lauren Evans

"The mayor of Boston has officially declared today "Riot Grrrl Day," in honor of Kathleen Hanna's appearance in that city this evening. Very cool, Boston, but guess what? Today's Riot Grrrl Day here in NYC, too, because Rebel Girls don't wait for mayors to sanction their goddamn holidays."

February Records "5" Compilation - AVAILABLE NOW!

The Pretty Greens' song "Ghosts" was released on February Records fifth year anniversary compilation at the beginning of February 2015. This is a brand new song that was written last October 2014 at Kool's InDaRed Studios space (the basement of her house) and is *exclusive* to this compilation release. We want to remind everyone about this really fantastic compilation because it's limited to only 100 copies for individuals who are interested in the stamped CD case and the zine together, and also - we're on it!  We've included an embed of the album below. Have a listen:

New the Pretty Greens EP - coming soon!

Hello everyone! The Pretty Greens have been holding off on playing shows for a while because we wanted to take some time to record some brand new songs. We've been talking to a friend who is going to help us release a whole EP of the Pretty Greens' songs. We'll have more news on the EP and the songs included soon (and believe us when we say, we are really excited to share the news), but in the meantime - here are a couple of details about the EP:

  • We have a brand new song on the EP that we've never played live
  • The EP will feature six recordings, Tiny Locket included!
  • The artwork is by the super amazing Tuesday Bassen
  • It's a colored cassette and will also be limited edition
  • We recorded the songs right here in Philadelphia!
