Ribbon Stage "My Favorite Shrine" 7" EP (2020)
Details: Ribbon Stage debut 5-track EP (45 RPM). Released in 2020 on K Records. New stock.
Description: 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.
Features 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.
The best love songs aren't really about a romance. Dolly mixing candied pleasure, fuzzed pressure, and a little pain enshrined in place.
