NOTS are a 4 piece, all XX, “nuevo no wavo” band from Memphis, TN. Unpredictable guitars, celestial synths, and punctuated vocals swirl around the repetition of a powerful rhythm section to form a sound and a live show not easily classifiable but entirely addictive. Drummer Charlotte Watson and guitarist / frontwoman Natalie Hoffmann are the band’s two constants throughout a handful of roster changes. NOTS’ current lineup also includes Alexandra Eastburn on synth, an instrument she picked up to join NOTS and to record on their first full-length LP We Are Nots, and bassist Meredith Lones, another new Memphis musician, and the most recent addition to the band. NOTS’ newest punk-noise-psych-collision 7”, Virgin Mary, aggressively follows on the heels of their debut LP, foreshadowing an ever expanding experiment in direction of things to come for the band. Don’t miss out.

Raw, glittering, psychedelic...Olivia Neutron-John is a non-binary, post-bro music/dance declaration of war on the accepted and the expected. Olivia Neutron-John is Anna Nasty on keyboards, bass & voice. Olivia Neutron-John’s self-titled debut full length OLIVIA NEUTRON-JOHN is the artist's first recorded output since 2014’s INJURY TRAIN AND I'M NEVER GETTING OFF IT b/w VULNERABILITY. Emerging
with this album, their sound remains transcendent and meticulous with a newly articulated focus and even
bolder minimalism. A. Nasty returns on keyboards and voice, now writing sinewy bass lines against the steady pulse of a drum machine. Lyrically it is sparse, but laden with meaning. A. Nasty’s vocals are psychedelic yet straightforward, confident but desperate, calculated and unhinged all at the same time.
Ambiguity drives OLIVIA NEUTRON-JOHN - the feeling of imminent danger in nearly going off the rails, just barely kept in line with the order of rhythm. OLIVIA NEUTRON-JOHN draws you into its hypnotic repetition, only to disorient with a catchy line gone awry and into a totally different atmosphere, like Ian
Curtis playing on the moon. The punk sensibilities of O N-J’s dance music ride a delicate balance between chaos and precision. The year is 2019 and fictions of genre and gender are even further behind us, making way for OLIVIA NEUTRON-JOHN.
