Swimwear Department

Swimwear Department makes songs about two topics: swimming pools and shopping malls.

The Houston, Texas dance-punk band brings party power reminiscent of Electric Six, DEVO, and The B-52s. Fans frequently join enthusiastic shout-alongs and improvised line dances. Ned Gayle (bass), Jack Gordon (drums), Matt Graham (vocals), and Jeremy Grisbee (keys) have been making music as Swimwear Department since 2017.

One journalist called their music "...refreshingly frivolous proof that you can take subject matter that on the surface level may seem a bit silly and provide emotionally satisfying and even profound experiences."

Socks are murder: the story of Fragile Rock:

Austin-based Fragile Rock has been called “the perfect festival act” by Variety and is the first emo puppet band in history to have both their own NPR Tiny Desk concert and been booed off the stage at America’s Got Talent.

The 9-piece collective of punks and puppets was created in 2014 by Brently Heilbron.
