Whitney Ballen shares "Rainier", her second single off her upcoming record You're A Shooting Star, I'm A Sinking Ship

Posted on July 24th, 2018

Peep The FADER's piece on the new Whitney Ballen single here. Duncan Cooper quotes Ballen recalling her memories and feelings associated with an old partner:


“Mount Rainier tends to show itself on the days we need it most here, at least for me it does,” Whitney, who’s from Washington, says. “It's a casual reminder of the things that linger in an ever-changing world. Rainier was the view from an ex's dining room window (before it was sold for condos), where the housemates would sit and drink crafted coffee most mornings. When things go away — friends, mothers, fathers, houses, partners — we find and hold onto memories through the most mundane things. Luckily, Rainier is still here.”

You could pre-order a tape or CD of You're A Shooting Star, I'm A Sinking Ship before it's release on 8/24 here.


Listen to "Go" the first single off You're A Shooting Star, I'm A Sinking Ship, the upcoming album from Father/Daughter's newest artist Whitney Ballen

Posted on June 25th, 2018

"Go" makes way for new beginnings for Whitney Ballen, the newest addition to the Father/Daughter roster. Her forthcoming record, You're A Shooting Star, I'm A Sinking Ship, combines elements of her two previous releases and is all sowed with unabashedly honest lyrics that make Ballen’s music equal parts visceral, vulnerable, and resilient.

"Her music evokes the the majestic beauty of the Pacific Northwest, an intense stillness broken up by the crashing of internal thoughts. “Go” is jittery and nervous — it sounds like biting your nails and breaking the skin." --Stereogum

The album’s twelve tracks are set perfectly in Ballen’s Pacific Northwest, a place collectively pictured in a romantic mist that blots out its everyday banalities. Vocally, the Washingtonian shares space with the likes of Mirah, Laura Stevenson, and Jenny O. Describing her sound, Seattle Weekly writes, “Imagine Joanna Newsom as a ghost, benevolently haunting a cabin in the woods, and you’ll get an idea...”

You're A Shooting Star, I'm A Sinking Ship will be available on both tape and CD formats and releases on 8/24.

Listen to "Ortega" the fuzz laden single from the new Pllush LP, Stranger to the Pain

Posted on April 24th, 2018

Pleased as pie to share "Ortega" with the world today. Listen to the second single off Pllush's first full-length, Stranger to the Pain, over at The FADER now.

"Guitarist and vocalist Eva Treadway's lyrics are specific, yet painfully relatable, she speak-sings in the second verse, revisiting unsatisfying diary entries from her youth. The charm of the track, however, lies in the chorus, which is generous in sympathy and perspective."

For a limited time, you could pre-order the record or CD with an exclusive Pllush t-shirt, making this the first time the band has had merch available on the web! Stranger to the Pain releases 6/08.

Attic Abasement's Dancing is Depressing is getting a long overdue vinyl treatment

Posted on March 6th, 2018

Having been the driving force of Attic Abasement for over a decade now, Mike Rheinheimer, a Rochester, NY native has amassed an extensive back catalog of lo-fi albums and EPs -- each one distributed via Bandcamp and short-run CD-Rs, and it was through those means that Attic Abasement's name became an underground phenomena. On April 6, 2018, Father/Daughter is proud to reissue Attic Abasement's seminal album, Dancing Is Depressing, digitally and on vinyl for the first and only time. Not only that, Dancing Is Depressing (Expanded Edition) will feature a pair of songs that originally appeared on local Rochester compilation albums.
