Metal Mother to release first new music in five years

NEWS

The now Los Angeles (formerly Oakland)-based one-woman powerhouse Tara Timberman - known as Metal Mother - has announced the release of a new EP "Pagan Jazz," her first new music in five years. Arriving on June 1st, Timberman says, "'Pagan Jazz' is inspired by and written for the warehouse party world and all the absurd and whimsical fairies it attracted. I’ve lost many friends in the last couple years, including many close friends in the Ghost Ship fire. It’s taken everything I have to keep the magic, wonder, and weirdness alive in life."

Peelander-Z shares "You Have Nice Tee Shirts" music video with PopMatters

PREMIERE

"To peel away the layers and explain what's so much fun about the group's particular and peculiar brand of rock 'n' roll is like trying to explain why an ice cream cone or air-conditioned room are refreshing on a hot summer's day." There have been so many attempts to describe Peelander-Z over the years -- Jedd Beaudoin's hot take like this really resonates. Check out the premiere of the music video for "You Have Nice Tee Shirts" (directed by Toto Miranda of The Octopus Project) at PopMatters. The band's ninth album is Go PZ Go, out tomorrow on Chicken Ranch Records.
