TINKERBELLES NEW FULL LENGTH !

CONFETTI AT THE BOTTOM - OUT AUG 29TH !


Brian McKinney, Brash Tracks

"Imagine if you will, a world where cake smells like cigarettes and the Happy Birthday song was written by Gang of Four. Yeah, that’s pretty much sums up Tinkerbelles’ new album, Confetti At The Bottom. Seriously, the vinyl is 12” birthday cake splattered with cigarette-scented scratch and sniff labels. And if that makes you hungry, it’s out August 4 on Teepeespeak Records. Luckily you can check out the first single “Ashtrays At Graceland” over at Post-Trash today!

The duo, named after the self-destructive Warhol superstar, emerged on the Chicago indie rock scene in 2014 after the breakup of Gypsyblood, a band which featured both Tinkerbelles, Adam Mohundro (bass/vocals) and Christian Dawson (drums/vocals). They released the provocatively entitled debut EP Fine Asses to critical acclaim with Brooklyn Vegan calling it “paranoid post-punk” and Chicago Reader saying they sounded like “if Wire had set out to be the catchiest band on the planet.”

Once again Tinkerbelles have forged a sonically munificent trash-pop scrapbook. As their debut EP, this full-length was recorded in glorious, stereophonic universal 432hz, which is a sweet conspiracy theory worthy of a Nic Cage National Treasure sequel. Many claim 432hz is the natural frequency of nature, and while our sonic geometry is a little rusty we think you’ll agree it has a more pleasant tone than traditional 440hz. Confetti At The Bottom is a great noise-pop album. It’s a tremendous album. Tinkerbelles have the best albums. Period. For ease of reference, aural correlations could be drawn of Black Lips, Jay Reatard, The Gories, and vintage noise rockers, The Residents. It’s a wild concoction of post-punk, new wave, ’60s psych with some groovy elements of modern pop. If you want to know more you’ll have to read the Book of Secrets. Or download “Ashtrays At Graceland” available now."


TINKERBELLES PLAY 40 SHOWS IN 10 DAYS

JUNE 19TH - 28TH TO START WORLD RECORD

STREAM FINE ASSES 7" VIA PUNKTASTIC

If Fitzcarraldo attempted to move a steamship over a peruvian hill without any promise of rubber or Lewis and Clark had set out west for no reason other than "to see if they could make it" then Chicago's "ugly-pop" duo Tinkerbelles would fit rather nicely in the same nonsensical category. Expecting to play a whopping 40 shows in 10 days, Tinkerbelles will be touring through the midwest June 19th - 28th on The Lagunita's Brewing Company Sponsored "40 Walls Tour".

"We did some research and couldn't find anything on a record yet so we figured we'd try to set the bar sort-to-speak." says drummer/singer Christian Dawson about the record for highest frequency of shows in a 10 day period. "I can imagine show #36 or #37 will get pretty grim." he laughs. "Shit! By show 13 I'll be tapping out for sure!" bassist/singer Adam Mohundro responds with a shit eating grin. They'll be filming the endeavor for an upcoming doc if you can't make it out, but I'd strongly advise to at least check out their limited edition "asparagus scented piss-colored" 7" vinyl Fine Asses ep as I'm sure they'll be non-existent after this tour. Regardless of whether they make it or not, it'd be worth seeing the human-beings in Tinkerbelles turn into gelatinous slime by June 29th.
