In Loving Memory of Annie Southworth

Annie

Panache lost one of our oldest agents and colleagues this past week, our dear friend Annie Southworth. Annie had worked with Panache for nearly a decade, and our friendship spanned over 15 years. When she joined forces with Panache, she brought such powerful wisdom, strength and experience to our very young fledgling booking agency. Together we became a power house of a booking team, that was being led by women. When she joined the agency she brought over bands like Oh Sees, No Means No, Kelley Stoltz, Fresh and Onlys and many others to our roster. She was a warrior for all womankind. Her utter love of music, vitality for life and resilient attitude helped form the foundation that Panache thrives on today. The world has suffered a great loss with Annie’s passing. Too soon. #fuck cancer #getyourbodieschecked #tellyourlovedonesyoulovethem

Hand Habits LA Weekly Feature

Hand Habits is a project from Meg Duffy, an L.A. singer and guitarist from upstate New York who has played with Weyes Blood, Mega Bog and Kevin Morby. The songs on Hand Habits’ 2017 album, Wildly Idle (Humble Before the Void), are generally laid-back indie-pop reveries, with such gentle ballads as “Flower Glass” and “Actress” alternating with occasional arty interludes like the sound collage of murmuring voices “Greater L.A. (Scene).”

Tim Presley Talks White Fence, DRINKS, Collaborations, and More

Tim Presley is one of our favorite artists here at WMF for a host of reasons: his steady quality musical output under the White Fence moniker, the significant role he played in a crucial era of post-punk mainstay The Fall, and his contributions as one half of DRINKS are three of those reasons, but there are even more topics we’ve been eager to cover with Tim. Curious about his diverse musical endeavors as well as his upcoming 2019 album, we recently had to the pleasure of conversing with Tim about these subjects and others, including his visual art, past collaborations with Jack Name and Ty Segall, and his return to simple, melodic songwriting.

Surfbort's Friendship Music is Featured on The Mercury News 'Best punk rock albums of all time?'

Who better to talk punk rock with than John Doe of X?
Thus, I used the occasion of X’s return to San Francisco to chat up the legendary X man about his all-time favorite punk albums. He was definitely game, but he broadened the topic to include records that influenced him as a punk-rock musician.

Alt Citizen

Alt Citizen Premieres Surfbort's Music Video 'Dope'

Staying sober never seemed so cool. In Surfbort’s latest music video, “Dope”, lead singer Dani Miller sings through her mascara stained tears about leaving drugs behind. She stumbles down the Hollywood walk of fame and straight into her lover’s tinfoil clad arms in a DIY home-video haze (directed by Gilbert Trejo). It’s a slower, more melodic approach than their typical balls to wall punk we all know and love. Subverting society’s beauty standards and social norms amidst coming out about her relationship with drugs, “Dope” is arguably Surfbort’s most personal release to date. Watch below.

Surfbort, first album in all friendship

Opening for Iceage, Surfbort Is Riding the Freak Wave

The Brooklyn-based quartet is visually and musically stunning, to say the least, and singer Dani Miller is like no one else in rock music right now. Perhaps this is why ex-Strokes and current Voidz member Julian Casablancas snatched them up for his Cult Records label in October of 2017 and put out their new record, Friendship Music, late last month.

Surfbort’s Dani Miller is the friendly, burrito-puking queen of punk

Dani Miller is the puking punk princess bringing friendship and music to the world. The frontwoman of Surfbort, Miller and her band recently released the aptly titled Friendship Music, Surfbort’s first record on Julian Casablancas’ Cult Records. “It’s a record to be there for everyone, be a friend for anyone in need. It’s our response to these wild-ass times,” Miller describes.

Surfbort’s Dani Miller Is All About Love

Dani Miller, lead singer of Brooklyn-based punk band Surfbort, seems to specialize in shock and awe. Between the band’s music videos—which have depicted Miller as a diabolical cherub who murders straight-laced businessmen—and her rollicking stage presence during live performances, it’s fair to label the 25-year-old a bit of a provocateur. And in the age of the vulgar rhetoric of the Trump administration, doesn’t it make sense to be equally loud and uncouth in resisting?

The debut album for New York punk band Surfbort, called Friendship Music, will drop on Oct. 26.  So to celebrate, Surfbort put on a wild “pre-record release” show in DTLA with plenty of new music as well as some “golden oldies.”

Martin Frawley of Twerps signs with Merge Records, shares video for new song “You Want Me?”

The vibes are strong at Merge headquarters, as today we announce the signing of Martin Frawley. Known to many as a principal member of Melbourne’s beloved-but-now-defunct Twerps, Frawley recently struck out on his own to record an album with Stewart Bronaugh (Angel Olsen, Lionlimb), and the results are just as melodic and touching as his former band’s material, if not more so.

The track, premiering exclusively at Paste today, appears to mark the dissolution of Twerps. Frawley describes “You Want Me?” as “the prequel” to his debut solo album, “explaining why I am where I am, writing what I am.”

Hero Magazine Premieres Surfbort's Music Video for 'Slushy'

“The record is about romance with other freaks,” says Dani Miller, the riotous frontwoman of New York band Surfbort, speaking about their debut LP. Set for release later this month, the album, titled Friendship Music, is exactly that: music created to “be a friend to the masses and make people feel less alone.”

Ohtis is Featured on The 405 Track Of The Day With Single 'Runnin'

Ohtis is a band that has existed in some shape or another for a long while - ever since the core duo of Sam Swinson and Adam Pressley were in high school in fact. They were soon joined by multi-instrumentalist Nate Hahn. Unfortunately, Swinson soon fell prey to that most evil of addictions, heroin, which put distance between him and his musical partners. In 2009, when his problem became devastating, Pressley and Hahn put physical distance between themselves as they moved to far-flung parts of the country. Nevertheless, their tight artistic understanding remained, and they swapped musical ideas over email with no promise or hope of ever letting them see the light of day.
