In Loving Memory of Annie Southworth


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 Is Your ‘Pissed Off’ Sad Indie Soundtrack Of Early 2019

If you know the name Meg Duffy, there’s a decent chance you read guitar magazines. The indie singer-songwriter, who started recording and performing as Hand Habits in 2017, made a name among guitar-heads as a long-time support player in Kevin Morby’s band. Though you wouldn’t necessarily know that Duffy is a guitar hero after listening to Placeholder, Hand Habits’ standout second album, due March 1.

Singer-Songwriter Jess Cornelius Is Reborn In A Bathtub In Her ‘No Difference’ Video

Aussie singer-songwriter Jess Cornelius has released a gorgeous new single, “No Difference.” Cornelius, who formerly played with the Melbourne band Teeth & Tongue, wrote “No Difference” before making the move from Australia to Los Angeles. In the spirit of massive, cross-Pacific moves, the song is both nostalgic and longing for a fresh start. For the song’s visuals, Cornelius enlisted the help of friends and acquaintances in Melbourne.

19 New Songs Out Today

Singer-songwriter Jess Cornelius, who used to be part of Australian group Teeth & Tongue, has just released her debut solo single, “No Difference.” A nice piece of anthemic guitar pop, the song’s video focuses on eyes and has Jess singing from the bathtub. “We wanted to introduce the water element because of its cleansing/rebirthing properties, but water is also destructive, and the image of someone wearing a white suit in a full bathtub implies someone slightly unhinged,” says Jess.

Jess Cornelius Unveils Single 'No Difference' + Video

Wellington-raised, Los Angeles-based songwriter Jess Cornelius (Teeth & Tongue) was recently in Aotearoa for her first hometown show in seventeen years, playing alongside local heroes French For Rabbits. The expat artist’s debut solo collection Nothing Is Lost made significant waves when it dropped in 2017, garnering praise from such international tastemakers as NYLON and Tone Deaf magazine.

Drugdealer Treads a Line Between Yacht Rock & Modern Pop on New Single

The collective known as Drugdealer has announced a new album due out in mid-April, and the first taste of Raw Honey has landed with the single, “Fools.” The song, accompanied with a new video is a mixture of modern chill wave pop and yacht rock thus proving that these guys may always have a toe in the past on everything they create.

Drugdealer – “Fools”

To accept Drugdealer is to buy into the notion that reverence for influences can become so fervent that it scratches up against the edges of schtick. There’s a fine line between what Fred Armisen is doing with Blue Jean Committee and what Michael Collins and crew are doing with Drugdealer. It shouldn’t matter so much – 60’s adherents are a rampant among garage and alt-pop types.


Drugdealer – “Fools” Video

Drugdealer, formerly known as Salvia Plath and even more formerly known as Run DMT — you might be sensing a theme here — is the recording project of Los Angeles musician Michael Collins. Collins specializes in a sunny form of retro-minded psych-pop, and this spring, he’s following up 2016’s The End Of Comedy with a new album called Raw Honey, his first for Brooklyn indie label Mexican Summer.

The Fader Premieres Hand Habits, 'what lovers do'

Meg Duffy of Hand Habits wrote their forthcoming record as wildfires burned through Southern California. For an album about love and relationships, it’s a fitting setting; there’s something inherently destructive in making space within yourself to bring someone else in.


Stereogum Premieres Hand Habits, 'what lovers do'

In 2017, after years spent as a backing musician for the likes of Kevin Morby, Weyes Blood, and Mega Bog, Meg Duffy stepped out on their own under the name Hand Habits. Their debut album Wildly Idle (Humble Before The Void) was an excellent collection of warm, comfortable folk-rock meditations, and next month, Duffy is getting ready to follow it up with a new album.


Hand Habits’ ‘What Lovers Do’ Is Warm And Gently Desiring

Hand Habits (real name Meg Duffy)’s upcoming album Placeholder is one of the most anticipated new releases of 2019. The singles Duffy has released from the record so far, “Placeholder” and “Can’t Calm Down,” glow with Duffy’s contemplative songwriting and warm, thoughtful voice.

Drugdealer Announces First Album on Mexican Summer - Raw Honey, Shares First Single 'Fools'

After becoming enmeshed in the Los Angeles underground scene after 2013’s The End of Comedy, Raw Honey (Michael Collins second album as Drugdealer) sees Collins once again leading an ace crew of collaborators to coalesce the spirit of Drugdealer’s classically modern pop with lush arrangements, memetic melodies, and a vulnerable tunefulness that tries to make sense of self-doubt and connected loneliness in our shared simulacra.
