The garage-punk Le Butcherettes are like the brilliant offspring of surrealist Luis Buñuel and intrepid rock icon PJ Harvey. Led by 25-year-old vocalist/guitarist/pianist Teri Gender Bender (a recent transplant to El Paso, TX from Guadalajara, Mexico), Le Butcherettes’ songs and wildly cathartic live shows have often drawn comparisons to Karen O, Patti Smith, Bikini Kill, and many other female-fronted rock groups, but there’s a theatricality to Le Butcherettes that brings a further reaching sense of mystery and imagery to the band.
This electric live show has led to extensive tours with legendary artists such as The Flaming Lips, The Mars Volta, Iggy Pop & the Stooges, Faith No More, The Melvins, Jane’s Addiction, The Deftones, Queens of the Stone Age, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Dead Weather and The Melvins, along with appearances at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Corona Capital Festival, Fun Fun Fun Fest, and Sonar Festival.
Despite the relentless tour schedule, Le Butcherettes have released a steady stream of critically acclaimed music. Their debut EP, Kiss & Kill, in 2009 was nominated for “Best New Artist” and “Best Punk Record” awards at Mexico’s Indie-O Awards, while their second full-length Cry Is For the Flies (2014, Ipecac Recordings) won the award for “Best Punk/Garage” in 2015. Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (At The Drive In, The Mars Volta, Bosnian Rainbows) has produced all three Le Butcherettes full-length albums to date. You can hear guest appearances from Iggy Pop (“LA UVA”), Garbage’s Shirley Manson (“Shame, You’re All I’ve Got Left”), and Henry Rollins (“Moment of Guilt”) across the band’s discography.
Le Butcherettes released their third full-length album, A Raw Youth, on Ipecac Recordings in the fall of 2015. They continue to tour on this album through 2016 with new music in the works.
Lea is a band started by two people in 2012. Within two years their operation grew to a whopping 3 employees as they work around east coast USA bringing strange rock music wherever they go. With a sound similar to that of late 20th century indie rock bands like The Pixies, Pavement or Archers of Loaf, Lea the band works hard to bring the customer what they deserve in a three piece band in todays fast moving internet world. Late 2016 saw the release of their two singles recorded in New Haven Connecticut, the Duck House Single and In Knife Boots and a Carbon Suit, both of which were rated 6 out of 10 stars by Jake Doherty’s girlfriend Domina Dibiase, who is an authority on such matters and in no way related to “The Million Dollar Man” Ted Dibiase from 1980s WWF television. 2017 shines brightly for the three young members of Lea, who now have a newfound inspiration in running across Jakes neighbors lawn from the mean dog that lives there. With your help Lea the band can bring their unique brand of guitar-oriented indie rock around the country and spend as much time as possible far far away from the aforementioned mean neighbor dog. Wont you help? Full album release slated for mid 2017.
