MALLRAT, Full Body, Liana Gabel, Nancy Babich

MALLRAT – Brooklyn, NY
https://mallrat.bandcamp.com/
Self proclaimed “gay angels making songs about living in a racialized, gendered, traumatized body” MALLRAT cuts deep with plucky guitar riffs and cutting, emotional vocals. Lyrics like “I don’t hate my body I’m just afraid of it” and “would you love me if you treated me more tenderly” powerfully capture and explore the nuanced complexity of trauma and intimacy. Likely to give you that cathartic cry you’ve been holding in for what, well, feels like a lifetime

Crooning vocals and heavy math progressions from Full Body showcase their absolute talent to equally psych you up and bum you out

Liana Gabel – Rosendale, NY
https://lianaband.bandcamp.com/album/one-take-ep
Rough and raw, Liana Gabel belts out and walks us through songs that “speak of suicide, addiction, racism, and deep love that exists beyond time and all physical form”
