Recording and performing under the name Blondshell, Sabrina Teitelbaum has quickly put herself on the map with the release of her first two singles this summer: her debut “Olympus,” and last month’s “Kiss City.”Today she releases “Sepsis.”

The video for “Sepsis” was shot in Los Angeles on a Super-8 camera and directed by Seann Bryan. Of the single, Teitelbaum shares, “In the thick of COVID, I became obsessed with Hole’s song ‘Doll Parts’ and it inspired me to write something cathartic and pissed. I wrote ‘Sepsis’ as a way of getting anger out – anger towards people who have treated me as if I didn’t deserve very much care and anger towards myself for accepting that treatment. I wanted to create some accountability with this song and also sing about the counterproductive nature of trying to outrun loneliness. Most importantly I wanted to give myself permission to be as dramatic as possible and say aloud that I’m afraid bad feelings might actually kill me.”

Blondshell

L.A.-based musician Sabrina Teitelbaum has a knack for crafting intimate lyrics that evoke visceral emotions, atop adventurous songwriting and addicting melodies. Having joined forces with Another Management Company, the team behind the careers of Kurt Vile, Stephen Malkmus, Waxahatchee, and more, today, she returns with her second single, “Kiss City,” on which Teitelbaum’s gravelly vocals work their way to a provocative and climactic chorus: “Kiss city / I think my kink is when you tell me that you think I’m pretty.”

Of the single, Teitelbaum says, “I was sick of pretending I didn’t care about love. The song is about wanting to be seen as an entire person, the fear of not being seen at all and being compared to other women – all the things that come up when you don’t trust the person you’re with. Writing alone in my apartment, I was able to voice my most vulnerable desires, which turned into demands over the course of the song. I think the song itself made me more confident and able to ask for what I deserve. I got angry as I was writing it because I realized that care is a very basic demand for someone you’re romantically involved with.”

Teitelbaum will soon be taking Blondshell on the road, first with a hometown show opening for Horsegirl at The Echo in Los Angeles on July 22, then on tour opening for Porridge Radio this fall. See all tour dates below.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs

After teasing their first new music in over nine years, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are officially back with a new album and single to share with the masses. Karen O, Nick Zinner and Brian Chase announce today their fifth studio album, Cool It Down, will be released on September 30th via Secretly Canadian and features cover photography by Alex Prager. The eight-track collection is an expert distillation of the band’s best gifts that impel you to move, cry, and listen closely and is bound to be a landmark in their catalog.

Cool It Down

To punctuate this news, the band has shared the album opener and first single from the record, the Dave Sitek-produced  “Spitting Off the Edge of the World” feat. Perfume Genius.

Perfume Genius also co-stars alongside Karen in the visual for “Spitting,” as an avenging angel limo driver to her desert rebel queen. The visual was directed by longtime YYY’s collaborator, Cody Critcheloe (aka Ssion), who designed the artwork for Fever To Tell and also directed Perfume Genius’s amazing “Queen” video.

“To all who have waited, our dear fans, thank you, our fever to tell has returned, and writing these songs came with its fair share of chills, tears, and euphoria when the pain lifts and truth is revealed. Don’t have to tell you how much we’ve been going through in the last nine years since our last record, because you’ve been going through it too, and we love you and we see you, and we hope you feel the feels from the music we’ve made. No shying away from the feels, or backing down from what’s been gripping all of us these days. So yes we’ve taken our time, happy to report when it’s ready it really does just flow out,” says Karen O.

“The record is called Cool It Down which is snagged from a lesser known Velvet Underground Song. I told Alex Prager whose photo graces our record cover that her image speaks to sweeping themes in the music and sums up how I, Karen, feel existentially in these times! But there’s always more to the story. This is how our new story begins, we present to you with heads bowed and fists in the air “Spitting Off the Edge of the World” featuring Perfume Genius.

A note on this video, it’s a dream collaboration with one of our favorite artists of the 21st century Cody Critcheloe who did the artwork for our first record back in 2003 and has been making visionary music videos for the last decade. The time to collaborate again came with Spitting, the shoot in Kansas City was dream-like, the dreams you have after eating something really greasy right before bed; bizarre, poetic, and intense. Perfume Genius was incredibly gracious to roll in the very cold mud as my co pilot and steal scene after scene with his surreal charm.  We trusted Cody implicitly, he surpassed expectations and gave us our November Rain. YYY’s spirit is alive and well through the eyes of Cody Critcheloe. Custom Yeahs limo was largely his handiwork, fueled on love.”
