The Claudettes
The Claudettes
The Claudettes fuse Chicago piano blues with the full-throttle energy of rockabilly and punk and the sultriness of '60s soul to write a thrilling new chapter in American roots music. Johnny Iguana pounds the piano alongside seductive singer Berit Ulseth, bassist/guitarist/singer Zach Verdoorn and drummer Michael Caskey. Johnny, who toured for years with his cult-favorite rock band oh my god, is also in the Grammy-nominated groups Chicago Blues: A Living History and the Muddy Waters 100 Band. He has toured/recorded with Junior Wells, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush and more and played piano on the new "Chicago Plays the Stones" album featuring Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Buddy Guy. The Claudettes recorded their 2018 album "DANCE SCANDAL AT THE GYMNNASIUM!" with Grammy-winning producer Mark Neill (Black Keys, Old 97's, J. Roddy Walston, J.D. McPherson). It was released in March 2018 on Yellow Dog Records (Memphis, TN) and in April 2018 in Europe/UK via Continental Records Services. The Claudettes recorded a new album with Grammy-winning producer Ted Hutt (Old Crow Medicine Show, Gaslight Anthem, The Devil Makes Three) in late 2018; it will come out later in 2019.
GREG KOT, CHICAGO TRIBUNE A revelatory blend of jazz and blues, stirred with punk brio. There are also dashes of classical and world music, and enough stops, starts and hairpin turns to suggest the giddiness of Raymond Scott's cartoon music...How do they do it?
MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE A skewed cabaret band of blues, jazz and rockabilly…a sensibility that feels equal parts James Dean and David Lynch.
Baby Teeth
Baby Teeth
White Tonight, Baby Teeth's 2012 studio record documenting the indignities of middle age and the desperation of clinging to a fading youth, has been unavailable for the past year-ish on all major streaming platforms. (This accounts for that low-grade depression you've been experiencing.) Now, with a shiny remaster and a slightly tweaked album cover, it's back on your personal favorite streaming service. Naturally, Baby Teeth is having a blowout to celebrate this momentous cultural event.

This is the music to which you fell in love, got married, got divorced, and had your first seven midlife crises. Since 2004, Baby Teeth have been dogged by the question, “Are they serious?” So, to get that out of the way, the answer is: Hell yes. And also... Who’s asking? And also... Who cares? And finally... You can be tragic and funny and melodramatic and funky and buoyant and depressive on the same album, right? Or, is that breaking the rules?
