April 21, 2013 - THE ETTES HEADLINE SATURDAY DAY AT ATLANTA MESS-AROUND FEST


It's that glorious time of year, where chaos reigns over Flat Shoals Avenue between 529 and the Earl. The lineup for the fifth annual Atlanta Mess-Around Festival is here, promising an exhaustively action-packed weekend of garage rock, surf, and pop music. The two-day event kicks off Friday, April 26, with a rowdy lineup featuring everyone from Greg Cartwright's Spector-punk stalwarts the Parting Gifts and haunted pop aficionados TV Ghost and Ghost Bikini, to JP5, a curious project featuring Gentleman Jesse and Joseph Plunket from the Weight.

Single-event tickets will be available soon at the Earl, Criminal Records, Decatur CD, Whole Foods, Fantasyland Records, some CD Warehouse locations, and online at Ticket Alternative. Festival passes available online.

April 18, 2013 - WE OPENED A RECORD SHOP!


Coco Hames and Poni Silver opened a record store once before. It was a big hit — a popular emporium with a cafe and a devoted clientele. It went so well they decided to try it in real life.

Back then, the frontwoman and drummer for garage-rock trio The Ettes started an all-purpose retail outlet called The Stone Owl. Only they did it between gigs on the virtual-reality video game The Sims, using what Hames remembers as a "janky old laptop," to break the tedium of road trips. The store, the town and even the world may have been imaginary, but their desire for such a place in the analog world was real.

"All of us grew up with a record store with a dude who knew everything about music, the kind you'd stand around waiting Saturday morning for it to open," says Hames, who also plays in the band The Parting Gifts and writes the "Cahiers du Coco" DVD column for the Scene's Country Life blog.

Now Hames and Silver are about to become "that dude." With their fellow partners Ettes bassist Jem Cohen, artist and printmaker Rachel Briggs, and recent Austin transplant Jeff "El Jefe" Pettit — whose 20,000-plus LP collection is providing the initial stock — they're putting the finishing touches on Fond Object, the latest addition to one of the coolest crossroads in Nashville, Inglewood's Riverside Village...[continue reading]

Coco @ Fond ObjectFrom the mouth of Nashville Cream:


"According to a post on her personal blog, Ettes singer-guitarist Coco Hames and some friends are opening a multifarious arts and music boutique in East Nashville. The retail/gallery space, to be called Fond Object (also the name of The Ettes newly minted DIY record label — “It's new, it's our own, we will be releasing our music and other music we like henceforth in perpetuity ad nauseum," Hames writes of the label), will function as a showcase shop for Ettes drummer and local couturier Poni Silver and a gallery for local artist Rachel Briggs, as well as a record store and record player repair shop.

Hames claims the store, located at 1313 McGavock Pk. (the former location of shuttered doggie daycare center A Bark Above), has already amassed 20,000 vintage LPs to stock.

It's also "a place to come sit in the awesome and massive fenced back yard to watch those Janus Films my awesome friends got me for my 30th,” Hames writes. “The A/C and lights come on tomorrow. Saturday is paint day. We'll open when we're ready. So get ready.”

AWESOME.

From that Two-bit Johnny from Long Gone, West Coast, USA. Super stoked. Couldn't have said the rest better myself.

Two-bit Johnny (aka Long Gone John and Sympathy for the Record Industry) sez:

It's been nearly 4 years since i've released a new record and the amazing ettes debut album was among the last few i put out...i am very excited to once again become involved with the ettes and begin operations on such a high note..in august i will be unleashing the lp (vinyl version) of their new album, "wicked will"...it is amazing,... i can't stop listening to it...there is also talk of a single to precede the album with some sort of special specialness going on...here is official release/propaganda info written by someone much more astute than me:

Rock trio THE ETTES return with a vengeance with Wicked Will, the band's fourth long player and their first through their own imprint, Fond Object, a joint venture with Krian Music Group/ Fontana. The album will also available as a vinyl release through long dormant indie Sympathy For the Record Industry, who put out THE ETTES' 2005 debut. It's a coming of age album for the Beat Punk trio and reunites them with producer Liam Watson (Bobby Long, The Kills, White Stripes), who recorded their debut, Shake the Dust, at his London analog sound lab Toe Rag Studio.

Written on the road and in the band's adopted hometown of Nashville, Wicked Will encompasses everything you've come to expect from THE ETTES and more - up-front, fearless vocals, fuzz bass runs, primal, driving drums beats, searing guitar lines and of course, tons of black eyeliner and attitude. Female attitude. Lead singer/lyricist Coco Hames channels the best and sassiest of '60s Girl Group vixens - the leatherette clad bad girl rockers who teased their hair and the boyz - but she and Ettes' co-founder Poni would definitely kick your ass themselves before waiting for their boyfriend to get back. And you better believe they'd be riding alongside the Leader of the Pack rather than in his sidecar. Or, better yet, they'd be leading their own hot Russ Meyer-esque outlaw girl bike gang/rock band.

With 13 original tracks and a sizzling, sympatico cover of Lee Hazelwood's "My Baby Cried (All Night Long)," this kaleidoscopic, album finds THE ETTES delivering their most confident, varied disc to date. While the intensity and guitar/bass/drum attack are constants, there are both beautiful and defiant moments, along with a newfound sense of vulnerability and knowingness in Coco's lyrics. Says Hames, "In general, I find this to be an album largely about women, my relationships with women and my perceptions of women; my meanest songs are about myself."

The gorgeously melancholic vocal line of "The Worst There Is," with its spare arrangement and Coco's wistful lyric, "When you're the worst there is, There's nothing to fear," touches a nerve and has the feel of a lost '60s Marianne Faithful track. Coco gets personal about what to expect in a relationship in the aggressive rocker [“You’re not going to break”] “My Heart,” singing, “You're not faithful but you're true," while asking herself if that’s enough. “The Pendulum” has a fuzz chorus to die for, with the tambourine loud and up front and the reverb cranked – it’s like discovering an amazing lost garage-rock nugget.

These rock nomads, who've lived in LA, NYC and now Nashville, have earned their rock stripes the hard way - on the road. They’ve toured with the Black Keys and Kings of Leon and spent a chunk of 2010 on tour with both the Dead Weather and the Greenhornes. Coco, Poni (Maria Silver) and Jem (Jem Cohen) have been spending their time either in their home studio in Nashville or on tours and fests here and abroad, playing their own unique brand of "Beat Punk." They've had high-profile synchs in such TV shows as NCIS Los Angeles, Sons Of Tucson, Entourage and are featured in the current national Kotex television campaign. You can also hear them in Drew Barrymore's roller derby flick, Whip It.

THE ETTES' musical peers have always been among the band's biggest supporters: the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach recorded the track “No Home” with the band, released as both a 45” single and an album track on 2009's Do You Want Power. Coco also formed a band with the Reigning Sound's Greg Cartwright, The Parting Gifts, whose album Strychnine Dandelion came out in 2010 and featured Jem on bass and The Greenhornes's Patrick Keeler on drums. Pitchfork said of the collaboration of Coco and Greg: "The Parting Gifts provide a Loretta to his [Cartwright's] Conway, a Nancy to his Lee," and the Guardian UK compared Coco's vocals on the album to Ronnie Spector.

With Wicked Will, the ETTES have thrown down the rock gauntlet and they are daring you to pick it up. After a CD release show in Nashville, the band will kick off a national headlining tour with two NYC shows in the beginning of August, 2011. Stay tuned to http://www.theettes.com/ for additional updates.

"Nancy Sinatra style, Patsy Cline twang, and Stonesy rock." - ALL MUSIC GUIDE

"Lead singer Coco channels some of the best bouffanted singers of the '60s while adding a sleek punk edge" - NPR
