This is a huge help for the cost of our Double 7″ EP coming out with the titles “Distractions” and “Goin’ Home.” We are really excited for the test presses to come…Paul diligently checks his mailbox like 3 times a day but unfortunately they haven’t come yet. Maybe they will be there today……=).

Anyway, we had a really fun music week last week. We went and saw The Flops last Friday at the Tuscan…most fun band ever. We also saw Ottovon Bismarck who gave us full body massages with the loudest bass I ever heard in my life. My heart literally skipped during their set cause it didn’t know how to handle the vibration…I felt like I was being defibrillated back to life.

Also, on Saturday, the Grifters opened their home for “Bajanapalooza,” where we played a show for the first time in a while! Everyone killed it that night…seriously it was a really cool show. Thanks to Stephanie Diaz for putting it on! It was so much fun to get back into it…and I’m excited cause we have a ton of shows coming up in the near future. Next one is Record Store Day at Eyeconik Records on April 16th with a ton of other bands.

Well, thats all. Stay safe, fun, and beautiful.

PS – We now have a Facebook. Like us if you like us! ❤


New Song Live @ Site Fest (Brooklyn, NY)

Thanks to Cody of ColorfulLens for shooting this at our show last Friday (March 4th) when we played the Site Fest Launch Party at Brooklyn Fireproof.  Well, technically we played on Saturday morning.  Either way, we can’t wait to get back!  Enjoy!

A Melissa and Paul Music Video?

Not quite, but Yakitty Yak used our song “Fire Burn” from our upcoming double 7″ “Distractions/Goin’ Home” in their latest snowboard video/trailer.  The track is side b of the “Distractions” record.  Check it out below!  For other videos, clothes, photos and to  keep up to date on Yakitty Yak like them on facebook by clicking  HERE.

Also, the show in Brooklyn on Friday ruled.  They always welcome and make us feel at home there and we can’t wait to get back with the record!

A Video From Eyeconik Records on Sunday

Support your local record store!  EYECONIK RECORDS ON FACEBOOK.  We’re playing there electrified again on April 16th.  They will also be carrying our double 7″ when it’s out…Thanks to Justin for filming this.  We may have more up soon from a different camera. It’s a fragment kinda day…

About to go mail out

The double 7″ masters and artwork!  We’ve been scrambling over the past week or so to prepare everything for our debut release.  We set a goal to be done and send it out today and it looks like we’re actually adhering to it!  We’ll keep an update on test presses, release dates and our kickstarter.  Speaking of which, if you wanna check that out click HERE.  We have 31 days left and we’re way over half way to our goal! If you would like to contribute and help us reach it that would be awesome!  We have some pretty interesting offerings and should be adding test presses to the mix!  Sorry for all the exclamations…this is just exciting.  Expect audio soon.

Anyway, the acoustic show at the record store was awesome.  All of the bands and solo artists made the night fun and enjoyable.  Thank you Eyeconik Records for hosting the event and of course for all the soup and hot cocoa.  That place is kind of special to us.  Newborns are to hospitals as we are to Eyeconik Records.  Here’s a snap from that taken by my cousin.  Check out his clothing line and extreme sports videos HERE.  Videos from it soon.
