Adult Mom
Adult Mom began as the solo project of Stephanie Knipe in a Purchase College dorm room in 2012. Adult Mom now falls between the playful spectrum of solo project and collaborative band with beloved friends and musicians Olivia Battell, Mike Dvorscak, and Bruce Hamilton. Through reflections and explorations of the personal and hidden, the crux of the writing produced by Knipe is focused on excavation. The dredging out of secrets, putting it all in a pan, waiting for the gold to rise. Honesty and intimacy form as Knipe writes clever pop songs that offer a glimpse into the journey of a gender-weird queer navigating through heartache, trauma and subsequent growth.

With their debut LP, Momentary Lapse of Happily, Adult Mom bravely shined a light on the darkness and allowed the listener to experience and feel those moments along with them. Soft Spots, the project’s sophomore LP, is an exploration into the physical and emotional acts of opening up, the vulnerability that produces love, and then ache. With this record, Knipe proclaims that everybody has soft spots. Spots that get cared for and tended to, that grow and fade, that produce feeling that can linger for years and years. Knipe shares with us their process of learning how to cradle and understand their own softness without finality, a story without an end.

free cake for every creature
Free Cake For Every Creature is a pop band currently based in Philadelphia. Beginning as the secret home-recording project of songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Katie Bennett, the band has since expanded to include a rotating cast of colorful friends and musicians. Inspired by the DIY ethos of bands like Beat Happening and Rose Melberg, Katie & the cakes have self-booked numerous tours across America, taking pictures and posting online journal entries of their explorations along the way.

In April 2016 the band released their first record, “Talking Quietly of Anything With You,” on Double Double Whammy. Colin Joyce at Pitchfork praised the title track, saying it “represents Bennett as a singular songwriter, one who’s able to transmute her influences—K Records’ ramshackle charm, Yo La Tengo’s slower, stiller moments—into pithy, affecting turns of phrase.” Rob Sheffield at Rolling Stone listed the album in his top 20 albums of 2016. “Talking Quietly of Anything With You” navigates the surrealism of young adult life with a sonic range from warm, contemplative passages, to exuberant pop hooks.
