Juliana recently spoke to Kyle Meredith of WFPK about her new album. It's an outstanding 14 minutes of radio. Enjoy!
We're stoked to share Juliana's awesome video for "Short-Fingered Man" from her upcoming album Pussycat.
"For this video I shot a bunch of footage of myself in my hallway. I love sixties dancing so I did a bunch of that. Also I was thinking of early Jean Rollin vampire movies and of "Alphaville" (Godard) and those scenes near the end in which Anna Karina--and other residents of Alphaville--start to lose their equilibrium in the hallway and can't keep themselves walking in a straight line. Caroline Jaecks took all of my footage and masterfully constructed a neat little narrative out of it that fits the song really well."

Juliana will be doing a 5-show East Coast tour in April in support of her new record, Pussycat, to be released on April 28th.
“I wasn’t planning on making a record,” says Juliana Hatfield, of her new Pussycat album. In fact, she thought her songwriting career was on hiatus, and that she had nothing left to say in song form; that she had finally said it all after two decades as a recording artist. But then the presidential election happened. “All of these songs just started pouring out of me. And I felt an urgency to record them, to get them down, and get them out there.”
Pussycat comes on the heels of last year’s Hatfield collaboration with Paul Westerberg, the I Don’t Cares’ Wild Stab album, and before that, 2015’s Juliana Hatfield Three (“My Sister”, “Spin The Bottle”) reunion/reformation album, Whatever, My Love.
The tour will include stops in Hatfield’s hometown of Cambridge, MA, Philly, Vienna, Virginia and at NYC’s Mercury Lounge. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 24th at 12 noon EST.
Juliana will also be part of the Boston Stands with the ACLU show at the Paradise in Boston, MA on March 18th.
We're thrilled to announce we've done a very special reissue of The Caulfield Sisters debut EP "Say It With Fire" on a one-time, limited edition run of 150 cassettes. We took great care in preparing this one. Our good friend and designer Lonny Unitus reworked the original CD artwork and added some rare live photos by photographer Jasper Coolidge. We choose a beautiful purple tint cassette shell, and spared no expense duplicating at National Audio Company on the very best Chrome Plus tapes with Dolby B NR. You may stream the album and purchase cassettes here.
Our good friends at J Mack Studios not only screenprint all our tees, but they have an awesome design team too. We worked with our buddy Ken to create this new tee design inspired by the Shasta Tin Can Trailer. We absolutely LOVE the retro vibe. Screenprinted by hand on super comfortable, high-quality American Apparel 100% Cotton t-shirts. Pre-orders begin today!
We’re excited to announce we’ve partnered with our good friends at Turntable Kitchen to offer you all a very special Ltd Ed 7" pressing consisting of 4 standout tracks from our Smiths tribute. If that wasn't cool enough, the pressing is on Bronze-colored vinyl.
On Side A, Kitten tackles the iconic single “Panic.” The original was released by The Smiths in 1986 as a 7” single through Rough Trade Records and lambasts the pop music of the time (which, Morrissey lamented, “says nothing to me about my life”). It’s followed up by Built To Spill front man Doug Martsch offering a jangly and sparkling acoustic take on the opening track, “Reel Around The Fountain,” from The Smiths’ 1984 self-titled debut album.
Side B opens up with an exquisite, stripped down version of “What She Says” by La Sera mastermind Katy Goodman. With lush harmonies and a dusty vibe, it’s beautifully atmospheric and floating. Finally, Girl in a Coma offer up a version of “Rubber Ring” that’s both foot-stompingly rugged and raggedly exotic. It’s simply dripping with snarl and ominous mystery.
Turntable Kitchen pressed 525 copies on Bronze-colored vinyl, of which we have 100 copies to offer on our store. These are going to go quickly so order today to guarantee your copy.
Due to popular demand, we've done a very special reissue of "Whatever, My Love" on black vinyl. The first pressing sold-out in pre-orders. This new one is another small run of 500 copies. All LP's include a vinyl-exclusive bonus track and a digital download card + promotional decal inside the jacket. Buy direct or from Amazon.
