Welcome to the TRR family, Perennial!

Welcome to the TRR family, Perennial!

NEW Perennial LP - ART HISTORY coming 6/7/24 on EJRC! 12 Songs. 22 Minutes. This is the record we want from a rock band. East/West Coast tour dates. Tapes = Totally Real Records / UK LPs = Safe Suburban Home / Smartpunk variant too!

Pre-Orders/Streams/First Single:
https://orcd.co/arthistory

Perennial is an art project: Mod pop, post-hardcore, 60s soul, ambient electronic music, midcentury design, abstract expressionism, French New Wave cinema; it’s all collage material for Perennial.

The band — electric organist Chelsey Hahn, guitarist Chad Jewett and drummer Ceej Dioguardi — is equal parts manic basement show bombast and studio-as-instrument headphone listening. To see the New England three-piece in person is to experience a 20-minute burst of kinetic energy: dynamic, reckless, electrifying. To put on one of Perennial’s records is to spend almost the same amount of time with impeccably layered studio-as-instrument punk modernism.

Art History, the band’s newest full-length album (out June 7 via Ernest Jenning Record Co.), finds Perennial further experimenting with their angular cut-and-glue aesthetic. An adventurous 20 minutes of impressionist punk energy, British Invasion guitar pop chic, and Mod-inflected rhythm and noise rave-ups, Art History is both Perennial’s most giddily accessible and most artistically daring record to date.

Real poetry is always about plants and birds and trees and the animals and milk and honey breathing in the pink but real life is behind a screen aka TRR043 by is totally real!

Happy release day to our most extremely online artist, the San Jose, CA-based Katie McTigue, a prolific powerhouse who we suspect might have perfect pitch and a sense of humor to rival the lyrical chops of her heroes (and ours!) Cheekface of course! We didn't know an anti-folk revival was coming but hey maybe here it is. Either way, the album with the longest title we've had to type in a tweet is finally here and while the singles have already been bouncing around in our brains and on the internet for a minute now, we're so excited for you to dive in for the whole album.

Released on very limited edition and way too involved to make more of CDs and tapes.

It was fun to talk about this record after a little time since the release!

Real Love has been out for 6 months! Grateful for the chance to talk with Stereoactive Media and Totally Real Records about the process of releasing the LP. We talked some inside baseball on what it’s like to independently put a record out now, and I revealed how I am always trying to make an album that is made up almost entirely of monster singles, in the tradition of Hysteria by Def Leppard or Kick by INXS.

We are totally real.

Bryan B quietly launched Totally Real Records in 2019 to release a song by Mount Sharp, then decided to keep it going to help other people get their music heard.
