Illuminasty is proud to present Half Right/ Timmy, a 7” EP by our very own Nail Polish. The record includes two brand new songs from the greasy yet explosive NYC duo, whose “delightfully unpolished” brand of Rock ‘N’ Roll is likely to inspire midnight “punk as fuck” themed weddings, and of course, dancing.


This limited release is available for pre-order now!


The Half Right/Timmy 7” is on classic midnight black wax, and protected by a standard cardboard sleeve featuring slime green minimalist artwork atop a picket fence white background.

In case you missed it, Nail Polish have been getting some well deserved praise for their first single ‘Stay Gone’:
 

“The bright guitar-and-drum battering elicits dreams of the garage pop and psych unions that have come from the cult of Burger Records in recent years, and Brodine’s voice is insolent and spot-on as he laments a life that feels stuck.”

Impose Magazine

 

“The new single brings to mind similar groups like Wavves or even some of the punkier elements from a band like So So Glos.”

Austin Town Hall

 

“Nail Polish hit us with two and a half minuets of garage rock heaven, the state side two piece’s latest track Stay Gone is laid out on surf vibe guitars and a driving beat taken over by the most awesome, lazy vocals.”

Shop Lifter’s Union

 

If you didn’t go to The Know to see So Stressed, Sloths and A Volcano, even though The Portland Mercury recommended it, then you seriously missed out.
 
We only hope Shelby Kray caught it on film.

SLOTHS are playing at the Know in Portland this Wednesday, the 16th. They’ll have tapes for sale.

Check out So Stressed; their self-aware, jaded, semi-ironic crust sound will blow you away with its sincerely brutal yet sometimes spastic fit and finish.



A Volcano also fucking rips, but I dunno how to talk about them without going into where they fit into post-rock and that’s a rabbit hole we don’t have time for– but yes, they are a really cool band.

Anyway, the show is only 8 bucks, which to us sounds like an incredible value.
