  • You may have seen those “Life of Pedro” tees that Kanye West has been selling. Well, now Father John Misty offers his own version: Life of Padre. The sleeves also read “Juan” and “Misty,” I guess because he couldn’t find a Spanish version of the word “Misty.” It may be a joke, but it’s also kinda for real, because pre-orders are happening now.

  • Speedy Ortiz frontwoman Sadie Dupuis is releasing a solo album under the moniker Sad13. Check out the first single from her debut Slugger, out November 11th via Carpark. Dupuis wrote, recorded, and played all the instruments herself during a two-week period from a friend’s bedroom. Via a press release, she adds, “I wanted to make songs that were the opposite of ‘Genie in a Bottle’ or ‘The Boy Is Mine.’ Songs that put affirmative consent at the heart of the subject matter and emphasize friendship among women and try to deescalate the toxic jealousy and ownership that are often centered in romantic pop songs.” [Under the Radar]

  • And speaking of rad ladies recording solo albums away from their main band, Wye Oak’s Jenn Wasner shares a new track under her moniker Flock of Dimes. Check out the song “Everything Is Happening Today” below, off her forthcoming full-length If You See Me, Say Yes out September 23rd via Partisan. [Consequence of Sound]
