Back in the day when we were still called One Thirty BPM we had our own tiny digital record label and that was home to Californian post-punk band Flora & Fauna. Frontman Matt Bernstein is back with drummer Casey Baird in a new band called Wet Leather.
Beats Per Minute is proud to premiere the band’s debut track “Stop Me If I’m Doing It Wrong” — an evolution Flora & Fauna sound now infused with a synth pop aesthetic over their original post-punk core. Seems like a bright new start to me. Stream the track below or download it over on Bandcamp.
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
