With summer lying in wait, Lisa Prank is coming out of hibernation and embracing the sun. Robin Edwards' Seattle-based solo project has gained a dedicated following thanks to her expert marriage of a bubbly sound and all-too-relatable lyrics. Following 2014's exceptional Crush on the World, Lisa Prank returns with a breezy but focused collection of meticulously crafted bedroom pop gems. Adult Teen, the project's forthcoming record, is dominated by bruised romanticism, introspective longing, and a palpable sense of desire, building a sound heavily influenced by 90s pop punk and the decade's lighthearted culture.

Robin Edwards performs all of the Lisa Prank songs live with an electric guitar and a Roland MC-505 drum machine, delivering memorable performances with ease. Thanks to that fact, Lisa Prank has become a project that's frequently celebrated among Edwards' peers, some of whom, including Bree McKenna and Emily Nokes of Tacocat, Julia Shapiro of Chastity Belt, and Andrew Sullivan and Ian Dugas of The Trashies contributed performances to the record. Lisa Prank has shared the stage with bands like Waxahatchee, Tacocat, and Pony Time. She also contributed vocals on Childbirth's Women's Rights album for Suicide Squeeze Records. Adult Teen was recorded and mixed by Eric Randall (Tacocat), mastered by Carl Saff, with artwork by Faye Orlove.
"Dogbreth's lyrics, most often sung by guitarist Tristan Jemsek (though bassist Erin Caldwell and guitarist Tyler Broderick both took great turns at the mic), are direct and affecting. Pop punk isn't thought of as a poet's genre, but with simply stated but vivid lines like "On those nights when a song could make me act so weird/Those nights when the moon seemed like it was all ears" they share kinship with the greats" - Phoenix New Times

"Nice, hook-laden pop with amateurish vocals" - Razorcake

"The heart-soaring power-pop gems the Phoenix band writes are filled with posi-vibes and guitar riffs that reach Pinkerton-level sing-along status, perfect for blasting on speakers lying next to a lake until it's too hot and you have to jump in the water again." - The Stranger

"If you like Wavves' melodies but you're trying to smoke weed less and play outside more you should give Sentimental Health a spin." - I Locked The Door
Pledge Drive
Pledge Drive
The members of Pledge Drive all met while volunteering in the call room of their local public broadcasting Spring Pledge Drive. It was there that they discovered that their passion for high quality, educational and informative programing delivered to the general public was only surpassed by their love of rock and roll. Subsequently, Pledge Drive hung up the phones and picked up their instruments.
