This Just In: Permanent Makeup

We love being able to feature local/regional music on the blog, especially when it’s from kick-ass, hardworking bands comprised of amazing people. Tampa’s Permanent Makeup is just that, which is why their DIY-as-hell approach is working wonders. Their brand of relentless art-punk is equal parts raging and inspirational. They’re out there spreading the gospel that ANYONE can start a band and make music, which is an attitude EVERYONE should adopt. We’re proud to feature their new LP, Taker, on our walls and blast it through our speakers. Grab a (finely priced) copy today, and check out this week’s full in-stock list since records are more fun to buy in multiples. -MLE

Permanent Makeup – Taker LP:
Listen: The whole damn album!

Watch: Lotions And Creams – West Cost Tour Documentary

“Expanding on the Minutemen-influenced critically-acclaimed art-punk of 2013’s The Void…It Creeps, Florida’s Permanent Makeup gives us their next full length Taker.

Springing from a collaboratively improv-based writing process throughout 2014, the songs on Taker have a more naturally complex and aggressive approach. Bassist Christopher expands ‘We have seen more of the country as a band, played with countless weird & wonderful bands and been witness to many incredible communities. This album was informed by all of these influences in the context of living and breathing in Tampa Bay, Florida.’ ‘We are definitely more agitated on this record.’ adds guitarist James.

Whether it’s drive and determination, a message of community and frustration or immediacy and purpose you want, then look no further than this band and this record.

Recorded and mixed by guitarist James Bess in their homes directly following 2 major tours of the US in 2014 (and coinciding with the band’s 5th anniversary of their debut performance), Taker hits streets and shelves on August 21,2015 on CD and limited edition vinyl.” -New Granada
