I'm Jeanette, a miscreant.
Here are some thoughts, largely devoted to music and movies and other things that folks talk about in poorly lit coffee shops. I live in Brooklyn, I drink my espresso over ice.
Sharon’s really important to me. She played the first show I ever booked. She helped get me my first internship. She was the first artist I interviewed with a digital voice recorder. I owe a lot to her and her amazing music.
In this issue you can enjoy: an interview with Miss Franklin Cosmos herself, Ben’s top 10 shows he’s been to at The Dev, Cassandra’s ode to her teenage tastes, Colleen’s interview with Nick of TOTALLY RUINED CIRCUITS, George’s love letter to The Unicorns (who are people too), Quinn’s Q&A with Yellerkin, more of Marc’s favorite podcasts, Andi’s interview with our boys at DOUBLE DOUBLE WHAMMY, Olivia’s guide to concert etiquette, Mary’s convo with The Intermission Project, Raf’s songs for sleepless nights, and more!

Well, this fucking video right here right now can I please get an AMEN!? SHITTTTTT. You guys. What the hell. Moon Bounce had this shit on everybody’s favorite website in the world, FANGORIA! How beautiful. Ian put it perfectly — horror and beautiful music coming together makes me SO HAPPY. LOVE IT. WATCH NOW. BE AFRAID.
Band Practice is the recently adopted moniker of super pal and all-around badass Jeanette Wall. And in her Brooklyn apartment with a beat-up guitar she spins beautiful little pearls in the form of pop songs and then sprinkles them down onto her Bandcamp page. Stripped-down and simplistically sweet, her songs find melody in the mundanity of everyday life, similar to the way that other ladies like Frankie Cosmos or Infinity Crush do.
On “Freddy,” one of several horror-themed ditties she’s been kicking around inside her head, she looks to everyone’s favorite dream killer Freddy Krueger for a metaphor befitting the up’s and down’s of a complicated relationship. She claims that it’s just a silly song, and I don’t know about you, but I’m in the mood for a little bit of silly right now.
