Plates Of Cake
with WFMU DJ Paul Bruno
For the past few years Honey Radar, from Philadelphia by way of Indiana, has released cassettes, cd-rs, and lathe-cut singles at a breakneck pace, turning heads in underground rock circles. Blank Cartoon – their first LP for What’s Your Rupture? records – was released this past May to high acclaim, with Pitchfork naming it one of the “best underground garage rock albums of 2016.” They will be joined by Brooklyn’s Plates Of Cake whose third album Becoming Double was released earlier this year garnering favorable comparisons to The Soft Boys, The Go-Betweens, and Nick Lowe. Also on the bill is Baltimore’s Other Colors who play “exploratory pop” and have a new record out on Friends Records, as well as NYC-based Bronze Float, whose understated rock has been compared to Arthur Russell, Skip Spence and Sebadoh.
