THE SOFT WHITE SIXTIES
San Francisco’s The Soft White Sixties are a hard-driving, original rock and roll band that delivers R&B grooves and pop hooks with the transformative power of raw soul. They have been described as "a perfect mix of on the side of a railroad track blues and early seventies psych-meets-arena-rock" (Owl Mag) and likened to "a feast of Hamm’s ale and cheap cigarettes on the porch with Duane Allman and Dan Auerbach" (Sacramento Press).
"Attendees who bump the seminal Nuggets garage rock compilations might suggest that a concoction of fun-loving, acid-tinged soul and bluesy guitar-rock co-indicates, on paper, gleefully chaotic and uneven musicianship. Perish the thought: the Sixties mold their muse into a modern soul-rock machine via a tight performance unencumbered by the large accompanying volumes of booze." --SF Weekly
Sheffield, UK-based romantics, The Crookes, are pleased to announce their 3rd LP, SOAPBOX, becoming the first band to release three full-length albums on Fierce Panda since indie heroes Death Cab For Cutie. Over the past four years they have also released a string of stand alone singles, one mini-album, and racked up an international gig-count that puts most other modern bands to shame, prompting Steve Lamacq to describe them as “one of the most hardworking and prolific bands of the underground.”
