Another Perfect Crime Releases Feminist/Activist Album at Columbia City Theater

SEATTLE – March 3, 2017 – Erupting out of the woods of Seattle is Another Perfect Crime, the Pacific Northwest’s first line of defense against oppression. With deep roots in the PNW indie music scene, Another Perfect Crime was born at Portland’s Ladies Rock Camp, where they vowed to defy a white, cishet, male-dominated music scene with explosive sound and razor-sharp lyrics. On March 26th at the Columbia City Theater, Another Perfect Crime will be celebrating The Flood with Danny Newcomb and the Sugarmakers and MALIDONT.

Composed of Jeanne Mitchell (lead guitar, vocals), Teresa Demel (guitar, vocals), Natalie Walker (bass, vocals), and Cheerful Catunao (drums), Another Perfect Crime is unapologetically political, serving as both a band and a safe place: creating and representing an inclusive music scene. The band is emerging as a community leader in the fight against Making America Horrible Again, as their music takes on even more important meaning. This is Another Perfect Crime: Welcome to the Resistance.

About the Album

The Flood is more than an album. It shakes you awake. It picks you up off the ground and dusts you off. It sees you from across the street and raises a fist in solidarity. The Flood is more than an album. It’s what we need right now.”

In the spirit of the Riot Grrrl, punk, and grunge movements, Another Perfect Crime pays tribute to each respective movement with their own explosive sound, a sound that fuels your protest march as perfectly as your road trip across the desert. You can hear decades of history, resistance, and fight in each track of the band’s newest album, The Flood. As diverse as the fanbase they serve, The Flood is equal part gravel and champagne, nail polish and blood. Each drum beat is a thunderclap, every guitar riff is war cry, and each lyric is a piece of truth that leaves goosebumps in its wake. This is the sound of the Resistance. This is the sound of your own Revolution.

The album was recorded and mixed by Brandon Busch (Sound Media Productions) and mastered by Rachel Field (Resonant Mastering).

Another Perfect Crime Releases Feminist Album at Crocodile Café

For Immediate Release

SEATTLE – June 20, 2012 – Another Perfect Crime, known for inciting change in the Seattle feminist rock movement, will release its new album, You Have to Care at the Crocodile Café on June 27th with bands Cumulus and Tape Stacks. APC, comprised of four women, mocks sexist comments it has endured throughout its career with the song “Boys Night,” now an anthem for the international Girls Rock Camp Alliance.

Natalie Walker, bassist for Another Perfect Crime, founded the Seattle chapter of Rain City Rock Camp for Girls, which not only teaches young girls how to play in rock bands, but also provides lessons about privilege, self-esteem, and self defense. All four band members volunteer their time in the rock camp, and APC has developed a strong following among the growing Rain City Rock Camp community.

Formed in 2006 as a trio, APC’s last album was described by The Stranger as having “bright guitar riffs that sweep you up in energetic flourishes with intricate vocal interplay. Melodies swell into a warm froth of strong, defiant femme-vital pop.” They were joined in mid-2011 by guitarist Jeanne Mitchell, who added an additional aggressive and powerful guitar tone to the band’s notoriously melodic and creative sound. APC has toured the west coast and played locally for the past six years alongside Star Anna, Tea Cozies, Lozen, and the Redwood Plan.

About the Album

You Have to Care is APC’s second full-length record, and embraces the band’s typical style of interweaving melodies, soaring vocals, and story-telling collaboration with new maturity and sonic confidence. The band created an aggressive, yet undeniably melodic declaration, drawing upon their rich musical influences such as Wild Flag, Sunny Day Real Estate, Joy Formidable and PJ Harvey. The album was mixed by David Smith (of the Washover Fans) and Steven Aguilar (The Head and The Heart, Damien Jurado) and mastered by Ed Brooks (RFI). Their CD comes with a 16 page full-color fanzine with photos, lyrics, and insights into their eclectic inner workings and behind the scenes of the making of “You Have to Care” over the past year.

Cumulus

What started out as a solo singer-songwriter outfit has now transformed into the dreamy power pop collaboration of Alexandra Niedzialkowski, Lance Umble, and friends. Described by Sound on the Sound as putting on  “some of the most polished indie pop shows in Seattle” and on the verge of releasing a new EP, Cumulus is a band you don’t want to miss.
