In our theist-thumbing, crucifix-hugging country, one Orland-based cassette label, led by one brave bottom-feeder, stands up for pagans everywhere. They are Godless America. And they do not take their name that seriously. Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if CEO Jordan Duttinger doesn’t take anything seriously. He’s just a man who loves music, so much so that he’s spent seven years slinging tapes for a variety of independent acts. And this Saturday at St. Matthews Tavern, Jordan will be celebrating his 30th Birthday the only way he knows how, with a show packed full of nonbelievers, rhythmically sinning until the sun rises.
Hold on to your butts, because he’s also releasing two new cassingles. As if that long-winded spiel wasn’t enough, I bring you a taste of what Saturday night, featuring: Saucy Yoda, Pasty Cline, Tam Tam The Sandwich Man, and Sayonara. Enjoy.
Garage goddess Saucy Yoda is making the journey to Orlando from Portland, and she’s bring a hot new cassingle with her. “Melatonin” is sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and spicy, all at the same time. If my eardrums could taste, they’d be both confused and satisfied.
Pasty Cline is also celebrating the birth of a beautiful baby cassingle. Her name is Miley. Appropriate, given that Side A of this baby is a cover of Miley Cyrus’ #1 single, “Wrecking Ball.” Listen for yourself, but I think Pasty’s take is heartbreaking and hilarious at the same time.
Tam Tam The Sandwich Man
It’s his birthday and he’ll play if he wants to. Jordan will be jumping behind the kit and doing what he does best.
Sayonara will be playing their debut show on Saturday. This brand new Orlando band features members of The Palmettes and Wet Nurse, so chances are, it’s probably not going to suck.
