JERRY PAPER

Every morning Lucas Nathan wakes up, slips into a flowy dress, makes a plate of scrambled eggs, and heads to the studio for a day of absolute jamming as their freaky weirdo musical persona: Jerry Paper. The one rule? NO SELF DOUBT! What came of that creative process is the synth-pop, weird-rock, bizarro-muzak masterpiece: Free Time, an expression of freedom on their journey to self-discovery as a nonbinary artist, groover, and, most importantly, shaker of ass. 
 When Jerry Paper asks you to hit *PLAY* on Free Time, they mean it in the most literal sense of the word…they want you to PLAY around and have some friggin’ fun for once! 
 As Nathan croons in ‘Just Say Play’, “It’s your life, baby, so choose whatever you want!” We can all free ourselves from the rigid demands of the B-B-B-BORING binary system imposed on us by a B-B-B-BORING hetero-normative society. In ‘Myopitopia’, Nathan gazes out their kitchen window in Los Angeles at a dystopic tableau of dented microwaves and industrial decay—the rewards of a world run by technocrats—and asks, is playing by the rules of this game worth it, if all it gets us is a pile of rotten stinky trash and crap?

DOUGIE POOLE

Brooklyn’s Dougie Poole puts his eccentric stamp on country music, melding eerie D.I.Y. bedroom pop textures with a love for classic honky tonk and lonesome, earthy songwriting. His self-released, home-recorded debut, Wideass Highway, earned him a contract with Wharf Cat Records, which issued his more expansive follow-up, The Freelancer’s Blues, in 2020.
