We’re pretty stoked to be able to announce our involvement with the release of Gypsy Wig‘s self titled debut EP. Bedside Manner and Kindred Spirits will team up to release it on Friday, July 22 at the Stanhope House, “one of the most prestigious and historically significant clubs in North America.”
Made up of former members of Mi Barrio, Birth Screams, The Centrofusal Trifecta, Dewey and the Decimal System, and Shattered Fortune, Gypsy Wig brings together what sounds like a huge range of influences to create one of the coolest indie rock debuts I’ve heard in a long time. You can hear four Demos at their bandcamp HERE. Keep checking back for more updates on this and other Bedside news.

Their line-up solidified recently with the addition of drummer, Luis Luna who heard their tracks on punknews and immediately showed an interest. He joins the Dead Ringer family with a rather impressive music resume. Click readmore for the 100% FREE download and more info.

These feelings were mashed into, or at least attempted to be mashed into, a band called Shattered Fortune. The band started as a conversation on a bus ride home, and ended just three years later after members wanted to move forward onto new musical projects.
