Eskimo Sister Releases Full-Length Debut, ‘Kids These Days’

Sunday, February 22nd, 2015

“You waved back and then I farted”

Lo-fi/tweemo pioneers Eskimo Sister (ex-Yo Soy Milk and Free Cake for Every Creature) have been teasing you with a demo here and there (not to mention a killer twitter presence), and now they’re pleased (but probably not) to bring you their debut full-length, Kids These Days.

Featuring shared vocal duties from Johnny Murphy, Brandon Dyer, and Giulia Morrone, Kids These Days fits right in with the ever-burgeoning lo-fi scene that you might have seen showcased on this site by Free Cake for Every Creature, but Eskimo Sister injects their own brand of sadness/silliness/sweetness that makes the record a joy to listen to. I mean, come on, the opening track features the following gem of a verse:

had a dream I shot paul mccartney
the bullet went through his head
then it his morrisey
now they both are dead

And that’s just the first song on the record, folks. “Chinatown” is still one of the better and catchier tracks released in the Skidmore music scene as of late, and “Virginity Dirge” showcases Murphy’s ever-impressive penchant for alt-country, while the aforementioned opening track features some killer shreds on the part of Brandon Dyer. Stylistically, the band covers some pretty impressive ground with Kids These Days, but it’s all very much in the realm of their patented sound that fills some much needed gaps in the music scene here at Skidmore.

You can download the album for free on Eskimo Sister’s Bandcamp, so don’t hesitate to do so and make Murphy and co. a little bit happier.

Eskimo Sister Releases Debut Single “OK”

Monday, November 17th, 2014

Is that a cucumber?

Twee-Pop/Lo-Fi band Eskimo Sister have finally graced us with a recording, so swing on over to their Bandcamp and give a listen to “OK.” This is a hot one, as it features the line: “i cut myself shaving and it was the best thing to happen all week,” so hop on that name-your-price download right now.

Eskimo Sister formed at the beginning of this semester. It addition to their debut performance at the student band showcase back September, they saddened up the rickety Falstaff’s stage just the other week when they opened for Kitten Forever. The band features Brandon Dyer ’15 (featured bassist for Free Cake for Every Creature), Johnny Murphy ’15 (formerly of Yo Soy Milk, presently of Johnny Murphy), Giulia Morrone ’15, and Eric Lemaire ’15.

Concerning their future, the band wrote on their Facebook:

uhh I guess we’ll be sporadically recording songs whenever we feel like it and releasing them whenever they sound good. we don’t know what the album will be called yet but there’s going to be one. unless we break up, which is entirely possible. actually, never mind, we’re probably not going to release any more music.


Sounds promising to me. They also tweet, and they don’t suck at it. Like them on Facebook and keep an eye out for future material/performances/amusing status updates.
