"Tonight in Music: Another Perfect Crime, Kyle Kinane, Kung Fu Grindhouse, and more"

First it needs to be said that Another Perfect Crime have a great name. Then it needs to be said that they’re a solid band. The now-Seattle band that met at the Portland Ladies Rock Camp four years ago is still out and about, helping to prove the usefulness and productivity of rock programs. They released Get Out! in late 2009 to positive reviews and are playing plenty of shows around town. Another Perfect Crime exemplify the far-reaching influence of labels like Kill Rock Stars and bands like Sonic Youth of the mid-to-late nineties–angsty, politically motivated girl rock with a sometimes-angry edge. Melody meshed with jangly bits of discord. Check them out tonight as they open for Seattle rock veteran Carrie Akre. - SSG

"Album Review: Get Into the Another Perfect Crime's Get Out!"

Another Perfect Crime
Get Out!

Get Out!, the self-released debut CD by Seattle trio Another Perfect Crime, will amble its way into your ears and heart if you give it a few spins. The 10-song disc—mixed by Graig Markel (Head Like a Kite, Transmissionary Six, Animals at Night)—is the handiwork of Teresa Demel (guitar, vocals, acoustic guitar), Natalie Walker (bass, vocals, acoustic guitar), and Rebecca Gutterman (drums, guitar, e-bow). Four years ago, the trio bonded at Portland's Ladies Rock Camp, and they've been honing their popwise chops ever since, issuing the Show Don't Tell EP in 2008, which garnered them airplay on The End's Locals Only program and on Hollow Earth Radio.
Get Out! reveals a group steeped in Northwest indie-label aesthetics, with the scrappy, lo-fi DIY spirit of K and Kill Rock Stars' rosters infiltrating Another Perfect Crime's own creations. Traces of Sleater-Kinney and the all-female '90s Sub Pop band Jale—a sort of tart tunefulness and compositional concision—also seep into APC's songwriting. (Commit to Another Perfect Crime, and go to Jale.)

"Paris" starts the album with a confident skipping rhythm and fuzzy yet bright guitar riffs that sweep you up in energetic flourishes while the ladies engage in intricate vocal interplay. "Ich bin ein Berliner" follows with some winsome K-style indie pop, peppered with peppy hand claps and capped with a soaring chorus. "Reckless" is perhaps the full-length's peak, its melody swooping and swelling into a warm froth of strong, defiant femme-vital pop with the memorable unison-voiced refrain of "I'm reckless, I'm wicked/Erased, I don't care."

At times, Get Out! slides into slower, sentimental numbers that might cause some to long for the band's more upbeat material. And "The Real American," a caustic denigration of George W. Bush and Sarah Palin's bigotry, idiocy, and general wrongheadedness over a lurching, martial rhythm, is a bit didactic. But on winsome, sparkly numbers such as "95%," "Pirate," and "A Warning for Marian Crane," Another Perfect Crime show that they have the wiles to charm their way onto any indie-pop fan's iPod.

"Matt Driscoll - Weekly Volcano Recommendations"

Another Perfect Crime - a Seattle based, all-female threesome built on well constructed pop rock songs and endearing harmonies - will set up show at Le Voyeur in Olympia. They'll be in town to rock, and by all accounts, there'll be no stopping them.
Let the Sletaer Kinney comparisons fly. Or for the more savvy readers out there, maybe a Mary Timony point of reference is more appropriate.
While, usually, I'd shy away from such obvious lazy musical comparisons of Another Perfect Crime's sound, in this case, both are warranted - and both should peak your interest about a band many have likely never heard of.
Formed in 2006 after meeting at Portland Ladies Rock Camp, Another Perfect Crime has been slowly spreading their moody and sometimes swirling musical magic. Edgy guitars that chop down the biggest of music's established, formulaic trees, and vocals as soft and pleasant as a spring afternoon - Another Perfect Crime has all the makings (of) a truly special band. Their debug CD, Show Don't Tell, which was released this month, should start to put that fact on display. From the four songs on the CD currently available on Myspace - perhaps it already has.

"Baby Sue - CD EP Review"

If you're looking for a super slick sound and a band that has already been cleaned up for the mass market, Show Don't Tell may not be your cup of tea. But if, however, you like getting in on a good thing on the ground floor while the band members are still fine-tuning their sound and image...well then, we would heartily recommend you check out Another Perfect Crime. While the band members themselves compare their music to Sleater-Kinney, in our minds their music has much more in common with the critically acclaimed (but vastly underrated) 1990s band Zuzu's Petals. The songs on Show Don't Tell are slightly odd and abstract...but by no means irritating or trashy. These ladies create smart, inventive songs that do not follow traditional patterns. The songs are presented simply using only the bare essentials (drums, bass, guitar, vocals). Our guess is that these three talented ladies will be an instant hit with other underground musicians and ultra-cool writers. Snappy little tracks include "Show Don't Tell," "For You," and "Reflections." Neat stuff. (Rating: 5) -

"CD Release Show Preview"

Seattle own Another Perfect Crime along with Benjamin Bear and Alicia Dara, will be performing tunes from their up and coming new EP titled, Show Don’t Tell. Melodic and somewhat eerie at times the new tracks showcase the soaring ranges and quirky beats of this delicate threesome. The EP will feature two new, never been heard before songs and four other more well known tracks. You can expect that the new sounds will echo the d.i.y. creativity and expressiveness indicative of these three unique ladies.

“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.”

Erupting out of the darkest 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.

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.
