"Permanent Collection, “It’s Alright” MP3"

Rad new shoegaze-for-sunny-days from San Francisco’s Permanent Collection, led by Jason Hendardy, formerly of Young Prisms and one-half of the force behind the Twin Peaks-referencing DIY rock label Loglady. Permanent Collection’s debut LP, Newly Wed Nearly Dead, was recorded with a full band and produced by Monte Vallier, of Ruminator, and Kramer, whose insane discography includes producing for Galaxie 500 and Low and playing bass for Butthole Surfers and Ween; together they’ve imparted that genuinely classic late-’80s/early-’90s sound of American indie rock coming of age. The album comes out August 7th on Loglady.

"Jason From Young Prisms Has A New Band"

“It’s Alright,” the latest track from San Francisco’s Permanent Collection, is a head-bobbing synth-pop dreamer. The four-piece brings you all your favorite fuzzy, shoegaze-y vibes in a song about the poignancy of love and the human condition.

The video will make you wish Permanent Collection were your best friends. The band plays with their food at a deliciously greasy diner, but not before hijacking a dude’s car as easily as pressing “Y” during Grand Theft Auto. After downing some 40's in the backseat, they head to a party to chill in coffins and play with sparklers. Solid.

Jason Hendardy, previously of Young Prisms, began Permanent Collection as a solo project in 2011, but picked up guitarist Brenden Nerfa, bassist Megan Dabkowski, and drummer Mike Stillman later in the year to round out a full band. The new album, Newly Wed, Nearly Dead, is set for release on August 7th on LogLady Records (you’re welcome, Twin Peaks nerds). With the combined talents of Monte Vallier (from Ruminator Audio and Swell/Half Church) and Kramer (Low and Galaxie 500 producer), we couldn’t be more excited for the rest of the album.

Permanent Collection started as the solo project of Jason Hendardy in 2011. The 12” EP Delirium was released last summer on San Francisco’s LogLady Records. The record is a template of what has become the Permanent Collection sound: pop structures swathed in hazy guitars. In late 2011, Hendardy recruited locals Megan Dabkowski, Brenden Nerfa and Mike Stillman and immediately began collaboration with them to write the first full-band album in their new rough-and-tumble practice space in San Francisco’s notorious Bayview District.

Robert Christgau described Sonic Youth as “not peering into the fissure (but) barreling down the turnpike like the fissure ain’t there.” No other contemporary pop group strives to mine that mentality like San Francisco’s Permanent Collection does. The band’s punk infused, fuzzed out pop will leave your ears ringing and your heart stinging. For the forthcoming LP, Newly Wed Nearly Dead the band turned to cult music icons Monte Vallier (of Swell/Half-Church and owner of Ruminator Audio) and Kramer (producer of groups such as Galaxie 500 and Low) for recording and mastering. Carving out new territory for the band, this album will have your brain crooning and undoubtedly fall into your subconscious.
