"Permanent Press – Tonight ft. Amber Strother"

I’m a pretty strong supporter of Permanent Press and love when they give me new music to listen to. Tonight is off their Ghosts Are Real EP which can be downloaded/streamed here: Permanent Press – Ghosts Are Real. This track features the talented Amber Strother who recently sang on an Evidence track off his upcoming LP. Amber definitely adds a great addition with her vocals, the chorus is still resonating in my head which must mean I should play this track again (for the 3rd time). I think this may be my favorite from Permanent Press, take a listen and tell me what you think! Also be on the look out for a video which should be arriving shortly. -

"Permanent Press (feat. D.Schwartz) – “Something I Do”"

The NY/LA duo Permanent Press link up w/ Rock The Bells co-host D.Schwartz for some soulful lyricism. Twist one, put your feet up and listen. -

Single - "Bret Easton Ellis" (2009)



Permanent Press is the anti-gimmick.

The group was formed on a whim after Cody recorded a verse over a beat that The James had sent him.

The James had no clue if anything would materialize out of it. All he knew was that his college buddy Dave, who'd grown up with Cody on Long Island, was constantly praising Cody's lyrical ability.

The verse Cody sent back to The James did not disappoint. That verse ended up being the basis for their first track, "Dakota Fanning".

Shortly after, while Cody was visiting LA, the two made tentative plans to write some more material. When they got around to it, the creative synergy was blindingly apparent. Only then did the two realize they had something real on their hands.

Since then, the duo have been cultivating their unique brand of studied lyricism and genre bending musical backdrops. They've performed with national acts such as Soul Live and have rocked the biggest LA and NY venues.

They just released their 1st music video to much acclaim and praise ( The video for their song "Tonight" was featured on numerous influential and well known blogs.

The group is currently prepping a mixtape with Deckstar DJ Tony Martinez. The tape will be sponsored by the trend setting LA fashion line Kid Dangerous.

The success of Permanent Press stems from the organic nature in which it was formed. There was no marketing plan, no calculated "industry" moves. The catalyst was the excitement the two got out of making powerful music. This is what continues to drive them.

Stay tuned...
