Shredheads! Those dudes Diarrhea Planet took over the Pete and Pete house to shoot the video for their new #hunkrock single "Platinum Girls." The track is off the upcoming EP Aliens In The Outfield, available on vinyl on 11/18/14. You can purchase "Platinum Girls" at infinitycat.com. Stay tuned for details on DP's upcoming festival at Camp Anawanna.


We're excited to welcome JP5 to the fold. We've been big fans of Joey and the gang since we first saw 'em open for Eddie and the Cruisers at Springwater back in '87. In all seriousness, Joey Plunket is one of the best songwriters around. His crack band features Jem Cohen of the Ettes and Adam Meisterhaus, a shredder of the highest caliber. Stay dialed for a debut full-length coming soon.

Baba Java

Futurebirds has partnered with Athens-based coffee roaster Jittery Joe's and the UGA Music Business Program to release the Baba Java Blend, a new medium-bodied coffee "with an up front brightness complemented by orange zest and cherry flavors." The 'birds also compiled a handful of tracks into the Baba Java EP, including a cover of REM's "(Don't Go Back to) Rockville," all of which are available for free with a can of coffee beans or for $1 a pop over here. Remember, the best part of waking up is Futurebirds in your cup.
