Earlier this year, Los Angeles-based musician, artist and DIY / queer icon Seth Bogart announced his new project Seth Bogart Presents….Men On The Verge Of Nothing. And then 2020 happened…. Out of respect for world events, the much anticipated new album was postponed. Today Bogart shares the great news of a new release date of September 25thon label imprint Wacky Wacko Recordings, along with the exciting double release of new tracks “Dawn’s Lips” and “Lavender Heights”.
“Dawn’s Lips” was originally written for a new soundtrack for Welcome To The Dollhouse, performed live at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. With drums from Tobi Vail of Bikini Kill, vocals by Roxanne Clifford of Veronica Falls / Patience and additional guitars by Alana Amram, “Dawn’s Lips” is a testament to Bogart’s DIY tenacity and spirit of indie collaboration.
“Lavender Heights” is a breezy uptempo song that carries some deeper connotation below the surface. “In my 20s and early 30s I was struggling with major depression involving my fathers suicide and not knowing how to deal with it. I would often escape thru drugs and alcohol. One weekend my friends and I took mushrooms and went to see Britney Spears in Sacramento and afterwards found ourselves partying in the gay neighborhood AKA Lavender Heights. This song is about that time, and what an oblivious time it was to be alive. Oblivious to our privilege. Oblivious to the racial inequalities and never-ending list of problems that are now so in our face with social media that anyone with a conscience can no longer ignore and pretend everything is OK.”
Seth Bogart Presents….Men on the Verge of Nothing is available for pre-order now; the first 200 physical copies printed on red vinyl with non-censored album art and additionally paired in bundle packs with tote bags, beach towels and bandanas designed by Seth Bogart. Stay tuned for more from Seth Bogart, including a remix from U.S. Girls for “Boys Who Don’t Wanna Be Boys” (Dero Arcade) and more news soon !
