Everyone Is Dirty is a new-wave post-punk rock band that hails from Oakland, CA. Known for their manic live sets, this band is captivating and futuristic, with a strange electricity flowing through their sound. Hard as a pillow sick as a sicko lo-hi-fi grunge with turkish blood filled violin. Twisted sophisticated velvet. Sivan spews words & wails violins. Chris plays guitar and records it with elephant ears. Tyler goes thump on the bass and meow on the pedal steel. Drums attack Jack.  More >

Hypothermic, Goodnight, Texas

Released October 1, 2020
Written by Avi Vinocur and Patrick Dyer Wolf
Vocals, Guitars, Mandolin, Drums: Avi Vinocur
Banjo, Backing Vocals: Patrick Dyer Wolf
Bass: Scott Griffin Padden
Recorded by Goodnight, Texas
Mixed by Scott McDowell
Mastered by Jonathan Kirchner

Goodnight, Texas is the garage roots Appalachian collaboration of San Francisco’s Avi Vinocur (formerly of The Stone Foxes) and North Carolina’s Patrick Dyer Wolf. The band conjures a feeling of a different heavy era in the United States – part 1930s, and part 1860s. The trick: heaviness comes from organic acoustic instruments. In this case, a banjo, acoustic guitar and a 1918 mandolin.
“Hypothermic” is the result – our attempt to tell stories of America’s furthest corner, under a darker headlight, and attempting to sonically capture the heaviness of not only America’s past, but its present.” -Avi Vinocur More >

“This track is for Hannah and Corey. I am so sorry that people are so shitty to one another I desperately wish it were not so. Perhaps we can change that. Black Lives Matter.” More >
