Brett Newski - Life Upside Down
Known by many as the first band ever to be kicked out of Wal-Mart for playing an illegal show, Brett Newski & the No Tomorrow revive the 90's with their third LP Life Upside Down.
After living in Vietnam for two years, Newski went on to play over 1200 shows on every continent except Antarctica. Most recently he's been supporting Violent Femmes, PIXIES, Manchester Orchestra, Chuck Ragan, & New Pornographers in the US.
Life Upside Down was produced by Hutch Harris of Sub-Pop & Saddle Creek legends The Thermals and engineered by Beau Sorenson (Death Cab for Cutie, Superchunk, Bob Mould), "Life Upside Down" is a beautiful catharsis to a happier brain and sense of belonging. If you frequently find yourself stuck in your own head traffic, this record might help get you free.
Brett Newski has certainly kicked his own ass over the past 6 years, touring infinitely (mostly alone) and wandering down the rabbit hole of anxiety, depression, and wallowing self-doubt. All of these negatives have blossomed into positive creative energy on his third LP.
"Anxiety can actually be a good thing. If you use it right, that nervous energy can be channeled into motivation or creativity," explains Newski. "Even the most seemingly confident people have self doubt."
"Loudest acoustic act ever." -Daytrotter
"I like the sound and the way he is forcing the world to contend with him." -Brian Ritchie, Violent Femmes
"Good proper Midwestern indie rock." -Matthew Logan Vasquez, Delta Spirit
