The Skinny: Minneapolis-natives Bad Bad Hats will release their debut full-length, Psychic Reader, on July 17 via Afternoon Records (Yellow Ostrich, Haley Bonar). The album is comprised of experimental beats, growling guitars, and catchy pop melodies with vocals that are both dreamy and strikingly deep.

The band previously released gritty garage single “Shame,” featuring an irresistible bass line and wailing guitar. Today, the trio shares “Psychic Reader,” an epic cinematic track perfect for a warm summer drive with the windows rolled down.


Born in 2003, V13 was a socio-political website that, in 2005, morphed into PureGrainAudio and spent 15 years developing into one of Canada's (and the world’s) leading music sites. On the eve of the site’s 15th anniversary, a full re-launch and rebrand takes us back to our roots and opens the door to a full suite of Music, Film, TV, and Cultural content.
