When she isn’t in class at Northeastern or creating doodles for her mom to embroider, Boston-based Sidney Gish is writing, playing, recording and mixing her own music in her dorm room – and she has a 7.7 Pitchfork rating on her latest release ‘NO DOGS ALLOWED’ to show for it. We had the chance to talk with Sidney about her writing process, identity, and – of course – Carrie Brownstein.

Sticky-sweet but never cloying, Pearl and the Oysters’ eponymous debut album is equal parts fantastical space opera and cult 60’s beach movie. We were honored to have the chance to chat with the band about their debut album and what comes next.
