Babe Club is an indie rock-new wave band from Charleston, South Carolina. The band is comprised of members from SUSTO : multi-instrumentalist Corey Campbell (SC) and singer-songwriter Jenna Desmond (NY). The pair met and began collaborating in 2013. There was instant chemistry and after touring heavily together in SUSTO, Babe Club formed very naturally. Babe Club is preparing to release a full length album in early 2019.

Fredrick the Younger: You can draw favorable comparisons here to St. Vincent or Angel Olsen, playful beats with a new wave undercurrent that carry remarkable vocals. As an indicator for things to come, this promises to be a remarkable album.

Human Resources is an American alternative pop-rock band from Charleston, SC. Formed in 2015 by Dries Vandenberg, Aaron Utterback, Paul Chelmis, and Matt Zutell, HR quickly adopted a unique role in the blossoming Charleston music scene as a more pop-centric counterpart to the neo-southern and indie rock acts prevalent in the area at the time. 

The band’s debut single “Queen” and the subsequent L.P. En Route (2015) were released to positive local reviews, earning noteworthy traction on Spotify and other streaming services. The debut played a key role in earning HR the “Electronic/Experimental Band of the Year” award from the Charleston City Paper. 

The follow-up campaign Pizza Dreams (2016) matched the trajectory of it’s predecessor, eventually earning the band a second consecutive City Paper Award, and producing another successful single, “Bad News” which helped the band extend its reach to the national level. 

In 2017 Human Resources began work on their third release. As with En Route and Pizza Dreams, the band will utilize the talents of drummer Matt Zutell (Coast Records) for the majority of the production needs, continuing a long standing tradition of self production. In addition to Zutell, HR will tap LA based producer Taylor Locke, founding member of Rooney, at his studio The Velveteen Laboratory for initial production work.
