On February 19, 2016 Seth Bogart will release his debut album on Burger Records. The album features guest appearances by Kathleen Hanna, Tavi Gevinson , Clementine Creevy (Cherry Glazerr) , Chela and more. It was co-written and produced by Seth’s old friend Cole MGN (Ariel Pink, Julia Holter, etc) over the last couple years in Los Angeles.
After years of touring with Hunx and His Punx and Gravy Train, Seth was bored out of his mind, abandoned the idea of a “band” , ditched his “Hunx” nickname and basically stopped touring altogether. He moved to LA and shifted his energy to making art. In the years since his last album w/ Hunx and His Punx in 2013, he has contributed artwork to Saint Laurent, opened a store named after his clothing line Wacky Wacko and created installations at galleries including MoCA Geffen Contemporary. During this time he kept on writing songs and making demos with a laptop, a guitar, a microphone and a shitty keyboard he bought for $50. Many of these songs evolved with the help of Cole and ended up on this album. Working on this project he was very inspired by music he grew up loving- Radio Disney, Broadcast, 80s French Pop like Lio and Plastic Bertrand, Le Tigre, Nina Hagen and Kraftwerk.
Realizing that visual art was just as important to him as music, he quickly realized he needed present his music in a new way . This fall he created an installation called “The Seth Bogart Show” that combined music, painting, sculpture, video, and ceramics at 356 S. Mission Road (Ooga Booga 2 ) in Los Angeles. . He is now hard at work planning the traveling live show version of this show so he can soon share it with the world.
