Cassie Ramone @ Trans Pecos in May (more by Chris La Putt)
Cassie

Cassie Ramone has announced her first solo record since Vivian Girls called it quits. The album is titled The Time Has Come and will be out via San Francico label Loglady on August 26. Ariel Pink plays bass on several tracks, and has also written an inner-flap style blurb:

"this is Cassie's first record. she used to sing and play guitar in the vivian girls. she recorded these songs by herself over the last year or so. she hopes you like the record. goodbye." - Ariel Pink
Maybe you saw Cassie playing some of her solo stuff at our BV-RBSS show at Baby's All Right with Woods, Weyes Blood and The Woolen Men in April, or at Trans Pecos in May. Check out a song from the new LP -- "Hangin On" is streamable below.

Cassie's other band, The Babies, seem to be on hiatus since Kevin Morby (who used to be in Woods) moved to the West Coast. Kevin is currently working on his second solo album and will be on tour with Steve Gunn this fall. They'll play NYC at Baby's All Right on August 22 with American Primitivism guitarist Daniel Bachman and powerhouse psych folk singer Weyes BloodTickets for that show are on sale now.

Kevin's also doing a stint with Real Estate as well as other dates. All are listed, along with the new Cassie Ramone song, below...

Friends,

I really do hope she implores that classic CR sound of a monotone voice throughout the entire album. It's gonna be tits up.

Bro,

I really hope you look up the definition of 'implore'.

Why does she looks like she's always recovering from a bender

^because she is! Cassie is a sweetheart, but she drinks too much.

Imagine what some of these acts sound like with all that reverb.

Posted by Anonymous | July 10, 2014 4:19 PM

I love Cassie, but I like it better when she's playing uptempo rock'n'roll. Hopefully we'll see her in another good combo soon.

So many New Yorkers moving out to Cali these days. Either I'm missing out on something or the trust fund has truly run out.

^ Imma go back to Cali where I can implore her big-boobed friend, who now lives there, to get down wit me.

Dear 4:19,

I'm fairly certain you meant WITHOUT all that reverb, right? CR and her Brooklyn friends, like Frankie 'I pose nude for PR' Rose only know how to use so much fucking reverb that it masks their lack of ... well, anything.

I implore you to listen to other music.

3:59, Yo! Mr. Pink is a trustfunder himself and lacks a serious degree of talent. Get wit da program.

I'm a woman and I love chick rock and dug the first Vivian Girls record, but this is so boring. Knock it off Cassie.

Upon evaluating your concerns, I concur with your judgement of Ms. Ramone. However, I implore you to use proper grammar. After writing "I'm a woman", you're going to need a comma after "woman". If you had left out the "I", that wouldn't have been necessary. You understand the difference and why, right? Also, you need a comma before distinguishing that you're speaking in Cassie in that last sentence. Outside of that, way to go, sweetheart.

Vivian Girls and Babies ruled. Rule. For truth. 12:06, YOU suck.

That first Babies record is pretty killer. Write it down, take a picture. I don't give a fuck.

she's a rude person irl

You'd think she would have learned how to play guitar at some point.

Posted by Anonymous | July 11, 2014 11:14 AM

these threads about Cassie Ramone are always full of bitter exes + frankie rose's friends and are completely unrepresentative of the opinions of anyone who is rational or pleasant/satisfied with their lives.

Seriously, pretty hateful trashy folks.

the truth is cassie r is a sweet gal who has written a terrific catalog of songs. Like the rest of the music scene, she's a drinker. so what of that?

Posted by Anonymous | July 11, 2014 11:56 AM

I'm pleasant and satisfied with my life, but there's no way around it - this music fucking sucks.

Posted by Anonymous | July 11, 2014 12:04 PM

It really does. This is painfully bad.

Posted by Anonymous | July 11, 2014 12:10 PM

This song certainly isn't a highlight of her discography, but I'll certainly give the LP a few spins. In my eyes, every LP she's been a part of has been good-to-amazing, and I'll continue listening to the 1st and 3rd Viv records and both Babies records religiously for years.

Woman-hating, music-hating dicks don't get an opinion on this.

Her tarot reading at the Parquet Courts show was the last straw for me. No, I do not want some drunk white chick reading my tarot cards.
