Listen to a new Ali Koehler song: “Not Like Me”

“We are extremely honoured to unveil a sweet sweet slice of indie pop this week. It comes from Ali Koehler, a very talented young woman who has put in a good amount of time behind the drums for bands such as Vivian Girls and Best Coast. These days you’ll find her working on her own recordings; infact ‘Not Like Me’ was written exclusively for the Pizza Club in Ali’s living room and recorded in rehearsal rooms in Echo Park.

The song itself is a melodic but all-too-short stroll through tales of not being able to leave the house and doing “stuff to keep you busy whilst you die”. Despite all of this bleakness, there’s something about ‘Not Like Me’ that transcends the melancholy and turns it into a joyful lesson of how to do self depreciation properly.

The one physical Pizza Box copy of this release will go live at the slightly later time of 3pm, and will be available from our Bandcamp. In the meantime enjoy the free download above or from our Soundcloud.”
