1) : The first lp of your band upset will  going to be released this fall can you want to talk of it  ?  what are the  themes of the songs in this lp ?

Ali Koehler  : Yes the album is coming out Fall 2013. I’m very excited for people to hear it. It’s a pop record and a punk record and it’s just a load of fun. Fun with substance. It’s got all your standard themes on it: rejection, infatuation, bitterness, self-doubt, etc.

2) Last year you have released a good tape ep, how this ep help you to be the front singer in this project ? 

Thanks! I kinda just put that out cause someone asked if they could and I thought « Why not? It’s not doing any good sitting on my hard drive. » I’ve been sort of studying my favorite bands and dissecting what it is about them that I love and trying to make that my own.”

Ali Koehler (Ex-Best Coast/Vivian Girls) and Patty Schemel (Ex-Hole) Form New Band Upset | News | Pitchfork

Ali Koehler is best known as a drummer– first in Vivian Girls and then in Best Coast. Koehler announced she was leaving the latter group in December 2011, but mentioned her intention to keep playing music.

Now, Koehler is leading a new but likeminded band, Upset, alongside ex-Hole drummer Patty Schemel. (According to an interview with MTV Hive, they met over Twitter.) The band’s lineup also features guitarist Jenn Prince.

Upset’s debut, She’s Gone, is out October 29 through New Jersey punk label Don Giovanni. (Koehler is a Jersey native herself.) The album was recorded at Koehler’s home in L.A. by Kyle Gilbride of Swearin’, who has recently recorded albums for his own band and Waxahatchee. Gilbride also sang on the record’s closer “You and I”. Check out the melancholy track “Oxfords and Wingtips” above and the tracklist below.

After Vivian Girls and Best Coast, Ali Koehler Regroups With Upset | MTV Hive

331ebc4313c1c5e80c136664922597f1“The story of Ali Koehler’s new band, Upset, begins with Koehler being totally bummed out after getting kicked out of Best Coast, continues to a point where she just started randomly texting Patty Schemel of Hole, and somehow ends up at a Gentleman’s Club where Ke$ha is making it rain on strippers.

“I didn’t really know what I wanted out of life after getting kicked out of Best Coast,” Koehler says. “The rug was kind of pulled out from under my feet. Ever since I graduated college, I went on tour with Vivian Girls, and then with Best Coast, and it was go-go-go-go-go! But afterwards, I had a lot of time to myself at my house to just sit and think. It was a very difficult time for me.”
