New Orleans, Louisiana’s ALL PEOPLE have premiered their new full length, Learn Forget Repeat! ALL PEOPLE, whose members include Community Records co-founders Daniel “D-Ray” Ray and Greg Rodrigue, seek to bring people together through quality music, and its unique combination of angular riffs, off-kilter hooks, and life-affirming lyrics, Learn Forget Repeat is the most focused encapsulation of the band’s mission statement yet. Stereogum magazine praised the album, calling it “an inventive post-punk record that manages to avoid the genre’s patented towering, sinister instrumentals, and instead leaves room for all of the sonic possibilities in-between.”
Learn Forget Repeat is due out May 5th on vinyl and digital from Community Records in partnership with Asian Man Records, as well as a limited cassette release from Broken World Media. The album is now available for preorder from Asian Man Records and Community Records. After numerous performances at SXSW, and having just completed a five week tour, which included appearances at Bufu Records Fest and Broken World Media Fest, All People will continue their relentless schedule with another run of U.S. shows. This time the band will be teaming with their Community Records labelmates, Pope, as well as Boyfriend Material on select dates.
All People are a four piece band out of New Orleans, Louisiana who are committed to taking their sounds and ideas beyond the reaches of their hometown. Learn Forget Repeat is the band’s second full-length album of organ driven melodic post-punk, and will be released on their own DIY label — Community Records, in conjunction with Asian Man Records & Broken World Media. Learn Forget Repeat invokes some of the diverse and aggressive sounds of the early ‘90s — taking influence from Fugazi and late-era Jawbreaker along with melody and chord structure absorbed from their hometown.
The album was recorded at the Living Room Studio in New Orleans, and was engineered by James Whitten (Thou, The Body, A Wilhelm Scream) and was mastered by Jamal Ruhe at West West Side Studio. Robert Landry (drummer) and Greg Rodrigue (bassist / vocalist) form one of the tighter rhythm sections in their city with great tone and pace allowing Daniel “D-Ray” Ray (organ / trombone / vocals) and former member and studio guitarist Zach Quinn to go on explosive tangents.
All People‘s music and message extends beyond the stage and studio with Greg and D-Ray co-founding New Orleans based DIY label Community Records in 2008. The label was named amongst the best labels of 2014 by Impose Magazine and its roster boasts many talented up-and-coming acts such as Caddywhompus, Pope, Sun Hotel, Woozy, as well as working with Donovan Wolfington, Native America and many others on their releases.
In addition to the band’s members being committed to sharing quality music with the world via Community Records, All People take their energetic live show on the road in the most environmentally responsible way possible. The band travel from show to show via an eco-friendly diesel engine van that is powered by waste vegetable oil and has completed over 150 tour dates since summer of 2013. With the band’s extensive 2015 touring schedule, the veggie van is likely to log quite a few more miles.
