There's no slowing Sweet Spirit singer Sabrina Ellis down. In addition to fronting two extremely busy rock bands (Sweet Spirit and A Giant Dog), she recently recorded and toured behind a new collaboration with Har Mar Superstar called Heart Bones, and starred in a campy Austin stage production of Batman Returns Returns as none other than the Dark Knight himself.

Having been less active in the past few months, it appears Sweet Spirit will return to Ellis' forefront for 2019. The band recently completed tracking a new full-length record with engineer Stuart Sikes (Modest Mouse, Jack White) that will be mixed by Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Spoon) and ready for release by year's end. The band is also hitting the road hard, covering the entire U.S. this Spring with a batch of new songs and the same high octane performances they've become known for.
Help is a noise punk band. Remove fear from decision making. Act in defiant joy. Refuse to dominate others. Do not hoard the gifts of the universe. The future is uncertain. Ends don’t justify means. Solidarity now. Class war now.

"Charts are Portland's Traditionalists, proudly carrying the torch of Classic Pop Songcraft. We are talking about three-chord wonders that are stuck in your head before the first verse is even over. And then there's the chorus. The Charts are also a mess, but a good mess (most of the time), and it would be hard to imagine them any other way."
Raf Spielman, The Woolen Men
