• RIYL: Joanna Gruesome, White Lung, Big Eyes


Tiny Engines is excited to welcome NYC's Mannequin Pussy to the roster. The label will be re-releasing the band's debut full-length,Gypsy Pervert, on vinyl for the first time this Summer.

The band recently premiered a video for "Clue Juice" from Gypsy Pervert. You can check that out on Impose. You can also listen to the song on Soundcloud. More album details and song premieres coming soon!

Originally begun as a duo between childhood friends, Mannequin Pussy expanded to a three-piece for their debut album, Gypsy Pervert. The beefed up sound is evident from the beginning as the band shifts seamlessly from grungey punk rock blasts to more textured shoegazey pop. Clocking in at less than 20 minutes, Gypsy Pervert sways urgently back and forth. Raw and confrontational yet still melodic and inviting, Mannequin Pussy show off a diverse palette on their debut album.
