The New Jersey band is currently in the studio recording their 4th full length album (and 2nd for Don Giovanni Records). Hadn't heard of them before? That's ok, me either, but apparently we're among the few at this point.
In 2009 alone, the band appeared with dancing puppets on "Chic-a-Go-Go" a public access TV show in Chicago, on MTV's ALexa Chung show, and lead singer Marissa Paternoster was named Best Shredder in New York City 2009 by Village Voice. Oh, and Dinosaur, Jr, Throwing Muses, Dead Weather and Arctic Monkeys all asked Screaming Females to tour with them last year.
Of course, now, it's Ted Leo & The Pharmacists turn to open your ears to Screaming Females.

while I'm thinking about it, you want a free mp3 of "Arm Over Arm?" - I love it, good guitar work, almost like a less drubbed up Sleater-Kinney.
congrats on making it here, but I've only got a couple other things for you
- it's a video trailer for Coco Rosie's Smokey Taboo off their new album.
- After the Fall are releasing You Don't Have to Sleep To Dream March 20 - they're an unsigned band out of Omaha
