Some albums are like a party in a box - put it on the stereo and you know you're going to have a good time. Plushgun's Pins and Panzers bounces in to the room, passes out the party favours, hands you a drink and tells your ass to dance. The pumping synth lines are a perfect foil to Daniel Ingala's sensitive wordsmith tendencies that work to create addictive indie-pop with a bittersweet edge.Plushgun is the brainchild of Daniel Ingala and grew out of the cramped confines of his overpriced and undersized bedroom in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. After creating the song "Just Impolite" and posting it to his MySpace page, the project quickly took off with songs featured in the web-TV series "We Need Girlfriends" and rising to #1 in the Alternative Rock Channel on When he was ready to start playing live shows, Ingala recruited his friends Taylor Armstrong and Matt Bogdanow.Plushgun released a self-titled EP in August 2008, followed by a November EP of remixes by Andrew WK, Jesse Novak (M.I.A., Santogold) and Justin Strauss (Depeche Mode, Marc Almond, Carl Cox). A Don Diablo remix was released in early 2009. Plushgun is thrilled to see the worldwide release of Pins & Panzers in 2009!The band shot a music video for "Just Impolite" with director Tyler Shields, featuring Juno Temple ("The Other Boleyn Girl," "Atonement," "Notes on a Scandal," and upcoming "Mr. Nobody" and "The Year One"), Brittany Snow ("Hairspray," "Prom Night," and upcoming Gossip Girl spinoff "Valley Girl"") and Shiloh Fernandez ( "Cadillac Records" and "The United States of Tara"). Plushgun also created a video for "Let Me Kiss You Now (And I'll Fade Away)", $99 for the shoot, $600 for the beer.Having played CMJ and SXSW in 2008, Plushgun has been busy touring America, Canada and Spain in 2009, and look to visit Germany, Spain and the UK this fall.Pins & Panzers features cover art by Patrick Smith (, and is the third Plushgun release to feature original credited work by an up and coming Brooklyn artist; the other two were done by Yoko Furusho (single for "Dancing in a Minefield,"( and Beth Newell ( who did the self-titled EP art.
