Since the birth of the label in 1997, FatCat has always had a solid engagement with material sent to us as demos. Where numerous labels will throw demos straight into the trash unopened, at FatCat we've always made an effort to listen and reply to every demo received. Numerous FatCat artists have been picked up having been discovered in this way (including Frightened Rabbit, The Twilight Sad, David Karsten Daniels, Welcome, Odonis Odonis, Get Back Guinozzi!, Silje Nes, Ensemble, Xinlisupreme, Songs Of Green Pheasant, Janek Schaefer - to name just a few), and it has always been really exciting to unexpectedly discover something great in this way. Just as when we started, this philosophy of keeping an ear to the ground and attempting to support good new creativity remains at the core of what we do. Read More


All demos received by FatCat are listened to and replied to. With the amount of demos we are currently receiving, we would prefer if you could send your best tracks rather than sending loads. If we like what we hear, then we will then get back to you and ask to hear more. Read More

YEAR 2011

Phone Home is helmed by the Vallarelli brothers, two New Yorkers Michael and John, and together they whip up a driving, keyboard-and-drum led maelstrom - especially on this track, 'Two is a Crew', which also has a star-gazing, almost ambient quality that suits their name's loving nod to ET.

Phone Home released their debut EP on their Bandcamp site in September 2010 " with a pay-what-you-want pricing scheme - leading various blogs to make comparisons to krautrock, The Album Leaf and even Brian Eno.

The duo have recently added guitar to the mix with the addition of Jeff Santoro.

They self released their third EP entitled WAYS in December of 2013 and plan on releasing a full length later this year.
