Stuff We Sell

I first heard Des Ark play "FTW Ya'll!!!" 2 years before this record came out. That main riff was stuck in my head for over 2 years. If That doesn't explain the power of this record, I don't know what does...

I haven't gotten sucked in to an artist in a while, but I can't stop listening to Des Ark. Deeply layered, heart wrenching, and bad ass! Love.

this album has become a late night classic for me .

Lovitt Records LOV64 Des Ark Don't Rock the Boat, Sink the Fucker

During the last decade, Aimée Argote has had more bands called Des Ark than she has albums under that name. She's howled and jerked in sweaty houses and rock clubs, backed by a drummer, another drummer, yet another drummer and a second guitarist, and a small symphony. She's brought big crowds to a whisper with nothing but her voice and a banjo or a tiny guitar that kept slipping out of tune. But, a stack of radio sessions aside, Des Ark only has one LP, 2005's Loose Lips Sink Ships, and a collaborative split with Ben Davis, 2007's Battle of the Beards, to call its own.

Don't Rock the Boat, Sink the Fucker—the band's brilliant second LP—makes up for the time lag and the lost members.
