Tinmouth
Tinmouth
Somewhere beyond Missed Connections and Casual Encounters, unreformed romantics still pine for an origin myth. A chord shimmers, a snare swaggers, a bass line snakes, and here's one more revelation.

tinmouth sounds familiar because they never shy from genre-bending weirdo worship — (should a Gary Glitter beat really coexist with a weary Neil Young-ish lament? That's for you to decide; the band has clearly made up their minds).

Neither abandoning nor wallowing in the past, Timothy, Aaron and Alyssa have emerged from whatever murky estuaries to construct a sound both sophisticated and playful. While the melodies will stick in your brain, the playing is all heart.

Live, tinmouth strips the muscle from the bone — loose-limbed, lean and limber. So while they may be waiting on "one more revelation," others are catching on that it's already here.
Secret Nudist Friends
Secret Nudist Friends
Secret Nudist Friends is a psych/garage power trio out of Philadelphia with strong ties to the Brooklyn scene. Their sound is the love child of 60s rock and the modern garage revival, while constantly being inspired by the sounds coming out of Philly and Brooklyn.
Journalism
While there is irony in a band calling themselves Journalism, don't confuse it with today's increasingly popular tongue-in-cheek cynicism. With their debut LP Faces (released March 4 on Dead Stare Records) Journalism frontman (and former journalism major) Kegan Zema investigates the very nature of being in a band.

The Brooklyn quartet's long awaited debut is an exciting record that blends boisterous indie rock, fuzzy krautrock, reverberating post-punk, and big hook-fueled pop songs to create anxious and contemplative art-pop that shines in the darkness.

Lush yet gritty, the tracks feature a pounding urgency that underscores the anxiety of figuring out just what the hell you're supposed to be doing with your mid-20's. "You're close enough but you can't taste it / 'Cause you're so bored from all the waiting," sings Zema at the close of the album.
