Beloved Merge records college rockers - the 90s never died.
"…impeccable pop with a touch of human frailty." - NY Times
Nick Lowe meets the Walkmen; together they bridge the generation gap over mutual agreement of the Velvet Underground’s lasting legacy.
"The melodies are non-stop, the vibe laid-back but somehow menacing and sunny at the same time, and the harmonies lift the whole thing to a new level. " - The L Magazine
A surfy-garage pop trio raised in the 90s doing guitar-based rock as the Stones and The Kinks imagined.
"Crazy Pills does jangle-happy garage-pop with heavy girl-group overtones." - Time Out NY
This is their final appearance together, we are sad to say.
Psychedelic shoegazer soul featuring members of NAAM, Gunfight!, Miniboone, Clouder.
"Their music enjoys the varnish of a swirling blaze of electric guitar and in this respect recalls the approach taken this year by another band, Dinosaur Jr., in which the guitar takes front and center stage." - Tiny Mixtapes
Lo-fi indie rock from Brooklyn.
"…a lo-fi sounding take to the world of upbeat indie music." - Indie Bands Blog
Let’s Be Loveless
Melodic indie pop band with boy/girl vocals.
"The band is as fun as they are emotional, as intimate as they are arena rock. This is shoegaze for people who can’t stand still." - Deli Magazine NYC
