Thin Lips
Thin Lips
Thin Lips is the brain heart baby of Chrissy Tashjian, Kyle Pulley, Christopher Diehm and Mikey Tashjian. Their debut EP Divorce Year was released in 2015, giving us a sweet blend of indie rock guitar riffs and punk rock energy. This EP was recently pressed to 7" vinyl via Lame-O Records. With their new album Riff Hard, named after the tattoos on Chrissy's knuckles, Thin Lips bring their guitar shredding, high energy indie rock to a whole new level.

Thin Lips will be on tour with Modern Baseball and Joyce Manor starting this May. The band has toured with everyone from Hop Along to Cayetana to The Front Bottoms.
The Superweaks
The Superweaks
After the release of their 2014 debut EP The World Is A Terrible Place And I Hate Myself And Want To Die, The Superweaks went to work on creating the best rock and roll record of the decade. Bad Year, the first full length record from The Superweaks, is filled with more guitars than all the songs you've heard on the radio in the last ten years combined. Slowly making their way towards superstardom, The Superweaks have taken everything you love about Weezer, Superchunk and Cheap Trick and squeezed them together in eleven tracks of purified rock.

The Superweaks keep the same tongue in cheek tomfoolery that earned them their cult following with The World Is A Terrible Place (see Bad Year tracks 2, 9 & 11), and just like on that EP, Bad Year's cheeky titling is fully backed up by well-crafted, beautifully recorded, brilliantly catchy songs. The songwriting duo of Evan Bernard and Chris Baglivo may be silly, but they are no joke. Alternating between shredding rockers and pop-y sing-alongs, The Superweaks have put their back into delivering you your new favorite record.
The Obsessives
The Obsessives
Nick Bairatchnyi and Jackson Mansfield built The Obsessives at fifteen, out of a childhood friendship and a misplaced love for blues-rock. "We wanted to start a band with a "The" because bands like that three years ago were cool, like The Black Keys and The White Stripes," Bairatchnyi remembers while laughing at his ninth-grade naivety. Three years later, after a freshly-inked deal with upstart record label Near Mint and a revitalized mission to be a charged, affected two-piece emo outfit, The Obsessives have become fixated on a new form. Their debut record, "Heck No, Nancy," chronicles a series of revelations which center around a musical mentality that volleys between the expressive texture of Everyone Everywhere and the bouncy indie of bands like Dowsing and Runaway Brother. "This album lyrically and musically reflects the year I had before graduating high school." Bairatchnyi remembers. "We almost didn't make it to this record. We were going to record a fourth EP and do other things. Now that we did, we're just looking for what's next."
