Jeff Rosenstock

Jeff Rosenstock was an anxious kid who grew into an anxious adult and has also made a bunch of music along the way with a bunch of bands, most notably Bomb the Music Industry! who apparently pioneered giving shit away for free on the internet - or at least got some of the credit for it.

Now he plays with his bi-coastal band of rad musicians, mixing punk heart with diverse instrumentation and occasional accuracy. The new record POST- was written in a snowy mountain dreamscape, recorded in a marathon session and finished moments before it was released on New Year's Day. Most of it (like 51%) was recorded live to tape, making the record a fiery distillation of Rosenstock's high energy live shows that push the boundaries of dynamics in rock music.

I hope. I don't know, that's what I was going for at least.

Hiding Behind Sound

Hiding Behind Sound is the psychologically accurate songwriting and recording alias of Sammi Niss, the well-known Hudson Valley drummer and founding member of the bands Battle Ave. and Frankie and His Fingers who has toured and recorded with Laura Stevenson, Matt Pond PA, and many others. Co-produced with Kevin McMahon (Titus Andronicus, Real Estate, Widowspeak), Hiding Behind Sound’s full length debut 'Words Escape' is an astonishingly mature, original, and epic studio work played almost entirely by Sammi.

The hurt cool of the songwriting and the unvarnished vocals suggest the influence of Jeff Tweedy and the Velvet Underground; the lavish guitar arrangements and tidal dynamics belong more to the tradition of Radiohead and post-rock. She just calls it “space twang.” 'Words Escape' will be released June 8th on SubFamily Records.
