"..Williamsburg, Brooklyn’s Dead Stars, play melodic alt-rock and shoegaze straight from the early-‘90s—think Teenage Fanclub, Pavement, Sonic Youth and Dinosaur, Jr. Which means lots of hefty, hummable melodies and even more fuzz tones.." - FUSE.TV
"..glorious, guitar-driven slacker-rock.." - MTV HIVE
"..Epic swathes of crumpled guitar brilliance.." - MOJOPHENIA
"...Dead Stars have some immediately familiar sounds even on the first listen—Pixies' loud-soft-loud trademark, Built to Spill, Pavement and Hum when they decide to unleash the wall of guitars. Anyone claiming to be a fan of those bands should get this album today..."
"You can learn a lot about the Hairs through main-man(e) Kevin Alvir’s chosen song titles: There’s the gender-bent 'Jack Becomes A Policewoman,' a new single with a name posing the same sort of pithy illustrative twist as the previously posted 'Balding College Girls.' Titles to catch you off guard, quick twisters to pair with the fun, blunt quirk of a track (title) like 'Duh x 12!' So that’s the Hairs, then, in a name or three: clever and twisty in melody and buried guitar lines, simple and immediate in fuzz, and pulse, and its ostensibly slapdash home-recorded vibe."-Stereogum
The Teen Age
Formed in Brooklyn during the Winter of 2012, The Teen Age plays a mix of 70's punk and indie garage. Their song "Evil" was recorded at the new Silent Barn in Bushwick, BK and was produced by members of the group Ava Luna. Humming with youthful defiance and grounded in psych, the track serves as an exciting precursor to a debut EP currently in the works.
Friends since childhood, Patrick Phillips (vocals/guitar) and Tyson Moore (lead guitar) found each other again in a Bushwick basement where they began writing much of what would become Honduras' early material. Inspired by late 70’s punk, but mixing in aspects of garage and indie that followed, Honduras played Brooklyn’s DIY venue scene tirelessly and garnered a reputation for amazing live performances, with comparisons to bands like Sex Pistols and Buzzcocks. After bringing in Josh Wehle to play drums they added a new bass player in Paul Lizarraga (the Denzels) to round out the band’s signature polished edge. Their more recent writing has included elements of krautrock and psych to their already energetic tracks for an intellectually developed and interesting sound. While picking up additional attention from serious tastemakers like Rolling Stone, NME, Noisey, Impose, and Nylon along the way, the group has shared stages like Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg with notable acts like Blur, Metz, Fidlar, Twin Peaks, Drowners and the Kaiser Chiefs. The first single from their upcoming debut LP, Paralyzed, is currently in regular rotation on Sirius Radio XMU and the band was just featured in NME's On The Radar section. On stage the formula continues, where four good friends exhibit a savvy devil-may-care tightness. Their engaging stage presence is both apropos to their influences and forever exciting to witness in a young and surging project. Their upcoming debut LP is called Rituals, and will be released in Early 2016.
