Brick + Mortar

"There's an undeniable energy that charges through New Jersey-based duo Brick+Mortar, and this is especially obvious in the dark and seductive "Move to the Ocean," which I've had on repeat all week. Lead singer Brandon Asraf's voice has a ferocious punch to it and effortlessly moves from solemn croon to savage cry without losing an ounce of passion along the way. Tensions build and tribal beats boom under biting lyrics. These guys will hit you like a delightful ton of bricks (pun intended)." - Nylon Magazine (Caitlin Smith)

"This indie rock duo delivers in sound what their name indicates: solid, earthy music. Armed with only a bass, a drum kit and a handful of samples, front-man Brandon Asraf and drummer John Tacon commanded the stage at Arlene's Grocery Tuesday night with a high-energy performance and audience engagement." - Blast Magazine (CMJ 2011 Highlights)

"Brick + Mortar's new track "Heatstroke" is swiftly snaking its way up my best songs of the year list." - ListenBeforeYouBuy.net

"Heatstroke – the acoustic version, makes me pretty fucking happy." - Lucy vs. The Globe

"Instant irresistible, pump you up nature that will bring you back for more and more. Its exciting, and leaves me frothing at the mouth." - MusicSavage.com

"Pretty radical" - Rhythm Livin USA

"Normally it's the music that hits me first, but for this one it was really about the lyrics and the sound of singer Brandon Asraf's voice. Just has a very raw and honest sound to it, lyrics included. Kind of reminds me of Isaac Brock from Modest Mouse (a little less whiny though)." - WhatsProtocol.com

Coax Rhino

Land A'Hoy! Coax Rhino is a four piece band that hails from the coastal town of Guilford, Ct. Though landlubbers would call them an Indie Rock band, genre doesn't mean a thing to the unforgiving Poseidon, so they shy away from such classifications. These seafaring minstrels play drums with oars, and string their guitars with seaweed (and flo$$). They consistently top the billboard charts of the VHF Coast Guard oceanic emergency radio. Called "fun, catchy, irreverent," with an, "in-your-face hip-hoppish attitude at times," by The Shoreline Times Coax Rhino provides for an up-beat Perfect Stormish ride... Shotty George Clooney!
