"BEAUTIFUL THINGS" marks a major creative milestone for Green, best known
as the lead singer for the Philadelphia-based progressive punk act Circa Survive. Co-
produced by Green and Jason Cupp, "BEAUTIFUL THINGS" was recorded at The Big House
in the sleepy beach town of Avalon, New Jersey, with backing – and additional production
– from Green's fellow Philadelphians, Good Old War. In addition, the album sees guest
appearances from such like-minded artists as Ida Maria, Lights, Maps & Atlases guitarist
Dave Davison, Claire Wadsworth, Green's Circa Survive comrades Brendan Ekstrom and
Colin Frangicetto, and a couple other surprises TBA.
"BEAUTIFUL THINGS" follows Green's extraordinary solo debut album, "AVALON,"
which received critical accolades upon its 2008 release. Among the highlights was a
cover feature in Alternative Press, with "AVALON" earning a four-out-of-five starred rave
lead review. "Focused and deliberate," the review stated, "It takes a certain kind of man
to be as emotionally strong and mentally grounded as he is musically gifted; Anthony
Green is definitely that man." Furthermore, SPIN declared "AVALON" to be "a set of
idiosyncratic, deeply personal ballads." For further news and information, please visit

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
