Written during a flurry of creativity immediately following the completion of their last LP, PSYCHIC TEENS return with HEX: a five song EP that showcases their unique blend of post-punk, goth, shoegaze, and noise rock. With HEX, PSYCHIC TEENS set to capture the sensory overload of their live show -- colossal guitars and ear-piercing volume --and combine it with the gloomy mood they have brought on their previous three LPs.
After a nearly 10 year hiatus, the boys from Philadelphia post punk outfit Aim of Conrad are back with an ice cream cone in one hand and a cigarette in the other. Known for their raucous live shows, Tiny Vices craft a sound that isn't afraid to be as dance-able as it is driving, controlled as it is chaotic, and dreamy as it is heavy. Equal parts Queens of the Stone Age, Hot Snakes, Metz, and The Jesus Lizard, the boys always find a way to keep the hips shaking and the riffs narstie.
On their debut EP "Honey Up", the boys worked with engineer Matt Poiner at Miner Street Recordings to craft 5 songs they describe as "midnight music". We have no idea what that means, but "Honey Up" sure brings the goods. The drums are huge, the guitars snarl, and with every verse he howls, singer Matt Smyth creates a world slightly out of focus and super fun.
"Fuzzed out shoegazers finding balance between catchy dream-pop hooks and noisy psych rock. Their new EP, Moon Violet, was mixed and recorded by John Ceparano of The Stargazer Lilies, and showcases a mix of their influences which include The Smashing Pumpkins, Slowdive, and Broadcast."
