The Joiner Inners

Originally formed in 1996, The Joiner Inners, a combination of friendship, musical dexterity and volume, celebrate their best traits on “The Time is Now” (2007), a glorious journey through the band's best moments, extolling the virtues of the music that influenced them the most (Guided by Voices, the Who,
the Replacements, and Superchunk). Boiled and basted in an
over-heated basement for over a decade, the band's tightness and comraderies is apparent in would-be singles “Hidden Sector”,
“Song of Many Lyrics” and “Air Guitar and Dashboard Drums”, all of which evoke the best of musicians and friends, plodding angrily towards middle age and restricted circumstances. “The Time is Now” is, interestingly enough, timeless and anyone who wants to enjoy well-crafted music burnt at the ends with musical abandon simply needs to listen... now.

In 2008, now a trio, the band continued writing what would become their next album, “All Star Traction” (2012) much in the same pop rock style of “The Time Is Now”. The album features some more gems such as, “Separate Arts”, “Open Things”, and “Dynamite Horse”. Continuing on, the writing continued and in the winter of 2013, the bands final album, “House of Sound” (2013) was released. Initially an EP, the extended version includes some live recordings from that period as well. The Joiner Inners played their final show in July of 2013.

Acoustic folk duo from New Haven, Connecticut.

Ben Erickson

Ben has been making music with a bunch of different projects for about the last 15 years. Started out in the garage in Connecticut playing punk rock and Nirvana, then branched out into noise rock, metal, electro-sleaze, and other extreme sounds. Ben has been all around the East Coast and beyond with my many bands. Through it all he's always loved writing a simple song on the acoustic with a good chorus and evocative lyrics. Over the years he's amassed a pretty broad catalog of "folk" tunes with elements of country, blues, punk, goth, pop, and whatever else has piqued his interest at the time. Enjoy 🙂

Monster Eats Pilot

Monster Eats Pilot is a three piece indie rock/garage/grunge group from New Haven CT that eschews arbitrary restrictions and doesn't need "cred"
