Spill
Lancaster PA’s SPILL are no strangers to the polarizing nature of both success and failure. A theme that is the driving force of their debut full length on No Sleep Records titled “Top Ten”. Diving into the ups and downs of life, juggling being in a band, working a shitty day job, and trying to deal with relationships throughout all of it. Recorded at The Headroom (Joyce Manor, Hop Along) with Kyle Pulley (Thin Lips) and featuring a guest appearance by Chris Diehm (1994! Thin Lips, Year of Glad). Top Ten is an instant beer and blood-soaked Rickenbacker rock’n’roll signaling. The musical equivalent of a movie scene where the protagonist wakes up in their clothes , lights a cigarette, chugs a beer, and walks outside to face the terror of everyday life with a sadistic smile and understanding of the bullshit ahead of him. SPILL makes you feel like it’s ok your life is fucked sometimes, cause hey, isn’t everyones? Pessimistic Optimism isn’t an Oxymoron, it’s a band called SPILL.
Thin Lips
Thin Lips
Thin Lips is the brain heart baby of Chrissy Tashjian, Kyle Pulley, Christopher Diehm and Mikey Tashjian. Their debut EP Divorce Year was released in 2015, giving us a sweet blend of indie rock guitar riffs and punk rock energy. This EP was recently pressed to 7" vinyl via Lame-O Records. With their new album Riff Hard, named after the tattoos on Chrissy's knuckles, Thin Lips bring their guitar shredding, high energy indie rock to a whole new level.
Straw Hats
Straw Hats
From the sticks to the city, STRAW HATS rummaged the streets of Philadelphia finding one complete drum set, bass rig (with bass), and guitar rig (with guitar). Soon after, these three young vigilantes turned in their lives of nighttime crime fighting for music and more chances of social interactions/brighter future filled with melody and attitude.
Seasonal
Visceral and nostalgic, seasonal layers atmospheric and glimmering melodies with passionate lyrics reminiscent of times past. The Lancaster, Pa based band released its debut EP "The World We Chose to See" in May 2015.
Kississippi (acoustic)
In August of 2014, Zoë Allaire Reynolds put out a 5-song EP under the moniker Kississippi, and later that month, Colin James Kupson moved to Philadelphia to attend The University of the Arts (for Music Technology). The two began collaborating on music together after meeting on Tinder(!) They honed their output, and went in to the Drexel studios in January 2015 with Jake Ewald. The record, named after a friend whom scrawled “we have no future, we’re all doomed” across a class picture of Zoë and themselves, is a 6-song exploration into what the duo were capable of. What comes of the creative foray is a magnetic, multi-faceted output that sees the marriage of the two’s musical backgrounds; featuring Beach House-like synth harmonies, syncopated beat manipulation, and Drop C basslines. After playing many months of shows as a 2-piece, they decided to approach friends to help flesh the performances out, creating a weighted and significant live show, which exemplarily demonstrate the duo’s goal to create “amp worshipping pop/popviolence,” or an amalgamation of heavy energy and theatrics with pop hooks and dreamy haze.
