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.
The Obsessives
Nick Bairatchnyi and Jackson Mansfield built The Obsessives at fifteen, out of a childhood friendship and a misplaced love for blues-rock. "We wanted to start a band with a "The" because bands like that three years ago were cool, like The Black Keys and The White Stripes," Bairatchnyi remembers while laughing at his ninth-grade naivety. Three years later, after a freshly-inked deal with upstart record label Near Mint and a revitalized mission to be a charged, affected two-piece emo outfit, The Obsessives have become fixated on a new form. Their debut record, "Heck No, Nancy," chronicles a series of revelations which center around a musical mentality that volleys between the expressive texture of Everyone Everywhere and the bouncy indie of bands like Dowsing and Runaway Brother. "This album lyrically and musically reflects the year I had before graduating high school." Bairatchnyi remembers. "We almost didn't make it to this record. We were going to record a fourth EP and do other things. Now that we did, we're just looking for what's next."
