Joyce Manor
Joyce Manor
Acclaimed Californian band Joyce Manor - Barry Johnson (vocals and guitar), Chase Knobbe (guitar), Jeff Enzor (drums), and Matt Ebert (bass) - have announced the release of their anticipated new album entitled Cody which arrives in stores this October 7th, care of Epitaph. It is the follow-up to the band’s 2014’s critically-lauded record Never Hungover Again.

While the band’s Epitaph debut Never Hungover Again was recorded in a mere ten days, Cody is the result of two months in the studio with renowned producer Rob Schnapf, credited on classics by Elliot Smith, Guided By Voices, Saves The Day and Rancid among others. As the band’s guitarist and singer Barry Johnson explains, “It was the first time we really used the studio to our advantage. I felt like I could get a better grasp on what we could do. We always recorded like a punk band—go in and lay ‘em down! Just get good takes! And this time we tried a lot more.” The result is a record that dares to be humble, intimate and unapologetically human. Cody is the album where the band moves past simple pop and punk. It’s a moment for clarity and creative renewal. Without losing any of the emotional power fans love, the band is defiantly looking towards the future.
The Exquisites
Soulful punk music from Seattle, WA. The Exquisites' album is both intense and introspective at the same time, with driving drums and walls of guitars backing Jason Clackley's powerful croon.
Dogs On Acid
Dogs On Acid
A band just like any other band. Four dudes, you've seen 'em around in flannel and jeans, get their drink tickets, tune their strings one at a time just like the last guy but, play music like dogs on acid.
The Spirit Of The Beehive
The Spirit Of The Beehive
Tiny Engines is excited to welcome Philadelphia, PA's The Spirit of the Beehive to their roster. The label will issue the band's sophomore LP, pleasure suck, in March 2017. The album will follow up the band's 2015 EP, YOU ARE ARRIVED (but you've been cheated).

With their third release, pleasure suck, Philadelphia, PA's The Spirit of the Beehive continue to slowly rot your brain with sad, beautiful pop songs and sweet melodies buried under noisy, psychedelic rock. Traversing the ghostly back-roads of indie rock with hypnotizing results, there's a certain air of mysteriousness that surrounds the band and their music. Detached yet full engaged, The Spirit of the Beehive seem to float back and forth between fantasy and reality. Vocals are often buried and distorted. Songs evolve slowly and dissipate quickly, yet linger in the air long after they are gone. Shifting between ambiance and lo-fi pop, with fits of noise in between, the band's attention to detail and mood are impressive. What emerges from the darkness is a band that seems impossible to explain or categorize, yet fully engrossing. Experimental and ambitious without sacrificing melody, The Spirit of the Beehive are that rare band that may always be difficult to describe but never fail to make a lasting impression, even if you aren't quite sure what the hell you just witnessed.
