Life changes. It’s the natural order of things. As you get older, friendships evolve, relationships fade, and surroundings change. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but trying to find your place and a sense of balance in all of life’s changes is something no one really prepares you for. The four members of Cleveland’s Signals Midwest can certainly attest to that. In eight years, they’ve borne witness to graduations and weddings, moves and funerals, new loves and heartbreak. But through it all, the one constant in the lives of vocalist/guitarist Max Stern, bassist Loren Shumaker, guitarist Jeff Russell, and drummer Steve Gibson has been this band.

At This Age, the quartet’s fourth full-length album, is both a testament to change and a reflection of a band at a pivotal moment in their lives. When you’re a young punk, the idea of devoting your life to music — writing songs and traveling the country with your best friends — doesn’t seem that hard: Write songs, get in the van, and go. “Will we make any money? Will our jobs still be there when we get back? How will we pay our rent next month? Who cares? As long as we’ve got each other and this band, that’s all that matters.” It’s an ethos that guides many bands in the beginning, but after a while, it’s not an easy attitude to maintain.

“I was asking myself questions like ‘How do I evolve as a person but retain what I love? How do I advance through the world but sustain the things that excited me when I was first discovering them?’” says Stern. These are the questions that guide the album, which marks some of the band’s most stark and mature songwriting to date. Produced by Into It. Over It.’s Evan Weiss and recorded at Atlas Studios in Chicago IL, At This Age might be the band’s most direct, stripped-down songwriting, but it’s an album that sounds huge. At times urgent and anthemic, and at others intimate and poignant, At This Age isn’t just an album, it’s a part of Signals Midwest; a cathartic release of angst and anxiety and vulnerability and maturation. It’s their way of communicating with the world and navigating the creeping fear that comes with change.

Eight years is a long time. For a band, it’s an eternity. What does the future hold for Signals Midwest? What does the future hold for any of us? Change is perhaps the most unpredictable and inevitable force in the universe: We can’t stop it. All we can do is to try to prepare for it. In the meantime, the best we can do is stop every once in a while to appreciate the people we have in our lives in that moment — it might not last. — Matt Cohen

Wild Pink - Song Premiere on Gold Flake Paint / New EP Available For Pre-Order / Upcoming Fall Tour Posted on August 25th, 2016

Wild Pink - Song Premiere on Gold Flake Paint / New EP Available For Pre-Order on Tiny Engines / Upcoming Fall Tour

4 Songs EP out 10/7/14 on Tiny Engines

• RIYL: Red House Painters, The American Analog Set, The Lonely Forest, Sebadoh

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tiny Engines recently welcomed NYC's Wild Pink to their roster. The label will issue a new EP, 4 Songs, from the band in October with their debut full-length to follow in early 2017. 4 Songs is now available for Pre-Order. The new releases will follow up Wild Pink's 2015 EP, Good Life.

You can stream the first single from Wild Pink's 4 Songs right now. "4th of July" is premiering exclusively on Gold Flake Paint.

The band has some upcoming shows in September and will head out for a Fall Tour in October in support of 4 Songs. Full dates listed below.

Wild Pink released their debut EP, Good Life, in the Summer of 2015. It was a brief but memorable introduction to the band's brand of introspective indie pop/rock. After numerous tours in support of Good Life the band hunkered down with Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., Speedy Ortiz, Kindling, Sweet John Bloom) to record new songs. What grew from those sessions was actually two new releases. First and foremost, the band's debut LP, slated for release in early 2017 on Tiny Engines. But also, 4 Songs, a supplemental EP out this October, that serves to bridge the gap between releases as the band grows more expansive in their sound and ambitious in their songwriting.

Wild Pink are one of those wonderfully rare bands that sounds instantly familiar upon first listen. Yet trying to draw parallels to their influences or similar bands proves to be incredibly difficult. That remains the same as Wild Pink continue to chart their own unique course. These new songs move at their own intentional pace while the band fleshes their arrangements out further. Yet the songs never suffer, only growing more dynamic and more propulsive with this increased nuance. Wild Pink doesn't lose the warm intimacy that made the band special, it's only enhanced to a greater degree here. These are deeply personal songs about freedom, or lack thereof, about growing up and leaving your youth behind yet still clinging to those sacred scars that we hold dear. Often exercising a stream of conscious lyrical style, Wild Pink has a remarkable way of transporting you to those moments in time where the smallest detail remains etched into your being. There is a sincerity that echoes throughout these songs that is intoxicating and speaks to what makes the band so special. Wild Pink choose the road less traveled and it has served them well.

Mannequin Pussy - Song Premiere on Noisey / New LP Available for Pre-Order Posted on August 18th, 2016

Mannequin Pussy - Song Premiere on Noisey / New LP Available for Pre-Order on Tiny Engines

Romantic LP/CD out 10/28/16 on Tiny Engines

• RIYL: White Lung, Bully, Screaming Females, Tacocat

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tiny Engines and Philadelphia, PA's Mannequin Pussy are excited to announce the release of the band's sophomore LP. The label will issue the album, Romantic, in October of 2016 on LP and CD. The album is now available for Pre-Order. Digital pre-order on Bandcamp.

You can stream the first single from Mannequin Pussy's Romantic right now. "Emotional High" is premiering exclusively on Noisey.

Mannequin Pussy have a few shows confirmed in September and the band will be playing The Fest as well. Other Fall tour announcements coming soon. Current dates listed below.

Romantic will follow up the band's debut full-length, GP. The album was originally released on cassette in 2013 but Tiny Engines gave it a full vinyl release in 2014. The 2nd pressing of GP is now available. Only a few first pressing copies remain. You can stream that album on Bandcamp or Spotify.

GP was named one of Rob Sheffield's Top 20 Albums of 2014 on Rolling Stone as well as #1 on his 10 Best Cassettes of 2014.

Originally begun as a duo between childhood friends, Marisa Dabice and Thanasi Paul, Mannequin Pussy expanded to a three-piece for their debut album, GP. Following a move to Philadelphia, the band has once again grown in numbers and strength. With the addition of Kaleen Reading on drums and Colins Regisford on bass, Mannequin Pussy are now a quartet for their sophomore full-length, Romantic. Once again a Mannequin Pussy full-length is a perfect example of "all killer, no filler" as Romantic clocks in at less than 20 minutes. And much like GP, Romantic shifts seamlessly back and forth between pop and punk rock. But, the band has refined their songwriting with Romantic. The pop hooks are bigger and sharper. The punk rock numbers are filled with even more fury. Romantic is the sound of a band hitting its stride.

Peaer LP/CD out 9/30/16 on Tiny Engines

• RIYL: Pedro The Lion, Pinback, Slint, Tigers Jaw

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tiny Engines recently welcomed Purchase, NY's Peaer to their roster. The label will issue the band's new Self-Titled full-length in September of 2016. The album is now available for Pre-Order on LP or CD.

You can stream the first single from Peaer's Self-Titled right now. "Pink Spit" is premiering exclusively on Stereogum.

Peaer has some upcoming shows. Current dates listed below. More to come soon.

Performing with a rotating lineup of musicians, Peaer is an object set in motion, staying in motion. Songwriter Peter Katz (formerly of Fugue, Poverty Hollow, Suns) has an understanding of dynamics, amplitude, and melody as they interact as physical bodies, pushing, pulling, peaking and falling. Consequently, Peaer produces songs about communication as a force on a linguistic and kinetic level communication between individuals, between yourself and other self, between your heart and your brain.

Peaer Self-Titled is Peaer’s second record, following the release of the home recorded debut the eyes sink into the skull in September of 2014. the eyes sink into the skull offered songs ranging from contemplative, melancholic slowcore to sparkling and intricate math rock. Peaer Self-Titled, however, recognizes and references these motifs, but pushes them further. Performed and recorded with the help of Max Kupperberg (Bruise, ex-Palehound) on drums and Michael Steck on bass guitar, Peaer offers higher energy, shorter form, stronger hooks, with emphasis on economy, cohesion and balance.

Yeesh - New Album Out Now / Summer Tour Posted on August 3rd, 2016

Yeesh - New Album Out Now on Tiny Engines / Summer Tour

Confirmation Bias LP/CD out now on Tiny Engines

• Full Album Stream on The AV Club + Song Premieres on Post Trash + Stereogum

• RIYL: Krill, Cloud Nothings, Les Savy Fav, Japandroids, Unwound

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tiny Engines welcomed Chicago, IL's Yeesh to their roster earlier this year. The label issued the band's sophomore LP, Confirmation Bias, on July 22nd. The LP/CD is Out Now.

Yeesh just finished up a run of shows in May and is set to head back out this weekend for a month's worth of shows. Record release show in Chicago tomorrow @ The Hideout. Full tour dates listed below. Facebook Events tour page here.

Confirmation Bias recently premiered in full on The AV Club and the band was just named one of 'Five Rising Chicago Artists You Need to Hear' by Consequence Of Sound.

The new LP will follow up the band's 2015 debut full-length, No Problem, on Already Dead Tapes & Records. You can stream that album, as well as the entire band discography, on Bandcamp.

Yeesh functions like a less-sardonic Shellac, using chest-rattling bass lines and prickly guitars in the same way, but with a twinge of optimism that makes all that tension rewarding. - The AV Club

The Chicago trio don’t dodge genres, but rather play around with them. They deliver lines with the heart of emo but the scratches of post-punk. On this year’s Confirmation Bias, the group’s sophomore LP, Yeesh explore territory that’s equal parts noisy and introspective. They’re reviving a post-hardcore sound that touches on Japandroids’ energy and Cloud Nothings’ anger... - Consequence Of Sound

Chicago three-piece Yeesh specialize in needling, fussy, and elaborately constructed bits of math-punk. - Stereogum

Tiny Engines welcomes Chicago three-piece Yeesh to the roster for the release of their sophomore LP, Confirmation Bias. While the band has been around since 2010, they have truly hit their stride with their first two full-lengths. On their sophomore LP the band rides the wave of momentum from their well-received debut full-length, No Problem, issued in the Spring of 2015 on Already Dead Tapes & Records. Continuing the trajectory from their debut LP, Confirmation Bias sees the band honing their sound even further. Yeesh pull from many different strains of the indie rock cannon to create something unique, yet familiar. From the sharp, twisted edges of post-punk to noisy grunge to melodic post-hardcore with strains of emo, Yeesh's songwriting moves swiftly and slyly, never standing still for too long. Yes, the band covers a hell of a lot of ground but they do it all naturally and with supreme confidence. With Confirmation Bias, Yeesh move beyond their influences and morph into a full rock behemoth that demands your attention.

Personal Space Joins Tiny Engines / Debut LP, Ecstatic Burbs, out Fall 2016 Posted on July 28th, 2016

Personal Space Joins Tiny Engines / Debut LP, Ecstatic Burbs, out Fall 2016

Ecstatic Burbs LP out 10/14/16 on Tiny Engines

• Debut EP, The Early Universe Was Entirely Opaque, name-your-price on Bandcamp

• RIYL: The Dismemberment Plan, Maps & Atlases, Dirty Projectors, Pinback

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tiny Engines is excited to welcome Brooklyn, NY's Personal Space to their roster. The label will issue the band's debut full-length, Ecstatic Burbs, in October of 2016. Artwork and tracklisting as well as LP/CD Pre-Order sign up can be found here.

Ecstatic Burbs will follow up the band's debut EP release from 2014, The Early Universe Was Entirely Opaque. The EP is available for name-your-price download on Bandcamp.

Personal Space released their debut EP, The Early Universe Was Entirely Opaque, in the Spring of 2014. It was a promising glimpse into a band ripe with talent and ideas. But Personal Space would stay relatively quiet in the months to follow as the lineup shifted and a more focused version of the band would begin to take shape. Fast forward to the beginning of 2016, and Personal Space emerged from the studio with a complete, realized vision on their debut full-length. The LP, entitled Ecstatic Burbs, is amazingly accomplished for a debut album. With a mixture of styles and influences, Ecstatic Burbs is polished progressive pop for the indie rock crowd perhaps not seen since the likes of the great The Dismemberment Plan. And much like that band, Personal Space delves into heavy topics with charming abandon. Ecstatic Burbs surveys the saccharine, surreal landscape of early-aughts suburban coming of age, and all the weird contradictions thereof: the impossibility of violence in a world saturated with it; maladaptive responses to burgeoning male identity and sexuality, forged via internet world; over-determined life paths that turn out to have nothing to do with actual desires or reality. Yet, Personal Space infuses all of this with remarkable depth and humor. From the innocence of childhood to the confusion of adolescence and into the chaos of adulthood, the band hopes to find some sanity beyond it all. Ecstatic Burbs is quite simply, a rousing introduction to the masses for Personal Space.

Life changes. It’s the natural order of things. As you get older, friendships evolve, relationships fade, and surroundings change. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but trying to find your place and a sense of balance in all of life’s changes is something no one really prepares you for. The four members of Cleveland’s Signals Midwest can certainly attest to that. In eight years, they’ve borne witness to graduations and weddings, moves and funerals, new loves and heartbreak. But through it all, the one constant in the lives of vocalist/guitarist Max Stern, bassist Loren Shumaker, guitarist Jeff Russell, and drummer Steve Gibson has been this band.

At This Age, the quartet’s fourth full-length album, is both a testament to change and a reflection of a band at a pivotal moment in their lives. When you’re a young punk, the idea of devoting your life to music — writing songs and traveling the country with your best friends — doesn’t seem that hard: Write songs, get in the van, and go. “Will we make any money? Will our jobs still be there when we get back? How will we pay our rent next month? Who cares? As long as we’ve got each other and this band, that’s all that matters.” It’s an ethos that guides many bands in the beginning, but after a while, it’s not an easy attitude to maintain.

“I was asking myself questions like ‘How do I evolve as a person but retain what I love? How do I advance through the world but sustain the things that excited me when I was first discovering them?’” says Stern. These are the questions that guide the album, which marks some of the band’s most stark and mature songwriting to date. Produced by Into It. Over It.’s Evan Weiss and recorded at Atlas Studios in Chicago IL, At This Age might be the band’s most direct, stripped-down songwriting, but it’s an album that sounds huge. At times urgent and anthemic, and at others intimate and poignant, At This Age isn’t just an album, it’s a part of Signals Midwest; a cathartic release of angst and anxiety and vulnerability and maturation. It’s their way of communicating with the world and navigating the creeping fear that comes with change.

Eight years is a long time. For a band, it’s an eternity. What does the future hold for Signals Midwest? What does the future hold for any of us? Change is perhaps the most unpredictable and inevitable force in the universe: We can’t stop it. All we can do is to try to prepare for it. In the meantime, the best we can do is stop every once in a while to appreciate the people we have in our lives in that moment — it might not last. — Matt Cohen

Mannequin Pussy - New LP Out Fall 2016 on Tiny Engines / On Tour Now with Stove Posted on July 25th, 2016

Mannequin Pussy - Announces Sophomore LP, Romantic, out Fall 2016 on Tiny Engines

Romantic LP/CD out 10/28/16 on Tiny Engines

• Artwork & Tracklisting Released

• RIYL: White Lung, Bully, Ex Hex

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tiny Engines and Philadelphia, PA's Mannequin Pussy are excited to announce the upcoming release of the band's sophomore LP. The label will issue the album, Romantic, in October of 2016 on LP and CD. You can sign up for pre-order notification here. Mannequin Pussy are on tour right now with Stove! Tour poster here. Remaining dates listed below.

Romantic will follow up the band's debut full-length, GP. The album was originally released on cassette in 2013 but Tiny Engines gave it a full vinyl release in 2014. The 2nd pressing of GP is now available. Only a few first pressing copies remain. You can stream that album on Bandcamp or Spotify.

Originally begun as a duo between childhood friends, Marisa Dabice and Thanasi Paul, Mannequin Pussy expanded to a three-piece for their debut album, GP. Following a move to Philadelphia, the band has once again grown in numbers and strength. With the addition of Kaleen Reading on drums and Colins Regisford on bass, Mannequin Pussy are now a quartet for their sophomore full-length, Romantic. Once again a Mannequin Pussy full-length is a perfect example of "all killer, no filler" as Romantic clocks in at less than 20 minutes. And much like GP, Romantic shifts seamlessly back and forth between pop and punk rock. But, the band has refined their songwriting with Romantic. The pop hooks are bigger and sharper. The punk rock numbers are filled with even more fury. Romantic is the sound of a band hitting its stride.

See Through Dresses - Announce Summer Tour / New Record Coming in 2017 Posted on July 18th, 2016

See Through Dresses - Announce Summer Tour

End Of Days 12" out now on Tiny Engines
• RIYL: The Cure, Sonic Youth, Creepoid, Pity Sex

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tiny Engines welcomed Omaha, NE's See Through Dresses to the label roster in 2015 and released End Of Days, a six song 12," in the Fall. Vinyl is in stock in the TE Store. Digital available on Bandcamp, iTunes and Spotify.

The band are once again heading back out on the road for Summer tour dates following up their first West Coast Tour in the Spring. The band toured with Cursive, Beach Slang and Cymbals Eat Guitars in 2015. All upcoming shows listed below.

See Through Dresses began recording sessions for their sophomore full-length in January and continue that process. The record is now scheduled for a Spring 2017 release on Tiny Engines.

You can hear See Through Dresses' End Of Days in full on Impose. "Drag Scene" previously premiered onStereogum and "Haircut" previously premiered on Noisey, along with a band interview.

Omaha’s See Through Dresses are a blur of nauseous, claustrophobic energy. Their blown-out, catchy indie rock nods to the recent past, the college rock of the ’80s and ’90s, but coils around the anxieties of the present. Pop haze for dreaming in the dark. - Impose

Principal songwriters Mathew Carroll and Sara Bertuldo, along with drummer Nate Van Fleet and bassist Alex Kirts, have crafted a catalogue of songs indebted to classic post-punk and new wave artists of the 80's, but their sonic footprint more closely resembles the textural treatments of 90's dream-pop and shoegaze. The arrangements often build as though to erupt, only to implode. There are moments when Bertuldo and Carroll sound noxious and distant, their voices doused in reverb, their guitars droning and pulsing. When the clouds look dark, See Through Dresses offer flashes of pure pop sunshine to punctuate those moments of isolation and distance.

Chicago three-piece Yeesh specialize in needling, fussy, and elaborately constructed bits of math-punk. - Stereogum

Tiny Engines welcomes Chicago three-piece Yeesh to the roster for the release of their sophomore LP, Confirmation Bias. While the band has been around since 2010, they have truly hit their stride with their first two full-lengths. On their sophomore LP the band rides the wave of momentum from their well-received debut full-length, No Problem, issued in the Spring of 2015 on Already Dead Tapes & Records. Continuing the trajectory from their debut LP, Confirmation Bias sees the band honing their sound even further. Yeesh pull from many different strains of the indie rock cannon to create something unique, yet familiar. From the sharp, twisted edges of post-punk to noisy grunge to melodic post-hardcore with strains of emo, Yeesh's songwriting moves swiftly and slyly, never standing still for too long. Yes, the band covers a hell of a lot of ground but they do it all naturally and with supreme confidence. With Confirmation Bias, Yeesh move beyond their influences and morph into a full rock behemoth that demands your attention.
