Personal Space - Full Album Stream on Brooklyn Vegan / Debut LP Available For Pre-Order on Tiny Engines

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

• Song Premiere on Gold Flake Paint + Stereogum

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

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


Tiny Engines recently welcomed Brooklyn, NY's Personal Space to their roster. The label will officially release the band's debut full-length, Ecstatic Burbs, this week. The vinyl is available for Order. Digital on iTunes and Bandcamp. The band has a few local shows upcoming, check the dates below.

You can stream Ecstatic Burbs in full right now exclusively on Brooklyn Vegan.

"Ghost World" previously premiered on Gold Flake Paint and "Offering" on Stereogum. Both tracks can now be streamed on Spotify.

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.

Tiny Engines is honored to welcome Brooklyn, NY's Thelma to their growing roster. The label will issue the debut full-length from Thelma in early 2017. New music coming soon!

Thelma is heading out on tour with gobbinjr in November. Dates listed below. Facebook Events page here. Check the tour flyer here.

In 2012 Natasha Jacobs began writing songs, and committed a promise to herself to get over a lifelong fear of performing. In 2014 while studying composition at SUNY Purchase, she began experimenting with electronic processing and started writing songs beyond a solo acoustic framework. Six months after Thelma's solo debut in 2015, Daniel Siles, Maciej Lewandowski, and Juan Pablo Siles joined. With a full band now behind Jacobs, the music began to stretch into a powerful new direction. Led by hauntingly beautiful vocals and rich, lyrical imagery, Thelma resides in those places that remain undefined. Possessing otherworldly qualities, Thelma's songs are full of magic and mystery, with wistful melodies floating by in a dream-like state. The lyrics are striking in their description and tone, adding even more depth to the band's ambitious songs. A brilliant synergy of folk songwriting, electronic experimentation and dramatic arrangements, Thelma is a band hard to define but impossible to dismiss.

Haybaby - Announce Fall US Tour / Blood Harvest EP Out Now Posted on October 11th, 2016

Haybaby - Announce Fall US Tour / New EP Out Now on Tiny Engines

Blood Harvest EP out now on Tiny Engines

• Premieres on Spin + Stereogum + The Fader

• Named One of Stereogum’s 50 Best New Bands Of 2015

• RIYL: Blonde Redhead, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Breeders

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


Tiny Engines released the debut full-length, Sleepy Kids, from Brooklyn NY's Haybaby in October of 2015. Wasting no time, the band returned this past Spring with a new five song EP called Blood Harvest. The EP is Out Now on Cassette and Digital on Bandcamp and Apple Music.

The band is heading out on a US tour starting tomorrow. Check the dates below. Tour flyer here.

Blood Harvest premiered in full on Spin and can now be streamed on Spotify. "Pig" previously premiered on Stereogum and "Joke/Rope" on The Fader.

Sleepy Kids LPs are Available Now! Digital available on iTunes, Bandcamp and Spotify.

The band was named as one of Sterogum's 50 Best New Bands Of 2015. Haybaby was also featured as a Stereogum 'Band To Watch' with the debut single, "Her," streaming along with a band interview.

Brooklyn band Haybaby released their debut full-length, Sleepy Kids, on Tiny Engines in the Fall of 2015. The band returns in the Spring of 2016, wasting no time following up their acclaimed debut with a brand new EP. Blood Harvest starts where Sleepy Kids left off, showcasing a band sharpening the edges of their own unique sound.

Leslie Hong's vocal delivery, be it a whisper or a scream, is as intoxicating as ever on Blood Harvest. Hong cleverly spins her stories as her guitar weaves in and out while the grooving, wiry bass playing of Sam Yield and the propulsive drumming of Jeremy Duvall keep the songs magically churning. Every piece serves a deliberate purpose and gives new meaning to the term, power trio. Yet, Haybaby never overpower, they engage and engross the listener instead. Sure, the music can be uncompromising and harsh at times but it's the subtleties of the band that captivate and pack the biggest emotional gut punches.

"Joke/Rope" rocks above an abyss between laughter and total misery. There's no surface level here; we're deep in the depths of gripping anguish, and Haybaby rock hard enough to carry it. - The Fader

Blood Harvest sees the band exploring and pushing their sound to rawer, often noisier extremes while still maintaining their sly, melodic songwriting prowess. The five songs here perfectly encapsulate the captivating range and depth of the band. If Blood Harvest proves anything, it is that the beautiful mystery of Haybaby has yet to fully unravel.

Haybaby are everything you love about grunge, punk, art rock, indie rock and riot grrrl rolled into one adorable three piece band. - Noisey

That feeling of festering anger threads through Sleepy Kids, and the result is a prickly, uncompromising record that captures both the energy of their weathered live show and forges a new, exciting path. - Stereogum’s 50 Best New Bands Of 2015

Brooklyn sludge punk trio Haybaby pack a punch of bombastic, lively melodies that are sweet enough to rot out all of your teeth. Haybaby hold the knack for crafting distorted, fuzzy guitar riffs with heartfelt and sincere songwriting. - Impose

This is an utterly brilliant record. - Collective

Sleepy Kids is a sludge-grunge see saw, full of dynamic soft and loud battles, a hazy puff of ‘90s art-punk. - New Noise

Mannequin Pussy - Band To Watch on Stereogum - Song Premiere + Interview / New LP Available for Pre-Order / Fall Tour Announced Posted on October 6th, 2016

Mannequin Pussy - Band To Watch on Stereogum - Song Premiere + Interview / New LP Available for Pre-Order on Tiny Engines / Fall Tour Announced

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

• Song Premieres on NPR + Noisey

• 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. All other digital outlets here.

Mannequin Pussy will be playing The Fest upcoming and touring the US in November including dates with The Spirit Of The Beehive. Dates listed below. Tour poster here.

Mannequin Pussy is named a Stereogum 'Band To Watch' and you can read an interview with the band as well as stream a new track from Romantic right now. "Denial" is premiering exclusively on Stereogum now.

The title track from Romantic recently premiered on NPR's 'Songs We Love' and is now streaming on Spotify.

"Emotional High" previously premiered on Noisey and is now streaming on Spotify.

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.

Sinai Vessel - Announces Brokenlegged LP Due out Early 2017 Posted on October 5th, 2016

Sinai Vessel - Announces Brokenlegged LP Due out Early 2017 on Tiny Engines

Brokenlegged LP/CD out Early 2017 on Tiny Engines

• Artwork + Tracklisting Released

• RIYL: From Indian Lakes, Pedro The Lion, Kevin Devine, Foxing, Manchester Orchestra

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


Brokenlegged, the long-awaited new full-length and Tiny Engines debut from Sinai Vessel will arrive in early 2017. You can now sign up for pre-order notification here. The debut single will release later this month with pre-orders following shortly.

The band will be playing The Fest in Gainesville, FL upcoming as well as two shows in November with label-mates, Peaer.

The new album will follow up Sinai Vessel's last release, the Profanity EP, released on 12" vinyl from Flannel Gurl in the Fall of 2014. The album is also available for name-your-price download on Bandcamp.

Check out the recent studio sessions the band did with Daytrotter and Little Elephant.

Sinai Vessel describes themselves as "sissy punk" and while that might be rather tongue-in-cheek, it's accurate in the sense that Sinai Vessel are an earnest punk band wearing their hearts firmly on their sleeves. Writing songs about disillusionment, understanding, confusion, leaving home, and growing up, Sinai Vessel practices a brand of emotional vulnerability and self-reflection that comes across as truly meaningful and worthwhile. It is a difficult tightrope the band manages to walk but they do it with such skill and expertise. Much like life itself, the true power of Sinai Vessel's craft is the subtle nature in which they move.

Wild Pink - Full EP Stream on Stereogum / Out This Week / Fall Tour Posted on October 3rd, 2016

Wild Pink - Full EP Stream on Stereogum / Available For Pre-Order on Tiny Engines / Fall Tour

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

• Song Premiere on Gold Flake Paint

• RIYL: Red House Painters, Sebadoh, The American Analog Set, Bellows, Pinegrove

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


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. Digital pre-order on Bandcamp. The new releases will follow up Wild Pink's 2015 EP, Good Life.

You can stream Wild Pink's 4 Songs in full right now premiering exclusively on Stereogum.

The first single "4th of July" previously premiered on Gold Flake Paint and can be streamed on Spotify.

The band is set to embark on a Fall Tour 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.

"Pink Spit" previously premiered on Stereogum and can now be streamed on Spotify.

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.

Tiny Engines recently welcomed Brooklyn, NY's Personal Space to their roster. The label will issue the band's debut full-length, Ecstatic Burbs, in October of 2016. The vinyl is now available for Pre-Order.

You can stream the first single from Ecstatic Burbs right now. "Offering" is premiering exclusively on Stereogum.

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
