Walleater - Song Premiere on The Fader / Announce New Digital 45 on Tiny Engines Posted on April 7th, 2016

Walleater - Song Premiere on The Fader / Announce New Digital 45 on Tiny Engines

Can You Feel My Love? / Lifeline Digital 45 out 5/13/16 on Tiny Engines

I/II LP out now on Tiny Engines

• RIYL: Hum, Cloakroom, Basement, Placebo, Swervedriver

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


Tiny Engines welcomed Leeds, UK's Walleater to the roster in 2015. The band marked the label's first foreign signing. Tiny Engines released Walleater's new EP (II) collected with the band's 2014 EP (I) together as one LP, I/II, in the Summer of 2015. The band returns with a new Digital 45 in the Spring of 2016 featuring two new songs. You can pre-order Can You Feel My Love? / Lifeline via the TE Store or Bandcamp.

You can hear the first single now. "Can You Feel My Love?" is premiering exclusively on The Fader.

"Can You Feel My Love" is a more expansive direction for the band, whose melodic refrains remind me of Swervedriver, or the best vintage Foo Fighters. It will feed your dreamiest dreams with rose-colored visions of top down rides across wood-lined streets, or running across town at 2 a.m. in the pouring rain holding hands with your one true love. - The Fader

Walleater's I/II is available on Vinyl and digital can be found on iTunes, Bandcamp and Spotify.

Walleater return after their 2015 release, I/II, with two new songs that sound familiar while moving the band into more immediate waters. The band's subtle shifts in sound are effortless and once again it's that simplicity, that clear vision that separates Walleater from their peers. Call it whatever you will, Walleater are operating naturally at their own pace and in their own space.

A fair portion of Walleater’s production owes itself to nineties alternative rock (Hum and Swervedriver come to mind)...Walleater re-imagine the kind of equally leaden and lush ambiance that deserves some sort of revival. - Stereogum

The band's guitar work pulls a lot from '90s shoegaze, but Walleater don't restrict themselves to the genre. They're just as likely do ditch the swirling guitars for clean-toned Pedro the Lion-style slowcore or crunchier, riffier alternative rock - Brooklyn Vegan

Faye Joins Tiny Engines / Song Premiere on The Fader / Debut EP Available For Pre-Order Posted on April 5th, 2016

Faye Joins Tiny Engines / Song Premiere on The Fader / Debut EP Available For Pre-Order

Self-Titled EP out 5/13/16 on Tiny Engines

• RIYL: Cayetana, Sleater-Kinney, Speedy Ortiz, Ex Hex

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


Tiny Engines is excited to welcome Charlotte, NC's Faye to their roster. The label will issue the band's debut Self-Titled five-song EP on cassette and digital in May of 2016. Pre-Orders are now live. Digital pre-order on Bandcamp.

You can hear the first single from the Self-Titled EP now. "Chow Chow" is premiering exclusively on The Fader.

You can also check out a recent interview with the band on The Grey Estates. Tour dates coming soon!

Faye are a brand new indie punk rock trio from Charlotte, NC. Yet, on their self-titled debut EP, they sound incredibly polished for a band their age. Faye began quickly on the fly when high school friends Sarah Blumenthal (bass, vocals) and Kristen Leake (drums) hooked up with Susan Plante (guitar, vocals). But, you would think these three had been playing music together for years. The chemistry between the three is apparent from the start. Imagine the playful fuzz of The Breeders colliding with the indie rock attitude of Ex Hex and that might be a good reference point for where Faye is starting out. That is until you hear the EP closer, "Ancient Bones," where the band slows things down and Plante's vocals take center stage as she brings to mind the soulfulness of Neko Case. Whether the band slows things down or keeps things upbeat, these songs will leave their mark. Faye might just be getting started but they are a band that immediately sounds wise beyond their years.

Adult Mom - Announces Summer Tour with Forth Wanderers / Recording Sophomore Album / Debut LP Out Now on Tiny Engines Posted on March 30th, 2016

Adult Mom - Announces Summer Tour with Forth Wanderers / Recording Sophomore Album / Debut LP Out Now on Tiny Engines

Momentary Lapse of Happily LP out now on Tiny Engines

Stereogum Band To Watch + Interview / Song Premiere on NPR / Album Review on Pitchfork

• RIYL: Jenny Lewis, Waxahatchee, Frankie Cosmos, Liz Phair

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

Purchase, NY's Adult Mom is excited to announce a Summer Tour with Forth Wanderers. Full dates listed below. The band is also in the midst of recording their sophomore album, tentatively scheduled for release in early 2017 on Tiny Engines.

Adult Mom released their debut LP, Momentary Lapse of Happily, last Summer on Tiny Engines. The LP/CD is Available Now. Digital on iTunes or Bandcamp.

You can stream Momentary Lapse of Happily along with an interview with songwriter, Steph Knipe, on Impose. The album was also recently reviewed on Pitchfork. "Told Ya So" previously premiered on NPR and Adult Mom was also featured as a Band To Watch on Stereogum with the debut single, "Survival," streaming along with another interview. Also, check out a track review for "Survival" on Pitchfork.

Survival is the beating heart of music about struggle—The unwavering purpose of the refrain "I survive because I have died" is not the only line that sounds more like a hardcore lyric: "I set fire to abusers like a war," Knipe warns, curling the edges of each intonation with an astute bit of wearied twang, protesting for the right to be oneself. - Pitchfork

Adult Mom's music deals deeply and thoughtfully with queerness and identity, a directive made even more impressive by the upbeat, electronic-tinged folk pop the band uses to achieve it. "Told Ya So" is an encouraging note to self, in the same vein as Fiona Apple's "Extraordinary Machine." - NPR

Steph Knipe has a way of surrounding big revelations with small observations. On Adult Mom’s forthcoming debut album, the most cutting lines are surrounded by fleeting moments. That confidence comes through on the lush and cushiony Momentary Lapse Of Happily, whose clean-cut sound recalls Jenny Lewis, or contemporaries like Frankie Cosmos and Waxahatchee. - Stereogum

Momentary Lapse of Happily will follow up Adult Mom's 2014 Sometimes Bad Happens EP on Miscreant Records. You can download that EP on Bandcamp now. Rolling Stones's Rob Sheffield named the EP one of the 10 Best Cassettes of 2014.

Adult Mom is the project of one Steph Knipe of Purchase College, NY. Started in, and forever brewed in a bedroom, Adult Mom is an exploration into the darker subjects of life, the personal and explicit we are often told to keep to ourselves. At the forefront of Adult Mom is honesty and intimacy as Knipe writes clever pop songs that offer a glimpse into the journey of a gender-weird queer navigating through heartache, trauma and subsequent growth.

Life is about temporary moments in time. Everything is fleeting. Love is not lost, it just falls off and manifests elsewhere. With their debut LP, Momentary Lapse of Happily, Adult Mom bravely shines a light on the darkness and allows the listener to experience and feel those moments along with them. The album may be a snapshot of the temporary but the listen is one that will stay with you long after.

Sleepy Kids LP out now

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

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

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


Tiny Engines released the debut full-length, Sleepy Kids, from Brooklyn NY's Haybaby in October of 2015. Wasting no time, the band returns this Spring with a new five song EP called Blood Harvest, due out 4/29/16. The EP is available for Pre-Order on Cassette and Digital on Bandcamp.

You can hear the first single from Blood Harvest right now. "Joke/Rope" is premiering exclusively on The Fader.

"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

The band is currently on a large US Spring tour in support of Sleepy Kids and Blood Harvest. Remaining dates listed below.

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

You can see Haybaby's recent video for "Doored" from Sleepy Kids on Brooklyn Vegan. The album premiered in full on Stereogum in October. The band was also 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.

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

“This might be the sound of the Hotelier tearing the building down, but they’re working towards something monumental.” - Pitchfork (8.2)

"The Hotelier channel the angsty burn of Jawbreaker, Titus Andronicus’ feel for ramshackle compositions, and Les Savy Fav’s precision-wound riffs into music that brims with personality.” - Pitchfork

“Home fires on all cylinders — these songs are sometimes boldly tuneful, sometimes howling ragefests and always utterly exhausting.” - The New York Times

“Home nods confidentially at its forebears (Sunny Day Real Estate, The Weakerthans, Get Up Kids, etc.) even as it slashes a path all its own.” - Spin

“Home Like No Place Is There has the makings of a defining record for its genre.” - Noisey

Sinai Vessel - Announces March Tour / New LP Due out on Tiny Engines Summer 2016 Posted on February 17th, 2016

Sinai Vessel - Announces March Tour / New LP Due out on Tiny Engines Summer 2016

Profanity 12" out now on Flannel Gurl

Daytrotter + Little Elephant Sessions

• RIYL: Cursive, Pedro The Lion, Manchester Orchestra

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


Tiny Engines welcomed Sinai Vessel to the label roster in 2015. The band has just wrapped up recording and mixing on their new full-length. The album is due out on Tiny Engines in the Summer of 2016. More release news to come soon! The band will head out for some shows in March upcoming. Dates listed below. Tour flyer here.

The band recently did studio sessions with Daytrotter and Little Elephant.

The new album will follow up the 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.

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.

See Through Dresses - Begin Recording New LP for Tiny Engines / Announce March Tour Dates Posted on February 17th, 2016

See Through Dresses - Begin Recording New LP / Announce March Tour Dates

End Of Days 12" out now on Tiny Engines

• Premiere & Interview on Noisey / Premieres on Impose + Stereogum

• RIYL: The Cure, Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, 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 now in stock in the TE Store. Digital available on Bandcamp, iTunes and Spotify.

See Through Dresses began recording sessions for their sophomore full-length in January. The record is due out later this year on Tiny Engines. The band are once again heading back out on the road after a run of dates with Cursive, Beach Slang and Cymbals Eat Guitars in 2015. March 2016 shows listed below.

You can hear See Through Dresses' End Of Days in full on Impose. "Drag Scene" previously premiered on Stereogum 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

The band's 2013 Self-Titled LP is available for streaming/download on Bandcamp, iTunes and Spotify.

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.

Haybaby - Video Premiere on Brooklyn Vegan / Named one of Stereogum’s 50 Best New Bands Of 2015 / Debut LP Out on Tiny Engines / On Tour Now Posted on November 12th, 2015

Haybaby - Video Premiere on Brooklyn Vegan / Debut LP Available Now on Tiny Engines / On Tour Now

Sleepy Kids LP out now on Tiny Engines
• Named One of Stereogum’s 50 Best New Bands Of 2015
• RIYL: Blonde Redhead, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Breeders, Girlpool

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

Tiny Engines released the debut full-length, Sleepy Kids, from Brooklyn NY's Haybaby in October. The LP is Available Now, in stock and shipping! Digital avalable on iTunes or Bandcamp. The band is currently on tour. Dates listed below. Chicago date with Frankie Cosmos and All Dogs. Brooklyn album release show on November 20th at Shea Stadium.

You can see Haybaby's video for "Doored" from Sleepy Kids premiering exclusively on Brooklyn Vegan right now. The album premiered in full on Stereogum in October. The band was also named as one of Stereogum’s 50 Best New Bands Of 2015.

"Doored" previously premiered on Noisey and Haybaby was also featured as a Band To Watch on Stereogum with the debut single, "Her," streaming along with a band interview.

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

Somewhere between the art punk of Blonde Redhead and Sonic Youth, the classic indie rock of The Pixies and The Breeders and the attitude of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Haybaby impatiently reside. The band also sprinkles a little bit of sludge and noise pop into the mix and balances their raw energy with deceptive and captivating melodies. There are brilliant structures at play here as Haybaby deftly allows these songs to create their own personalities. The band can be in your face with lyrical realness one moment while the next finds them casually sneaking a beautiful line right past you. But, regardless the approach, direct or indirect, Haybaby are thoughtful and creative with every musical step they take. These songs simply draw you in. They tell you stories. They kick your ass. They make you feel something. Sleepy Kids is the sound of a band probing to find that sweet spot and we're just happy to listen to the process.
