Signals Midwest - New LP out Fall 2016 on Tiny Engines / Produced by Into It. Over It.’s Evan Weiss Posted on June 8th, 2016

Signals Midwest - New LP out Fall 2016 on Tiny Engines / Produced by Into It. Over It.’s Evan Weiss

At This Age LP/CD out 9/2/16 on Tiny Engines

• Artwork & Tracklisting Released

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

Tiny Engines is excited to announce a new full-length from Cleveland, OH's Signals Midwest. The label will issue the band's new LP, At This Age, in September of 2016. Recorded at Atlas Studios in Chicago, IL in September of 2015, the album was produced by Into It. Over It.’s Evan Weiss. You can sign up for pre-order notification here. Check out the album video teaser here.

At This Age will follow up the band's previous LPs on Tiny Engines, 2013's Light On The Lake and 2011's Latitudes And Longitudes. You can stream those albums on Bandcamp or Spotify.

Signals Midwest has some upcoming shows and will once again be playing The Fest. Full dates listed below.

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

Strange Relations - Song Premiere on Stereogum / New EP Available For Pre-Order Posted on June 1st, 2016

Strange Relations - Song Premiere on Stereogum / New EP Available For Pre-Order on Tiny Engines

Going Out EP out 7/8/16 on Tiny Engines

• RIYL: Warpaint, Blonde Redhead, Electrelane, Alvvays, Now, Now

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


Tiny Engines recently welcomed Minneapolis, MN's Strange Relations to their roster. The label will release the band's new Going Out EP in July with a new full-length to follow in 2017. The EP is now available for Pre-Order on cassette. Digital pre-order on Bandcamp. Pre-Orders from the TE Store or Bandcamp come with an extra bonus song.

You can hear the first single from Going Out now. "Ceremonies" is streaming exclusively on Stereogum.

Going Out will follow up Strange Relations' 2015 debut full-length, -Centrism.

With influences ranging from shoegaze to dream pop to post-punk, Strange Relations harness the cold isolation of long, harsh Minneapolis winters and create something warm and powerful. The trio, led by Casey Sowa (vocals/drums), along with her long-time partner in crime Marisa Helgeson (bass, synth), and friend Nate Hart-Andersen (guitar), expertly craft intoxicating pop songs that brim with frustration and desire. These are intimate pop songs with big ambition. The band's new EP, Going Out, delivers on the promise shown on their 2015 debut LP, -Centrism. From the sharp, playfulness of "Drift" to the atmospheric new wave pop of "Ceremonies" to the confessional stream-of-conscious lyrics on "Weeknites," these songs sparkle with depth, character and an impressive range. The jittery bounce on "Predation" with the lyric "you're not gonna wanna get in my way" speaks the truth. Strange Relations are onto something so you better watch out.

Uniola LP out 6/24/16 on Tiny Engines

• Song Premiere on Spin

• RIYL: Broken Social Scene, Minus The Bear, Death Cab For Cutie, The Dismemberment Plan

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


Tiny Engines welcomed Look Mexico back into the fold in 2013 as the band celebrated their 10 year anniversary. In 2008, Tiny Engines' very first release was Look Mexico's Gasp Asp 7". And eight years later the label and band are excited to announce the long awaited third full-length. The LP, entitled Uniola, is officially out 6/24/16 and will be the band's first release since 2011's Real Americans Spear It EP.

Vinyl Pre-Orders for Uniola are now live. Digital pre-order on Bandcamp. All other digital outlets can be found here.

You can stream the second single from Uniola now. "Well, Kansas Ain't What It Used To Be." is premiering exclusively on Alternative Press.

"We Are Groot." previously premiered on Spin who said the song was ...propelled by a Broken Social Scene drum cascade and gorgeous dueling Dismemberment Plan riffs.

Look Mexico steadily built a cult status on the backs of endless touring and early releases like 2007's classic This Is Animal Music LP and the following Gasp Asp EP, influencing countless other bands who would follow. After a whirlwind few years shuffling between cities and labels the band would slow things down after 2011's Real American Spear It. But, listening to Uniola you get the feeling that perhaps that was the best thing for the band. Through marriage, kids and life in general, Look Mexico has slowly crafted a mature album that speaks to growing older and wiser yet still unmistakably captures the essence of the band. The album manages to build upon the magic of those earlier releases while adding a newfound soulful depth to the band's songwriting. Four years in the making, Uniola proves that good things come to those who wait.

You can listen to the band's full catalog on Bandcamp.

“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

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

• Song Premieres on Stereogum + The Fader

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

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


Tiny Engines recently welcomed 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 and Apple Music. The band has some upcoming shows this month. Dates listed below.

You can hear Faye's Self-Titled debut EP in full now, premiering exclusively on Spin.

"Ancient Bones" previously premiered on Stereogum and "Chow Chow" on The Fader. Stream them on Spotify as well.

You can also check out recent interviews with the band on Creative Loafing and The Grey Estates.

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.

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.

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, Bandcamp or Apple Music.

You can hear the second single now. "Lifeline" is premiering on Upset. You can also stream it directly on Soundcloud and Youtube.

Can You Feel My Love?" previously premiered on The Fader and can be streamed on Spotify as well.

"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

Blood Harvest EP out 4/29/16 on Tiny Engines

• Song Premieres on 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 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 and Apple Music.

You can hear Blood Harvest in full right now, streaming exclusively on Spin.

"Pig" previously premiered on Stereogum. You can stream it on Spotify now as well. "Joke/Rope" previously premiered on The Fader. You can also stream it on Spotify.

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.

"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

“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

Look Mexico - Song Premiere on Spin / New LP Available for Pre-Order on Tiny Engines Posted on April 20th, 2016

Look Mexico - Song Premiere on Spin / New LP Available for Pre-Order on Tiny Engines

Uniola LP out 6/24/16 on Tiny Engines

• Artwork + Tracklisting Released

• RIYL: Broken Social Scene, Minus The Bear, Death Cab For Cutie, American Football, The Dismemberment Plan

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


Tiny Engines welcomed Look Mexico back into the fold in 2013 as the band celebrated their 10 year anniversary. In 2008, Tiny Engines' very first release was Look Mexico's Gasp Asp 7". And eight years later the label and band are excited to announce the long awaited third full-length. The LP, entitled Uniola, is officially out 6/24/16 and will be the band's first release since 2011's Real Americans Spear It EP on Adeline Records. Pre-Orders for Uniola are now live.

You can check out the first new song from Look Mexico in close to five years right now. The first single from Uniola, "We Are Groot." is premiering exclusively on Spin.

...propelled by a Broken Social Scene drum cascade and gorgeous dueling Dismemberment Plan riffs... - Spin

Look Mexico steadily built a cult status on the backs of endless touring and early releases like 2007's classic This Is Animal Music LP and the following Gasp Asp EP, influencing countless other bands who would follow. After a whirlwind few years shuffling between cities and labels the band would slow things down after 2011's Real American Spear It. But, listening to Uniola you get the feeling that perhaps that was the best thing for the band. Through marriage, kids and life in general, Look Mexico has slowly crafted a mature album that speaks to growing older and wiser yet still unmistakably captures the essence of the band. The album manages to build upon the magic of those earlier releases while adding a newfound soulful depth to the band's songwriting. Four years in the making, Uniola proves that good things come to those who wait.

You can listen to the band's full catalog on Bandcamp.
