Annabel - Song Premiere on The Fader / New LP Coming Soon on Tiny Engines

• Having It All out June 2015 on Tiny Engines 
• RIYL: Nada Surf, The Sidekicks, Japandroids, Tokyo Police Club, Death Cab For Cutie

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

Tiny Engines recently announced the release of Having It All, the third full-length from Kent, Ohio's Annabel. The new album was produced by Evan Weiss of Into It. Over It.. Tiny Engines will release the record in June of 2015. You can sign up to be notified when pre-orders go live here! Check out the video teaser for the album here.

You can now hear the second single from Having It All. "Another Day, Another Vitamin" is premiering exclusively on The Fader. "Everything" previously premiered on Stereogum. The track was also featured/reviewed on Pitchfork andHalf Cloth.

In a fitting valediction for a song that's both humble, populist and aspirational in the tradition of emotive, Midwestern indie rock, Hendricks offers, "Not everything should need to have a meaning/ And not every second counts." It's not negative or cynical. It's a cry of freedom, of allowing life to happen on its own terms and finding meaning as it comes. - Pitchfork

The hallmarks pulse through their music: jangling guitars, lingering syllables, trembling drums, crunching tones that swirl upward and finally settle. You can hear all of that in “Everything,” the first single from the band’s upcoming third album, Having It All, which Into It. Over It.’s Evan Weiss produced. It’s the kind of song-cyclone that emotionally decimates, its grand yearning stirring up memories you thought you’d outlived. When the amp buzz finally quits at the end, you’re leveled — and it’s completely exhilarating. - Stereogum

At three minutes and 30 seconds, the song has space to move around, and the band’s singular grasp on songcraft means that a late-developing grower of a bridge pays off with a final, striking quiet/loud climax, one that features an even more flexible vocal performance from Hendricks, who adds a bit of warm rasp whenever the surroundings are quiet enough. It takes a real sense of balance and taste to be both the thinking-person’s indie-pop act and a group that grasps the easy-going pleasures of, say, Tokyo Police Club or Jimmy Eat World. More than any band in their broad milieu, you get the sense that you can trust Annabel with melodies and hooks and, ultimately, ideas. - Half Cloth

Having It All follows up numerous releases from the band on the Count Your Lucky Stars label. Also, Annabel previously released their 2010 EP, Here We Are Tomorrow, on Tiny Engines. You can currently stream the entire Annabel discography on Bandcamp. Also, check out an in-depth interview with Annabel from the Summer of 2014 on Half Cloth.

On appearances alone, Akron, Ohio’s Annabel could be any modest midwestern rock band—scrawny, bespectacled, with grins as permanent as their tattoos. A similar innocence might be perceived in their songs, in guitars that jingle and a bass that romps puppy-like, in vocals that compete with the music like a little brother for attention. But subsequent listens will reveal Annabel to be a band whose elements tangle into something complex and complete and . Indeed, Having It All feels orchestral at times, with guitars that intertwine and sometimes collapse into harmonic hums. The sticky chords on “The Fortunate Ones,” for example, are wrenched around by a stubborn drumbeat until a quiet chorus, during which singer Ben Hendricks warbles beneath the thrumming rhythm and whispering organ; toward the end, though, that quiet chorus rises into a roar during which melody burns white hot and the instruments, indistinguishable, melt into a pummeling progression. At no point does this complexity weigh the album down; instead, Annabel’s third full-length (and first with Tiny Engines since 2010’s Here We Are Tomorrow) feels joyful. The toms on “The Importance of Disappointment” bob with a rubber bounce, skip beneath guitars that spiral and spin like melodic mandalas. Even songs like the distant “Days In Between” and “How To: A Self-Help Guide,” whose acoustic strokes chop through spectral wisps, don’t sound like sad songs; instead, they serve as breathers, counterbalance the songs that seem breathless. This busyness doesn’t make Annabel any less modest; their music still possesses some pastoral, midwestern appeal. It’s just that their seeming simplicity, however sweet, may be more plentiful than it appears.

Sinai Vessel Joins Tiny Engines / Recording Debut LP with Chris Crisci (Appleseed Cast) / Upcoming Shows

• Profanity 12" out now on Flannel Gurl 
• RIYL: Cursive, Pedro The Lion, Manchester Orchestra

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

Tiny Engines is thrilled to welcome Sinai Vessel to the label's roster. The band will head into the studio in May to record their debut full-length with Chris Crisci of The Appleseed Cast. The album will follow up the band's last release, the Profanity EP, recently 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.

The band has some upcoming shows. Dates listed below. More Summer tour dates coming soon!

Tiny Engines recently welcome Leeds, UK's Walleater to the roster. The band marks the label's first foreign signing. Tiny Engines will release Walleater's new EP (II) collected with the band's 2014 EP (I) together as one LP in the Summer of 2015. Sign up to be notified when I/II is available for pre-order here.

The 2014 EP (I) is currently available directly from the band viaBandcamp for name-your-price download.

UK label, Close To Home Records, is doing a two part 7" series for EP1. Those are available here.

Some bands spend years searching for their true sound as they strain under the weight of influences, trends or expectations. Other bands just sound naturally comfortable in their own skin. Walleater is one of those bands. Throw whatever tag you want upon the young UK band, Walleater occupies their own space and they do so with a remarkably clear artistic vision. The band has a penchant for melody and suspense, a certain flare for the dramatic build and release. However, this never comes at the expense of the song. Nothing is contrived or forced, every note serves a purpose and every piece of the puzzle fits. And that simplicity, that organic quality, that is where Walleater's sound begins and ends.

I/II - Track Listing

1. Give In To Me
2. Just A Boy
3. Glow
4. What Do You Know?
5. Swallow You
6. Perfect Sin

8. Keep It Strange
