It Looks Sad. - Song Premiere on Stereogum / Debut 7" Pre-Order Available On Tiny Engines

• Self-Titled 7" out August 2014 on Tiny Engines 
• Previous song premieres on Pitchfork + Consequence Of Sound
• RIYL: Beach Fossils, Surfer Blood, Bombay Bicycle Club, Foals


The debut Self-Titled 7" from Charlotte, NC's It Looks Sad. is available forPre-Order on Tiny Engines. Digital pre-order on Bandcamp. The 7" is set for official release in August.

You can check out a new song from the band's debut 7" now. "Oceans" is premiering exclusively on Stereogum. Additionally, you can check out previous It Looks Sad. song premieres on Consequence Of Sound and Pitchfork.

It Looks Sad. originally began playing shows in early 2012 under the name It Looks Sad, That's Why I Said It's You. After a few line-up shifts the band emerged in late 2013 under the shortened name, It Looks Sad. In the Winter of 2013 the band recorded a handful of shimmering, sharp guitar pop / post-punk songs that echo the influence of bands like Surfer Blood and Beach Fossils. Along with the shortened moniker, It Looks Sad. professes a leaner, more straight-forward approach with their new material. The band's live show is also something to behold as their songs are given a bit more power and room to breathe. Hometown label, Tiny Engines, will release the band's proper Self-Titled debut in the Summer of 2014.

The band has some summer tour dates upcoming. Details below:

Dikembe - Song Premiere on Spin / New LP Available For Pre-Order On Tiny Engines / Tour with Weatherbox Upcoming

• Mediumship LP out August 2014 on Tiny Engines 
• First song premeire on Noisey/Vice 
• Split 7" with The Jazz June Available Now
• RIYL: Brand New, Manchester Orchestra, Balance & Composure


The sophomore LP from indie/emo band, Dikembe, entitled Mediumship, is now available for Pre-Order. The LP is officially out in August on Tiny Engines. Digital pre-order on Bandcamp. In support of the record the band will be hitting the road for a full US tour with Weatherbox, starting in July. Dates listed below.

You can hear a new song from Mediumship now. "Get Harder" is streaming exclusively on Spin. Also, "Hood Rat Messiah" previously premiered on Noisey/Vice along with an interview with front man, Steven Gray.

Halfway through its first track it might seem safe to assume that Dikembe’s sophomore record is more interested in melody than mood.Mediumship favors dynamics and depth and space to explore. These songs haunt, to say the least, maybe because the band has nudged melody further to the forefront. It’s only during subsequent listens that one realizes how moody Dikembe’s melodies actually are, it comes from feedback that rises like a sunset haze, chords that drone like a tree of cicadas—the sounds that swell behind the melody—at which point it becomes clear that the band is no less noisy than on their preceding releases, just more strategic. Mediumshipreveals Dikembe as band that has mastered their sound and is now flexing all their musical muscles.

Also, Dikembe recently debuted a new song from their split 7" with The Jazz June, out now on Tiny Engines / Topshelf. "Healer Of The Pride" was recorded during the Mediumship sessions. You can hear the song on Pitchfork. The split 7" vinyl is available for Order or digitally on Bandcamp.

Mediumship follows up the band's previous TE albums, the Broad Shoulders LP and the Chicago Bowls EP. Of note, Pre-Orders for the 3rd pressing of Broad Shoulders are now available as well.

Beach Slang Joins Tiny Engines / New Release Out Fall 2014

• Sophomore Release Coming Fall 2014 on Tiny Engines
• Who Would Ever Want Anything So Broken? 7" out now on Dead Broke 
• RIYL: The Replacements, Jawbreaker, Goo Goo Dolls, Superchunk, Japandroids


Following quickly on the heels of their breakthrough debut, Philadelphia, PA's Beach Slang will head right back in the studio in late June to record a new release that will come out in the Fall on Tiny Engines. The new material will follow up the band's debut EP, Who Would Ever Want Anything So Broken?.

Beach Slang have been the talk of the scene this year making a big splash with their powerful debut EP, Who Would Ever Want Anything So Broken?. A supergroup of sorts, featuring James Snyder of Weston, JP Flexner of Ex-Friends and Ed McNulty, formerly of Nona, currently of Crybaby, Beach Slang's seamless mix of indie, emo and pop/punk is the perfect punk rock Summer soundtrack.

Who Would Ever Want Anything So Broken? is now available for Order from Dead Broke Rekerds. The EP is also available digitally on Bandcamp, as well as iTunes andSpotify. The EP was recorded in August 2013 at The Gradwell House In Haddon Heights, NJ by Dave Downham and mastered at Armstrong Recording Studio in Tulsa, Oklahoma by Stephen Egerton.

The band will be playing their very first shows this month with Crow Bait (Don Giovanni). Dates are listed below. The band has also been confirmed for The Fest in Gainesville this Fall. More shows to come!

Summer Shows

JUN 12 - Long Island, NY @ Soul Sounds
JUN 13 - Brooklyn, NY @ Suburbia
JUN 14 - Philadelphia, PA @ Golden Tea House

OCT 31 - NOV 02: Gainesville, FL (The Fest!)

"And whereas Snyder’s band Weston defined being an awkward teenager in the 90s, Beach Slang catches up with that same goofy kid at forty, stoked as ever on punk rock and loud, brash guitars." - Noisey (feature)

"There's a careening, about-to-explode urgency of the guitars on Who Would Ever Want Anything So Broken? that's every bit as crucial to these songs' emotional heft as Snyder's lyrics...It may stick pretty close to the down-and-out, but Broken's a fairly life-affirming record." - Pitchfork (full review)

"Who Would Ever Want Anything So Broken, sounds like it could've come from an alternate-universe 1996 where Weston matured, maintained their facility for shoutalong hooks, and ruled's a goddamn shame that no radio station is going to give this the kind of airplay it deserves." - Pitchfork (track review)
