Tiny Engines Announces New It Looks Sad. Digital Single / Song Premiere on Stereogum / Debut 7" Available Now

• Kaiju Digital Single out 6/19/15 on Tiny Engines 
• Self-Titled 7" available now on Tiny Engines
• RIYL: Beach Fossils, Surfer Blood, Bombay Bicycle Club, Foals, Wu Lyf


Charlotte, NC's It Looks Sad. are back with a new two song digital single, Kaiju, due out June 19th on Tiny Engines. The release follows up the band's proper Self-Titled debut 7" on TE. You can pre-order Kaiju digitally on the TE StoreBandcamp or iTunes.

You can hear the first single from Kaiju now. "Creature" is premiering exclusively on Stereogum. From their 2014 release, the band dropped a video for "Fingers" late last year on The AV Club as well.

...the sound of their new single "Radical" is a far-flung departure for the label, featuring tangled, pinging gutiars reminiscent of Tarheel ex-pats Beach Fossils. There's still some no-qualifiers punk in It Looks Sad.'s post-punk, as Jimmy Turner's lunging, aggressive vocals reflect "Radical"'s morbid concerns ("Just trying to sleep out on my deathbed...I want to go back"), and align them with Tiny Engines' more typically unstable, jittery sound. - Pitchfork

“Ocean” is the closing track from It Looks Sad.’s upcoming debut EP, and while it’s built on a post-punk backbone, it has more in common with the early math rock of Foals or the heavy pop of WU LYF. In fact, vocalist Jimmy Turner shares the same mumbling, cathartic quality that made the WU LYF record so special, always swallowing his own words and never quite settling into the music. - Stereogum

The latest taste of that debut, “Raccoon”, captures the current and fresh feeling of the band. Shimmering guitars invoke a summery, DIIV aesthetic, while the vocals could easily fit on a less-subdued Real Estate track. It’s an approximation of chillwave trends that feels far from a bandwagon attempt, more like a celebration of indie-rock as it sounds in 2014. -Consequence Of Sound

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. Tiny Engines, released the band's proper Self-Titled debut in the Summer of 2014. The digital single,Kaiju, to be released in the Summer of 2015, continues the band's onward progression.

Adult Mom - Band To Watch (Song Premiere + Interview) on Stereogum / Debut LP Out Summer 2015 on Tiny Engines / Upcoming Shows

• Momentary Lapse of Happily LP out 7/28/15 on Tiny Engines 
• Artwork + Tracklisting Released
• RIYL: Jenny Lewis, Waxahatchee, Frankie Cosmos, Liz Phair


Tiny Engines recently welcomed Purchase, NY's Adult Mom to the TE family. The label will release Adult Mom's debut LP, Momentary Lapse of Happily, in the Summer of 2015. Adult Mom are headed out on a slew of tour dates this Summer, solo and full band. Check the full list of dates below.

You can now hear the first single from Momentary Lapse of Happily. Adult Mom is featured as a Band To Watch on Stereogum with the debut single, "Survival," streaming. The song premiere is accompanied by an interview with Steph Knipe of Adult Mom.

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.

See Through Dresses Joins Tiny Engines / New EP Out Fall 2015 / Upcoming European Tour

• New EP out Fall 2015 on Tiny Engines 
• Self-Titled LP available on Bandcamp / iTunes / Spotify
• RIYL: The Cure, Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, Creepoid, Pity Sex


Tiny Engines is excited to welcome Omaha, NE's See Through Dresses to the label roster. Fresh off recent tour dates with Cursive and Beach Slang the band recorded six new songs that will make up their Tiny Engines debut. The EP will be released in the Fall of 2015. The band leaves next week for a month long European tour and have one local show with Matt Pond PA beforehand. Full dates listed below.

The band's 2013 Self-Titled LP is available for streaming/download on BandcampiTunes 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.
