See Through Dresses - Full EP Stream on Impose / New 12" EP Available For Pre-Order on Tiny Engines / Fall Tour

End Of Days out 10/30/15 on Tiny Engines
• Song Premiere & Interview on Noisey + Song Premiere on 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 earlier this year. The band's Tiny Engines debut, End Of Days, a six song 12," is now available for Pre-Order. Digital pre-order on Bandcamp or iTunes. The band is once again heading back out on tour after a run of dates with Cursive, Beach Slang and Cymbals Eat Guitars already this year. Dates listed below.

You can hear See Through Dresses' End Of Days in its entirety right now, streaming exclusively on Impose.

"Drag Scene" previously premiered on Stereogum and "Haircut" previously premiered on Noisey, along with a band interview.

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 are everything you love about grunge, punk, art rock, indie rock and riot grrrl rolled into one adorable three piece band. - Noisey

...a powerful, no-nonsense record that sounds prickly, immediate, and engaging. - Stereogum

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

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.

Look Mexico - Announces New LP / Slated For Spring 2016 Release on Tiny Engines Posted on October 15th, 2015

Look Mexico - Announces New LP / Slated For Spring 2016 Release on Tiny Engines

Uniola LP out March 2016 on Tiny Engines
• Artwork + Tracklisting Released
• RIYL: Broken Social Scene, Minus The Bear, Death Cab For Cutie, American Football

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


Tiny Engines and Look Mexico are excited to announce the band's long awaited third full-length. The LP, entitled Uniola, is expected to arrive in the Spring of 2016 and will be the band's first release since 2011's Real Americans Spear It EP on Adeline Records. You can sign up to be notified when pre-orders for Uniola go live here.

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, 2016 will see the second Look Mexico release courtesy of the Carolina-based indie label.

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.

Look Mexico will be playing a few shows upcoming including The Fest in Gainesville, FL. Dates are listed below.

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

Adult Mom - Full Album Stream + Interview Feature on Impose / Debut LP Available For Pre-Order on Tiny Engines Posted on July 28th, 2015

Adult Mom - Full Album Stream on Impose / Debut LP Available For Pre-Order on Tiny Engines

Momentary Lapse of Happily LP out 7/31/15 on Tiny Engines
Stereogum Band To Watch + Interview / Song Premiere on NPR / Album Review on Pitchfork
• 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, on 7/31/15. The LP/CD is now available for Pre-Order. Digital pre-order on iTunes or Bandcamp. Adult Mom has their record release show at The Silent Barn in Brooklyn on 7/29.

You can stream Momentary Lapse of Happily in full now, along with an interview with songwriter, Steph Knipe, exclusively on Impose. The album was also just 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.
