Strange Relations - Song Premiere on Heartbreaking Bravery / New EP Available For Pre-Order on Tiny Engines Posted on July 1st, 2016

Strange Relations - Song Premiere on Heartbreaking Bravery / 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 second single from Going Out now. "Weeknites" is streaming on Heartbreaking Bravery. You can also check it out on Spotify. "Ceremonies" previously premiered 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.

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

• RIYL: The Sidekicks, Cheap Girls, Into It Over It, The Smith Street Band

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


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. CD/LP Pre-Orders are now live. Check out the album video teaser here.

You can stream the first single from At This Age right now. "West Side Summer" is premiering exclusively on Stereogum.

Signals Midwest has some upcoming shows starting this weekend. The band will once again be playing The Fest as well. Full dates listed below.

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.

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

Look Mexico - Full Album Stream on The AV Club / New LP Out This Week on Tiny Engines Posted on June 20th, 2016

Look Mexico - Full Album Premiere on The AV Club / New LP Available for Pre-Order on Tiny Engines

Uniola LP out 6/24/16 on Tiny Engines

• Song Premieres on Spin + Alternative Press + Brooklyn Vegan

• 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 now stream Uniola in full exclusively on The AV Club.

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

Look Mexico have a similar knack to blending math rock with pop music to Minus the Bear, Maps & Atlases, and comparative newcomers A Great Big Pile of Leaves. If you’re into those bands but you don’t listen to Look Mexico, you should change that now. “t’s been a while since a great album in this style came out, so this fills a void that really needed to be filled. - Brooklyn Vegan

Look Mexico's record release show is June 25th in Tallahassee with more upcoming dates on the horizon. The band will once again be playing The Fest as well. Shows listed below.

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.

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.

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.

Walleater - Song Premieres on Upset + The Fader / New Digital 45 / Upcoming Shows Posted on May 6th, 2016

Walleater - Song Premieres on Upset + The Fader / New Digital 45 / Upcoming Shows

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
