The Spirit Of The Beehive has a way of juxtaposing the pretty with the messy, making taut songs that feel a little off-axis, with sudden, jagged-edged outbursts that come when you least expect them. - NPR

It oscillates between moments of beautiful, unbearable vulnerability and a tarnished ambience that slides towards tightly-packed noise - Stereogum

pleasure suck

With their third release, pleasure suck, Philadelphia, PA's The Spirit of the Beehive continue to slowly rot your brain with sad, beautiful pop songs and sweet melodies buried under noisy, psychedelic rock. Traversing the ghostly back-roads of indie rock with hypnotizing results, there's a certain air of mysteriousness that surrounds the band and their music. Detached yet full engaged, The Spirit of the Beehive seem to float back and forth between fantasy and reality. Vocals are often buried and distorted. Songs evolve slowly and dissipate quickly, yet linger in the air long after they are gone. Shifting between ambiance and lo-fi pop, with fits of noise in between, the band's attention to detail and mood are impressive. What emerges from the darkness is a band that seems impossible to explain or categorize, yet fully engrossing. Experimental and ambitious without sacrificing melody, The Spirit of the Beehive are that rare band that may always be difficult to describe but never fail to make a lasting impression, even if you aren't quite sure what the hell you just witnessed.

- Jouska Debut Album 'topiary' Out Now on Tiny Engines
- Recording New EP, Due Out Fall 2017
- Band Announces January Shows
Tiny Engines recently welcomed Albany, NY's Jouska to the label family and released the band's debut album, topiary.

The physical album (CD/Cassette) is officially out now:
TE Store / Bandcamp / Apple Music + iTunes / Spotify / All Outlets

Jouska heads back into the studio this week to begin recording on a new EP, scheduled for release later this year on Tiny Engines.

The band will be playing a handful of shows later this month. Check the dates below.


"Striking entrees that consolidated the anxious post-rock and ambient experimentation of Appleseed Cast and Aereogramme’s entire careers into one album." - SPIN

“Jouska know how to walk the line between drama and melodrama, always pushing the emotion of the songs as far as possible before pulling back and allowing everything to settle.”POST-TRASH

“Authentic and genuine ... a record full of introspection, angst, and the erratic feelings that come as a result of struggling to cope with reality.”THE ALTERNATIVE

"Albany four-piece Jouska’s music has an eerie, distant quality."DIY MAG
Jouska - topiary
RIYL: The World Is, Foxing, Teen Suicide, Alex G

Albany’s Jouska has been called many things since emerging from up- state New York’s underground DIY scene last year, most of which have little commonality other than clashing definitions: authentic, angsty, dreamlike, discordant, experimental, somber and uplifting to name a few. One blog even categorized the quartet’s debut full-length as “ghost-rock.” It’s a curious term, but apropos as the nine tracks on the gorgeous, captivating topiary transmit as both otherworldly and achingly mysterious. Nevertheless, for all its ethereal qualities, the album is not unclassifiable ... providing you can embrace topiary’s impressive depth and ambition. As evidence, Jouska expertly navigates post-rock’s ebbs-and-flows and the dreamy, atmospheric soundscapes of shoegaze while exploring emo’s earnestness and simultaneously traversing lo-fi bedroom pop that’s awash in reverb and a lackadaisical-yet-consoling vocal delivery.

Most notably though, Jouska never loses sight of accessibility. The band’s range is terrific and its mastery over dynamics, restraint and momentum is unmatched. Still, it’s the knack for lush melodies and the ability to continually build upon instrumental passages before hitting critical mass which make for a truly special listen. Simply put, topiary is spectral and weighty, yet completely satisfying and rewarding. It’s a record that begs to be revisited and gives back with every absorbing spin.

Wild Pink Debut Album out February 2017 on Tiny Engines
New Song "Wanting Things Makes You Shittier" Out Now
Pre-Orders Available Now
Tiny Engines recently announced the Self-Titled debut full-length from NYC's Wild Pink.

You can hear the new single "Wanting Things Makes You Shittier" now on...

Bandcamp / Soundcloud / Spotify /Youtube

"Wizard of Loneliness" previously premiered on Gold Flake Paint and "Great Apes" on The AV Club.

All singles are now streaming on Spotify.

The album will follow up the band's recent 4 Songs EP.


“Wizard Of Loneliness” is a subdued, somber account of loneliness in the presence of another, but it makes for a wonderfully affecting two-and-a-half minutes regardless - Gold Flake Paint

...serves as a pivot from the raw, driving power of their earlier output to a more taut and atmospheric sound. - Stereogum
The album is due out 2/24/17 and is now available for Pre-Order:
TE Store / Apple Music + iTunes / Bandcamp / All Outlets
Wild Pink "Wild Pink" LP/CD
RIYL: Red House Painters, American Analog Set, Bellows, Pinegrove

Wild Pink released their debut EP, Good Life, in the Summer of 2015. It was a brief but memorable introduction to the band's brand of introspective indie pop/rock. After numerous tours in support of Good Life the band hunkered down with Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr., Speedy Ortiz, Kindling, Sweet John Bloom) to record new songs. What grew from those sessions was actually two new releases. First, 4 Songs, a supplemental EP out this past October. But, more importantly, the band's Self-Titled debut LP, slated for release in February 2017 on Tiny Engines.

Wild Pink are one of those wonderfully rare bands that sounds instantly familiar upon first listen. Yet trying to draw parallels to their influences or similar bands proves to be incredibly difficult. That remains the same as Wild Pink continue to chart their own unique course as the band grows more expansive in their sound and ambitious in their songwriting. These new songs move at their own intentional pace while the band fleshes their arrangements out further. Yet the songs never suffer, only growing more dynamic and more propulsive with this increased nuance. Wild Pink doesn't lose the warm intimacy that made the band special, it's only enhanced to a greater degree here. These are deeply personal songs about freedom, or lack thereof, about growing up and leaving your youth behind yet still clinging to those sacred scars that we hold dear. Often exercising a stream of conscious lyrical style, Wild Pink has a remarkable way of transporting you to those moments in time where the smallest detail remains etched into your being. There is a sincerity that echoes throughout these songs that is intoxicating and speaks to what makes the band so special. Wild Pink choose the road less traveled and it has served them well.

Yeesh - Video Premiere on RedEye Chicago / Sophomore Album Out Now on Tiny Engines Posted on January 5th, 2017

Yeesh Video Premiere on RedEye Chicago

Tiny Engines issued Confirmation Bias, the sophomore LP from Chicago, IL's Yeesh in the Summer of 2016.

The video for "End Results" premiered today on RedEye Chicago!


The album premiered in full on The AV Club and the band was recently named one of 'Five Rising Chicago Artists You Need to Hear' by Consequence Of Sound.

Yeesh functions like a less-sardonic Shellac, using chest-rattling bass lines and prickly guitars in the same way, but with a twinge of optimism that makes all that tension rewarding. - The AV Club

The Chicago trio don’t dodge genres, but rather play around with them. They deliver lines with the heart of emo but the scratches of post-punk. On this year’s Confirmation Bias, the group’s sophomore LP, Yeesh explore territory that’s equal parts noisy and introspective. They’re reviving a post-hardcore sound that touches on Japandroids’ energy and Cloud Nothings’ anger... - Consequence Of Sound

Chicago three-piece Yeesh specialize in needling, fussy, and elaborately constructed bits of math-punk. - Stereogum

Confirmation Bias is out now:
TE Store / Bandcamp / Apple Music + iTunes / Spotify / All Outlets
Yeesh - Confirmation Bias
RIYL: Unwound, Krill, Cloud Nothings, Les Savy Fav

Tiny Engines welcomed Chicago three-piece Yeesh to the roster in 2016 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.

Sinai Vessel - Song Premiere on Gold Flake Paint / New Album Out January 27th Posted on January 3rd, 2017

- Sinai Vessel New Album Out January 27th
New Song on Gold Flake Paint
"2017’s first crucial release" - Spin
Brokenlegged, the new LP from Sinai Vessel, is out January 27th on Tiny Engines.

Spin recently called Brokenlegged "2017’s first crucial release."

You can hear the new single "Ramekin" on Gold Flake Paint.
(Soundcloud / Bandcamp)

Listen to "Dogs" on Stereogum and "Looseleaf" on Brooklyn Vegan.

The first two singles are also streaming now on Spotify.

Judging by the shot gracing 2017’s first crucial release, Sinai Vessel’s captivating Brokenlegged, the future’s still in wide open spaces. - Spin

Brokenlegged sounds hard-won and fully-formed, as evidenced by its lead single “Dogs.” Cordes’ dense and transcendental lyricism is on full display - Stereogum

If you miss Transatlanticism-era Death Cab For Cutie, you should probably check this out - Brooklyn Vegan

The album is now available for Pre-Order:
TE Store / Bandcamp / iTunes / All Outlets
Sinai Vessel - Brokenlegged
RIYL: Pedro The Lion, Bright Eyes, Kevin Devine, mewithoutYou

Sinai Vessel began as a one-man project for singer/guitarist Caleb Cordes before ultimately becoming the fully-realized, collaborative group that produced the much-anticipated full length debut, Brokenlegged. The band’s early years culminated in Sinai Vessel’s excellent 2014 EP, Profanity, a record that drew on the outsized drama of mewithoutYou; the canny, observational nuances of Pedro the Lion; the literary smarts of Bright Eyes’ early-00s golden era. A thoughtful yet energized early offering, that early mini-album explored existential doubt, spiritual questioning, and hard-nosed questions about code and community. But Sinai Vessel the band actually formed in the aftermath of Profanity, a record helmed by Cordes and executed with a rotating cast of volunteers. Only after the album saw the light of day did the project turn into a more active, concrete group, filled out by drummer Joshua Herron and bassist Daniel Hernandez, both high school classmates of Cordes’ and -- perhaps essentially - - fellow natives of the space and communities that so define Sinai Vessel. The band began to tour, leaning on and building from that sense of kinship and shared experience, and eventually informing the more collaborative and multifaceted Brokenlegged, an album that remarkably balances Cordes’ continued gift for first-person storytelling with a more markedly communal energy.

Brokenlegged, soon to be released by venerable indie label Tiny Engines, was recorded in its entirety twice. After writing, arranging, and completing the material for the LP all through 2014 and early 2015, the band finally recorded the album with a veteran producer. But ultimately something was still missing and the band decided to begin again, with a clearer sense of purpose. This time the band stayed in North Carolina (a move that seems all too apt considering their gift for rendering notions of home and origin), recording with David Wimbish, who helmed Profanity. The LP was finally finished in September of 2016. Ultimately, Sinai Vessel have made exactly the record they wanted to make, an admirable expression of uncompromised vision and perseverance. That zoomed-in determination is an apt match for the subtle, humanistic ideas explored on the album itself. A more measured, patient album than its predecessor, Brokenlegged allows its eight songs to stretch out and plumb wide fields of human emotion, with complex, challenging results. The record is, by definition, “lived-in”: the songs here find people trying to co-exist with and reconcile the doubts, anxieties, and ironies that have always been a theme in the band’s work. If Profanity found Sinai Vessel glimpsing hard truths through a glass darkly, then Brokenlegged, the band’s remarkable full-length debut, finds the trio wondering what one does next. What do you do when nothing is the same yet everyone refuses to admit things have changed? These are the questions begged by Brokenlegged. - Chad Jewett

TE Store / Bandcamp / Apple Music + iTunes / All Outlets

You can hear the new single "Peach" on Stereogum.
(Soundcloud / Bandcamp)

Listen to the debut single "If You Let It" on NPR and Spotify.

Thelma's music sounds almost otherworldly. Slightly spooky and often dramatic, it mixes the warm, human sensibilities of folk with slightly off-kilter electronic elements.
- NPR

The Brooklyn-based group blend theatrically spectral folk with subtle electronic progressions to dazzling effect, all centered around Jacobs’ elastic but sharp voice. - Stereogum
Thelma - Thelma
RIYL: Joanna Newsom, Kate Bush, St. Vincent, Jeff Buckley
The seven songs of Thelma's debut album are anything but pure, and they make no pretense of representing a natural or spontaneous expressive moment. They are fastidious. And they are gigantic. If anything, the songs exude that most impure, un-sweet, un-angelic motivation- ambition. Within the lyrics too there is a thematic insistence on the writer not wanting to be pure or objectified.

Above all, “Thelma” demonstrates real work; an exacting, intricate, sometimes beautifully sparse production with contrastingly serendipitous vocals. It demands attention to the band as a whole, and to Natasha Jacob's work as a composer, vocalist, and a wildly intense guitarist. - Akiva Zamcheck

- The Spirit Of The Beehive Joins Tiny Engines
New Album out March 2017

- Upcoming Shows with Mannequin Pussy
Tiny Engines is excited to welcome Philadelphia, PA's The Spirit of the Beehive to their roster. The label will issue the band's sophomore LP in March 2017. The album will follow up the band's 2015 EP, YOU ARE ARRIVED (but you've been cheated).
More info coming soon!

Offering a wide sonic palette within every song, pop rock rhythms and sweet melodies supporting dolefully sung detachment pair with atonal, crushingly heavy noise rock crafted perfectly to necessitate repeat listens. The Spirit of the Beehive often alter their songs live to fit the personal experience of the show itself, and such obsession with mood has proven to be one of their most prevalent strengths.

It oscillates between moments of beautiful, unbearable vulnerability and a tarnished ambience that slides towards tightly-packed noise - Stereogum

Mannequin Pussy's sophomore LP, Romantic, out now!

Originally begun as a duo between childhood friends, Marisa Dabice and Thanasi Paul, Mannequin Pussy expanded to a three-piece for their debut album, GP. Following a move to Philadelphia, the band has once again grown in numbers and strength. With the addition of Kaleen Reading on drums and Colins Regisford on bass, Mannequin Pussy are now a quartet for their sophomore full-length, Romantic. Once again a Mannequin Pussy full-length is a perfect example of "all killer, no filler" as Romantic clocks in at less than 20 minutes. And much like GP, Romantic shifts seamlessly back and forth between pop and punk rock. But, the band has refined their songwriting with Romantic. The pop hooks are bigger and sharper. The punk rock numbers are filled with even more fury. Romantic is the sound of a band hitting its stride.

Romantic is less about the gooey stuff and more about everything that surrounds love — the triumphs, the failures and how we transform from the mess of it all. Mostly, it's just a reminder to love someone. - NPR

Mannequin Pussy vacillate between caustic hardcore anthemics and sickly sweet punk-pop riffs at the drop of a dime. ...they make some of the smartest and most economically-constructed punk music to come out in a long while. - Stereogum

This is a love song for letting your guard down before losing your mind when that process inevitably screws you over. Romantic indeed. - NPR

Real love tends to be as indescribable as it is undeniable. On “Emotional High,” Philadelphia’s Mannequin Pussy nail this sensation via fist-pumped, punk-pop fervor and raging DayGlo guitars. ...a post-grunge anthem that cuts out almost too suddenly, leaving us wanting more. - Pitchfork

Buckle up because Mannequin Pussy are about to release one of the best punk albums of the year. - Stereogum

Romantic covers a vast array of punk in short poetic bursts of calculated angst and raw disdain. It's a pop record for the hardcore crowd and a punk record for the indie kids. It's everything you can ask for. True romance. - Post Trash
