Annabel - Song Premiere on Stereogum / New LP Coming Soon on Tiny Engines / Upcoming Shows

• Having It All LP out May 2015 on Tiny Engines 
• RIYL: Nada Surf, The Sidekicks, Japandroids, Tokyo Police Club, Death Cab For Cutie


Tiny Engines recently announced the release of Having It All, the third full-length from Kent, Ohio's Annabel. The new album was produced by Evan Weiss of Into It. Over It.. Tiny Engines will release the record in May of 2015. You can sign up to be notified when pre-orders go live here! Check out the video teaser for the album here.

You can now hear the first single from Having It All. "Everything" is premering exclusively on Stereogum.

The record follows up numerous releases from the band on the Count Your Lucky Stars label. Also, Annabel previously released their 2010 EP, Here We Are Tomorrow, on Tiny Engines. You can currently stream the entire Annabel discography on Bandcamp. Also, check out an in-depth interview with Annabel from the Summer of 2014 on Half Cloth.

On appearances alone, Akron, Ohio’s Annabel could be any modest midwestern rock band—scrawny, bespectacled, with grins as permanent as their tattoos. A similar innocence might be perceived in their songs, in guitars that jingle and a bass that romps puppy-like, in vocals that compete with the music like a little brother for attention. But subsequent listens will reveal Annabel to be a band whose elements tangle into something complex and complete and . Indeed, Having It All feels orchestral at times, with guitars that intertwine and sometimes collapse into harmonic hums. The sticky chords on “The Fortunate Ones,” for example, are wrenched around by a stubborn drumbeat until a quiet chorus, during which singer Ben Hendricks warbles beneath the thrumming rhythm and whispering organ; toward the end, though, that quiet chorus rises into a roar during which melody burns white hot and the instruments, indistinguishable, melt into a pummeling progression. At no point does this complexity weigh the album down; instead, Annabel’s third full-length (and first with Tiny Engines since 2010’s Here We Are Tomorrow) feels joyful. The toms on “The Importance of Disappointment” bob with a rubber bounce, skip beneath guitars that spiral and spin like melodic mandalas. Even songs like the distant “Days In Between” and “How To: A Self-Help Guide,” whose acoustic strokes chop through spectral wisps, don’t sound like sad songs; instead, they serve as breathers, counterbalance the songs that seem breathless. This busyness doesn’t make Annabel any less modest; their music still possesses some pastoral, midwestern appeal. It’s just that their seeming simplicity, however sweet, may be more plentiful than it appears.

The band has a few local shows coming up. Info listed below. More Spring/Summer tour dates coming soon!

Some bands spend years searching for their true sound as they strain under the weight of influences, trends or expectations. Other bands just sound naturally comfortable in their own skin. Walleater is one of those bands. Throw whatever tag you want upon the young UK band, Walleater occupies their own space and they do so with a remarkably clear artistic vision. The band has a penchant for melody and suspense, a certain flare for the dramatic build and release. However, this never comes at the expense of the song. Nothing is contrived or forced, every note serves a purpose and every piece of the puzzle fits. And that simplicity, that organic quality, that is where Walleater's sound begins and ends.

1. Give In To Me
2. Just A Boy
3. Glow
4. What Do You Know?

These six songs reflect an innocence and passion that was palpable and explosive. Now for the first time, Head In The Clouds will be released on vinyl, remixed and remastered, on March 17, 2015.

Brother Bear changed their name to State Faults in late 2011 and signed with Tiny Engines. Their debut, full-length, Desolate Peaks, was released in May of 2012 on Tiny Engines.

Featuring former members of Daniel Striped Tiger, Four Eyes and Lost Twin, Sweet John Bloom first took form in the Spring of 2013. The band recorded their debut EP as a trio shortly after but later expanded to a four piece before recording their debut full-length, Weird Prayer. Recorded with Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr, Speedy Ortiz, California X) and Seth Manchester (Battles, Fang Island, The Body) during the Summer and Fall of 2014, Weird Prayer expands and evolves Sweet John Bloom's brand of catchy punk rock. Clocking in at 15 songs and 35 minutes the band truly runs the gamut between indie rock, power pop and pop/punk. Diverse yet completely unified as a whole, Weird Prayer is a debut LP to be reckoned with and marks Sweet John Bloom as a band you need to know in 2015.
