It Looks Sad.: 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.
See Through Dresses: See Through Dresses released their debut self-titled LP in November of 2013. Principal songwriters Mathew Carroll and Sara Bertuldo, along with drummer Nate Van Fleet and bassist Josh French, 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. At their most hopeful, they remind us of the simplicity of longing and the eagerness that accompanies an expectation for love in a loveless culture. At their most honest, See Through Dresses portray a dull terror born of idleness, sickness, and failure. The result is a well-rounded catalogue that disillusions as it comforts and soothes as it burns by injecting the familiarity of music-gone-by with lyrics about regrettable psychologies - it's a total bummer that's still fun to listen to. See Through Dresses will tour the US in the summer of 2014 and hope to see you out there.
The Woodgrains: The Woodgrains are a three-piece band that thrives on distinct three-part harmonies and sounds reminiscent of the goldener days: psychedelic, Southern-tinged, Zep-heavy rock and roll a nostalgia-tinged brand of lysergic folk-rock a band that sounds like a band, not a songwriter, not a recording project.
