Get ready to be swept away by the long-awaited return of Bats & Mice with their LP "P.S. Seriously" dropping on May 31, 2024, courtesy of Lovitt Records. Their blend of angular indie/emo and hardcore roots with dark melodies promises an energetic drive that harkens back to bands like Pinback, Fugazi, Sparta and Denali.

Prepare to be enchanted by the dreamy sounds of Broken Head as they unveil their debut LP "Morning Ends" on May 31, 2024, under Sunday Drive Records. Drawing inspiration from '90s alternative rock and shoegaze, their album offers intricate production and captivating melodies that will transport you.

Embrace the ambitious musical journey of Brooklyn shoegazers DIIV with their fourth album, "Frog in Boiling Water," produced by Chris Coady. This album represents a deeper exploration of dream-pop and fuzzed out space-rock, promising a lyrical and musical depth that will resonate with listeners.

Melodic pop punk rockers Modern Shakes have released their debut full-length album, "A Bolt From The Blue." Influenced by bands like Hot Water Music and Banner Pilot, their emotionally charged melodic punk rock promises heartfelt lyrics woven into infectious anthemic tracks that will captivate fans of the genre.
