Steep Leans
Steep Leans
"Steep Leans is the name Boston multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Gray Somers gives his murky but melodic pop.

Assorted Steep Leans recording problems has caused Somers some steep headaches over the last few years he's finally about to release his debut album Grips on Heat.

Released on Wavves' Ghost Ramp label, the original recordings of Grips on Heat was done with Jonny Schenke from the band Eaters and producer of Parquet Courts' Light Up Gold, but added problems resulted in a more DIY recording style in a practice space outside Boston.

The important thing is that the record is out and its mix of moody surf-rock and lo-fi is a winner." - Noisey
Rick Rude
Rick Rude
Out of speakers came noise and out of noise came RICK RUDE. A four-membered creature whose tattered robe, four-string guitar, and sand-filled shoes are surrounded by a haze of sweet smoke and empty beer cans, thrashes about with a charismatic enthusiasm matched only by its lethargic demeanor, speaking fluently in the cryptic languages of dreams, love, and ennui. It inhabits a dark cave on the mountainside of truth, carefully furnished with dismantled electronics, books on meditation, and warped records of Guided By Voices, Built to Spill, and Cheap Trick. A nocturnal creature, Rick Rude feasts on mystical fungi, boredom, mushy guitar riffs, and the delicacy of the human soul.
The Dead Trains
The Dead Trains
The Dead Trains are a three-piece rock 'n' roll band based in Boston, MA. The trio—which consists of twenty-somethings Matt Axten (guitar/voice), Natan Keyes (bass) and Rose Heydt (drums)—formed a year ago, when Axten and Keyes, who were high-school friends, reconnected by happenstance and crossed paths with Heydt. Their initial idea was simply to play electric blues, but as they began writing songs their shared love of delta blues, early rock 'n' roll, and punk bands like Gun Club, The Gories, and Big Black resulted in a sound that uniquely combines these disparate influences. After a series of successful gigs in and around Boston (TT the Bear's Place, Church, the Harvard Advocate, The Plough & Stars, Precinct, various house shows, etc.), the group self-recorded and -released their debut EP, "Break 'Em On Down," this past December. They are touring the South-East in July.
Idle Pilot
Idle Pilot
Idle Pilot is a rock band out of Lowell, MA. Following a demo and EP in 2013, they released their first full length album, titled 'Mondegreen,' under their old name 'currents'. Due to forces outside their control the band was forced to change their name. They have signed on with Boston label Ocelot Records for the re-release of 'Mondegreen' under their new name and are continuously looking forward.
