I Think Like Midnight is an instrumental rock band formed by longtime devotees of the lost art of the succinct rock instrumental. Begun as a recording project, guitarist/songwriter Andrew Chalfen (The Trolleyvox, The Wishniaks, Gimme) and drummer Dean Clean Sabatino (The Dead Milkmen, Baby Flamehead) were so pleased with the results that they decided to release the material and put together a full band, recruiting bassist Josh Newman (American Altitude, The Silver Ages, Heyward Howkins Band) and keyboardist Joe Genaro (The Dead Milkmen, Butterfly Joe, Low Budgets).

ITLM’s debut “Warm Seclusion Structure” (a term coined by the National Weather Service) was released in December 2014, surprisingly winning the praise of their instrumental heroes Pell Mell. The band has since honed their live sound, focusing on new material with forays into songwriting collaboration. The band recorded their new album over 2016-17 at Miner Street Recordings in Philadelphia with engineer Brian McTear (The War on Drugs, Kurt Vile, Waxahatchee, Sharon Van Etten) with additional recording by Chalfen at Trolleyvox Recording, with mixing by McTear and young upstart engineering genius Brendan Monahan.

«This Land Is Your Mind,» is robust, expansive, deeply groovy, and definitely road-trip worthy. Highlights include the opener “Daychord,” a big sky driving opus with exultant melodic and sparkling nods to popsters like The Chills, the Krautrock-inflected Surf coolness of “Tuned Mass Damper,” and the epic closer “Miner Pocket Draft Gear,” which deftly mines both Television-like meters and pastoral psychedelic space rock. Lovers of the above-mentioned bands, as well as Yo La Tengo, Spoon, Luna, and The Sea and Cake will feel right at home.

ITLM's second album «This Land Is Your Mind» drops Feb. 2, 2018.�

Gringo Motel
Equal parts playful, ambient and ominous, Gringo Motel is an evolving music and art excursion that evokes reality as a picture show. The sound animates unusual love triangles, romantic betrayal, and runaway circus chickens through the desolate resonance of the American Southwest. Gringo Motel's influences include mariachi, spaghetti westerns, surf rock, cantinas, and the circus.
