~~~ Droopies ~~~

3 piece psych rock

~~~ Parlor Walls ~~~
Parlor Walls is a Brooklyn-based trio led by Alyse Lamb (EULA), Chris Mulligan (Shark?, Sodium Beast) and multi-instrumentalist Jason Shelton. Their sound unpredictably switches between blistering no wave and dreamy hellscapes. The trio's latest release, «EXO», is out May 3 on Northern Spy Records.

"'EXO' is a punch to the face. Imagine steam engines colliding on Mars where the air is thin but somehow inhabitable. Shedding their once post-punk-meets-free-jazz exoskeleton for a more refined art rock, EXO spins a claustrophobic mayhem into a sinewy four song salvo." -Andrya Ambro (Talk Normal, Gold Dime)

~~~ Sun Hat ~~~

Philly dream-grungers, Sun Hat, was started by Boston and New York scene vets Daniel Harris Levine (AKHBAR, 3dCosby), Anthony Aquilino (MiniBoone, Gunfight, Quiet Loudly), and Abram Taber (A Bit Much, School for Robots, Sinbusters) as a bedroom recording project. Levine, Aquilino and Taber would swap demos and gather weekly at Levine’s house to play each other’s songs to a drum machine. Aquilino’s upstairs neighbor Evan Dormont (Sic Bacchus) joined on drums in January 2014, and played drums on most of Pet Shapes. Since then Sun Hat has played basements and stages around Philly including Johnny Brenda’s, Boot and Saddle, and the First Unitarian Church. They have shared bills with Mirah, Laser Background, Mock Suns, The Morelings, Woven In, Callowhill, and more. Pet Shapes was recorded in borrowed practice spaces and rooms in members’ houses on a portable recording setup, with Levine engineering and mixing the sessions. Drew St. Aubin (Miniboone, Lazyeyes) played additional drums, as well. Likewise, Pet Shapes sounds like a patchwork of dusty psychedelia and teenage alterna-gunk bound by the cotton-mouthed languor and sleepy drag of an overlong summer. Album opener “H8 Myself and I Want a Dog” borrows its opening drum fill and crunchy, anxious plod from Slanted and Enchanted-era Pavement, while “Fauxdega” melds a twinkling Beach House dreamscape with Helium’s rough-hewn buzz and delivers its hook in pristine, echoing harmony. “Any Better” is a surfy romp that showcases Taber’s fuzzed out bass and bratty beach boy snarl. “Chemicals” channels the prickling urgency of early Deerhunter and post-Pedro the Lion, David Bazan. Sun Hat are currently working on their second LP with newfound member, Greg Foran (Lightninging, Static Mountain) handling drum duties, and will be playing East Coast shows in support of Pet Shapes in the coming months.

~~~ Toyz ~~~
TOYZ is a sound based out of New Haven, CT/Philadelphia, PA. Justin Courtney Roberts (member of New Havens Fake Babies) started TOYZ out of necessity. Still trying to work out a line-up the group consists of Justin and guitarist Jason Sirianni. The sound is very much pop in the rawest is form. Its real.
