State Faults Releasing Vinyl Versions of Head In The Clouds

state faults head in the clouds

Santa Rosa, CA melodic hardcore outfit State Faults will be releasing their first proper physical release of Head In The Clouds, out now via Tiny Engines, remixed and remastered.

Before State Faults there was Brother Bear. And before Desolate Peaks there was Head In The Clouds, a jarring six song introduction to four best friends from Santa Rosa, CA turning emotional hardcore upside down. Head In The Clouds is what originally caught the attention of Tiny Engines way back in 2010 and rightfully so. These six songs reflect an innocence and passion that was palpable and explosive. Now for the first time, Head In The Clouds will be released on vinyl, remixed and remastered.

Brother Bear changed their name to State Faults in late 2011 and signed with Tiny Engines. Their debut, full-length, Desolate Peaks, was released in May of 2012 on Tiny Engines. State Faults are currently writing for their next release.

Head In The Clouds – Track Listing
1. Untitled
2. Dreamcatcher
3. Last Breath
4. Tigerlily

Featuring former members of Daniel Striped Tiger, Four Eyes and Lost Twin, Sweet John Bloom first took form in the Spring of 2013. The band recorded their debut EP as a trio shortly after but later expanded to a four piece before recording their debut full-length, Weird Prayer. Recorded with Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr, Speedy Ortiz,California X) and Seth Manchester (Battles, Fang Island, The Body) during the Summer and Fall of 2014, Weird Prayer expands and evolves Sweet John Bloom’s brand of catchy punk rock. Clocking in at 15 songs and 35 minutes the band truly runs the gamut between indie rock, power pop and pop/punk. Diverse yet completely unified as a whole, Weird Prayer is a debut LP to be reckoned with and marks Sweet John Bloom as a band you need to know in 2015.

Haybaby Releasing Sleepy Kids This Summer

haybaby up-in-the-air-e1424270949963

Brooklyn indie rockers Haybaby has signed with Tiny Engines and will be releasing their debut album Sleepy Kids this summer.

Somewhere between the art punk of Blonde Redhead and Sonic Youth, the classic indie rock of The Pixies and The Breeders and the attitude of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Haybaby impatiently reside. The band also sprinkles a little bit of sludge and noise pop into the mix and balances their raw energy with deceptive and captivating melodies. There are brilliant structures at play here as Haybaby deftly allows these songs to create their own personalities. The band can be in your face with lyrical realness one moment while the next finds them casually sneaking a beautiful line right past you. But, regardless the approach, direct or indirect, Haybaby are thoughtful and creative with every musical step they take. These songs simply draw you in. They tell you stories. They kick your ass. They make you feel something. Sleepy Kids is the sound of a band probing to find that sweet spot and we’re just happy to listen to the process.

The band’s 2013 Superpresent EP is available for name-your-price download on Bandcamphere.
