Stolen Jars
Stolen Jars
Each track on glint, Stolen Jars' visual EP, starts with an impossibly small sound – a keyboard briefly glimmering in warm light, a finger sliding down the neck of a guitar, a chord strummed with just enough space in between the strings that each note sounds alone. Cody Fitzgerald, the group's songwriter and center of gravity, started writing as Stolen Jars in 2011, and in its evolution his small and intricate introductions have grown into full, powerful statements. Following the success of 2015's sophomore LP Kept – NPR's Bob Boilen named Stolen Jars as one of his top ten bands to watch at CMJ, the Deli Magazine featured the band on the cover of its CMJ issue, Stereogum and Consequence of Sound premiered the album's singles, and the Village Voice ran a feature on the the band's songwriting practice – glint finds beauty in brief moments of reflection, elongating them with deft chamber orchestration, sorrowfully penned lyrics, and vocal performances from Fitzgerald and collaborator Molly Grund that guide each track from tension to reconciliation and back again. A constellation of musicians orbits the band – vocalist Molly Grund, drummer Matt Marsico, guitarists Connor McGuigan and Peter Enriquez, and keyboard players Grant Meyer and Max Finkelstein make contributions to Stolen Jars and push the band's energy to its outer edges during live shows.
Oshwa
Oshwa are a Chicago-based art pop foursome keen on big melodies, polyrhythm, and intricate guitar work. Both "comfortingly familiar and wildly, bizarrely inventive" (Chicago Singles Club), Oshwa puts a tastefully surprising twist on pop sensibility, combining innovation and tradition in a seamless, charming menagerie.
Fraternal Twin
Fraternal Twin
For the past several years, Tom Christie has been arranging an ever-twisting and shifting song of his own. Beginning in New York's Hudson Valley where he grew up, Tom fleshed out the soft and intricate songs that became the first Fraternal Twin album 'Skin Gets Hot.'

As it turns out, 'Homeworlding' is an impressively natural progression from their debut. Fleetwood Mac-indebted pop songs, Tom Verlaine-esque guitar leads, ambient composition and watery folk songs quickly pass by in a way that demands repeat listens in order to fully comprehend the depth of the lyrics and songwriting.
Long Beard
Disciplined and focused, Sleepwalker is the record you play when twilight is upon you, when night has set and you find yourself alone and witness to the dramatic and profound beauty of a simple phenomenon like the end of a day or the soft glow of an electric bulb.
