It’s safe to say there's a whole lot of '80s love happening in music right now. With
so many bands leaning heavily on the New Order and Siouxsie and the Banshees
playbook, it’s refreshing to hear music that references that most popular of decades
without being obvious. Shaun Hettinger’s new project Memoryy (formerly Kitten
Berry Crunch) does this very well. Much like Fischerspooner, Scissor Sisters, and
Empire of the Sun before them, Memoryy takes the slick futurism of early-'80s
synth, tosses in a bit of disco funk, a touch of afro-pop, and creates a familiar sound
that somehow manages to feel current. Their debut album drops in June, featuring
the mix-work of James Benjamin (Purity Ring) and Trent Gill (Young Magic).

- Laura Wasson,
Lazyeyes is a three-piece from Brooklyn, New York formed in the summer of 2012 by guitarist and vocalist Jason Abrishami (The Twees), Paul Volpe (Triple Cobra) on bass, and Jeremy Sampson (Eastern Hollows) on drums. The band self-released their sophomore EP, 'New Year' in January 2015, which was quickly picked up and reissued by Burger Records cassette imprint, Wiener Records.
Lazyeyes was a featured artist in the November 2014 issue of NME Magazine and, in December, Stereogum described their sound as "a muscular, riff-happy brand of guitar-based dream-pop," going on to proclaim, "their songs burst with angular hooks and polished melodies." Their single, "Adaptation" also received high praise from Interview Magazine, who wrote, "'Adaptation's" fast-paced, garage-tinged guitar riff draws the listener in, propelling you through chorus and verse. It is both urgent and reassuringly familiar."
