Froth
Froth
Formed in 2013 in Los Angeles, Froth first garnered attention with their debut LP, 'Patterns.' Originally intended as a small-run cassette release, the album quickly became an underground sensation in the Southern California music scene, catapulting the band to local fame and prompting a vinyl re-release in 2014.

2015 saw the release of the band's sophomore album, 'Bleak.' A more dynamic, adventurous effort, the record matches lush shoegaze soundscapes with driving krautrock beats. Froth toured extensively across the U.S. and Europe in support of the album, opening for acts such as The Drums, Tamaryn, Pond and Craft Spells.

After signing with Wichita Records in 2016, Froth is set to share their third album, 'Outside (briefly),' on February 10, 2017. This time around, the band has dialed back the noise, revealing delicately beautiful melodies, intricately arranged instrumentals and some of their most experimental songwriting to date.
Wildhoney
Wildhoney
Perhaps it's because I've been listening to them near non-stop for so long now that it's all just blurred together, but at the time of my writing this, I can't seem to recall the moment I was first turned on to Baltimore's Wildhoney. Fortunately, everything else about them is immensely memorable. Effortlessly combining wall-of-sound power with delicate passages and gorgeous vocal melodies, Wildhoney simply have a wonderful knack for balancing blasts of distortion and dense textures with beautiful pop tunes and chiming guitar work. So it's with a great deal of elation that I am announcing that we'll be releasing a new EP for the band later this year!

The EP — which the band is currently recording right now — will serve as the follow-up to their debut full length album, Sleep Through It, released earlier this year through Deranged and Forward! Records along with 2014's Photobooth Records effort Seventeen Forever (which is where we initially got hooked on them, and is a great place to start if you've never listened to them before). When pressed to describe the direction of the new material, guitarist Joe Trainor simply states,"the [Topshelf] EP we are working on now is very uptempo and noisy" — which is fucking fine.

The group formed in late 2011, aiming to write pop songs with the energy and malcontent of hardcore punk, but without its entrenched masculinity — drawing influences from '60s girl groups, '80s post punk, indie pop, and shoegaze. The five-piece has since become one of the loudest — and sweetest — bands in its hometown of Baltimore.
Soft Fangs
Soft Fangs is the nom de plume of one John Lutkevich. His former nom, The Devil And A Penny, had a couple EPs and an album's worth of distant, drowsy but graceful rain-folk tunes with songtitles like Make Myself Scarce and Sun Gets Cut. They seemed not unlike the earliest Shins stripped of anything resembling masked ambition and left with mostly half-trickled guitars, tossed-off drum shuffles and Lutkevich's off in the corner of the room vocals.
