BOYTOY
BOYTOY
BOYTOY is a summer-time strut down a New York City sidewalk as the sun slips behind the horizon where cement meets the shore and waves crash on pavement. Their sound ebbs and flows between natural harmony and destruction—embodying the bright grooves of the 1960’s with heavy guitar riffs snatched from the Lower East Side 1970’s.



Their forthcoming sophomore LP “Night Leaf” was born on a ranch in Topanga Canyon surrounded by three dogs, two pigs, nostalgic tones of warm tube amps and analog tape machines, and a slew of old trucks, RV’s, and surfboards. With a fresh collection of genuine tunes and contagious rhythms, founding members Saara Untracht-Oakner (vocals, guitar) and Glenn Michael Van Dyke (vocals, guitar), were joined by Chase Noelle (drums, formerly of Thelma and The Sleaze) and Lena Simon (bass, formerly of La Luz) to record at producer Kyle Mullarky’s renowned Pump House Studio. Mullarky is well-known for his work producing and recording California bands including The Growlers and Allah-Las.



Since the release of BOYTOY’s first self-titled EP in 2014 and their debut full length in 2015 (both on Papercup Music for vinyl and digital and Burger Records for cassette), the band has released several 7”s with various labels including Little Dickman, Bob Records, and Swiss label Sacred Hood Records. They’ve spent the last two years touring extensively across the US, Canada, Puerto Rico and Europe. “Night Leaf” is due out Spring 2018 in the US and U.K./EU, when BOYTOY will head back out on the road to spread catchy grooves coast to coast and across the ocean.
Honduras
Honduras
Friends since childhood, Patrick Phillips (vocals/guitar) and Tyson Moore (lead guitar) found each other again in a Bushwick basement where they began writing much of what would become Honduras' early material. Inspired by late 70’s punk, but mixing in aspects of garage and indie that followed, Honduras played Brooklyn’s DIY venue scene tirelessly and garnered a reputation for amazing live performances, with comparisons to bands like Sex Pistols and Buzzcocks. After bringing in Josh Wehle to play drums they added a new bass player in Paul Lizarraga (the Denzels) to round out the band’s signature polished edge. Their more recent writing has included elements of krautrock and psych to their already energetic tracks for an intellectually developed and interesting sound. While picking up additional attention from serious tastemakers like Rolling Stone, NME, Noisey, Impose, and Nylon along the way, the group has shared stages like Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg with notable acts like Blur, Metz, Fidlar, Twin Peaks, Drowners and the Kaiser Chiefs. The first single from their upcoming debut LP, Paralyzed, is currently in regular rotation on Sirius Radio XMU and the band was just featured in NME's On The Radar section. On stage the formula continues, where four good friends exhibit a savvy devil-may-care tightness. Their engaging stage presence is both apropos to their influences and forever exciting to witness in a young and surging project. Their upcoming debut LP is called Rituals, and will be released in Early 2016.
Native Sun
Native Sun
Native Sun is a four-piece rock n roll band from Brooklyn. Loud and urgent, their music breeds a beautiful chaos evocative of each member's experiences. Frontman Danny Gomez first met lead guitarist Jake Pflum while growing up in Florida. After years without contact they reconnected by chance on a random evening in the city, rekindling their friendship over their mutual obsession for The Rolling Stones and Velvet Underground. They immediately forced their best friend Alexis Castro to play drums. Bassist Mo Martinez uprooted to the city from Monterrey, Mexico. In hopes of playing music he reached out to Danny through mutual friends and naturally completed the band's lineup.
