We never make a set list so ~~*anything is pastabowl*~~
ATTENTION: The new Hotel Year F/W 2013 Line is up. This is mostly leftover from our last tour. Most are low in number so grab them before they are out of print. Also, for those you who have trouble finding sizes generally (the less than smalls and the more than XLs and other sizes idk about because we are all boring mediums), let us know so that we can make sure to have some of your size next time around.
We don’t have physical copies of We Are All Alone or It Never Goes Out. We used to just burn blank CDs and draw on them. That got tedious and so we stopped. We are trying to for once be a real band and have physical junk.
Our stores down because we were being lazy. That’ll be back up in January.
And you may have the wrong site but here is the Tiny Engines’ Store. At which they have nothing of ours.
Oh man. Cool ask. To first add some unnecessary preluding, I’m assuming you don’t really have as sharp of a distinction between sounds as I do. Soooo here are the first four bands that I always talk up.
One of my favorite bands we’ve played with and release I’m most excited for next year is Runaway Brother. Bedhead is really really good.
I Can See Mountains is like this really sick pop band that is extremely catchy but also speak in complete nonsense in this really endearing and profound way.
Born Without Bones don’t sound exactly similar to us but they are unapologetically adult-alternative that is pretty sick. Scott and Burton used to play in this band Telfair with this guy Mike D who I once saw call out this dude in the audience while on stage for writing a song about Darfur that I thought was pretty funny.
Huge Face is another pop band that is from around here that really slays.
Besides that Tiny Engines (our label) has a really cool and diverse roster. Personal faves being Everyone Everywhere, State Lines, Save Ends, Best Practices.
Don Giovanni is another really rad label that put out Laura Stevenson, Shellshag, and California X.
Lyrical theme is weird because I usually define our lyrical theme as “talking too much”. But like if you are talking about punkrock-anarchy-youthrevolt-killyerparents type stuff then Soda Bomb had a song last night about hating cops. Last Lights was essentially my biggest lyrical influence. We entertained the idea of touring with lovechild to see who would annoy the most people with between song ranting. And this one song by +hirs+ kind of sums up our political beliefs.
hmmmm. the u in your spelling makes me feel like you may be pleasantly surprised this year… But we’ll be loud soon. We just like, have had the same album out for 3 years so why be loud about nothing? yano? but our album is coming out early next year. we should be announcing it soooon.
I hadn’t plaaannned on it. There is no real place to post it that is central to it. Maybe if we ever rerelease it. In the mean time, forget it exists. B]
it would be too easy to make a DMV joke but I seriously have no idea what you are saying
