Balance and Composure
Balance and Composure
According to Balance and Composure, they can be loud, quiet and everything in between. A pretty apt description in a nutshell. Once you get down to an intricate school of thought, the lyricism of singer/guitarists Jonathan Simmons and Andrew Slaymaker show things in a different light. Having all met in the Philadelphia suburb of Doylestown, PA through mutual projects during their high school years, Balance and Composure decided to start what they called a "real band" once former projects dissolved. Once completing the formation of the band, Balance and Composure hit the ground running and have yet to look back.

A sonic assault melding influences such as Sunny Day Real Estate, Neutral Milk Hotel and Nirvana, their upcoming full length "Separation" adheres to the band's namesake. A cohesive listen of anthemic and melodic guitar blitzes with poignant lyricism, rhythmic thrusts and an abrasive pop knack in its overall deliverance, "Separation" churns in a fortified enclave of gutiar fuzz and impending rhythms that drive heavily. Balance and Composure may wear their love for early 90's underground alt rock on their sleeves, but they are in no way merely a "throwback" band as much as they are an outfit who respects their influences, and pushes them forward into brash sonic terrortory with the us vs. the world ethos of geniune punk rock.

After self releasing their first EP "I Just Want To Be Pure" in 2008, followed by their "Only Boundaries" EP and split EP with Tigers Jaw both on No Sleep Records, Balance and Composure are now on the verge of releasing their debut full length "Separation" out May 10th, 2011 on No Sleep Records.
From Indian Lakes
From Indian Lakes
"From Indian Lakes could easily be handpicked as one of the best alternative rock bands most people have never heard of. The California quintet blend intelligent and touching lyrics with entrancing rock to create a musical organism that sounds like Brand New's poetic yet daring younger brother." - Blare Magazine

"...one of the better unknown efforts of 2009...if you are akin to tapestries of sonic guitars, vocals with impressive range, and a very personal approach filled with echoed pianos and acoustics, then "The Man With Wooden Legs" will feel like a worthy journey that will take you where few have traveled, and even less have succeeded in. Score: 4.5/5"- BringOneMixedReviews

"This album overall sounds beautiful, and will be something new for those of you who enjoy Enter Shikari and Circa Survive." -The Interlude
Queen Of Jeans
Queen of Jeans is a female-fronted quartet from South Philadelphia. With 60's girl group-influenced vocal harmonies and textured melodic pop instrumentation, the Queens seamlessly blend the best of denimcore and crockpot pop. They're also probably your mom's favorite band, but they don't like to make a big deal out of it.
