Young Prisms
Young Prisms
Young Prisms is a San Francisco psychedelic/garage/beach-pop band, influenced by the California coast, Charlton Heston, and late night spiritual pow wows. They recorded their self-titled EP in the living room of their apartment in the first half of 2009. On this first spaced-out EP, the band strands its listeners in the solitude of a beach fireworks display with nothing but lights for the tongue and acid for the ears--arresting, colors everywhere. Made up of Matthew Allen, Giovanni Betteo, Jason Hendardy, Stefanie Hodapp, and Jordan Silbert, Young Prisms has been prying minds open with their stellar sounds for less than a year since Silbert made the transition from Detroit to San Francisco The Prisms have released two 12″, one with Brooklyn-based label Mexican Summer and the other with Oakland-based label South Paw Records. Look for 2010 to be a breakout year for these Bay Area rockers.
MAGIC TRICK (Tim Cohen solo)
MAGIC TRICK (Tim Cohen solo)
Magic Trick is Tim Cohen (Fresh & Onlys, Black Fiction), Noelle Cahill, Alicia Vanden Heuvel (#poundsign#, Still Flyin), and James Kim (Kelley Stoltz Band, Court & Spark).

Empty Cellar Records is proud to announce the latest full-length album by Tim Cohen, The Glad Birth of Love. This is Tim Cohen's fourth album following his 2009 debut, The Two Sides of Tim Cohen (Empty Cellar), and two full-lengths (Laugh Tracks / Tim Cohen's Magic Trick) and one EP (Bad Blood) on New York's Captured Tracks label. Featuring guest appearances by John Dwyer (Thee Oh Sees), Grace Cooper (The Sandwitches), Diego Gonzalez (The Dry Spells, Citay), and several other San Francisco musicians, The Glad Birth of Love is the first Tim Cohen album to not directly bear his name, but the name of his band, Magic Trick. Recorded in a tower at Tim Cohen's home this album marks a departure from his signature radio-ready song craft. The Glad Birth of Love is a 45 minute album composed of four epic long-form compositions saturated with Tim's uncanny pop sensibilities and vivid lyrical imagery. Transitioning seamlessly from sparse acoustic blues, to dense bass & oud ragas, to layered of lush vocal harmonies this album is a culmination of Tim's work to date.

"As a lyricist, Fresh & Onlys frontman Tim Cohen clearly evokes the early era of rock'n'roll he also explores in his music. His chord changes are simple without being rudimentary, his lyrics are romantic without being cheesy, and-- perhaps most notably-- his output is outrageously prolific without skirting inconsistency." --Pitchfork
Crinkles
Crinkles
Crinkles was born in the chilly basements of house shows and DIY venues of Burlington, VT. In 2009 the young five-piece packed up shop and relocated to the fortuitous streets of Brooklyn where they founded their own imprint HEAVYPET and released a string of limited pressings and homemade CD-Rs.

Amassing nearly three years worth of recordings, Crinkles will release its debut long-player Loss Leader this spring. The record was not so much conceived as it was accumulated, expanding on sounds found on cassette and 1/4" reel-to-reel tapes, remixes and early demos of now-revitalized tracks. The end result is a collection of songs varying both in fidelity and place, intimately recorded mid-tempo pop songs earnestly selected from an array of past influences and experiences.
