Eastern Hollows
Eastern Hollows
Eastern Hollows are a Brooklyn band featuring Travis DeVries (vocals, guitar), Martin Glazier (vocals, guitar), Sean Gibbons (guitar), Brian Brennan (bass), and Jeremy Sampson (drums). Fascinated by the lush guitar pop of Ride and the Stone Roses, Eastern Hollows return to these bands' Nuggets-era touchstones to create a haunting blend of timeless jangle-psych, late-1980s Manchester and au courant Brooklyn. A string of East Coast shows laid the groundwork for June's digital release of the EP Days Ahead, recorded this spring with engineer Chris Pace (Smoke and Mirrors) and mastered by Dan Millice (Engine Room Audio). Retreating to a warehouse space in Bushwick, Eastern Hollows emerged with a riveting suite of songs that fuse the rich texture of British shoegaze with the immediacy of classic pop. The band's sound has attracted the attention of rising star producer Chris Coady (Beach House, Smith Westerns). Eastern Hollows will record a full-length album this summer and will continue to play shows in and around Brooklyn in support of the new material. Travis formed Eastern Hollows in the wake of the success of The Turn-ons, whom Spin listed as one of its ``100 Greatest Bands You (Probably) Never Heard.'' The Turn-ons played sold-out shows with The Strokes and Interpol and were touted by R.E.M.'s Peter Buck as his ``favorite new Seattle band'' [Q]. In 2009 Travis's solo project deVries released Death to God on Noise on Noise to widespread acclaim. Legendary producer Kramer (Galaxie 500, Low, Sufjan Stevens) declared the album ``fucking genius,'' The Deli called it ``a fine shoegaze-pop record,'' and Incendiary proclaimed it ``possibly the greatest Manchester album never to have been made in Manchester.''
Dead Stars
Dead Stars
"..Williamsburg, Brooklyn’s Dead Stars, play melodic alt-rock and shoegaze straight from the early-‘90s—think Teenage Fanclub, Pavement, Sonic Youth and Dinosaur, Jr. Which means lots of hefty, hummable melodies and even more fuzz tones.." - FUSE.TV

"..glorious, guitar-driven slacker-rock.." - MTV HIVE

"..Epic swathes of crumpled guitar brilliance.." - MOJOPHENIA

"...Dead Stars have some immediately familiar sounds even on the first listen—Pixies' loud-soft-loud trademark, Built to Spill, Pavement and Hum when they decide to unleash the wall of guitars. Anyone claiming to be a fan of those bands should get this album today..."
