It’s safe to say there's a whole lot of '80s love happening in music right now. With
so many bands leaning heavily on the New Order and Siouxsie and the Banshees
playbook, it’s refreshing to hear music that references that most popular of decades
without being obvious. Shaun Hettinger’s new project Memoryy (formerly Kitten
Berry Crunch) does this very well. Much like Fischerspooner, Scissor Sisters, and
Empire of the Sun before them, Memoryy takes the slick futurism of early-'80s
synth, tosses in a bit of disco funk, a touch of afro-pop, and creates a familiar sound
that somehow manages to feel current. Their debut album drops in June, featuring
the mix-work of James Benjamin (Purity Ring) and Trent Gill (Young Magic).

- Laura Wasson,
Don’t let the name Lazyeyes fool you - this young project is keenly aware of its contemporary music landscape. Of course it doesn’t hurt to be immersed in the notoriously fertile Brooklyn DIY scene where, committing to the band in the summer of 2012, Lazyeyes has grown tremendously in a little over six months. Playing shows around town with the likes of Oberhofer, Total Slacker, and Generationals, the project is beginning to make waves at home and abroad.

The Deli Magazine just named the group the “Best Psych/Shoegaze band in New York” for 2012 saying the album "brings to mind classic mid-90's dreampop" while Mixtape Maestro proclaimed "Lazyeyes make a promising early bid at joining the top ranks of 2013 blogosphere."
