New England is becoming a hotbed for up and coming pop-punk/emo/indie acts. When I had Grandview's record sent to me by a friend, I knew this had to be heard on the site. One dash Transit, Into It Over It, and Pentimento, Everything Between Paint And A Wall will surely attract many new fans once it's heard. Listen to the record in the replies and grab it on iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp.
I am going to be putting together a massive SXSW showcase round-up so everyone can have a list of what is going on. Please email me your showcase info with the subject line "SXSW Showcase Round-Up" and it will be posted the day before the music portion of SXSW starts.

While a large and ambitious comparison, the midwestern four piece released one of the most criminally unknown and under-appreciated EPs of 2013. Today we're bringing you this four track EP to your attention for you to drool over. Do Your Work is full of that great softer alternative rock we've come to love on the site but still maintains a fresh and upbeat vibe that cannot be denied. Listen to the EP in the replies.
