Tomorrow, Bear Girl's debut 3-song EP, Psychodrama, will release. Today, we are premiering the EP in full, which you can stream in the replies. The EP is releasing via Autumn + Colour Records and it's a progressive indie-rock album in the vein of Minus The Bear and Circa Survive. It's pretty dope and if you like what you hear, you can pre-order it via iTunes.
Tiny Moving Parts are rapidly drawing attention to themselves in the Midwest and Northeast, and we're bringing to you today a couple of remastered song streams from the Minnesota-based emo trio. New versions of "Old Maid" and "Coffee With Tom," which are being released in a 7" single via Skeletal Lightning Records on October 29, can be heard in the replies. Think of slightly mathy Midwestern emo with vocals that bring to mind Jordan Dreyer from La Dispute. You can also check out their tour dates in the replies, and preorder the 7" via the label's webstore.
You may have been wondering what's been going on with Socratic. Well, today we're premiering the band's new song, the painfully honest lullaby entitled "My Girl's First Baby."

Post Drive-Thru Records fallout, Duane Okun, Lou Panico, Vincent Damico, Tom Stratton, and Chris Grzan continue to create, collaborate, and perform. The band will soon be releasing a statement regarding their future plans and projects. In the meantime, check out "My Girl's First Baby" in the replies and let us know what you think.
If you're a fan of early Taking Back Sunday, you may want to take a listen to Staten Island's Backslashes and Bad Ideas.
