The Obsessives
Nick Bairatchnyi and Jackson Mansfield built The Obsessives at fifteen, out of a childhood friendship and a misplaced love for blues-rock. "We wanted to start a band with a "The" because bands like that three years ago were cool, like The Black Keys and The White Stripes," Bairatchnyi remembers while laughing at his ninth-grade naivety. Three years later, the band became fixated on a new form.

The Obsessives released their debut record, Heck No, Nancy in 2015. The album chronicled a series of revelations which center around a musical mentality that volleys between the expressive texture of emo bands like Braid and the bouncy indie of bands like The Pixies and Violent Femmes.

On March 17th, 2017, The Obsessives will release their follow up self-titled album on Lame-O Records, continuing even further along their indie rock inspirations, the band has found an acclivity for pop hooks and vibrant instrumentation that give a nod to their heroes (even referencing a Pixies record on one of their songs), while also fitting alongside the top artists of the modern indie/emo scene (like Modern Baseball, who’s tour they’ll be opening in the spring of 2017).

Hurry began less as a band and more as a man singing songs to himself in his apartment. Up until 2014, Hurry consisted exclusively of that one man -- Matthew Scottoline -- joined by a revolving group of friends for performances, while doing all of the songwriting and recording on his own.

Hurry, which cites influence in Teenage Fanclub, Guided By Voices, The Bats, and Brian Wilson, remained a solo project until the release of their debut LP "Everything/Nothing." Scottoline finally secured bandmates in cousins Rob and Joe Decarolis, who joined him for the recording of the band's first official record. "Everything/Nothing" was released on Hot Green Records in October of 2014, and the band went on to tour with everyone from Yuck to Beach Slang.

Hurry On April 29th, 2016, Hurry released their spectacular, shimmering indie-pop record "Guided Meditation" on Lame-O Records. Dude's got a great twitter @hurryband
