Sunflower Bean
Sunflower Bean
"New York is still home to bands as varied as Sunflower Bean, whose music suggests what might have happened if psychedelia had emerged after punk and the Police rather than before" - Jon Pareles of The New York Times

In their first year, Sunflower Bean has made waves coast to coast. Julia Cumming (vox/bass), Nick Kivlen (vox/guitar), and Jacob Faber (drums), draw from a wealth of rugged lo-fi sounds, adapting the heroic charisma of VU psychedelia and Black Sabbath’s dark rock to fit their own generation’s drowsy ethos.
The Pretty Greens
The Pretty Greens
The Pretty Greens channel an unapologetic call to social justice and inequality reform enlisting inspiration from the likes of Brill Building pop, wild and dreamy garage, dark surf, and punk rock. With appreciative nods to the fast and loose clamorous punk-pop of Bratmobile and the garage rock of Nikki and the Corvettes, the band also mixes in the off-kilter and raucous attitude of groups like The Raincoats, and The Slits.

Pretty Greens will release their brand new cassette EP, "Lonely Hearts Club - No Jerks Allowed" in late April on Negative Fun Records (Ghostt Blonde, Positive No, Daddy Issues).
