CodyCody isn't an album that changed everything for Joyce Manor, but Joyce Manor had to change a bit to make their album Cody. Since the release of their 2014 Epitaph debut Never Hungover Again, guitarist and singer Barry Johnson has taught himself the meditation techniques championed by the Beatles and director David Lynch, and he found he was suddenly wide open. Before, songs were labor; now they were revelations, appearing almost fully formed in his head before he had time to even catch them on a voicemail to himself.
For Cody, the band camped out in the studio for two months with producer Rob Schnapf, credited on classics by Elliott Smith, Guided By Voices, Saves The Day and Rancid, all in the Joyce Manor record collections, of course. With Schnapf's help, they'd explore deeper arrangements, new pre-production techniques, and different ways of working both together and with someone else. Johnson says, "It was the first time we really used the studio to our advantage. I felt like I could get a better grasp on what we could do. We always recorded like a punk band-go in and lay 'em down! Just get good takes! And this time we tried a lot more."
For Cody, they added new drummer Jeff Enzor to the band alongside bassist Matt Ebert and guitarist Chase Knobbe. With Rob Schnapf's able help as a de facto fifth member of the band, Joyce Manor found itself bristling with inspiration. Now more than ever, says Johnson, he felt he could trust himself and his bandmates to take the risks to make the music they wanted to make. The result is a record that dares to be humble, intimate and unapologetically human.1. Fake I.D.

We Cool? (Awaiting Repress)In true Jeff Rosenstock fashion, singer/songwriter/all around great guy Jeff Rosenstock shocked the globe today as he finally unleashed details surrounding his highly anticipated new solo album, We Cool?. The LP comes out through SideOneDummy Record...
We Cool? serves as a much-needed alternative to the over-bloated rock star faux-indie bullshit that seems to be overwhelming today's music scene. Mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley (Tony Molina, Joyce Manor, Deafheaven), this album is a welcome change from Jeff's standard method of making a record.
"The difference between recording in an apartment with a small amount of cheap gear that is constantly breaking vs. an actual studio with cool things to use and a really talented person running everything is immeasurable," Jeff explains.

Anxiety AnsweringSophomore album from the Tampa, FL post-rock quartet.
Recorded with producer Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Joyce Manor) at The Atomic Garden studios in Palo Alto, CA, Anxiety Answering is a natural
progression and impressive second album. It features ten tracks that are both lush and atmospheric while maintaining an intensely abrasive tone, which
Shirley captured beautifully on analog in a live setting in the studio. "We went with a more organic approach with writing and recording this record,"
explains JP Marra. "We were really into the idea of recording live to tape because we wanted it to translate to a more honest representation of our band."1. White Noise

Throw Me In The RiverThrow Me in the River, the soon to be released third LP from
Melbourne, Australia's The Smith Street Band is multidimensional. Full
of their trademark earnest storytelling, the album is a virtual passport
to their global rise, with songs written while on tour in Winnipeg, Salt
Lake City, Calgary, London, New York, and North Melbourne. Less
than a year earlier, the band released a career defying 5-track EP
entitled Don't Fuck With Our Dreams. The single was added to radio
and launched with a 10-date Australian headline tour supported by
US acts Joyce Manor and Cheap Girls. The band graced magazine
covers, sold-out venues across Australia, signed international recording
deals and toured the UK, Europe, and the USA, including a
40-date tour with Frank Turner.1. Something I Can Hold In My Hands

Hardcore FriendsEric Slick and Dom Angelella are infinitely busy-Slick plays drums in Dr. Dog and Angelella writes songs for DRGN KING-but they finally orchestrated the time, nearly a decade into the bands life, to record their debut full-length album, Hardcore Friends. Recorded in five days by Joe Reinhart (Hop Along, Joyce Manor) and Kyle Pulley at The Headroom Studios in Philadelphia, Hardcore Friends spans the last ten years of their friendship. Hardcore Friends features unshakeable guitars and genuine lyrics that invoke the likes of Stephen Malkmus and Archers of Loaf. Lithuania is just as capable of writing a dawdling and quiet song, "Coronation Day," showing off their softer side with acoustic guitars, synthesizers, and Angelella's mollifying vocals. The album closer "Hardcore Friends," features guest vocals from friends Frances Quinlan (Hop Along) and Rachel Browne (Field Mouse).$16.99Vinyl LP - Sealed Buy Now
Year Of The SnakeLos Angeles' SILVER SNAKES are back with their second full length, "Year of the Snake," the follow-up to their 2011 critically acclaimed debut, "Pictures
of a Floating World." "Year of the Snake," which was named one of Alternative Press' "Most Anticipated Albums of 2013," sees the band's vocalist,
guitarist and principle songwriter, Alex Estrada, whose "day job" is recording bands including Nails, TouchÉ Amore and Joyce Manor, stepping behind the
board to produce his own band. Roger Camaro, of No Motive, who co-produced "Pictures," worked with Estrada recording drums and basic tracks for the
record. After the recording process in LA, the tracks were sent to Salad Days Studios, in Baltimore, to be mixed by Brian McTernan, whose resume'
includes acts influential to SILVER SNAKES, such as, Cave In, Engine Down, Thrice, and Circa Survive. The resulting eleven songs see SILVER
SNAKES going in a darker direction than they had visited on "Pictures," and finds their dynamic range expanding; the band has grown louder and more
dissonant on tracks like "No Color," while getting quieter and more desolate on tracks like "Lock."1. Four Crows

Big WorldListening to San Francisco East Bay s Happy Diving it s hard to believe that they ve only been together since 2013. A year ago, friends Matt Berry, Samuelito Cruz, Mikey Rivera, and Matt Yankovitz decided to form a band after previous projects fell apart. Since then they ve released a self-titled EP in late 2013 that fans of Tony Molina, Connecticut s Ovlov and early Weezer can appreciate. Their debut full-length, Big World, out worldwide on October 21, 2014, was recorded over a whirlwind two days at The Atomic Garden in East Palo, CA, with the help of producer Jack Shirley (Deafhaven, Joyce Manor, Whirr). Big World sees the band channeling the energy first displayed on their Self-Titled EP, as well as their deafening and vivacious live shows, into ten concise, sludgy pop songs. We recommend you listen to this album while road tripping across the country, but if you don t have the time to pack up your cares and get away, Big World fits perfectly into a 30 minute lunch break.1.
