Kindling

Western Massachusetts isn’t exactly the first place that comes to mind when one thinks of alternative

music, but the sleepy area boasts a surprising musical lineage as the birthplace of indie rock icons like Dinosaur Jr, to more recent headliners like Speedy Ortiz and Potty Mouth. Easthampton’s Kindling are part of this insular environment that seems to breed a special kind of ambitious individualism: a drive to make bold music that is at once massively appealing and uncompromisingly distinct. Now, with their sophomore full length, Hush, Kindling are poised to continue this tradition and make a particularly loud impression of their own.

Started as the recording project of Stephen Pierce and Gretchen Williams in 2014, Kindling evolved into a full-fledged band through a full-length and a prolific series of EPs that would hone their dreamy lo-fi beginnings into a muscular wall of sound. While much of Kindling’s work could be given the shoegaze tag, the band always hinted at something broader and more immediate amongst the fuzz. Now with Hush the band has achieved a unique blend of crushing guitars and undeniable melodies that is sure to appeal to not just shoegaze fans, but to anyone who has a taste for towering alternative rock.


Sleeping In

Sleeping In is a Burlington VT-based quartet who create their own unique blend of pastoral shoegaze and psych-oriented fuzz rock. After spending the past two years balancing writing, touring, and recording, their second release and debut LP “let you in” is complete. A true labor of love between an extended group of friends, “let you in” arrives heavy yet nonaggressive.

Sleeping In have been touring New England basements and venues for three years and have no intention of slowing down. They’ve played notable festivals such as Waking Windows, and shared stages with formidable acts such as No Joy and Jeff the Brotherhood.

Equally happy in a dingy basement as they are on the stage, Sleeping In are looking to continue and extend their touring capacity in the coming years.


Wolfhand

Wolfhand is a cinematic doom/post-metal band from Burlington, VT.


The Onlys

The Onlys is a Burlington-based dream pop band. Their melodic layers of reverb-soaked guitars and warm synthesizers are held down by a classic post-punk rhythm section.
