Swanky Tiger
Swanky Tiger
Swanky Tiger is a Brooklyn based rock n' roll band that delivers "melodic punk and hard rock anthems that combine infectious pop hooks with aggressive, buzz - saw sounding electric guitars."

Wake The Sun
Wake The Sun
Newly-formed in the Spring of 2014, and hailing from the northern shores of Long Island, New York, is the five-piece band WAKE THE SUN. Vocalist and rhythm guitarist Dillon Mealey, bassist Jeff Alvarado, drummer Jon Brick, keyboardist John Creighton, and lead guitarist and background vocalist Tom Perrotta are collectively influenced by acid-washed blues-driven rock of the 1970's (Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix) and more mainstream rock of today (The Black Keys, Cage the Elephant). Their debut self-titled EP is slated for release March 24, 2015.
The Bushwick Hotel
The Bushwick Hotel
The Bushwick Hotel is a reimagining and reinterpretation of classic rock n roll flavor with modern retooling. “The band embraces today’s hybrid genres with touches of brass-band jazz and garage blues. The combination of sounds and conventions handpicked from the last fifty years of rock history combine into a potent, unexpected brew.” –Jack McManus Relix

Originally a solo effort by Gregory Ferreira, the band found each other in the busy Brooklyn music scene and crafted their forthcoming album, Graffiti of the Young Man’s Mind. The band is currently touring after the release of their second studio release, Hard Times.
Castle Black
Castle Black
"Castle Black is a Brooklyn-based rock trio, bringing a powerful and thunderous sound, full of hard-hitting jams, never sacrificing the hook. Described as drawing from punk, post-punk, grunge, alternative and new wave, Castle Black refuses to be pinned down to a genre. Each song careens through an almost stream of consciousness depiction of life stories, social anthems and raw emotions. Gritty female vocals, delicate back-up adornments, roaring drums, canny bass and guitar-forward hooks collide, staying in your head for days on end.

They have been described as “the kind of band you want to catch on the way up” (New York Music Daily), whose “sound is an inventive and stimulating mixture of genres,” making “Castle Black’s style one of a kind.” (Indie Rock Café), Castle Black is “capturing the NY sound with a subdued, crunchy Garage-band sound with a slight L-7-esque edge to their own concoction.” (Musically Fresh)"
The Shining Hours
The Shining Hours
The Shining Hours are a Brooklyn based alt-indie rock quartet, who has been said to have shows that explode in a wall of sound. Scattered with raw lyrics, the vocals cut through and penetrate brick by brick, swirling in a tornado of reverb-drenched guitar riffs and driving bass-lines. Their lyrics are visceral, their melodies infectious; in short, you will have their tunes stuck in your head for quite a while, and there's nothing you can do about it.
