TONIGHT: Mountain Man Records presents Tiny Lungs, Wild Pack Of Canaries, and Brown & Blue @ 6pm
What are you doing tonight?! Long Beach independent label, Mountain Man Records, is presenting an in-store here at the Origami Records loft and I think you should definitely come on down to check it out. The showcase is in celebration of MMR's recently released "Singles Series Volume 1," which will be available for purchase during the show. The series features 7"s from local MMR roster bands Tiny Lungs, Brown and Blue, and Wild Pack of Canaries. And guess what?? All three artists will be performing a set here at Origami! Tight!!
Tiny Lungs is the first group featured on the Singles Series. While not entirely dark in aesthetic, the band's sound certainly has roots in early emo and post-hardcore with an added spike of modern day basement pop-punk. For fans of Joyce Manor, Koalacaust (RIP), Summer Vacation, and Algernon Cadwallader.
On the other side of the musical spectrum, Brown and Blue possess a sound more characterized by American indie and folk. The group began in 2006 as a solo project of Downey teenager Danny Nogueiras and has faced multiple lineup changes since inception. Now headquartered in Long Beach, Brown and Blue released its second full-length "Second Chances" on MMR in January 2010 and has now released two tracks on their recent 7".
And lastly, Long Beach's Wild Pack of Canaries is the final band featured on the singles series. Originally a three person group, WPoC has since morphed into a six piece, with most members contributing guitar riffs to the band's experimental, upbeat sound. Comparable to LBC's own Crystal Antlers, Wild Pack of Canaries also draws influence from the psychedelic, math rock, and progressive genres.
Okay, well there you have it. I'll see you TONIGHT at 6pm!
