See Through Dresses Joins Tiny Engines / New EP Out Fall 2015 / Upcoming European Tour

• New EP out Fall 2015 on Tiny Engines 
• Self-Titled LP available on Bandcamp / iTunes / Spotify
• RIYL: The Cure, Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, Creepoid, Pity Sex


Tiny Engines is excited to welcome Omaha, NE's See Through Dresses to the label roster. Fresh off recent tour dates with Cursive and Beach Slang the band recorded six new songs that will make up their Tiny Engines debut. The EP will be released in the Fall of 2015. The band leaves next week for a month long European tour and have one local show with Matt Pond PA beforehand. Full dates listed below.

The band's 2013 Self-Titled LP is available for streaming/download on BandcampiTunes and Spotify.

Principal songwriters Mathew Carroll and Sara Bertuldo, along with drummer Nate Van Fleet and bassist Alex Kirts, have crafted a catalogue of songs indebted to classic post-punk and new wave artists of the 80's, but their sonic footprint more closely resembles the textural treatments of 90's dream-pop and shoegaze. The arrangements often build as though to erupt, only to implode. There are moments when Bertuldo and Carroll sound noxious and distant, their voices doused in reverb, their guitars droning and pulsing. When the clouds look dark, See Through Dresses offer flashes of pure pop sunshine to punctuate those moments of isolation and distance.

• Video Premiere on The AV Club + Song Premiere on Brooklyn Vegan
• New song / live video via Allston Pudding
• RIYL: Superchunk, The Sidekicks, Parquet Courts, Sundials, Protomartyr


Tiny Engines recently welcomed Cambridge, MA's Sweet John Bloom to their roster. The label will be releasing the band's debut LP, Weird Prayer, in June of 2015. You can sign up to be notified when pre-orders go live here. The band will be heading out in June for some dates in support of the new record. Dates listed below. More confirmations to come.

You can check out the third single from Weird Prayer right now. "Tell Me" is premiering exclusively on Stereogum. "Moving Target" previously premiered on Brooklyn Vegan and the "Blood Moon" video premiered on The AV Club.

You can also check out a live video for one of the upcoming album tracks on Allston Pudding. The band's 2014 Picky EP is available for download on Bandcamp. Follow Sweet John Bloom on Twitter.

Featuring former members of Daniel Striped Tiger, Four Eyes and Lost Twin, Sweet John Bloom first took form in the Spring of 2013. The band recorded their debut EP as a trio shortly after but later expanded to a four piece before recording their debut full-length,Weird Prayer. Recorded with Justin Pizzoferrato (Dinosaur Jr, Speedy Ortiz, California X) and Seth Manchester (Battles, Fang Island, The Body) during the Summer and Fall of 2014, Weird Prayer expands and evolves Sweet John Bloom's brand of catchy punk rock. Clocking in at 15 songs and 35 minutes the band truly runs the gamut between indie rock, power pop and pop/punk. Diverse yet completely unified as a whole, Weird Prayer is a debut LP to be reckoned with and marks Sweet John Bloom as a band you need to know in 2015.

Annabel - Song Premiere on The Fader / New LP Coming Soon on Tiny Engines

• Having It All out June 2015 on Tiny Engines 
• RIYL: Nada Surf, The Sidekicks, Japandroids, Tokyo Police Club, Death Cab For Cutie


Tiny Engines recently announced the release of Having It All, the third full-length from Kent, Ohio's Annabel. The new album was produced by Evan Weiss of Into It. Over It.. Tiny Engines will release the record in June of 2015. You can sign up to be notified when pre-orders go live here! Check out the video teaser for the album here.

You can now hear the second single from Having It All. "Another Day, Another Vitamin" is premiering exclusively on The Fader. "Everything" previously premiered on Stereogum. The track was also featured/reviewed on Pitchfork andHalf Cloth.

In a fitting valediction for a song that's both humble, populist and aspirational in the tradition of emotive, Midwestern indie rock, Hendricks offers, "Not everything should need to have a meaning/ And not every second counts." It's not negative or cynical. It's a cry of freedom, of allowing life to happen on its own terms and finding meaning as it comes. - Pitchfork

The hallmarks pulse through their music: jangling guitars, lingering syllables, trembling drums, crunching tones that swirl upward and finally settle. You can hear all of that in “Everything,” the first single from the band’s upcoming third album, Having It All, which Into It. Over It.’s Evan Weiss produced. It’s the kind of song-cyclone that emotionally decimates, its grand yearning stirring up memories you thought you’d outlived. When the amp buzz finally quits at the end, you’re leveled — and it’s completely exhilarating. - Stereogum

At three minutes and 30 seconds, the song has space to move around, and the band’s singular grasp on songcraft means that a late-developing grower of a bridge pays off with a final, striking quiet/loud climax, one that features an even more flexible vocal performance from Hendricks, who adds a bit of warm rasp whenever the surroundings are quiet enough. It takes a real sense of balance and taste to be both the thinking-person’s indie-pop act and a group that grasps the easy-going pleasures of, say, Tokyo Police Club or Jimmy Eat World. More than any band in their broad milieu, you get the sense that you can trust Annabel with melodies and hooks and, ultimately, ideas. - Half Cloth

Having It All follows up numerous releases from the band on the Count Your Lucky Stars label. Also, Annabel previously released their 2010 EP, Here We Are Tomorrow, on Tiny Engines. You can currently stream the entire Annabel discography on Bandcamp. Also, check out an in-depth interview with Annabel from the Summer of 2014 on Half Cloth.

On appearances alone, Akron, Ohio’s Annabel could be any modest midwestern rock band—scrawny, bespectacled, with grins as permanent as their tattoos. A similar innocence might be perceived in their songs, in guitars that jingle and a bass that romps puppy-like, in vocals that compete with the music like a little brother for attention. But subsequent listens will reveal Annabel to be a band whose elements tangle into something complex and complete and . Indeed, Having It All feels orchestral at times, with guitars that intertwine and sometimes collapse into harmonic hums. The sticky chords on “The Fortunate Ones,” for example, are wrenched around by a stubborn drumbeat until a quiet chorus, during which singer Ben Hendricks warbles beneath the thrumming rhythm and whispering organ; toward the end, though, that quiet chorus rises into a roar during which melody burns white hot and the instruments, indistinguishable, melt into a pummeling progression. At no point does this complexity weigh the album down; instead, Annabel’s third full-length (and first with Tiny Engines since 2010’s Here We Are Tomorrow) feels joyful. The toms on “The Importance of Disappointment” bob with a rubber bounce, skip beneath guitars that spiral and spin like melodic mandalas. Even songs like the distant “Days In Between” and “How To: A Self-Help Guide,” whose acoustic strokes chop through spectral wisps, don’t sound like sad songs; instead, they serve as breathers, counterbalance the songs that seem breathless. This busyness doesn’t make Annabel any less modest; their music still possesses some pastoral, midwestern appeal. It’s just that their seeming simplicity, however sweet, may be more plentiful than it appears.

Sinai Vessel Joins Tiny Engines / Recording Debut LP with Chris Crisci (Appleseed Cast) / Upcoming Shows

• Profanity 12" out now on Flannel Gurl 
• RIYL: Cursive, Pedro The Lion, Manchester Orchestra


Tiny Engines is thrilled to welcome Sinai Vessel to the label's roster. The band will head into the studio in May to record their debut full-length with Chris Crisci of The Appleseed Cast. The album will follow up the band's last release, the Profanity EP, recently released on 12" vinyl from Flannel Gurl in the Fall of 2014. The album is also available for name-your-price download on Bandcamp.

Sinai Vessel describes themselves as "sissy punk" and while that might be rather tongue-in-cheek, it's accurate in the sense that Sinai Vessel are an earnest punk band wearing their hearts firmly on their sleeves. Writing songs about disillusionment, understanding, confusion, leaving home, and growing up, Sinai Vessel practices a brand of emotional vulnerability and self-reflection that comes across as truly meaningful and worthwhile. It is a difficult tightrope the band manages to walk but they do it with such skill and expertise. Much like life itself, the true power of Sinai Vessel's craft is the subtle nature in which they move.

The band has some upcoming shows. Dates listed below. More Summer tour dates coming soon!
