DARK TEA

Website / Bandcamp / Facebook

Dark Tea, the solo project of LA-based Gary Canino, will release their new self-titled, full-length studio album on April 30, 2021, on Fire Talk Records. The 12-track collection expands the group’s sound from their previous LP (also called Dark Tea), further exploring Canino’s cinematic visions and twangy folk narratives.

Born and raised in Huntington, NY, Gary’s quiet Long Island youth gave him access to all of the pleasures and distractions of New York City. After college at the University of Virginia, Canino made his way to Brooklyn in 2011. He played bass with post-punk revivalists Rips, recording and touring their debut album with Austin Brown (Parquet Courts), forming Dark Tea in 2016. Fire Talk, a label known for left-field rockers like Pure X and Dehd, issued the first Dark Tea LP in 2019, mixed by Jarvis Taveniere of Woods and featuring memorable guitar work from Meg Duffy of Hand Habits.

The new Dark Tea album, recorded by Matt Barrick (The Walkmen) and NYC punk veteran Sasha Stroud, is a document of deeply personal, interior reflections, contrasted with the wide open spaces of an idyllic American soundscape. Beyond the music, Gary channels his Cassavetes obsession by making videos for Dark Tea, Current Joys, and The Berries. It’s a continuation of the Dark Tea vision: creativity, commitment, nurturing a sense of wonder through the haze of nostalgia, while looking toward the future.

COLOR GREEN

Bandcamp / Spotify

Color Green is an American Rock and Roll Duo based in Los Angeles, consisting of Noah Kohll (Current Joys, Young Guv, Surf Curse, Dark Tea) and Corey Madden (Richard Rose, Grave Flowers Bongo Band).

Color Green formed in Ridgewood, Queens in 2018. The duo created a 4 song self-titled debut EP released by Maximum Exposure in 2020. Recently signing to ORG Music for a co-release with Aquarium Drunkard, Color Green recorded two singles and a full length album that will debut in 2022. Their sound culls from the eternal solitude of working musicians, the feeling of infinite transition, and the need to create a space that transmits the strange sounds of American music.

Pulling from the Allman Brothers, Acetone, the Grateful Dead, and other acts from the dusty storage boxes of their attics, Color Green are searchers for a continuation of classic songwriting through the use of collaboration and close examination of the relics of yesterday’s past, while maintaining the spirit of their present selves.

TONY JAY

Bandcamp

Partially cloaked under the wonderful hiss of a 4-track cassette recording lies the lo-fi power pop of Tony Jay’s A Wave In The Dark. Channeling a bedroom pop sentiment meets snarling 60s girl group melodies (it’s more

Joey Ramone than Mary Weiss), the songs are catchy and delivered in a playful, yet cynical, tone. The lyrics are set in the world of horror films, video games, and the life of the “Tony Jay” persona: shoulder-length black frizzy hair, pale white face, with

a black streak across the eyes, a leather jacket, and white Nikes. Not so much glam punk, not so much New Romantic - but some distant relative where street kids listened to pop punk bands and roamed empty cityscapes.

SURE THING

New band w/Pat Thomas from Cool Ghouls and Jack Brown from Healing Potpourri channeling a kind of Carole King/Christine McVie vibe.
