Cayetana Joins Tiny Engines

By , 27 February, 2013, No Comment

Cayetana Joins Tiny Engines

• Writing for Debut LP / Recording this Summer
• Demo EP featured on If You Make It
• Cayetana playing Waxahatchee release show/party with Swearin’ and Radiator Hospital
• Tom May of The Menzingers recommends…

——————————————————————————–

Tiny Engines (Dikembe, Restorations, Tigers Jaw) is thrilled to welcome Philadelphia’s Cayetana to their growing roster. The band debuted theirDemo EP in December 2012 and it was quickly met with rave reviews from the punk community. If You Make It recently featured Cayetana’s Demo in their albums section. You can download it for free (donations encouraged!)HERE.

Cayetana is currently writing and playing shows in preparation of recording their debut LP this Summer for Tiny Engines. A Fall release is tentatively scheduled for the album. On Friday, March 1st Cayetana will be a part of the Waxahatchee release show/party along with Swearin’ and Radiator Hospital at The Golden Tea House. More tour dates coming soon!

Long time listeners, first time callers “Cayetana” have been around the Philadelphia music scene for quite a while. These three ladies came together about a year ago, which also happens to be when they started playing their instruments. This has let them develop a chemistry that takes other bands years to achieve, if at all. They’ve jumped head first with their clothes on into the pool at the raging party that is the Philadelphia punk scene. Their self-released demo/e.p. is quite the piece of ear candy. The contemplative and sometimes poignant lyrics delivered in a sincere and oft-urgent croon are perfectly complimented with a locked-in rhythm section comprising of melodious bass lines and driven, hoppy work on the skins. You can expect to hear a lot more from Cayetana in the coming months. Have a listen.

BIO
——————————————————————————–

It was surprising to virtually no one – save for Dikembe itself – that Chicago Bowls, in all its anthemic, adrenalized indie-cum-emo / punk greatness, took the underground by storm last year. The ironic, pun-laden ode to weed and arguably (and less ironically) the greatest championship squad in NBA history was a breath of fresh air … playful, charismatic and downright infectious without emitting an ounce of pretension. Four revelatory cuts of undeniable, high energy DIY rock ‘n’ roll, Chicago Bowls cajoled the listener to laugh along with song titles such as “Scottie Spliffen” and “Michael Jordank.” There was no doubt that Dikembe’s playful nature was an integral part of its singular sound, and perhaps one of the biggest reasons why we couldn’t wait to hear what the outfit conjured up next.

Accordingly, it would have been easy for Dikembe to rush its debut full-length, but the band wisely spent the appropriate amount of time recording and mixing the ten amazing songs that would eventually make up highly anticipated Broad Shoulders. And from the first long-awaited note, it’s clear that there’s something truly unique manifesting itself Dikembe’s signature sound – powerhouse rhythms, the acrobatic back-and-forth between the guitars and front man Steven Gray’s confident-yet-completely raw and exposed delivery – is all still present, and it’s imparted with even more vigor and conviction than ever before. However, album highlights such as “I Watch A Lot Of Jackie Chan Movies” and “Not Today, Angel” are thoughtful, nuanced and occasionally even haunting. They help to paint a picture of an evolving band and a record that is not only imaginative and memorable, but one that is fully realized and worthy of all the hype.

Modern Baseball – On Tour / Debut LP Out Now

Modern Baseball – On Tour / In Support of Sports

Sports LP Available Now On Lame-O Records
• Stream/Download the album / Order the vinyl here
• Winter Dates Announced
RIYL: The Sidekicks, The Front Bottoms, Say Anything, Motion City Soundtrack

——————————————————————————————————

Philadelphia’s Modern Baseball just released their debut LP, Sports, on Lame-O Records. You can stream/download the album or order the vinyl here.

Modern Baseball exhibits a lot of promise and boasts their grasp on the fundamentals of good songwriting while testing the waters by writing a record within this weird, hybrid pop/indie/DIY/quirky genre pioneered by bands like The Front Bottoms and Tigers Jaw. Recommended for fans of Motion City Soundtrack’s lyrics and drunkenly grasping the shoulders of your best friend.Property Of Zack

Modern Baseball is the brainchild of Jacob Ewald and Brendan Lukens, of Frederick and Brunswick, Maryland, respectively. The band began to take real shape in the fall of 2011 when releasing their first material, an EP entitled The Nameless Ranger. Shortly after the band relocated to Philadelphia for school, Ewald to Drexel University while Lukens continued his schooling at Chestnut Hill College for Communications. A split with Marietta entitled Couples Therapy followed in the Spring of 2012 and the band continued to garner high praise within the Philly underground. After touring with Marietta in support of Couples Therapy the band geared up to write and record their first full length record. After sleepless nights and taking full advantage of Drexel University’s free studio, the two, with great help from engineer, friend, and bass player, Ian Farmer finished the recording process. The record, Sports, was just released on the newly formed label, Lame-O Records, run by band manager/friend, Eric Osman.

Modern Baseball is heading out for some Winter dates in late December / early January in support of Sports. The band will be playing alongside a slew of great bands like Dikembe, Waxahatchee, Pity Sex, Pentimento, The Candy Hearts and You Blew It!. You can check out the tour poster here.
