Slyly meandering from complex and offbeat buildups to soaring post-rock interludes, Fairness draws the listener into an ultimately contemplative musical experience. The Wichita four-piece favors variety and experimentation, allowing songs to blend frenzied parts with hypnotizing instrumentation.

Major Games

The first word that comes to mind upon listening to Major Games’ 2015 self-titled full length LP is dynamic. Each song is layered richly with skillful precision, the album oscillates from psych-tinged shoegaze to moodier alternative rock to groove-laden, more unpredictable tracks. Topped with equally versatile vocals, Major Games cover varied territory deftly to create a cohesive, atmospheric record whose layers reveal themselves with each repeat listen.

A three-piece from Philadelphia, PA, formed a band and a great friendship in early Fall 2011, creating indie punk poppy jams full of raw sound and energy.

Beach Slang:
Guitar, bass and drums. Played loudly. We make good trouble.* And better listeners. Your Mom will think we’re sweethearts. We kind of are. We hardly talk. So we make records.** And it feels good to feel like you finally belong. *James also plays in Weston, Ed also plays in Crybaby and JP also plays in Ex Friends. **Last Saturday, my friend Caroline told me, “You guys sound like what I imagine a one-night stand between The Psychedelic Furs and The Replacements would sound like.” I really kind of adore her for that.
