Madrid-based garage rockers Hinds started as a duo of Carlotta
Cosials and Ana García Perrote. Shortly before releasing their first single "Demo" in 2014 the duo became a four piece, with close friend, ex guitar player and singer Ade Martín on bass and one of their first fans, Amber
Grimbergen on drums. During the rest of the year and throughout 2015 they embarked on their first world tour, playing everywhere from Thailand, Vietnam and Australia to the United States to the worldwide festival circuit,including SXSW (in which they played 16 concerts in just 4 days), Glastonbury and Burgerama. They have received very positive reviews in Pitchfork, Pigeons and Planes, Gorilla vs. Bear, Paste, SPIN, Entertainment Weekly and NME.

Their debut album, Leave Me Alone, made its way into the world on Friday, January 8, 2016 via Mom + Pop Music.

Fresh off their release, Hinds is receiving praise for their work. "This great garage-rock crew from Madrid folds decades of naïf-rock history into its craftily shambling tunes," said Rolling Stone. Pitchfork suggests its "[Carlotta] Cosials and [Ana] Perrote's shared vocal responsibilities, which fit perfectly together" that "truly set Hinds apart." Entertainment Weekly calls Hinds "...the year's buzziest indie breakout," while SPIN asks "Whether seeing Hinds live, or listening to their debut album, Leave Me Alone, one question always comes to mind: Can I join?"
Twin Peaks
Twin Peaks
When 19-year-old Chicagoans Cadien Lake James, Clay Frankel, Connor Brodner, and Jack Dolan finished high school a year ago, they were under the impression that things had to change. They were expected to go to college, and more importantly, had to deal with the reality of breaking up their band, Twin Peaks, which had just started to get some notice. Three of them committed to Evergreen State College in Olympia with the idea of keeping some semblance of the band together, but it was clear that there was a magic the four of them had. All this happened BEFORE a pivotal self-booked, three-week tour in the summer of '12. They had just recorded their debut album, Sunken, in Cadien's basement, hit the road in earnest, and everywhere they went, one thing remained the same. After seeing the energy, power, and exuberance of their live show, people in every town and members of every band they played with urged them to see this thing through. However, real life is rarely so kind or easy. Deposits were paid, dorm rooms reserved, promises made. Cadien, Connor, and Jack were headed north to Olympia.

It's a funny thing how clarity and circumstance can set and reset the table. After one semester at Evergreen, peoples' compliments still ringing in their ears, the self-described "industrious dudes" decided to quit school and give Twin Peaks a fair shake. They returned to Chicago in December, reunited with Clay, and geared up for their SXSW debut. Esquire even gave them a nod as an "Artist to Watch" at SXSW, calling them "A bunch of dirty, precocious underage kids raised on a steady diet of Jay Reatard and their parents' records...Twin Peaks deploy sugary pop hooks with the infectious enthusiasm of a high school punk band." The guys moved back in with their folks, looked into part-time jobs, and began planning the re-write of the first, post-high school chapter of their lives. The feeling was palpable: Things were about to take off.

So here we stand, ready to offer Twin Peaks to the wider world. A record full of the youthful excitement, sure to elicit "oh yeahs," and if you're not a total square, some body movin'. Sunken is out July 9th on Autumn Tone.
White Mystery
White Mystery
White Mystery was born on April 20, 2008, when Miss Alex White & and her beloved brother Francis Scott Key White spotted a shiny Airheads candy wrapper on the ground. That silvery strip of reflective paper sparked an onslaught of rock genius fortified with Chicago DIY determination. The rest is White Mystery history; like clockwork, they have released new music every year on that same date.
