Echo & Drake:
“While it’s not unheard of for a band to thoroughly sweep the Band Slam [Best Band, Best New Band, Best Rock Band, Best Singer/Songwriter (Jon Ericson), Best Instrumentalist (Rich DeVito)], it is unusual for a new local band to garner such buzz right out of the gates. But Echo & Drake is the right band at the right time. Their ‘80s-tinged indie pop is unique among Connecticut acts." ~The Hartford Advocate

The High Dials:
“Hailing from the Montreal scene that spawned The Dears and The Arcade Fire, the High Dials have more in common with the new wave of thoughtful guitar bands that includes the Shins and the Essex Green, with their precise guitar interplay underscoring songs about being adrift in the world or hopelessly in love. (The songs) breathe new life into pop’s tired romantic lexicon. Echoes of soft-rock legends Big Star, Love and the Moody Blues.” 4 stars The Independent (UK)

This is Heirlooms’ record release party. New indie folk from Jesse Stanford and friends.
