The Beets are a garage rock/psychedelic band from Jackson Heights, NY. Lots of reverb, minimalistic drumming, some backwoods vibes, and shouted vocals sung by all three band members. Similar to Thee Oh Sees. They recently released their debut, Spit In The Face Of People Who Don?t Want To Be Cool, which was limited to 200 hand-painted copies, on Blank Dogs? label Captured Tracks.
Wry is a mid tempo indie rock band who started in circa April of 2008. At first it was Nick and Keith with a few other people and things didn't work out. However, things picked up again late 2008, early 2009 when Ryan and Jerry joined and solidified the group. For fans of Cursive, Pinback and Black Heart Procession.
"Combining the quirky, awkward-but-sexy nature of CSS with a more defined loud-vs-soft side, EULA is a fun new wave group from New Haven. Their music is packed with the loud, pointed guitar riffs and rapid basslines that would make Northwest pseudo punk proud; think a blown out of proportion and hyped-up Kill Rock Stars release." -FensePost
