Joyce Manor
Joyce Manor
If you ask the guys of Joyce Manor to describe themselves, they'll tell you the band is "four guys who have a taste for bad Chinese food, Thin Lizzy guitar solos, and calling 'shotgun'." But one listen to their infectiously catchy pop-punk reveals them as much, much more than that. Joyce Manor deconstructs punk rock to it's most catchy core with Weezer-esque pop sensibilities and gigantic hooks that beg you to sing along.



Originally conceived as a 2-piece acoustic duo in 2008 by singer/guitarist Barry Johnson and guitarist Chase Knobbe during a drunken escapade at Disneyland, the band grew to include Matt Ebert (bass/vocals) and Kurt Walcher (drums) by November of 2009. After releasing a demo and a split 7", the band released their first self-titled full-length in 2011 on 6131 Records to critical acclaim. LA Weekly singled out Joyce Manor as "one of the most promising bands" in LA, while Absolutepunk hailed them by saying, "Joyce Manor have become the poster child for the young band that does everything right." Alternative Press called their debut a "sprightly, enjoyable record," and Bring On Mixed Reviews commented, "It's rare that a band gets it this right with their first effort," while Decoy Music claims "Joyce Manor is one of a few bands to do their forefathers proud." Perhaps Punknews put it best and most simply though, when bestowing upon the band the honor of 2011 Album of the Year, that "Joyce Manor is everyone's favorite new artist. Those who disagree are clearly lying."



2011 also saw the band release a handful of new splits and a busy touring schedule that saw them criss-crossing the United States. In November of 2011 the band began recording for their second full length, Of All Things I Will Soon Grow Tired, which will be released on Asian Man Records on April 17, 2012.
Paint It Black
Paint It Black
Dan Yemin may not quite be an "elder statesmen" of punk, but his impact on it throughout the past 15 years certainly approaches Mt. Rushmore status. After establishing a melodic edge to the precedings with Lifetime and Kid Dynamite, Yemin has finally "stepped to the mic'" with Paint it Black. Conveying the intensely personal (try a brush with death) as well as the overtly political (war, chemical dependency and "womb envy"), Yemin and company continue to leave room for the threatening urgency of a beautifully writ "fuck you" song. Drawing on traditionally aggro forebears like Minor Threat, musical innovators like Swiz and the cold-stare lyricism of hip hop, Paint it Black is a mixed-bag success story worthy of its pedigree.

Hesitation Wounds
Hesitation Wounds
Hesitation Wounds is the combined sound of different backgrounds and 5 hours of song writing. In May of 2012, the idea was to combine friends (some of whom had never met) from different bands and see what could happen in one afternoon. Jeremy Bolm (Touché Amoré), vocalist of Hesitation Wounds, commented, “I told Neeraj Kane (The Hope Conspiracy, Suicide File, Holy Fever), Jay Weinberg (ex-Against Me!), and Stephen ‘Scuba’ LaCour (Ex-Trap Them, True Cross), ‘Let’s write as many songs as we can on Sunday and record them on Monday.’ Jay was in town and Scuba agreed to come out from Arizona for the weekend. What we came up with was three songs and an intro. We recorded them Monday afternoon with long time friend and always-available-for-my-stupid-shit, Alex Estrada. Lyrically, the songs are about witnessing the murder of a friend, the life and death of the inspirational underdog folk singer Phil Ochs, and the overall reality of life. Sonically, it’s an abrasive / no strings attached outpouring of fast and heavy hardcore not far off from the bands we’re already responsible for. We’re proud of the outcome and we hope you enjoy.”

"This is SV02. (because I couldn’t live with myself having anyone else put money into such a capricious idea)." - Jeremy Bolm.
