Queens NYC based Raccoon Fighter shoot laser beams out of their eyes, smoke fuzz boxes and swim in the sky with Alex Chilton. Back stroking with him in time to gritty 1970's east village NYC, where they shoot pool/sniff glue with the New York Dolls and Television at CBGB's. Their latest release Spiral Flag in the words of Alibi “comes off like a brawl between The Beatles White Album and T Rex' The Slider" all the while putting their own modern twist on things, creating “a sound that’s both timeless and feels
particularly of-the-moment” frequently compared to bands like the Growlers, Ty Segall, Tame Impala and Black Lips.

Since forming in 2009 they've shared the stage with Ex Cops, Joywave, Das Racist, Sunflower Bean, Spirit Family Reunion, Ski Beatz, The London Souls, among many other local greats. The end of 2014 and beginning of 2015 brought the band good fortune as they landed a few TV placements, including two songs on the Showtime series Shameless, beginning with the season premiere and multiple MTV spots. Their upocoming EP 'Hover Craft' is due out on Papercup Music summer 2016.
Best Behavior
Inspired by a breakup and a not-so-sunny cosmic prediction delivered by an astrologer, the songs on its debut release, Good Luck Bad Karma were written in under a month by Best Behavior's Alex Gruenburg, who went on to play and sing every part on the album himself. Reverb-soaked guitars are paired with playful vocal melodies and an infectious raw energy, resulting in the kind of summery, upbeat songs that will appeal to fans of Best Coast and Wavves.
Hailing from Brooklyn, NYC, Monograms, fuses elements of garage & indie rock with new-wave psych sounds and driving drum beats. Sonic elements of lucid rhythms, melodic songwriting and surfy guitar riffs point Monograms’ references at the underbelly of previous decades in DIY and college radio, as well as contemporary lo-fi vibes that pull from similar genres:

Monograms is Brooklyn’s New-Wave-Garage-Psych. A Digital Rock. A Vintage Future.
Mustardmind is an NYC-based band formed in February 2015. Although conceived in just the last year, the band has become known for their experimental, atmospheric sound with pop-rock sensibility. With a heavy focus on their live show, Mustardmind makes sure to produce a unique experience at every performance.
