Born in 2011, Legs Like Tree Trunks are flying straight out of Pizzaburgh, Pennsylvania. The mathy, folky, indie, rocky music is a subtle segue into a complicated world. Mathy overtones hang like icicles, eventually falling and smashing onto the indie rock porch LLTT have made a base from. Accessibility is key and there is plenty here. Fun, upbeat, and full of pizazz, Legs Like Tree Trunks are sure to leave a mark on the music industry in the years to come. Check out their most accessible song “Anchorage” off their 2012 EP Future Reference below. Read More…

Louisville, Kentucky’s Mansions seemingly can do no wrong, but being one of the hardest working bands in the industry doesn’t hurt. Releasing at least one album every year since its inception in 2007, Mansions has also been able to maintain an impressive tour schedule. Touring in support of bands such as Hellogoodbye, A Great Big Pile of Leaves, Look Mexico, The Honorary Title, and many more, they even got to open up for Taking Back Sunday during their Tell All Your Friends 10th Anniversary Tour. Their brand of lo-fi, fuzzy rock does an excellent job of being simple while putting forth a large sound. Check out the music video for their song “City Don’t Care” off their 2011 release Dig Up the Dead below.
