----------

Taking Meds formed in 2012 in Rochester, NY. The project began when Ben Kotin and Skylar Sarkis were on tour with their other band, Such Gold, and started to write lyrics over some of Kotin’s math rock-inspired riffs. What began as a side project in the interest of rejecting form and promoting creative freedom for four musicians quickly became a powerful live act, combining intricate, Braid-like riffs with an intensity akin to At the Drive-In.

Kill Surf City's Ever Notice How Everything's Stupid is the side project and debut release from Fort Wayne, IN's Grey Gordon. Grey started Kill Surf City with the intention to do something in the vein of The Jesus and Mary Chain, and while that’s still a huge sonic influence, he can’t stick to just one thing. ‘Ever Notice How Everything's Stupid’ is a step forward in what is intended to be a continually shifting sound drawing heavily on influences like Guided By Voices and Portastatic. Grey Gordon's Kill Surf City can never stay away from 90s college rock for too long.
