SWMRS
SWMRS
SWMRS is Cole Becker (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Max Becker (lead vocals, lead guitar), Joey Armstrong (drums, backing vocals), and Sebastian Mueller (bass, backing vocals). The band emerged in early 2015 through the dissolution of previous project Emily's Army. In the grand tradition of punk rock, Cole Becker and friend Joey Armstrong formed the band before even learning to play their instruments, after watching the movie School of Rock at age eight. Drawing influence from seminal pop-punk acts like The Ramones and The Clash, the Beckers and Armstrong released two full-length records and a handful of EPs before graduating high school. The band toured the world, sharing stages with the likes of Pennywise, Rise Against, The Aquabats, Gerard Way, and Soundgarden, and appeared at Reading and Leeds festivals, Warped Tour, and Soundwave, before pursuing a new musical endeavor with a broader sonic palate. The new band solidified its lineup as Max Becker made the switch from bass to lead guitar and Armstrong taught friend Sebastian Mueller to play the bass. SWMRS attributes the emotional lyrical content and slicker production of their new material to diverse influences ranging from Public Enemy and A Tribe Called Quest to Pavement, Weezer, and Nirvana.
White Reaper
From the increasingly fertile Louisville, KY, DIY scene emerges White Reaper – an incandescent power trio who is ready and willing to blow out eardrums far and wide.

The band – formed by Tony Esposito (vocals/guitar) and twin brothers Nick (drums) and Sam Wilkerson (bass) -- combines sparkling hooks and fluid, fluttering rhythms to create psychedelia-tinged garage punk that make heads bob without sacrificing an ounce of sonic bite.

Oakland future pop, From lush dance tunes, to r&b leaning/ambient electro, PARENTZ features at once intentionally nostalgic and organic sounds to create songs that are part absurdity, part authenticity, and totally awesome.
