Brooklyn-based shoegaze / post-rock outfit LUFF release their lead single, the swervy, spangled gem, "Through Here Like Our Fathers." Shifting from crashing chords to cleanly picked notes in the blink of an eye, the single reveals the quartet skillfully working a tightrope between imagining an avian history of our winged brethren and lamenting where their path has brought us today.

The new project of Jen Johnson, Mike Latulippe (ex-Static of the Gods), Daniel McNair and Nick Murphy (ex-The Acre), focuses on expansive landscapes and sonic layers as much as it does introspective and close-to-the-vest lyrics.
Right now the band is carving out songs to be released in batches throughout the year and is booking shows in and around the Boston area.
The repertoire for this five-piece from Chicago has been described as Americana, Folk Punk, Pop, or just Good Ol’ Fashioned Rock n’ Roll. They’ve been compared to The Hold Steady, The Clash, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, The Fratellis, Frightened Rabbit, Backyard Tire Fire, and “Wilco on Xanax covering The Clash”
Endless Wave is a 3-piece indie rock band taking an energized approach to shoegaze and psychedelic rock. The band consists of André Obin (bass, vocals), Timothy Ryan (guitars) and Tucker Dawson (drums). Marrying elements of post-punk and dream pop, the band’s sound has been aptly described by press as “skygaze”. Over the course of 2010, Endless Wave recorded 2 EPs with legendary producers, Paul Q. Kolderie (Radiohead, Pixies) and Adam Taylor at Camp Street Studios in Cambridge, MA.
“Imagine the Verve, Ride, Slowdive, or My Bloody Valentine if any of those bands went jogging on a regular basis. There’s a bit more of a rock thrust to these songs than is often found up the nü-gaze tree.”
