Cosmonaut
Cosmonaut
Cosmonaut is a 4-piece indie-rock band from NYC. Formed in 2009 by classmates John Paul Manley and Daniel Quinn, Cosmonaut blends shoegaze influences with alternative rock and pop, to create a unique, mesmerizing sound.

The band came together after Manley and Quinn met at Fordham University. Both Manley and Quinn share vocal and guitar duties, and enlisted longtime friends Brendan Picone (bass) and Tom McIntyre (drums) to fill out the rhythm section. Cosmonaut is currently recording with producer Kyle "Slick" Johnson (Wavves, Modest Mouse, Cymbals Eat Guitars). The band's song "Occulture" also was featured recently on Occupy This Album alongside numerous other artists (including Patti Smith, Yo La Tengo, and Mogwai).

Cosmonaut's sound has been characterized as "somewhere in between Kevin Shields and Stephen Malkmus" (Aural Wes). "Their resonant compositions are offset with clear melodies and a natural intensity," according to Fordham University's "The Observer." Weezer's videographer and unofficial fifth member, Karl Koch, has described Cosmonaut's sound as incorporating "shades of My Bloody V, early New Order, and Pavement," (Karlophone).

Josh Eppard of Coheed and Cambria is quoted as saying " Cosmonaut has found a way to embody the classic rock and roll elements that have been all but forgotten in contemporary rock while keeping intact their indie music footing. Cosmonaut is my favorite new band. Here's to the future."

Cosmonaut is currently finishing their debut ep to be released in 2013.
Peanut Butter Lovesicle
Peanut Butter Lovesicle
"Trust a trio to make contagiously vibrant rock that's this hideously cool. Prepare to have your brain cells stolen and shoved in a rock 'n' roll grinder." -Spoonfed UK

Peanut Butter Lovesicle is a rock band of family from Ocean City, NJ that thrive on high octane shows. They give audiences a twist of lead vocals from the drum kit and bass, while drawing influence from a mix of heavier 70's blues rock and an early 90's blender of rap meets rock.

They began playing music together in 2009, gained a buzz in the NYC scene, and since developed a following of fans in London after spending the last year touring the area on and off. Two of their singles “State of I” and “Black Eyed Blues” were featured on seasons of television show Gossip Girl, and they have released their 2nd EP “Dirty Pride” produced by legendary Henry Hirsch (Lenny Kravitz, Mick Jagger) at his 1869 church-turned-studio in Hudson Valley, NY. Since then, the band has received press from NME, MTV, Interview Magazine, IFC, Classic Rock Magazine, Deli NYC, and Earmilk. Classic Rock Magazine has just featured them in the UK as a “High Hopes Band”, and they recently played The Bonnaroo Music & Arts festival in 2013 , followed by a west-coast US tour, and CMJ.
