Amanda X, Spirit of the Beehive, Swanox
AMANDA X (Philadelphia, Siltbreeze)

Hailing from the Kensington area of Philadelphia (home to infamous gangs such as the Yo's, Twerks and Fuzzies), Amanda X imperviously sallys forth, creating an oasis of bedroom pop and post-punk among a landscape of toxic speed, eroded enamel and chattering human skin suits. Fused together, this set of songs form the whole of Amnesia, their debut LP. The trio of Cat Park, Kat Bean and Tiffany Yoon is most adept at channeling sounds and melodies that recall the savory once-was of Scrawl and MyDolls, the piquancy that spiked the best of Harriet Records as well as the sweetest of the blueberry muffins that studded the wispy K label in a time known as "back then."

Amanda X have toured or shared the stage with such bands as Parquet Courts, Protomartyr, Tyvek, Cheater Slicks, Dum Dum Girls, Scott & Charlene's Wedding, Purling Hiss and Counter Intuits. The band vows to keep an active live presence for the remainder of 2014 and beyond. In the meantime, keep Amnesia on that turntable. It's already the album of the summer and the pool ain't even open yet. Dang! How'd they do that? Amanda X they're just that good.


"Melodic, melancholic tunes are steeped in warm shoegaze and worn-in power-pop." - Chicago Reader


"Swanox are the kind of band that like to fuck with your expectations. Even though you may recognize Anthony O BC as the drummer for the Tony Molina Band and Sam Rezendes as the bassist for SF pop greats like Smiles and Dissolve, Swanox do not play pop music. I'm not saying that their music isn't infectious  on the contrary, it's VERY infectious. Their new record on Not Not Fun, Duskrunner contains 9 songs of mind-expanding drift, at once confused and at peace, and somehow capturing the opaque, foggy beauty of San Francisco like no other record I have ever heard. Seriously. The textured guitar and synth work, coupled with the locked groove of the bass on tracks like "No Locals" call to mind some especially far-out 70's kraut-rock, but this music is much too insular and brilliant to waste time throwing around band/genre comparisons." - Origami Vinyl
