REQUIRED LISTENING: Ovlov – “The Great Crocodile”

Back in April, we got word that CT-based band Ovlov and Philly crew Little Big League were putting out a split 7″ together on Tiny Engines. It comes out in August, but today both bands shared songs off the split over at Stereogum because, let’s be honest, there’s no way our anticipation until then wouldn’t drive us insane. Ovlov’s […]

Daylight Officially Change Name To Superheaven, Announce New Tour Dates

Earlier this afternoon, Pennsylvania’s Daylight announced that, from this day forward, they will now be known as “Superheaven.” According to the four-piece, they “legally cannot operate under the band name ‘Daylight’ anymore,” and as such, have opted to begin a new chapter in their careers. The group was adamant that, despite this change, their members, […]

Pile Stream “Special Snowflakes”

Pile is a band I have long been fond of. Though they have long been on Exploding in Sound Records, the label only really took off after last year’s positive Pitchfork review of Speedy Ortiz’s Major Arcana, though it should be noted that Ovlov’s am. was another highlight of 2013. That said, Pile may just […]

Nonetheless, the band has just released a self titled EP, toured with up and coming indie rock band Ovlov, and now, on Bloody Disgusting, they have […]
