From Indian Lakes
“From Indian Lakes could easily be handpicked as one of the best alternative rock bands most people have never heard of. The California quintet blend intelligent and touching lyrics with entrancing rock to create a musical organism that sounds like Brand New’s poetic yet daring younger brother.” – Blare Magazine
“…one of the better unknown efforts of 2009…if you are akin to tapestries of sonic guitars, vocals with impressive range, and a very personal approach filled with echoed pianos and acoustics, then “The Man With Wooden Legs” will feel like a worthy journey that will take you where few have traveled, and even less have succeeded in. Score: 4.5/5″- BringOneMixedReviews
“This album overall sounds beautiful, and will be something new for those of you who enjoy Enter Shikari and Circa Survive.” -The Interlude
The American Scene
The American Scene is a four piece indie band from Berkeley, CA.
Their new album, Safe For Now, was released on August 7th 2012 via Pure Noise Records.

Hailing from the Inland Empire in Southern California, [Naive Thieves] has released their self-titled 5-song EP via their website, http://naivethieves.com, entitled From Nowhere. There is always something very, very refreshing about stumbling upon a band such as this one. It’s bands like these that hold steady the faith I place in music, a faith that I place maybe a little too much confidence in given music’s abundance of garbage soiling its name. This is not the case with Naive Thieves. These guys are the type of guy that make me glad to hold both ends of my broken headphones up to my ears for half an hour. The product of their efforts can be easily called music, and isn’t that all we really want in the end? There are no after effects, nothing of that sort. From Nowhere gives one the impression that it was recorded in one go-around, a wholesome feel that is absent in much of the music we hear today. – Mind Equals Blown
