These buds are an indie/emo/punk band from Long Island, NY. They cover a pretty good amount of sonic terrain – you’ll recognize some of Cursive‘s moody layered guitars; some tracks with a female vocalist remind me a bit of Hop Along; but most prominently, you’ll notice the punk/indie/emo-leaning spirit reminiscent of Jeff Rosenstock, AJJ, and Joyce Manor. The record comes close to being a concept album, focusing on the struggle to find meaning in life while working a 9-to-5. I really think you’re going to dig it. This is one to keep an eye on that FCC warning depending on how strict your station is – it doesn’t have any of the Big Swears but a couple little ones if you have to be extra conservative with your vetting (I get it).



Tin Can Records

The Tin Can Collective is an indie/emo/punk band from Long Island, NY.
John Warren started the Tin Can Collective in 2011 as a recording project, enlisting a rotating cast of friends to complete the outfit. Among the ragtag group were Jess Warren (John’s sister and co-writer on many of the songs) and Ken Russo, who both quickly moved from frequent collaborators to fulltime members. Brian Kish joined the band in 2017, and Nick Femister joined shortly thereafter, rounding out the lineup.
Always pure of heart and full of intention, The Tin Can Collective has schlepped around the country in a rented minivan, playing their brand of beer-soaked indie emo punk for anyone who would listen, including on shows with Jeff Rosenstock, Teenage Halloween, Julien Baker, AJJ, and Laura Stevenson. They quickly became cult favorites for their chaotic live shows and became what could be described as “a band’s band”.
Axiomatic Alarm Clock addresses the perils of adulthood and the struggle to find meaning in a 40 hour work week. The band’s fourth album, it is their most focused and biting set of songs to date.
