Add To My Artists

Japanther is a band from Brooklyn, New York, United States formed in 2001 by two students at Pratt Institute. The band consists of Ian Vanek-who plays drums, cassettes, and sings-and Matt Reilly-who plays bass, a Casio SK-1, and also sings. They have recorded with Plan-It-X Records, Tapes Records, Wäntage USA and the Menlo Park label. Japanther has been featured in Vice, The New York Times, Gothamist, Dallas Observer, Razorcake, and New York magazine among others. In the first two years of the band, they toured nine times.

In April 2006, Japanther teamed up with Aquadoom, a synchronized swimming group at New York University to play the Dangerous When Wet event at the school's Palladium Pool. On July 2, 2006, Japanther played under a plastic tarp in the rain at CitySol, an annual summer music and market series on Manhattan's East River waterfront (Stuyvesant Cove Park) to raise awareness for environmental issues.

Boys Who Say No
Add To My Artists

Toronto indie-rockers Boys Who Say No have been quickly building buzz with their playfully unpredictable brand of quirky party pop. In just a year the fresh-faced quartet has coalesced from a group of friends who jammed together into a tight outfit with a busy schedule.

Comprised of four friends who played together in different formations dating back to middle school, Boys Who Say No solidified their lineup in summer 2008 with Luke Correia-Damude on guitar, banjo, and vocals, Mike Lobel on synths, ukulele, and percussion, David Stein on bass, and Frank Cox-O'Connell on drums and banjo.

While all four members have impressive resumes outside of Boys Who Say No, the band keeps focused through a mutual love of songwriting, and a passion for playing music together-qualities that are reflected in both their shows and recordings.

The Boys' big break came in August, 2008 when the band was invited to record their debut EP with producers Dean Marino and Jay Sad at Toronto's Chemical Sound Studios (whose roster includes Tokyo Police Club, Born Ruffians, Death from above 1979, Attack in Black and ). The result was a six-song EP that has garnered critical praise like, "Boys Who Say No add [Read more]

(NOW Magazine)

Having recently shared the stage with indie heavyweights Cut Off Your Hands, Chad VanGaalen, Two Hours Traffic, FemBots, and Bry Webb (Constantines), Boys Who Say No blast out a frenetic live show that has been described as sounding "something between Will Sheff (Okkervil River) and early urgent Talking Heads." (FAZER Magazine)

Summer 2009 will see Boys Who Say No makes lots of new friends while they play showcases at Over The Top Fest, North By Northeast, and SummerWorks. The band is busy writing new material for a full-length, and touring as much as they can.
