The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die
The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die
Connecticut-based band The World is a Beautiful Place & I am No Longer Afraid to Die has a new album Harmlessness available now. It is the band's second album and first with Epitaph.

If Harmlessness marks a new milestone for the band, and its foremost artistic achievement, it's also an album that spends time pondering the years that The World Is A Beautiful Place has spent finding its place. The title itself is a play on the band's first release, a gesture inspired by the return of founding member Tyler Bussey. Yet Derrick Shanholtzer-Dvorak also sees "Harmlessness" as a state to be achieved, an ethos that fits with all the open spirit of being "formless". In Shanholtzer-Dvorak's words, the goal is "to exist in harmlessness, doing no harm to those around you." It's a fitting idea for an album this devoted to beauty and humanity, and the search to find one in the other.

The group create their dense textured sound with multi-layered and heavily effected guitars as well as synthesizer, cello, and trumpet. In their idealistic maximalist world, more of everything is better.
Rozwell Kid
Rozwell Kid
Rozwell Kid is the rock'n'roll brainchild of Demon Beat drummer, Jordan Hudkins, who, with the help of his bandmates, creates music that honors the insouciant attitude of his LA post-grunge influences, without the sun-tanned decadence of some of his noise pop counterparts. Born and raised in West Virginia, Hudkins' landlocked upbringing is reflected perfectly on his soon-to-be-released, "Unmacho," which pairs music that bursts at the seams with restless energy and lyrics that grapple with the dark side of fun.

While playing drums and touring with The Demon Beat, Hudkins began writing his own songs, and in 2011, he recorded and self-released "Rozwell Kid LP". Drawing from a variety of musical influences, including 90's punk, Weezer, and the Broadway musicals he listened to as a kid, Hudkins' debut effort revels in its nostalgia, while showcasing Hudkins silly-in-all-seriousness writing style. In October of 2011, Hudkins hit the road with his newly assembled band, which includes Adam L. Meisterhans (also of Demon Beat) on lead guitar, Andrew LaCara on guitar and vox, Devin Donnelly on bass and vox, and Sean Hallock on drums.

In July of 2012, the band began phase two of the Rozwell Kid saga, recording "Unmacho" with David Klug in Pittsburgh. The new record has a familiar sound with a new story, told over the course of ten songs that don't let up for an instant. "Unmacho" is available February 19th, 2013
Mylets
Mylets
Mylets is a one man band helmed by Henry Kohen. He was signed to Sargent House in 2013, who then released "Retcon" which is an LP culled from three previously self-released EPS that he put out before the age of 17.

Mylets will release his debut full length for Sargent House in Fall of 2014. He has already done a full US Tour with label mates And So I Watch You From Afar and TTNG as well as a full European tour in 2013.
