The Shadowboxers
The Shadowboxers
The Atlanta-based Shadowboxers have a passion for captivating lyrics, tight harmonies, and soulful vocals. Founding members Scott Tyler, Matt Lipkins, and Adam Hoffman experienced an almost-instantaneous musical compatibility when they first started jamming. Together with drummer Cole McSween and bassist Carlos Enamorado, they've forged a cohesive sound based on a shared reverence for the strong, taut harmonies of Simon & Garfunkel, D'Angelo, and The Beatles. This young band's unified sound has an R&B-soaked, smart perspective replete with an abundance of vocal talent and songwriting skill. In the short time the quintet has been playing together, The Shadowboxers have found a collective voice that is intelligent, soulful, and catchy.

Tiny Victories
Tiny Victories’ debut full-length album, Haunts, is full of memories. People you used to know. Rooms where you lived, streets you walked down. The lover you haven’t spoken to in years who still lives in your dreams. Because the past is never dead. It’s not even past.

Sometimes music is memory. The emotional memory of a songwriter, distilled into a way of viewing the world. Some songwriters are cartographers, mapping an inner landscape of hope and regrets. Each song is an invisible city, populated by ghosts. That is the land, and these are the people, drawn on by Tiny Victories’ songwriter and frontman, Greg Walters.

Tell your ghost to leave me alone—

I can’t sleep no more in my own home.

The surprise is that Tiny Victories’ music is often joyous, even celebratory. Synths and electronic squiggles crash against pounding beats in ecstatic, orgiastic rhythms. Lyrically, though, Tiny Victories' latest album is a compendium of love and loss. The contrast creates rooms of light and shadow (in “Scott & Zelda” or “Systems”) or the oceanic catharsis of a party at the end of the world (“Austin, TX” and “This Revolution”).

Haunts is a statement of purpose—and a point of arrival. The songwriting evolved in a more focused direction, with a tighter structure, building on a bedrock of experimental sonic architecture. Synth lines cut through through the dense underbrush of electronic soundscapes.

Tiny Victories' latest album was produced and mixed by industry veteran Alex Aldi (Passion Pit, Holy Ghost!) and mastered by Chris Gehringer (Yeasayer, Chairlift, Jay-Z).
