Honduras
Honduras
The story of Honduras isn't necessarily a new one, but if the internet age has taught us anything, new isn't always better. What was once the product of two kids from Columbia, MO simply trying to re-imagine themselves in New York City has grown to become one of the most promising acts coming out of Brooklyn's forever-fertile indie scene. Friends since childhood, Patrick Phillips (vocals/guitar) and Tyson Moore (guitar/vocals) found each other again in a Bushwick basement where they began writing much of what would become Honduras' early material, 2012's self-released Cahokia EP. That debut set Honduras in motion playing tirelessly around Brooklyn's busy DIY scene. After bringing in Josh Wehle to play drums, the band added a new bass player in Paul Lizarraga (the Denzels) to support the recent release of their breakout EP Morality Cuts via Black Bell Records.

The EP concisely exhibits the group's millennial take on early punk sensibilities (think Sex Pistols, Buzzcocks) with elements of noise and pop (a la Deerhunter, No Age) and has garnered them the attention of Noisey who declared their sound "tight, bristling" and Rolling Stone who nostalgically said it "recalls the gleeful nihilism of the Dead Boys." While picking up additional attention from serious tastemakers like Brooklyn Vegan, BULLETT, and NYLON, along the way, the group has shared stages like Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg with notable acts like Drowners and the Kaiser Chiefs over the past year. On stage the formula continues, where four good friends exhibit a savvy devil-may-care tightness and engaging stage presence that is both apropos to their evident influences and forever exciting to witness in a young and surging project. Honduras are certainly a product of their generation, but it's a timeless fact that you don't have to break the mold to break the stage.
Easy
Easy
Swedish indiepop group with members from Jönköping and Gothenburg.

In 1998 2 members of Easy left the band and 3 new guys came in. After all these line-up changes band decided to change their name to Fly. Their record was already in print, when some legal issues occured and band forced to return back to old Easy name.

Released ‘Magic Seed’ (Blast First) in 1991, which has a shoegaze-pop sound, and definitely influenced by House of Love and My Bloody Valentine. Seemed to disappear after that though - but resurfaced with ‘Sun Years’ a couple of years later. A curious album which saw them experimenting with other musical styles. They came back to release two more albums, most recently ‘Satellites’, but these were not widely available outside Scandinavia, and while they split up for a while, they are, as of 2010, back together. They played a festival in Sweden in the summer, performing the whole of ‘Magic Seed’, and have played a few small gigs, and released a new single in September 2010, ‘Its Ok to Cry’ through Playground Music Scandinavia.
