Loose Buttons


Loose Buttons are a group of lifelong New Yorkers lauded as their hometown's "best guitar-pop band" by Stereogum and "a new artist we're going mad for" by NME. On June 8, the four-piece are set to release their first new song since 2021 - "99 Secrets" - about learning to confront our own internal struggles by opening up to those around us. Over those past two years, their live shows have included playing a sold-out Webster Hall in their hometown, and selling out a headlining tour of the East Coast and LA once venues opened again. During this time, Loose Buttons' lead singer Eric Nizgretsky - a first-generation Ukrainian-American with Kyiv roots - has also organized a series of benefit shows to help the country's wounded and displaced, which have featured guests like Jonathan Toubin and Eugene Hutz. "99 Secrets" was written and recorded in the midst of that series with the fresh perspective it offered.



Welcome to the world of Talon. Dance, cry, scream, pine. 
 Taking lessons from guitar heroes Sleater-Kinney and St. Vincent and pop legends MUNA and Maggie Rogers, the Brooklyn-based band writes the soundtrack for a nineties movie about gay antics. Their debut EP "Not Dreams" is out June 16th.

54 Ultra


54 Ultra is a bedroom garage rock project based out of northern New Jersey. It is the solo project of singer, songwriter, and producer JohnAnthony.
