Artist of the Week: Pianos Become the Teeth

Written by MikeYabs

Fresh off a tour with La Dispute, Maryland’s own Pianos Become the Teeth is this week’s spotlight artist. Part of the newer wave of screamo/post rock that could clump them together with bands such as the afformentioned La Dispute, as well as Defeater and Touche Amore, PBTT have been leaving their mark on the music scene. Currently in the process of working on a new record for release (hopefully!) later this year, their previous full length effort, 2011’s The Lack Long After, packs an emotional punch from start to finish. A split single with Touche Amore in 2013 left fans wanting more material, which hopefully isn’t too long of a wait away.

Pianos Become The Teeth will be playing Skate and Surf on Sunday, May 18th.

Songs to check out: Hiding (From split with Touche Amore), I’ll Get By (From The Lack Long After)

Artist of the week: What’s Eating Gilbert

by MikeYabs

This week saw some new editions to the Skate and Surf lineup. How about New Found Glory on Sunday, eh? Sounds pretty good to me. You know what else sounds good? What’s Eating Gilbert on Saturday.

What’s Eating Gilbert is the solo effort of New Found Glory’s Chad Gilbert. Pulling influence from the popular music of the 50’s and 60’s, Gilbert goes in a drastically different direction than we’ve become accustomed to seeing him take with his full time act.

With 5 different 7” records under his belt, Gilbert brought a full band lineup into the studio in February to record a proper full length, which should be out later this year.

I managed to see What’s Eating Gilbert in action the last time they played in New Jersey, at Starland Ballroom in support of Yellowcard. The songs are all very fun, and have that “stuck in your head all day” kind of infection to the that will keep your toes tapping the next day at work.

What’s Eating Gilbert will be playing Skate and Surf on Saturday, May 17th.
