Tee Pee Updates


Burgeoning Brooklyn buzz band ELKS will release its debut album Destined for the Sun on September 13 via NYC’s Tee Pee Records. Featuring an abstract conceptual theme chronicling “the history of a tribe of nomadic Space Vikings,” ELKS’ Destined for the Sun tells the tale of “peaceful inhabitants of a planet colonized by an expanding empire,” incorporating a myriad of strange sci-fi ephemera including a “super computer” at the end of the universe dubbed “The Wizard.” Recorded by Made Out of Babies guitarist Brendan Tobin at Brooklyn’s Translator Audio, the album captures every nuance of ELKS’ dynamic live spectacle and amps it up tenfold, resulting in the perfect sonic experience for fans of mind-bending modern metal.

Whirr – June 7″ PREORDER – limited to 250 copies on “coca cola bottle” green vinyl
Bay Area post-shoegaze sextet WHIRR has signed with NYC rock label Tee Pee Records. The band will enter a Northern California recording studio this August to lay down tracks for its full length debut and follow up to its recently released Distressor EP. The album will be preceded by a limited edition vinyl 7″ that will be issued this fall. WHIRR (formerly Whirl) generates suspenseful songs of soothing, razor sharp guitar textures backed by soft, cooling vocals. The band’s supercharged spirit rejuvenates the ’90s shoegaze sound, providing a widescreen update for the post-millennial era. WHIRR’s wall of lush guitars, breathy vocals, dreamy synth and thunderous drumming propel listening ears into a near-cinematic realm where instantly catchy melodies and emotional, enveloping atmospheres hang perfectly in the balance. The group’s celestial lean has been described as “if My Bloody Valentine decided to cooperate with Sonic Youth,” and has drawn comparison to influential acts such as Slowdive, Lush, Ride and The Cocteau Twins.
