The Joiner Inners
Originally formed in 1996, The Joiner Inners, a combination of friendship, musical dexterity and volume, celebrate their best traits on “The Time is Now” (2007), a glorious journey through the band's best moments, extolling the virtues of the music that influenced them the most (Guided by Voices, the Who,
the Replacements, and Superchunk). Boiled and basted in an
over-heated basement for over a decade, the band's tightness and comraderies is apparent in would-be singles “Hidden Sector”,
“Song of Many Lyrics” and “Air Guitar and Dashboard Drums”, all of which evoke the best of musicians and friends, plodding angrily towards middle age and restricted circumstances. “The Time is Now” is, interestingly enough, timeless and anyone who wants to enjoy well-crafted music burnt at the ends with musical abandon simply needs to listen... now.
In 2008, now a trio, the band continued writing what would become their next album, “All Star Traction” (2012) much in the same pop rock style of “The Time Is Now”. The album features some more gems such as, “Separate Arts”, “Open Things”, and “Dynamite Horse”. Continuing on, the writing continued and in the winter of 2013, the bands final album, “House of Sound” (2013) was released. Initially an EP, the extended version includes some live recordings from that period as well. The Joiner Inners played their final show in July of 2013.
The Right Offs
"We're The Right Offs. We play rock 'n roll nice and loud. Connecticut is where we're from. When we speak we shout and when we play we entertain. Maybe it's art, maybe it's music, maybe it's just what we love. Nothing wasted; not one movement, syllable or glance. You'll see us coming out of the corner of your eye and we'll leave it to you to try and turn away."
