RARE FUTURES
RARE FUTURES
RARE FUTURES (formerly known as HAPPY BODY SLOW BRAIN) is a GrooveRock band from New York City founded by journeyman musician, Matt Fazzi. It began as a side-project in late 2007 while with the band Facing New York, later being placed on the back-burner officially when he left them to join Taking Back Sunday for a short stint from 2008 to mid-2010. Following that, Fazzi returned to the project as his main pursuit and under the original moniker, HAPPY BODY SLOW BRAIN, the band self-released a full-length, Dreams Of Water (2010), and two EPs, SLEEPY (2012) and LIVE (2014) . Over the last several years while trying to establish HBSB, Fazzi filled the gaps touring with groups such as The Dear Hunter, Atlas Genius, Gavin Castleton Band, NK (North Korea), Into It Over It, and A Great Big Pile Of Leaves, deciding in late 2015 to fully refocus on his own music again with a renewed sense of spiritual purpose, a new record and a significant name change in mind.

RARE FUTURES sound meshes heavy prog-rock groove with 80's synthesizers and layers of rich melody and harmony, tipping their hat to groups like Mutemath, Tears For Fears, Jellyfish, Sade, and Soundgarden. Their new album This Is Your Brain On Love was independently released on 3.25.16 via Fazzi's own label CMG Cerebral Music Group partnered with InTheClouds Records. The band is rounded out by seasoned veteran multi-instrumentalists, Ari Sadowitz (Model Decoy / Heavy English / Ben Kenney Band) and Rich Bozek (Side Saddle / Saber Tooth Trio / Diazepam), and longtime Happy Body Slow Brain bassist, Jason Holthouser.
TWIN PONIES
TWIN PONIES
Twin Ponies is an alt/grunge rock band formed in Phoenix, AZ by Wayne Jones, Phillip Hanna, Jordan Tompkins and Jacob Lauxman in 2013.

The band describes their sound as a blend of 90s alt rock with obsess vocals, shifting meters, and unsolicited key changes.

Their 2015 release Friendly Pet Mass Graves further continues their bending of 90’s alternative rock in some unexpected directions.
