Bear McGruff

Bear McGruff are a three piece from Missoula Montana. The band is made up of Ethan, Chris, Evan who have played or been involved with Cloony, The Whoopass Girls, Cat Heaven, King Elephant, Brad's Ex Girlfriends, Henry Bemis Is A Superhero, The Sky Looks Pissed and Out Of Character. The band existed when Ethan was in Missoula. Bear McGruff remind me a lot of Ethan's current project the Whoopass Girls but with a focus more on emo than on punk rock. Which I quite enjoy. The tape is going to be pressed by Carucage records apparently which is awesome.

Box Social - Unwound

Box Social are an internet two piece who just released their debut EP Unwound. The band consists of two people, Justice Claggett, responsible for vocals & lyrics as well as Casey VanAntwerp, responsible for everything else. They are from Jackson, MI & Nampa, ID and play a twinkly kind of emo with mostly yearning vocals though there are some awesome screams towards the end. There's nothing groundbreaking but if you enjoy twinkly emo this will be right up your alley. Justice also does vocals in Enchiridion whom I haven't heard yet but I assume are awesome.
