Swimming Like Minnows
The “Stop whining about Grown Ups/Snowing/etc. and check out these super sick bands” compilation.

Shark Bait - Hailing from Louisiana, Shark Bait combines twinkly goodness, post-rock, and blues with screaming verses and sing-along choruses.

Family Might - Baller pop-punk emo band from St. Louis. The definition of ‘Cap’n Jazz cover band”.

Sunday League - UK band that takes a lil from The P. Ring, lil from the Cap’n, and a lil from everything else.

Cycle To - Algernon Cadwallader with beard vocals and if they were from France.

Badgerhunt - More St. Louis jams, really goofy and fun sing-alongs are equally matched by the stories of broken hearts and friendships.

Costumes - Promise Ring-esque pop punk from the dirty south.

Legs Like Tree Trunks - Super mathy emo from Philly. You already know it’s great.

Pessoa - Boss pop punk/”power indie” band from somewhere in Indiana. All the releases are solid.

Marital Roles - Screamo band with some pretty twinkle parts here and there. Cool as hell.

coate - Noodles around real smooth like. I don’t know if they have a good following yet, but they do deserve it.

Loud? - More Promise Ring worship, why aren’t these types of bands more popular? Seriously to great.

Old Pine - So much Algernon worship. So fuckin good.

Quinceañera - Cap’n Jazz reborn, but with even worse vocals!

Small Talk - Pretty much if you like American Football and No Idea Records, you’ll fall in love.
