Here’s your optimistic take on this fine, super warm hump day: it’s technically summer until September 21. We’ve had quite the busy summer here at Shorewave Haus with a smattering of shows at our space (including a high powered set from DC’s Shark Week, gorgeous indie pop from Brooklyn’s Honey Wild and the most heartfelt songs the haus has seen from Howth‘s lead singer Carl Creighton) while also prepping for Shorewave Records’ first releases ever this fall.
What Model Citizens has been busy recording this summer, with just a couple of shows interspersed. They’ve got some shows being worked out for the fall which we’re pretty pumped about, though. WMC’s third full-length will be coming via Shorewave (and Tough Sluts!) in late fall. They released a single and a video, “Coming For Me” on May 31 and that one’s been picking up some swell blog buzz including a feature on AltSounds, a Swedish blog called Death Electro and even a mention on Impose. Do yourself a favor and watch the video yourself.
Changes are abound in The Roads-land and while we can’t reveal them yet, we can say that we’re excited for what the future’s going to come for them. Their bassist (and Shorewave Haus co-conspirator) Justin Ferraro, who has his own swell singer/songwriter project, just released a swell EP entitled “The Graves Light” which sheds light into what the bedroom folkster spends his spare time doing.

CMJ is right around the corner and we’ll be able to reveal our plans for the music marathon very soon. We’re currently in talks with a couple of other acts, so there is definitely lots more news — and our very first physical products — forthcoming.
More gigs at Shorewave Haus are coming at you this month and next, starting with a BBQ on Saturday, an acoustic night featuring Ryan Egan of The Ugly Club (profiled via AltSounds here in 2012) on the 20th and lots more in the works for October.
