Motel TV - My Ice Cream Is Melting08.05.16 · Counter Intuitive Records · CIR003

"For the lack of a better word, Motel TV’s 2016 summer release, My Ice Cream is Melting, is overwhelmingly nostalgic. Nostalgia can manifest itself in a lot of things: the scent of the spring air, a song favored by a past lover or the sight of a regularly walked avenue. But no matter what, there is an element of sadness and longing that exists in an otherwise fond memory, and this is exactly what My Ice Cream is Melting captures. My Ice Cream is Melting is decidedly homey and familiar. It’s a soundtrack for the imperfect life, making the EP accessible, relatable and despite it all, rather pleasant." - Boston Hassle

Plainclothes - Dog Logic09.01.15 · Counter Intuitive Records · CIR002

"Plainclothes play a brief, fast paced brand of emo/punk that’s reminiscent of emo staples American Football and modern punk contemporaries Joyce Manor. The three-piece employs the use of intricate math inspired guitar parts on their debut album Dog Logic, which was released last year on Counter Intuitive Records. Its lyrics are a mature and honest look into their young lives, while analyzing the moments that helped shape them during their formative years. Plainclothes waste no time on the 18 minute record, packing songs less than two minutes long with intelligent reflections and references to philosophers such as Immanuel Kant." - The Deli Magazine

Bay Faction - Bay Faction09.29.15 · Counter Intuitive Records · CIR001

"I couldn’t identify one song where each instrument wasn’t contributing something wonderfully dark and reflective. Of the dark parts of life represented in these songs, to me it’s more of a mirror. The way we see the low points, the desperation in the singing comes across so passionately. This is band that knows how to express itself, and has come together to make an intense album." - Glory In Sound

"These cleanly delivered lamentations and blues based instrumentals weave together perfectly to create something distinct in today’s music scene. There’s no twinkle on here, no grand explosion of sorrow, just a dull and constant ache covered by a blues crafted haze." - Sputnik Music
