Restorations - New LP Out Digitally NOW!

Tiny Engines (Tigers Jaw, CSTVT, Look Mexico) is excited to announce that Restorations' highly anticipated Self-Titled debut full-length is now out digitally via iTunes and Bandcamp, where it is also available for full streaming and can be purchased for a special price of $6 for the remainder of March.
Additionally, the 12" vinyl version of the record - which will see an April 19th release from the label - is now available for pre-order. Recorded by Algernon Cadwallader's Joe Reinhart (My Heart To Joy, Monument, Snowing) and mixed by Jonathan Low (Dr. Dog, Danielson, mewithoutYou), the LP will be limited to a pressing of 500 and feature gatefold jackets with art and design by Bruno Guerreiro.
Plenty of other exciting news on the Restorations front as well, particularly the Philadelphia band's recent feature with The Switchboard Sessions. This terrific website has taken a simple concept - providing a forum for great independent bands to perform two songs live over the telephone - and paired it with some of the most thoughtful, well-written interviews this side of the interwebs. The result is charming, intimate and wholly unique. Restorations' session is no different. Check out (and download) the band's telephone renditions of "Nonlocality" and "Canadian Club" and read about the quintet's evolution, its "ah-ha!" moment during the writing process and how these eight exceptional songs pretty much fell into the unbelievably lucky lap of Tiny Engines.
And don't forget that you can still download free mp3s for "Broken Vacuum" and "Neighborhood Song" courtesy of RCRD LBL and, respectively.
Finally, Restorations will be recording a brand new song for the COMPassion Project, a benefit compilation assembled by Parrot On A Porch Records. All proceeds will go directly to assist with tsunami relief efforts in Japan. Available exclusively at Bandcamp beginning on April 12th, the comp boasts an impressive lineup featuring the likes of Samiam, Jonah Matranga, Chamberlain, J. Robbins, Rival Schools, Codeseven, Frontier(s), Walter Schreifels, Kevin Devine, Joshua, Jamie Woolford, Gracer, Atlantic/Pacific and more.
On Restorations' Self-Titled debut full-length, the Philly quintet creates songs that are layered, tension-building monsters which lean heavily on a rhythm section that could probably knock a hole in the side of a Sherman tank. Still, that never takes away from the band’s ability to craft warm, stirring melodies, enduring hooks and dynamic song structures. Cascading guitars, pulsing waves of reverb and spacey flourishes are held together by Jon Loudon’s raspy-yet-tuneful growl. His delivery transmits confidence, wisdom and a bit of wear and tear – perhaps from years fronting underground DIY heroes Jena Berlin – but he also sings with a soulful, youthful exuberance that feels like he genuinely loves the process of creating music. If you’ve been searching for a thoughtful, nuanced take on punk and indie rock – and all the sub-genres they entail – Restorations might just be your new favorite band.
