About the bands
GayGuy/StraightGuy [in the clouds records] 12:30
GayGuy/StraightGuy is a 2 piece rock band from Asbury Park, New Jersey. from their label
if you know nick & bob you know they’re 2 of the nicest guys you could ever spend your time with, after working with them on this release i got to see that not only are they great people but they aren’t afraid to put the work in… we’ve had many late nights of pizza and beer while cutting the jackets and making the vinyl. if it weren’t for their help there’s no way i would have been able to get all of this done on my own so quickly.
a few years back i was lucky enough to walk into the Saint in Asbury and catch their live set and for only being a 2 piece band the wall of sound they pump out is something you really have to experience. we were later introduced through mutual friends and they shared a rough mix of these songs with me, with each listen i became even more hooked. their appreciation of 90’s rock mixed with a modern groove is clear the album will officially drop on Cinco De Mayo & we will be throwing an official release party at House of Independents in Asbury Park as part of our 5 Year Anniversary celebration. you can stream the title track from the album in the player above.

Cyclone Static [lookingforalabel] 11:40
Catchy and Melodic Punk influenced Indie Rock. The official house band of the Jonathan LeVine Gallery. Cyclone Static whips around like a punk rock storm, throwing sparks and bursts of melodic energy. Their driving songs surge to life with waves of crashing guitar and percussion, pulled into focus by a deep undercurrent of emotion. The trio, comprised of James Salerno on guitar and lead vocals, John Mathias on bass and Jonathan LeVine on drums, produces sounds that are honest, economic and muscular. James sings with unfiltered passion, John provides a sturdy backbone of rhythm and LeVine tightens their songs with power and precision. Cyclone Static draws from and refines their best influences – late 70’s punk, mid 80’s hardcore, and early 90’s alternative rock – into raw, uninhibited music that captures their independent spirit and DIY ethos.
