Tall Ships are a three-piece from Brighton, UK, whose intricate music twists and turns to become serpentine-like math rock. Made up of Ric Phethean, Jamie Bush and Matt Parker, the band’s epic, layered sound has drawn comparisons to Foals and Battles, and they’ve shared the stage with bands like Los Campesinos! and We Are Scientists.
Brooklyn’s Spanish Prisoners play swirling, multi-layered indie rock full of airy, glowing pop melodies tangled up in fuzzy, trembling reverb. The four-piece — made up of Leo Maymind, Mike DiSanto, James Higgs, and Amberly Hungerford — have taken their dreamy psychedelic music on the road with the likes of Foals, The Rosebuds, and John Vanderslice. Gold Fools, their self-released record, was one of NPR’s “Five Best Bandcamp Albums of 2011.”
