Swearin’ is Allison Crutchfield, Kyle Gilbride, Jeff Bolt, and Amanda Bartley.

While it’s the first release from Swearin’ in five years, Fall into the Sun is a record that doesn’t try to obscure the passage of time but instead embraces it. “Getting older, your tastes change, and what you want to do changes,” says drummer Jeff Bolt. Those changes, though subtle, are impactful, making Fall into the Sun what Allison Crutchfield calls “the adult Swearin’ album.” It can be seen in songs like “Big Change,” where she says goodbye to Philly and the scene that she came up in, or in “Dogpile,” where Kyle Gilbride offers the line any aging punk can relate to: “By pure dumb luck I’ve gotten where I’m going.” Where Swearin’ used to pummel through their songs, on Fall into the Sun, they bask in what this newfound openness offers.


Tiny Blue Ghost is a band originating from New Paltz, NY. What started as a solo project by frontwoman Marissa Carroll her sophomore year of college quickly blossomed into a four-piece group not shy to make noise and blend genres into what the group affectionately calls “dream rock.” The band released their debut LP “Growing Pains” in October 2017. The album tackles different subjects one might experience while transitioning into adulthood, including mental health, nostalgia, personal traumas, and more.

The band’s overall sound can best be described with soaring vocal melodies and atmospheric guitar textures, drawing influence from bands such as Now, Now, Radiohead, and Death Cab for Cutie. Tiny Blue Ghost has played shows with noteable bands such as Tigers Jaw, Petal, Macseal, Nervous Dater, and Slingshot Dakota in venues surrounding the Hudson Valley/Catskill region. Marissa’s vocals can also be heard as backup harmonies on Diet Cig’s debut album “Swear I’m Good At This.”

Tiny Blue Ghost’s second album “Mend Again” is out now via Chatterbot Records. While holding some common themes in “Growing Pains” close, “Mend Again” is about unforgivingly loving yourself and learning to let go.


Guilt Mountain started as the bedroom recording experiment of Hudson Valley Scorpio Kate Larson, who wanted to prove to herself that she could create an album completely on her own.
