MYLITTLEBROTHER, based in Cumbria (Northern England), had been honing their live sound across the UK, with gigs including the British Sea Power-curated Krankenhaus festival, a headline slot at Kendal Calling, and gigs supporting the likes of Glasvegas and Juniore. The communal, celebratory energy of the live group is instantly winning : it was a mesmerizing set from the band in Liverpool back in 2016 that converted Big Stir Records founders Christina and Rex into permanent mlb fanatics – and that chemistry is all over Howl, the forthcoming album (available October 30 from Big Stir Records and available for pre-order). The album shares the title of the dark pop single, “Howl,” the music video for which just went live last week.

When D.C. venues were ready to reopen after COVID-19, indie pop duo GLOSSER was ready to perform. The two, Riley Fanning and Corbin Sheehan, formed the band pre-COVID out of a shared aesthetic vision and passion for music storytelling.
Their first album *DOWNER* was released in January 2023, however they have decided to release a [__deluxe version__](https://open.spotify.com/album/0KLORhtj3ohV4FtbdjoKu5?si=iNZX9fiZSm2M6V8pRdBkow) exactly one year later containing four new tracks – two remixes, a reimagined song, and a cover – that they are hoping will give it a second life and allow them to continue performing around the area.
The band explains that they have spent many shows opening for touring bands that traveled through D.C. “We made music and then venues started to open again,” Sheehan says. Rather than having the “typical grungy” D.C. band experience, they uniquely went straight to club shows.
