On Hiatus

American Myth Recordings began as a project run out of an apartment in Brooklyn. Though short lived as an active company, the label and those behind it had some incredible successes bringing great music to the world through exposure for its artists in Rolling Stone, NPR, Spin, American Songwriter, Paste Magazine, Under The Radar, MTV, Nylon, the Carson Daly show and many other national outlets.

The label is currently on hiatus but you can read periodic updates on our alumni here from time to time as well periodic posts about which new artists we’re currently enjoying.

Standard Fare

Pepi Ginsberg — “The Waterline”

Stunning vocals twinged with slightly minor a cappella notes make Pepi Ginsberg‘s style all her own, as is her tendency to write admirable prose in her bathtub. “The Waterline” is a few years aged, but Pepi plays Brooklyn’s Cameo Gallery tonight and suggests that she may offer a taste of some new tracks.

Konnichiwa — “Cryosphere”

Off the frenetic super-synth duo’s new album from March is “Cryosphere,” like GAMES in a running-from-a-panther sort of way, but this time, you’re jazzercizing.

The pair play Saint Vitus Bar in Greenpoint tonight!

The Beets – “Time Brought Age”

This Jackson Heights-birthed band has been around the bend, but they continue to impress with their ’60s/garage mashup style that has a range of style: all the swoons of “I Think I Might’ve Built A Horse” and that faded pool party vibe of “Pick Another Corner.”

If scratchy witnesses to long-gone times, The Beets‘ tunes are still entirely fresh.

Happiest Lion — “Sacred Valley, Holy Water”

This unsigned, Boston-based Happiest Lion makes folksy twangs partnered with sensitive poetry. A bit Akron/Family-esque, they’re guaranteed to get you shakin’ your mane.
