Doylestown PA's Balance and Composure have returned and released Too Quick to Forgive, an EP that features two new songs - their first since 2017. The EP marks the band's first release for Memory Music and accompanies the announcement of four bi-coastal shows this summer.
You can watch the music video for leadoff track "Savior Mode," directed by band members Jon Simmons and Erik Petersen along with Britain Weyant (Bartees Strange, Webbed Wing).
You can pre-order vinyl and new Balance and Composure merch at the Memory Music Webstore now. This limited physical release features vinyl-only remixes of the two songs that make up this new EP, with Wicca Phase Springs Eternal remixing "Savior Mode" and Darcy Baylis remixing "Last to Know."
J.R. SLAYER's new five song EP "NOT ROTTEN" is out today on Memory Music! NOT ROTTEN is a five-track indie rock EP that tracks the experience of falling into earth-shattering love—the sort that safeguards its participants from the cruelty and cold of the world around them—and the simultaneous elation and fear that come from inhabiting such bliss. It’s about the possibilities that are unlocked when we care about and show up for others and ourselves in equal measure.
Stream the EP now and check out music videos for the title track "NOT ROTTEN" and "THE FADE OUT" below.

Fantasy Camp is the project of Jonah Kramer––known for his role as DJ for Wicca Phase Springs Eternal, the young multi-hyphenate grew up in the Wilkes-Barre, PA scene over the last decade and watched as bands like Title Fight and Tigers Jaw took on the world. He's been making music as Fantasy Camp since he was 16 but has never released a proper full-length project until now.
Casual Intimacy, the debut LP from Fantasy Camp, will be out on October 28 from Grammy-nominated producer Will Yip's label, Memory Music. Written, recorded, and produced entirely in Kramer's bedroom in late 2021 (and later mixed & mastered by Yip), the album's seven tracks punch far above their weight with rich, ethereal soundscapes, springboarding listeners from the bedroom into entire sonic worlds.
First single "Blood Moon" is out today with an accompanying video by Bob Sweeney. The song opens Casual Intimacy with a dark, pillowy sway, interpolating steely shoegaze, gauzy dream-pop, and lo-fi chamber pop for an intoxicating introduction.
Vinyl pre-orders are available now - grab casual intimacy on limited edition red vinyl limited to 500 copies along with a new hoodie and shirt.
