Hurry began less as a band and more as a man singing songs to himself in his apartment. Up until 2014, Hurry consisted exclusively of that one man--Matthew Scottoline -- joined by a revolving group of friends for performances, while doing all of the songwriting and recording on his own.

Hurry, which cites influence in Teenage Fanclub, Guided By Voices, The Bats, and Brian Wilson, remained a solo project until the release of their debut Everything/Nothing. Scottoline finally secured bandmates in cousins Rob and Joe Decarolis, who joined him for the recording of the band's first official record. Everything/Nothing was released on Hot Green Records in October of 2014, and the band went on to tour with everyone from Yuck to Beach Slang.

Hurry got roped into Lame-O Records when they recorded the song "Shake It Off" for their 2015 six-band split Strength In Weakness (also featuring Modern Baseball, Beach Slang and more). On April 29th, 2016, Hurry will release their spectacular indie-pop record Guided Meditation on Lame-O Records.

We've Signed The Pooches! Posted 11 Jan 2016

We're very very very excited to announce we've signed The Pooches out of Glasgow, Scotland! We'll be putting out their new EP Heart Attack on January 29th. You can check out the title track via Stereogum at the link below!

The Pooches started as the one-man home recording project of Jimmy Hindle during the summer of 2013 in Glasgow, Scotland. After a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund an album of 18 original songs, ‘Smoochin’ with the Pooches’ was self-released digitally via Bandcamp in late 2013. With it’s lo-fi pop charms being described as sounding ‘like Julian Casablancas fronting The Beach Boys’, it soon caught the attention of local label Gold Mold Records, who released it on limited edition tape in the UK, with it selling out pretty much straight away. The achieved top ten adds at over 20 college radio stations in the US. A further collection of home recordings - ‘One Man Dog’ - was also released in early 2015.

The band, now expanded to a 4 piece with Calvin Halliday on drums, Andy Kelly on guitar and Gavin Cormack on bass, have opened for Surfer Blood, Juan Wauters, Colleen Green, Craft Spells, Hop Along and more.

The new line-up recorded their debut EP, ‘Heart Attack’ in the summer of 2015 with Chris McCrory at Shady Lane Studios in Glasgow. 'Heart Attack' takes influence from the Stiff Records sound of bands like Any Trouble and Squeeze, whilst simultaneously carrying on the tradition of Glaswegian indie-pop legends The Pastels and Teenage Fanclub. In 2016, the EP will be released via Lame-O Records and Gnar Tapes in the US.

We've signed Lowercase Roses! Posted 19 Aug 2015

Hey! We've signed Lowercase Roses! ! To celebrate the news, we're teaming up with Stereophonodon Records for the first ever vinyl pressing of the band's self-titled debut EP. The official release date for the Lowercase Roses 7" is August 21st, but all orders through the Lame-O Records webstore will ship immediately. The band recently filmed a haunting session Live from Bad Racket in Cleveland Ohio. Click HERE to watch his haunting performance of "Boys." Grab the 7" at the link below!!

Lowercase Roses, the new project from Matthew Scheuermann, grew out of a change in scenery. Coming from Cleveland to the Philadelphia scene, Scheuermann began recording and performing the songs that would become his self-titled EP under the name Roses (later changed to Lowercase Roses). Reminiscent of the indie singer-songwriters of the late 90s, the Lowercase Roses EP is filled with hypnotizingly beautiful melodies. Like the artists that inspired him, Scheuermann packs each track with the kind of emotion and clever lyricism that instantly sticks.

With just an acoustic guitar and striking vocals, Lowercase Roses releases three songs that feel simultaneously completely unique and comfortably familiar. This charming contradiction has already begun winning hearts in the Philadelphia scene. With the first physical release under the name Lowercase Roses, Scheuermann starts off with the three perfect songs to re-introduce him to the world as a creative force in indie-rock songwriting.
