Emerging Seattle Bands: Tea Cozies; The Lonely Forest

Garage rock/British indie rock Tea Cozies aren't signed, which is a shame. The band consists two females and two males -- Jessi Reed, Brady Harvey, Jeff Anderson and Garrett Croxon -- and has its origins in Colorado, although Seattle now is home. The band released a 5-track EP in 2009, and then an LP entitled Hot Probs. The single below was released earlier this year and the group is working on their second LP.

"Dead Man's Sister", a download of which is available at Bandcamp

The Lonely Forest is a rock band from Anacortes, Washington, on the shores of Puget Sound. The members are singer/guitarist/keyboardist John Van Deusen, guitarist Tony Ruland, drummer Braydn Krueger, and bassist Eric Sturgeon, and they formed the band as teenagers in 2005. The band won a best new band competition, gigged extensively, played the Bumbershoot and Sasquatch festivals and played a sold out show at Seattles Showbox venue. They are signed to Trans Records, the label founded by Chris Walla, producer and a member of Death Cab for Cutie.
