Constant Smiles, the collective led by Ben Jones, began in 2009 on his home of Martha’s Vineyard, inspired by the music scene centered around the island’s now defunct community record store, Aboveground Records. They made their live debut as a noise duo opening for Ralph White (Bad Livers) and, working in series, began churning out homemade releases influenced by friends, art film icons, and fellow musicians.
In the time since, Constant Smiles have amassed a discography a couple dozen releases deep, containing contributions from more than 50 members of its extended family. 2019’s synth-based full-length, John Waters, became a surprise hit in the blog world and helped the group to extend its reach. Their 2020 follow-up, Control, appeared on several notable year-end lists and caught the attention of outlets like Austin Town Hall who praised its “natural haunting sensation that seems to emanate from [the] speakers” upon pressing play.

Stuporwaffles is a psychedelic rock/blues band based in Indianapolis, IN. Their music is played typically in a four-piece arrangement of rhythm and lead guitar, bass, and drums, yet the musical versatility of the band members allows for occasional switching of instruments and arrangements. They blend the edge of grunge, the experimentation, the whimsy of psychedelia with a lovely chaser of blues soul. As such, the major influences of the Stuporwaffles are but not limited to: Soundgarden, Cream, King Gizzard, and The Grateful Dead.
