Continuing with some of my favs from the past year, I turn to Family portrait for today’s Morning Hype!. Formed out of a need for an opening band for some friends, I first heard the New Jersey natives in Think Skateboards Business As Usual video.

Impressive, and enough to log their name into the bands to keep an eye out for part of my brain. Scratch that: Just looked at their Facebook page and they seemingly played their “last show ever” at Sub A in Brooklyn. Too bad….
