All My Friends Hate Me

Los Angeles, CA
Founded in 2018 by Nashville-bred Bobby Banister, British transplant Beau M...cCarthy and later, Little Rock drummer Justin Kroger and bassist Xander Burmer from Seattle, All My Friends Hate Me is the self deprecating, sarcastic lovechild of punk riffs and a lifetime of bad relationships. The idea of All My Friends Hate Me was sitting at the bottom of a shitty bottle of whiskey at an industry party Bobby was dragged to and Beau snuck into. Soon after Beau moved to LA, SoundCloud rap took over the cultural zeitgeist, and Bobby knew he had to do something, despite telling himself he would never start a band again. AMFHM released their first single on February 22nd, appropriately titled “Start Again”, as each member has played in touring bands before, ironically, moving LA to create something real. Throughout 2019, All My Friends Hate Me released four singles and a few sketchy music videos before releasing their debut album, “Metal Butterflies” on November 29, 2019. Read More

The Bad Man

Minneapolis, MN
Since forming in 2016, The Bad Man has built a reputation as one of Minneap...olis’ hardest working bands, steadily performing live with pure energy and relentless adrenaline. Fronted by singer Peter Memorich—one of the Twins Cities’ “most dynamic and devilish rock ’n’ roll frontmen” (Chris Riemenschneider, Star Tribune)—The Bad Man is driven by Patrick Davis’ mad-scientist guitar work, the stomp of Warren “The Dog” Peterson’s bass, Ben Hintz’ jumping-jack sax, and Joe Ramm’s rocksteady backbeat. The Bad Man’s two albums — Aint Clean (2017) and Laughing With Bad Teeth (2018) — stay true to the band’s pub rock roots while reflecting their circus of influences. The music is unabashedly undefined — firmly anchored in a wealth of rock-and-roll sweat, yet delivering a brand new strut that’s uninhibited and addictively electric. Named a Best New Band of 2017 by First Avenue, and City Pages Picked to Click in 2018, The Bad Man is best known for their unpredictable, loud, and rowdy performances. Throughout their career, they’ve headlined many of the Twin Cities’ premier clubs and festivals as well as supported major acts, including Har Mar Superstar, Foster The People, and Soul Asylum.

Big Search

Los Angeles, CA
Big Search’s "Slow Fascination" traces the arc of a marriage ending throu...gh a period of solo travel, insomnia and house sitting in LA. A city forever in a season-less time warp, invisibly hurtling toward an unnamed singularity, it can mess with your head. But this is where Matt Popieluch has lived and made music for over a decade, weaving in and out of odd jobs, relationships, and bands, writing songs along the way. While his previous album Life Dollars, was focused on the 12 string guitar, Slow Fascination is centered around piano, harpsichord and synthesizers, and finds him in between landings, uncovering plots in subconscious realms. Each song a blurry vision of mid 30’s existential mutiny. In addition to trusted Big Search players Garrett Ray, Carl Harders and Toby Ernest, Matt enlisted guest vocals from Ed Droste, James Mercer and Kacey Johansing, and collaborated on single "Stillness In The Air" with Matthew Compton (of Electric Guest).

Billy Raffoul

Leamington, CANADA
Billy Raffoul’s anthemic debut single “Driver” serves as a potent cal...ling card for the 22-year-old singer, songwriter, and musician. His signature sound is a rough-hewn, low-timbered rock and roll that nods to the likes of Jeff Buckley, Neil Young, and Joe Cocker, and is powered by Raffoul’s gravelly, soulful voice and deeply felt lyrics. “That’s one thing for me — a song needs to be about something I’ve experienced or something someone close to me is going through,” Raffoul says of his sources of inspiration. “I find myself going back to moments of time from the past, picking apart these little experiences and building them into bigger things. I want people to know that the songs are genuine, that they've been lived in.” “Driver” is one of those lived-in songs. It was inspired by his family picking up a hitchhiker one night after Raffoul and his musician father Jody played a gig on Pelee Island in the middle of Lake Erie. “This guy was really out of it, so he ended up staying with us for a few hours,” Raffoul says. The following weekend Raffoul told his story of the hitchhiker to songwriter Simon Wilcox and songwriter-producer Nolan Lambroza during a writing session in Los Angele Read More

The Blowies

Austin, TX
The swirl of mass media, political intrigue, evolving technology and “lik...es” of the last few years have turned our world into one of the extremes. Faster than you can say whiplash, we’ve already been consumed by the latest scandal, crisis or moral indignation. This rollercoaster ride has wrought a cascade of absurdities and a punk act whose very mission is to call them out one-by-one in the only apt way imaginable; via absurdity. Ladies and Gents, one and all – The Blowies! Formed in Austin – Texas, Tucker Jameson and Samuel Thompson met in 2015 on the astral plane performing in other musical projects until the deafening political climate made them realize that their words could not be withheld and The Blowies were born. Armed with a sharp wit and the basics (guitars, drums, bass), the duo express their ideas bluntly, humorously and enthusiastically. The band’s forthcoming debut LP “The Blowies Care” was recorded at Jim Eno’s (Spoon) vaunted studio Public Hi-Fi, mixed and engineered by Max Lorenzen and mastered by GRAMMY nominee Jeff Lipton at Peerless Mastering. The record delivers high energy punk-rock that is guaranteed to stick in your head like “gum on yer boot." Read More

Founded in late 2014 by four acquisitive ascetics, they quickly bloomed into a multi-national sonic powerhouse, focusing their expressive musical talents on a completely original sound reminiscent of the abstract wit of MF DOOM, zany dorkiness of The B-52's, epic arrangements of Ennio Morricone, and funky grooves of Jamiroquai, all culminating in a distinct sound that’s been described as “Zappa meets OutKast”. The band has been recognized for their virtuosic musicianship & songwriting as well as their live shows, “an absurdist splatter of funk-rock, hip-hop, and jazz” that "sets audiences ablaze with their psychedelic Monty Python tongue-in-cheek humor and bombastic energy".

Yet, always an artist who lets his creative urges dictate his career arc, this seasoned singer-songwriter was in no hurry, and the album is a the stronger for it. “I only need these songs when I need ‘em for me,” he mulls, kicking back in what he calls his “little place in the woods” in Silvermine, CT. “So I tend to wait until there’s something in my head that I love and that I feel like, ooh, I would like be on stage and sing that for people.” There’s a refreshingly pure, utterly uncynical air about a chat with Berardo.

The universal theme of longing provides a cohesive thread to Invisible Lines. Opener “Runaway Stare” summons upbeat resilience in the face of soul-crushing forces that “leave you nothing but dreams of a new life.” Steel guitarist Marty Muse from Robert Earl Keen’s touring band adds to the doleful indecision of “Further I Run,” while “Maybe I Love You” basks in the warmth of Springsteen-style horns arranged by saxophonist Russell Haight. The record was recorded quickly, so as to capture a “live” energy, and features bassist Andrew Duplantis (Son Volt, Bob Mould, Meat Puppets) and drummer George Duron (Roky Erickson, Jon Dee Graham, Dumptruck).

Spicewood, TX
Katy Kirby is a songwriter and indie rock practitioner with a writerly focu...s on unspoken rules, misunderstandings of all kinds, and boredom. Her debut album, Cool Dry Place is set for release on Keeled Scales in September 2020. Kirby was born, raised, and homeschooled by two ex-cheerleaders in small-town Texas, where she started singing in church amidst the soaring, pasteurized-pop choruses of evangelical worship services. After high school, Kirby moved to Nashville, where she managed to graduate college with a rapidly expanding circle of artistic allies, an amorphous collection of leftist beliefs, and a few handfuls of songs. After a series of painful failures to complete a record that reflected the temperament of those songs, Kirby finally turned to dear friends and co-conspirators to form a band capable of constructing a satisfying full length. Kirby and co. spent a year carving out spare time to record Cool Dry Place in living rooms and bedroom studios; debating, revising and tightening each song almost to the point of absurdity and at times starting over from scratch. Tracking was finally completed over Thanksgiving 2019 at Kirby’s childhood home outside of Austin. Read More

Tony Visconti has been hailed as one of the most important producers in the... history of Rock and Pop. "Bang A Gong (Get It On)" and “Cosmic Dancer” by T. Rex are true cornerstones of rock and roll.

TRI4TH

Shibuya, JAPAN
TRI4TH Members Takao Ito (drums) Yusuke Orita (trumpet) Junnosuke Fujita (...saxophone) Tomitaka Sekiya (bass) Daisuke Takeuchi (keyboards) TRI4TH is a jazz quintet formed in Tokyo in 2006. Unlike your ordinary jazz band, this one is composed of a horn section that dances all over the stage, a bassist that throws his upright bass into the air as he plays, a fast and precise keyboardist, and a drummer who really knows how to hype up a crowd. Known for their electrifying performance, they have been selling out venues and playing at the most prestigious music festivals such as Franceʼs Jazz Vienne, Denmarkʼs Copenhagen Jazz festival, and Japanʼs Summer Sonic. Itʼd actually be a gross understatement on their talent to say they are “just a jazz band”. They bring an interesting mixture of vastly contrasting genres such as punk, rock, ska, and many other. You can hear their diversity in their cover of RANCIDʼs Time Bomb. TRI4TH is definitely one of the must see bands in Japan. Read More

The Walks of Life

Los Angeles, CA
The Walks of Life are inspired by conversation—the words and emotions tha...t surround and envelope us all each day, the meanings and reactions to interpersonal relationships on a real level. These words are the building blocks of their sound, allowing each chord, each sentence, each syllable to penetrate the gut and twist the heart with a unique blend of dark wave synth pop and golden era rock and roll. Founded by Sam Marine in early 2019, the band is an extension of what Sam has continued to expand upon throughout his musical career—a marriage of electric harmony and relevant lyrics that lives, evolves, grows, and walks with us down every road. After cutting his teeth in the legendary Gainesville music scene, Sam ventured to New York & now Los Angeles, recording records along the way. Sam's recent release, Big Dark City (2017) gained critical acclaim—but it’s Sam's new project, The Walks of Life, which has him hitting his stride as a songwriter and visionary. Sam's music is a constantly expanding map of personal evolution, destruction, and rediscovery. Build a sound. Tear it down. Rebuild with the most valuable pieces left, the things you can’t live without, then create & redefine. Read More

Zen Bamboo

Montreal, CANADA
Zen Bamboo is a rock and roll band from Saint-Lambert, Quebec. It is compri...sed of four well-mannered yet very impolite boys. They befriended each other in the schoolyard, brought together by a common appreciation for causing commotions. Despite their young age, they have collected an impressive collection of medals, including but not limited to four EPs released in a record time, appraisal from media outlets from all over, as well as two performances at the Montreal Francofolies. Zen Bamboo is grunge. It’s like rock, but much cuter and vicious. It is danced and it is cried. Their principle goes as follows: to create songs that speak simultaneously to the brain, the reproductive organs, and the heart. So try out Zen Bamboo at a venue near you. They will talk shit on everything that tears you apart. Read More
