                        Sunsquabi

                        It all began in 2011 when guitarist Kevin Donohue and bassist Andrew Clymer broke away from their hip-hop roots and decided that sample-based electronic music simply wasn’t enough. The Boulder duo set out to find their own blend of live instrumentation and production, which would lead to the creation of SunSquabi. The group very quickly gained notoriety in the Denver/Boulder area and performed their first show at Red Rocks Amphitheater in June 2011 (Global Dance Festival). Shortly thereafter, drummer and Boston native Chris Anderson joined the group and inspired the group to even further seek the limitless potential of the live-electronic realm.
                        Over the past two years, SunSquabi has performed at some of the country’s most notable music festivals (Wakarusa, Summer Camp, Sonic Bloom, Snowball, SXSW and more). The trio has been consistently touring the U.S. since May 2012, and rapidly gaining recognition from the ever-evolving EDM and Livetronica markets. SunSquabi has shared the stage with Big Gigantic, Pretty Lights, GriZ, Murphy of STS9, Up Until Now, Two Fresh, Conspirator, Michal Menert, Boombox, The Floozies, Archnemesis, Break Science, Minnesota, Ghostland Observatory and many more.
                        The group is currently recording a new EP, with four previous releases and a 17-track LP titled “Fundamental Interaction” (Nov. 2013). Constantly on the studio grind, SunSquabi is always striving to change and mature their sound, and to continue to break down the expectations of what a “Live-Electronic” band should be. A recent overhaul on the live set has propelled the group into 2014, with plans to tour all over the U.S. They will be making appearances at several major festivals this Summer, with an album release planned for late Summer 2014.

                        A six-piece acoustic project that includes aspects of multiple genres, combining bluegrass, rock n roll, folk, jazz, and blues. The sound is centered around the powerful young voice of Miss Bayley Kate Hartman. The group features its own original songwriting while blending in a melody of eclectic covers.

                        Formed in late 2010, the group takes its name from the motto of Lawrence, Kansas: From Ashes to Immortality....as a dedication to the rebirth of acoustic music. A crew of seasoned players and occasional guest artists keeps the sound fresh, danceable, and full of story.

                            The fire rages on for the powerhouse trio from Kansas, Split Lip Rayfield (SLR), as they celebrate the release of their new record, "I’ll Be Around." The new album showcases the songwriting talents of mandolin player Wayne Gottstine and banjo player Eric Mardis, tied together by the harmony and deep-bass licks of Jeff Eaton. Such songs as "Aces High," "Heart of Darkness," and "The High Price of Necromancy" will take listeners on a journey of love, loss, change, and dark powers, as they discover what lies in the mysterious minds of SLR. The song for which the album is named, "I’ll Be Around," serves as a tribute to the band’s fallen teammate Kirk Rundstrom, whose influence on the band and its path was great. Rundstrom’s legacy continues to live on in the new album and also the band itself as every live show is dedicated to his memory. Split Lip Rayfield has carved out their own genre of music with their unique sound and instrumentation. Often described as a mix of bluegrass and country with an accent of metal, no other band delivers the experience of the homemade gas-tank bass played by Jeff Eaton, sets the mandolin strings on fire like Wayne Gottstine, or makes the banjo sing like Eric Mardis. Together, they burn up speakers and stages alike providing an unforgettable experience.

                            Hailing from the rolling hills of Kansas, Tyler Gregory can regularly be found busking on city streets with his deep voice and steam-powered melodies bouncing off the street-side architecture. His sturdy songcraft takes cues from WWII-era blues bellowers like Leadbelly and Son House.

                            Gregory's mix of blues and roots music howls with a sense of passion and freedom. Singing songs portraying stories of travel, land, and the meaning of simplicity, Gregory goes full force on his guitar/stomp-box live performance arrangements.

                                Not a Planet

                                “…Step into the cage, the spectacle, the few, the proud, the strange…” writes Nathan Corsi, the guitarist, singer, and wordsmith of Not A Planet. Corsi’s carefully crafted and emotionally charged lyrics sync perfectly with the swirling harmonies sung by Liam Sumnicht (drums) and Bill Sturges (bass). The songs unabashedly culminate in a blend of 60’s pop, east coast indie and the blues of the north.

                                An Akron, Ohio native, Corsi’s musical tastes and influences grew in the same fertile soil that reaped rock and roll innovators like the James Gang, Devo, the Pretenders and the Black Keys. Moving to Kansas City, by way of New York, Corsi met local music-enthusiast poster child and 96.5 the Buzz radio personality, Liam Sumnicht in 2010. With their powers combined, they immediately booked their first tour while Sumnicht simultaneously navigated Corsi throughout the KC music scene.

                                Extensive touring to the east coast and back in the belly of their (t)rusty van, “Trudy”, Corsi and Sumnicht were accompanied by various and sundry bass players while their bond as bandmates and fellow artists grew stronger. Ripe and ready for a permanent solution, in the winter of 2012, they welcomed a bundle of joy, William “Pretty-Boy” Sturges, with open arms. William’s unmatched joie de vivre made him a natural fit for NAP. A skillful stylist, Sturges’ bass became the glue that bound Not A Planet’s signature sound. Their first release, the NAP Sack EP, was seven tracks gleaned from a scrapped full-length recording. Latecomer, Sturges’ bass tracks were overdubbed, and the songs remixed by Producer Michael Stout of the Beautiful Bodies.

                                The joy of connection and creating original, honest art compels the trio to bring a dreamscape collaborative to their audience. Once again working alongside Stout, the Not a Planet debut LP concept album explores life, love, grief and the powerful visions of our collective nocturnal dream world.

                                Pleased as punch to have been in the top five nominated for “best indie rock song in 2012” by the Independent Music Awards for their song, Turn Me On (NAP Sack EP), and to have shared the stage with amazing bands like ZZ Ward, Seawolf, Free Energy, Maps and Atlases, Bright Light Social Hour, Ha Ha Tonka, The Dirty Heads, Flogging Molly and Antennas Up.

                                X were the quintessential L.A. punk rockers before they grew into a world-class rock & roll band and live band; however, enthusiasm for their unique, intelligent and humorous work never quite reached critical mass.

                                Formed in 1977 after songwriter and bassist John Doe (b. Feb. 24, 1956) met (and later married) Exene Cervenka (b. Feb. 1, 1956) at a Venice poetry workshop, with rockabilly veteran Billy Zoom (b. Feb. 20, 194?) on guitar and D.J. Bonebrake (b. Dec. 8, 1955) on drums, the band garnered an immediate following. "Discovered" by ex-Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek, he took the band into the studio for the recording of Los Angeles in 1980. It was curious, at a time when punks were supposed to hate hippies, that X's merging with an ex-Door was not only tolerated, but earned them stature as California's preeminent punk band when the record earned across-the-board raves. 1981 saw the release of the similarly punked-up Wild Gift, while their 1982 album, Under the Big Black Sun, began what would be a long career in merging hard rock, country and folk into their fiery mix. The band successfully began to mix in their populist politics with an eye toward matters of the heart.

                                As the band began to reach wider audiences, both Doe and Cervenka enjoyed outside careers in the arts — he as an actor in films like Great Balls of Fire and Roadside Prophets, and she as a poet and spoken-word artist, collaborating with Lydia Lunch and Wanda Coleman.

                                In 1983, the rootsy songs on More Fun in the New World lent themselves to acoustic performances which the band had taken to trying live. They took it one step further on their side project, the Knitters (with Dave Alvin) which yielded one Slash album, Poor Little Critter in the Road, in 1985. Ain't Love Grand was a harder rock album in 1986 and was followed by Zoom's departure. He was momentarily replaced by Alvin, but for recording purposes, the band recruited Tony Gilkyson (formerly of Lone Justice) for See How We Are, the band's most decidedly hard-rock record in the catalog. Gilkyson stayed for the recording Live at the Whisky A Go-Go in 1988 before the band took some much-needed time off, although they never broke up. In the interim, Doe and Cervenka had since divorced, and the pair continued to work as solo artists, releasing Cervenka's Old Wives Tales (Rhino, 1989) and Running Sacred (1990) and Doe's Meet John Doe for Geffen in 1990.

                                By 1993, the band got together for the recording of Hey Zeus!, a collection of new songs, but the response was underwhelming, and it was back to solo work. Doe released Kissingsohard for Rhino in 1995. Exene also released Surface to Air Serpents for the 2.13.61 label, as well as a reading of the Unabomber Manifesto, after changing her name to Cervenkova. During their frequent hiatuses, X would occasionally appear in Los Angeles and San Francisco and during one stay, recorded a live album in San Francisco in 1995, Unclogged, and self-released it. Cervenkova's latest project is Auntie Christ with Bonebrake and Matt Freeman of Rancid. Gilkyson also works as a solo artist. X also appeared in three films: Penelope Spheeris' punk documentary The Decline of Western Civilization, Urgh! A Music War, and a documentary of their lives and times, The Unheard Music. Beginning in 1998, founding member Billy Zoom returned to the fold for a series of on-again/off-again shows and limited touring; a pair of 2004 Los Angeles concerts were recorded and videotaped for Live in Los Angeles, released both as an audio CD and video DVD in the spring of 2005.

                                FIDLAR - A biography

                                "Thanks for coming, man. Want some bum juice?"

                                "What the fuck is in this shit?"

                                "Tampico and Everclear. It's pretty gross."

                                When they started in 2009, seeing FIDLAR meant showing up to a house party and eventually having this exchange with one of them. Zac Carper, The bands guitarist and singer (well, one of 'em) would hand you a red cup , throw an arm around your neck and probably end up blurting out how fucked up he was. Their set list would read more like a grocery list of party supplies than a list of songs: "Cocaine. Cheap Beer. Chinese weed. Four Loko."

                                After a few years of being a band Zac still plugs in his pedals attached to a skate deck ("Pedal board", get it?) and says "Hi We're FIDLAR: F-I-D-L-A-R. It means 'Fuck It Dog, Life's a Risk". Seeing a FIDLAR set consists of drinking and dancing with people that are twice as drunk as you are while the band rips through songs about what they know best: The girl doesn't call, my ex is a whore, I lost my phone, my car is a piece of shit, my friends are pieces of shit, I do too many drugs, I'm really awkward, I love Del Taco.

                                FIDLAR is Zac Carper, Elvis Kuehn, Brandon Schwartzel, and Max Kuehn. Elvis and Zac met at Kingsize Soundlabs in LA and recorded a ton of demos with the band before playing a live show. Their first show was on a FMLY bike ride at a skatepark in Culver City. Three years later the band has played with Black Lips, OFF!, Japanther and toured with The Hives. They've released two EP's and just got back from touring Europe.

                                Listening to them, you can tell that the band did their homework on punk rock and seem dead set on inflicting lessons on anyone willing to listen. Any given song will give you a Germs influenced guitar solo, the catchy "Ooo's" and "Ah's" of The Misfits , and lyrics in the same family as Black Flag's "Six Pack" and "TV Party" . On the same token they can just as easily be compared to any of the bands they cover (Blink 182, FEAR, CCR, Warron Zevon), yet it all comes across entirely their own: Surfier, Faster, more fuzzed out, more personal and a lot more drunk.

                                FIDLAR's first LP is coming out via Mom + Pop and Wichita recordings. Recorded at their home studio, The album is set to be 14 tracks long and out January 22nd. FIDLAR are your dumbass friends that find a beer, scrape the shit off their shoes, and tell you how the hardest thing about waking up late and trying not to fuck up your life is having to do it with no job, no money and everyone bumming your cigarettes.

                                  Albert Hammond Jr.

                                  The kernels of this new full length began with his five-song strong EP, AHJ, released on Julian Casablancas’ label, Cult Records, back in October 2013. AHJ showcased a bolder stance, his vocals are deeper, pulled to the fore, with less effects applied, each song is anchored by a more muscular rhythm section. Crucially, his approach to music has shifted; he’s flipped the page.

                                  “I feel like my writing, for the most part, has been emotion and excitement and I just ran with it and where it stopped, I let it be—either due to being fucked up or laziness or whatever,” he says. This time around his compositions were more sharply honed, fired by a desire to write and rework his music until he was 100 percent satisfied. Additionally these songs were brought into focus with the help of Grammy-winning producer Gus Oberg—who’s worked extensively with The Strokes and happens to be one of Hammond Jr.’s closest friends; he was the album’s benevolent taskmaster.

                                  “If I wasn’t getting it right he’d make me do it over and over and over again,” he recalls. “He was really hard on me—harder than he’s ever been. It was fun though, I’m not complaining. If anything, it’s nice to have someone who pushes you and I could tell how excited he was about it.”

                                  Initial sessions for Momentary Masters began as a three-day stint in June 2014, an experimental getaway to test the water with his new band. Having established a solid unit touring the AHJ EP, he was keen to see how Hammarsing Kharhmar (the frontman of Mon Khmer; who’s been playing guitar with Hammond Jr. since 2008), guitarist Mikey Hart (Bleachers), bassist Jordan Brooks, and drummer Jeremy Gustin (Delicate Steve, Marc Ribot), would work together on his new material. Along with Oberg they convened at Hammond Jr.’s home in upstate New York, a converted barn he calls One Way Studios became their HQ. The space is half gearhead heaven, half welcoming living room, with high ceilings and windows that look out onto the woods. First up: working through demos for “Born Slippy,” “Caught By My Shadow,” and “Drunched in Crumbs.”

                                  The sessions were extremely relaxed—they’d wake up, go for a run, play frisbee, maybe chop some wood, and then get down to it. Work days were followed by big family-style dinners cooked up in the evenings by Hammond Jr. and his wife Justyna; they’d all unwind watching John Oliver, Game of Thrones, or Boardwalk Empire. It was this summer camp-style environment that encouraged space for creativity and collaboration, which continued when they returned in September to lay down the rest of the record. (Apart from Bob Dylan cover, “Don’t Think Twice” which, with addition of a few overdubs, remains largely in its original, bedroom-demoed form.) The result offers a new kind of dynamism: you can hear it in “Power Hungry,” with its Morricone-esque grooves and a Mellotron manipulated to sound like violins; or in the aggressive stomp and anxiety-inducing guitars of “Caught By My Shadow.” Even on “Side Boob”—titled so because, hey, why not celebrate a good thing?—there’s a jittery energy that leaves the listener excited.

                                  With the instrumentals largely complete, it was time for Hammond Jr. to retreat and write melodies, pouring over notebooks filled with impressionistic scraps, observations, and oxymorons, which he set about stitching together in lyrical form. The presence of these notebooks at all is thanks to a friend whose influence imperceptibly threads through much of Momentary Masters. A voracious reader herself who was constantly jotting down her thoughts, she encouraged Hammond Jr. to do the same, turning him onto poetry, and Anne Sexton in particular. She swooped into his life by chance—bonding initially over a mutual appreciation of Richard Pryor—and two short weeks later she passed away. This record is dedicated to her: Her name is Sara.

                                  “I was already in that spot where I was really soaking things in: you’re sober so that’s what happens; you’re absorbing everything,” he explains. “She started showing me stuff that changed my idea of how to write and how to come up with ideas. I’d have never guessed I’d be talking about her now, but it was so magical that she came into my life for those two weeks.”

                                  “Coming to Getcha” sees her presence expressly addressed—an imagined conversation between them sketched out, fragmented emotions that left an imprint, captured here so they’ll never fade. Momentary Masters is a record that reflects on missed opportunities, choices made, wasted time, and paths not chosen. He calls it “a love letter to my past self.” The music might be largely buoyant—spry, breezy guitar lines locking together and dancing apart—but melancholy frequently seeps into even the sunniest of toplines. It’s a record of acceptance too. Tucked in the song is an exploration of the reconciliation of two halves: the best self that you present to others, and the self that slips through and lies exposed when your guard drops.

                                  “You know how you hang out with someone and there’s things you wouldn’t tell people? You portray that one side which you find to be most attractive, but eventually, if you become close enough, you reveal another side. Most people want to push that away and pretend it doesn’t exist. As good a person as you are, there is also darkness, and if you don’t believe that, you’re just lying to yourself. To be complete, you need to integrate that into your life and accept it as a whole.”

                                  For Hammond Jr. there’s an unwavering thrill in creation and completion, and a hunger too for what’s next: he’s excited to get these songs on the road. Momentary Masters may be concerned with the duality of the human condition, and the recognition that life with all its peaks, plateaus, and lows is a mere blip—“enjoy the weirdness, because it’s all so fleeting”—but ultimately, in these succinct rock songs he’s communicated something that will morph in meaning through time, both to himself and to those who are listening.

                                  Jeff Austin Band

                                  Mandolinist Jeff Austin is unstoppable. He is celebrated for his fleet fingers and penchant for improvisation on stage, but those qualities also speak volumes about how he chooses to live. Austin has cultivated his natural musical abilities and allowed himself to be driven by his boldest instincts. In this way, he has been able to build positive, exciting momentum around his life’s greatest passion.

                                  In 1998, while working at a bar called the Verve in Nederland, Colorado, Austin met Adam Aijala and Ben Kaufmann, with whom he and Dave Johnston would form the Yonder Mountain String Band.

                                  “My time with Yonder has taught me what is possible,” Austin says. “It has shown me that if you work hard at it and you believe in it and there’s a part of you that’s meant to do it, it will happen. It’s clichéd, but it’s true.”

                                  It is with this history at his back that Jeff Austin will step out into the spotlight as a solo act. “My ideal sound is between Phish, My Morning Jacket, and Zac Brown Band.” Austin plans to continue songwriting for his solo project but might be weaving in a bit of mainstream, in the style of his John Scott Sherrill/Shawn Camp co-write “Fiddlin’ Around,” featured on Dierks Bentley’s 2010 bluegrass album Up on the Ridge. “I love writing a three-minute song with a hook that would grab a five-hundred-pound marlin as much as I like writing something that goes, ‘okay, after the bridge, it’s going to open up and just go wide.’”

                                  Indeed, “wide” is what Jeff Austin is all about. He wants new and different, complex and interesting. He wants everything the music world has to offer, and he’s willing to work hard to get it.

                                    The music of The Growlers is unmistakable.
                                    Sure, you can hone in on some influences baked into the work of this California-bred band.
                                    Heck, even they’d cop to a few, like Ricky Nelson and The Clash. But once those same RIYL
                                    tags have been filtered through the minds and hands and voices of this five-piece, there’s simply
                                    nothing else like it.
                                    The Growlers took the phrase “Beach Goth” as an apt descriptor of their music. Sunburned and
                                    salty, that term perfectly describes their distinctive melding of reverb heavy surf guitar and
                                    Bakersfield-style honky tonk with ‘80s post-punk.
                                    This is especially true of Chinese Fountain, The Growlers’ fifth full-length set to be released on
                                    September 23rd via Everloving Records. The 11 songs found on it are some of the strongest that
                                    they’ve committed to tape yet; a byproduct not only of eight years in the trenches together, but
                                    finely honing their gypsy folk dirges and psychedelic sea shanties to fans at close to 150 shows
                                    each year. The connection between vocalist Brooks Nielsen and guitarist Matt Taylor (the
                                    principal songwriters of the group) has only grown deeper.
                                    “The band played better than they’ve ever played,” says Nielsen. “We’ve got the process down
                                    now. There’s less screwing around to get the songs laid out and we weren’t waiting around for
                                    take after take. We knew it and we played without much time to spare.”
                                    That confidence bleeds through every track on Chinese Fountain, with the band assured enough
                                    to layer in shades of many new influences: the loping ska beat of “Dull Boy” and “Going Gets
                                    Tuff,” the playful disco beat behind the title track, or the Teardrop Explodes-like agitation of
                                    “Good Advice.”
                                    Not that the band left themselves much room to second-guess anything. The five spent about
                                    three weeks writing the tracks, and about half that time in the studio recording them. That may
                                    sound rushed, but it’s not as if you can hear any strain on the finished product; Chinese Fountain
                                    is as rock solid and watertight as anything in their still-growing discography.
                                    There’s evolution to be heard in Chinese Fountain as well, courtesy of some of Nielsen’s most
                                    pointed and poignant lyrics to date. He takes our obsession with the online world to task on the
                                    funky title track. When he drops the bomb that obliterates that most famous of Beatles’ claims
                                    with "The internet is bigger than Jesus or John Lennon” he re-contextualizes Marshall
                                    McLuhan's "the medium is the message" in the same breath. He urges positivity no matter the
                                    obstacles (“Going Gets Tuff”). Too, he reveals a tattered heart to the world on tracks like “Rare
                                    Hearts” and “Love Test.”
                                    “This is my chance to let it all out,” Nielsen says of these songs. “I kind of bottle things up and
                                    don’t really get emotional. But I think if I don’t open up, I’d be a really stale person.”

                                    "Formed in late 2009, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. is the off-kilter title under which Detroit-area natives Joshua Epstein and Daniel Zott record, release and perform music.

                                    Initially beginning as an exercise in collaboration undertaken with very little intention of ever being publicly consumed, the band’s trajectory has been as unexpected as it has been unlikely. In just a few short years, fans have seen the project grow from basement recording project--to media curiosity--to an international touring ensemble widely recognized for their joy-fueled live offerings.

                                    While Epstein and Zott have no ties to popular NASCAR circuit driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. nor his late father, the band’s peculiar name was initially suggested to the pair on a lark. The pair assert that the strange moniker has been kept in tact due to the freedom they came to realize such a title gave them to explore whatever musical endeavors they could think up. “The idea being”, Epstein says, “that if one can accept a band being named Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., then you’ve already opened yourself up to listening to anything that band can come up with. You’ve already decided to leave expectations behind”.

                                    From that mantra, the foundation of their partnership was built. Each having spent a good deal of time in various recording and performance environments prior to working with one another, Epstein & Zott set out to explore the many intricacies of cross-genre songwriting and production together with a willingness to borrow as much from the Beach Boys as the Geto Boys if it meant a more dynamic form of pop music. An organic vs. synthesized perspective which by necessity lacked a specified audience or desired outcome, outside of challenging oneself."

                                    Built to Spill

                                    Twenty years on from first signing to Warner Bros. Records, Built To Spill is set to return in 2015 with its eighth studio album, Untethered Moon. That’s now two complete decades that one of America’s leading “indie rock” bands has happily made its home on a major label, and in the process redefined that clumsy descriptor of independence by operating wholly and consistently under its own steam, taking the proper time to craft timeless songs and playing endless, epic shows to a growing grip of fans each year. Under the command of its constant leader, Doug Martsch, as well as a new rhythm section, Built To Spill’s creative process continues to ebb, flow and evolve in its own orbit, reemerging on record for the first time since 2009’s There Is No Enemy with ten new songs that fit at once into the band’s resonant catalog while infusing fresh energy into that signature sound.

                                    In the summer of 2012, Martsch and his longtime bass player Brett Nelson and drummer Scott Plouf recorded an album’s worth of new songs and then went on tour. Martsch was unsatisfied with his performance on the recordings, feeling that he had had too few “eureka moments” in the studio and planned to tweak his parts after tour. Then, citing tour burnout, Nelson and Plouf quit the band, leaving Martsch to scrap the recordings and essentially start over. Adding longtime musical comrades Jason Albertini on bass and Steve Gere on drums, and along with guitarists Jim Roth and Brett Netson, the new Built To Spill emerged a month after reforming to play more shows in 2013 than any other year in the band’s existence. Energized by the new blood as well as marathon rehearsal sessions, Martsch decided to revisit the recording process as a trio, without the other guitar players. “With fewer people it’s easier to focus and communicate during the songwriting process,” says Martsch. “Also we wanted to make the record a little more stripped-down, a little rawer than our last one.”

                                    Over much of the next year, the band would travel to Portland, Oregon, to record with producer Sam Coomes, the Quasi founder whose keyboard playing appears on several earlier Built To Spill albums. “Working with Sam was awesome. He would come to rehearsals and take notes and record us on various little devices. He had ideas for the songs, structural changes, and things like that, but most importantly, he was enthusiastic. We had rehearsed a ton and were maybe losing perspective a little, so to have someone we admire and trust telling us we were on the right path was huge. He also shared our vision of leaving out shit that’s not necessary.”

                                    Acknowledging the intricate, bombastic drumming from Gere and Albertini’s effortless ability to “keep it in the pocket and move the song along,” Martsch found inspiration and confidence. He completed the songwriting with his usual method of piecing together scraps of guitar and instrumental parts from tapes of jams from previous eras of creation, along with the easy cohesion of the trio on new material, which they had practiced and demoed endlessly before setting foot in the studio.

                                    “When we get together and pick up our instruments, I always believe that something magical is going to happen. And it often does, but it’s a magic that maybe only we can feel, in the moment, and doesn’t necessarily translate to tape or to other people. So we keep messing with it until it feels like real music to us. The songs evolve over a long period of time through trial and error. There’s a lot of ideas that don’t go anywhere, and it’s just a matter of leaving them out and including the things that work.” Whether a call by Coomes to abandon a trumpet in favor of a tripped-out guitar, or a killer drum beat evolving from a simple exercise pattern, or even a coincidentally connected artistic inspiration from Alejandro Jodorowsky, the tarot and a photograph of pets, there was no shortage of eureka moments during the making of Untethered Moon.

                                    The album begins with the hard-hitting trio of “All Our Songs,” “Living Zoo,” and “On the Way,” songs that are as complex and compelling as anything on previous Built To Spill outings. Ripping solos, warm tones, vague and familiar Martsch themes of subconscious connection, human commonality and memory, Neil Young influences—it’s all there. “Never Be The Same” is a song from Martsch’s past, redone and encouraged by Coomes, while “C.R.E.B.” is a meditation on the scientific process of forgetting. The album ends with the eight-minute standout “When I’m Blind,” with solos echoing in and out of a drum-tight jam held down to perfection by the new guys. All in all, it’s the unmistakable sound of Built To Spill, but with a new energy that hearkens back to Martsch’s beginnings all those years ago in Twin Falls, Idaho.
                                    Two decades on a major label and even more as a successful musician, the fire and focus haven’t changed for Martsch in the least. “We like making music and that's why we do this. Of course if everyone else hates this record, we’ll be bummed. We are trying to make music that people will enjoy."

                                    Led by Alicia Bognanno, Nashville's indie rock outfit Bully parlayed a 2013 self-titled EP and 2014's "Milkman" single into a deal with Startime International, an imprint of Columbia Records. Bognanno's experience as a sound engineer under Steve Albini at Chicago's Electrical Audio surely influenced the band's classic '90s indie rock sound.

                                                  Blitzen Trapper

                                                  Over the course of 15 years and seven full-length albums, Blitzen Trapper has crafted one of the more compelling and varied catalogs in contemporary rock and roll. Indeed, singer and guitarist Eric Earley, who is also the Portland, Oregon-based band's primary songwriter, is possessed of a musical and lyrical sensibility that is remarkably deep and wide; big ideas and universal emotions are wrung from the seemingly plainspoken details of small-screen and often highly personal stories, and set to music that reaches way, way back to old-timey folk and bluegrass, travels through everything from country, psychedelia and soul to prog, garage and metal, indulges gloriously in the classic rock of the 70s and 80s, and makes occasional side trips into hip-hop, skewed pop and noisey freakouts.
                                                  Even while continuing to explore broad stylistic territory, Blitzen Trapper's eighth studio album, a 10-song collection titled All Across This Land, stands as an exceptionally focused and immediate effort. Though it follows 2013's somewhat experimental VII, a futuristic hip-hop/country-rock hybrid, All Across This Land, in contrast, is a top-down, tightly defined piece of classic rock and roll, full of big riffs, bigger hooks and compelling, instantly relatable lyrics. In sound and scope it recalls two of the band's more beloved albums, 2008's breakthrough fourth effort, Furr, and 2011's landmark American Goldwing. "I think it's a return to the sort of more 'classic' Blitzen Trapper thing, for sure," Earley says.
                                                  It also follows something of a pattern. "It seems to be that every other album goes this way," Earley continues. "After Furr we did [2010's] Destroyer of the Void, where we were exploring all these different things. Then came American Goldwing. After that, VII. Now we're back to that rock thing again."
                                                  Something else All Across This Land shares with Furr and American Goldwing: the fact that these new songs came quick, and in a very concentrated period of time. "Those two albums, I wrote all the songs at once and they all hang together. But the records that came in between, they were written over the course of a year-and-a-half or so," Earley says. For All Across This Land, he continues, "I had all the songs written and demoed in a three or four month span. And I think they work together because everything came in such a short period."
                                                  And yet, for a record characterized by its focus, there is still plenty of musical and lyrical ground covered within its ten songs. Gentle, almost folksy moments–the lilting, pedal steel-inflected "Love Grow Cold"; the fingerpicked closer "Across the River"; the acoustic-guitar-and-harmonica-led "Lonesome Angel"–abound, even if, for the most part, All Across This Land is defined by its more upbeat rock-and-roll numbers. To that end, Earley says it's the record that perhaps best represents what Blitzen Trapper is as a live act. "It's funny, because I think with this band, there's two different ways people see us," he says. "People who just hear the music somewhere, they tend to think of us as this, like, indie-folk act. But people who come to the shows know that we're actually a hard rock band. And who knows? Maybe all that some people really want from us is folk music. But what we like to do is play rock music."
                                                  On All Across This Land, they certainly do. The album kicks off with "All Across This Land," a slice of sun-drenched rock propelled by a stabbing and syncopated guitar riff and full-voiced chords, accented by some euphoric "hoo hoo" backing vocals. When Earley's vocal enters, it's with a greeting of sorts: "Welcome to earth my son you're here just in time / So much to learn so many ways you can shine." The song is, at its core, a celebration of life, in particular of one that is just beginning. "One of the members of our band, Mike [Van Pelt] had just had his second boy, and I was thinking a lot about that," Earley says. From there, he also began to look back on his relationship with his own father, a bluegrass and folk musician. "I was remembering how my father taught me to play music, There's just so much potential in that relationship you have with a new life."
                                                  From here, the record moves into "Rock and Roll Was Made for You," another celebration of sorts, this one for music itself. Over a driving, percussive guitar riff, Earley testifies about its sometimes otherworldly powers: "Rock and roll gonna make you shout / It's for shooting down planes after blacking out."
                                                  Music also serves as the inspiration behind the record's third track, the pulsing and atmospheric "Mystery and Wonder." "In a lot of ways this one is me reminiscing about the songs I've written in the past and my reasons for writing them," Earley says. "And it also looks at how we got into playing music as a band. Because we all came from much smaller places and then we moved to the city, which was Portland. Now, Portland isn't really that big a place, but to us it was. And that's where it all started." Another cut, "Nights Were Made For Love" finds Earley examining his life and band from a more nostalgic perspective. Over a quick-paced but laidback country-rock rhythm, he sings about being "stupid, strange and young at heart / and all we wanted was to rock and roll." "It's looking back at our high school days–going to football games, playing music," he says. "In certain ways, it's sort of the story of the journey of our band."
                                                  Earley's childhood comes into play in a much different way on the dark and driving "Cadillac Road." "That song is about a small mill town in the mountains outside of where we all grew up," the singer explains. "Around '83 or '84, they shut down the mill and everyone was told to pack up and leave. And everyone did–but one guy stayed. People said he lived in the woods, and that if you listened you could hear him at night. It was this odd story that stuck with me, and I felt like I should tell that story." But in telling the tale of one man, Earley manages to touch on much larger themes of loss, regret and perseverance in the face of a shifting American landscape. "Gotta change with the times," he sings at one point, "but I dont have the heart."
                                                  The album ends with another big statement, "Across the River," a rumination on life and death that Earley sees as something of a bookend to opener "All Across This Land." "I feel like they tie in together, because the first song is about new life, and the last one is almost a near-death experience," he says. "I'm crossing a river to another place that's something like the afterlife–it's heaven, but it's not. And then my father shows up and he says, 'You're not supposed to be here yet. You've got more stuff to do.' "
                                                  Earley's father comes up often in the context of his lyrics, which is understandable–the elder Earley has cast a long shadow over his son's musical life. "My dad and my grandfather both played instruments–guitars, banjos...my grandfather was a harmonica virtuoso," Earley says. "So there was a lot of music around me as a child. And it was old-timey stuff. Like mountain music–the kinds of songs where no one knows who wrote them, basically."
                                                  Earley's childhood was so rooted in this music that he didn't get turned on to rock and roll until much later, when he was already in high school. "So to me," he says, "the 80s is kind of my foundation for rock. A lot of my influence is from the Replacements, R.E.M., that kind of stuff. Even Pavement in the early 90s." As a result, on All Across This Land, "when I'm thinking of rock and roll, I'm thinking of Paul Westerberg, to be honest," Earley admits with a laugh. In addition to Westerberg, he also cites Joe Walsh as one of his main rock influences: "He's always been one of my favorite guitar players, and you can hear it on the album. The riffs and chords on 'All Across This Land,' that's straight from Joe Walsh."
                                                  That love of a particular type of rock and roll helped guide Blitzen Trapper's approach on All Across This Land. "We recorded it specifically to be a two guitar, bass, drums and piano record," Earley says. "Every song is a band song, and arranged just how we'd play it onstage. Because at this point, we've made tons of records and we've played tons of shows. And the people who come out to see us, they understand what we're doing and they don't care about genres or anything like that. They're more interested in our actual specific unique personality as a band."
                                                  As for what that specific personality is? "I think there's two kinds of songs I love to write," Earley says. "I love songs that rock hard and that just make you feel good, and then I love songs that are sad and introspective and touch you in a very deep place."
                                                  Which, in essence, is exactly what Blitzen Trapper puts forth on All Across This Land. "I was trying to distill everything down to those two things," Earley explains. And if, in doing so, the band happens to pick up a host of different sounds and styles along the way, so be it. "We're never going to be a band that plays the same song over and over again," he says. "We like to explore. And sometimes that's not so easy for people to deal with. But we're going to just keep on doing what we do."

                                                  Jon McLaughlin

                                                  Jon McLaughlin has been playing piano and making music since childhood. He was born and raised in Indiana, and eventually ended up at Anderson University, also in Indiana. With the support of the university’s record label, Oranghaus, a few friends and an old Chevy van, McLaughlin wrote and recorded music, and toured extensively throughout his college years
                                                  before he was signed to Island Records in 2006.

                                                  The following eight years had one common denominator for Jon McLaughlin: writing and producing songs, releasing albums, driving around the country playing music with his band and collaborating with fellow artists like Sara Bareilles, Demi Lovato, Xenia and Need to Breathe, among others. He has shared the stage with artists such as Kelly Clarkson, Adele, One Republic,
                                                  Bon Jovi, Colbie Caillat, Parachute, and Duffy. And, in 2014, a dream came true when Jon
                                                  supported the legendary piano man himself, Billy Joel, in selected dates across the country.

                                                  This coming fall, Jon will be touring with fellow Nashville singer songwriter, Ben Rector. Jon has also made his mark in music for film and television. In 2008, McLaughlin had a cameo appearance in the Disney movie, Enchanted, and performed the Oscar nominated song “So Close,” both on the film’s soundtrack and at the 80th Academy Awards. Jon’s songs have been
                                                  featured in major films such as Georgia Rule and Bridge to Terabithia. Jon’s music has been
                                                  featured on TV shows such as Scrubs, So You think You Can Dance, Ghost Whisperer, The Event as well as major network promotions. Jon has appeared on talk shows such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, CBS Saturday Morning, The Today Show, and The Bonnie Hunt Show, among others.

                                                      That 1 Guy

                                                      With an extensive and amazing track record of unique and imaginative performances featuringhis curious instrument and copious amounts of originality, Mike Silverman aka That1Guy has set himself apart as a true one-of-a-kind talent that rivals any other artist currently in the entertainment industry. Averaging 150-200 shows a year all over North America and Canada, he has been a consistent favorite at such festivals as: Wakarusa, Electric Forest, Big Day out, All Good, Bella, High Sierra, Summer Meltdown, Montreal Jazz Festival, and many more. He was also the ʻTap Water Awardʼ winner at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for best musical act. His legendary collaboration and multiple tours with Buckethead as The Frankenstein Brothers has further cemented his virtuoso story as a creative visionary as well.

                                                      His innovation continues to soar with the announcement of another tour kicking off in January 2014, which will feature live video projections on a completely unique rig invented, created and operated by the guy himself. Along with his pioneering main instrument, The Magic Pipe, a monstrosity of metal, strings, and electronics, facilitates the dynamic live creation of music and magic in ways only That1Guy can conjure, expect to see magic as well now integrated into the already clever performance. With this addition of incorporating magic seamlessly into his live shows, he has legitimately achieved an all inclusive audio/visual performance unlike anything experienced before. “So much of my music has miraculous qualities to it because itʼs hard to tell whatʼs going on. There are lots of slights of hand and sonic misdirection. It feels like I was meant to do magic”.

                                                      Silvermanʼs backstory is very similar to many musicians that have come before him. He grew up a self proclaimed music geek, soaked in the influence of his jazz musician father, and enrolled in San Francisco Conservatory of Music before joining the local jazz scene himself as a sought-after percussive bassist. This is where the similarities end, though, and where That1Guy truly began. “In my case, being a bass player, I just felt very restricted by the instrument itself,” he says. “Iʼve always wanted to sound different and have my own sound. I was headed that way on the bass, but for me to fully realize what I was hearing in my head sonically I was going to have to do it my way”. His influential and innovative double bass style eventually evolved into what we see today as That1Guy and ʻThe Magic Pipeʼ.

                                                      As his story continues to develop, Billboard has famously noted, “In the case of Mike Silvermanʼs slamming, futuristic funk act… the normal rules of biology just donʼt apply.”
