Cosmic Americana rockers COYOTES make their triumphant return to the local music scene after a summer long hiatus which involved writing and recording new material and a few lineup changes. Joining the group will be Chris Littlejohn (Gold and the Rush) on percussion and Derek Duplessie (The Kid Carsons) on pedal steel. The band already has some solid support dates on the books for the Fall and look to add a few more. Keep an eye out for these guys and look for a new EP toward the end of the year. Check a few of the dates below.
Sept 5 – Publiq House*
Sept 30 – Gasa Gasa^
* – with Royal Teeth
^ – with The Apache Relay
Very excited to announce a new show today – SONS OF BILL make their Gasa Gasa debut on November 4th.
Sons of Bill became more than Charlottesville’s best kept secret with the release of the Sirens LP, a brash rock and roll record, which debuted on the Billboard top 200 and #12 on the Heatseekers chart in 2012. The band toured extensively on both sides of the Atlantic for a year and a half and gained some notoriety for their fiery live performances and road dog work ethic. But Love and Logic certainly marks a turning point for the band– a more sober, reflective, version of themselves– the sound of a band coming into its own.
Tickets are $8 in advance & $10 at the door. The Kid Carsons open.
Tickets go ON-SALE August 22 at 10am.
Fresh off of their recent East Coast tour Cardinal Sons have released a video of a fan favorite track ‘Drummer’. The video was shot while recording their latest endeavor ‘Echo Choir EP’ in Asheville, NC at Charlie Sexton’s Echo Studios. The song is about the Dave; the youngest Shirley sibling and his penchant for “not shutting the fuck up” while on tour last Fall (according to John). Click the image to listen to the song. Enjoy.
“Today we’re very thrilled to announce we have signed with Crossover Touring Agency, joining their talented roster alongside the likes of Kung Fu, Victor Wooten, Rebirth Brass Band, and many more amazing artists and musicians.
We’d like to publicly give thanks to our management team of Max Bonanno, Stu Schayot, and SimplePlay Presents for helping make this happen and we look forward to continue working with them as we progress as a band. Also a special thanks to Mark Brut and Rocky Mountain Artists who have been instrumental in exposing us to new markets, fans, and parts of the country which we hope to be seeing much more frequently in coming years.
To everyone who has listened to our music, come to a show, or simply encouraged us in some way…we love what we do and can’t thank you enough for supporting us. You inspire us everyday to keep doing our thing and we love you all madly. Many thanks and see you soon.
Cardinal Sons are headed back to the Big Apple for 2 performances (Lincoln Center & Rockwood Music Hall) and will be making a stop at NPR’s Mountain Stage along the way along with a few other stops in between. You can check out all of the dates below.
The band also released a music video for their first single ‘Day of Summer’ off of their highly anticipated follow up EP titled ‘The Echo Choir EP’ produced by Charlie Sexton. To watch/listen just click the pic below.
Probably the one show of our Fall calendar that we just couldn’t wait to tell you about but were forced too by the powers that be! Alas, finally it is here! ODESZA will grace the stage at One Eyed Jacks on Saturday September 27th!! Tickets go ON-SALE on Friday June 20 at 10AM CT.
In 2012, Seattle production duo ODESZA began as a recording project between Harrison Mills (aka Catacombkid) and Clayton Knight (BeachesBeaches) after graduating from Western Washington University. Their first release, Summer’s Gone, was a mixture of dreamy, sun trickled melodies, glitched out vocals, crunchy drums and large sweeping bass lines. Two tracks from Summer’s Gone, “How Did I Get Here” and “iPlayYouListen,” reached #1 on the Hype Machine Popular chart, cementing the duo as a force in the underground electronic community.
2013 saw the release of the My Friends Never Die EP with three of the five tracks hitting #1 on Hype Machine. Relentless touring followed, including dates with Pretty Lights, Emancipator, Michal Menert, and performances at Sasquatch Music Festival, Lightning In A Bottle, What The Festival, Summer Meltdown, Capitol Hill Block Party, MusicfestNW, Decibel Festival and Symbiosis Gathering. The duo was playing to larger and larger crowds when Pretty Lights tapped ODESZA to be the support act on the fall Pretty Lights tour and to remix “One Day They’ll Know,” which also hit #1 on Hype Machine and #8 on the iTunes Electronic Chart. Also in 2013, ODESZA selected their favorite producers for a follow up remix EP, My Friends Never Die Remixes, and launched the ambitious, ongoing mixtape series NO.SLEEP.
February 2014 brought the release of the ODESZA single “Sun Models (feat. Madelyn Grant)” off the forthcoming new album which also hit #1 on Hype Machine. In March 2014 ODESZA’s remix of Pretty Lights’ “Lost And Found” was released on the DIVERGENT movie soundtrack and hit #1 on Hype Machine, the duo’s eighth #1 on Hype Machine.
ODESZA’s first headlining tour this spring has numerous sold out shows across the country.
What Made Milwaukee Famous has been a stalwart of the Austin music scene since their inception in 2003. Singer/Songwriter Michael Kingcaid has employed a diverse range of musicians in the past decade, priding the band on not being backed into any corners, stylistically. With the release of their first two records, Trying to Never Catch Up and What Doesn’t Kill Us on Seattle’s Barsuk imprint, the band was touted for their abilities to channel strong musicianship and diverse songwriting into instantly, addictive hooks. Their “elegant pop” (Billboard) has landed them on the bill at a number of the mammoth festivals including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Sasquatch, SXSW and Lollapalooza, highlighted by a taping on PBS’s prestigious Austin City Limits with Franz Ferdinand.
They have also shared the stage with the likes of Arcade Fire, The Black Keys, The National, Snow Patrol, The Walkmen, TV on the Radio, and the Pretenders to name a few; a testament to the band’s musical diversity and mutual respect with other artists in the industry.
Tickets are ON-SALE now HERE.

Melodically beat-driven and meditatively lyrical, Sinkane’s Mean Love rolls like an emotional, existential history of the artist. Ahmed Gallab has created an altogether unique compound of sound, stylistically nostalgic and ultramodern at the same time. From Gallab’s childhood in Sudan there is a Pan-African influence of popular Sudanese music and haqibah, as well as distinct horn and synth arrangements more common to East Africa. After fleeing Sudan when his father– a journalist and politician – was exiled following a military coup in 1989, Ahmed was faced with a stark contrast when he moved to the predominantly white, Mormon center of Provo, Utah. While this and a subsequent move to Ohio caused a further sense of alienation in a young Gallab, it was also part of the inspiration for the path he walks as an artist. This background merges with the lessons learned from Ahmed‘s stints with obsessive craftsmen such as Caribou, Yeasayer and Of Montreal, and especially the monumental task he underwent as musical director of ‘ATOMICBOMB! The Music of William Onyeabor.’ Gallab excavated and arranged a treasure trove of lost classics from the West African synth-pioneer to put together a now legendary series of performances. Alongside his band-mates in Sinkane (jaytram on drums, Ish Montgomery on bass, Jonny Lam on guitar), he also brought on guests Damon Albarn, David Byrne, The Lijadu Sisters, Money Mark and members of Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem, The Rapture, and Blood Orange.
The son of Ecuadorean immigrants, Helado Negro was born in South Florida in 1980. His childhood was suffused with tropical heat, humidity, hurricanes, all refracted with the rich sounds and colors of the various Latin American cultures of southern Florida. Pounding bass beats from passing cars, boom boxes bouncing down the block, and late-night parties called “peñas” provided a foundation for Helado Negro’s interest in sound and lifelong quest to discover the unlimited variety of objects used to produce music. Most recently he created a new collaborative group with Julianna Barwick called OMBRE releasing their debut album in 2012 called Believe You Me. Helado Negro has worked with Bear in Heaven mixing their Pitchfork’s Best New Music album Beast Rest Forth Mouth. He also produced Prefuse 73‘s 2010 album Everything She Touched Turned Ampexian.
