THE SHONDES (rhymes with “Hondas” and Yiddish for “shames” or “disgraces”) are a rock band from Brooklyn, NY, who play Bikini Kill-meets-Bruce Springsteen-style sing-along anthems for you. Formed by best friends Louisa Rachel Solomon and Elijah Oberman back in 2006, the band has released four albums, including 2013′s critically-acclaimed The Garden (praised by Rolling Stone, Billboard, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, etc.). The band has toured the U.S. with Against Me! and headlined U.S. and European tours, including shows with Uh Huh Her, Electrelane, Rasputina, MEN, Caithlin De Marrais (Rainer Maria), Franz Nicolay (The Hold Steady), Mary Timony (Helium, Wild Flag), Erase Errata, Amy Ray (The Indigo Girls), Joe Lally (Fugazi), Mecca Normal, Bonfire Madigan, Party Line (Bratmobile), Lesbians on Ecstasy, Kaia Wilson (Team Dresch) and many more; and performed at festivals including CMJ Music Festival in New York, South By Southwest in Austin, and North By Northeast in Toronto.

JULIE OF THE WOLVES is comprised of vocalist/guitarist Carrie Neumayer (Second Story ManEarly Age), Stephanie Gary (Venus Trap, The Frequent Sea), Salena Filichia (Madame Machine, Venus Trap) and Becca Lindsay (The Red Nails, Minnow). Those are only a partial listing of the bands these people have been in. This lineup has a lot of Louisville musical history running through it. The name of the band comes from the 1972 book by Jean Craighead George, in which the title character must face changes and dangerous challenges forced upon her from culture, the elements and humankind. “These are challenging tunes that do not shy from pushing and pulling simultaneously, a teaming between catchy melodies and a pounding aggression.” — American Gloam.

HAILEY WOJCIK’s darkly witty lyrics and fierce aesthetic have earned her the title of “the Wednesday Addams of her genre” (The Deli Magazine), and My Old Kentucky Blog notes that she “sounds mighty fine at volumes that may disturb others who may be in the room with you.” Her music and videos have caught the attention of Magnet, After Ellen, MTV, Logo, and Girls Get Busy Zine. She has co-directed several music videos, many of which included her own stop-motion animation. Her debut album, Diorama, was produced by Dan Romer in 2010 (Beasts of the Southern Wild, Jenny Owen Youngs, Jukebox the Ghost). In the intervening years since releasing Diorama, Hailey pursued a side project, the garage rock two-piece, WOJCIK, which released an eponymous EP and an LP entitled Wise Blood, in 2012 and 2013, respectively. The Book of Beasts EP comes out on March 3rd, 2015 on cassette with Wiener Records.

oren_blue_hires

OREN AMBARCHI‘s works are hesitant and tense extended songforms located in the cracks between several schools: modern electronics and processing; laminal improvisation and minimalism; hushed, pensive songwriting; the deceptive simplicity and temporal suspensions of composers such as Morton Feldman and Alvin Lucier; and the physicality of rock music, slowed down and stripped back to its bare bones, abstracted and replaced with pure signal.

From the late 90’s his experiments in guitar abstraction and extended technique have led to a more personal and unique sound-world incorporating a broader palette of instruments and sensibilities. On releases such as Grapes From The Estate and In The Pendulum’s Embrace AMBARCHI employed glass harmonica, strings, bells, piano, drums and percussion, creating fragile textures as light as air which tenuously coexist with the deep, wall-shaking bass tones derived from his guitar.

AMBARCHI has performed and recorded with a diverse array of artists such as Fennesz, Charlemagne Palestine, Sunn 0)), Thomas Brinkmann, Keiji Haino, Alvin Lucier, John Zorn, Merzbow, Jim O’Rourke, Keith Rowe, Akio Suzuki, Phill Niblock, John Tilbury, Richard Pinhas, Evan Parker, crys cole, Fire! and many more.

Since 2001 AMBARCHI has toured Europe, North America and Japan regularly and has performed at major festivals such as ATP (UK), Sonar (Spain), Mutek (Canada), CTM (Germany), INA GRM (France), Roskilde (Denmark), Etna Fest (Italy), Festival De Mexico (Mexico) and many more including a recent live collaboration with the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra at the Tectonics festival in Reykjavik. His acclaimed trio with Keiji Haino and Jim O’Rourke performs in Tokyo annually with many of their concerts documented on AMBARCHI‘s Black Truffle label.

AMBARCHI has released numerous recordings for labels such as Touch, Southern Lord, Editions Mego, Drag City, Kranky and Tzadik. His solo release Sagittarian Domain was voted #1 in Spin magazine’s Best Avant albums of 2012.

His latest release is Quixotism which was listed in The Wire magazine’s top 50 releases of 2014. He was also named one of Pitchfork’s Experimental Artists of the Year for 2014, along with Matthew Shipp.

Visiting Nurse Live

Comprised of electronic drums, keyboards, bass, and effected guitar, VISITING NURSE features long time collaborators Jon Hill, Mike Seymour, and Syd Bishop creating music that seems to somehow straddle the gap between the organic and inorganic, a cyborg pastiche of jazz influenced composition, and rigid structures. For fans of Boards of Canada, Clams Casino, and Biosphere.

“Mystical country, like an eerie yellowing photograph” – David Bowie

“A small but grand statement, recorded in a week, but achieving country-soul greatness”
– UNCUT * * * * stars

“MC Taylor writes folk music that is at once firmly steeped in tradition and immediately accessible.” – NPR Music

“Fans of Will Oldham and Bill Callahan will find much to admire in the work of MC Taylor, a revivalist who also lectures in folklore.” – Guardian UK

HISS GOLDEN MESSENGER is Durham, North Carolina-based songwriter M.C. Taylor, in partnership with multi-instrumentalist and recordist Scott Hirsch, who lives in Brooklyn, New York. The pair have been playing music together for nearly two decades. Taylor and Hirsch are clear that they draw inspiration from a variety of sources, including the blue-collar mysticism of Ronnie Lane and Richard & Linda Thompson; the high haunted atmospheres of John Martyn and Talk Talk; and American vernacular music writ large (from Archie Brownlee to the Staple Singers; Charlie Poole to Merle Haggard).

William Tyler is a Nashville guitarist and composer. He spent years woodshedding and touring with Nashville groups like Lambchop and Silver Jews before breaking away to focus on his own version of instrumental guitar music. 2010’s Behold the Spirit, William Tyler’s first album under his own name, was celebrated by Pitchfork as “the most vital, energized album by an American solo guitarist in a decade or more” and established him as a critical favorite, the picker who, according to his friend and tour mate M.C. Taylor from Hiss Golden Messenger, “connects the dots between Sandy Bull, Richard Thompson, Bruce Langhorne, and Reggie Young.”

Recommended If You Like: U.S. Christmas, Meredith Monk, Aphex Twin

CHER VON, aka Chervon Koeune, is an experimental vocalist, performer, and composer residing in Louisville, Kentucky. CHER VON is known for her unique vocal style, which blends a playful use of wordless vocalizing with a sometimes-throaty, sometimes-graceful delivery of ethereal melodies. Working primarily with a vocal processor, a large bass drum, and miscellaneous found-sound objects, her exploration has shifted to minimalist music concepts.

Dash Lewis uses a modular synthesizer, effects pedals, and his own voice to create intricately layered, rhythmically complex slabs of trance-inducing psychedelia deeply influenced by Harmonia, Lichens, and Ariel Kalma. A GARDENER set ranges from 25-30 minutes and consists of a single composition encouraging deep listening.

DIVINE CIRCLES is the solo venture of violinist and composer Meg Mulhearn, also a member of the groups U.S. Christmas, Judas Horse and Lunar Creature.

SHUTARO NOGUCHI is from Japan and in 2010 he moved to Louisville, Kentucky after finishing his college degree and internship at FAME studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. He quickly found musical outlets as a collaborator with K Tranza and Another 7 Astronauts. From 2013 he started recording his own songs, and has released several recordings. His style of music varies but generally is melody-oriented, minimal acoustic guitar singer-songwriting sung in Japanese with a flavor of traditional-folk, backed by ensembles of synth and electric guitar. He is influenced by music from America and around the world, and Pajo.

PILE. The indisputable heroes of Boston’s burgeoning indie rock scene hardly need an introduction. The band’s name speaks volumes to most, and to the rest… it soon will. Earning the reputation of “your favorite band’s favorite band,” the quartet (Rick Maguire, Kris Kuss, Matt Connery, and Matt Becker) have been setting the DIY indie punk scene ablaze since 2009, developing a unanimously praised back catalog in the process and a legion of diehard fans throughout the entire country and abroad. The band have toured heavily over the years, playing all ages venues and basements in the spirit of DIY culture with peers Speedy Ortiz, Big Ups, LVL UP, Two Inch Astronaut, Krill, etc. as well as support shows with bands like Obits, Ex Hex, and Metz. Their new album, You’re Better Than This, comes out March 3 on Exploding in Sound.

The Wrists are a band from Louisville, which exploded on the scene with their first release, a cassette on AuralgamiSOUNDS in January. Consisting of Colin Kellogg, Jason Sparks, McKinley Moore, and Matt Filip, The Wrists are the most exciting new band around!

WAXEATER are “diggin’ through the ditches, burning through the witches, eatin’ pizza, taco-ing our riffs, having one dude named rob, riding in vanne frank, drinknig bourbon, gettin’ electrocuted, lovin’ america, havin’ a baby, poking smot, and slamming in the back of our dragula.”

Somewhere between punk and blues – a porch and an alley – lies Radiator King, the performing/recording name of Boston native and Brooklyn-based Adam Silvestri. Established in 2011, Radiator King’s music shows influences from both Dylan and Strummer with a sound described by Boston blog Allston Pudding as something akin to what “Tom Waits locked in a room for a month with nothing but a copy of Springsteen’s Nebraska” might produce. Whether alone with a guitar or backed by a band, Radiator King embodies the raw energy of punk, the grit and intricacy of Delta Blues, and the lyrical potency of folk in “songs that are the sonic equivalent to an old whiskey bar at the end of a dirt road.”

Recommended If You Like: Tim Krekel, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Thin Lizzy, Leon Russell

WILL OWEN GAGE performs groovy, rootsy, blues rock, funk, soul, R&B, bluegrass country music! He has performed all over the country and has opened for such greats as Stephen Stills, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Leon Russell, Peter Frampton, Dick Dale, Kenny Wayne Sheppard, Three Dog Night, Pinetop Perkins, Delbert McClinton, and many more! Members of Tim Krekel’s band will be joining him for this very special homecoming!

The members of GOODBYE JUNE have spent much of the past decade honing their skill as songwriters along with their proficiency as vocalists and musicians. The sum of their collective efforts makes for a greater musical experience. They typically write together and draw off of each other’s ideas. Being strong songwriters individually, and even stronger as a unit, there is never any shortage of material to build songs around. They have no set method to the songwriting process; the only constant is that everyone gets involved at some point. The fact is, the cousins of GOODBYE JUNE are constantly working on their music and perfecting their artistry, because they know that’s what it takes to make music that matters. Their debut album Nor The Wild Music Flow was released in 2013 on Cotton Valley Records.

THE SAL SHOW is a musical extravaganza consisting of several versions of thee one and only, Sal Cassato, by use of his two favorite performance mediums; visual projection interaction and rock ‘n roll [technically that’s three, Sal! -ed.]. You may know this inspiring man from performances with his other rock outfits, State Champion and Animal City. He’s playing with himself, but thinking of us.
