SIX BELLS is a Louisville, Kentucky-based band consisting of longtime scene veterans Brandon Butler (formerly of Canyon and Boys Life), Ryan Patterson (Coliseum, Whips/Chains), Keith Bryant (formerly of Coliseum), and Forrest Kuhn (killii killii, formerly of Ennui). They combine the lyricism of Butler’s solo songwriter work with the taut, “Louisville-style” rhythm section of Bryant and Kuhn, plus Ryan Patterson’s tasteful, melodic guitar.
“WILDHONEY are a pop band through and through. While some have thrown around words like “dreamy” and “hazy” to describe their brand of guitar pop, there’s something deeper going on that can’t be summed up in an easy blog tag. Songs such as “Soft Bats” and “Like Me” aren’t just catchy songs, they’re songs that stick with you long after they end. This is due to the simple, yet great interplay between vocals and guitars that weave throughout almost effortlessly. “Get Out Of My Dreams” from their upcoming single finds WILDHONEY digging a bit deeper and crafting an almost droney pop song that not only is catchy but pulses with life.”
If you’re a fan of the 1980s UK indiepop movement known alternately as C86, twee, or anorak pop, it’s safe to say you need Baltimore’s EXPERT ALTERATIONS in your life. The trio’s debut, self-titled cassette is available for download at their bandcamp site, and it’s safe to say that if you’re a fan of Jesus and Mary Chain, Close Lobsters, or even contemporary Elephant 6-related bands, you’ll love their sound!
