R. RING is Kelley Deal & Mike Montgomery. It is voices, guitars and keys. It is sparse, chaotic, abrasive and lulling, often within the same song.

THE FERVOR offers a rare example of truth in advertising. With intensity and passion, THE FERVOR adopt the best of rock and roll troubadour tropes and synthesize them into a pastiche that feels unique and familiar, all while seamlessly fitting into the narrative of their native Louisville’s rich musical culture. With husky vocals delivered in a distinct and seductive tone, THE FERVOR‘s Natalie Felker paints mystical, dreamlike imagery. No Depression called her “the Karen Carpenter of indie rock.” Alongside Natalie’s radiant vocals and shimmering keys, the band cultivates hypnotic atmospheres that stomp and crash toward listener-rewarding apexes.

SHIVERING TIMBERS have been honing their considerable craft on relentless tour stops with Shovels & Rope, Jessica Lea Mayfield, The Chapin Sisters, and so many more, resulting in a live presence that combines rock energy, blues/punk passion, and country/gospel reflection.

quailbones

QUAILBONES is a five-piece garage rock band from the disoriented streets of the friendliest small-town in America: Murray, Kentucky. Their debut album will be released this summer on Karmic Swamp.

Recommended If You Like: Fuck, Beat Happening, Old Baby, Jaye Jayle, Louisville!

SAD HORSE is the Portland, Oregon-based duo of Elizabeth Venable (a Louisville native!) and Geoff Soule (formerly of Fuck). Their debut album, Purple on Purple Makes Purple, was released on Water Wing Records, and you can listen to it here: http://sadhorse.bandcamp.com/.

THE FUNS provide an exceptional challenge to the music writer. First and foremost, since the band rose through the ranks of Chicago’s illegal and underground venues, the simple fact is that experiencing the band’s recordings separates the listener from the band’s ‘natural’ environment. Secondly, like most independent, outsider pop bands in recent years, THE FUNS’ music is really without genre. You could call them a punk band, but that’s not quite right – their songs are often chugging, slow, and tempo-shifting. Yet, the band isn’t really noisy or crazy, either — they don’t mash effects pedals, they don’t play with signal noise, they don’t manipulate tape, etc. And, as muddy the band might sound, this certainly isn’t what you’d recognize as grunge. So you see, we have a full gamut of ill-fitting categories for THE FUNS.” -Nicholas Zettel, Decoder Magazine: http://www.secretdecoder.net/reviews/2013/06/04/the-funs-the-funs/

EVAN PATTERSON, ACOUSTIC GUITAR will be just like it sounds: the debut of a surprise, completely solo set by Evan Patterson, guitarist/vocalist for Young Widows, Old Baby, and Jaye Jayle. So gather ’round the imaginary campfire, and get ready for some songs, Louisville!

Recommended If You Like: Windhand, Black Sabbath, Earth, Sunn0)), Townes Van Zandt

Apart from fans of Windhand, the Virginia-based doom-metal band she anchors as singer and lyricist, DORTHIA COTTRELL is an unknown pleasure. Criminally so, but her new debut solo album will change that. It is a work of savage beauty, a collection of folk-blues songs as lustrous as they are foreboding. Shadows lurk in COTTRELL’s voice, a smoky, sage alto that most certainly belongs to a woman who has “whiskey in my water,” as she sings on “Oak Grove.” In that song, she confesses — or maybe it’s a boast — “I’m the kind of girl who needs a devil in a man / To satisfy me.” With little more than acoustic guitar and multi-tracked harmonies, and pedal steel conjuring some haze, the album has the unhurried intimacy of old Folkways recordings, or even Cat Power’s The Covers Record. She strips her cover of Townes Van Zandt’s “Rake” down to a skeletal dirge, giving a similar treatment to her forlorn version of Gram Parsons’s “A Song for You.” An artist of COTTRELL’s caliber was bound to step into the light, even as darkness surrounds her. (James Reed, Boston Globe)

THE MIGHTY AUROCH sound like trying to fit a truck in your ear. Formed sometime in 2007 (we think, we drink a lot of beer) THE MIGHTY AUROCH has been blowing minds and eardrums since. With their own brand of stoner rock and doom metal, many of the bars in Louisville, Kentucky have had to increase their building’s structural insurance. THE MIGHTY AUROCH named themselves after a now extinct species of buffalo indigenous to Europe. Slow, lumbering, mighty, don’t mess with ’em.

NATE HALL is best known for his space-rock/doom outfit, U.S. Christmas (Neurot Recordings). His first solo album on Neurot, A Great River, explores more textural, slow roots reminiscent of Townes Van Zandt. Nate’s second album, Electric Vacuum Roar was released last year with additional guitars by Brett Netson (Caustic Resin, Earth, Built To Spill), and goes in a completely different direction, with just two long tracks of drone/amplifier worship in the vein of Earth or Sunn0)).

Brutal Benevolence (Philanthropy At Full Volume)
Founded on June 11th, 2012 by Patrick Flanary, Amanda Flanary, Kim Bailey, and Julie Lunn in honor of Patrick’s daughter, Fiana. We’re raising the awareness of Williams Syndrome and fundraising to support children with Williams Syndrome through the power of music.

Brutal Benevolence, Inc. is a group of musicians and artists coming together to support music therapy as an integral part of the development of children with disabilities. Our intent is to enrich the lives of high needs children in the greater Louisville area by sponsoring group music therapy programs.

Williams Syndrome is a genetic condition that is present at birth and can affect anyone. It is characterized by multiple medical problems, including cardiovascular disease, developmental delays, and learning disabilities. These occur side by side with striking verbal abilities, highly social personalities and an affinity for music. WS affects 1 in 10,000 people worldwide – an estimated 20,000 to 30,000 people in the United States. It is known to occur equally in both males and females and in every culture.
