NEW MOTHER NATURE is a relatively new band on the Louisville scene, but filled with familiar faces. Members of NEW MOTHER NATURE are current or former members of Old Baby, The Phantom Family Halo, Natural Geographic, and many more. They quickly became one of our favorite Louisville bands, and we think you’ll like ‘em as well. Their sound “is rich with straight-forward melodies… all while maintaining a sense of playful, if cautious experimentation.” — Syd Bishop, LEO Weekly.

Although best known for his work with iconoclasts Charalambides, which he co-founded with Christina Carter in 1991, TOM CARTER has recently focused on his solo performances and recordings, which have increasingly featured visual components – including collaborations with filmmakers Martha Colburn and Margarida Garcia. Currently, Carter is on a solo US tour with New Zealand’s Gate, and working on two solo LPs for release in 2014. TOM CARTER is also well-known for collaborations with other musicians. Fellow travelers have included Marc Orleans (Sunburned Hand of the Man), Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance), Tom Surgal, Marcia Bassett, Paul Flaherty, Thurston Moore (Chelsea Light Moving), Dredd Foole, Loren Connors, Pip Proud, Jandek, Bardo Pond, Steve Gunn, and Matt Valentine, among many others. Over the past decades, he refined his evolving ideas of tonal immersion (and the quest for the perfect fuzz tone) into a layered sonic toolkit of rough beauty. He now lives in New York City.
JONATHAN WOOD & LOWE SUTHERLAND are known to connoisseurs of Louisville music, primarily for their main musical vehicles Old Baby and Sapat, respectively. They’re taking a dynamic duo detour down a ramshackle dirt road, riding a pink Cadillac into the sunset of a February night. Will they fly off the handle, riding high like
Thelma & Louise James Taylor and Dennis Wilson into an expansive western sky? Or will they keep it down-to-earth, dusting up your jacket and filling your lungs with exhaust while they peel out, squealing their tires? There’s only one way to find out, dear listener…
CIAN NUGENT is a guitar player and composer from Dublin, Ireland who combines personal passions, such as suburban/coastal blues, traditional musics, late 1960s & ’70s singer-songwriters, jazz ambitions, 20th century composition and the Takoma school into a deeply personal style. His music boasts an orchestrated and fully instrumented sound that is playful and eerie at the same time. In the past he has toured with people such as Jack Rose, Glenn Jones, Micah Blue Smaldone, Ben Reynolds, Nalle, The Family Elan, George Stavis, Jozef van Wissem, C Joynes, Peter Delaney, Thinguma*jigSaw and James Blackshaw throughout Europe and the United States.
