Hurts To Laugh
Bang OK Bang
Fancytramp was birthed somewhere between a record store and a salon chair in 2012ish by songwriter Olivia Scibelli (guitar, vocals), Betty Banyay (bass), and Matt Manning (drums, vocals). Keeping with the DIY/punk ethos, Fancytramp is entirely self-sustaining. Relying on and believing in the local scene in each city, Fancytramp has been consistently touring the states. Their live show is a radical experience, and at times it's easy to forget the band is only a three piece. Many people have compared Fancytramp to bands like Black Sabbath, X and Sleater-Kinney- drawing from the heavy-pop like sound and energetic punkiness. Describing music, however, is entirely subjective and one thing about Fancytramp that is absolute is that it's unique and not to be missed.
Fancytramp released their first EP entitled "Singing Tower At Sunset" in July of 2012. Their first self-released 7" containing Sweetlow w/Bee Charmer was released on Record Store Day 2013.
Deep Machine is breaking musical ground with their blend of rock and electronic fusion. Their combination of melodic guitar riffs and driving synth countermelodies infused with groovy alien time signatures has been pushing new boundaries since late 2010. In that short amount of time, Deep Machine has become tight and well greased, while honing their live show into an incredible experience that is sure to stay with you. Deep Machine is a four-piece, experimental rock outfit instilled with electronic undertones. Formed during college at MTSU in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, the band began getting attention within just a few short months after their conception. The group has already shared the stage with plenty of up-and-coming regional bands such as EOTO, Zoogma, Cherub, Noise Organization, EP3, and Arpetrio and has been booked at such much festivals as Dexfest, Red Gorilla, Muddy River and Boombutywah. With their first full-length release currently in the works and a full summer tour schedule, Deep Machine is developing quickly on their way up. Boasting their captivating live show that has already left audiences around the country stunned, Deep Machine will be coming to your town soon.
The Lonely H
We're a five-piece rock outfit out of Nashville, TN. We're originally from the small town of Port Angeles, Washington (with the exception of a Miami native). With three albums and a couple years of grassroots touring under our belts, we moved down to Nashville in the fall of 2010 to see what musical fate awaited us there.
After a year's work in the studio starting last year, our fourth full-length record is finally finished. It was a long and often arduous journey that took longer than we ever imagined it would. But the result is far worth the wait. With sharper songs and vocals, stonesy guitar interplay, and a well-oiled rhythm section topped off with the masterful production of Dexter Green, this collection of tunes sounds worlds above our previous work. With guest spots by the Rolling Stones' saxophonist Bobby Keys, background vocals by the talented Caitlin Rose, Melissa Mathes, Margo Price, and Alex Caress, horns by John Painter, and some expert key work by Jefferson Crow, this is the record where it all comes together. Drawing from the inspirations of Tom Petty, Jackson Browne and the late Gerry Rafferty to name a few, we've created something completely fresh but with a welcome hint of familiarity. In other words, it's our best work yet.
Keep your eyes and ears peeled 'cause LP number four is coming your way early next year.
