  • Oakland post-punks The Soft Moon hit the road in support of their sophomore album Zeros, being released on Captured Tracks this Fall. With the new songs being written and recorded between days on the road, The Soft Moon sound had expanded into a full-band attack accompanied by immersive video visuals.

    Accompanying them will be LA band Cold Showers, who fuse the brash power of the shoegazers with the smoky compulsions of the no-wavers.

  • The Lonely Hearts are a rock and roll jukebox.

    A high energy quartet, the Lonely Hearts have been playing together for nearly a decade; from intimate parties to maximum capacity crowds, they have kept audiences dancing from start to finish. They contain the energy and soul of a vintage rock and roll band but with an incredibly vast repertoire that ranges from early rock and roll, Motown, early punk, new wave and modern pop. Their musicianship goes far beyond their years. They pride themselves on the ability to read a crowd and use their repertoire to tailor their set in order to keep the party at a high pace.

    A unique contrast exists within The Lonely Hearts; they give you the best of then with the youthful energy of now. They understand the importance of your event and will do everything they can to make your event as memorable and enjoyable as possible.

  • Philadelphia electronic pop duo Marian Hill return with a pair of new tracks - "Got It" and "Lips" - that demonstrate two very different sides of their ever-maturing craft.

    Comprised of Jeremy Lloyd (production/songwriting) and Samantha Gongol (vocals/songwriting), the pair’s roots can be traced back as far as a middle school talent show that saw Lloyd - the son of a conductor and an opera singer - hear Gongol sing for the first time. Many a moon down the line, following a stint studying music composition at college for Lloyd while Gongol was cutting her teeth in New York as a songwriter, the pair reunited in the former’s bedroom studio.

    "Got It" and "Lips", the latest offerings from the duo, might be the finest syntheses of their output to date. Working under a modus operandi to fuse the simplicity of timeless songwriting with the dexterous craft of modern pop production, "Got It" finds itself in the middle of a head-on collision between sultry soul and whirring synth brass. "Lips", meanwhile, goes straight for the romantic jugular - flitting between emotive electronica and jittery, after-hours RnB.

    Citing influences ranging from Cole Porter to Kanye, from Ella Fitzgerald to Drake, while many artists define themselves by the mixture of inspirations they’ve concocted, Marian Hill go one step further: fusing disparate sources into a compound sound that’s hard to imagine ever having been apart.

    Marian Hill is joined live by bassist and saxophonist Steve Davit.

  • Hailing from Reykjavík, Iceland, Apparat Organ Quartet is a band that sometimes describe their music as "Machine Rock and Roll", and indeed the band's sound veers between pulsing floor-fillers and headbanging anthems, served with a mixture of Kraftwerk-inspired electronics, Daft Punk-like robot voices, and hard rock beats. The almost surreal melodies seem to be derived equally from medieval Gregorian chant, American cartoons and Russian Romantic music of the 19th century.

  • Dedicated to creating a new groove-based music, THE DIGS embody the unique perspective of diversity that could only come from Canada's multicultural melting pot, Toronto. To dig is to extract from the ground by breaking up earth, and The Digs are a band reaching down into the roots of American pop music and pulling up a vibrant sound that is an organically constructed embarrassment of riches.

    Ultimately, The Digs consist of close friendships built upon the love of music, and the love for one another, and it is this dedication which gives them a consistently renewed energy with each jam-packed gig, each infectious groove, each funky beat. Catch The Digs while you can!
