    W/ Kid Froopy

    Terror Jr is a dark electro-pop trio who emerged under an air of mystique in 2016. When the group's debut single "3 Strikes" appeared in a three-minute Kylie Jenner makeup commercial that spring, it led to rumors that the reality TV celeb might be the unknown band's lead singer. (The band and Jenner later dismissed the rumor on social networking.)

    It was soon revealed that two of the group's founding members were established pop/EDM songwriter David Singer-Vine, aka Campa of the Cataracs, and producer/electro-pop artist Felix Snow. The pair met in 2014, then reconnected a year later when they both worked on the single "Gold" for Atlantic Records artist Kiiara. With the third member being a lead singer referred to only as "Lisa," and the appearance of promotional photos that obscured bandmembers' faces, speculation about her identity persisted.

    More singles, including "Sugar" and "Say So" followed that spring and summer, and the group's debut album, Bop City, appeared in October 2016 on Atlantic imprint EFFESS. A play on Snow's initials, the label was established by Snow and Singer-Vine. ~ Marcy Donelson, Rovi

    This Is the Kit's rise to recognition was as slow and steady as the subtle, quiet way their alternative folk seeped into an ever-increasing audience's consciousness. The name was essentially an alias for British musician Kate Sables, along with regular contributors among the ever-revolving ones. She was born and raised in the English town of Winchester, and was absorbed by music at an early age, learning both trumpet and guitar.

    Like many great Southern storytellers, singer-songwriter Tyler Childers has fallen in love with a place. The people, landmarks and legendary moments from his childhood home of Lawrence County, Kentucky, populate the 10 songs in his formidable debut, Purgatory, an album that’s simultaneously modern and as ancient as the Appalachian Mountains in which events unfold. The album, co-produced by Grammy Award winners Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson, is a semiautobiographical sketch of Childers’ growth from wayward youth to happily married man, told in the tradition of a Southern gothic novel with a classic noir antihero who may just be irredeemable. Purgatory is a chiaroscuro painting with darkness framing light in high relief. There’s catharsis and redemption. Sin and temptation. Murder and deceit. Demons and angels. Moonshine and cocaine. So much moonshine and cocaine. All played out on the large, colorful canvas of Eastern Kentucky.

    When Dean Lewis’s aching, enigmatic debut single “Waves” has seduced music lovers across the planet – earning the Sydney-based singer-songwriter high rotation on Triple J and a place on influential digital playlists worldwide – the sudden success was accompanied by a delicious sense of irony.

    “I came up with that song in about a day, sitting in an apartment in London,” explains Lewis. “I was in the UK, writing and recording, living the dream basically, and I was wondering why I wasn’t enjoying myself, thinking how weird the whole thing was. ‘Waves’ flowed from that feeling: ‘Why can’t I enjoy this!’ Next day I travelled to this beautiful little studio in the English countryside and recorded the song in one session. Funnily enough, ever since, I’ve been enjoying everything a whole lot more!” Despite that, the song’s perfect balance of intimacy and intensity, married to the honesty that lights the dappled regrets Lewis articulates, helped it connect immediately.

    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.

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!
