Watch & Listen
Lunar Mansion is a thunderous four-piece rock outfit based in Columbia, Missouri. This is a band that was formed with one simple goal: to deliver a visceral, blistering, rock and roll experience. Upon their formation in 2008, these boys quickly realized that they had tapped into a force of nature too powerful to be contained. The list of band members reads like a veritable rogue's gallery, featuring the incomparable Josh Wrong, the inconceivable Blango, the illustrious Mike Danger, and the impetuous Diggy Splash.
Lunar Mansion's debut album Nuclear Family is a blast of catchy hooks, pounding rhythms, and jagged guitar riffs. While the raw energy and excitement will no doubt catch your ear, the dynamics and atmosphere of this album are the reason you'll keep listening long after you've memorized every last word.
The Kay Brothers
~ Bonafide Hootin' n' Hollerin' Hillbillyin' Ozark Stompgrass and What Not ~
The spirit of Missouri 'Stompgrass' lives on in this brand spankin' new trio, The Kay Brothers. Though the group was born last night, the members are certainly no strangers to the Midwest music scene. Hailing from such bands as The Hipnecks, The Hatrick, Mary & the Giant, and even a metal band - Ghost in the Machine - the players have been burning barns down since they were knee-high's and can chug moonshine without shedding a single tear. Armed with Upright Bass, Fiddle, Guitar, Harmonicas, bass drum, washboard, and sibling harmonies, they make a lot of noise... Just be careful not to crack a heel.
Mandolin Orange is a duo/band, led by songwriter Andrew Marlin and vocalist/instrumentalist Emily Frantz. The duo ornaments lyric and harmony focused tunes with acoustic and electric guitars, fiddle and mandolin. Their sophomore double album, Haste Make/Hard Hearted Stranger released November 8, 2011.
A new breed of country music, soon to be burning its way into the heart of America.
