Mayflower Madame is a band from Oslo, Norway that specializes in a dark and distinctive blend of psychedelia, shoegaze and post-punk. Imagine a mixture of The Jesus & Mary Chain, Bauhaus, The Black Angels and A Place To Bury Strangers - a seductive beast that walks you through suggestive depths in a dynamic soundscape. Their debut album "Observed in a Dream" (released Spring 2016) received excellent reviews both in their home country Norway and abroad.
Arbouretum (Record Release Show!)
Arbouretum has been called “the best of the millennial classic rock bands, a guitar-fuzzed powerhouse.” The band, founded by guitarist and vocalist Dave Heumann, effortlessly weaves its melodies and guitar solos with the often hypnotic rhythms of bassist Corey Allender and drummer Brian Carey around the deliberate keyboard of Matthew Pierce to lift the vocals. The results are a full sound delivered with a striking sense of intimacy. Throughout their time together, the Baltimore-based band have been praised for their ability to weave elaborate vocal lines, and guitar solos that often unravel into extended improvisation, but never with as much finesse as on Song of the Rose. In less practiced hands, these ideas could easily fall into contrivance, but on Song of the Rose, Arbouretum use these elements to perfect their craft of storytelling in song, both lyrically and sonically.
Russian Baths is a band from Brooklyn, NY. Their debut track, "Ambulance," premiered on Stereogum.
The band treats feedback and harmony with equal significance. By incorporating dissonance into traditional song structures, their sound recalls Big Black's caustic fits, '70s space rock, Chapel Hill's noise pop, Big Muff driven grunge, and the angular arrangements of British post punk. Their cassette single, Ambulance, was released April 15th on Time Castle with a limited run.
Russian Baths is Luke Koz, Jess Ress, Evan Gill Smith, and Jeff Widner.
