Garage pop laced with New York City grit, dark humor, and rock 'n' roll attitude. Born out of the American South, the first seeds for the group were planted when Josh Brocki and Manquillian Minniefee started messing around on guitar in high school down in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Fast forward to 2014: Josh and Manq, now living in Brooklyn, joined forces with Dallas, Texas-hailing Jesse Starr and Andrew "Ace" Jernigan to create Night Spins (FKA The Boobies).
Calling upon their experience working at burlesque clubs, circus shows, and raunchy variety clubs across NYC, the four-piece band melds its theatrical background with influences like Iggy Pop, Modest Mouse, and David Byrne for an unrivaled—and must-see—display of contemporary showmanship. So what does that sound like? Sizzling riffs, earworm hooks, raw vocals—all imbued with a Southern-bred shake of the supernatural. Fans who go to see Night Spins know one thing: They're gonna get a show.
The Georgia Flood
Groove-heavy and Genre-bending, The Georgia Flood’s music has evolved over the years. Their new album, People Like Ourselves, draws on indelible melodies, clever lyrics, and an infectious energy; weaving together an EP that hits all the right notes. The Atlanta based duo, Lane Kelly and Brooks Mason, are brothers who began playing when they were seven and nine years old respectively. Hustling birthday parties and family reunions the brothers changed sounds numerous times through their teens. Drawing on their exploration of numerous genres, their songwriting channels classic guitar driving riffs with modern pop sensibilities.
Self-financed, the band went into Jason Hoard’s Black Cat Studio to put together the seven songs contained within their new EP. Don’t let the EP status fool you though, the band toiled over 30+ tracks to carve out their favorites, coalescing into seven songs that journey through themes of love, good times, and tragedy. “We had a really tough time choosing just a few,” explains Brooks, The Georgia Flood’s lead guitar player and singer,.“We had so many songs that really brought the listener to amazing moments.”
“Whistle King,” the records infectious first single, encompasses much of what the record is about. “On the surface it seems sort of nonsensical and fun but the song really describes how crazy our lifestyle is on the road,” explains Lane, who plays bass and sings harmonies. “Playing in an indie band is a constant state of discovery, and lyrically, “Whistle King” exemplifies much of that exhilaration and frustration.”
After the record’s release on December 2nd, The Georgia Flood will be touring throughout the Southeast into the New Year. With a dynamic live set, the band intends to bring their music to ears the good old fashioned way, one club at a time.
