'On their latest full-length album, Bulls and Roosters, Together Pangea have managed to hit a sweet spot between writing rock ‘n’ roll songs worthy of being hummed twenty years from now and maintaining the brash and ballsy bite fans know and love. Since they began jamming back in William’s Santa Clarita bedroom, Together Pangea have continually challenged themselves with each subsequent offering. Jelly Jam  poured the gasoline, Living Dummy  struck the match, and Badillac  lit the fire with its revved up nineties rock-inspired flames. Along the way, fan favorites like “Sick Shit,” “Badillac,” and “Offer” would rack up millions of Spotify streams. “Snakedog” became a plot point in a bonkers episode of NCIS and “Sick Shit” soundtracked a trailer for HBO’s Animals, while the group received support from Consequence of Sound, Pitchfork, MTV, Stereogum, and more. Following the 2015 release of The Phage EP, produced by The Replacements’ Tommy Stinson, the boys independently embarked on the journey to what would become Bulls and Roosters. Now it represents their growth as a tried-and-true rock band with just the right amount of “brattiness,” as they like to say.'
There's somewhat of a paradox inherent in Vundabar's songwriting - a conflicting sense of nostalgia contrasted with the realization that they couldn't sound more current. The music they make feels like something that should have been heard a long time ago, while simultaneously continuing to forge ahead sonically. Vundabar's high energy live show is the stand out quality of this band and is an art they’ve undoubtedly perfected by touring non-stop around the country. Vundabar’s shows never fail to be captivating, complete with infectious jams, guitar moves galore, intricate drum work, and humorous stage banter to top it all off, the band has become known for putting on an entertaining show.
Rock band from Chicago, IL
From the fog, pop prevails. Members Emily Kempf, Eric McGrady and Jason Balla formed Dehd in the Summer of 2 thousand 15. Kempf and Balla's vocals meet and depart over wiggling guitar licks and the lazy rhythms of McGrady's stand-up drum kit. Dizzy days and desert nights are the stuff dreams are made of, as are the musical recordings Dehd have assembled.
