Sun Seeker: Sun Seeker has drawn applause for their unhurried breed of Cosmic American Music and with BIDDEFORD (Third Man Records), their 2017 debut EP, the Nashville-based band more than affirm their promise. The EP –which follows Sun Seeker’s widely acclaimed Third Man debut single, 2016’s “Georgia Dust” b/w “No One Knows” (TMR322) –sees Alex Benick (guitar, vocals), Asher Horton (bass guitar, vocals), and Ben Parks (drums, vocals) exploring nostalgia, melancholy, and emotional turmoil via laidback psychedelia pollinated with tight harmonies, classic folk songcraft, and country rock spirit, an ageless approach that is simultaneously archetypal and now utterly their own. Sun Seeker has toured extensively, supporting acts such as Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Peach Pit, The Districts, and Jessica Lea Mayfield. 2019 will see their long awaited full length album release (produced by Pat Sansone -Wilco, Autumn Defense), accompanied with much more touring and festival plays soon to be announced.
Duncan Fellows: The music of Duncan Fellows explores multiple vibes, feelings, tempos, and perspectives—and often in the same song. With the new EP Eyelids Shut, thefive-piece from Austin explores that dynamic balance while concurrently toeing a similar line in their own lives. Following the release of two EPs—2013’s Twelve Months Older and 2015’sMarrow—while the band members were in college, the Duncan Fellows debut full-length Both Sides of the Ceiling dropped in 2017 and put the band firmly on the map. Featuring the good-time earworm of a single “Fresh Squeezed” and an entire album’s worth of upbeat rhythms, head-nodding riffs, and playful, pleasant harmonies, the record was championed by local radio, leading to a bevy of Spotify spins. Audiences fell in love with the Fellows’ passionate approach and charismatic energy, flocking to see them onstage in action with acts like
Houndmouth, Middle Kids, The Drums, Whitney, and Wilderado, as well as at slots playing festivals like Austin City Limits and SXSW. But while the band embrace their reputation as a fun-loving band of buddies making feel-good indie jams, they also acknowledge that this perception only represents one side of their coin.
Sixteen Jackies: Philadelphia-based rock band Sixteen Jackiesmake music that is often nostalgic, yet defies easy categorization. Pulling influence from glam, new-wave, early alternative (Sonic Youth, Pixies), and horror movies, they've crafted a unique set of torch songs for weirdos and misfits of all kinds that tie together into a tight and theatrical live show.
