Chad Valley are the personal outpourings of one Hugo Manuel, the balearic inclined vocalist of Oxford's Jonquil and founder member of the Blessing Force collective.
Taking a more electronic approach to sunset vibes, Hugo has made quite a splash this past summer. In his short 25 show career he's already played in Dublin, Paris, Budapest, Belgrade and Istanbul, been a big smash at In The City and supported the likes of Amiina, Mountain Goats and Foals. His music has been on every blog you can think of from Gorilla vs. Bear to Pitchfork's Forkcast, the latter of which has featured him three times in recent months and at one point in late October was the fourth most blogged about artist on the planet.
He's enjoyed a host of radio plays across the BBC and had his debut BBC session recorded for Huw Stephens' show in January 2011.
Chad Valley's debut EP is out on Service's US imprint Cascine (USA / UK / JP / Scan) and French label Maman (EU) and a follow up is slated for release this coming Spring in UK, US and Japan.
Ski Lodge is a two-way mirror into the mind of Andrew Marr:
multi-instrumentalist, expressionist, and the newest member of the
Dovecote Records family. Marr's inward-looking, earnest surf pop
suggest, instead of Summer, a longing for Summer on an early Spring
day. By funneling influences ranging from The Morning Benders to
Arcade Fire and The Smiths into the sound of the Strokes and Vampire
Weekend, Marr manages to bypass the epic, opting for a more brassy,
lilting croon. It's music about forgiveness, youth, and staying on the
long, meandering path toward an eventual home
Bogan Via is Bret William Bender and Madeline Miller. Wait Up is the band’s debut extended play album and it develops their distinctive electronic-folk sound.
Wait Up was then recorded in late 2012 over a period of several weeks at Flying Blanket Recording in Mesa, AZ and mixed at The Blasting Room in Fort Collins, CO. The band co-produced the record with Bob Hoag (The Format, The Ataris).
Bogan Via has made a quite a mark on the scene, quickly playing packed shows including a southwest jaunt with Geographer. Bogan Via’s ability to win over fans with their unique sound has already earned them opening spots for the likes of Todd Terje, Darwin Deez, Twin Shadow, Austra, Yacht, and many more, as well as remixes by Miniature Tigers, Geographer and others.
For now, Bogan Via’s graceful and danceable indie rock is still under the radar, but they are quickly rising to the surface, bringing their melodies and pulsating beats with them. Over the past year, Bogan Vias’ music has been featured on every blog from Consequence of Sound to My Old Kentucky Blog. With overwhelming responses to first listens of the record, this is the year that Bogan Via will start to make a splash.
