Paper Thick Walls
Paper Thick Walls presents an elegant mix of deep, reflective, and at times haunting music that is littered with small specs of colorful light. Their songs quickly caught the attention of sound engineer Mike Hagler (Neko Case, Wilco) who engineered Paper Thick Walls’ first record, to be released in early 2011 and supported with a strong US tour. This past year, Paper Thick Walls was asked to play at several taste maker music festivals including North by Northeast, South by Southwest, and CMJ Music Marathon.
The Fatty Acids
It's pretty much considered a scientific fact that the fatty acids are essential to humans. So. There you have it. Also, these guys have been kicking up raw, carefree, pop-ish tunes in their native Milwaukee for about two years, and we strongly suggest you come dance along while they're in town.
The Kuhls is the collaborative project of sisters Renee and Grace Kuhl, brought to life by their kickass monster-slaying, demon-defying rock band. Raised in Kansas, now based in Chicago, the sisters enlist their friends in some explicit urban guitar slashing while unconsciously maintaining a firm grip on their roots. Their first full-length album Holy Rollin was released independently in February 2013.
Holy Rollin' is an independent release featuring twelve songs that span the Kuhls' diverse sonic influences... 90s grunge/70s rock n roll/country western/girl pop all find meeting places in the songwriting of sisters Renee and Grace Kuhl. Joining them on the album are good friends from the Chicago area: Luke Otwell (People's Temple of America) on electric guitar and lap slide, Gregg Midon (Sons of the West) on drums, Anthony DeSanto (Sons of the West) on electric guitar and Kyle Crager (Soft Candy, Odd Folk) on bass.
"It’s a nasty bit of business, in the country-tinged rock ballad tradition of the Rolling Stones or Gram Parsons... “Holy Rollin’ ” documents the newfound grit in the guitars and vocals in songs both bittersweet and biting." - Greg Kot, Chicago Tribune
"...an intriguing conflation of folk, country and rock that finds fresh ways to showcase that familiar combination." - TimeOut Chicago
