Tim Barry

Tim Barry has been kicking around the musical underground for nearly 20 years, first as the front man for legendary Virginian punk heroes Avail, and more recently as a singer-songwriter with a penchant for constructing beautiful folk and country tunes. Dude's been particularly busy the past few years, gigging relentlessly, including yearly participation in The Revival Tour with fellow travelers Chuck Ragan (Hot Water Music), Ben Nichols (Lucero), and Tom Gabel (Against Me!), and generating a steady stream of recordings. Late last year, he released a split 7" EP with pal Frank Turner (co-released by Epitaph and Suburban Home), while 2010 will see the arrival of "28th & Stonewall", Barry's third full length recording, a masterful collection of heartsick dirges, wry commentary, and upbeat stomp-alongs. Suburban Home Records.

Des Ark (Aimee Argote)

"Des Ark is a whole different animal. Aimée Argote's work is backwoods hippy stuff that is profane and vulgar as any lady has ever been. Her compositions are organic songs that are driven by her soulful voice holding strongly to its southern accent and are driven by acoustic guitars and pianos. If it was not for the grotesquely vulgar and overtly bi-sexual nature of her songs, they would be among the most gorgeous ever composed."

"So, you are at a party, and you see a girl in the corner reading a book and smoking a cig. You approach her because she is kind of cute, but then realize she has pit stains and is wearing a Cat Power shirt. ABORT! ABORT! Now, same scenario, but this time she is wearing a Des Ark shirt. FUCKING AWESOME! That's how much this band (primarily Aimée) rules."
