Watch & Listen
LEAGUES is Thad Cockrell (lead vocal), Tyler Burkum (guitar), Mike Simons (bass) and Jeremy Lutito (drums).
The members of LEAGUES have been around long enough to not be naïve, but have also managed to hold what they do with the right amount of reverence and wonder. They know that in order for music
to connect in this age of segmentation and uber-fragmented music landscapes that it is going to take something just short of a miracle. They admit that they must rely on others to catch the vision or to put
it in the fashion of a typical southern colloquialism, "it's going to take a lot of water to make this thing float."
Leagues wants to connect with people. The way they see it, the music is as much audiences as it is the bands. While they obviously are making music that they love, they also have the listener's pleasure and joy in mind. Ultimately, they would like their music to transcend the fractures in popular music and invite everyone to engage with the songs and take ownership of them.
The Dig is a four-piece psych pop band based in New York City, consisting of Emile Mosseri (bass/vocals), David Baldwin (guitar/vocals), Erick Eiser (keyboards/guitar), and Mark Demiglio (drums).
The band released its full length album Midnight Flowers in 2012, and its Tired Hearts EP in 2013. The Dig's first album Electric Toys was released in 2010.
The Dig's singers Emile Mosseri and David Baldwin started playing together when they were 10 years old. The band used to rehearse next door to The Strokes, which led to early comparisons between the two bands.
They have toured with such bands as The Antlers, The Walkmen, Portugal. The Man, and Editors.
