He's My Brother, She's My Sister
He’s My Brother She’s My Sister are crafting music that is multi-genre; part glam folk, garage country, cabaret blue and cirque rock. To say that they’re energetic only scratches the surface of their live performances. They are truly a “harmonic convergence of melody” with brother/sister vocals, a tap dancing drummer, always moving bass lines and slide guitar woven throughout like lightening that joins the earth and the sky.
Song Preservation Society
"What the Shins are to the movie Garden State, Song Preservation Society could be to a potential Golden State."
Song Preservation Society started is Trevor Bahnson, Ethan Glazer and Daniel Wright. Their debut EP, Ready Room, was recorded in the fall of 2012 with guidance from the much-respected Nino Moschella, master of coaxing masterful production out of a modest multitrack. Ready Room is Song Preservation Society's from-the-heart music brought to full and beautiful life with brass and woodwinds and strings and even fuzz guitar. It's seven songs with a strange kind of purity that points to something timeless. In 1966, it could have fit between the Beach Boys, Simon and Garfunkel and Love; in 1976, it'd make people think of the last Big Star album; right now it shines through bands like Fleet Foxes and The Shins to be a ray of light all its own. When they started out, they might have picked that name just for fun. But on Ready Room, they've really made something worth preserving.
Strange Vine's earthy, energetic music is a fusion of blues, psychedelic, and traditional American rock. It's a sound born of California's Sierra Nevada Mountains, from two men who were raised there. Ian Blesse plays drums and Rhodes piano (simultaneously), while Toby Cordova fleshes out the songs with a rotating arsenal of guitars (including one made from a cigar box). Both contribute vocals toward a rich, layered sound that's greater than the sum of its parts. In just a year's time, Strange Vine has already shared the stage with acts like The Black Keys, Cage The Elephant, Band Of Skulls, B.B. King, The Growlers, White Denim, Robin Trower, The Greenhornes, Pokey LaFarge and JEFF The Brotherhood.
Horizons, time. The sad truths of society's most accepted emotions. Dreams, insignificance. Events leading up to epiphanies, spells easily creating what should be. Stars sweeping across your soul with ideas of what the night will eventually hold, fears. The freedom of summertime, easy going lifestyles. Grooving beneath the everlasting moonlight glow. Frustration, beauty. Waiting, forever questioning. A desert tracking vacation spent hidden behind the shade of your own shadow, a psychedelic excursion we're all checking in to.
– Sincerely, California
