Broncho

Oklahoma's BRONCHO capture the aggression, DIY authenticity and youthful exhilaration of a bygone era and then drag it by the hair into the Here and Now, creating a fresh sound that's unlike anything being played today. With echoes of The Replacements, Iggy and the Stooges and The Ramones, Broncho's exuberant ten song debut Can't Get Past the Lips is a blisteringly cathartic 20 minute flash of gritty, crunching guitar work supported by an assaultive rhythm section and made whole by songwriter Ryan Lindsey's aggressive, yelping vocal work.

Lindsey's vocals and guitar are supported by Johnathon Ford (bass), Ben King (guitar) and Nathan Price (drums). The project began as an off-the-cuff recording session for Lindsey (who also plays keys for Starlight Mints, in addition to performing as a solo artist). He quickly laid down early versions "Pick a Fight" and "Losers" with the assistance of King (Cheyenne) and Price (Native Lights), and then sent them to Ford (Unwed Sailor), asking for feedback. Ford loved the songs so much that he suggested they begin playing shows as a band.

"The next thing I knew, Johnathon had a show booked in Tulsa," Lindsey says.
That first show, a manic, ultra-lean showcase of six songs that clocked in at less than 15 minutes, occurred in February of 2010, since then the band has toured across the U.S. and released their debut album Can't Get Past The Lips to international acclaim.

The collective talent and cumulative experience of all involved with Broncho has resulted in an album that, for all its dirty-dishwater punk roots, is a masterwork of garage/pop simplicity. Speaking of the band's reference points, Lindsey says "We all love the way those records sound so we naturally went in that direction, as far as fidelity goes. But more than anything, it's the attitude of an era that I wasn't around for, but feel a connection with. We didn't set out to recreate a record from that era, we just took on that message and made it our own."

Or, as Ford puts it: "It's not nostalgia, it's natural."

Denney & The Jets

Denney and The Jets play an unbridled brand of hip-shakin' Rock & Roll with heavy Soul and Country influences. The Nashville, TN-based band is steeped in its hometown's institution of Country Music
as much as it is a part of the new wave of young Nashville Rock bands with an enlightened view (and sound) of the future.

Frontman Chris Denney began writing songs in the Spring of 2008, recruiting Wes Traylor (Natural
Child), and Jake and Jamin Orrall (of JEFF The Brotherhood) to be the very first of his Jets. After
each member parted ways to pursue their own individual careers, Chris signed on Daniel Pujol eponymously of PUJUOL) and Joe Scala. After Pujol's departure, Denney solidified the lineup by
adding longtime friend Sean Cotton on lead guitar, Joe's little brother Evan Scala and most recently bringing in Ric Alessio on keys and sax. Denney and The Jets have turned songwriting into a fully
realized communal process and have grown in to one of the South's finest.

After releasing a 7" single and EP (a limited Cassette only release) on JEFF The Brotherhood's Infinity
Cat Reco rdings, the band returns with their new 5-song Self-Titled EP on Miami, FL-based label Limited Fanfare Records -- Recorded in the Spring of 2012 with Producer/Engineer Andrija Tokic (Alabama
Shakes, The Parting Gifts) -- with "Close The Blinds" recorded at Cleft Music by Nashville legend,
Loney Hutchins. The result is an insanely fiery batch of tunes that Nashville Cream calls "[Straight-up
rock and roll music] — not bastardized, compromised, corrupted or contaminated."

Denney and The Jets are currently recording their Debut LP in Nasvhille, TN with Producer Andrija Tokic at The Bomb Shelter for release in early Fall 2013.

Don't miss out on your favorite new band...Seriously…

Recent blog chatter and "recommended if you like" comparisons indicate the following: Spirit Animal sounds like 90's Red Hot Chili Peppers meeting LCD Soundsystem when, suddenly, both are karate chopped in the neck by Faith No More.

The band's most recent release, a 7-inch for "I'm Around" out on Mecca Lecca Records, debuted on AOL's Spinner.com, has received radio play on shows ranging from KROQ's "Jonesy's Jukebox" to WBRU's "Exposure" in Providence and WCHZ's "The Radar" in Augusta, and was accompanied by a month-long residency at NYC's Pianos. The video landed on popular blogs like You Aint No Picasso and the soulful burner was used in an HBO "How to Make It In America" promo.

In 2010, Spirit Animal released their debut LP, "The Cost of Living," a unique and powerful blend of rock, psychedelia and dance. The album garnered similarly broad radio play and earned the band placements on shows like ABC's "Happy Endings."

On stage, Spirit Animal is at once manic and precise with a non-stop show full of big solos, wild sing-along moments and sweat. The group's presence has landed them on the bill with Free Energy, Wallpaper, Dam-Funk, Wale, The Heavy and Fitz and the Tantrums.

With mixing underway on the first tracks of their follow-up full length, "Kingdom Phylum Class Order Family Genus Species Spirit Animal," Spirit Animal is poised to deliver the back-breaking rock and shit-kicking funk missing from the modern music landscape.
