Broncho

Blasted grassland, the thin ribbon line of the freeway unspooling beneath wheels, skies stretched wide between mountaintop. It is dream music, foggy, atmospheric, the melodies you hear while you gazing out through fingerprint smeared windows into a constantly moving, metamorphing - landscape….

It makes sense then, that BRONCHO, born out of out a film project, its initial incarnation sparked when founder Ryan Lindsey was asked to create music, “to set to an early 80s punk film.” “That’s all I knew about it,” he remembers, “they were looking for songs that touched this era. And songs kept coming to me and turned something on inside of me artistically.” Lindsey found himself in the midst of prolific run of songs and he liked the idea “of starting out there and seeing where it could go.”

What’s evolved from those first tracks there has been a steady run of success, critical accolades and two full-length albums; 2011’s Can't Get Past the Lips, 2014’s Just Enough Hip to Be Woman. And beneath it all – the music has been constantly mutating and ceaselessly experimental. From that first inception as a soundtrack in 2010, BRONCHO has taken on a life of its' own – initial inspiration still there, but now pushing far beyond the stiff confines of score. And what began as an ode to ramshackle, high-energy early punk has become something deeper, weirder, and much more nuanced. The undercurrent of early 1980 punk is still there, but The Ramones pogo has been replaced more often by a kind of Love and Rockets inspired, honeyed, cotton-mouthed drift.

Double Vanity is Lindsey and band mates Ben King, Nathan Price and Penny Pitchlynn steadily moving ahead, transforming the raw angst of the first record into a sound decidedly more layered and complex. Tracks like “New Karma" or “Two Step" riff off the later explorations of punk, culling up refracted images of John Hughes prom nights, love songs echoing from a boom box held high. "Jenny Loves Jenae" and "Speed Demon" strut with an when 80s met 50s swagger, discord transformed into a jagged, frenetic pop. "Señora Borealis" is all bad boy sneer - sensual, moody, with a sly and predatory swagger. "I Know You" is simultaneously infectious and brooding, somehow both exalting and heartsick.
The result is a record that veers gleefully from BRONCHO’s roots, moving from graffiti spray backrooms into a sleeker, plusher sound, a place bright with the polished gleam of chrome and bleached white sunlight. Close your eyes and what you feel is the raw wound pulse of adolescence, what you see behind your lids is suburban shopping mall wastelands, glazed eyes, dead grass, lips glossed in bubblegum pink. There is the burst chest thump of teenage longing, the smell of hairspray and cigarette. There is glow of neon and the glint of streetlight rolling across hood.
Double Vanity evokes a shared nostalgia, for the past and for the unknown future, as BRONCHO takes a turn off the wide freeways and into a world of intimate, intricate - but always universal - emotion.

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…

Spirit Animal

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.
