Kind of Like Spitting
Indie cult favorites Kind of Like Spitting formed in 1996 in Portland, Oregon. The band, led by singer-songwriter Ben Barnett, regularly toured in the US and released twelve albums in a span of just seven years. They broke-up in 2006 but Barnett re-formed the band earlier this year. Chunky guitars contrasted with eloquent, driving bass lines and washed out, incredibly hooky vocals abound — this is one of our all-time favorite bands.
The songs of Haunted Summer are dreamy and hypnotic, rich with orchestral strings and sultry electronic textures, and with their 2013 EP, Something in the Water, the group crafted a captivatingly-ethereal musical journey through a nostalgic world of young love and long-forgotten memories. Consisting of husband-and-wife Bridgette Moody and John Seasons, who share songwriting duties in a true collaboration, the Los Angeles duo have shared the stage and toured with groups and performers including Taken By Trees, The Polyphonic Spree, Islands, Deafheaven, Coeur De Pirate, Olafur Arnalds, Carla Morrison, Meiko, Basia Bulat, Federico Aubele, Laura Stevenson and more. They have toured the country and played venues such as The El Rey Theatre, The Great American Music Hall, The Levitt Pavilion, Amoeba Hollywood, The Observatory OC, The Glasshouse, Crescent Ballroom, North Park Theater, The Chapel, The Beauty Bar Las Vegas, Pianos, The Casbah and many more. Having completed a nine-date tour with Islands and other tour dates with David J of Bauhaus and Jacco Gardner, a 14-date headlining tour across the country, plus a month-long residency in San Francisco, Haunted Summer is poised to bring their enchantingly-psychedelic sound to the world.
Haunted Summer crafts languid pop music, adorned with orchestral strings and electronic textures that recall Soft Bulletin-era Flaming Lips.-Candice Aman (KXSC Radio)
Haunted Summer, lives up to its name with an even more enchanting series of dream-pop shimmers, as Bridgette Eliza Moody's vocals trail off languidly in the jet stream of husband John Seasons' majestic emissions. -Falling James (LA Weekly)
Windswept vocals, sultry strings and spacey guitar blend together beautifully. The whole thing is mysterious and engrossing enough that it gets under your skin and stirs your own private nostalgia. -Billy Gil (Amoeba Blog)
Haunted Summer features Bridgette Moody and John Seasons, who share songwriting and performing duties in a true collaboration. The result is a very pretty, psychedelic sound with ethereal vocals from Bridgette, who comes into her own as a lead vocalist. -Julia Stoller (The Boston Music Survival Guide)
