Carroll’s first ever performance was just Brian Hurlow, alone, smashing his feet on a broken keyboard to trigger samples. Little did he know, ambient guitar sorcerer Max Kulicke and iconic drummer Charlie Rudoy were watching from afar. They joined and took the seeds of Brian’s sadness and grew them into jungles. It was only a matter of time until Charles McClung arrived and with a wave of his wand completed the Carroll lineup with tightrope bass lines and glass synths. After months of deep touring, the scattered parts of their first full length album were arranged neatly on the floor of their Minneapolis home, and they sent them to renowned engineer Jon Low (The National, The War on Drugs, Mr. Twin Sister). Jon was game and so the band shipped out to Philly to record their eponymous Carroll (Eone, 2015) in a headrush of 18 days. Carroll’s second record, also mixed by Low, tells a story of being adrift, of orbiting in and out of the lives of others. With heavy emphasis on synth syrup and dense, classic arrangements, Carroll’s 2016 follow up pulls the listener into a blissful, sometimes chaotic futuristic world.
Alpenglow is currently working on their 2nd LP. They're recording it with Hunter Davidson (Porches, Frankie Cosmos, Sheer Mag). They expect to be done sometime in 2017. They feel really excited about it, and they feel the most positive about being a band they've ever felt. They also think their live show is the most interesting it's ever been. It feels good to know the music is getting better and better. Alpenglow has been a band of best friends since 2011.
Lizdelise is a dreamy rock/pop duo from Philadelphia. Angular guitar lines meet looper and drum machine to create energized, intricate soundscapes — and a serious amount of noise for two people. After Liz released her first solo full length in September 2016, Liz and Mark joined forces, hopped in Liz's 1994 GMC, and drove across the US and back. They're now working on their first collaborative full length. (For fans of St. Vincent, Handsome Furs, Wye Oak.)
