Group Text, Cheem, Futurists, Taxing

"Cheem's elasticity isn't limited to an instrument. Sure, the Hartford boys' guitars do bounce and snap as most energetic indie should, with the drums shocked and wobbling in time. What began on 2016's Making a Planet as finding the perfect mix of enveloping rhythm and atmosphere continues with "Spiral," the band's latest single ahead of their speedy follow-up. Here, the ambition is tuned a little higher – whether in the infectious chorus, the way the vocals flirt with soul and sharpness...The result is a band firmly planted towards their future, whether on stage or mapping a new world with their recently unearthed pop-rock sensibilities rocketing upward." -James Cassar

Major Player, Morrowville

Major Player is the creation of songwriter and instrumentalist Jeffrey York. A native of Syracuse, York has spent years writing in the indie rock vein, with influences that span from Pop to Experimental. Building on the success of previous projects such as the rock outfit Animal Pants, Major Player is Indie Rock rooted in Soul and R&B.
York first broke ground on Major Player with help from drummer Liz Strodel and producer Andrew Greacen. What began as an experiment in hip-hop beat-making transformed into a full fledged indie rock ensemble. The latest configuration of Major Player includes Brent Spreter on Bass, Stephen Collie on drums, Ian Doherty and Deion Patterson on Keys.
In the summer of 2016 Major Player released its debut album “Extended Play.” The record is deliberate in its simplicity, intentionally lo-fi and moody. The tonality of these songs call up something dream like and familiar, making use of repetition and overlapping layers that build on one another. With lyrics that explore the shadowy faces of love and age, Major Player maintains a pop driven focus, while delivering dark creative melodies and catchy vocal hooks.

Kayo Dot, El Malpais, Pullover

Kayo Dot is an American avant-rock/experimental music group that was formed in 2003 by Toby Driver. They released their debut album Choirs of the Eye on John Zorn's Tzadik Records label that year. Tzadik's descriptive label on that album reads: "Kayo Dot powerfully integrates elements of modern classical composition with the layers of guitars and vocals more common to rock and metal. With a compositional map that is strict in form yet malleable in execution, Kayo Dot uses a vast array of instrumentation to create an exciting convergence of violence and serenity."
Since then, Kayo Dot's music has undergone several identity shifts, largely influenced by the band's constantly-changing lineup and instrumentation. One predominant element of Driver's compositional voice which remains consistent throughout all of Kayo Dot's output, however, is the band's use of abstract timing and performance cues. This lends to the music the element of "malleability" mentioned in Tzadik's description above.
The music of Kayo Dot is commonly categorized as post-metal, post-rock, progressive rock, or avant-garde. Their songs involve complex instrumentation (composed by singer and frontman Driver). They are substantially longer than typical rock songs, usually ranging from 8 to 18 minutes in length.

Louisiana native and Austin resident Ben Millburn released a two part EP series called The Balance EPs over the last year. Austin Town Hall described Part I as "brimming with the perfect backing harmony and this swelling of huge guitar riffs that ring out in your speaker long after the tune is over." PopMatters described Part II as "downright chilly, like if Kurt Vile’s weirdest stuff was even more glacial and empty. Its folksy guitar is less down-home friendliness and more tumbleweedy desert, no life around for miles." Millburn is joined live by his new group, Sunglass Moustache, who bring the records to life and who make the live show a unique psychedelic rock and roll experience.

Dollar Signs, Bad Idols, Aloha Broha, Pink Pots

There’s a fear to growing old in a world that doesn’t care about you, and Dollar Signs can relate; as a diverse group of friends who try to solve their problems in sweat-soaked rooms and dingy basements, singing and dancing away the fear. It’s group therapy for weekend warriors who have to work jobs that they hate. It’s a gala of cheap beer and sweaty hugs. Dollar Signs may as well be the band that played on the deck of the Titanic as it sank into the freezing ocean. We’re all in this together, and Dollar Signs knows that. After the release of their self-released full length album, Yikes, the band has been hitting the road and getting acquainted with the van - and now two tours, three blown tires, a branded hot sauce, and a family-size box of Tums later, they’re ready to do it again. This may not last forever, but for now, while there’s still a tinge of hopelessness in the air, Dollar Signs needs to party with you, because it’s the only way to survive the times.

The AWARD WINNING BEACH FORMAL 6! Featuring: Sext Message, Crunk Witch, Minimums, The Gore Gore Luchadores, and Death Fair 2000

Jonathan and Stephanie Hughes are the married duo known as Sext Message.  Their musical adventure together began in the fall of 2013, though Jonathan was a veteran of the local Charlotte punk scene for many years prior.

Their start came when their comedian friend was hosting a variety/stand-up show with a female headliner and was searching for a female-fronted band to open the show.  After a whirlwind writing process, a month later Sext Message made their debut with a handful of mildly offensive songs and a Roland AX-9.

Since their first show the duo has gained a reputation and following for their high energy, danceable live show, that feels more like a party than a performance.  

Armed with two keytars and their companion light show, they just released their sophomore album, Brace Yourself, and are booking dates across the southeastern US.

PPR, Joules, Asbestos Boys, "The Southern Madman" Tom Stover

PPR is from atlanta. They have been playing long enough to know better. PPR formed in the summer of 2002 at "the farm," a cabin in the woods owned by Brian's family. Not much was actually farmed there except insanity, which requires no watering and minimal upkeep. The band wrote much of the material for their self titled EP at the farm. Following the exodus from and subsequent burning/destruction of the farm PPR wrote and recorded Diarrhea, a 34 song blast which is awesome but a little hard for some people to take. The band did a tour of the east coast to support the album, as well as countless shows closer to Atlanta. Trying to follow up Diarrhea proved difficult, with the band recording two unreleased albums, one acoustic and one electric. Original drummer Alex Picca left Atlanta around this time, and the drum chair was filled by Chris Costello. At this point Chris was playing with local band Dented, and Spencer was occupied playing with the also local band Sovus Radio. Following the demise of both of these bands PPR regained focus, and recorded material for their next two albums at the world famous Milestone Club in Charlotte, NC. The music from this marathon recording/drinking session was divided into two parts, "Crab," an instrumental surf EP, and "Breakfast" a heavy and somewhat experimental album. PPR recently completed their latest album, "the robot destroyer: part 1," recorded and produced by Jason Nesmith. Drummer Chris Costello left the band soon after completing "Robot Destroyer," prompting the return of Alex Picca. PPR is happy now, and that's all that matters.

Bitter Inc., The Emotron, Pray 4 Triangle Zero, Camping

The modern music industry creates serious distortions in the artist as a result of capitalism. Marx described perfectly the alienation of the worker from his product, and especially the ultra-specialization of each worker into their own unique class. The industry tries to force artists into single genres. Every artist is supposed to be "marketable" which means conforming to a specific pre-made mold. Even the "alternative" clubs seem to cater only to a "specific crowd" not wanting to challenge them. I have been shunned from punk clubs for being atypical just as much as I have been shunned from acoustic and pop clubs. It's why I don't CALL myself punk- at the moment it becomes a factory-repeatable pressing, it loses its vitality. I'm sorry, people, you're just going to have to take what I give you. You get a catchy melody; that's my concession. But the music is mine to make. Any real radicals or rebels left (if they're out there) should appreciate what I do immediately. I don't want your shrink-wrapped electric guitar rock any more than I want to play shrink-wrapped techno pop. I won't be alienated from my own vision in an effort to trade life for $$$.

Hollow Earth was a thought between members Mike Moynihan (Guitar) Steve Muczynski (Vocals) and Aaron Goodrich (Drums) during their stint of touring with legendary hardcore band Shai Hulud during November 2010. One year later, almost to the date, the three friends decided to take that thought more seriously.

Their objective with Hollow Earth was to write sincere music and begin touring as much as possible. Quickly recruiting Dave Giandiletti (Guitar) and Jake Hicks (Bass) to complete the line up they wrote a six song EP entitled We Are Not Humanity within the two and half months of their inception and headed off to record at Getaway Group in Massachusetts with Jay Maas (Defeater, Verse, Shipwreck).

On We Are Not Humanity Hollow Earth draw on the influence of legendary bands like Turmoil and Buried Alive, capturing the energy and anger of hardcore that has been lost on so many new bands. Hollow Earth's lyrics are dark with thought provoking premonitions that paint a picture of impending doom that threatens the human existence. Riding into our demise, there's no turning back, the decimation of our world is eminent and Hollow Earth is the perfect soundtrack to play us out.
