The inspiration for Ages and Ages’ latest album came from a trip to Central America where two of the band members saw how nature was reclaiming the indigenous ruins. ‘Something To Ruin’, out Aug. 19 on Partisan Records, is the Portland, OR band’s third album, and it explores the consequences of our superficial and commercial actions and what comes next. “They Want More”is spirited song with the band’s signature harmonies that reflects the message of their upcoming LP. “They Want More” is WFPK‘s Download Of The Week, so grab it while you can!
Indie rock pioneers Rogue Wave have returned with their latest release ‘Delusions Of Grand Fur’. Infectious songs like “California Bride” push the band’s signature bright,melodic sound in new, engaging and surprising directions. Check out their latest single “California Bride”.
Caveman is done being an indie rock band playing for indie rock fans alone. They have their sights set on bigger goals, so on their third time around they made their biggest-sounding album yet.“Never Going Back”is the first single off their recently released third album“Otero War”. Caveman will be playing Forecastleon July 25th.
Sunflower Bean’s latest album ‘Human Ceremony’ has been creating quite a buzz nationally, and getting lots of spins at WFPK. The New York-based trio is currently busy taking their show on the road and will be appearing at Zanzabar on June 11. We asked them to share with us what they’ve been listening to lately while touring in the van. Here’s a few of the tunes that Julia, Nick & Jacob put together for us. Enjoy!
Dam that River- Alice in Chains Love this song. Alice in Chains is kind of corny but also very amazing.
Dum Dum Boys- Iggy Pop
This song, along with the rest of “The Idiot” has been on repeat in the tour van for a while now
This is kind of a crazy song but is also so awesome. If you aren’t familiar with Tonstartssbandht, definitely check them out. They’ve been making some of the most ethereal music for a while now and are always the best live band.
Pizza Pasta- Night Manager
Night Manager is unfortunately no longer a band. But through their short existence they released a bunch of songs that left a impression on me and Nick.
Magical Date Night- Total Slacker
After the first time I saw Total Slacker live at Cheap Storage my life was changed. I was instantly hooked on the music and infinitely more excited about the future because I finally saw a future with rock n roll.
What You Want- Sheer Mag
Sheer Mag is also a constant in the tour van. Some of the best riffage in recent history.

27 year old MARGARET GLASPY boasts a diverse musical background from competitive fiddle to marching band trombone. But with influences ranging from Joni Mitchell to Elliott Smith, she focuses her talents in fiercely raw, guitar-driven pop songs. Rolling Stone hailed first single “You and I” for its “hot barbs of electric guitar,” and BrooklynVegan declared it a “stomping rocker with a DGAF attitude” Glaspy’s debut album will be released June 17th on ATO Records.
