Louisville’s seven member rock symphony In Lightning is set to release their new album “In Joy”, and 91.9 WFPK Presents In Lightning Album Release Show at Headliners Music HallFriday, August 26th. As the band’s bassist and composer Ben Short says, “The record has moments of tension, angst, or melancholy, for the purpose of highlighting those magical musical moments that are energizing or inspiring! All in all, we are making fun, lively, positive sounding music.” Check out one of the album’s tracks: “Turn It Wild”.
“Umpqua Rushing“, is the first single from Portland, Oregon-based sextetBlind Pilot‘s new album “And Then Like Lions”. The track deals directly with the end of frontman Israel Nebeker‘s relationship with his then girlfriend. It’s inspired by memories of them visiting the Umpqua River. The tune connects images of a forest fire to the destruction and new beginning found in love’s wake.
BADABADNOTGOOD is the talented young quartet who took the music world by storm with their 2014 LP, III, a brash yet refined record of angular jazz improvisations, lush ballads, kraut rock, & futuristic hip-hop tinged rhythms. That release led to a couple years of touring the world & collaborating with some of the best and brightest artists around the globe. The boys are back with the new album IV, their most impressive and highly anticipated project yet. Check out the track “Time Moves Slow” featuring the haunting vocals from guest Sam Herring of Future Islands.
Portland,OR rock band Summer Cannibalstook their name from a song by Patti Smith, which may give you a hint of their influences. Their third album‘Full Of It’on Kill Rock Stars, is a tirade of pure anarchic rock ‘n’ roll that smacks you round the chops and invades your ears. A noise so large and fuzzy it will leave a ringing in your brain. Led by guitarist/vocalist Jessica Boudreaux, the band is often compared to late 90’s Sleater-Kinney. Check out their lates single “Say My Name”.
They call it ‘Baroque Folk‘. Meticulous arrangements, strong singers and writers, and a gorgeous sound are at the heart of Asheville, North Carolina’s River Whyless. Their new album “We All The Light” (recorded and mixed by Kevin Ratterman at La La Land in Louisville) will be released August 26, but you can check out their latest single “All Day All Night” right now.
It was a chance trip to K-Mart that gave Kyle Craft his first album, a David Bowie hits compilation that helped inspire him eventually to channel his innate feral energy into songwriting and rock and roll. Kyle Craft is a 27-year-old singer/songwriter from Louisiana, who in his past life was either a glam-rock idol or frontman for a power-metal band. His sound is a swampy ’70s boogie that splits the difference between Dr. John and David Bowie…but his voice is a captivating, armor-piercing howl that gives his first album ‘Dolls of Highland’ its own character, and keeps it from ever feeling explicitly retro. Check out Kyle’s latest single “Eye Of A Hurricane”.
