Truly an international group, the Dark Lights feature two Australians -- Rachel Ho (bass, synth) and Matt Ho (guitar, vocals) -- alongside English singer Tristan Roe and Portuguese drummer Francisco Sousa. Now based in London, the quartet is preparing to release their sophomore EP, ‘Stop Existing, Start Living,’ and as the title indicates, the band is not resting on its laurels following the success of their debut EP, ‘The Boy Who Saw Through Walls.’
Faris McReynolds is, for all intents and purposes, a successful L.A.-based visual artist. Despite consistently showing in galleries and selling his paintings, he felt his creativity was stifled. He found himself spending his hard-earned dollars on music equipment, and soon enough, he put two and two together. McReynolds quickly changed gears and started making music as One Finger Riot — a lot of music.
Michigan-based Lawnmower started as singer-songwriter and guitarist Travis Bravender’s solo project back in 2010, when he released ‘Franchise Wings,’ his first LP under the alias. The project has since expanded into a trio, and this past April saw the release of the EP 'Whack Yer Brain,’ which the band is calling its proper debut. No matter where you land on the group’s timeline, however, their sound consistently reflects a great admiration of ‘90s lo-fi indie and pop-punk.
Noah Lebenzon and Thomas Froggatt, the brains behind Asian She, met back in 1998, but it wasn’t until 2012 that the alt-rock duo sat down to record some music together. The resulting five tracks complete their self-titled debut EP, all of which offer dark, gloomy goodness and make the 14 years well worth the wait.
Nick Scalise and Gregory Shanahan of Bestfriends have taken a hands-on approach to creating their breed of indie-pop-electronica, and they’ve carved out a niche in the genre. The Chicago-based pair have a vision, and they ensured its realization by taking complete control over their 2012 self-titled EP. Not only did they write and perform the six-track EP, but they also produced, mixed and mastered it. They even directed a couple of accompanying music videos.
Fat History Month’s sophomore LP, ‘Bad History Month,’ arrived on the heels of much praise for their debut album, ‘F---ing Despair.' As the album titles might indicate, this Boston indie-rock duo doesn’t take itself too seriously, or maybe it takes itself entirely too seriously — it’s hard to tell.
The Shakers have taken L.A. by storm, playing sold-out shows at venues like the Viper Room and Roxy Theatre, and with the help of their fans, they intend to keep on that trajectory with the summer 2013 release of ‘Rescue Team.’ For this foursome, it’s all about the pursuit of rock ‘n’ roll aspirations, and singer Jodie Schell bets that her “heart might just explode” the day they can pursue them full-time.
From their home recordings right down to their live performances, Mary Goes Wild strive for simplicity in their music. That's also true in terms of instrumentation, as Danny and Freddy Wild bash away with just guitar, drums and vocals.
Mission South have been on the rise since the release of ‘Migration Vol. 2' -- the second installment in a trilogy of EPs -- earlier this year. The roots-rock trio from Washington, D.C., features Dan Miller (vocals, guitar), John Beck (bass) and Max Harwood (drums) -- childhood friends who have been on the road or in the studio since graduating from college in 2012.
The EndAnd story is a family affair of sorts. The band’s history is one of collaboration by members of King Killer Studios in Brooklyn. What began as a duo featuring singer-guitarist Daniel Fern and drummer Mike Morales expanded to a trio when they asked bassist Bill Fitzgerald -- he of fellow King Killer band Capita Clip -- to join the effort. A week later, Fitzgerald was onstage performing EndAnd’s 2012 debut, ‘Adventures of Fi in Space,’ at its record-release show.
