ARTISTS & MUSIC
When Jaffe started playing guitar in high school, everything was a discovery. Every chord she played, she thought she had made it up. Not knowing how to play bass or drums, but forcing herself to try, brought that back to her. Jaffe entered the studio with producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, The Walkmen), who had worked with her on Suburban Nature. The result was The Body Wins. A record not created by any grand design to change her sound. It’s where she’s at now, a product of everywhere she’s been. Her latest effort, 2014's Don't Disconnect, is a beautiful record that continues her musical evolution.
Austin’s Bee Caves exists in between the layers of American music, showing a range as impressive and diverse as to blur the lines that divide rock, electronica, psychedelic noise and timeless Americana. The manic, honest urgency in Reed Calhoun’s lyrics is a central force guiding the music, which is expansive yet grounded in a disciplined use of mixed genres, textures, and sounds.
Portland-based Battleme is the stage name of Matt Drenik. Battleme first appeared in the season 2 finale of FX Network's Sons Of Anarchy with the song, "Burn This Town." It was a departure from the guitar heavy band Lions that Drenik previously fronted. These spurts of lo-fi acoustic folk produced numerous songs that began to see Drenik breaking away from the heavy psychedelic outfits he'd previously played in. Battleme released it's first self-titled record (produced by Ghostland Observatory's Thomas Turner) in 2012, Future Runs Magnetic in 2014, and the latest effort Habitual Love Songs will be released January 15, 2016.
After releasing his first solo album, The Orientalist, Daniel Hart formed a backing band and channeled all his new energy into Dark Rooms. Releasing one song at a time, the self-titled album trades Hart’s violin gymnastics for slow-burning beats and a fitful sprawl.
Born and raised in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, Nic Armstrong has been based in Austin, TX, for the past five years. Utilising and drawing from a wide field of current and off-kilter resources and influences, he composes scratchy, hook-laden, left field, rock and roll music with a dip of tobacco psychology. In his workshop, Armstrong has been forging onwards: consistently writing, composing, arranging and documenting all parts to a very diverse and exciting body of work. Nic's latest effort, The Negative Slant, will be released in late 2015.
A prolific, eclectic, alt-country band based in Denton, Texas, Centro-Matic began in 1995 as a side project for singer/songwriter and guitarist Will Johnson. Though Centro-Matic released a few singles that year, it wasn't until 1997 that the project began to resemble a full-fledged group. Fifteen years and 25 records later, the latest piece of work Take Pride In Your Long Odds manages to sound like some young band’s debut—its exuberance is infectious; its vigor, visceral.
Austin-based band Monahans, named for the desolate West Texas sand hills, balances thundering rhythms and atmospheric “landscape rock” with urgent pop anthems and spiritual campfire balladry. Since their 2006 inception, Monahans have toured in support of Cowboy Junkies, Centro-matic, J. Tillman & Magnolia Electric Co. Their records have featured guest vocal performances by Sinead O’Connor, Will Johnson of Centro-matic and Margo Timmons of Cowboy Junkies.
