Hidden Cities – Face In The Crowd

hiddencitiesHidden Cities is a NYC-based band of late night dreamers with a shared love for the sounds of the streets and a sweaty dance floor. Harnessing the frenzied energy of a city in transit, their songs recall urban life through stories of adventure and true love.
Their collective songwriting effort yields haunting, catchy melodies over dueling guitars and bouncing rhythm & bass, occasionally punctuated by Stax style horns. The percussive, energetic Hidden Cities sound is perfect for pre-party rituals before heading out into the night.
Their second record The Strange features their unique blend of boozy bluesy rock songs that evoke nostalgia for a city life that once was and for love once lost, while keeping listeners too busy dancing to dwell.

Thorcraft Cobra – Killing Time

ThorcraftCobra_300x300First off, despite their righteously badass nom de artiste Thorcraft Cobra are not purveyors of weed-hazed, beer-soaked SoCal Throttle Rock. Together, Billy Zimmer (Brown Eyed Susans) and Tammy Glover (Sparks) combine a knack for concise pop songwriting, a gift for crafting immediately engaging melody, and impeccable taste in rock and roll sonics into something that is both fresh and undeniable.
Zimmer and Glover first crossed paths when their respective acts were signed to the same label. “I started as a fan of his guitar tone” relates Glover, “but quickly fell for his wit and songwriting skills.” Their partnership coalesced when Zimmer decided to play a few demos he was working on for his labelmate. “I wasn’t super confident in it at all, to be perfectly honest. Then I played the songs for Tammy, and she was like, “whhhaaatttt”. And told me that it was good, and that she should play drums on it and we should put it out” explains Zimmer. “She also pointed at one of my vintage amps and asked, “What’s that?” “That’s my Thorcraft Cobra,” I told her. “That’s what we should call the band,” she said. I did not argue!”

Ha Ha Tonka – Everything

HaHaTonkaOver their history, Ha Ha Tonka has recorded four critically acclaimed albums, toured the world, played Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits, and appeared on Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations. Through it all, these Ozarks natives have made friends, found love, started familes, and grown and matured together. Heart-Shaped Mountain is a reflection of that development and maturity. Once aptly summed as “Indie-Americana, where Alabama meets Arcade Fire, ” Ha Ha Tonka has expanded their sonic palette, unveiling balanced, sublime, pop radio accessible heights and an emotionally broader, post-punk songwriting range, a la Apache Relay or a less enigmatic Jonsi, while keeping their trademark harmonizing vocals, jangly Southern revelry and crunchy hooks fully in tact. At it’s core, Heart-Shaped Mountain is an album about love and growth. At a time when divisiveness fills the headlines, Ha Ha Tonka is fighting the good fight, building narrative-tributes to friends and loved ones, memories past and prospects of the future.

BNQT – Restart

bnqt editBNQT, a new indie super group conceived and led by Eric Pulido of Midlake, have announced the release of their debut album ‘Volume 1’ on April 28 via Dualtone, and Entertainment One company. The introductory set includes ten new, original songs and features five vocalists – Ben Bridwell of Band of Horses, Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand, Fran Healy of Travis, Jason Lytle of Granddaddy, and Pulido – who wrote and sing two tracks each, with backing from other Midlake members McKenzie Smith (drums), Joey McClellan (guitar) and Jesse Chandler (keys). ‘Volume 1’ was recorded and produced mostly at their studio in Denton, TX. The concept of BNQT (pronounced “Banquet”) came to Pulido while touring for Midlake’s 2013 release, ‘Antiphon.’ Gathering a number of contrasting yet complementary artists he’d befriended or shared the stage with, Pulido set out to establish a new creative environment untethered from other work – “Like a poor man’s version of the Traveling Wilburys!” he says.
