Jay Electronica with Bru Lei, C-Plus & Deviouz
Jay Electronica

Jay Electronica is an American rapper and producer. He produced the first track, "Queens Get the Money", on the 2008 Nas album Untitled. The unconventional nature of much of his music, and the lack of conventional release methods for that music, have since 2007 made him the object of much attention. He was perhaps best known for the piece of music Act 1: Eternal Sunshine (The Pledge), until the release of the Just Blaze-produced track "Exhibit C" in late 2009 .

The Aristocrats with The Travis Larson Band
The Aristocrats

The Aristocrats (Guthrie Govan, Bryan Beller and Marco Minnemann) have released critically acclaimed albums, toured the world, and established themselves as one of the most musically original, refreshingly irreverent, and astoundingly entertaining instrumental rock-fusion acts on the planet. Call them a virtuoso supergroup if you must, but their musical high-wire act - employing random amounts of rock, jazz, pop, metal, and even traditional country - is informed by the spirit of a true band, one whose improvisational soul allows for anything to happen onstage at any moment…including the occasional wink and nod at the audience. The Aristocrats are touring to promote their most ambitious and exploratory studio album yet, entitled You Know What…?, and will be supported by fellow rock-fusioners, Travis Larson Band.

Electric Six with Kyle Shutt (of The Sword)
Electric Six

The concept of the “human zoo” has existed in art and literature for centuries, thus Electric Six recognizes and accepts it is not breaking new conceptual ground by naming its tenth studio album Human Zoo. It recognizes and accepts that old ground is being broken. Like teeth. The first known reference to a human zoo is believed to be from the mid-to-middle 12th century, when the famous Flemish monk Wenslaus De Trappe wrote of his base desires to cage human beings and charge money to display them in humiliating fashion in his classic 14 Trappist Monk Tales. From there, the human zoo concept snowballed and could be found everywhere from Restoration literature (Lord Percy Nutton’s Northumberland Abbey), to Nazi propaganda (Die Mensch Zooiedieschennel) to 20th Century American counterculture (Tal Rosenberg’s 20 Days on Acid – I Am a Pinhole Camera), the last of which where the author famously imprisons his lawyer/traveling companion in a cage and places him at the corner of Haight and Ashbury to stand trial for helping contribute to a bad trip. Electric Six recognizes the legacy of the human zoo concept and throws its hat into the conceptual milieu with a great deal of respect and humility. We do not seek to define the human zoo, nor do we seek to deconstruct it. We seek to explore it. We seek to expand it. And most of all, we seek to sell it to you. Electric Six recognizes that when men and women are placed in cages and displayed like animals, a power dynamic is being constructed. The human in the cage has his basic rights discarded, his dignity stripped from him, whereas the human who pays to observe other humans establishes his superiority just by casually standing and watching, choosing to leave whenever he likes. In this same way, Electric Six seeks to put itself on display in such a manner that empowers the listener and debases the band all while making everyone feel like partying. From the opening track “Karate Lips”, Human Zoo takes the listener immediately into a teenage karate tournament for girls as refereed by Def Leppard. The crunchy guitars hit you in the face like a teenage foot and you immediately remember why you purchased or illegally downloaded this latest Electric Six album. Like many E6 albums, Human Zoo does not have one defining sound, rather it is a sampler’s plate of the entire history of rock and roll music. Like Motown…now we are doing Motown. “Alone With Your Body” is the feel good necrophilia anthem of the summer and it sees the band embracing this oft overlooked section of our hometown’s musical history. From there we ramble into the spaghetti-western marching band good times of “Gun Rights”, the triumphant Disnification of “I’ve Seen Rio in Flames”, and into the absurd hip hop of “(Who The Hell Just) Call My Phone”. Thrown in a few classic rockers in “I Need A Restaurant” and “Worst Movie Ever” and you’ve got an E6 album, son! But it’s not an E6 album until the closer is better than the rest of the record combined. The gorgeous, haunting pop of “The Afterlife” might be the greatest thing the band has ever done. Ever. Okay we said some stuff, told you some song titles, and threw you a few bones. Come on now, buy the record! Who cares about all that other stuff? Have a go, see what happens! Give it a shot! Human Zoo is available on Oct. 14 on Metropolis Records. Come see Electric Six play in your town this fall on the Some Girls Do It for Love tour. Visit electricsix.com for tour dates.

The Joy Formidable with With Special Guests
The Joy Formidable

The Joy Formidable have never been one to shy away from a challenge. Proving that time and again by holding their own as support for legendary artists and acts from Sir Paul McCartney to The Foo Fighters and The Black Keys. Once described by Rolling Stone as “wickedly bracing and Himalaya-huge;” the fantastic live band would now face the self-appointed challenge of ensuring their onstage energy and ability to connect with audiences translated via recording. That is the challenge that TJF took on for their upcoming third release. “We realized we needed to build a space and do it ourselves, go back to being three people in a room again” said Ritzy (Rhiannon) Bryan regarding the band’s decision to self-produce the new record. Twelve months later, the band have made an album that has “musically and emotionally put them through the wringer” but as the band explains, “it’s fine for it to hurt, to finish a record feeling exhausted, we needed a good purge” Continuing on the path of taking matters into their own hands, the group set out to build the right team around the new music by getting the legendary Alan Moulder to mix the album (The Killers, Nine Inch Nails, The Smashing Pumpkins, etc) and by starting their own label and teaming up with Caroline Records as new partners for the release. ” We wanted to work with people who feel as strong as we do about music, who listen to albums, love the art and let that take control.” “On this album, we’ve been lucky enough to feel that same enthusiasm from everyone involved.” This self-starter approach has been a staple of TJF for quite some time, building consistently since the band moved back to North Wales. The Joy Formidable started right away by launching Aruthrol – a unique 7” vinyl singles club, showcasing a series of new songs sung in Welsh; built a studio – The Red Brick – in the hills they roamed when they were growing up. They have since used that studio to write and record an astonishing new album, an evolutionary step forward from its predecessors The Big Roar (2011) & Wolf’s Law (2013). They also completed their first short film score for Greg Jardin’s ‘Floating’, an urban love story about a character made entirely of balloons. It’s an emotionally resonant score, with all the underpinnings of The Joy Formidable, Ritzy’s atmospheric guitar work, and Rhydian’s piano-led melodies, interlaced together to compliment the themes of loneliness, vulnerability, persistence and humanity at the film’s core. The band’s love for soundtracks is highlighted by their recently recorded and released interpretation of Angelo Badalamenti and Julee Cruise’s iconic theme for Twin Peaks. “It started off as a distraction in the studio that gathered momentum,” says Ritzy. “It’s a great and unusual piece of music and a great and unusual piece of television; we’re excited about the new episodes.” Audiences will be treated to a preview of some new material during the band’s later summer / early fall festival appearances. A full worldwide tour will follow and the album itself will be here for us all to enjoy in early 2016.

Hot Flash Heat Wave with Tino Drima, Mediocre Cafe
Hot Flash Heat Wave

San Francisco indie-rock quartet Hot Flash Heat Wave rose to prominence in the Bay Area music scene in 2015 with the release of their 'Gutter Girl' music video, from their debut album Neapolitan, which was uploaded to YouTube and eventually made its way to the front page of reddit. Their versatile sound, at times reminiscent of golden 60s, power pop, dream pop, post-punk and indie rock, demonstrates a dynamic range of songwriting prowess centered around consistently infectious, sun-soaked melodies and guitar hooks. HFHW formed in Davis, California as a noise collaboration between Adam Abildgaard and Nick Duffy in 2010, expanding to a full band when bassist Ted Davis and guitarist Nathaniel Blum joined the group in the following years. Renouncing the traditional front-manned format of most contemporary bands, the four instead each contribute songs and share the lead. With the release of their sophomore album, Soaked, accompanied by a string of creative self-produced music videos in 2017, the group embarked on its first nationwide tour. Their first single, 'Bye Bye Baby', appeared on Canada's Viral 50 Spotify playlist. In 2017, HFHW released their sophomore album Soaked with OIM Records, which charted on college radio in the U.S. The band just finished up a national tour and SXSW visit with No Vacation to promote their new single 'Glo Ride' - a song released in collaboration with Broken Ent. Hot Flash Heat Wave will continue to release music and new videos throughout 2018.
