In Greek mythology, the Titans were the earliest gods, descendants of Gaia, the earth, and Uranus, the sky. The Titans ruled during the Golden Age of humanity, which was not named for its riches but for its people, who were good and noble.

Golden, as it were. Read more

Tele Novella is sugar-crash dream-psych popsicle punch out of Austin, TX with members of Agent Ribbons and Voxtrot. Influenced by the nocturnal jungles of Os Mutantes and the lapeled, knee-socked smarts of Belle and Sebastian, the songwriting is sincere and evocative. In early 2014 they released the single version of ‘Trouble in Paradise’ on vinyl with American Laundromat Records right on the tail of the Wes Anderson tribute compilation, to which they contributed a contagious version of ‘Stephanie Says’ by the Velvet Underground. Now they’re releasing their first EP ‘Cosmic Dial Tone’ on Los Angeles Psych-Pop label Lolipop Records and will be logging a whole lot of tour dates this fall! Read more

Lonesome Shack began in the isolation of southwestern New Mexico’s Gila Wilderness, where songwiter Ben Todd hunkered down in the shack he built and studied the music of the American folk and blues lineage. Today Lonesome Shack’s songs continue to be informed by these early explorations as they combine the sounds of post-WWII electric country blues with a new approach to boogie.

In 2007 Todd moved to Seattle and within a year joined up with drummer Kristian Garrard (Thousands). Together they recorded and released the “Bound to Die” LP in 2009, “Falling Down on Your Floor” EP in 2009, “Slidin Boa” LP in 2010, and completed two west coast tours and two national tours. With the recent addition of bassist Luke Bergman (Also a member of Thousands) the band has become heavier and more rhythm-focused. As a three piece the recorded their last two albums,”City Man” and “More Primitive”. The band finds influence in the Georgia drumbeat styles of James Davis, the one chord drone blues of Junior Kimbrough, and the high energy boogie of John Lee Hooker. When performing live, they are known to stir a subdued crowd into a fevered dance party. Read more

The Toasters, are “Ska Pioneers” (Billboard magazine) and boldly go where no ska band has gone before. Having been compared to the Ramones, due to their longevity and adherence to core principles, the Toasters are held to be one of most influential ska bands out there. Their lean, mean ska machine has galvanized audiences and musicians alike with their embrace of the Jamaica-born pop music style that overwhelmed England in the 1960′s, migrated to America in the early 1980s, and went global in the 1990s. The hallmark Toasters sound sits at the nexus of Reggae, Jazz, Punk and Soul and is the musical equivalent of a brass knuckle-duster. Read more
