The Immaculates
A soul band from New York, NY
El Sportivo
When you’re seeking out powerful rock n’ roll, you search below the surface. There is the shiny and pristine and then there is the subterranean and the primitive. The latter journey will take you across tequila-tangled guitar lines bashed out in basements all across America. This is where you’ll find El Sportivo & The Blooz, a crew who understand the necessity of rawness, urgency, and the sacral strength of working under dim light.
Father Figures
Father Figures
Father Figures is a band of five friends from Brooklyn, making music that blends the composed and improvised into something that is wild, yet accessible. It is Zombie Jazz, and it is not your grandfather's music… unless your grandfather juggled knives. Always melodic and strong willed, Father Figures manages sounds into sculptures to make you move your feet, then break a vase, and can neatly package these sounds into a 30 minute set ideal for a dirty basement, or an hour long set ideal for a slightly cleaner warehouse. But they'll actually play anywhere, and preferably with bands that play rock and roll. Father Figures has a new record out on vinyl and digital files on Museum People Records: Over the course of four months, they recorded 5 hours worth of improvisations to 4-track cassette and a breaking Navy reel-to-reel 1/4" tape recorder. Dumped into digital, sorted through everything and picked only what we loved, then chopped, mixed, produced, tweaked and arranged, the resulting debut album consists of 18 pieces, a supreme example of using improvised music compositionally.
