  • Olin & The Moon

    Olin & The Moon

    Olin and The Moon has accomplished a difficult task in the music realm, straddling two worlds successfully. The world of the indie scene and the alt-country scene, a combination that can be seen in the varying faces of their audience. The roots of this five-piece outfit started in Sun Valley, Idaho. The town possesses a thick history of being the go-to place for artists since the 1930s. It is in this art-rich country haven backdrop, that brothers David (lead vocals, guitar) and (guitarist) Travis LaBrel met (drummer) Marshall Vore and began their own creative journey down the road of sound. In 2005, feeling the limitations and entrapments of small town life, the road led them to Los Angeles and the meeting of members Brian McGinnis (Banjo/Pedal Steel) and (Bass) Kyle Vicioso. Together, Olin and The Moon have created a unique sound that mixes alt-country with roots rock and youthful folky lyrics.

    Patrolled By Radar

    You can trace an almost linear route from the unfiltered moments of Dylan and The Hawks through Gram Parsons, to Tom Petty (with a slight detour along the way for chunks of the Rolling Stones circa 1969-72 and a speedbump called 'Tom Waits in the '90s'). The latest extension of this musical highway is paved by Patrolled By Radar. 
     
    On their new album, Cool Your Jets, which will be released July 29th, the Los Angeles based band fuses the finer elements of the past four decades to craft rock songs whose appeal defies genre or classification. "At the core, our songs are rock and roll," says guitarist / vocalist Jay Souza. "You can't help where you come from. Growing up in Boston I loved all the blues-derived stuff like J. Geils and Aerosmith, the things close to the rock that was coming out of England; I always thought the Brit stuff was really clever. Now I want to write stuff that's cool and clever. I want it to groove, and also be satisfying melodically and lyrically. That's really where it all comes from. I think that what we're doing is rock and roll in the sense that its fun to listen to, and the way the record's made it had a sense of urgency, but it's also very precise and sonically pleasing."
     
    Once again the band tapped Grammy nominated producer Peter Curry (Los Straitjackets) to record, mix & produce the album, as he's done with their first two releases, and the strength of that relationship translates to the confidence PBR displays in their songwriting and performance. Curry, who also plays bass (and sometimes drums) on the new release refers to Souza's songwriting as "flash fiction with music." Adding further praise, he says "Jay has more in common with The Kinks than any of the current crop of 'Americana.' His songs tell stories that are simultaneously funny, sad and ironic, and the music rocks. He’s one of those rare songwriters who crafts melodies as strong as his lyrics."
     
    Self-described as a "consummate bar band in the '70s Pub Rock tradition," Patrolled By Radar has shared the stage with an eclectic array of artists such as Los Lonely Boys, Taj Mahal, The Jayhawks, Tim Finn w/Richard Thompson, Holly Golightly & The Brokeoffs, and the Gourds. The band just finished a run of shows opening for the legendary Dave & Phil Alvin and will be playing with 2014 Bluegrass Grammy nominees Della Mae Thursday, August 14th at The Mint.

  • The Southern Tier

    The Southern Tier

    The SouthernTier are a Los Angeles based Americana band playing a mixture of Country, Bluegrass and Roots Rock. The SouthernTier is fronted by North Carolina native Mark W. Lennon who released his full length debut album, Home of the Wheel in 2011. Compared to 2009’s much talked about EP, Down the Mountain, Home of the Wheel has a raw - stripped down sound, due in part to producer Marvin Etzioni (Lone Justice). The SouthernTier are currently working on new material for an upcoming release.

  • The Get Down Boys

    The Get Down Boys

    "The Get Down Boys formed in West Los Angeles in the Spring of 2010. The founding members had much in common but mostly two things: their love of bluegrass music and common alma mater, Berklee College of Music in Boston. The Boys hail from all over the US (Virginia, Missouri, Connecticut, Ohio).

    Since then they've toured over thirty US cities, released an album of original material, and performed alongside some of the industry's leading icons."
