Otis Heat, a bluesy three-piece from Portland, has one of the more wild origin stories we've heard in a minute. While traveling in separate cars, two of the three (soon-to-be) bandmates suffered a near-fatal crash with one another and were helped out by a mysterious drifter that they think was named, yes, Otis Heat. Basically, we have a band as dedication to a mysterious Pacific Northwest character that no one is sure exists in the first place....Part Black Keys and part woozy funk that could care less about scoring underground points.
Jamestown Revival is an idea formed by Jonathan Clay & Zach Chance. For lack of a better word, it could be called a "duo", but that just doesn't quite capture the essence of their delivery. This band is two-man rock & roll, and the closest possible categorization one could label it with would sound something like "indie-rock with a southern slant". Drawing on influences ranging from The Band, to Simon and Garfunkle, Jamestown Revival's sound is harmony driven and rooted in southern soul. The two are childhood friends, and the chemistry is evident when seeing them perform. Formed in 2011, the band has already been featured on the Carson Daly Show, as well as Rolling Stone Magazine. With a self-produced EP that reached #12 on the iTunes charts, the duo has criss-crossed the country, playing everywhere from dive bars to amphitheaters. Expect a follow up full-length album this year (2012).
