  • Skerik's Bandalabra

    Skerik's Bandalabra

    Skerik, the enduringly saxophonic, punk jazz iconoclast is joined by three of his fellow Seattle hometown's most revered players: Andy Coe on electric guitar, Evan Flory Barnes on upright bass and Dvonne Lewis on drums.

    Together, the quartet syncopates and snakes, floats free and snaps tight with hypnotic afrobeat rhythms, minimalist canons and improvised harmonics. There's a duality that demands listeners both dance and get lost in the sound.

    On Bandalabra’s debut album, "Live At The Royal Room," captured at the band's first public performance, the foursome head into the deep unknown. Halfway through the evening, they hit upon the illest of psych grooves, appropriately dubbed "Beast Crusher." Here the visceral and cerebral become one, and Skerik's Bandalabra is born a fully realized vision.

  • Shovelman

    Shovelman

         Shovelman is a junkyard beatnik, a shovel guitar wielding surrealist folk superhero. Armed with a collection of pawnshop effects pedals and an old barn-shovel turned slide-guitar, Shovelman plays ol’ fashioned folktronica-grooves looped straight out of the ground. The sounds of Mississippi delta blues from the electro-psychedelic future, collide with the antiquated rubble of lyrical one-man-band hoboetry. Shovelman has become infamous on the west coast festival circuit (Lightning in a Bottle, Health and Harmony, Earthdance and The Oregon Country Fair) opening for bands that include Primus, Beats Antique, Sean Hayes and The Yard Dogs Road Show.

    “Shovelman has forged a perfect merger of the past and the present with his bluesy ‘folktronic’ sound.” - LA Weekly

    "Shovelman's music would be playing on the radio if Tom Waits and Les Claypool ever went on a road trip together ......and were lost." - Chip, 'So Wat TV
