EL VY is a collaborative project between indie rock musicians Matt Berninger and Brent Knopf, formed in 2014. Their first album is set to be released on 30 October 2015 and includes the title track Return To The Moon.
Blitzen Trapper's music went through various genres with each record, bouncing from indie folk to art rock to experimental folk before settling into a rich, dusty brand of Neil Young-inspired alt-country. The band formed in 2000 in Portland, Oregon, with songwriter Eric Earley leading a lineup that also included Erik Menteer (guitar, keyboard), Brian Adrian Koch (drums, vocals), Michael Van Pelt (bass), Drew Laughery (keyboard), and Marty Marquis (keyboard, vocals). Their new album All Across The Land drops on October 2nd. Check out the title track.
Named after the Bob Dylan song "The Ballad of Hollis Brown," New York City-based Hollis Brown (a band, not a person) play a tight, sparse, rocking version of classic rock, with songs full of melody, pop, country tinges, and an ever-present and slight feel of the blues, all of which gives the best of their songs a timeless feel. Led by the songwriting of Mike Montali (vocals and guitar) and Jon Bonilla (guitar), and with a taut rhythm section of Mike Wosczyk (bass) and Mike Graves (drums and percussion), the band released a debut EP, Nothing & the Famous No One, in 2012, and followed it with a full-length album, Ride on the Train, early in 2013. By the following year, Hollis Brown had settled into a lineup of Montali, Bonilla, Adam Bock (keys), Dillon DeVito (bass), and Andrew Zahnal (drums), and they released Gets Loaded, a rootsy, track-for-track re-imagining of the Velvet Underground's classic 1970 album Loaded. That same year, their song "When the Weather's Warm" was featured in the Matt Dillon-Willem Dafoe crime drama Bad Country. Chasing a bigger sound, they brought in John Agnello to mix their next studio LP, the passionately organic 3 Shots, which arrived on Jullian Records in the spring of 2015. They open for The Counting Crows at Red Rocks on September 16th. We feature the track "Sandy".
