JP CORWYN - Alternative / Blind Indie Rock / Acoustic Rock

How could you be so blind? You haven’t heard of JP Corwyn? You haven’t seen him live? You haven’t heard his music? How embarrassing for you. Really, though. It’s ok. You’re in the right place. For JP, the rationale for the blind jokes is, well, reasonable. He is legally blind. Born with a degenerative condition, he has been legally blind since birth, with the shades pulling ever tighter throughout his as-yet-brief-but-potent life. This makes his genre tag of Blind Indie Rock make more sense. Otherwise, he’d just be sort of pretentious and snarky, but not in the fun depraved sit-com way.

Corwyn’s vocal-driven indie rock style is infectious, reminiscent of Toad the Wet Sprocket’s Glen Phillips co-writing songs with Angie Aparo that get snatched by Adam Levine of Maroon 5, with occasional stomps into Creed and Pearl Jam-esque electric anthem territory.

Once and always a New Yorker, Corwyn was born on Long Island, and now makes his home and home base in Seminole, Florida after spending several post-high school years in Washington, D.C. He sang before he spoke and declared his musical vocation when he was 5 years old. His family was thrilled. Sarcasm. Their reticence would have been justified, if JP’s musical talent and gift for genuine emotional connection had not been so pronounced. His desire to draw a crowd and love of the electricity found in the performance experience is a through-line in his success, as is his love of story. Story is king in Corwyn’s music. Story telling is more important than a clever lyric, and true listening is more important than feet tapping. Most often, the story is of triumph, survival, some form of powering through, and, during conversation, the inevitable: blind jokes. The really offensive, really funny ones.  (as compiled on the bands website)

GRANT MOFF TARKIN - Alternative / Americana / Folk

Grant Moff Tarkin got off around the turn of the century, when singer Julax and guitarist Huddie started writing songs together. In the spring of 2006 the band was joined by drummer Damien (also a member of Tagueule). Bass player Etherik (a.o. Rivercrest) completed the quartet in 2008. Both musician's talents proved a perfect complement to the eclectic style Huddie and Julax had been working on. Grant Moff Tarkin has elaborated a live set that offers both variety and energy, which has brought them to stages such as Muziekodroom (Hasselt), Hof Ter Lo (Antwerpen), Bilborock (Bilbao, Sp.), Platformtheater (Groningen, Nl.) or the Northern Sounds Festival (Lens, Fr). In 2006-2007 they were selected to be part of AB Cocoon. In collaboration with the Ancienne Belgique Grant Moff Tarkin did a variety of promo and recording sessions, and were programmed as the support to international acts such as The Lemonheads (US) and The Fiery.  (as compiled on the bands website)

ABSENT ME - Alternative / Progressive / Rock

Formed in 2000 by Brian Rogers(singer), and Curtis Harvey(guitar), Absent Me is a 4 man Progressive rock band from Sacramento Ca. In 2002, the jazz sound was injected with the addition of Job(bass), only to complete the ultimate capabilities in 2004 when Don(drums) joined to write and record all new music for a full length L.P., entitled "Hate To Wake You" , released September 2006.

Brian developed his haunting mix of melody and primal scream after 8 years of vocal training, 13 years of composing, and co-founding the 90's alt rock band Above. (as compiled on the bands website)

Black Angel ..

​ Black Angel will be releasing the O' Los Angeles album, the 4th and last in the O' series of albums (O' California and O' Santa Barbara 2007; and  O' San Francisco 2010).  We also released "Pleasuredome" last year; Real Music For Real People in 2003; and 13 Stories in 2003.

I am attaching the first and third songs from the new CD for free downloads.

The Urge was a song written for Audrey (Mrs. Ike) Turner when she was in Black Angel.  We never recorded it with Audrey but did with the Black Angel Girls on the album 13 Stories.  This is the first time that I sang on the song that I wrote.

The song, Go For It was recorded from midnight to 8:00 a.m. at a cheap recording studio in Hollywood.  It featured a duet with the fabulous former back-up singers for Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder, Mickey Morris and Denise Patterson.  New York video producer, Michael Merola, played a great lead on this song.

If you are a radio station and you would like a free copy of the new "O' Los Angeles" album shipped to you, email us your mailing address and we will send one.

Drop Electric on the commercial free Pluto Radio stream ..

Based in a city known for stagnation and business as usual, Washington DC's Drop Electric exists to tell a different story about the nation's capital. Drop Electric’s music is a manic barrage of soaring vocals, heavy guitars, atmospheric textures, and tribal percussion, controlled by structured, dynamic songwriting. Their live show has been described as "epic" by NPR's Bob Boilen and most aptly "...as if the listener has started to sleepwalk through a dark art house film" by the DCist's Valerie Paschall.

The band released its label debut on Lefse Records in October 2013 to critical praise. Gaining acclaim from NPR, MTVU, and The Washington Post, the band has had its music placed in the trailer for "300: Rise of an Empire" and has had its song "Empire Trashed" played as part of a movie premiere on the International Space Station.

Over the last 6 months, Drop Electric has headlined the Fillmore and sold out their first headlining show at 930 Club.

“Beautiful video, very beautiful timelapse stuff and so I stayed… and they knocked me out. I’d seen Sigur Ros earlier in the week, we’d webcast that show, Sigur Ros is on my mind. Epic sounding instrumental band, with beautiful, beautiful vocals and here was Drop Electric, doing something sorta similar.“

"Many of the songs included on this collection continue down the path of introspection, with rhythmically hard-hitting approaches and galactic vocal harmony arrangements very reminiscent of supergroup “YES”. In fact it is Klimecky’s elaborate musical arrangements which ultimately makes this album stand out amongst the competition."

release date: March 19, 2013
“While driving though Chicago, on tour, we stopped finally to visit Wilco at their studio, The Loft. They had invited us to come check it out several times over the years, but this would finally be the day.  It’s a great place—a sea of instruments in a relaxed, open working environment. It’s cool, but what really converted us was hearing the new Mavis Staples tracks they were working on: big, simple, raw, and intimate.  Plans were made then and there.
‘Don’t break my Grammy streak.’
We have worked with many of the great engineer/producers. Jeff Tweedy has been on our side of the microphone for over 25 years, however with engineer (and fellow Grammy winner) Tom Schick, he has of late become a formidable and eclectic producer. He spoke a language we understood, but then took us effortlessly into the mystery.
We’ve made many records, and you know our M.O.: slow, quiet, sometimes melancholy, and, we hope, sometimes pretty…  (continued @ http://chairkickers.com/info/)

The Daylights ..


The Daylights are an alternative rock band from Los Angeles. The trio is fronted by brothers Ran Jackson and Ricky Jackson, with Svend Lerche on Drums. Best known for their song, "I Hope This Gets To You" that was released in December 2010 as a virtual “love letter” on YouTube, it was based on a concept they conceived with their roommate for his long distance girlfriend. Within the first 72 hours, the video was viewed over 1.5 million times & every major press outlet had something to say about the phenomenon. Their self titled album "The Daylights" was released September 14, 2010 on the band's own label, 87th Floor Records. The album spent 5 weeks on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart. "Rogue Machine" and "I Hope This Gets To You" both reached Top 50 at Hot AC radio, and The Daylights were the only unsigned band in the Top 100. "I Hope This Gets To You" went to #4 on Sirius XM. The Daylights had three headlining tours in support of their self-titled album, including the No Reverse Tour

Heavy Water Experiments ..

NBT pic
Germany album review (July 2010)
Next Big Thing (www.nbtmusic.wordpress.com)
"Never clumsy enough to be mistaken for simple hard rock, never bland enough to please those that seek the new age as a refuge from the difficult, it is an invitation to let go, to ride the hallucination bare back, to get fierce, to go crazy...a LOT to discover here."

Folk World pic
Germany album review (July 2010)
Folk World (www.folkworld.eu)
"At the first hearing, it is clear why the duo experiments with heavy water (D2O). Their pictorial band name describes the unusual sound perfectly. The music is thick yet light, with brutal guitar riffs, bass lines--and heavy rock rhythms are associated with hypnotic vocals and psychedelic guitars and keyboard sounds. The songs are reminiscent of Pink Floyd, Alan Parsons, The Beatles, but also the heavier rock of Black Sabbath. Melbye has a beautiful voice, screaming or crying, but never compromising the rough edges of the musical accompaniment, which makes for a fascinating sound...the idea of Syd and Iommi in perfect cosmic union is a nice one...drums, vocals and 8-string-bass/electric guitar divided up in unexpected and possibly physically improbable ways."

great band per Wikipidia .. DEAR WOLF

Dear Wolf

Dear Wolf ist eine Rockband aus Krefeld, die 1988 gegründet wurde. Zuvor war die Band regional unter dem Namen No Sports aufgetreten.
Die Band spielt Rockmusik mit englischen Texten und Elementen aus Alternative Pop und Rock. Dear Wolf feierte Anfang der 1990er Jahre Erfolge mit ihren Alben und durch Videoausstrahlungen der Songs Lost und Summertrain über MTV und VIVA.
Aufgrund musikalischer Differenzen war im Jahre 1997 das vorläufige Ende der Band unausweichlich. Anfang 2005 initiierten die beiden Köpfe und Gründungsmitglieder von Dear Wolf, Alexander Classen und Martin Smeets, die Band neu. Mit dem Drummer Oliver Griethe und dem etwas später dazu gestoßenen Bassisten Guido Geerlings komplettierte sich die Band. Nach einer kreativen Pause und einen weiteren Personalwechsel an der Bassgitarre mit Tobias Kirsten, wurde im Jahr 2012 das aktuelle Album "Hello Stars" veröffentlicht. Die Band wurde für Livekonzerte durch Michael Hoefels am Keyboard zusätzlich verstärkt.

Just give his tunes a listen, and you might find you like him just fine, and "maybe" we'll all somehow realize we're not all that different from each other.  http://countrymusic.about.com/od/cdreviewsal/gr/mattangus.htm

Deadman and Digi Hartatak...

\\ https://archive.org/details/LetterB

Okay, the underground can be found on the Internet Archive...

Deadman & Digi Hartatak are back.... in the 1970's. With some help from Electric Stiletto on pyramid drums on Electric Entourage, the funk flows freely and the grooves get groovier. Influenced by the progression through the decade of disco and decadance, Welcome Back takes you roughly back to the beginning you should have never escaped Kotter. Different strokes lead to Trapper John, time and time again. The Entourage is funky and Electric as they glam up the Vegas Strip with fear and loathing. Facing dual personalities at every turn, the next track is Bipolar Too.

See the video for Electric Entourage here:

LAF on the Pluto Radio stream ..

LAF are hoping to visit a venue near you soon!

25 years in the making – LAF were originally formed in 1986 as a recording vehicle for the songs of Phil Matthews and Alastair Boden.

After a spell during which life got in the way the duo reunited at the start of 2009 on the back of renewed interest in the music from the Internet.

Initially writing and recording a four track EP titled “Sparkle” LAF was invited by jupitersmoon.co.uk to release
a full length compilation of highlights to date named “Random Play All.”

Phil and Al decided that now was the time to take the music out live and with the addition of Andy Dobson on bass and stompbox and Rachel McCullough on harmonies formed a stripped down version of the band.  (info via band's webpage)

The Rowdymen on the commercial Free Pluto radio stream..

On a whiskey fueled summers night in the heart of the Canadian Prairies, the worlds meanest Rockabilly band was born. For the past decade The Rowdymen have delivered their patented blend of High-Octane Edgy Rockabilly and Hard Drivin' Prairie Twang to audiences across the nation. This full throttle collective has shared bills with an eclectic mix of luminaries including Bill Haley's original Comets, Reverend Horton Heat, Hank III, Neko Case blues legend T-Model Ford, and Sleepy La Beef. Approaching show 1000, the band is back with a vengeance with the release of Gas, Liquor and Fireworks, the bands fourth full length release. With this record on Transistor 66, the Rowdymen show why they're one of the fiercest Rockabilly bands on the planet. From beer soaked rockers to murder death ballads, this record will kick your *** right on to the dance floor (as compiled from the band’s website).

We love ‘Johnny Rumble’…it’s all about the foot stompin’ here in the cave. The Rowdymen deserve to be heard!
