CAB 20 - Doing Music for the Love

Three single males from a small town in southern California. One plays guitar, one plays bass, and one beats the shit out of the drums.

Cab 20 is one of the youngest up and coming bands on the Southern California independent scene.  Hailing from Wl Segundo, CA, Bert Hoover (vocals/guitar), Jason Almanza (bass/vocals/organ) and Eric Contreras (drummer) began gigging around SoCal in 2008.  Cab 20's love for vintage sounds stretches beyond just their musical influences.  Thanks to crate digging parents, the band has a love for vinyl as well.  "We're like huge fans of vinyl and having something tangible is really important for our relationship to music," says Eric.  The band even released their debut album on vinyl. (as compiled on the bands website).

208 Talks of Angels ..

Good day, dear Pluto Radio!

We are very happy to reach you through the infinite web and we dare to bother you with a request.
We are a musical band from hostile Russia. But we strongly believe that our people are not the enemies, but all brothers and sisters. We sing our songs about difficulties we face, we sing about better things, that are achieved problematically, we try to stop provocations, trying to open the eyes and hearts and tell others to do the same. We believe in truth. But the songs we sing seem needless.
It will be a great honour for our musical group to offer you to listen to our works and that will be incredible if you can find some spare time for it.

The main project is called “208 Talks of angels” and it involves the diversity of all our thoughts and fantasies, styles and musical torrents. We hope with all our hearts, that you will like at least some of “208 Talks of angels”`s songs!

Milton Star ..

Milton Star
12 January 2015
Milton Star are Alan Wyllie and Graeme Currie who write and record their unique blend of indie and dark country in a converted church in darkest Fife. Each of their tracks is drenched in atmosphere -  think Velvet Underground meets vintage Glen Campbell via Rick Rubin collaborating on the next David Lynch movie or soundtracking the latest HBO crime drama…

Alan and Graeme's collaborations date back through many incarnations of live bands to the early days of post punk and a band called Thursdays who were signed to Fast Records.  After some years spent out of the music scene, they came back together in 2010, reinvigorated by a mutual dissatisfaction for what they describe as a "mostly insipid modern music scene", picking up the gauntlet to produce sweet structured melodies carried by an expansive tremolo wall of sound and a dark soul.

With shades of Soulsavers and Mark Lanegan evident, Milton Star's debut single 'Salvation' is the perfect marriage between brooding vocals and shimmering guitars underpinned by a driving beat.

THIS HOLY HOUSE - Americana / Indie / Rock / Folk with a little southern influence

This Holy House, formed in early 2010, have quickly made their mark in the music scene of Central Arkansas. Raised in Greenbrier, Arkansas, David and James Velek, and Elliott S. Cotten spent years separately honing their musical skills and have finally arrived on the same page. Their music is a reflection of the small-town up-bringing of the Velek brothers and Elliott S. Cotten, with their humble hearts and southern charm.

The sound that This Holy House brings, could be described as americana, indie, and rock, with a little folk and southern influence. The music ranges from ambient, sombre ballads, to high-energy foot-stomping anthems. Lyrically, the music speaks of the struggles of man, spiritually and emotionally.

In early 2012, This Holy House added Jordan Ahne to the group, expanding their already intense live sound. The four-piece now consists of: David Velek on bass guitar and back vocals, Elliott S. Cotten on guitar and lead vocals, James Velek on drums and back vocals, and Jordan Ahne on guitar and back vocals. The addition of Jordan also allows the band to incorporate studio instruments including: mandolin, banjo and piano, previously missing in live performances.

The band recorded their first full-length album, "Love and Hope in the War Times", in the summer of 2011 at Blue Chair Studios in Austin, Arkansas. After playing many shows in Central Arkansas, the band has taken their music on the road across many states and multiple regions of the country. The band plans to tour much more, and bring their music to as many as possible. (as compiled on the bands website)

He's working on his album since around 1999 with some breaks here and there but 2008 has finally seen it brought to light. Grown up with progressive/art rock his music reflects this experiences and interests what also can be seen at the huge list of bands and artists which influenced him over the years. John Ludi plays all the instruments and also provides the vocals which makes this album to a completely rounded piece of work fulfilling his appreciation of writing lyrics and composing modern prog music. The songs are also spiked with references to wellknown bands and different prog genres and his conclusion is: 'They were to me, in fact, mini-symphonies filled with imagery and nuance, imagination and passion . far more of such than the average 3 minute pop/rock song could ever hope to deliver'. THE QUIET EARTH ORCHESTRA is not signed by a label deliberately. Anyhow - the songs can be downloaded from services like CD Baby and should receive attention in any case.

The Truths ...

Weedy indie, new rave, old wave, post-rock blah blah blah, at last a band to cut through all the bullshit and actually make you fall in love with music again!

Critical response to their live shows has been ecstatic, prompting one journalist to exclaim "The Truths are the best band I’ve seen in ten years”, Stoked magazine calling them “a sexy, aggressive wall of sound”, The Guardian calling them “absolutely f*****g amazing!” etc.

After Anthony Neale (vocals) and Joe Taylor (guitar) met through a mutual friend they started jamming on Anthony's songs and almost immediately a strong musical partnership was formed and they knew they wanted to set the world ablaze with their music. "The chemistry was there from the start”, says Joe. “It just felt right”. Having met bass player James Goddard, Joe knew that he would fit right in. Simon Ward-Wilson (keyboards, guitar) and powerhouse drummer Dave Neale were the last pieces of the jigsaw. “After the first rehearsal it was clear we could make a sound bigger than the sum of our parts”- Anthony Neale.

With one of the most charismatic lead singers around and a huge stage presence as a band, they’ve been described as “something that’s been missing from British music for a long time”. With their sights set high The Truths look set to kick the doors in this year, and take their place as one of England most exciting new bands (all as compiled from the bands website)

Led By The Blind ..

Led By The BlindOnce upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away…. The members of Led By The Blind were spawned from half human and half extra-terrestrial DNA. A historical extra-terrestrial family then brought them to Earth where they joined as one to spread the message that we are not alone. With all of them implanted with homing devices, each member easily found one another after years of honing their individual skills to be sure the message could be heard. They say don’t believe what you hear. If you see it, believe it. We’re all led by the blind.

The Black Beards on the commercial free Pluto Radio stream.

En este año 2006 que ahora acaba de terminar la bada mallorquina The black beards ha editado su flamante disco de debut "Rock and Roll y se han lanzado a una gira que les trae a Medina del Campo y Valladolid para cerrar los cocniertos del ciclo de Otoño del Asklepios. Nos pusimos en contacto con ellos y esto nos han trasmitido (Miguel bass, dic 2006)

Habeis sacado un CD con excelentes críticas y que ademas ha sidoseleccionado como maketa del mes en la revista "Guitarra total",no está malpara un primer trabajo¿que planes teneis con este CD en un futuro inmediato?
La verdad es que no podemos quejarnos de las críticas, puesto que de momento, todas las publicadas han sido positivas (¡lo cual no deja de sorprendernos!). Por otro lado, nuestra intención és fundamentalmente presentar el cd en directo en tantos lugares como sea posible. De momento hemos cubierto buena parte del territorio de Mallorca y, ahora, con estas cuatro actuaciones en la península deseamos empezar a proyectarnos por todo el ámbito estatal. La idea sería volver a la península por Pascua i verano para actuar en todas las localidades donde se nos presente la ocasión. Pensad que para un grupo de las Islas, poder cruzar el charco (con los costes econòmicos y la dificultad de encontrar lugares donde tocar) es, además de una aventura, una gran oportunidad. Esperemos que la acogida sea buena y sea necesario reeditar el cd, mientras vamos preparando el que serà nuestro segundo trabajo (del cual vais a tener un pequeño avance en estos conciertos). En definitiva, lo importante para un grupo de rock es tocar en directo, y eso es lo deseamos.  (per the band's webpage)

THE GROOMING - Alternative / Electronica

The Grooming project, formed by Giackxx ( Giacomo Vanelli as dj and at the synth ) and Paolo Girelli (bass guitar), was born as an electronic Italian duo project to become later a multiform set of projections and videoperformances improved by Diego Bartole (drums) and Daniele Falletta (guitar). Show by show, song by song, also the voice starts having an important role. The concept of having many different singers (both on stage and virtual) is caracterized by the permanent contribution and it also represents a sustainable expression. Inspired by the Bristol sound the Grooming started playing in 2007 in Milan. Expressiveness and technology, melody and electronic music, mind and instrument face each other, mixing, fighting and seducing each other in a creative chaos that up to now has seen the predominance of the human factor. The Groomging are also interested in the visual stimulation through original video projections and video performances during their live act. (as compiled on the bands website)
