The Soil & The Sun
The Soil & The Sun
the Soil and the Sun are, of course, great partners in the mystery that is creating life, making things grow. Out of Grand Rapids, MI, Alex, Ashley, Benjamin, and Kellen make music in the delicate balance between simplicity and complexity. Through soaring vocal melodies, ethereal synth textures, driving guitars, and pulsing electro-organic rhythms, these four friends explore the human condition and reach for greater meaning.
Mammoth Indigo
"If you're looking for art-oriented indie-rock without all the pretense – here it is." - Earbuddy
Illiterate light
Illiterate Light is an indie rock duo from Harrisonburg VA comprised of Jeff Gorman and Jake Cochran. Gorman and Cochran have collaborated on different projects over the past six years - writing and touring with their previous band Money Cannot Be Eaten, managing a small organic farm in the Shenandoah Valley, organizing bicycle tours, among other things. Illiterate Light is their newest project and the culmination of previous work together. Washed-out guitar sounds, droning synth bass, tight vocal harmonies, spacious rock drumming. They write about paradox and the desire to go beyond modernist rationalism and postmodern nihilism.
