Pine Barons
Pine Barons
Born among the pitch pines of southern New Jersey, Pine Barons is a brotherhood of four artists aiming to find their rock n roll destinies. With a wide spectrum of influences, from classic rock to folk, jazz, and punk, Pine Barons is an amalgamation of four personalities and visions whose friendship and respect shape their craft. After many half-magical high fives, this troupe of ultra-pals have scribed their plans to spread their music to the thinkers, friends, lovers, and magicians of the world and combat forces of malice.

“Their clever, playful name got our attention, and their snappy music held it.”
-John Vettese, The Key WXPN

“Although their name is rooted in the forest, Pine Barons’ music travels across wide open ranges and some rather rocky terrain, offering an interestingly mixed, yet fully organic, bag of influences and surprises.”
-Peter Quinton, Monmouth University

“The glum tapering of the summer season in songs that feel more alive than you’re probably thinking right now. Listen and you’ll hear the triumphant graveyard shifting of Creeper Lagoon or some mutant, less mahogany-covered version of the capital Beachwood Sparks. You’ll hear in them musky warmth, the smell of a toasty, wood-smoked flannel, rainbowed Autumn trees and a night cut wide open by a spitting orange bonfire.”
-Sean Moeller, Daytrotter
Vundabar
Vundabar
Vundabar began as a recording project between Brandon Hagen and Drew McDonald during their last year in high school together. Since then it has grown into far more. In April of 2013 they released their first album 'Antics' independently, which was followed up with multiple US tours and their first European tour, a two month string of shows with an emphasis on Festival dates as well as club dates. They have since returned to Europe for a second tour in the fall of 2014 and are anticipating a follow up tour in the spring of 2014. All of this being said, the three current members are only between 19 and 20 years of age. The Boston trio has been described as jangle pop and often compared to the likes of The Pixies and Thee Oh Sees for their quiet/loud dynamic and pop sensibility. They're know for their energetic live sets, and comedic approach to the performance.
Howlish
Howlish
Howlish is an ambient/alternative rock band from Philadelphia. They have been writing and performing together since the release of their debut EP, Open Bones (2014). Since then, through shows across the East Coast, they have built on the EP's songs to create a grittier, more intimate, and more groove-laced sound. Their next album, 0uter reintroduces the band as they venture into spacey, experimental, and dark sonic territories. 0uter will be available 11.17.15.
