Videotape magnetizes harmony with noise into a driving, slightly melancholic, pop that reminds me of gazing at my shoes while dancing to The Stone Roses. The female vocals add a haunting touch and combined with the abandoned cathedral sound of the recording, the album will be well suited for echoing in your earbuds this Fall. - Brandon Kim with IFC
Milktooth's songs are romantic and inquisitive, crafted with so much of the heart that's too often missing from Nashville's hit factories.
Born of a mutual appreciation for jazz, country, good bourbon, and black coffee, Labors' owe just as much to Chet Baker as they do Hank Williams. Labors' brand of sad bastard music is Midwestern to the core. The Chicag0-based quartet started out as an outlet for the songs of Kansas City native Zachariah Melton. After relocating to Chicago, Melton was joined by bassist Jacob Hand, drummer Addison Ashbaugh, and guitarist Alexis Dionissopoulos.
Jack and Ace is Bob Nanna (Braid, Hey Mercedes) and Lauren LoPiccolo, playing soulful, personal songs about life, love, and whatever happens next. They are currently writing their first album, which was partially inspired by a recent trip to Death Valley.
