  • Free Throw

    Free Throw

    Emo

    Free Throw is: Cory Castro, Jake Hughes, Justin Castro, Kevin Garcia, Lawrence Warner III

    Two years before Free Throw formed in Nashville, the Memphis Grizzlies made national headlines for their “grit and grind.” Some not familiar with basketball may assume this was another phrase describing the team’s tireless work ethic. Journalists and analysts claimed this “grit and grind” was their disruptive defense. A free throw is usually given to a player disrupted by defense -- so while unintentionally borrowing the ethos of their home state’s NBA franchise, Free Throw went on the offensive.

    Consider the band’s signature play: a three-guitar attack which stacks raw immediacy with large-scale aspirations. Sometimes this arrangement is abrasive; other times it’s more nuanced. What connects these two different threads is Cory Castro’s frayed vocals, gaining their power from a violent shout and their confessions from a measured whimper. Combine that range with a set of lyrical themes that play out like an uneasy three-way phone call and what remains fills speakers with a darkness offset by instrumentals which sway and bend with warm nostalgia.

    But what fills most of Free Throw’s golden playbook is a commitment to winning their own way. After strings of DIY touring circuits and an intense love affair with their van, it’s clear to see their blooming, road-tested legacy answers to no one but their enthusiastic audiences. With their live sets packing rooms across the country, not without alcohol and crowd sing-alongs in tow, it seems this grind has paid off so far, with the grit packing their songs with not just unrelenting talent, but the forward-thinking energy to match.

  • Kayak Jones

    Alternative Rock

    Kayak Jones is a four-piece band from Dubuque, IA that stands at the end of an emotional crisis. Their delicate balance of emo, pop-punk, and guts-out radio grinds out its confessions the same way you might at critical junctures: with grit teeth, white knuckles, and double the heart.

  • Charmer

    Charmer

    Emo

    Charmer is a four piece Midwestern Emo band from Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Charmer released their debut Self-Titled LP via No Sleep Records in April of 2018
