    Olden Yolk

    Psychedelic

    Olden Yolk is a New York-based group whose penchant for dystopian folk, abstract poeticism, and motorik rhythms have enveloped them in a sound uniquely of-the-moment yet simultaneously time-tested. The project is led by songwriters, vocalists, and multi-instrumentalists Shane Butler and Caity Shaffer, whose interlaced vocals are found guiding each composition on their enlivening self-titled debut. The project was initially conceived in 2012 by Butler as an outlet for one-off songs and visual art while touring and releasing albums with the band Quilt (Mexican Summer). Following the release of a split-record with Weyes Blood in 2014, Olden Yolk became a collaborative entity

    Mega Bog

    Dream Pop

    As rain water gathers in the midnight gutter we are reminded of a band. A band that shrinks and blossoms, exhales and swells. A band that sings sweet lounge music for seedy auto mechanic districts. A band known to devolve into bleak emotional turmoil before audiences. A band called Mega Bog. 

    Mega Bog is the ever-evolving moniker of song-dribbler Erin Birgy, a Pacific Northwest rodeo child with an unmistakable laugh who was allegedly cursed upon conception. Birgy often collaborates with a few Northwest jazzy power-trolls to create loving sound for evil poems, most frequently Zach Burba (songwriter of pop group iji and author of this bio). Melodies always lush, erotic and free. Chords always dissonant, abstract and evolutionary. If no one ever asked for a band like Mega Bog, it's because they didn't know they should.

    Pop

    iji (pronounced: ‘eehee’) is a West Coast pop group led by songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Zach Burba of Seattle, WA. A consistent 10 years of touring and spewing countless, lush, home-made records and tapes has cemented iji as a notable voice in the USA’s underground DIY music scene. In 2015 iji released the highway opus, “Whatever Will Happen” (TL-83), the band’s first studio album and debut with Team Love Records. iji now offers a new studio album that named itself “Bubble” (TL-96).

    While out on tour in 2015, iji began collectively writing down and sharing all band member’s dreams in one journal. This new practice inspired Burba to write an album in dream language; An album which explores the abstract and absurd tendencies of a confused and distracted mind. Recorded in only 5 days, the record is more of a band effort than any previous release, pointing to a raw and wild, new energy. Lightly tipping the scales more towards the DB’s than Squeeze; More towards Orange Juice than Aztec Camera. The current iji band, which features members of Sick Sad World, Pill Wonder and Neighbors, believes in playing without reservation, without fear. Trusting whatever comes out, simply for the love of wild music

    Usual band members:

    Zach Burba (Songs, Instruments), Will Murdoch (Bass, Synth ), Jake Jones (Drums), Evan Easthope (Guitar), Tyler Martin (Synth)
