Rose City Band is celebrated guitarist Ripley Johnson. A prolific songwriter, Johnson started Rose City Band as an outlet nimble enough to match the pace of his writing as well as to explore songwriting styles apart from Wooden Shjips and Moon Duo. Rose City Band allows him to follow his musical muses as they greet him and not be bound by the schedules of bandmates and demands of a touring group.

On Earth Trip, Johnson colors songs with a country-rock twang and a melancholic, wistful undertone. Themes recur such as pining for summers spent in the company of friends to newer meditations on space, stillness and the splendor of the natural world. Johnson’s laid-back and classically West Coast songs communicate emotions entirely of the moment with both his lyrics, intimate vocal style as well as his elegant elongated guitar lines and astute use of counter-melodies on the pedal steel.

Earth Trip was written during the period of sudden shocks and drastic lifestyle changes of 2020, quite literally “called down off the road” as he sings in elegiac album opener “Silver Roses”. Home for an extended period for the first time in years, he was able to reconnect with simple pleasures of home life: hikes in nature, bathing outside and waking with the dawn. Johnson found hope and healing in forming a more mindful relationship with the natural world, from the simple pleasures of tending a garden to sleeping out under the stars. “Lonely Places” in particular captures the sheer joy and freedom of losing oneself in nature, an ode to the wealth of natural beauty the west coast provides, as well as the importance of appreciating wild, open spaces. “In the Rain” seeks beauty and hope in life’s darker moments, while “Dawn Patrol” finds solace in the earth’s natural rhythms.

    Low Hums

    Music

    Low Hums are a musical collective of many that began their musical trip in 2009 in Seattle Washington. Maybe described as modern garage rock and roll psychedelia. We listen to the past, but we write about the now and the future. 

     

     “It’s the kind of music that makes you wanna move around. It doesn't just go up and down, but side to side and all around ..  sounds like a killer mixtape.” - Mojo

     

    “Where have you all been hiding out?“ - Rolling Stone

     

    “Hey call us over next time” - NME  

     

    “I bet my mom and her hippy friends would dig this just as much as I am.” - NPR 

     

    Low Hums have released 5 full length LP’s, including two on Germany’s Kozmik Artifactz, the galactic tastemaker of psych/fuzz/stoner/rock. The latest release, titled “Zzyzx”, ( recorded / produced with Trevor Spencer who also worked on Father John Misty, Beach House, and many others in Woodenville’s Way Out studios. ) has seen airplay and fans from America, Europe, Mexico City, Ho Chi Minh City and all in between.  

     

    In an incredible turn of events, ‘Zzyzx’, the title of the latest full length LP comes to us via collective guitarist Miles Panto. While returning from Baja, his “Space Cruiser” ( seriously ! )  van gave up the snuff about an hour outside of Las Vegas at Zzyzx road. Instead of calling AAA he phoned HQ and said “HEY, I HAVE THE TITLE OF THE NEW RECORD. HOW ABOUT ZZYZX ! “
