THE TREASURE FLEET (members of Arrivals, The Lawrence Arms, Sass Dragons, Smoking Popes)

In summer 2010, Thotz restarted the defunct Bible Children (formed in LA with Todd C. of Toys That Kill) with friends and local Chicago musicians Neil Hennessy (of the Lawrence Arms) on bass, Dave Merriman (of the Arrivals) on keys, Mike Oberlin (of Sass Dragons) on drums, and Eli Caterer (of Smoking Popes) on lead guitar. Now called Treasure Fleet, this new psych sound is punk’s weird, dirty, drugged-out answer the folk-punk that’s dominated the scene for the last decade.

LENGUAS LARGAS

A bunch of dirty DIY dudes playing stony, pleasant, intricate music that builds tension then releases. It’s subtle, yet pleasant; thick, swirling, and as fingering as white smoke exhaled deeply from a pipe. I don’t mind weird if it rocks. I don’t mind psychrock if the “rock” part’s not just a handy post-it note whacked onto the side of masturbation. Lenguas Largas has the Roky Erickson Weird-O-Meter pegged. They’re also carrying a mile-long locomotion’s worth of quarry-grade rock, freshly blasted from the earth. - T.Taylor, Razorcake

THE RESONARS

The Resonars play a style of 60s psychedelic pop that is reminiscent of the Beatles early experimental stage. The Resonars have an excellent grasp on the high-flying vocal harmony over driving guitars and slightly distorted bass. In short, they're awesome.

PURPLE 7

Born out of the heady Magnetic South collective, Purple 7 features members of Defiance, OH, Landlord, Fat Shadow and Hot New Mexicans.

MAWRCREST

Influence by the classics in rock, surf, folk and country, Mawrcrest has embarked on a journey exploring new horizons in what defines an American band. What you will experience with this band is a century of popular music reinterpreted by the soul of a new generation, that is Mawrcrest.
