    Wild Ones

    Pop

    Wild Ones delve into the bliss and burden that musicians are tasked with today: create work that captures your spirit, but do it without selling your soul. Self-produced and recorded, they walk the line of DIY oddity and polished pop sheen. Hailing from Portland, Oregon, the band combines the talents of lead vocalist Danielle Sullivan, keyboardist Thomas Himes, drummer Seve Sheldon, guitarist Nick Vicario and bassist Max Stein. Growing up on Cocteau Twins and En Vogue, their sound is a mash of R&B synths, muted guitar, and somber vocal melodies. After 7 years together, they've hit their stride in creating work that poses questions about art and authenticity.

    Mirror Touch, the band's latest record releasing in October 2017 via Topshelf Records, explores spaces of isolation, loneliness and how it feels when the line between self and other becomes blurred. The record title refers to the condition "Mirror Touch Synesthesia" and the physiological experience of empathy. How can you know yourself, when in public you become everyone else? The songs explore the quest to maintain artistic self-integrity in an industry that seeks to homogenize. Solitary in their process of collaboration, Himes and Vicario produce the music, while Sullivan crafts lyrics and melodies, their attempt at self-preservation against the ever-changing expectations of what music should or should not be. Combining their style of upbeat melodies with a backdrop of darker lyrical themes, an inquiry into their artistic process ultimately reflects a balance between earnest head nods to their favorite sounds with a fierce loyalty to their own sense of self.

    Marinero

    Music

    Marinero is the solo guise of Jess Sylvester, a San Francisco native. Drawing from life in Califas as well as time spent in Guadalajara, his songs inhabit several times and places at once, be it the esquinas of lowrider-era Mission Street, the sepia-toned Jalisco villas of his abuelas, or the eternal ever-reaching California coast. Rooted but always musing on what came before and what could have come to be, Marinero’s music floats between the familiar and the fantastic, like a half-remembered dream of Don Quijote.

    Sylvester’s other current projects also lie in this threshold, from the Pan-American digital pop duo Francisco y Madero to the lost-in-time no-fi Nuggets punk of Violent Change. Marinero brings it all together -- sampled breaks, hectic live percussion, harmonized vocals, fuzz guitar, maracas, flutes, Omnichords and laptops can all be summoned to bring forth the vibe by any means necessary.

    Marinero’s latest EP, CHICAN@, released on 4/20 2016 backed by a West Coast tour in July, with new work from FyM and Violent Change looming in the horizon.
