    We're the Kings of Cavalier,

    So jelly neck and plug your ears,

  • Maklak

    Maklak

    Rock

    Maklak has been going strong on our own since 2009: releasing their own albums, putting together their own studio for other local bands, plus multiple successful DIY tours around the county. In 1997, MikeL Perkins started writing and recording his own music in his parents’ garage, singing and playing every instrument. Naming the project Maklak, his writing style incorporated strong dynamics, hard timing shifts, and concise melodies. Some years later, as Maklak rose from a side-project to a full-fledged act, MikeL moved from Whidbey Island to Seattle and recruited members to fill out the band. In 2010, he found a solid guitarist/songwriter in Scott Stewart of Stew Studios/Muldoon. Scott's sludgy yet ethereal guitar added a sophisticated bottom-heavy sound that took Maklak to new a sonic realm. In 2010, MikeL enlisted production master Jack Endino (Nirvana, Skin Yard, Soundgarden...), who agreed to co-produce and record the debut self-titled album for Maklak. The final mastering touches on the album were done by northwest legend Chris Hanzsek (Melvins, CZ Records). In 2010 and 2011, Maklak tirelessly promoted the new album, with multiple DIY style tours around the country.
    In 2013 Maklak recorded a 7-inch single mixed by Tad Doyle at Witch Ape Studios. It includes two covers, Angel (by Massive Attack) and Wandering Star (by Portishead); showing a heavier and more melodic Maklak... with Tad Doyle's production. Deepskull records signed Maklak and released the limited edition vynyl to great reviews. 
    2013 also brought about the introduction of bassist David Wendling, previously with local band Shiver also with MikeL. Finally having the rythym section they'd been looking for Maklak went back into the studio for their sophmore album, Age of Anxiety. Re-enlisting the help of producer Jack Endino, as well as featuring guest appearances from Slippage and Gladiators Eat Fire/Witch Ripper, the album promises to be an evolution of Maklak's ever progressing sound. Late 2016 brought the introduction of the heavy handed drummer Nanu (Zealandia). Maklak has had the privilege of opening for: Stabbing Westward, HR(of Bad Brains), Jack Endino, and One Line Drawing (Jonah from Far).
    They’ve had write-ups in Seattle Weekly and other local press; also have been played on radio stations KISW,KEXP, KNDD, UCLA. In total they’ve completed 5 US Tours and we're featured as one of the top 3 underground bands in Seattle in 2017. Maklak will also appear on the new television documentary series "It happened here" as the featured emerging artist of Seattle in early 2018.

  • Bear Axe

    Bear Axe

    Rock

    Rooted in prog-rock with a thunder of soul, Seattle band BEARAXE is poised to bring the pain with a triumphant sweep of rebellion. This band self identifies as a three piece and a biscuit, combining the bone shattering vocals of soul- singer Shaina Shepherd with an electrified fusion of funk, jazz and proto-punk. BEARAXE has been rocking dive bars across the Northwest since the summer of 2016 -- merging their unique brand of storytelling with the low-lit grit of the Seattle grunge movement.
