The Tet Holiday
Mark Goldsworthy, Henry Ruddel, Liam Matthews, Tom Kelly, and George Mitchell.
-From Leeds, UK.
-Brash and opinionated, short and sharp, fast and furious, Leeds punk five piece Eagulls are the missing link in your record collection between post-punk and slacker rock, and every bit as essential as that description may sound.
Formed two years ago by Mark Goldsworthy and drummer Henry Ruddel, the lineup was completed by Liam Matthews on guitar, Tom Kelly on bass, and George Mitchell on vocals, the band caused a splash from the off with their debut single on Not Even Records, the fuzzy, densely sprawling epic "Council Flat Blues."
After slowly but surely building up a cult of ardent admirers via raucous shows and sold out EP releases, Eagulls have now signed to Partisan and are finally getting ready to release their much anticipated debut album.
Cadien, Clay, Connor, and Jack.
-From Chicago, Illinois.
-No Dale Cooper, Laura Palmer, Black Lodge or Donna Hayward. No midnight trysts over the border at One Eyed Jacks. Instead, itinerant fuzzy rock & roll from a bunch of young TUrks who call Chicago home.
After playing in various band throughout their teenage years, Twin Peaks- Cadien, Clay, Connor, and Jack- self-released their self-recorded album, and completed a 3-week self-booked tour in the summer of '12. Since then, the industrious lads attended college for a semester, promptly dropped out, played SXSW, and are slated to re-release their Sunken debut via Aquarium Drunkard's Autumn Tone Records. Sunken rolls catchy hooks, chorused guitars, chugging rhythms, and blasts of pure rock & roll snarl into one super-tight album. While there is no shortage of sophistication in their arrangements, Twin Peaks' songs eschew the bullshit and stay true to their youthful reality- pretty girls, smoking & drinking in the park, wilding around the streets of Chicago. Unapologetic. Honest. Fresh out of the garage.
The Tet Holiday
A. Gibbons, R. Pruett and A. Ledford.
-From Oakland, California.
-Though Oakland, California's The Tet Holiday has been a rotating cast of musicians since lead guitarist and vocalist Andrew Ledford coined the name in 2006, one thing has remained consistent throughout: pop-perfect songwriting enveloped in dreamy distortion that will leave you wondering if your drink was tampered with (in a good way). Comprised of Ledford, Austin Gibbons (bass), and Robbie Pruett (drums), The Tet Holiday drenches Ledford's rapturous pop melodies in a sticky shoe-glaze, delivering wave after wave of three-and-a-half minute bliss.
