The Life And Times
Allen Epley: more strings, Chris Metcalf: no strings, Eric Abert: four strings
from Kansas City, MO

Since August of 2005, The Life and Times has played over 200 shows in support of their debut full-length release Suburban Hymns (DeSoto) on US tours with bands like the Appleseed Cast, Murder By Death, Pelican, Mono, Sparta, Pinback, Engine Down, and William Elliot Whitmore. In June of 2006, they headlined a two week tour of Spain in support of an eponymous split CD/10", both of which with urgent post-rockers from Barcelona, Nueva Vulcano (ex-Aina).

The Magician EP (Stiff Slack), their fourth overall release, is a fad-free snapshot of a band that’s constantly morphing from a dragon, to a butterfly, to blinding white light, to a bird, to Godzilla, and back again, often within the space of just one song. RIYLs don't do the band justice from a recorded or live standpoint, but suffice it to say that the sound on the Magician EP puts them in company with artists like Pink Floyd, Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, Swervedriver, Built to Spill and just a pinch of early U2. In October of 2006 they headlined a successful Japanese tour in support of The Magician for Stiff Slack Records (Mercury Program, 31 Knots, Shiner, Mates of State), and then a US/Canadian excursion in November and December of 2006.

The Silhouette Era
Carlos J Gonzalez: Vocals/Guitar/Keys. James Findlay: Drums. Clayton Payton: Bass. Justin Horrell: Guitar.
from San Francisco, CA
The Silhouette Era practically define Northern California’s own brand of surf pop; not that of hot summer nights, but of freezing dawns and the sobering ennui that can only be found when you look, bleary-eyed out into an infinity of grey sky and ocean. Their sophomore record was produced by Jay Pellicci at Tiny Telephone Recording Studio in San Francisco.

Julie Lynn, Geoffrey Scott, Scott Putnam, Greg Dubrow.

Here's an incredibly ethereal band that is not shoegaze at all--just a sympathetic of the great undiscovereds in contemporary moody effects-driven rock...they use a steady, understated, anchor beat, loping, limber basslines, and then, momentously, spiderweb guitar parts that circle, tickle, chime, ring, and repeat, looping into peacefully mesmeric riffs. Thus, they have more in common with not only For Against, but The Feelies, Murmur R.E.M., the 'Beginning to See the Light' Velvets, Chills, and ’80s Brit postpunk than dreampop—even if the effect is as dreamy, beautiful, and greatly affecting. -
