MNDSGN - SNAXX  NORTH AMERICA TOUR

“I think of all the posthumous Dilla leaks, and how I’ve always been just as, if not more inspired by the stuff that was never supposed to come out. Albums should be proper meals, but every now and then a snack can really hold you over.” 

Album cycles come around about once every two years, but Mndsgn, aka Ringgo Ancheta, is constantly making music. He wanted to do justice to his prolific creativity, so rather than let unreleased tracks wither and die on his hard drive, he decided to put out two records ahead of his next studio album, and the concept of Snax was born.

91.7 KXT Presents: Ben Kweller

Ben Kweller at Shipping & Receiving

Indie-rock icon, Ben Kweller, has captured the hearts of fans and critics for 15 years. Through his schizophrenic approach to music making, constant touring, and a punk-rock refusal to be pigeonholed, Kweller, has built the kind of career that rolls on regardless of fads and trends. His genre-jumping catalog of five albums, four EPs and multiple singles, has sold over half a million copies worldwide. 

Kweller hit the world stage in the mid 90’s as the leader of the self-proclaimed ‘Sugar Metal’ band, Radish. A top 40 hit in the UK gave the band a cult following and landed Kweller on the cover of Kerrang! Magazine. All of this, plus a world tour opening for Faith No More, forced the 15-year-old Kweller to drop out of high school and never look back.

Night Moves new album, Can You Really Find Me, pulsates and glows with the same sublime energy that radiated from breakout single “Carl Sagan” in 2016, however in the intervening years, John Pelant and Micky Alfano have grown up. The songwriting, while still steeped in super-catchy, velvety riffs and pure pop glaze, feels more sophisticated and modern. Since the pair met in high school, awestruck by such ear-candy wizards as Brian Wilson, Todd Rundgren, Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham, they set off to craft their version of what sophisticated, emotional modern pop music can and should sound like. 2016’s Pennied Days was a breakthrough, and set a new bar for the members of Night Moves. After spending the subsequent two years on Can You Really Find Me, they’ve scaled new heights, where the sounds are still just as sweet, but now smarter, more evocative, and perfectly designed for a summer release.

Originally from Norfolk, Virginia, Super Doppler has been touring the country extensively since the release of their debut album ‘Moonlight Anthems’ in 2017, produced by Matthew E. White of Spacebomb Records. In late 2017, the band recorded the six tracks of what would become ‘The Super Secret Singles Club’, releasing each single monthly throughout the first half of 2018.

After a busy 2018 on the road, the band holed up in their hometown of Norfolk, VA writing and rehearsing the songs that would eventually make up their brand new sophomore full-length album, ‘Super Doppler’. Splitting time between Dragon Ship Studios in Smithfield, VA and Montrose Recording in Richmond, VA, Super Doppler spent most of late 2018 and early 2019 in the studio tracking and preparing the album for release.

Super Doppler emerged from the studio in Spring 2019, releasing three singles leading up to the release of their new self-titled album on June 28, 2019. The band is now gearing up for an extensive U.S. album release tour in fall 2019.

Do214 Presents White Denim | Deep Ellum Art Company

In his 1942 essay The Myth of Sisyphus, Camus wrote that “All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant's revolving door.” 15 years later Richard Wayne Penniman wrote “Wop bop a loo bop a wop bam boom”, an undeniably powerful vocalization that on any given Wednesday in any given situation, civilized or otherwise, is still fully capable of setting somebody’s stuff aflame. Over ten years and seven long players into their career, White Denim are still in the relentless pursuit of a thread - in other words, a wick.

The Austin,Texas band have carefully and continuously studied the greatest records ever made, but they write songs just dumb enough to drink, dance, and fight to. Theirs is a music that aims for the whole body, while equally satisfying the mind. While it has morphed, expanded, and even burst apart, White Denim’s sincere and human drive and ability to spark true rock & roll exhilaration have been unerring constants of the band’s 10-year existence.

When Fruit Bats announced its new album and signing to Merge Records late last year, singer/songwriter Eric D. Johnson did so by “Getting in a Van Again.” The 15-minute mockumentary presented a surrealist view of the music industry, while teasing the very real themes explored on Gold Past Life—due out June 21, 2019.

“I know I said I’d be around this year, but here I am getting in a van again.”

Gold Past Life marks both an end and a beginning. It’s the end of an unintentional thematic trilogy of records that began with 2014’s EDJ (a solo record by name, but a Fruit Bats release in spirit) and hit an emotional peak with 2016’s Absolute Loser. They encompassed years of loss, displacement, and the persistent, low-level anxiety of the current political climate. They were written in the wake of friends who left these earthly confines and families that could have been.

His new EP, The Howl, set for release in the summer of 2015, is bigger, badder, and dancier than anything he's attempted to date. In his words, The Howl is "...a reflection of my years on the road, my dreams broken and reformed, and my growing addiction to the upbeat and the feel good." He chose the name after reading a review of his last album, in which he was described as an artist holding back a howl. So howling he will do: bigger songs, bigger shows, and bigger goals.

Aaron Lee Tasjan’s music is most often identified as Americana while critics point to his rock’n’roll influences, dropping names like Tom Petty, The Beatles, and David Bowie. The East Nashville based singer-songwriter and ace guitar is that made a habit of defying genre classification. As a teen, Tasjanwon a scholarship to Berklee School of Music to study jazz guitar. He quickly dropped out to start a glam punk band with friends then hit the road as an in-demand sideman, playing guitar for several well-known rock bands before relocating to Nashville where he focused on his own songs. Tasjan’s early solo recordings showcased his thought provoking lyrics in relatively traditional acoustic settings. His first full length release, “Silver Tears” found him exploring new sonic landscapes and earned rave reviews from fans and critics alike. Tasjan’s latest release,“Karma For Cheap” finds him blurring the lines between genres even further. Rolling Stone calls the new album“...a trippy stunner full of swirling, immersive rock songs that evoke both the effervescence of the Sixties and the grit of today.” Touring relentlessly, Tasjan is known for his fiery live performances which combine blazing guitar work with first rate song craft and witty storytelling.

Releasing their debut EP on NoiseTrade in 2013, and their first full-length album, Fire and Stone, in 2015, the duo has gained a steady following of listeners nationwide.

Their newest release, Ghost of a King, debuted at #3 on the iTunes singer-songwriter charts, rewarding listeners with immersive soundscapes and lyrical imagination. From poetic – almost Shakespearean – imagery to grand epics fit for darkened concert halls, to pop music infused with loops and infectious beats, the album possesses a remarkable range. In the context of that refreshing variety, the album stays cohesive thanks to its exploration of the human condition of longing.

Today, The Gray Havens are making the most well-crafted music of their career. Their next highly anticipated full-length album is expected to release in 2018.

Deftly he weaves different eras of the sound—blues, soul, gospel, rock and roll—through his own unique vision, never forced, always smooth, each note a tributary on the flowing river of rhythm and blues. The currents empty into an estuary, and into this well water Son dips his bucket—trusting innately in the magic’s existence.
And now, with his second full-length album, New Magic, he has delivered a profound statement, a cohesive creation that captures the diverse spirit of American music in a fresh and modern way.

Amasa Hines is a five piece rock band based in Little Rock, AR. Formed in 2012, their influences span a diverse spectrum from Soul to Indie Rock. The tight-knit group skillfully shapes their songs from homages, snapshots, skeletons and obsessions. Their lush, dynamic arrangements provide the platform for lyrical content sourced from observing intimate relationships, nature, and the perceived divine.

A new five-song EP "Ivory Loving Glass" will be released in 2018, followed by a full length follow up to their debut album “All The World There Is."

Culture Abuse | Club Dada 

Bay Dream, Epitaph’s first full-length release for the band, offers up ten impeccably-crafted songs full of personal and universal lessons. And the best advice is simple and practical. “Be kind to the bugs, be conscious of others, be careful with drugs, be kind to yourself even though it gets hard,” Kelling sings out clearly over searing, rhythmic guitars provided by John Jr and new addition Nick Bruder on “Bee Kind to the Bugs.” Together with Shane Plitt on bass and drummer Ross Travers the band provides the same strong rock foundations and memorable, critical lyrics as their debut, Peach, but Bay Dream travels exciting new territory for the five-piece.

A few months following the release of their second mixtape, Summer Break Mixtape , No Vacation went on an indefinite hiatus. Sabrina Mai, Marisa Saunders, Nat Lee, and Harrison Spencer officially reassembled in 2017 after playing shows under various names and a few line-up changes.

TOPS | Video Age at Satellite Bar 

TOPS are a four-piece band from Montreal, delivering a raw punk take on AM studio pop. Singer Jane Penny gives a new voice to the silent girl at the edge of the circle, disillusioned but honest and unpretentious, a tone complemented by David Carriere's seamless guitar playing and the measured drumming of Riley Fleck. TOPS' subtle arrangements are delivered with a cool restraint that blend with the individuality and self-assured desire of their female lead. TOPS gather strength through intimacy. Self-written, recorded and produced, their albums are impeccable examples of pop craftsmanship that reward repeat listens.

Toadies 

Toadies at Paper Tiger (San Antonio)

It’s been 26 years since the Toadies started playing rock music in Fort Worth, Texas. Through lineup changes, shelved albums, member departures, band break-ups, one-off reunions and full-on reformations, the Toadies are an act that has experienced nearly everything. After bursting onto the national scene in 1994 with their  reakthrough Rubberneck album, which begat their signature single “Possum Kingdom,” the successful follow-up single “Away” and the immense fan favorite “Tyler,” the Toadies returned to the studio in 1998 with the pressure of trying to match their first album’s success. That success didn’t translate to label support when the Toadies submitted their second album, Feeler. Perhaps aptly, things in general just went wrong. “We got approval for a record,” says Vaden Todd Lewis, “and somewhere in the process of handing over the masters to get mixed, it got unapproved. So we went back to the drawing board.” Eventually some of the Feeler tracks made it onto Hell Below/Stars Above—a sophomore offering that came seven years after Rubberneck. Disappointed and dejected, the band dissolved just a few months after that album’s release.
