Small Leaks Sink Ships
Small Leaks Sink Ships
Small Leaks Sink Ships is a four piece progressive art pop band currently residing in Portland, OR. Members consist of London Van Rooy, Judd Hancock, Jim Mandel, and Ryan Garner. The band merges synthetic samples and beats from scratch with the raw power of Acoustic instruments lead by a duo of distinct vocalists creating an eclectic and unique sound. Small Leaks has been through their fair share of obstacles over the years starting with a near fatal motorcycle accident in 2010 with member, Ryan Garner followed by a cancer diagnosis in 2011 with member Judd Hancock. By means of perseverance and pure stubbornness, the band managed to stick together through both recoveries delivering two Full Length albums and a 5 track EP. Now, the quartet ventures out to create their fourth installment, "Golden Calf" set to be released at the end of summer 2017 on Lefse Records
Drop Electric
Drop Electric
Based in a city known for stagnation and business as usual, Washington DC's Drop Electric exists to tell a different story about the nation's capital. Drop Electric’s music is a manic barrage of soaring vocals, heavy guitars, atmospheric textures, and tribal percussion, controlled by structured, dynamic songwriting. Their live show has been described as "epic" by NPR's Bob Boilen and most aptly "...as if the listener has started to sleepwalk through a dark art house film" by the DCist's Valerie Paschall.
Grubby Little Hands
Grubby Little Hands
Philadelphia cult favorites, Grubby Little Hands, use tuneful melodies, densely layered guitar and synth textures, and tight rhythmic foundations to create an amalgam of pop songwriting, paisley psychedelia, and vibrant avant-rock. This is packaged into songs that range from stadium-ready anthems and buoyant surf-rock to whispering lullabies and contemplative deep-cuts, making for a dynamic and mercurial listening experience. Their third album, Garden Party, was released in 2016 on Lefse Records and a fourth is currently in the works, expected to be ready for release in 2018.
