Pleasant Creak is an indie/emo band form Boulder Colorado. It began as the solo project of songwriter Spencer Kalata in 2013, but has since expanded into a full band. Pleasant Creaks angst filled and introspective brand of indie punk is often categorized with the "emo revival' scene of the twenty-tens.
Alto Nido is a one man band from Sweden, by 21 year old Jakob Johansson. I’ll be honest- I did not expect to like this music before I heard it. I don’t know why; just something about hearing the words “one man band” and “Sweden.” I have no issue with either of these terms. I love Sweden. I love one man bands. I only say this because I want you to be aware of the uphill battle Alto Nido had to win me over.
The Strips are a rock band from Eau Claire, WI. These guys have me baffled. I think they are the least talented band I have ever heard. Beats are dropped, notes are mishit, vocals are ruff, sometimes the drums sound like a Casio keyboard. the lead guitar is a... is a.. I don't what the freckles it is.
Viva Apollo has been playing with their current lineup since Summer of 2013. This San Diego band is nothing but full power. This music is made to be turned up in your car, cranked on your home stereo, or blasted from an 80's boom box.
Remember how the 80's had good music? Some of it was utter shit. I don't want candy, I don't want to take on me, i don't want tainted love.. bamp bamp... tainted love. Sometimes I feel that the eighties sucked so hard that I can't escape them. I need to get away from anything that sounds like them. All The Wine from the Chicago suburbs drive into the heart of what made the good music from the 80's great. You can hear it on their recently released EP "Summer Parade"
"Do you feel Good? You should feel good- Be happy mister.Fashion Bath(Asheville, NC) will make you feel good. Good pop music has a negative meaning most of the time. if I were to say "These guys are a really good pop band!!!" some people might automatically not listen because they think Backstreet Boys are back again, alright... But this is not an insult. These guys write great pop.
Trevor Fett plays guitar and sings and raps. It is very minimalist and I like it. Have you ever wondered what it would like to have Adam Sandler mix words with Woody Guthrie while Bob Dylan plays chess with Robert Johnson? I think this music is it.
I am not sure what any of these songs are about. I am really not sure if Trevor knows either. The guitar stands bouncing between two chords, maybe three, while a sort rappy, mono toned and expressive vocal pokes your ear. Some might say this sucks. Your mom would hate this shit. Aren't moms suppose to hate good music anyways though?

Compositions from hexadecimal data, that is - converting photos into hexadecimal, then converting the data into notes and re-arranging the notes into a composite…
