Tour Dates: Joshua Powell & The Great Train Robbery


Everyone knows that people go to Florida to die, but fewer people know that there are people who get born there too. Caught between the dualistic disenchanting scenes of Buffet cover bands and high school hardcore, a young Joshua Powell transplanted to the Midwest in pursuit of education and new art.

Now a loudening voice in the Indiana independent music community, Powell has carved out a niche in his new home by setting his hyper-literate lyrics to broad swaths of psych-folk and shedding the vocal affectations of a varied past.

The Great Train Robbery was born in Anderson, IN and named for a 1903 Western. The band serves as a revolving door of collaborating musicians to underscore Powell’s evolving craft and has independently released two EPs and two full-lengths since their inception in 2011. In the wake of the Appalachian-tinged folk record Man Is Born for Trouble, Joshua departed on a Kerouacian gypsy spree, touring back and forth across the country, playing six nights a week, and living in an old minivan. When he eventually returned to the Indiana town that molded his art, he laid down fibrous roots and refocused his energies into becoming a regional staple. Here, he began funneling his collected experiences into his most ambitious record yet, the newly-released Alyosha: a psychedelically-tinged electric folk album, spiritually informed by classic Russian literature and pressed to vinyl. Evoking comparisons to Sufjan Stevens and Neil Young, No Depression described Powell’s sound as “lushly-composed chamber folk…revival-in-the-river folk mysticism.”

As Powell and his transiently shifting backing band have extrapolated this sound, they have played over 400 shows, opened for such national acts as Mike Mains & the Branches, Seabird, and The Soil & the Sun, and played festivals like Indy Folk Fest (IN), Starry Night (IN,) Midpoint Music Fest (OH), and Lincoln Calling (NE).

Phosphene To Release Breaker EP On April 29th


“It was like we were breaking through something,” says Bay Area trio Phosphene’s Matt Hemmerich (drums) on their forthcoming EP Breaker. “We were writing direct, propulsive music that felt intensely cathartic.” The trio, comprised of Hemmerich, Rachel Frankel (vocals/guitar), and Kevin Kaw (bass/guitar), spent 2015 preparing their sophomore 6-song release Breaker, the follow-up EP to their S/T debut album that came out during a whirlwind 2014, garnering acclaim and generating support in the Bay Area from The Bay Bridged and The Owl Magazine (the band just played the magazine’s 10 year anniversary show), and resulting in winning free studio time from the Converse Rubber Tracks program, where the band recorded eventual EP track “Silver,” which premiered at Overblown.

They returned to the same recording studio, Different Fur Studios, on Valentine’s Day 2015 to track a second song, “Be Mine,” which premiered on The Bay Bridged and will also appear on the EP, and eventually to track the rest of the release, partnering with Sean Paulson (Tobias Jesso Jr, DIIV) for recording and mixing, and tapping Piper Payne from Coast Mastering to master the record.

Breaker, set for release on CD and digital formats on April 29th, 2016, was written during a time of severance. “Some of us were closing chapters in external relationships, which brought a clean slate mentality to the band,” says Hemmerich. Breaker is a diverse but unified pack of tunes. “For our second release, we sought a more cohesive, defined sound. The three of us got to write as a trio for the first time, so there was a natural evolution.” The melodies and instrumentation for Breaker were primarily inspired by Slowdive, Interpol, Low, and Alvvays, while the overall aim, as Hemmerich told Overblown, “is to create honest, emotive songs that we can share with others. We’re hoping to evoke something with our music”.

Seattle 5-piece John Dillon To Release Debut Album The Lost Estate


Seattle 5-piece dream pop band John Dillon (members of Kithkin, Tomten, & friends) are preparing to release their forthcoming debut album The Lost Estate, which will be the inaugural release from new Seattle imprint Plume Records, due out on March 25th on vinyl and digital formats.

“Making things sleazy yet heartfelt was a fun, sometimes hilarious, process,” says Dillon Sturtevant, songwriter and frontman of Seattle band John Dillon, on recording the band’s debut album The Lost Estate. The album was written both before and after Sturtevant moved from the East coast to Seattle. “Being in a new place, trying to make ends meet, exploring, and encountering different people and different cultures has a way of making you hyper-aware and creative,” Sturtevant reflects. “Some of these songs I brought over to the Northwest with me, and they grew as I did.” The 11-song collection is characterized by lush production, hi-lo-fi sounds, sincerity laced with humor, humor laced with melancholy, and a melodic bent.

The Lost Estate, named as a kind of castoff reference to a French novel that has lurked in Sturtevant’s mind since he read it years ago, hazily navigates through sun-bleached remembrances. “Writing these songs, I was concerned in a very fundamental way with the almost mystical nature of passage from childhood to adulthood, and the ways in which we package up our past,” says Sturtevant. “The way we write our own stories subconsciously and earlier life’s moments become these golden-hued parables from another more mysterious, more fanciful world.”

The Lost Estate, the first release on new Seattle imprint Plume Records, will be out on vinyl and digital formats on March 25th following a cassette release late last year on Never Anything Records. The album was recorded and mixed by Andy Meyer in Seattle and mastered for vinyl and digital by Carl Saff in Chicago.

Those Manic Seas tour dates

The first thing people tend to notice when Richmond, VA post-punk/dance-rock band Those Manic Seas takes the stage is their lead singer Kilroy — at 9 feet tall, plastic, with a closed-circuit television for a head, he makes for an arresting figure. But once the “four” piece starts playing, the front-mannequin quickly fades as the focal point of Those Manic Seas. Beyond Kilroy’s cold smooth vocals — which Windy City Times praised for “the glacial beauty of his baritone [that] telegraphed bewilderment, vulnerability and fear” — lies a talented trio of humans delivering wire-tight post-punk grooves.

Those Manic Seas, who have drawn comparisons to bands such as MuteMath, The Killers, Interpol, and Broken Social Scene, put a lot of effort into honing a tight and compelling live show. Kilroy, who took a year to create, isn’t the only aspect of their live show that the band built. “We built and run our own light show (which the drummer controls live during the show),” drummer Daniel Medley told RVA Mag. “I want to create an emotion. [I] want people to…go home with a story. We want our set to be a manic ride, and we want to force the audience to challenge their relationship with the band during live shows.”

The band — comprised of Daniel Medley (drums, sampling), Drew Rollo (guitar, synths), and Justin Jones (keys), in addition to the aforementioned Kilroy on vocals — are on tour to celebrate the recent release of their new single “Outlier,” which Sound of Confusion called “a big song designed for big stages,” while they prepare for the release of their debut full length album, co-produced by Darren King, drummer of New Orleans-based alt-rock band MUTEMATH. In addition to King, the band is working with John Moran at Richmond’s Sound of Music Recording Studios for the new album.

Copperfox to release 4-song EP “Haunts” on February 5th

Copperfox to release 4-song EP Haunts on February 5th

Copperfox, a dreamy indie/psych-pop quartet based in Nashville, began in Portland, OR as a duo comprised of guitarist Rory Mohon and singer Lisa Garcia. After releasing a couple of EPs that elicited RIYLs ranging from Neko Case and Band of Horses to The Head and the Heart and Mazzy Star, the pair moved to Nashville, continuing to develop a sound that featured haunting pop melodies over moody chord structures while welcoming new members Andrew Bottini (bass), and Stephanie Kincheloe (synth, guitar and background vocals). After a year together, they found themselves writing in an entirely different genre altogether, retaining the atmospheric sensibilities at the core of Copperfox but now relying heavily on synthesizers and drum machines, which were becoming a growing passion for songwriter Mohon.

“When we moved to Nashville and added members, our sound naturally changed. Where we once had pedal steel giving atmosphere to the songs, we now had synths and that alone was a huge shift in our sound,” says Mohon. “We decided to dig deep and push our sound — Lisa leans more towards atmospheric music, so the transition was not only natural for her, but intentional. It was important to her to have a cohesive sound that more accurately reflects us as musicians and artists.” The band emerged with their third EP (and first release from their new Nashville home), Haunts, full of spacious layers highlighted by Garcia’s chilling and evocative vocals and Mohon’s warm resplendent guitars.

Haunts emerged from a gradual progression of writing and ditching songs repeatedly. “My growing love for synthesizers helped me to look at songwriting from a different angle,” reveals Mohon. With Haunts, Copperfox incorporates new influences — the EP includes two original tracks, the desert-noir of “Warhorse” and the epically evocative “Feel in the Void,” remixed by their side project D’ark, which re-imagines the compositions filled with synths layered on top of drum machines pounding out slow tempoed beats. Both Copperfox and D’ark are driven by mesmerizing vocal melodies and wet guitar. Copperfox is the hero’s journey, while D’ark navigates through the void.

Haunts was mastered at Magic Garden Mastering by Grammy-winning engineer Brian Lucey (Black Keys, Beck, Arctic Monkeys), and will be available for digital download on February 5th, 2016.

There Is No Mountain to release sophomore album “Luna” (Org Music)

Portland, Oregon​’s​ There Is No Mountain, ​a married duo ​who specialize in complex psych-pop​ that draws comparisons to Dirty Projectors, Buke & Gase and Fleet Foxes, will release their sophomore full-length Luna on January 15th from Org Music on CD and digital formats.​

There Is No Mountain, comprised of drummer/vocalist Kali Giaritta and guitarist/vocalist Matt Harmon and named for the Donovan lyric ​(and the zen koan that inspired it​)​, approach songwriting like composition, starting with a simple song and developing more difficult arrangements, adding percussion and guitar effects. The pair, who played NYC’s Lincoln Center of the Performing Arts as part of last year’s American Songbook series, keep the complexity a layer beneath the surface​, primarily impacting audiences with their ​infectiousness and ​palpable chemistry, as they combine elements of Americana, folk, psychedelic rock and pop, classical and world music, and even occasionally metal.

​The band released a pair of 3-song EPs in 2015 comprised of tracks from the 12-song album Luna, entitled Sea of Storms and Sea of Islands. As guitarist Matt Harmon told Vortex Music Magazine, the new releases are named for several “seas” on the moon, with this record highlighting the couple’s stormiest songwriting to date. “We’re working with the moon theme because a lot of these songs deal with heavier, darker themes in our own lives, and we’ve spent a lot of time walking around at night, sharing a joint and gazing at the moon, drawing a sense of perspective and peace from it,” Harmon says.

Written while on the road, most of Luna’s songs evolved throughout the band’s travels. Playing over 250 shows in 40 states between 2012 and 2014, crashing with strangers met on, Giaritta and Harmon gathered a whirlwind one-city-per-day impression of the country while writing the album. Ultimately, Luna became a record of their own exploration of the highs and lows that come with the touring lifestyle. Starting with the second track “Sadness,” the band embraces the desire to “just ‘listen’ to moments of sadness, doubt, anger and anxiety,” and allow them to be honest reactions to the world, instead of attempting to cover them by putting on a fake smile and waiting for negative emotions to blow over.

Following “Sadness,” the album spirals downward, progressing through optimism, longing and questioning, finally hitting the emotional low point of “Black Hole (Part 1)” and “What If?” — two down-and-out examinations of fear and depression. Through indulging in this trip to the dark side, the album’s emotional pay-off comes in the form of the album closer “Song of Seikilos,” the duo’s take on a 2000-year-old mantra about living in the moment and letting grief go, acknowledging that, no matter what, time will erase everything they try to hold onto. “’Seikilos’ isn’t a white-washing of emotions,” says Harmon. “It’s a hard-won expression of peace in the middle of a storm that started with the album’s early determination to ‘listen to sadness.’”

The new music was recorded utilizing the band’s minimal live performance set-up, built around a live take of guitar and drums and incorporating their blend of effects pedals, a motley collection of toms and snares with dishtowels muting them and assorted hand percussion, piano and organ sounds, and two voices. The recording faithfully recreates the live touring arrangement, showcasing the band’s impressive fullness. Utilizing a similar set-up, There Is No Mountain played a well-received set at Volume Festival in Spokane, and Treefort Festival, where The Oregonian‘s David Greenwald called There Is No Mountain “the most unique act I saw.” Audiences often express surprise at the abundance of sound created from the duo’s acoustic guitar, minimal snare/floor tom/aux percussion setup, vocals and single keyboard, which they worked to capture accurately on Luna, recorded at Map Room Studios and the band’s own home studio with production, mixing and mastering by Matt Harmon and assistant production by Leigh Marble.​
