OTT – Twisted Records
Deep within the English countryside lie a number of brilliant music producers. One such unfashionable but extremely talented artist is Ott, best friend of Simon Posford aka Hallucinogen and previous editor of the Shpongle albums. Reclusive genius Ott is no stranger to the studio. He has for the last 20 years been producing arranging and recording some of the most famous artists including Sinead O’Connor, The Orb, and Brian Eno. Working in a wide range of the best studios in the land from SARM East and West, Real World, and Ridge Farm to Foel in Wales. He has been interviewed in the producers/engineers bible Sound on Sound and is currently managed by Strongroom Management UK. He continues to work with many famous artists and along his travels met up with master producer Simon Posford aka Hallucinogen, editing Shpongle. After hearing his studio skills Simon commissioned Ott to make the modern dub album ‘Hallucinogen In Dub’ as an antithesis to his own hurtling psy-trance music. The results are as you shall see, startling, a stunning example of modern dub and one that is sure to be massive with all dance music and ambient music fans across the globe. It’s a dub circus with flecks of the original souping in and out, and the effect is truly psychedelic. Spiritual Antiseptic uses the original’s cutup vocals with a more traditional dub arrangement – melodica, clattering drums, and reverb to hell and back. Twisting and turning, the way the main LSD melody surfaces is pure sonic poetry, and certainly gets those brain chemicals flowing. Finally Angelic Particles – with swirling vocals and sweet guitar (specially recorded by Simon Posford) creating a sort of timeless dub full of rich psychedelic harping back to Floyd, Gong and the Grateful Dead. This is an absolute triumph – it’s original, it’s brave, and the sounds are truly transporting making this a release that truly deserves the ‘psychedelic’ tag.
Some music, because of its originality, its timeliness, its mass appeal, or perhaps because it is just plain odd, will always be destined for the hallowed halls of cult classicism. No band fits this criteria better than our beloved Papadosio who, in just 3 years of existence, has wowed crowds from Denver to NYC, Cleveland to Atlanta, shaking the earth at festivals and clubs abroad. Papadosio’s music is all about unexpected combinations. From Rock/House to Jazz/Hop to Dub/Breaks and so on, every song has a unique approach to attaining originality. Long improvisational interludes and vocal harmonies quickly set this group in a new category of mass appeal. …with an amplified message of transcendence, unity, and universal understanding, Papadosio’s mission is clear: To combine eclectic musical traditions with modern Electronica to stir the heart and fuel the mind.
PHUTUREPRIMITIVE – TWISTED RECORDS
Phutureprimitive music is singular and unique in its approach: Lush melodies drift across intricate rhythms, groove heavy beats and warm, fuzzy bass lines. Often exploring a dark and dense palette, his music also manages to convey a sense of tranquility and beauty, engaging the listener into hypnotic movement and often escalating toward a full kinetic experience. Conceived and produced in a digital environment, his music manages to convey more humanity and organic warmth then typically found in an often cold and sterile genre. Shimmering with cinematic qualities, his music ultimately speaks to both the mind and the body. Despite electronic music’s tendency to suffer a short shelf life, Phutureprimitive has already demonstrated a timeless quality with his debut album release of “Sub Conscious” on Waveform Records, which still remains a top seller on the label since it’s release 2004, obtaining a cult status among fans and collectors. With a string of singles released in the interim on various labels, the birth of Native Harmonix (Rain’s own Record Label) brought us the “Luminous” EP in 2010; exploring a lyrical based production, supported by undulating synth work and a palpable haunting texture throughout. His second full-length release “Kinetik” pushes his sound into new territories of emotional electronic dance music, exploring a heavier, bass-centric sound that adds raw energy to the meticulously detailed tracks this trusted producer is so well known for.
Dopapod exists at the crossroads of full throttle intensity, deep pocket groove, intricate technicality, and limitless experimentation. With no regard towards towards stylistic boundaries, the sound that emerges from the quartet both live and in the studio is as varied and diverse as the many influences that they adapt from. Their approach and commitment to complementing a distinct genre bending sound to top-notch musicianship has set them apart from many of their contemporaries and keeps music lovers eagerly returning to shows. In the past two years, Dopapod has firmly planted seeds in music fan’s ears all up and down the East Coast and into the Midwest with their incessant touring schedule. Covering all this ground has seen the young, yet seasoned group make appearances at numerous festivals including Camp Bisco, Mountain Jam, Bonnaroo, Burning Man, Bear Creek, The Big Up, Rootwire, Strangecreek, Heads In Harmony and more. Their electric live showcase has been cultivating a fast growing, loyal fan base, and seen them share bills with artists such as Lotus, EOTO, John Medeski & Billy Martin, Papadosio, Zach Deputy, Brothers Past, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, Spam Allstars, Sam Kininger (Lettuce, Soulive), and Carl Palmer (Emerson, Lake, & Palmer).
Proud to be firmly installed in 2012′s new-funk movement, KUNG FU is quickly popularizing their unique sonic contribution, blurring the line between intense electro-fusion, and blistering dance arrangements. Making fusion music “cool” again, the band draws on influences such as early Headhunters and Weather Report, and merges those ideas with a contemporary EDM informed sensibility. Imagine 70′s funk-fusion meets a modern dance party! Although the ensemble cast enjoys a seasoned pedigree that reads like a late-night summer festival all-star jam, this fledgling “nu-sion” project is growing a unique and rabid following by commanding audiences at theaters, clubs, and major national festivals, all within the past 18 months. Kung Fu features Tim Palmieri (guitar), Robert Somerville (tenor sax), Todd Stoops (keyboards), David Livolsi (bass guitar), and Adrian Tramontano (drums/percussion). Currently touring in support of the July, 2011 release of their eponymous debut album, the powerhouse quintet’s live show has been described by critics and fans alike as “lethal funk”, “explosive”, “jaw dropping”, and “musically mesmerizing”. For the uninitiated, the experience is typically shocking yet the focus is simple: ENTER THE DRAGON!
It was nearly 10 years ago that the four members of The Brew, then high school students, first created music together. It wasn’t long before collaborations became songs, jams became rehearsals, and dreams were realized as the group began producing their own shows in local venues; First for friends, and then for the people that the word had spread to. It seems that all the years of rehearsal, and the one thousand-plus shows performed, have brought The Brew to a tipping point where the single album format could not encompass the bands diverse material. In 2011, The Brew’s core influences, family of fans and musical colleagues is intact and growing. The three-album project known as Triptych is a distillation of the experience of four kids over a decade in the business of rock and roll. The first of the three albums, “A Garden in the Snow,” represents the band in its purest form. The self-produced, impressionistic, indie-rock album explores the possibilities of song craft without restrictions. “Light From Below,” the heaviest component of the project, expresses The Brew’s unconditional commitment to live music and improvisational rock. The starkly up-tempo rendition of Led Zeppelin’s “Going to California” illustrates the band’s ability to respect a legendary song while making it their own. Last, though certainly not least, The Brew’s “Hard Enough to Break” displays the band’s obsession with the golden age of radio. Concise and sprawling arrangements pay tribute to the pop form, but still with The Brew’s attention to honest music. Together, these 3 albums create the Triptych experience. Enter this gallery of a decade of influence and inspiration created by The Brew. Available now on The Brew’s official website www.thebrew.biz
THE BREAKFAST (2 SETS)
The Breakfast is a hard-hitting jazz rock experimental quartet whose music ranges from progressive rock to sonic landscapes. Since the group’s inception 11 years ago the band has played over 1000 shows throughout the country, released 6 albums and is on the verge of releasing a 7th. The Breakfast’s sound and energy are founded in the psychedelic but their music features some incredibly well-crafted song structures and melodies, showing the members’ gifts as highly talented musicians. Indeed, original members Tim Palmieri (guitar) and Adrian Tromantano (drums) provide the distinguishing characteristics the band has thrived on from the beginning. The two are able to reach near-telepathic communication on stage, ripping through progressive shredding licks and jams without missing a beat. This is held together by the sonic glue of longtime, though newly re-added, keyboardist Jordan Giangreco, and supported from beneath by the jazz sensibilities of bassist Chris DeAngelis. In 2003/2004 The Breakfast accepted their first Jammy award for Best Emerging Artist at The Madison Square Garden Theater along with Phil Lesh, Dr John and other distinguished honorees. In its long career the band has performed with other music greats such as The Wailers, moe, Mike Gordon, Umphrey’s McGee, Disco Biscuits, Robby Krieger (The Doors), Garaj Mahal, Soulive, Lettuce, Tea Leaf Green and Particle. Their intense touring schedule has featured appearances at such notable music festivals as 10,000 Lakes Festival (twice), moe.down, Gathering of the Vibes, Camp Bisco, and High Sierra, among others. Rejuvenated by the recent re-addition of original member Jordan Giangreco on keys, these four virtuosos continue to turn heads with each show. Together they rage forward with renewed mission and commitment to solid performances for passionate and dedicated fans everywhere. The group celebrates the upcoming September 12th release of its highly anticipated second live album Live As Is, which chronicles The Breakfast’s epic performance at The Field in Bridgeport, CT on February 28th, 2009. Breakfast is served…
ROOTS OF CREATION
“RoC is more than ‘just’ a Reggae band… they cover anything…(dubbed out, of course) and can as easily break into a dance-hall strut splattered w/ electronic slurs…ranging from political-themed righteousness to the sweet, sexy, and downright dirty… a festival staple!” -Jeff Wallace
JANOVER & RESUNATOR
Jamie Janover is recognized as a true innovator. His considerable creative output includes: being a master of the ancient percussion stringed instrument called the hammered dulcimer, inventing and performing on an instrument he calls the “mini-kit” (a miniature amplified drum kit), playing pyrocussion (fire drums) and creating the RealmsMobile (a recumbent tricycle with the mini-kit attached, enabling him to ride and play drums simultaneously). By combining recent innovations in modern technology with the wisdom of ancient instruments, Janover achieves a balance between the electronic and the acoustic to create a unified field: music reflective of the nature of modern times. For many years Janover has maintained a rigorous international touring schedule with several acts including: PRAANG (w/ EOTO & Steve Kimock), ZILLA (w/ Michael Travis from SCI and VibeSquaD), LYNX & Janover and the Everyone Orchestra (w/ a revolving lineup). Jamie is also a veteran of hundreds of collaborations and guest appearances, having performed on stage with artists including Phish, Bela Fleck, The String Cheese Incident, G. Love & Special Sauce, Umphrey’s McGee, Keller Williams, Beats Antique, Stanley Jordan and many others. In the past 2 years alone Janover has performed at over 50 festivals in countries as diverse as Japan, New Zealand, Portugal, Australia, Indonesia, Canada & the USA and is currently touring solo, performing electroacoustic live PA set style shows using his unique live rig which includes hammered dulcimer, laptop computer, mini-kit, sampler, sitar, electric kalimba, midi controllers and percussion. When not playing music, you can find Janover connecting dots around the world in his extensive travels and collaborations in multiple creative realms including creating stunning images as a professional photographer and making sculpture works using natural found objects. Janover’s life-long interest in the true nature of reality and the universe brought him to become an official emissary for scientist Nassim Haramein of the Resonance Project, delivering fascinating presentations on the physics of unified field theory. Jamie Janover also produces music events including an annual electronic music festival in Colorado called SONIC BLOOM.
CONSIDER THE SOURCE
Three Musicians converging on an epic plateau of sound and reflex. Three conscious minds communicating on sub-conscious levels. New York City’s CONSIDER THE SOURCE is the fourth voice, produced when the trio’s three distinct personalities combine forces to share their inner music freely with each other. Toting the loaded description Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Funk, their sound is a melting pot of Middle Eastern scales, psychedelic jams, and a hard rocking rhythm section. Featuring Gabriel Marin on Fret-Less Double Neck Guitar, John Ferrara on Bass, and Louis Miller on Drums/Percussion, the three musicians cite their influences as including The Bad Plus, The Mahavishnu Orchestra, King Crimson and Tool—but a major source of their musical power can be attributed to a trip the band took to India, where they studied the complex tala (rhythm) of North India, and the micro-tonal scale structure and melodic ornamentations of South India.
Rustic Overtones formed in Portland, ME, hometown to each of them. Current members of this seven-piece outfit are guitarist and lead vocalist Dave Gutter, drummer Gary Gemitti, trombonist Dave Noyes, baritone saxophonist Jason Ward, bassist Jon Roods, alto saxophonist Ryan Zoidis, and Mike Taylor on keyboards and vocals. Roods and Gutter began performing together first, in a family basement. They later a…dded the rest of the group, all friends from high school, and became what is Rustic Overtones. Local gigs earned them a fan base that expanded as the band began to travel, appearing at close to 200 shows some years. Rustic Overtones’ “The New Way Out” is the first album of entirely brand new music from the band in over eight years. Recorded in their own makeshift studio between November of 2007 and September of 2009 it’s the bands fifth full length studio LP and first without longtime keyboard player Spencer Albee who left the group shortly after production began to form Spencer and the School Spirit Mafia. He was replaced during the writing and recording of the record by Nigel Hall (Soulive, Lettuce, Robert Randolph) who handles the keyboard duties on TNWO.
Fueled by their passion to explore beyond the edges of traditional musical boundaries and their diverse ethnic and musical backgrounds, the Alchemystics blend reggae, politically infused hip-hop, gritty soul, hard-driving rock, and pulsing Jamaican, Cuban and Trinidadian rhythms into an utterly unique and distinctively original new sound. The result is modern-day roots music with global appeal – an alchemy of ancient musical traditions; intricate, intelligent wordplay; elementally raw soul; irresistible hooks; deep, driving rhythms; and old-school vocal harmonies – fired by the Alchemystic’s unique blend of intensity, passion, and sheer artistic chemistry into a powerful, contemporary, and unmistakable sound. Formed by producers, and rhythmic earth shakers Demse Zullo (drums & percussion) & Garrett Sawyer (bass) in early 2003, the Alchemystics under their musical direction have grown into an eclectic lineup of talented musicians combining the inspired, masterful vocals of Ras Jahn and Ian-I, the smooth and socially conscious lyricism of Force, the Afro-Caribbean infused percussion of Matthew King, and the cosmic keyboards of Jay Metcalf. Together, The Alchemystics have catalyzed into an original, unstoppable musical force. Their high-energy, fiercely danceable live shows, have gained the band a passionately loyal multi-cultural, multi-generational following throughout New England, and beyond. The Alchemystics have shared stages with a global array of music luminaries such as Stephen Marley, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Clipse, Damian Marley, The Abyssinians, Sister Carol, The Coup, Inner circle, Busta Rhymes, Yellow Man, Burning Spear, Gil Scott Heron, Culture, Steel Pulse, Angelique Kidjo, Mighty Sparrow, The Brazilian Girls, Israel Vibrations, The English Beat, Midnite, King Sunny Ade and Taj Mahal among many others. The Alchemystics firmly embrace the philosophy that music and art are tools for propelling social change in our communities, and that the future of music and the planet necessitates bringing people of diverse backgrounds together to create conscious community. Individually and collectively, the members of the Alchemystics prioritize giving back to their local community, working closely with local youth groups and lending their musical talents when called upon. Individually and as a group, Alchemystics members regularly guest lecture, teach, and perform at schools and colleges throughout the Northeast.
Club d’Elf plays a style of music that has been called “Moroccan-dosed dub-trance-jazz”, and draws upon electronica, Moroccan Gnawa music, free jazz, hip-hop & funk to create a heady, danceable mix. Based in Boston (and recipient of the 2007 Boston Music Award for Outstanding Jazz Act) & lead by bassist Mike Rivard, the group features a rotating ensemble with special guests, which over the years have included John Medeski & Billy Martin (MMW), DJ Logic, Skerik, Marc Ribot, and many others. Each performance is unique, with a different set of players and different “mixes” of the tunes, with an emphasis on spontaneous improvisation. A residency at Cambridge’s Lizard Lounge has been ongoing since ’98, and while performing primarily in the Northeast US D’Elf has managed to tour Japan five times, most recently in December 2010 w/ Medeski. The group has broadened its scope from the jazz and jam band and rave scenes in which it began, to also include more cross-cultural events such as the Mimouna festival (a North African-Jewish tradition). D’Elf is comfortable playing in wildly varying settings, with audiences ranging from fire-juggling Burners, to the predominantly Muslim audience which embraced the band’s take on Moroccan folk music at the 2007 edition of the Festvial Du Monde de Arabe in Montreal, where they performed songs by beloved Moroccan band Nass El Ghiwane and Berber musician Hadj Belaid. Having developed a unique sound over the 13 years of its existence, the band’s music is nonetheless sometimes compared to On The Corner-era Miles Davis meets Moroccan Berber music with a heaping dose of Squarepusher. The band just released it’s tenth CD – Electric Moroccoland/So Below, which garnered the band rave reviews from Relix magazine amongst other press, and were featured on PRI’s The World and Voice Of America. The 2-CD set represents two distinct sides of the groups sound: Moroccan trance and funky electronica/DJ-driven beats, and features over 26 musicians including Hassan Hakmoun, the late Mark Sandman (Morphine), Medeski, DJ Logic and many more.
ROYAL HAMMER feat. RYAN ZOIDIS (LETTUCE, SOULIVE & RUSTIC OVERTONES!)
The Royal Hammer is a six-piece roots reggae group from Portland, Maine. Heavily influenced by Gregory Isaacs, Sugar Minott, Dennis Brown, and Roots Radics, Royal Hammer takes pride in the authenticity of their sound. Mike Taylor (The Awesome) is backed-up by a heavy rhythm section including Gary Gemetti (Grupo Esperanza, Fogcutters Big Band, Rustic Overtones) on drums, Mike Effenberger (Grupo Esperanza, Tan Vampires) on keys, and bass player Stu Mahan (Zach Jones band, The Awesome, Billy Libby), and with Ryan Zoidis (Rustic Overtones, Soulive, Lettuce) on sax and Dave Noyes (Rustic Overtones, The Plains, Seekonk) on trombone, Royal Hammer’s grooves are deep and infectious. The Royal Hammer has shared the stage with reggae legends Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and Barrington Levy and has backed up international reggae artist Marty Dread and are currently working on their debut album.

LEGION OF JERRY
Legion of Jerry is a Connecticut based band, playing the music of Jerry Garcia, The Jerry Garcia Band, and the vast extended catalog of music that includes. Jordan Giangreco of The Breakfast and Viral Sound along with Jeff Martinson of Shakedown are just 2 of the amazing musicians you will see! It is born of the desire of a few like minded and like hearted musicians. We LOVE the Jerry Garcia Band and the material Jerry chose to tackle in that band. The songs are just too good not to be played. We do it out of a passion for the material to still live and breathe.
Educated Advocates; an energized and animated hip-hop trio from the state of Maine have emerged with a style that has been described as “new vintage”. This sound is a mixture of innovative rhymes, vocal arrangements and golden era production styles. With the majority of beats, recording, and scratches handled by the group themselves, they have formulated a trademark sound reminiscent of the classic era of hip-hop in aspects, with a fresh perspective. The seeds for the formation of this trio were planted over 5 years ago, as each of the artist had worked together periodically creating songs and performing live at shows. In june of 2009 during a weekend recording session, It became evident their chemistry in the studio was something that could not be ignored. A week and a half and 8 songs later, they performed live for the first time as educated advocates. over the following months, with an abundance of live shows under their belt, EA developed their bread and butter; a high intensity performance which incorporates all elements of their work in the studio brought to life on stage. Late summer ’09 marked the release of their self made EP which was sold hand to hand. The project was extremely well received gaining college radio plays through out new england and opening doors of opportunity on their path of progression. At the moment the group is preparing their next release titled “in sessions…” A collection of material written produced and recorded during their starting stages tied together with some new elements. And with a third project near completion, as well as solo projects from each member on the horizon, this will surely prove be a promising year for this talented group of hip-hop enthusiasts. -kurt melkis

lespecial’s sound was once described as a bus carrying Les Claypool’s band crashing into J-Dilla’s studio, and others have pulled names like Radiohead and Medeski Martin and Wood in an attempt to pin down this trio’s unique sound. No matter which of their myriad influences you choose to compare them too, the unavoidable fact is that lespecial is attempting to tap into a raw and primitive rhythmic interlock to create a universally accesible groove that gets people on their feet and into the street. lespecial has played a heroic amount of live shows given their young age, and have shared the stage with acts like Bob Marley’s the Wailers, Dead Prez, George Clinton, RAQ, Fishbone, the Breakfast, the Wood Brothers, Hot Buttered Rum, Max Creek, Ryan Montbleau, and even performed with members of Medeski Martin and Wood and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

BIG OL’ DIRTY BUCKET
Described as “Parliament-Funkadelic meets Aretha Franklin at a Jay-Z concert”, Big Ol’ Dirty Bucket entertains with an energetic and engaging stage show that whips the dance floor into a frenzy and leaves every audience member sweaty and screaming for more. The band’s sonic elements pay homage to its influences — 70’s Funk and Soul music spiced with touches of Latin rhythms and seasoned with a touch of Hip Hop — creating a uniquely funky and fresh listening experience. The 11-piece band complements its seamlessly tight hooks and dance grooves with bouts of over-the-top musicianship, and the result is a sound and performance that is musically intricate and complex yet accessible to even the most casual music fan. Fueled by a propulsive rhythm section and led by the powerhouse vocals of front woman Sarah “Lil’ Shrimp” Seminski, Big Ol’ Dirty Bucket surged onto the local Boston music scene in May 2010 with its inaugural appearance in front of a sold-out downstairs crowd at The Middle East. A cascade of well-attended Boston Area appearances followed the performance over the next year, including an appearance on the main stage of the 21st Annual Boston Freedom Rally alongside chart-topping acts such as Tracy Bonham and Onyx. BODB’s inescapable live energy launched the band into first place in the Wormtown Trading Co. “Battle of the Bands” in the winter of 2011, consequently earning them a midnight Saturday night set at the Strange Creek Music and Art Festival alongside jam band and folk rock legends Max Creek and Strangefolk. Since then, Big Ol’ Dirty Bucket has been scheduled to appear on the stages of other festivals including Harry Brown’s Green Love Festival, the Wormtown Music Festival, Harry’s Harvest Ball, Uphoria Music Festival, and others.

“Their sound is exhilarating, with flurries of melodic guitars and wailing harp propelling complex improvisations.” -Relix “Their music wails, whispers and directs our thoughts to the deeper mysteries of life.” -Americana UK Released on June 24, 2011, Blue Light City– the third full length studio recording from progressive rock band Turbine– debuted at #3 in the Relix / Jambands.com and Homegrown Music radio charts and has raised the bar for the band and—possibly, in terms of studio recordings, for the broader jam rock community as a whole. Produced by Grammy-winner John Davis (The Black Keys), Blue Light City evokes the smart groove-pop of ’80’s bands like INXS and XTC, the psychedelic rock of Flaming Lips and Pink Floyd, the soul-rock ofJimi Hendrix’s Band of Gypsies, aspects of prog-rock pioneers Yes and King Crimson and even elements of late 70′s era Grateful Dead, all in one strangely cohesive record. These diverse influences would typically clash and burn, but Turbine’s singular vision combines them in a way that makes it all simply sound like Turbine. The overarching sonic identity of this New York City-based quartet was forged over the last five years, starting when it was a tenacious duo comprised of guitarist / singer and primary songwriter Jeremy Hilliard and harmonicist / rhythm guitarist / singer-songwriter Ryan Rightmire. As a duo, Turbine started to experiment in odd time signatures and unorthodox compositional structures as they crafted songs that were both accessible and upbeat, despite their remarkable complexity and musical sophistication. After a few years of this, they realized they needed a rhythm section, brought on bassist Justin Kimmel and drummer Octavio Salman, and debuted the new band on a national tour at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, 10,000 Lakes Festival, Wakarusa and Gathering Of The Vibes. They then returned to the northeast to resume the arduous process of building their regional fan base as a full band. Turbine now stands poised to emerge as one of the most forward thinking, musically ambitious bands in their loosely defined scene. With the rhythm section, Rightmire was able to realize his futuristic vision for the harmonica, which he plays with a neck sling, all the while playing guitar and singing harmonies and leads. Effects and technology have transformed his instrument’s traditional role: the keyboards, turntablism, strings and other odd sounds that the compositions call for are delivered by this Hohner-endorsed pioneer of the harp’s future. It is common for people stumbling into a Turbine show to be amazed by the spectacle of Rightmire, but as they start to absorb what is going on around them, listeners begin to appreciate the passion and intelligence of Hilliard’s vocals and lyrics, then find themselves impressed with his intense, fiery guitar work. Underpinning all of this, Kimmel’s bass lines help define and punctuate the music, setting-up and pushing grooves forward, driving the bus from the low end in typical prog-rock fashion, while leaving enough room for the nuance of the song structures and the dynamics of Salman’s percussive backbeat to shine through.

COSMIC DUST BUNNIES
Cosmic Dust Bunnies began their interstellar journey in 2006. Originally coming together for the purpose of improvisational exploration, they slowly began to develop a sound and style that would soon evolve into the identity they embrace today. During CDB’s musical exploration the band quickly took to song writing and began fine-tuning their live performances. These ever-evolving live performances have lead to sellouts at some of Connecticut, Rhode Island, and New York’s most well respected venues. In addition to their electronic jams, CDB layers influences from Reggae, Dub, Funk, Rock, Pop, and everything in between to form an intimate bond with the audience. CDB’s rhythm section is comprised of Matt Beckett’s funky bass chops and Eric Hyland’s precise timing on the acoustic and electric drums. In addition, Matt Dempsey rips smooth and tasteful guitar licks while Chris Sellas blends in keys/synthesizers to complete their truly unique sound. After a short hiatus in 2009 CDB has returned to the stage with incredible new originals and a self-titled EP. Fans from across the galaxy have traveled far and wide to experience the Cosmic Dust Bunnies and have been showing exponential growth in the last 2 years.
There’s a new sound taking over the town known as Boston. If you’re by the banks of the Charles River as the moon glows over the muddy waters you very well may hear some thick, groovy beats banging out a trail for raw guitar licks and a soul-drenched Hammond organ. Yes indeed, ladies and gentleman who are down with the funk, it’s time to get rocked by your new favorite band: Otis Grove. Otis Grove began as a collective experiment in crossing the traditional organ jazz sound with funk, hip-hop, and rock tones. It was the beginning of a sonic realization based in groove and free in improvisation, yet rooted in songwriting and melodic structure. In early 2004, on the heels of their self-titled debut album, the band began spreading their sound to clubs around the New England area. The music, which has since evolved into a unique blend of aggressive rock n’ roll and high-intensity organ funk (some fans have dubbed their genre ‘Runk’- a mixture of rock and funk), pays tribute to the masters while consistently pushing itself in new directions. It’s as if jazz organ legend Jimmy Smith had been the fifth member of Led Zeppelin, or if the Meters had joined forces with Black Sabbath. Performer Magazine writer Sam Merrick described it best as “a monstrous funk groove that probably would have sent Godzilla running had he been in the neighborhood.” This larger-than-life sound is crafted by three talented musicians, Sam Gilman plays a plethora of instruments in Otis Grove, including Hammond organ, Wurlitzer electric piano, Moog synthesizer, clavinet, Rhodes piano, and mellotron. He’s a piano technician at Berklee College of Music so he’s constantly being exposed to new techniques and approaches. This could explain why the band has such sonic diversity. Tyler Wayne Drabick plays the electric and acoustic guitar for the band, but that’s not his only contribution to Otis Grove’s sound. Because he owns and operates a Hammond Organ repair shop in Boston, he was able to customize the band’s organ and Leslie speaker to achieve more gain and overdrive, as well as chest-pounding deep bass tones which the band describes as “Booty Bass.” Last, but not least, Blake Goedde lays down the backbone of Otis Grove’s sound on drums and percussion. Having studied with James Brown’s drummer Kenwood Dennard, as well as spent countless hours transcribing hip-hop, jazz, funk, rock, and reggae beats, he has come to develop his own intricately funky style.
Supersillyus is an electronic musician and producer based in Allston, MA. His music is a genre-bending adventure through psychedelic IDM and dub and he has recently shared the stage with acts like Hallucinogen, Ott, Conspirator, Eoto, Phutureprimative, and Tipper. His first full length release, Grampaspaceshuttle, tickled the ears of the electronic community, earning him a spot on LostinSound.org’s Top 5 Newcomer Albums of 2010. He spent over a year meticulously crafting his second record Tesselations, which was released through Base Trip Records. With this epic double album, Supersillyus allows listeners to explore highly evolved and extensively layered soundscapes, while shaking their asses to a tasty mix of tribal drums, swirling synths, and the occasional marimba solo.Tesselations takes the listener on a journey past boundaries of IDM, world beat, and dub, making use of traditions as old as Sanskrit chants or a child’s Saxaboom.
Pipeline Riot is a Fusion of multiple styles of music including Rock, Reggae, Funk, Latin, and Jazz that focuses on playing eclectic thought provoking music. It sounds like funky droning worldliness from a primitive society on the brink of a technical revolution. The four play and write together with the overall goal of sonically transcribing their thoughts, troubles, triumphs, and convictions all the while using that very same music to forget them. Since the Riot broke out they have performed tirelessly in the New England area bringing their very unique sound to parties, bars, venues and festivals. They released their debut album “A Reel Long Time” on May 7th 2011 to a sold out crowd at club Church in Boston. They have performed at festivals such as Ziontific Music festival VT 2011-12, Uphoria ME 2011-12, Camp Coldbrook MA2011-12, Fitchberg Music Fest MA, North Country Swamp Jam NY, Harvestfest II ME as well as being the house band for two Pepperell MA Skydive Boogies.

Homegrown 5-Piece band from Bridgewater, MA. Members from both FIRING SQUAD and LAW ONE combined to create organic, ever-morphing music, sure to please the soul.
Imagine you’re back in time enjoying the groove and virtuosity of 70’s art-rock band, then hurled decades forward, colliding with the energy and intensity of today’s indie rock scene. There’s unexpectedly powerful jazzy female vocals intertwined with a strong, satin-smooth male voice. Thumping synth basslines and popping, funky drumbeats drive the skillfully intricate guitar playing and explosions of electric violin string-shredding. Reflecting their influences of past and present (including Frank Zappa, Led Zeppelin, the Talking Heads, Arcade Fire, and the White Stripes), the StereoFidelics avoid performing with loops, computers, and digital effects in favor of the more organic approach of using Moog Taurus pedals, scat vocal solos, and multi-instrumentalism. You see, the fast-fingered guitar player (Chris Padgett) keeps the basslines pounding through a one-octave floor keyboard, the tiny female vocalist (Melissa McGinley) is also the drummer; he sings too, and she plays violin. They perform with a natural passion and synchronicity that not only dispels any association with the herky-jerky one-man-band cliché, but post-performance, leaves their audience sympathetically exhausted and dripping with sweat. Known for booking their own tours, designing album covers, screen printing tour t-shirts, and even making some of their onstage clothing, the StereoFidelics are a do-all whirlwind of creative energy. Relentless touring of the US and calling their van home for much of the time (performing around 225 shows per year) has gained the StereoFidelics a dedicated following around the country. Their recent studio release, You Are Having a Wonderful Time, receives solid airplay from college and community radio stations coast-to-coast. The StereoFidelics have performed at clubs and festivals with Steely Dan, Future Man, Donna the Buffalo, Rubblebucket, That 1 Guy, and Jackyl among others.
ELECTRONICAnonymous is the EDM brain-child of Jules Jenssen. 1/3 of underground dance-fusion power trio HiGHER ORGANiX, Jules has been playing music since he was 6 years old, first dabbling in piano, then embracing the drums as his musical voice. Heavily rooted in traditional band style rock/ funk music, (Floyd, Hendrix, Zeppelin, Phish, all his father’s bands, etc..) Jules found electronic music as a pre-teen and immediately was drawn to carefully sculpted, evolving beats, throbbing bass, and euphoric synthetic sound design. Although he didn’t start making electronic music for years, he continued to integrate the theory into his drumming and live band. In the summer of 2008, Jules dove head first into the world of EDM production and nocturnal sleep cycles, making everything from electro-house, to dubstep, to krunk – -& styles yet-unnamed. Having already headlined shows including Music Ecology @ Wonderbar Boston, played festivals such as Camp Bisco, Desiderata, and the Big Up, shared the stage with OTT, Lotus, Conspirator, MiMOSA, Michal Menert, Sub Swara, Bluetech, King Britt, Dub War NYC and Psylab, to name a few, AND placed in the International top 8 of the Untz.com’s producer competition- the anonymous might not be unknown for long…

With a focus on live improvisation, set list variety, and musical exploration — every show is different from the last, truly making The Jauntee a live act to see again and again.

Truly a musical revolution for this generation, Mystery Fyre brings psychedelic classic-rock back to the music scene.

As a band of three brothers, Jake Knorr (vocals, bass), Wes Knorr (guitar), and Joey Knorr (drums) continue to daze and amaze audiences both young and true to the music. It’s no wonder anyone with a good ear can agree the Knorr brothers are on a trip to something big. Having influences from the late 60s era of revolutionary music has helped Mystery Fyre create a sound both familiar and foreign.

They now look to lead a long overdue musical revolution through the grapevine of great American rock and roll.

THE ROMANO PROJECT
It is nothing short of exciting when young musical groups showcase an eager ‘go get ‘em’ attitude towards making their way in the industry. The zealous nature of the boys from The Romano Project are just that. Infectious, unassumingly innocent with the potential for major growth. The Romano Project is just a wee little musical seedling from Lawrence, Massachusetts that has its eyes set on the big sun of success. Spearheaded by guitarist/songwriter Eddie Romano, this musical configuration came after the demise of his previous band The Change Up. With the help of drummer John Elliot and lead guitarist Chris Tallon, Eddie completes the instrumental triangle that is the core of this mellow rock n’ roll band. It appears that while playing live shows they have added to their line up live turntablist Tim Dunning and bass player Steve Gofstein. They just recently released their ‘Where’s The Love?’ 5 song EP which is a small teaser for their full length album that is stated to be released sometime later this year. This EP contains songs titled ‘Lottery’, ‘For No One’, ‘Round and Round’ plus the title track ‘Where’s The Love’. Each song is a solid progression of rolling guitar riffs, easy going drum kicks and slightly overly produced vocals. Most of the songs follow a mellow trajectory of jams that are perfect for the summer festival circuit with the only sound diversion being an overly forced reggae influence on ‘Where’s The Love’. Nonetheless these songs are impressively perfect for dancing in the fields during hot summer days. The Romano Project are definitely busy for the 2011 Summer season. Their site has their tour schedule hitting many of the bigger local festivals in the Northeast which is great for exposure and further development of their simply fun sound. I am excited to see what The Romano Project gives us in their full length album, with a sincere hope that they steer clear of the overly produced reggae sound and just have fun jamming out. Bring back the relaxing times of early jam bands. I know we are all ready. – SHAKEFIST MAGAZINE
