the band ICE CREAM
the band ICE CREAM
Dairy Rock/Melting Pop. Give me ice cream, or give me death. The Band Ice Cream from San Francisco, CA plays relatable garage rock songs for the damned. They come to you in frequencies and resonate with your loins. Your children will like them on summer nights. Your mother will love them on sale at Costco. Their latest album, Classically Trained, is a melting pot of dirty, fuzzy, slightly stupid rock n’ roll that producer Bruce Botnick put his own personal flourishes on. Singles like "Wild", "Surfer Girl" and "Sick Over U" have landed them opening shows and festivals for the likes of Hinds, Sunflower Bean, Black Pistol Fire, Night Beats, Tijuana Panthers and more.

Candace
Candace (fka Is/Is) infuses their music with a sense of mystery and brooding atmosphere. Psychedelic and shoegaze influences emerge throughout the catalogue: the atmospheric tones of early Verve, a droning pulse reminiscent of Loop. Some songs bounce gleefully forward with a pop sensibility, while some keep a cool distance and move with a language distinctly their own.

Candace began as Is/Is in late summer of 2009 with Sarah Rose, Sarah Nienaber, and Mara Appel DesLauriers. The early days brought about “This Happening” EP (2010) and the “Vowel Movements/Blackest Beat” 7” (2011). Mara moved cross-country to Portland, OR, and in 2012 the band released their debut full-length LP “III,” so named for the three drummers who played on the album. The two years following found the band cycling through drummers, with every lineup feeling more like an approximation of what the band was supposed to be, and never what it was. “Is/Is" (Manimal Vinyl, 2014) would be the last to feature any drummer but Mara. During the coldest and darkest Minnesota winter that nobody wants to remember, Sarah and Sarah recorded the wistful, ethereal bedroom-pop tape “Shadow Days” (Moon Glyph, 2015). The following spring, they also moved to Portland OR.

The reunion was nothing short of propulsive. In the spring of 2015 the band spent a week at Jackpot! Recording Studio with longtime friend and co-producer, Neil Weir of The Old Blackberry Way. The following fall, three of those songs were self-released on a limited-edition cassette, “Return to Zero,” coinciding with a West Coast tour and brief stint opening up for King Khan & The BBQ Show.

2016 brought about another transition, as necessary as any. On the surface, it’s an update of a moniker. But beneath the surface, the band’s maturation has been constant. Sarah, Sarah, and Mara are ready to debut Candace. “New Future” is out now on Found Object Records.
Plutinos
Plutinos
Plutinos is the solo effort of Nate Barnes, formerly of the band Rose Hill Drive and drummer for artists such as Mary Chapin Carpenter and Ryan Bingham. After years spent making records and touring with other artists, Nate decided to venture into uncharted waters and to dive deep into writing his own meaningful songs and creating the sound and music he always wanted to hear and play. The result is equal parts dreamy and heavy with emphasis on driving rhythms and vibey, melodic guitars and vocals.
Quiet Oaks
Quiet Oaks
Quiet Oaks is an American indie rock band from Salt Lake City, UT. Consisting of members Dane Sandberg (vocals, guitar), Spencer Sayer (drums), Jon Butler (guitar), and Mike Moon (bass).

“One of the most electric performances from a Utah band that I'd ever seen: a truly feral frontman, big guitar solos, infectious hooks that channeled Thin Lizzy-esque classic rock, glam rock and early 2000s New York rock in equal measure” – The Daily Herald

“They’ve gigged prolifically ever since, adding to their already considerable fan base. The hard-hitting, whiskey spilling sound of Quiet Oaks is carried by front man, Dane Sandberg, who fills the stage with his relentless energy and wide vocal range.” – City Weekly

“And just like that, Quiet Oaks explode with their debut LP. They have created an album that focuses on their strengths, curating something that many bands don’t get right on their first full-length go-around” – Slug Magazine
