Oh Pep! 10.18.18

Posted by on Oct 19, 2018

Pepita Emmerichs and Olivia Hally first met while they both attended a performing arts school in Melbourne and remarkably–the rest is history. With Pepita on mandolin/violin and Olivia on guitar, the two quickly discovered their strong musical chemistry shortly after meeting. Soon after they decided to come together as the indie-pop duo, Oh Pep!, they accomplished their biggest dream of playing at the Glastonbury Festival, while touring their 2016’s album, Stadium Cake. 

Their second studio album is set to be released on October 26th of this year. Pepita describes the new album titled, I Wasn’t Only Thinking About You, as one that is darker than anything that they have ever played before. The album embodies the personal growth that the two went through as they inevitably grew wiser while touring the world together. The album is rooted in melodic folk themes and an indie-pop sound that has an infectious likeability. Oh Pep! came into Studio 1A and played a few songs off of the new album. You can hear them along with the full studio session below!

Active Bird Community 10.16.18

Posted by on Oct 18, 2018

Brooklyn based band Active Bird Community (ABC), was formed in 2005. Tom D’Agustino (guitar/lead vocals), Zach Slater (bass) and Andrew Wolfson (guitar/lead vocals) were in middle school when they first came together to create the band. They would later add Quinn McGovern (drums) to their dynamic, and began solidifying their roles and experimenting with their sound–capitalizing on elements of nostalgic indie rock straight from the nineties. Their music borrows from a pop punk narrative that lends itself to harmonic elements, crafting the perfect combination for simultaneous head-bobbing and infectious slacker vibes.

Their arrangements and lyricism throughout the band’s discography organically reflects their personal experiences of growing up in New York, and the charm and discord that comes from heartbreak, tensions, and overall growth. ABC recently released their third full-length album titled, “Amends” with Barsuk Records and are in the middle of a tour around the country. Active Bird Community came by Studio 1A and played three songs off of the latest album. You can hear all of that and more down below!

Gabriel Garzón-Montano 09.27.18

Born in Brooklyn as a first-generation American, Gabriel Garzón-Montano’s musical style is an alluring culmination of his French and Colombian identity. His aesthetic borrows from classical Bach compositions to lively cumbia roots–often topped off with a revived funk sound. Montano does not hesitate to fuse multiple dimensions of instrumentalism, including the tracking of drums, bass, guitar, piano, and several layers of his own vocals. In 2017, he released his debut LP, titled Jardín, which was quick to receive praise from critics and fans alike. His aim was to assemble music that showed the beauty of life and the exhilaration of growth, much like that of a garden. Earlier this year, he released the single, “Golden Wings”, an upbeat track that illuminated his pop sensibilities and left his audience wanting more.

Gabriel came into our very own Studio 1A and performed three songs of his and shared a bit about the interworking of his artistry. You can check all that out and more below!
